BOOKS: My Girlfriend's New Book (And Her Old Book Too)!

My girlfriend, The Sassy Witch, has just published her 2nd book, Too Many Clowns, Not Enough Circuses. A great and wonderful book, so everyone should rush to amazon.com or barnesandnoble.com to buy a copy right now. Com’on, you can take my word for it! You can’t? Fine, I’ll tell you a little more about both books.

The new book, Too Many Clowns, Not Enough Circuses, is about the adventures and misadventures she had while using a phone dating system and about the interesting and different (in more than one way) men she met. She comes across as if she were describing these events to a friend making it a fun read. It also contains handy advice for any women thinking of doing the same. I think single women, and women who have been there, would get quite a kick out of it as well as men who want some insight into what women want.

Her first book, The Secrets in My Home, is a very different book. This book is about a traumatic event which tore apart her marriage and caused her daughter to be separated from her father. Using her entries for her journal, it describes the first six months after the event. It’s raw and intense some times, but not a difficult read. It’s also a short book, but still carries quite a wallop. (Oh, yes, her daughter wanted me to let you know that her poetry is also in the book!)

She has also started her own blog, The Creative Musing of a Sassy Witch! Unfortunately, she went into back surgery right after starting it, so there isn’t too much there right now, but trust me, once she gets going, it will be a blog well worth reading.

Music That I've Enjoyed Recently

My Internet Radio Stations

This is a fairly good sampling of some of the music I listen to. It's missing a few genres I like - such as cajun. I'll work on that later. But it does contain most of my favorite artists. I tried to steer away from the better known songs to give you a better idea of what kind of music the artists play, but I was limited by the songs the website - Project Playlist - had available. But if you want to get an idea of what I listen to, just hit the play or arrow button. - OlderMusicGeek

The internet station that does the best of playing my music is Last.fm. Here's my station if you're interested.

This website, OlderMusicGeek Radio on Pandora.com, does a fairly decent job of playing what I like, although they do occasionally play stuff I don't care for, but overall they're pretty good.
