6 Days to Go…..

6 days until Small Business Saturday.  I am so excited to be participating this year.  This has been on my “goal” list for many years.

What we are offering…


November Road by Lou Berney

A great book feels like the story is real.  This book felt like the story was real.  The one thing I’ve learned, though, is that you can always tell a male from a female author because the males seem to forget about the drama that goes along with being a female and a mother.  

All of the other reviews I read basically say what I want.  This is also part of the reason I don’t go over the plot.

If you have watched or read 11-22-63 by Stephen King this book would be right up your alley.

This is the first book in a long time that I haven’t just put it down after a few pages.  Go and read.




‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’: A Poem by John Keats

One of my favorites and true for all of art.

Interesting Literature

‘Beauty is truth, truth beauty’: this, the words on John Keats’s Grecian urn proclaim, is all we know, and all we need to know. ‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’ is one of the most celebrated poetic achievements of the Romantic poet John Keats (1795-1821), so is perfect for our next stop on this poetry odyssey, Post A Poem A Day, which sees us sharing some of our favourite classic poems. And ‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’ is classic in more than one sense.

‘Ode on a Grecian Urn’ by John Keats

Thou still unravish’d bride of quietness,
       Thou foster-child of silence and slow time,
Sylvan historian, who canst thus express
       A flowery tale more sweetly than our rhyme:
What leaf-fring’d legend haunts about thy shape
       Of deities or mortals, or of both,
               In Tempe or the dales of Arcady?
