Chronos Origins — Latest Read

My latest read was the Chronos Origins series by Rysa Walker. I read the first book back in 2020 because it is based on an interesting take on a time travel trope. I am trying to catch up on series I have already started and this one was next.
The Good Karma Hospital

The Good Karma Hospital — What We’re Watching

We just started The Good Karma Hospital on Acorn TV. This medical drama follows doctor Ruby Walker who travels from England to India looking for a job and a distraction from a bad breakup. Arriving at an under-resourced hospital, Ruby must learn to cope with her eccentric patients and coworkers.
Jo on Acorn TV

Jo — What We’re Watching

Our latest watch is Jo, an English language French police procedural series. It stars Jean Reno in his first TV role. Some cool Paris shots, but we can really only recommend this a "filler."
Shot Glass by Russell King Banner

Shot Glass — This Friday’s Song

This Friday's song is "Shot Glass" by Russell King. This is the title track from his debut full-length album that was just released. His traditional style brought back memories of my time in Houston learning to two step, making some friends, and being smitten by more than one Texas cowgirl.
Growler Country Cuban Sandwich

A Great Cuban Sandwich

My wife Teresa and I made our second visit to Growler Country here in Tallahassee last week. We had seen their Cuban sandwich on the menu on our first visit and promised ourselves that we would be back to check it out. It exceeded our expectations.
The Chelsea Detective on Acorn

The Chelsea Detective — What We’re Watching

The Chelsea Detective is a new Acorn TV original that was released last week. It is a police procedural set in the posh Chelsea neighborhood of London. We enjoyed Episode 1 and will be watching the rest of the series.
The Interdependency by John Scalzi

The Interdependency — Latest Read

My latest read was The Interdependency series by John Scalzi. It is a space opera trilogy. I thought the writing was pretty good and world building was interesting, although Scalzi tends to be less than subtle in expressing his personal political and cultural opinions.
Luca Osteria and Bar Coral Gables

Luca — 2nd Date Night in Miami

We did a second "date night" on our recent trip to Miami. We went to Luca Osteria and Bar which is located on Giralda Ave in Coral Gables. We enjoyed the meal, the service, and the ambiance. All in all, a great "wrap" for our trip down to Miami.
