Welcome to the round up of posts here on Smorgasbord that you might have missed… The week has been unremarkable here except for the fact that it is June and it has not stopped raining for a week, with at least another week to go… and the heating is still on twice a day. This […]

Welcome to the round up of posts that you might have missed during the week on Smorgasbord. We have had another busy week on the back garden work… a little unpredictable but we are fitted in between other jobs, weather dependent such as gathering silage for next winter’s feed. We live in the country and […]

We all have our favorite bloggers. Some of them become our friends. Some don’t. Some bloggers are part of our daily ritual. Others–like a favorite cousin that we rarely see–drop in sporadically. But we are always happy when they do. And we hope they feel the same about us. Some bloggers teach. Some merely entertain. […]

Welcome to the round up of posts on the blog you might have missed this week. We currently have a digger in the back garden, a cement filled trench awaiting blocks for a retaining wall and mounds of earth, that I am sure will be turned into a wonderfully landscaped vista by the end of […]

Reading a Raymond Chandler novel today is like a genre mashup of poetry, historical fiction, and crime mystery all rolled into one. Take The Long Goodbye (1953) for instance. Raymond Chandler’s hardboiled narration is charming to read. I doubt that was the goal when he wrote it, but sixty-odd years later, reading the lyrical sentences had […]

It didn’t of course, and this novel by fellow blogger Jack Eason offers a fascinating theory about why there was no Mayan Apocalypse. Combining archaeology with adventure, then adding a touch of science fiction, this enjoyable roller-coaster of a story packs […]
