Revival
Stephen King may no longer be able to scare readers like he

I've been listening to the album for a couple of days now, and I really like it.  I was happy to see that it was not just another release of a bunch of my favorite songs using the same old arrangements that I have grown used to hearing.  I particularly like how some rather obscure songs were chosen (most of which are new to me), and that two of the brother acts are entirely new to my experience, too.  The Gibson Brothers have become one of those groups that I buy first...and listen to later.  In other words, I take it on faith that their recordings will be something I listen to over and over again.  Nice review, Ted.

Book Trailer of the Week: Life from Scratch
It's been a while since I've shared a book trailer here, so here's a new one that I find hard to resist - and this is from someone not at all into cookbooks or anything resembling a cookbook. Now this book appears to be a combination memoir/cookbook, and I'...

The Missing Place
Until the recent drop in oil prices, the most exciting thing
going on in the oil exploration business was the huge increase in production
from places where, just a few years earlier, it had been too expensive even to
drill.   But almost overnight, because o...
