How fun, Ellen! I'd love to see the Winterthur museum. They have some lovely quilts and other needlework there.

Kathy, so glad you found the Senior Complex.  My DMIL has Alzheimer and it is hard on the family to see her go through this stage.

Forgot to mention.  We are going to Winterthur today to see a Downton Abbey exhibition.

I'm reviewing YA novels for DGS British Lit.  Rosemary Sutcliffe has written an amazing number of historical novels including versions of Beowulf, Odyssey and the Aeneid.  I'm sure I have said this before but in PA the homeschool diploma requires students read 25 books each year for one of the English requirements.  My DGS is a whiz at math and science especially anything computer related but isn't a strong reader due to mild dyslexia.  We are a conservative family.  These children were raised without tv.  Finding appropriate literature is a delight and a challenge.  We don't avoid classic literature because of subject material but sometimes the challenge of reading the text isn't worth the time it takes my DGS.  The story of Beowulf is more important than reading the translation.

So sorry to hear that you have been going through such a hard time with your dear husband, Kathy. I really hope the move to a new place will help bring some much needed peace to the both of you, and your daughter, too.

I finished Death Comes to Pemberley, and I really enjoyed it, thanks for the recommendation. I have been listening to House of Secrets by Chris Colombus, it is a YA novel, and I think it is way too gory and not very well written, I will finish it, but I don't think I would read anymore in the series.

I haven't read the that one by Fannie Flagg, yet, but it sounds like something I would really enjoy.

Just finished Fannie Flagg's new book, the All Girl Filling Station's Last Reunion.  It was a good story and funny.
