I’m still recovering from my toothectomy, and it’s been a rocky week leading up to it, so I haven’t done much playing around on the ‘net. I do have some goodies for you, though.
While I was waiting for my appointment to roll around, I picked up and read a book I had bought from the Friends of Harrison County Library book box, A TRIP TO THE BEACH, by Blanchard and Blanchard. It’s the story of how a couple from Vermont opened a beach-front restaurant on a tiny island in the Caribbean in 1994. When I finished, I looked up the restaurant — and it’s still there! Not only that, they have a little lower-priced beach shack adjunct that even I could afford! Now I just need to scrape up the money to get to the Caribbean…. Anyway, look up Blanchards and enjoy window shopping. You can buy an autographed copy of the book there, too.
I think I’ve recommended The Fairy Tale Asylum before, but it bears repeating. Go back to the beginning and read forward. Marta Pelrine-Bacon is astounding. If you don’t believe me, go read this article about her at Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, which I also recommend.
