Tea for (forty) two!

posted by Jeanne Munn Bracken

As advertised in this space a few weeks ago, we decided at the Lincoln, Massachusetts library that Afternoon Tea is a lost art and we wanted to find it again. The idea came from our Mystery Monday book group; we read books by theme each year and, although we have not chosen ulinary mysteries yet, we are well aware of (and fond of) that subgenre.

Death, Be Not Proud

Posted by Jeanne Munn Bracken

The title words by John Donne, written four centuries ago (I looked it up) have been in my mind lately. We mystery lovers deal with, wallow in, foster death in many ways--with humor, with tragedy, with a certain "he deserved it" hubris.

posted by Jeanne Munn Bracken

Today's, blog... is about researchers of easy virtue. The ones who go directly to the New York Times website to find articles and other information. The ones who pay for articles rather than looking for them as freebies. The ones who have a house full of books they've read once but will never touch again unless they dust them once in a while or pack them to move. (Do you know what it costs to move books? We are already weeding out books…

Why I probably won't be on Jeopardy! any time soon

posted by Jeanne Munn Bracken

I've been a fan of Jeopardy! almost forever. Heck, I remember Alex Trebek when he had a cute moustache. (Doesn't he look naked without it?)Alex_trebek

Sometimes I know the questions to the answers. Sometimes I don't. I call out my questions to help out the contestants, even if the time/space continuum is not on my side. Friends and family…
