Where I Am
I’m back in the great frozen north after a week in Florida. I did get to Universal Studios and the Wizarding World of Harry Potter but I’m saving those pictures for the next edition of the Harry Potter reread.
Here’s one picture though from the Toon Landing section of the park.
Coming Up This Week
Hopefully, there will be a new theme. I installed one and it is all working except for one itsy bitsy problem. It is going to a blank static homepage instead of my blog even though I’ve told it repeatedly not to do that. Of course the place I got the theme from doesn’t have any customer service on weekends. I hate it when technical stuff doesn’t work right out of the box.
I got so many blog posts written and books read when I was in Florida! Lots of stuff coming up. I’m way ahead. Let’s see how long that lasts.
What I’m Reading
Cold Magic by Kate Elliott
As they approach adulthood, Cat Barahal and her cousin Bee think they understand the society they live in and their place within it. At a select academy they study new airship technologies and the dawning Industrial Revolution, but magical forces still rule. And the cousins are about to discover the full ruthlessness of this rule.

Presenting a corrective to the popular notion of Rosa Parks as the quiet seamstress who, with a single act, birthed the modern civil rights movement, Theoharis provides a revealing window into Parks’s politics and years of activism. She shows readers how this civil rights movement radical sought—for more than a half a century—to expose and eradicate the American racial-caste system in jobs, schools, public services, and criminal justice.
