But same response applies. "Honest" ? Really?
And you hear people say they would want a "businessman"...
It is on Sunday night, with a rerun of the previous week's episode on Tues and Sat, on our PBS (WGBH). So this Sat should be episode 2, Sun should be episode 3.
A boorish blowhard, willfully ignorant and intellectually bereft, more like it.
That's the kind of thing you want representing your country and holding its highest...

Thanks guys, and Happy Canada Day to my fellow Canuckians! :)
I have both 'All the Light' and 'Narrow Road' on my bedside table, and still haven't started either of them, while I drown myself in lighter reading.

'Life After Life' was one of my favourites, so I have been looking forward to reading this one.

I don't feel bad either, I read a lot, and sometimes I find your brain just...

Some women got the right to vote in 1917, and then 'all' women over the age got the right to vote in 1921.
'All' women except Aboriginal and Asian.
I loved Georgette Heyer!
Since I continue to have jumped the shark in my reading, I know just what you mean.
Up thread we have talked about Jilly Cooper and Fiona Walker books. Big, fat,...
We do have equal rights guaranteed under The Charter of Rights and Freedoms.

Congratulations to my American friends!
Friday was a very emotional day, I went riding with some friends, both of whom were riding young daughters of my stallion, and then came home to President...
Sadly, it seems to be so. :(

So far, 'Crimson Fields' has grabbed my attention more, but both are good.
