I know many of you enjoy "Call the Midwife" as much as I do. (A new season is returning to PBS in March, I think, or early April.) Did you know you could tour some of the exterior locations on an official "Midwife" tour?
Part of the tour includes a costume exhibit, too, which would be great fun. (Alas, the interiors are done in a film studio.)
Find out more about the tour HERE.
Headed to London? If you love books, you'll want to check out this link for Bookseller's Row.
Cecil Court is located in London's West End, linking Charing Cross Road and St. Martin's Lane, two streets that also feature a number of West End theatres. But this is books. All books, just about! You'll find anything you're looking for. And, you may recognize locations from films like "84 Charing Cross Road" and "Miss Potter," among others. I know what's going on my next-time list!
And while we're in London, check out "Hidden Gems in London that Most Tourists Never See." These are going on my list, too!
|Gorgeous art and antiquities at Sir John Soane's House!|
I was pleased to see a few favorite spots of mine there, too, like Sir John Soane's house!
Some of you have commented that we share an interest in genealogy. "Are You My Cousin" by Lisa Lisson is a wonderful blog I've found helpful in navigating some of that genealogical journey.
|My grandmother, Minnie. She died before I was born but from what I know, she and I are much alike!|
She includes lots of good tips on finding free information as well as places to try when the trail is running dry.
I would be remiss not to remind you that there's a lot of playing fast and loose with the facts as the presidential season picks up. Both sides mess up and that's why before you go believing anything, find a reliable fact check site.
So far, I've been pretty happy with factcheck.org. It appears to be unbiased on either side. That's the key. If you only go to your favorite "side" you may or may not be getting accurate info. We have a lot at stake in 2020, so I encourage you to "check" it out!
Don't you love it when someone says, "Oh, you really should read a book by some cool author" and you trot to the bookstore and buy a book by that author -- only to later find out it was fifth in a series of many. I'm a stickler for trying to read books like that in order (especially mysteries, but it really works for other books with recurring characters).
|Thanks, Sandra, for sharing this one!|
This site will help you get that order straight!
