No, you are not experiencing déjà vu... I had previously participated in the Mystery Blogger Award about a month ago. However, Luscinnia kindly nominated me again earlier this month and her questions are so interesting that I decided to give them a go. I won't repeat the technical details of the award here, but please … Continue reading Mystery Blogger Award – Revisited!
On Tumblr last week was a tag, so to speak, To be posting our favourite RA. And as Guylty suggested, bloggers need not be bested... We can post them most any old way! So, my favourite pics are the ones with the chicks -- They really are just so delightful. When I look at … Continue reading Favourite Armitage Pictures
I do love musicals, and I was lucky enough to see three different types of production in just over a week! Busy, but fun! All with good companions and none too expensive. Jersey Boys: My younger son and I went to see the touring production of Jersey Boys -- yes, that's right... my heavy-metal-loving son … Continue reading Three Musicals
**SPOILERS** So, here I am, with five episodes behind me and five (or maybe only four?) ahead. In Canada, Episode 6 airs on Monday. (Sorry... couldn't resist the cheesy title... "right" in line with those of the show.) Averaging out my scoring of the episodes, also brings me to a middling rating. Would I continue … Continue reading Berlin Station 2: Right in the Middle
For me, long before Richard Armitage, there was David Cassidy, who died yesterday at age 67. When I was a preteen/young teen, there was nothing so beautiful to me as the face and voice of David Cassidy. He had those pretty-boy looks and slim body that are so appealing to a young girl. And to … Continue reading My First Celebrity Crush Has Died

It was their first cross-border trip on their own, with my older son taking care of the driving, the hotel, and all the costs. The two of them have never hung out … Continue reading Borderline Worries

Feelings of living inside a transistor radio - Anything worth watching (in the eyes of the extrovert) must be shared with … Continue reading Common Side Effects of Living with an Extrovert

About The Mystery Blogger Award: The Mystery Blogger Award is an opportunity for a blogger to share a little about themselves, while providing links and a similar opportunity to other bloggers who write … Continue reading The Mystery Blogger Award – Thanks!
A new-to-me Richard Armitage character has just joined the ranks of my all-time favourites. And this character is not seen, but only heard! In the words of his boast asserting his warrior status, he is: Uhtred of Bebbanburg... The man who killed Ubba Lothbrokson by the sea... The man who spilled Svein of the White … Continue reading Rich’s of the Past: The Lords of the North Audiobook
Finally, I was able to watch the Season 2 premiere of Berlin Station which aired in Canada on Monday. It is so frustrating to once again be two shows behind the US, in large part because I'd love to take part in the on-line discussion when it's happening! Even avoiding the posts marked with "spoilers", … Continue reading Two Shows Behind… Berlin Station
