I've been in Texas this whole week, visiting my Father and playing golf. Now enjoying some McLelland Beacon in the Cayuga Oiled Briar.

Drinking 43 year old Crown Royal neat.

Splendid!

Just re-read this for a second time-

What Are You Reading? - Page 2 51o1c9A3vUL._AC_US218_

A very comprehensive account of the Islay distilleries, complete with many detailed chapters of the nature and accounts of the Illeachs (native residents) who reside there.

The author Andrew Jefford is well spoken and has obviously done his homework. I say this due to having visited Islay in '01 for the Whisky Festival over the course of a full week, where I was fortunate to tour all of the distilleries on a very personal basis.

Jefford's accounts are spot on, and his narrative is engaging and informative. In short, if one is an Islay aficionado this is a must read.

Highly recommended!


Cheers,

RR

A Coffin for Dimitrios (The Mask of Dimitrios, in Britain), only because it's recommended...by everyone, apparently. Classic and first(?) of the great spy thrillers. Treachery, deceit, betrayal, intrique, murder, all those good things as seen through the eyes of a professor turned mystery novelist. Dimitrios is a bad, bad guy. Never read it, though I've read most classics.

Reading Daniel Silva's most recent entry into the Gabriel Allon series, House of Spies. I've really enjoyed this series, and this genre in general.

Finally got a round tuit on this classic.

Very chilling and comprehensive account of the Clutter murders. Made one seem like they were there at the events.

Shocked


Cheers?

My grandfather was Clutter's business partner. The FBI walked my mom to school for two weeks; they had no idea what the motive was and so took all of the necessary precautions.

"The Life and Times of Little Richard: The Quasar of Rock."

Just finished this amazing account.

For anyone who is interested in the history of R&R this is a must read. Little Richard shaped and defined the style that many copied and cashed in on from the 50's onward. A true original.

I caught his act once, back in the early 70's. The venue was Summerfest in Milwaukee, WI on the lakefront (still is). His stage was perhaps 6' off the ground. Kind of a cheesy setup, not at all like the major outdoor concerts of this day and age.

Little Richard came out in a green sequinned suit with a waist jacket. No shirt on underneath. Very reflective in the stage lights. And he was electric in his delivery, both in music and stage patter.

At one point, he bade the audience to "come up on the stage and touch me, since I love for my fans to reach out and touch me".

And then, he reached out his arms "Christ-style (on the Cross)", and a multitude of the audience got up on the stage (being 6' this was no small achievement), and proceeded to engulf him. At which point the myriad bouncers and security threw them off the stage in less than a humane manner! And they kept coming!!!

In any case, Little Richard provoked an animal response from the audience. Which was, of course, his intention. And now, this many years later, and reading this autobiography, I finally understand why.

Back then, I was a neophyte more or less. And as such didn't fully grasp the influence of the pioneers such as Little Richard. This book provides an unique insight into into the true "King of R&R".

Feel free to disagree with me.

Cheers,

RR

Finished Agatha Christie's "The Mysterious Affair at Styles," as well as Alan Moore's 12 part Graphic Novel "Providence." Just picked Frank Herbert's "Dune" back up, less than 1/2 way through. I have also been reading the complete HP Lovecraft beginning with "The Alchemist" & "At The Mountains of Madness." My current non fiction read is Michael Wallis's "The Best Land Under Heaven." Lots to read, Phew....

Just re-read this after too many years. And it was just as gripping as the first time around!

While still reading through Van Gogh. The Life, I started The Drawing of The Three, the 2nd volume of the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. I also am reading On Writing. A Memoir of the Craft also by King.

Thoroughly enjoyed Salt A World History by Mark Kurlansky. A rivetting read about salt and it's many uses.

Also just started re reading Tobacco by Iain Gately which was gifted to me in the cross Pacific bombing a while back. Great history of our favourite leaf and its consumption which I reccomend to all tobacco lovers out there.

Cheers

Finally re-read this classic after some 40 yrs or so-

What Are You Reading? - Page 2 51LitoUcEaL._AC_US218_

Just as bizarre and oddly interesting as the first time. Seems like a stream of consciousness more than a factual account.  Hard to follow at times, but whatever it is, it works!



Cheers,

RR
