I recently have been reading a blog called The Broke and the Bookish and she coordinates a “Top Ten Tuesday” post each week relating to books. Sounds like fun, no? Today’s topic is “Top Ten Popular Authors I’ve Never Read.” I figured this wouldn’t be too difficult. I’m not usually up on mainstream bestsellers, so […]

Rebecca by Daphne Du Maurier “Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.” So the second Mrs. Maxim de Winter remembered the chilling events that led her down the turning drive past the beeched, white and naked, to the isolated gray stone manse on the windswept Cornish coast. With a husband she barely knew, […]
This morning, my head is full of broadway songs. My children have been picking out their audition songs for the summer musical and by default, that means the songs are stuck in my head.
