Pickle Me This

April 10, 2006

More for your pleasure…

Hear Beverly Cleary on NPR! (I was referred by Maud Newton.) I am also obsessed with the website for The Tea Guild in the UK. Today I pulled rank and got my mitts on “Mean Boy” by Lynn Coady before it even got on the shelf. Of course it now joins by ToBeRead pile. Watch this space. Intriguing question of the day: has Bloomsbury misjudged Gary Barlow’s currency? In fun trivia news, courtesy of “Six Words…” by Katherine Barber, the origin of the world “rhubarb”- something like “rhu” was an old name for the Volga, and “barb” as in “barbarian”, for this fine fruit (it is a fruit?) began in the land where dragons be!
