      Sorry --- after what you just wrote I think Bri's original comment is spot on...

        "OK, Brian, we have you in custody. We're going to interrogate you until you confess. But we'll give you a choice: you can read Danielle Steele until you fold, or you can listen to Justin Bieber. Your call."

            Today I listened to Elvis singing "Jailhouse Rock" and "Hound-dog". Yesterday I listened to the Bee-Gees. Last week I listened to the Everly Brothers. That kinds shines a light on the music I listen to. I shut the office door so the noise doesn't go upstairs and interrupt my wife who is deeply wrapped into T.V. coverage of the crazy American political scene. I open my office/machine shop door, turn up the speakers until the fillings in my teeth vibrate and shake my a$$ while I'm machining. It's an old a$$, so I don't shake it too hard.

I had the boat stored outside, leaning up against a fence-post. That spring my dad had a grass fire get away from him and completely burned up my ice boat. I never got to use it.---I remembered something else. We were very rural, and the telephone lines were supported by poles. In -30f weather, the telephone lines would hum really loudly. I walked about a mile to public school, and I can remember how loudly the wires hummed.
                  Brian I checked out the record low temps in Antarctic -89c or 127 below F. at Vostok Russian Research Station.

                    How about some Anne Rice novels? I can recommend "Queen of the Damned" its your basic vampire novel with the added twist that it is written from the vampire's view. Further plot twist: it involves a crime puzzle several thousand years old... Also, it has some amazing poetry in it.

                      I started reading the Terry Pratchett Disc World series. It was my third attempt; the premise is so silly I failed to get traction the first go arounds. However after a half a book, I was hooked...really well written and entertaining. Kind of what you'd get if Douglas Adams wrote the Lord of the Rings books. Lots of literally laughing out loud...and there are 40 something books so it'll outlast Covid

                            I was sorry to learn of Danielle Steele's plight. She only has one mansion. This is terrible, I may have to send her a couple of dollars, poor dear.

                                Once you have read Salems Lot by Stephen King, you will never have to read another vampire book----ever.
