Warning! Spoilers ahead! Last night we watched the last two episodes of Merlin (BBC series, season 5). I was so sad to have it end. I admit it, I cried when Arthur died. The last scenes between Arthur and Merlin were really touching. I liked that last twist at the end about Merlin too. I’d… Continue reading Goodbye to Merlin
As I read a series of books about the same character, I often find myself wondering what happens in between the crises that they find themselves in. I mean, I know that to make a book exciting, your main character has to be confronted with a problem, and the story is about how they solve… Continue reading In Between the Scenes

Needless to say, I still haven't got outside to dig up the garden. I tried to go for a walk, but my face… Continue reading Spring? Really?
My second dog came to me while teaching school on the Canadian prairie. One night during the winter, when temperatures were so low they were dangerous to man and beast, I heard a scratching on my front door. No one should have been at my door. After all, there was a blizzard going on outside. … Continue reading Seeing Eye Dog?
Well, we got to enjoy a wonderful, sunny day yesterday, but today it's back to clouds and rain. Oh, well. Rain is better than snow, plus it makes all the plants grow. I especially "like to look for rainbows when ever there is rain, and ponder on the beauty of an earth made clean again."… Continue reading The End of the Rainbow
