Hello on a very wet morning here in England. I have not heard of thoose books or the author but I will keep them in mind for when I finish all the other books I have from the Library, ket alone ones I got as gifts or the one I will soon be ordering in the next 'No. 1 Ladies Detective ' series. I have them all. Have not been reading nin bed either, too cold to do that. Last night we re-watched on t.v. the fiilm 'Elizabeth' It was so good and interesting as I have read several books about the period since the last time I have slept through it, so I recognised more of the names of men that lived in that era at the English Court. It begs watching again at some point too.
My hands are really cold again this a.m. here at the computer. I have so many shelfari friends that It is hard to get to everyone often but thanks for dropping in.
Hello, how are you? I am not reading a great deal right now though I have just finished The Marriage Bureau for Rich People. A light-hearted read but interesting, nonetheless. O am making so many birthday cards right now that there is little time for any readin. I Do have a Novel about Queen Elizabeth 1st. and The Six Wives of Henry VIII when I can get at them , Library not owned. Nice morning here.
Hi muffinkath7, Not too many places. Toronto for starters, that was in the 1960s, 3 times. then again twice in the 1990s.
I diverted one weekend down to New York with my two friends, we drove all the way from Toronto through the night. Through customs at Niagara and then down the what is now I suppose called the I. whichever one, down , through a the Catskills. We went over the Brooklin Bridge early in the morning and ended up in Manhatten. IT was hot, and full of people as it was the Worlds Fair at the time so we were very lucky to get a suite in Manhatten. SO hot. I could see the Empire State from the window of the twelfth floor of the hotel.
WEnt to NIagara in 1960 and then again in 1997. GREAT!
The last two visits were to Penentanguishene, slightly north west of Toronto by about 100 miles. Lovely country town on the side of the lake.
Wanted to stop by and say love your avatar! :) By the way if you are interested, I administer a group called Across the Pond. It is a great group with a bunch of great people who love to talk about the UK (literature, regency, culture, etc). We would love to have you there!
