One of my stocking stuffers at Christmas was a copy of Hello! Canada. The horoscope, unfortunately, resonated with me: "The task that lies before you may look so vast that you're tempted to give up, but ...you can throw your pessimism away. So roll up your sleeves! There's work to be done and you have the … Continue reading Pick-Me-Ups
Wine and Armitage... two of my favourite things. In the summer, we travel every year to the Okanagan wine region of British Columbia for a beach vacation. Of course, we always have to throw in a few visits to the local wineries! Many of the wineries are located on high ground, with the best views … Continue reading Of Wine and Armitage
What a treat to see Richard Armitage in a story on TV (and so animated too! Lol), rather than just hear him in an audiobook!

**SPOILERS** On December 18, the final episode of Berlin Station Season 2 aired in Canada. A third season has now been announced, although it is not clear who will be returning. The first five episodes of Season 2 were fairly uneven, as I described in an earlier post. But as in Season 1, the pacing … Continue reading Right. So, That BS Season Is Done.
**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

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
