Fidder on the Roof - Crown Uptown

I have always enjoyed the play "Fiddler on the Roof". Perhaps because I was an usher many years ago when my high school performed it. I think I saw it about 8 times while ushering, and it remains my favorite play years later. Briefly, it's about a family living in Anatevka, a small village in Russia and it takes place in 1905, on the eve of the Russian Revolutionary Period. Corby took me and the kids to see it last night, and my best friend Melody came along for the fun. The food was good and the play was wonderful. Rob Summers (Tevye) was great. Beth Wise played Golde, and she is a wonderful actress but I wasn't all that impressed with her singing voice. The rest of the cast was really good, and we thoroughly enjoyed the production. Surprisingly, Kaleb thought it was great, but Kaitlin was less impressed (and she has a musical background!). We had great seats, right down by the stage. I would recommend this play to anyone. However, if you want to see it, make reservations now. It ends on November 9.

Here is the girls side of the table:Now the guys side:
I am currently listening to the new Pink CD "Funhouse". I've only recently heard her music (where I have been the last few years?), but I've bought 2 of her CD's now and totally love both of them! Yes, that's a parental advisory sticker. I figure since the kids are 17 and 19 (almost 18 and 20) we can live with the lyrics. They're not all that bad anyway.

Current read is Lost Souls by Lisa Jackson. I'm about halfway through, and it's a pretty good read. It's based on a vampire theme, but the evil is strictly of this world rather than supernatural.

And if you haven't already voted (I did by mail) get out there Tuesday and vote. No matter who your choice is, you can't complain if you don't vote!!!!!

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS

5 STARS

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.

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...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TOP 10:
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?)
6. Survivor - UGH - I HATE ALMOST ALL REALITY SHOWS!
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…

Blood on the Tracks

By Barbara Nickless
Publisher: Thomas & Mercer
Expected Publication Date: October 1, 2016
Genre: Mystery/suspense

From the back cover:
"A sadistic murder draws a war-haunted cop into the deadly world of a rail-riding gang."

My review:
Sydney Rose Parnell, a special agent for the railroad police, is suffering from PTSD after her time in the war. So when she is drawn into a murder mystery, the ghosts that haunt her appear more and more often. She is looking for the murderer of a young lady who helped the homeless. With the help of her K9 companion, Clyde, who is also a war veteran; she sets out to solve the crime. There are a lot of twists and turns along the way.

I loved Sydney's strength and determination, even though she had bouts of mental fragility from the war. Who wouldn't? I highly recommend this author's first book.
