Mystery lovers

Dear mystery lovers,
I just found a new author and began her first book, Black Raven, c. 2006. Ann Cleeves is her name and her hero is Inspector Jimmy Perez. The setting: the Shetland Islands off the northern coast of Scotland. Give her a try and see what you think. I'm 73 pages into it and like it very much.

One windy snowstorm this week left beautiful swirling designs on the screens of our windows.

Here's the stained glass window in S. Rosanne's office with the back drop of a snowstorm outside, 

Here's another hanging stained glass window as we're looking out into the library courtyard.

Because of all the freezing temps throughout much of the country lately, you may have seen some crazy home science experiments on the Weather Channel. Here's a little 2-minute video you may enjoy. Click here.
