Thank you! Lets hope they were smuggling the kitten to an invalid on another floor. ;)

Swinging a kitten, aiieeeee! But laughing at the wig story, thanks. Its not what I need to figure out what was being renovated in Victorian times but the stories sound entertaining! Whats the title?

Oh, that sounds perfect, Louise! I do have the maps link, thank you. Amazing amounts of material there. I just need to carve out some time to work through all this!

oh, I'm so so sorry about the allergy attack! That's just a weeping shame. and good luck on the organization. It doesn't help that I have entirely too many devices and they turn ugly on me if I move things around too much. ;)

Organization is very definitely not my forte, but in digging into this book, I figured out how to do screen shots of pages I might need! I'm quite excited. Now, if only I can remember how to do it again and find them when I need them...

Oh, I hope you get to go! But I don't want to torment you by sending you into bookstores. I have a list of URLS offline that I need to start working through, if I can just find the time. But if you should ever happen to see a nice one that I might order... drop me a note!

Edinburgh--The image of an ancient city crushed together between a fort castle on a hill and a palace a mile away, with the New City slowly forming beneath it, has made me crazy until I could actually see it for myself Continue reading

LOL, Sue, yeah, MJ and I are pretty invisible around here. ;) I haven't read Cherryh in a while. I need to go back and take another look, thanks! And Karen is always most excellent.

I love hearing your side of the process, Sue! My copyeditors have saved me time and again, although occasionally they have gone a trifle overboard in their eagerness. I liked the one who tried to give my protags a better route into Charlotte. ;) But I've been blessed with good editors. Some people aren't as lucky.

Thank you for noticing that we're trying! I know, as I write, details change. (Do not ask how often I change character names! Or why) That cheat sheet I keep beside my WIP is a life saver, if only I'd remember to use it!

ARGHHH! My total and complete sympathy. I learned after my first series to keep track of descriptions of rooms, pets, and places, but when you're in the middle of writing, it's not easy to remember to go make a note elsewhere. We need plug-in brains.

Lest you think I’ve given up research to happily write contemporaries for which I ought to know all there is to know, here’s just a tiny part of my search history for this book: poisonous plants, Creole cooking, ghost bikes, contemporary slang, anise, chaparral, health food bars... Continue reading

Spain and Machu Pichu are on mine. We did Ephesus in Turkey and that really is worth a trip!

Their government isn't without its problems, like any other. But I sure wish we could distill whatever it took to turn them into a productive peaceful country and spray it everywhere!

Traveling with friends is the best way to go! We've not done Puerto Rico yet and we've never had much time for Oxford, so you're ahead of us there.

each trip takes one step at a time. Have a passport, decide on a date and a destination. The rest fills itself in. You are fortunate to know people in so many places!

People like you open the eyes of everyone around them. Travel is a blessing and I'm so glad you're ticking off your bucket list. We figure we'll spend all our money on travel now while we're healthy and worry about what happens when we're not later. ;)

I wish it was possible to pack everything we saw into a blog, but even a book wouldn't cover it. And no matter where we go, it's never enough time to see all that's to be seen. But dipping our toes in the water is far better than never having seen anything besides our own front yard. I'm not sure a lifetime would be enough to explore the British Isles!

Travel may not be about books or history, but to me, it’s as educational and interesting. Continue reading

Chad Mitchell Trio turned James into a lovely song. For a long time I wasn't aware of the origin and hoped it was a folk song about some actual incident, until I went hunting for the history. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=axPaGP1UEqc

Hey Kathy! I’m at the airport now, not being anywhere near as constructive. Good luck on the paper clearing, shudder Pat
