  1. second name is Antonio Cromartie? Yaj luctre
  2. Strange games today. I thought Jacksonville and Chicago were considered to be top defenses. What happened to them? 

  3. I'm not sure what to think about this season's "Blacklist." Red is great, as usual, but the show has gone way off with Liz going rogue. Something is bound to give; Liz can't keep this up without certain circumstances. I liked Tom, what am wondering if he is worth all the trouble.

      Hey there TS, 

       

      Thanks for your views on "Blacklist". Out of respect for you, I need to checkout that show & give it another whirl. Perhaps, I was too hasty with my first look at it. 

  4. I've been reading Terry Pratchett's "Discworld' novels. They are recommended for anyone who enjoys fantasy mixed with satire. Strange characters, imaginative plots and very entertaining. 

  5. Science fiction fans: a recommended read is Dan Simmons "Hyperion" series. Starts with "Hyperion"; The Fall of Hyperion" ; "Endymion" and "The Rise of Endymion." It was written in the 90's, but should still be available. One of the best series I've ever read., just brilliant. It needs to be read in order; otherwise would be a bit confusing.

      Thanks for the recommendation TS. I admire individuals who still read books in the 21st Century for leisure as opposed to say forced occupational reading alone that is. 

  6. I just finished reading the book "Claude and Camille (author is Stephanie Cowell)" about the Impressionist artist, Monet. It explains his paintings and his relationships with other artists and his one love, Camille Doncieux. Anyone who's admired Monet's water lilies and Gardens at Giverny might like this book. Very well written.

  7. I just finished reading Anne Rice's newest Vampire Chronicles book "Prince Lestat and the Realms of Atlantis." I don't know where she is going with this new one. I don't care about the replimoid creatures, and I miss Lestat being the Brat Prince he was in past books. I read the whole thing, but this latest just didn't cut it for me.

      I didn't know she had a new book.  That's too bad.  Rice can go on and on and on about things that you don't care about.  I remember one book where she wouldn't stop taking about the wall paper! That said, I loved the Vampire Chronicles so this is disappointing to hear

      You could try reading it; maybe you would like it more that I did. However, this isn't the same as her former Vampire Chronicles. This is kind of a mixture of science fiction and gothic. Much of this book relies on the explanation of cells and genetics. Depends on your interest in those kind of things.
