All Blackadder, All the Time


Blackadder: the ultimate edition starring Rowan Atkinson and Hugh Laurie.  All four seasons of Rowan Atkinson's satirical series featuring the Blackadder family over time.  Also includes Baldrick's family tree.

Damages: the complete third season starring Glenn Close, Tate Donovan, Campbell Scott and Martin Short. More legal drama and mean people.

Breaking Bad: the complete fourth season starring Bryan Cranston.  Meth makers maliciously make merry.

November Requiem.  The Carl D. Bradley sunk in Lake Michigan in 1958 and 33 crewmen were killed.  50 years later the ship's bell was recovered and brought to Rogers City where 23 of the dead crewmen were from.

Giant Squid.  Giant squids attack!  See the squid dissected!  Marvel at it's viciously sharp teeth!  See their massive eyes!  Link.

I Am Back From Vacation. Here Are Some Books.


Inn at Rose Harbor by Debbie Macomber.  We drove to central Kansas.

The St. Zita Society by Ruth Rendell.  I mostly stayed in Lindsborg but we did go a few places.  Like the Star Wars display here.

Large Print

Sneaky Pie for President by Rita Mae Brown.  Isn't this cat dead yet?

Last Victim by Karen Robards.   I read a Scott Phillips crime novel, The Adjustment, set in 1946 Wichita while in Kansas.

Sweet Talk by Julie Garwood.  I ate some shaved ice.  The six-year-old took at least 10 minutes to decide on a flavor.  I am not exaggerating on the time.

Back Fire by Catherine Coulter.  My wife and I had some beer at lunch.

Creole Belle by James Lee Burke.  There were five dogs at my in-laws house since my sister-in-law dropped off three of her dogs during their vacation.
