Florida Work Trip

I found out on Wednesday, January 4th that I would be attending a workshop in Melbourne, Florida with 5 others from the Eagle. We are getting a new advertising system, and this was the set-up workshop and training on how to build the system to work for us.

Our flight left at 6am on Monday, January 16th, and we went straight into the workshop after checking into our hotel - Crowne Plaza.

It was a very INTENSE two weeks of work, and there is much more to be done.

Corby flew down late Thursday afternoon - the workshop stopped at 2pm on Friday so the folks who were flying home for the weekend could leave. Three of us stayed, and three in our group flew home. I had opted to stay because it didn't make sense to fly home for 36 hours and then get back on a plane to Florida. We enjoyed a lot of rest and relaxation, and went to Cocoa Beach on Saturday afternoon.

The weather was beautiful the entire time, and I started my day watching the sun rise over the ocean.

We saw dolphin fins several times, and one jumped out of the water the first week we were there.

We worked late every day, so we didn't get to do a lot of sightseeing. We were all pretty tired after the long days!

Cheryl, Molly and I got a chance to know each other even better than we already did!

The next 5 months are going to be insanely busy. There is a lot of work to be done, and I have to keep up with my regular job. But the pot at the end of the rainbow is a new advertising system, one we've needed for a long time!

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.

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…

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.
