Delightful summary of what we know for sure about Shakespeare. Bryson is always great to listen to.

Yes, I know I‘m probably the last human on the planet to read this 😬... ANYWAY, I was reading during my lunch break and literally laughed out loud at the mental image inspired by this passage. 😄

lynneamch Maybe I'm the last. Guess I'd better stack it. 13h

Amiable @lynneamch @BarbaraTheBibliophage @Ruthiella Yay! I‘m so glad I‘m not alone! I‘m often hesitant to post about books that everyone else seems to have read years ago. I‘m always behind the curve and trying to catch up. 😀 2h

John Muir, in a letter to his wife during his first visit to Rainier:
"Did not mean to climb it, but got excited, and soon was on top. "
The picture is Rainier seen from halfway up Tolmie Lookout. John was clearly much more fit than I!

#letstravelaugust This is one of my favorite books—in it, the ten Boom family gives #shelter to those needing to hide from the Nazi regime!

OriginalCyn620 Excellent interpretation of the prompt. 💔🏠 15h

Thanks for the tag @Chrissyreadit ! My ideal day would be my cat sitting next to me whilst I read some books and eating dark chocolate, but pausing to watch The Chase!

These guys personified “cool” when I was growing up. A class act, the sounds of my teen years.

Told in narrative poetry with a picture on every page, this story of Mary Shelley an outcast who ran away pregnant at 16 with a married man & poet Percy Shelley. Overcoming every obstacle, the two remain together and end up associated with Lord Byron who dares anyone to write about bringing the dead back to life. Over years Shelley does this by writing Frankenstein & all of the injustices she endured end up in her character.

Busily working on my last piece of homework this afternoon when...this happened. Got the girls 👧🏼👶🏼 out of the house, leashed up the dog 🐕, and crossed the street all while on the phone to 911 and then waited for the fire trucks. The 🔥 put itself out before the firemen arrived. Guess how many services arrived for my little call? 🚒🚒🚒🚒🚒🚓🚓🚑🚗

mrsmarch (That‘s 5 fire trucks, 2 police, an ambulance, and the fire inspector.) 2d

JanuarieTimewalker13 So happy you‘re safe! What happened? (edited) 2d
mrsmarch @JanuarieTimewalker13 Looks like the outlet overheated because of our AC...not a surprise in an old cottage house like ours. Emotions running high right now. 😭 2d
Tamra Yikes and safety comes first so I‘m glad you left & called! 2d
mrsmarch @Tamra I‘m struggling with feeling like an idiot for calling. A woman with two small kids and a dog feels stupid when 5 trucks respond for what amounted to a non-fire...but how was I supposed to know?! 2d
britt_brooke Scary! Happy all is ok! 2d
Librarybelle Glad everyone is safe and okay! 2d
Tamra @mrsmarch you did right! It could have resulted in an undetected wall fire until a lot of damage was done! Don‘t second guess your mom instincts. 🙂 2d
Megabooks Yikes! Glad all of you are okay! 2d
mrsmarch @Tamra They had mentioned taking a section of wall plaster out...and maybe I should consider staying elsewhere tonight...but I‘m tired, yo. And emotional. And the toddler is now in meltdown mode, so today caught up with her. 2d
JoyBlue @mrsmarch Yikes! Take good care. No wonder that you and toddler are emotional. 💙 2d
sprainedbrain Oh no! Glad everyone is ok! 2d
