About

I try to read a book a day. I also try to make $1000 in the stock market each trading day–but that doesn’t always work out. I don’t have a cell phone (they’re instruments of the Devil) and I despise “Call Waiting” (which is cutting in line). As of December 30, 2016 I’ve Retired from a 40-year teaching career as a College Professor. I am dedicated to finding a Good Home for the 30,000 books in my basement.

    Hey George,
    Just a bit of a clarification. If you pre-ordered Peace Talks it arrives on July 14th. The following one arrives Sept. 29th. Not that you’ll have trouble finishing books in time, but I just wanted you to be ready for the new book. Talk to you soon.

    Stay safe,
    Glenn

    Hey George,
    When I signed up at Jim Butcher’s site for updates, they put this link in today with some cosplayers doing characters from the books. Thought you might like to take a look while you’re going through the books. Can’t wait for Stargirl tonight and SHIELD tomorrow.

    Stay safe,
    Glenn

      Glenn, thanks for the link! I’m looking forward to STARGIRL and AGENTS OF SHIELD, but I’m looking forward to WARRIOR NUN on Netflix starting Thursday! Stay Safe!

    Hey George,
    I was wondering about that one. There was a comic in the 90’s with that title and was bordering on too risque for most. Either way, it could be a good distraction in all this heat without a pool to cool off in. Just signed up for Disney for a month and was wondering if you had any suggestions about what was worthwhile on it. Seems like they moved a lot of the Marvel stuff on it and of course they have all the old Disney movies, but I’m not sure about the original programming. If you don’t have it, I’ll just see what Rotten Tomatoes has to say about what I find. Just watched Buffaloed the other night and was shocked at how accurate they got the locations even though they say they only shot in Toronto. Talk to you soon.

    Stay safe,
    Glenn

      Glenn, I’m going to watch an episode of WARRIOR NUN tonight. I’ll let you know what I feel about it. STARGIRL featured some new plot twists. Cindy could be a very Bad Girl! Her hooded Daddy looks menacing, too!

      We signed up for DISNEY+ in order to get HAMILTON. My wife loves it and I’m sure she’ll watch it a dozen times before we drop the subscription. Stay Safe!

    Hey George,
    I hope my wife never reads this blog, but I am not a fan of musicals and was corralled into all 2 hours and 40 minutes of Hamilton. The actors are doing a wonderful job, but honestly, I’d have rather enjoyed almost anything during that time. OK, not Jersey Shore, but almost anything else. Those books you got me in the last package was good, but I needed to pick up #1 to start reading the series. Luckily, it was available and I am enjoying Succubus Blues and have ordered up to number 6 in the series. As far as Disney + is concerned, I either have fond memories of all that they have on their paid channel or actually own the discs. I’m going to fill up some downtime with some of the animated series I didn’t get to see, but other than that, I’m not really impressed. Might look into DC Universe, but I’ll have to do my homework first. If you look at the CW site for upcoming TV series, they have several that look interesting like Kung Fu, Swamp thing(I believe the cancelled one), and several others. Funny, but they don’t let you select them to see what they are about. Tell Adrian I said, “Hi,”. 10 days till “Peace Talks”!!!!! OK, time for bed. Happy 4th of July.

    Stay safe,
    Glenn

      Glenn, I watched the first two episodes of WARRIOR NUN on Netflix. Like most of the Netflix series I’ve watched, WARRIOR NUN gets off to a slow start. I’ll watch a couple more episodes today. Hopefully the action will pick up. WARRIOR NUN is a 10 episode series. I loved AGENTS OF SHIELD but I can’t believe they killed Coulson…again! Glad you’re enjoying SUCCUBUS BLUES. It looked like your kind of book! Happy 4th! Stay safe!

    Hey George,
    Binged Warrior Nun because I wanted to avoid the heat and crappy neighbors having a “we can’t get C19 because we’re too dumb” issues. BTW, just took the dogs out and they are still shooting off fireworks… Anyway, I collected Warrior Nun and Shotgun Mary back in the day, but the Netflix take on it is totally new. I give this one a 9.5 on the WTF scale when you get to episode 10. I really like the casting, like the twists, and love the craft in “what’s coming next” affect. I admit that I was a little harsh on Hamilton due to a crappy mood and some social biases. It was good and although I probably won’t be blasting the songs in my car, it was a good show. In between all the other stuff going on, I happened on “Southern Survival” on Netflix. My take on it is that it is Mythbusters for those who really don’t care about the science and just want to know the skinny on some survival stuff. Personally, I have many questions about the Battle Box crew, but it is entertaining in a “Hold my beer” sort of way. I have some friends that would look up the site and spend mucho bucks on the stuff they recommend and others that would just be laughing at people that would be spending money on this stuff. Either way, a good watch. I hope your 4th was good and you had a few good drinks.

    Stay safe,
    Glenn

      Glenn, I’m impressed that you’re done with WARRIOR NUN. I’m planning on watching a couple of episodes today. I’m also looking forward to Charlize Theron in THE OLD GUARD which shows up on Netflix next Friday. Looks great! I’m reading GHOST STORY now. I hope to be all caught up with Harry Dresden by July 14! Stay safe!
