Leftcoastzen @AmyG I‘ve always wanted to check out the campus. 9mo
AmyG @Leftcoastzen It‘s a beautiful campus. Ann Arbor is wonderful. In the summer is quieter and they have an art fair that‘s great along with an awesome farmer‘s market. 9mo
TheKidUpstairs I hadn't heard this! The Big Chill is one of my favourites 😢😢😢 9mo
JamieArc @AmyG and @Leftcoastzen and don‘t forget the bookstore Literati is there! One of my favorite bookstores. 9mo
AmyG @JamieArc It‘s also one of my most favorite bookstores, too. 9mo

Fans of Agatha Christie and her ilk might enjoy this mystery with theatre and fairy tale themes, set in 1950s England. Read my full review here: https://debbybrauer.org/#smoke-and-mirrors-the-brighton-myste...

Nice pic, took in Barcelona in the openair book market in the Ronda de Sant Antoni, in 1915.
It happens every Sunday till nowadays, but a little more organised!

(A quote from the tagged book traduced for Catalan)
“Com et podies proposar escriure un conte de Nadal que no fos sentimental‽ Era una contradicció en els termes, una impossibilitat, un dilema absolut. Era com imaginar-se un cavall de curses sense potes o un pardal sense ales.“

Books really do change lives! A friend gave my husband the tagged book for his birthday a few years back.... he loved the book. So of course he then has been on a 3 year mission that has included travelling nearly 5,000 miles to eat at the restaurant, buying a back yard smoker, having a brisket 1:1 14hr lesson in Texas and today - staying up all night to smoke a brisket at home for dinner today! All because a friend bought him a book !

JaclynW Wow! Awesome story! 2y
Mrs_B And it looks soooo good! 2y
squirrelbrain Staying up all night?! Wow, that *is* commitment! 2y

Mitch @squirrelbrain He fired up the smoker at 11pm last night - brisket went on about 1am...... and we ate at 4pm this afternoon! Bless him, he sat all night tending the fire! Early bight tonight! 2y
Mitch @JaclynW And it all started with a book! 2y
Mitch @Mrs_B It was amazing - texture like soft butter - wonderful with pickled watermelon! 2y
Soubhiville Yay! Pickled watermelon sounds interesting. Does it keep some of the watermelon flavor? What about texture? 2y
Mitch @Soubhiville Its really delicious - my new favourite pickle.... it's a bit like a light apple texture - it keeps its form ( I thought it would go mushy) and its got a slight fruity taste - there is star anise, lemongrass and ginger in the pickling liquid too. 2y
Soubhiville Ooo, that sounds really good! 2y
MicheleinPhilly Holy moly. I‘m coming to your house as soon as this travel ban lifts. 🤤 2y

#bfc Goals are on hold for a week whilst we eat our way around Austin / Dallas! This was breakfast ( this BBQ place, no 1 in Texas, only opens on Saturday 8am until sold out! We arrived to join the queue at 6:45!) But we did go for a nice walk around a few small towns - wandering and browsing - perfect Saturday! #bfc

Lucy_Anywhere Holy moly, that looks delicious! 3y

Mr K was given this book about 3 years ago - it‘s literally changed his life! As a result of this book he bought a backyard smoker, has spent many summer weekends smoking brisket, ribs, turkey and pork shoulder and today his dream came true - after a 4.5 hr wait in line he got to eat at the restaurant of the man himself.

MicheleinPhilly YUM! Congrats Mr. K! 4.5 hours is a serious commitment to BBQ. Hats off. 3y
LeahBergen Oh, man! That looks amazing!! 3y
