Illya surrenders

Today in History

In 1995, Andre Dallaire’s attempt to assassinate Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien is foiled when the minister’s wife locks the door.

For some reason, this amuses me. I doubt a locked door would have stopped anyone here. Canadians, though, they are a glorious people in a glorious country.

Have you ever been to Canada?

Mrs. Waverly's Afternoon Tea and Book club

I am assuming that everyone has finished the magazine story by now. It was truly amazing how cookie cutter these stories became towards the end. There was an outline for the various writers to follow and made mention of what they had to include in each story, like, say the garrote in Illya's wedding ring.

Is there anyone who would like to take over the book club for the next couple of months? Things are already starting to stack up due to work and the holidays and I discover that it's getting harder and harder to read (I tend to fall asleep the minute I open a book right now). If so, would you please contact me by PM?

If there isn't anything, I would like to request a hiatus until the first of the year.

Thoughts, suggestions, helpful advice?
