I wanted to shake up my life and go sailing (or learn on the job, so-to-speak) so headed to Florida to crew on a catamaran. This is about how it went or, rather, didn't - and my life since. Hopefully it will lead to a catamaran on the clear aqua blue waters of the Caribbean Sea, watching the sunset, a coconut rum and coke in hand. You must START AT THE BEGINNING of the blog, April 2009, to get the whole story...

I am reading a LOT these days. I am working my way through the Outlander series by Diana Gabaldon - I am on book 3; I just finished reading An Embarrassment of Mangoes by Ann Vanderhoof - a MUST read for anyone who is or wants to sail the Caribbean or who loves to cook. While at the library, picking up that last book, I also purchased 4 books from the retired rack. So now I have some great summer reading ahead of me. When I am not working, that is. I just got a call for a 6 week kids show that starts a week from Monday. So that will keep me out of books for a bit.

I set aside my books yesterday for almost two hours to watch a movie my son recommended to me. It's called The Secret of Oz and I am writing about it here to say that EVERYONE should see this movie. Halfway through I found myself very angry; by the end I was frustrated that the solution to the national debt most countries face, as well as our tanking economies, is SO simple and SO profoundly effective. I BEG you to get hold of this movie (there's a link below direct to Amazon where you can purchase it) and watch it as soon as you can. Ignorance, in this case, is NOT bliss.

Clink on the link to MY STORE - Sandra's Selections, for a complete selection of the Outlander series as well as all my other favourite books (and other fav stuff!).

Here's my Amazon Store called Sandra's Selections, full of my favourite things and constantly updating it as I discover more fav's. It's more for fun than anything as I've never made a cent off of it.
