I rather like that spelling of "where." ;) The digs in Orkney are beyond fascinating and so very meticulous! I know Ann Cleaves is the famous writer most people speak of from the area. I'll have to look for Maclean!

If only we could spend months... A few days isn't enough to do it justice.

You're welcome! I wish I had more space and had kept a diary each day, but there was never enough time!

But it's wonderful you had a chance to see what you have. So many people don't even try. I'd done the same as you, a whirlwind tour, so it was wonderful to spend some actual time there. I'll blog on Edinburgh next--now there's one fabulous city!

it was delightfully cool, the perfect timing! I don't like cold and had taken a lot of layers, but didn't need anything but the occasional jacket or scarf. But you have to be ready for nearly 24 hour night in winter!

Since my camera wasn't working, Don took the photos. He likes rocks. But it was a lovely adventure!

impressive! And I hear ya about all those accumulated Kindle dips amounting to several books. I would like to delete them from my reader, but then I wouldn't know not to buy them again. ;)

Isn't she a wonder? I don't even like violence, and I still gobble up everyone of Briggs' books!

Mary Jo's resident mayhem expert will make certain we're talking to pub locals everywhere we go!

oh, I love this idea! I'm passing it on to the other wenches. And we're hoping to make a quick trip into York, so I hope the Chocolate Center is near where we'll be. Thank you!

ah, so I'm preaching to the choir in your case. I hope I didn't go far astray! You are fortunate to have so many historic sites at hand. I know I drool with envy at the description of Nicola's trips around the UK!

LOL, we'd make great travel companions. And a museum with a good restaurant and gift shop is invaluable!

these days, it's a bit of a challenge to find something unique to an area that you can't buy online, which is why we spend a lot of time in restaurants!

eating locally, definitely! A different place every day, preferably. ;) I'm not sure how many of the local sites we'll fit in since we'll be spending the weekend at the conference, but we'll see what we can do!

I'm not sure San Fran was ever a sleepy little manor house but yeah, Leeds was the tech forerunner!

Since a posse of wenches will be attending the RNA conference in Leeds, England this month, and we’ll be visiting some historical sites while there, I thought I should brush up on the history of Leeds. Continue reading

Wow, Sue, I'm glad you're reading Briggs AFTER Topaz! I'm not sure anyone can compare to Briggs. But thank you so much for the kind words!

Yeah, it's hard to find a good fantasy of any sort right now, isn't it? Just keep looking around. There is good stuff out there, just hard to find.

I must have missed the Pepper discussion. I just popped over to Amazon and see lots of bargains and snapped up Book #1 to try. I read some reviews on the Clinton book and it sounds as if Clinton sat down on Patterson and his ghostwriters to get it right. Let us know if it holds up!

As always, a fabulous list and a good reminder of some old favorites I need to pull out and re-read, thank you!
