BLOGGING: It's Tuesday, Where Are You?


Hey! Happy Canada Day, one day early. On July 1st, Canada will turn 142 years old. The original meeting to start the confederation of Canada was held in Charlottetown, PEI, just down the street from my house. We celebrate Canada Day at a potluck party at my parents house, playing bocce and lawn darts - the illegal and very dangerous kind that you can't buy anymore! Then we'll go to a soccer game my son is playing in, and then maybe we'll try to find a spot to see the fireworks from. Hopefully, the weather will cooperate.

Great job on the voting for the Bookwords! However, as of last night, it was still tied. sigh. So, we need an odd number of people of go and vote and break that tie. Not just the odd people, you are welcome to come and vote as well, but an odd number of people, five or seven, to break the tie. See if you can manage that. thanks. Results to follow on late Wednesday or early Thursday.

In reading, I am in England, present day and my sister has just returned home after over fifty years away. We haven't talked in all that time. I've been happy here in our estate, studying moths. It should be an interesting weekend. (The Sister, by Poppy Adams)

Bobby Orr, as a twelve year old playing bantam hockey in Parry Sound, has started attracting the attention of some hockey scouts. The poor hapless Bruins are hoping to sign him before anyone else discovers him. (Searching for Bobby Orr, Stephen Brunt)

I'm in the stressful land of between books. I just finished Christine Feehan's Murder Game and J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets (for the 2nd time). Later today, I'll be starting Confessions of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler.

oh, I read "The Sister"--it was very intriguing. I've been waiting to hear someone else's thoughts on it. I hope you post a review or please email me when you finish.

I am here

How appropriate so near to Canada Day you're reading about Bobby Orr, eh? ;)

Me? I'm between Vegas and L.A. on Zzyxx Road.

Happy Canada Day to you, Raidergirl. A few years ago Candleman and I were in Canada (Vancouver Island) on Canada Day. We enjoyed the fireworks. Then on the 4th of July we were on a ferry heading back to the US and watched the U.S. fireworks from the ferry. I hope our countries will always be friends. I love Canada.

I look forward to your review of The Sister. It sounds good.

Almost forgot to tell you were I am today. I'm in a very scary situation in southern California. A bad man is terrorizing my family. (Relentless by Dean Koontz)

I'm in Connecticut. I'm reading "Harriet and Isabella" by Patricia O'Brien. The book is about Henry Beecher, Harriet Stowe's brother. Really, it's about the whole family.

I am in Victorian England at the girl school I attend. I also have access to the realms where there is lots of magic, but not everything is good, and I control the magic.

Your where are you sounds great. I've never heard of this book, but am going to have to find out more about it. Sounds pretty good.
