Jon & Kate Plus 8

I've never hidden my love for the TLC show Jon & Kate Plus 8. It's the story of a young couple who have difficulty conceiving. Through IUI, an intrauterine insemination, she became pregnant with twin girls. When they decided they wanted one more child, they tried again. However, this time she became pregnant with sextuplets. Though doctors wanted them to do selective reduction, they refused, and they now have 8 healthy children. The book is a very good insight into their life from the time they met, got married, had twins and sextuplets, all within 5 years. When watching the show, I sometimes find Kate to be overbearing and mean to Jon, but after reading the book, I understand a little more about why she is that way. They were meant for each other because Jon is very mellow and laid back. They seem like a "real" family, and it's fascinating to watch how they survive! And yes, I think it should be called survival. The sextuplets recently turned 4, so I don't know how much longer they will do the show. Anyway, I have the book if anyone wants to borrow it. It's a quick read...

Are you all as sick as I am with the Madonna divorce? Who cares? I'm not and never been a big Madonna fan anyway, but the media just goes way overboard. How long have they really been separated, is she having an affair with A-Rod, who is going to get the kids, how much is she worth? UGH! Enough is enough!

ya know, i used to like Madonna, but in recent years she has just really gotten on my nerves. Like that stupid fake English accent. What was that about?

I don't know how anyone does it with that many kids - having two is enough to make me crazy!
The whole Madonna thing didn't really interest me. I half expect celebrities to get divorced so I am rarely shocked.

you don't know for sure if she was having an affair with a-rod

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

St. Martin's Press
November 1, 2016

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.
The Nanny Arrangement

Entangled Publishing

Hannah has been best friends with Deacon for years, ever since she befriended him and he became her protector. Now she's been asked to be the nanny for Deacon's son, while he's embarking on a tour with a famous country band. Hannah has loved him for years, and she's determined to make him see her as more than a best friend. Do her tactics work? Does Deacon's upbringing (absent dad, alcoholic mother) prevent him from being able to maintain a relationship?

I loved the interaction that Hannah had with Deacon, as well as his band-mates wives and girlfriends. First book I've read by Harris, and I enjoyed it so much that I need to go back and read You're Still The One, the first book in the series.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…
