Good gravy!

KFC is making a gravy-scented candle. Best idea ever? Or not?

Here’s an interesting book storage idea.

I must admit, though, I’m ambivalent. On the one hand, you’d have more room for books. (Always a good thing.) On the other hand, wouldn’t they get (ugh) dirty with all the foot traffic? What say you — yes or no?

Trombones! Who knew?

I’ve never been much of a fan of the trombone, but when I saw fellow author Beverly Jenkins mentioning on Twitter a collaboration of 24 trombonists playing Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody,” well, I had to check it out.

Color me impressed! Honestly, I had no idea trombones were capable of such finesse and nuance. Want to check it out? Click here to see the video. And enjoy!

Four of my favorite words . . .

“Avon.” “Historical.” “Romance.” “Readers.”

They’re even better when combined into a single phrase . . . and denoting a fabulous new Facebook group!

“I believe that there is nobody for anyone”

Just one of the relentlessly cynical things Frank says in Destination Wedding, a quirky, funny movie starring Wynona Ryder (Lindsay) and Keanu Reeves (Frank). They play two sidelined misfits at a — yes — destination wedding who, despite themselves, ultimately create a connection. Or at least the beginnings of a connection.

Hope really does spring eternal. :)
