I loved Enid Blyton's books as a kid as well, Sam.

At my personal blog, I share my thoughts about the fantasy series The Witcher and the first episode of Star Trek: Picard.

And at my Retro Science Fiction Reviews site, I review the 1944 short story "The Lake" by Ray Bradbury.

My brain is still in January even though we've been preparing for the last day of the Christmas season, which is Feb 2nd. Links to music, pictures of my bad kitties, and the incredible desire to work on shiny new ideas: https://vijayabodach.blogspot.com/2020/02/feast-of-presentation-of-jesus.html

Cora, yes, Feb. 2nd is known by several names, including Candlemas. It's when we bless all the candles used for devotional and liturgical use.

Today's post on awards. Your thoughts? https://vijayabodach.blogspot.com/2020/02/on-disappointments-and-surprises.html

The computer models predicting deaths from Covid-19 are all over the place.  They leave a lot to be desired...

So I made my own model

Jeff, good try. I think the re-iterative approach is the best. As I tell my kids, you have to check the assumptions even with that approach because it can make the difference between 20,000 deaths vs 1 million.

We don't live in normal times, but I'm trying to get back as far as possible to normality with my blog. So here, delayed by around eight weeks or so from when I'd intended to post it in pre-lockdown, is the post about a trip to Dublin I took in February with some old friends. http://samkates.co.uk/2020/05/01/in-dublins-fair-city/

Sam, what a great trip.

I teamed up with an amazing artist and entered a writing contest for children about this pandemic! So fun to work with people who are brilliant.

Today is a very special day. I post some amazing art for your contemplation: https://vijayabodach.blogspot.com/2020/05/three-hearts.html

Glad you had a nice time with your friends, Sam, and glad you made it back safely.

Hard to believe, though, that there's not a single bridge between Britain and Ireland.  That convoluted flight should have been a four-hour drive.   :confused:

It's cool you got to see Bram Stoker's house.   :cool:

The only other cheap option is the ferry, but it can be a little rough crossing the Irish Sea in good weather - Storm Ciara ensured all ferry crossings home were cancelled, together with quite a few flights, so we were lucky to get home when we did. A bridge, though, would be darned handy...

I'm a short story and magazine writer. Well, I finally collected a bunch of EZ stories and compiled them into a little book. Best of all, my daughter made the line art for it. So, so fun to work together. I'd also entered a writing contest about the pandemic and although we didn't win, we are happy with the book, so released it ourselves (sans Amazon). I wrote about both these short books here: https://vijayabodach.blogspot.com/2020/05/my-short-books-for-kids.html

Soon, I'll add the pictures to my signature. But the glamorous life of a writer includes taking dog out for a walk, cleaning the cat box, hanging out the laundry. So later...
