About Me

Retirement does not suit me and I now substitute teach in our local schools system. I spent twenty years in the military, twenty years in health care as a consultant and have taught in various colleges around the country. Both my wife and I are quite involved with our grandsons. Both of us are avid readers and have been all of our lives. Some … more

Champ's story: Dogs get cancer too
I do wish there were more books of this ilk and this quality available for children. For adults, “cancer” has become one of the most terrifying words in our language. Most adults have some …
Girl, the Gold Watch and Everything
I have to admit right off that I am not a big John D. MacDonald fan. I have nothing against his writing but the particular genre he writes in is just not my cup of tea. The hard-boiled detective stories …

TomTom XL 350TM 4.3-Inch Portable GPS Navigator
This is the first auto GPS I have ever owned; not the first I have used but the first that was my very own to do with as I pleased. I have absolutely nothing to compare it with and am not by any stretch …

Oxo Good Grips Silicone Pastry Brush

Wild Animus: A Novel
I fear I am not one of those people who received this book free. No, I was luckier than that. I actually checked the CD version of this book out from our local library. I say I was lucky in this sense …

Rewritten Lives
For some reason and for the life of me I cannot figure you why, the writing and reading of poetry in this country had been sort of put on hold for quite a number of years. Oh, you could find some in obscure …
The Heyday of Natural History
Let me begin by saying that I was absolutely stunned when I found that this wonderful work was no longer in print. This book was first published in England in or just before 1980 and the edition I am …

Hi Don, so happy to have you on Lunch and fantastic reviews! I'm intrigued by your profile information. It sounds like you and your wife have been able to experience so many places. I love it!:) I thought you might enjoy checking out the Heckled by Parrots community and this review of Parrots of the World (given your love of birds). As a huge golf fan myself,  I think you might also get a chuckle from @CharlesAshbacher review How to Cheat at Golf.  Again, great to have you here and please let me know if you have any questions as you go along!
