I'm way behind and haven't really written anything (non-technical) in a year, but I did make some updates about favorite books on my Squidoo lenses What's a Little Murder Among Friends
, crime fiction
, and Nearly Nothing but Novels
. These are, to some extent, spin-offs from my main fiction blog, also called Nearly Nothing but Novels
For photos from a recent, excellent trip to Bad Nauheim, see my Flickr sets here
. Bad Nauheim is a small Art Nouveau town with natural mineral water baths in Germany. This is where Elvis lived, and where my son just competed in a classical guitar competition (the International Guitar Orchestra Festival, or GOFI). FDR went to school there as a child and ordered that the town be spared from bombing during World War Two. The people in Bad Nauheim were wonderful, and so was the food.
