It is Wednesday, and that means one thing ( or many )….Surviving “Paradise” day! It is that day when I promote my book/story Surviving “Paradise” by Susan Willoch Shaver. Follow a southern woman who relocates to a new town (in southwest Florida) full of great expectations – only to be met by a ridiculous set of people and circumstances. Ridiculous is being kind! Funny satire, witty humor, crazy neighborhood mayhem, it has it all! Please check it out at Amazon.com for $8.99 in paperback and $3.03 in kindle edition. For more info, check out the HOME page at this website and the BUY THE BOOK option on the menu bar (takes you directly to Amazon.com!)
Meanwhile, China Open in Beijing is going on. Djokovic, Nadal (in his return after three month absence due to a right wrist injury) continue to impress. Murray looks better. Serena and Venus are still in it as is Sharapova and Kvitova but E. Bouchard and A. Radwanska were dismissed in the first round in two sets. I await the return to action of Mr. Federer, next scheduled to compete in Shanghai!!
Some really good College Football is in store for us, beginning on Thursday night..Arizona at 2 Oregon. Unfortunately, it will be a late start here on the east coast, 10.30 pm. Oh well, GO DUCKS! Saturday games feature Georgia Tech hosting Miami in a very important ACC Coastal Division matchup, 7:30 pm EST on ESPN2. Was planning to go but it did not work out so will be watching it at home along with the other great games on. GO JACKETS!
We will enjoy 6 Texas A&M vs. 12 Miss State, Wake vs. 1 FSU (yawn), 7 Baylor at Texas, 4 Oklahoma vs. 25 TCU, 14 Stanford vs. 8 Notre Dame (should be very interesting!), 3 Alabama vs. 11 Ole Miss (another GOOD one!), Arizona State at 16 USC, 19 Nebraska vs. 10 Michigan State, and again late night game (10:30 pm EST) Utah at 8 UCLA in another important Pac 12 game.
So, no reason to complain about this weekend’s action.
Tonight, Nashville will air its second show of the new season at 10:00 pm EST on ABC. As expected, Rayna chose Luke’s proposal over Deacon’s. The drama is hardly over…Juliette is pregnant, Teddy is acting nicer (?) and Will has come “out of the closet” along with so much more. (I am still upset with ABC for cancelling my favorite guilty pleasure show, Betrayal which aired at 10:00 pm EST on Sundays!!)
Also, The Mysteries of Laura airs tonight at 8:00 pm EST on NBC. Critics have slammed this new show but I really like it. Debra Messing is perfect for this character.
OK, been a bit slow this week (my b’day week, I deserve it, right?) but am getting psyched to see Gone Girl on Friday at the theater not near me! Going to be so good!!
