Poetry, Pines, Plate Spoon


The Fall: series 1 starring Gillian Anderson. Police detective looks for serial killer in Belfast.

Still Life: a Three Pines mystery starring [Canadians]. Based off one of Louise Penny's novels. Those books do well here.

Justified: complete fifth season starring Timothy Olyphant, Walton Goggins. Good, I did not get to see the last few episodes on TV. Goggins was in the latest Machete movie.

Guardians of the Museum starring [English]. Some BBC production, not one of those Ben Stiller movies.

Captain America: Winter Soldier starring [a bunch of people]. Another super hero movie off a comic book.


The Plated Spoon and Other Tales of Sherlock Holmes edited by Loren D. Estleman. Estleman takes a break from westerns and edits a book. Estleman wrote 1978's Sherlock Holmes v. Dracula. I should hunt that one down, Fort Atkinson, Hartford and Mayville have copies.

Being Mortal: medicine and what matters in the end by Atul Gawande.  Gawande writes some excellent books.

Snowboarding: skills, training, techniques by Dan Wakeham and Sophie Everard. Would I have to wear those horribly ugly clothes?


The Dead Eat Everything by Michael Mlekoday.  How do you pronounce that name?  This won a poetry prize.  Mlekoday went to K-State.  I used to go down to Manhattan and eat at the Rock-A-Belly Deli. I don't recall if the food was good but it was a nice place and I'd order a big beer.
