The title really says it all. A spiritual hobo—who would have thought... I had fun reading Hobo Sapien and learned a few things along the way, as well."  "Raindrops on Roman by Elizabeth Scott: Growing up in the '60's,...

Wishes in Black & White

Wishes in Black & White, a book by Eileen Williams Sabry; Photography by Roya Movafegh Today Bob handed me this book that he published in 2000 while he was living in California.

MORE OF HISTORY'S WORST: 2000 Years of Idiocy from Nero to Trump

For a really fun read as well as educational... even for people who are not history buffs, this is a fabulous book: MORE OF HISTORY'S WORST. It has two sections on Trump, hence the  subtitle, 2000 Years of Idiocy from Nero to Trump. I loved working on this book, designing the cover, formatting the interior... the works.

Love this 89-year-old priest

Our author, Father Harry J. Bury, has to be one of the most delightful wonderful men I have ever met in person, and now this interview: http://harryjbury.com/harry-j-bury-video-discussion-with-nancy-nelson/ A priest starts out the video with these words: "It was the cleanest jail I was ever in, in Alexandria, VA." Yes, this priest has been in jail more than once, had a hood placed over his head and led to a jail, and so many other stories that are just not typical stories you hear from a catholic priest. I feel so honored to have a personal relationship with this man. I wrote...
