Superbowl!

So I watched the Superbowl last night,right off the bat you know the Cowboys didn't make it,that would have been my dream.So I was pulling for the Falcons.The Falcons had the first half sewn up.And after the half I was pulling for the Patriots to just make a good game.Don't get me wrong,make the game interesting but not win.

 

But since things turned out the way they did

 congratulations Patriots fans. :) 

 

Patriots 34, Falcons 28

Werewolves!

Pack of Lies (The Twenty-Sided Sorceress) (Volume 3) - Annie Bellet

The Alpha in this territory has died.He kept the peace with all the other packs.Now it's time for a new leader among the packs,and with that inherent trouble.

And Jade Crow (Human Sorceress) is right in the middle.How she even gets involved,well it's in the book.

 

Probably the most fun book in this series so far because it dealt with werewolves. 

NFC and AFC Championships

The Falcons take the Packers in the NFC Championship.

44 FALCONS
21 PACKERS
 
And the Patriots beat the Steelers in the AFC Championship.
 36 PATRIOTS
17 STEELERS 
 
 
On to the Superbowl! 
 
May the Falcons win!
 

DIV Postgame

The Packers beat the Cowboys :(

PACKERS 34 COWBOYS 31

It was a good game,in the 1st quarter it was all Packers,but by the end of the 2nd quarter the Cowboys started coming back.At one point in the 4th quarter they were even tied.Then the Packers made a game winning field goal.

 

My football season is over for the Cowboys :(

Murder of Crows

Murder of Crows (The Twenty-Sided Sorceress Book 2) - Annie Bellet

The book was entertaining,so many shifters, it's like watching an episode of Grim.I like the way the author writes,she keeps it just light enough.

 We start with Jade practicing the use of her magic,because it doesn't hurt to be stronger and she has a crazy ex-boyfriend (who is also a sorcerer) after her.

 Then at some point her dad shows up requesting help.This is where the meat of the story is.We learn more about Jade and her past,it's mostly native american.And then there's the fight with the spirit

 All and said and done it's an entertaining read.:)

Justice Calling

Justice Calling (The Twenty-Sided Sorceress Book 1) - Annie Bellet

I got this book for free,and I really didn't know how I would feel about it.

But it was a pleasant surprise.The MC being a sorceress,wearing her talisman about her neck.And the talisman is a D20.And she is the owner of a game shop/comic shop.

So,this was all a bonus to me:)

 

But the book was better than I expected and I thought it had good character development.It was dealing with shifters as well as the MC.But the story was not bad,it kept entertained throughout.

Happy New Year!

There is bound to be much partying and drinking.My friends bring in the new year safely :)

Game 16

Okay, at one point in the 1st half the Cowboys were behind.But then after I'm sure a bit of yelled encouragement.And a remarkable play between Dak Preston,Dez Bryant and Jason Witten. :)

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Guests are about to come over and I may not have access to the laptop for a few days.

 

Just wishing everyone good cheer! :)

 

This is why I don't want to go on a cruise...

Deck Z: The Titanic: Unsinkable. Undead. - Matt Solomon, Chris Pauls

When I first got the book,I thought the ship will be full of zombies.But I got a pleasant surprise with first reading about a german scientist.Which makes sense because it was 1912 ,pre-WW1.So this guy was trying to wipe out a virus on land and in doing so learns the government he is working for wants a really cool biological weapon.

 So being the good guy he is,he takes his results and boards the Titanic,and that's when the fun starts.

 

I like zombie reads and I thought this was a fun one.

Game 15

Cowboys against the the Buccaneers good game but the Cowboys came out with a win this time.

Graduation!

My son graduated Stephen F. Austin this weekend.He got his BBA in finance,yes I'm proud of my boy. :)

 

Just felt I had to share that.

Game 14

The Cowboys played the Giants last night and it was a hard game.Both teams looked equal to the match.But the Giants came out ahead again.

Game 13

It was the Cowboys vs the Vikings.I watched the game last night and the first thing I want to say is.The Vikings have a really nice stadium,it even has a Viking ship outside!

 Yes,I was impressed just seeing this on T.V. :)

 

But ,the game,it was not a pretty game.At one point I told my wife this is probably good for the Cowboys,they need to know the pain of loss.(and yes I flat out stole that line from Michael Irvin) But if they lose a game before the post-season maybe it will make them play that much harder.

 

Wow,it was not easy for me to say they should be humbled.

I just want a good season.

The Last Kingdom

The Last Kingdom - Bernard Cornwell

Good book and well written.

You have an English boy captured by the Danes and pretty much raised by the Danes.At one point his Dane father is killed by some enemy Danes.This drives him to an English kingdom at which point he decides to be English and someday have revenge for his Danish father's death.

 

The battle scenes alone are fantastic!

Hope everybody had a happy Thanksgiving.....I know I did!
