fascinating and let us know how it works out. I can steer dreams to a certain extent, but my poor tired brain really needs a rest more than it needs creative dreaming. So I'm not touching the book unless someone tells me I'll actually get more sleep. ;)

then understanding them could be fascinating! Mine are more like characters in a story doing strange and crazy things--nothing relatable.

Let us know if you learn to control your dreams! Mine are so extremely weird that I really don't want anything to do with them. ;)

Blotto was a lovely satire but not much of a mystery, IMO. But it was amusing, which is always good.

Blotto will undoubtedly be different! The Worsleys prove that high profile scandal was absolutely not invented by the media age!

This is the reason we love our readers-- we love the same books or we're all crazy. You choose. ;)

It is sad to see the end of Willig series, but all good things must end and we can be comforted knowing these will be classics for decades! c I'm critiquing some fabulous Christmas stories (not the wenches new anthology!) and remembering why I love them. Have fun!

I love Winspear and wasn't aware of this book. Must look it up, thank you!

LOL, a lovely laugh to start the morning! It was the "grotto" images that pushed me over the edge on reading euphemisms. And that manroot looks suspiciously like milkweed. ;)

wouldn't it be wonderful? But we're scattered around the world, so it would have to be an around the world trip!

Yes, I'm pretty certain the British considered the Scots bagpipe an instrument of war after the '45, and I'm not surprised they treated the Irish pipes the same. Looks like some more fun research in the future, though! I have no idea if female pipers are a new addition, but we had others on board and they were really good.

we had to wait until my husband retired before we had time for any real travel! Families take up vacation time until then. Save your pennies and you'll get there!

Knowing how English tavern songs get turned into American anthems...I wonder what the song is called in Spain!

I'm always in awe of people who can trace their ancestry. Mine pretty much stops with my grandparents, although the census report shows she's from Ireland.

just be certain to send this explanation ahead before any TV interviews so the talking heads don't sympathize with your bad pronunciation!

We'll ask Susan about the title of the song! We really need a Wench cruise--although I suspect little history researching would happen then.

We didn't have time For Cornwall--unless the Scilly Isles count-- but yes, they consider themselves Celts. But I really am fascinated to learn the Celts weren't just the islands--although that's where they were isolated longest.

Isn't it wonderful to see how cultures blend? I'm not certain how we got into the habit of dividing ourselves by countries or religions when probably half of us can be traced back to Genghis Khan!

Desks are workplaces. Feeling as if you've cleared it at the end of the day gives an air of accomplishment, but does not necessarily promote creativity. You're quite right!

oh, I'm not the only mad one in the world, thank you! Before we moved to our beach cottage, I had my huge writing desk, my old rolltop accounting desk, a bedroom writing desk, a computer desk, a rolling desk... It's impossible to have too many desks!
