Turkey Time

I was at a church dinner Saturday, and this was one of the desserts on offer. Or so I was told – I’m not a dessert person and didn’t even look to see what was available. Someone did bring this back to my table, so I snapped the pictures before it was eaten. Just for […]

Storm Rising

It was fast paced from start to finish. And the ending couldn’t come soon enough. There are two possible reasons for me to finish a book I have been given for review. The first is enthusiasm.

Given his accent, his mother probably never called him Brad. He also said he had never heard of Mumbai and Kolkata, […]
