Fun little series
Madness in Christmas River: A Christmas Cozy Mystery (Christmas River Cozy) - Meg Muldoon

Cinnamon Peters runs a pie shop and is getting hitched to the sheriff during the Christmas season. Not really a great time in a place called Christmas River where they really do up Christmas, then Daniel has to go back to California to help with a case.

 

While he was gone all sorts of things happen. Cinnamon's cousin goes missing, her car gets vandalized and her dog hurt. Her ex is in town causing problems and it's a lot for her to handle. She has to figure out what is going on before something worse happens. 

 

I like Cinnamon and some of the regulars around Christmas River. Though it was short it still had a pretty good mystery. I was pretty sure I knew who might be in on things but I wasn't sure why until it clicked at the end. :) 

 

It's a short cozy read/listen which is what I needed in between a couple of longer listens. 

 

I have really enjoyed the narration of Randye Kaye. She does a good job with the voices.

Hurricanes and Nervous Energy

Well Harvey is breathing hot and heavy down my neck, it's just grown to a level 4 hurricane. I've been cutting plants down all day, to save what I can. I couldn't let some of the herbs go unused, not my lemon verbena, my basil, my sage....I am making jellies, lots and lots. The first batch is done, lemon verbena, Yums. I have a huge tub of tea too. I'll be canning as long as I have electricity. I'm too nervous to read, or sit.

Reading progress update: I've read 16 out of 276 pages.
The Good Nurse: A True Story of Medicine, Madness, and Murder - Charles Graeber

A lovely true crime read for my lunch break. It's okay so far, curious to see when the crimes start. This guy definitely reads like a serial killer.

Madness by Marya Hornbacher
Madness: A Bipolar Life - Marya Hornbacher
  • Madness: A Bipolar Life
  • Marya Hornbacher
  • Paperback: 320 pages
  • Publisher: Mariner Books; Reprint edition (April 1, 2009)
  • ISBN-10: 0547237804
  • ISBN-13: 978-0547237800

 

I actually didn't finish this book. Marya Hornbacher writes well, and goes into depth about what depression and bipolar, but after the first 3rd of the book, it seemed long. I could feel her pain dealing with her mental illness. I don't think I was ready to read the whole book. I've not really ever been a strong non fiction reader so i'm not sure if it were that or the subject matter.

Standing Up To the Madness: Ordinary Heroes In Extraordinary Times
Standing Up To the Madness: Ordinary Heroes In Extraordinary Times - Amy Goodman,David Goodman Q:
It is business as usual in our one-party state.
(c)
Q:
In 1942, a group of students and their professor at the University of Munich in Germany responded to the tyranny and oppression of the Nazi regime by secretly publishing and distributing a series of six leaflets. This nonviolent resistance group called itself the White Rose. Its leaders included Hans and Sophie Scholl, a brother and sister who were devout Christians, and philosophy professor Kurt Huber. The students typed the leaflets, ran off copies, and secretly sent them by courier to cities around Nazi Germany to be left in public places. They wanted to ensure that Germans could never say that they didn’t know what was happening in their name. And they hoped to inspire their fellow citizens to rise up and actively oppose the Nazi regime.
Hans and Sophie Scholl and Kurt Huber were caught by the Gestapo while distributing their sixth leaflet. They were tried for political crimes in the Volksgerichtshof, the so-called People’s Court, and beheaded. Today, numerous buildings and streets in Germany are named for the Scholls and Huber. Polls show that they are considered to be among the most admired people in all of German history.
As their fourth leaflet implored:We will not be silent. We are your guilty conscience. The White Rose will not leave you in peace!

Q:
is up. You gotta go,” he said. “You can’t be in here protesting.” The silver-haired vet was baffled. Then the officer pointed to the problem: Ferner’s black T-shirt said “Veterans For Peace.” It featured a picture of a dove carrying an olive branch, the logo of the national peace group.This could mean only one thing: The aging seaman was a threat to national security.Ferner tried to convince Adkins to go back to his duties “guarding against serious terrorists.”The officer flipped open his badge and said, “No, not with that shirt. You’re protesting and you have to go.” Ferner facetiously suggested the cop arrest him for his T-shirt. Within seconds, the veteran was wearing handcuffs and heading to jail. The charges: disorderly conduct, a weapons charge (Ferner was carrying a small Swiss Army knife), and criminal trespassing. He was fined $275.“I’m sure I could go back to Officer Adkins’s fiefdom with a shirt that said, ‘Nuke all the hajjis,’ or ‘Show us your tits,’ or any number of truly obscene things and no one would care.“I have to believe that this whole country has not yet gone insane, just the government,” said this veteran for peace. “This kind of behavior can’t be tolerated. It must be challenged.”
