Just finished "Wine and War" by Don and Petie Kladstrup. It's the story of WWII in France, and what happened to the wines. It reads like an adventure novel, but it's all true. Hair-raising.

Now I'm catching up on some professional periodicals.

Wine is the food that completes the meal.

actually, just looking for a part-time job until fall. I hope to do some work at the local community college, tutoring, basic cooking type classes, as well as some centering on culture and cuisine. Applying for a security position at an art museum later today.

Wine and War and Look me in the Eye are both ones I'll look for. Right now the book I'm finishing reading aloud is Galway Bay by Mary Pat Kelly. The thing is it that's a long book (551 pages), which when I'm reading to myself is no biggie. But try reading aloud. For reading myself, I've been sticking to "fun" murder mysteries and other kinds of light reading. My blind older lady friend I read to has even gotten tired of the Irish and their Troubles, so I'm going to read the last 30 pages myself and just tell her how it ends (I suspect she'd have liked it if I'd have done that a week or so ago). I also looked up one aspect of the book (a historical novel) to find out if it actually happened. She usually isn't big on novels, so I want to let her know about this particular episode in history.

Holy Christmas!!! Just finished eating, I mean reading, John Grisham's The Appeal. What a book! Couldn't put it down and it's sooooooo possible it's scary. Loved it. Grisham did it again.

My latest books I'm reading... I just gave away about 50-60 books at work to my coworkers. Have started culling down the massive collection.

I also just got a subscription to and all back issues of Super swa nky stuff!
