Since things have been so dire in the news, in the world, and even in some of our own lives for a while, I thought we could use a little relief from the stress with some fun from Slim Randles. He is usually my Wednesday’s Guest, but the week got away from me, as did […]

Book Review – Sort Of

Posted by mcm0704 on October 6, 2013 |

Since I have no review ready and my friend Carl Brookins has not sent a review recently, I decided I would connect you to a few book review sites. I have always enjoyed the reviews in newspapers and was even known to write a few for a couple of Dallas newspapers. Of course, that was […]

A to Z Challenge – J is for Jonson

Posted by mcm0704 on April 11, 2013 |

When I went looking for a playwright with a name that begins with the letter ‘j’, I was surprised to find so many. I was also surprised to see that James Joyce had written plays. I didn’t know that. I am familiar with his novels, only because I was forced to read them in college, […]
