If your care giving duties allow you time to read.....................I'm interested in what book you are in the middle of or just finished or have waiting on your bedside table.
I'm reading "Total Control" by David Baldacci
It's a crime/thriller drama. Quite compelling.
If you can't find the time to read, you should try. It helps to escape from it all in a good book.
‘Of course I wasn’t trying to hurt your feelings. I never even thought about your feelings!’
The Cloisters sounds intriguing but alas, it isn't available at my library.
where are you watching the Mexican Sr. Avila
I am totally addicted to international series on Netflix, but, could not find that one.
The Parkinson’s & cancer cluster on the “Leo” cast & crew stood out & could be traced as so many who work on films are Union affiliated. Unions tend to keep production records forever as it can take a while to get your # of hours to be eligible. Epidemiologists could cull production records, do contract tracing and find info as to those with Parkinson’s.
That whole area of Canada has increased cancers & Parkinsons as dioxin was used for years as weed & brush killer as sprayed all over BC.
On the current reading, I mainly watch foreign series with closed captions as my “reading”. Just finished 2 seasons of “Teheran”. Currently doing “Blinded By the Lights” a Polish mafia series and “Sr. Avila” a Mexican series on an average appearing businessman who actually is a hit man.
I'm having a lot of tongue in cheek moments reading about everyone coping with the early days of pandemic lock downs (Ruth juggles zooming with her university students while trying to keep her 11 yr old daughter occupied; queueing up at the shop and overbuying wine and loo roll... and of course her brother sends conspiracy info 🤣). So far the mystery is taking a back seat, but the pandemic stuff is priceless.
It happened in 1977, 4 people developed Parkinson’s in 1990s. They made this connection in 2011 and still nothing conclusive. But it looks more as mere coincidence. Out of 150 people working on set that is 6%, generally 1 in 300 which is .3% if my quick without calculating math is correct.
Thank you Gershun, need to read a little more.
Golden, thanks for mentioning The Great Age Reboot, will order now on Amazon, It sounds very interesting.
And I remember reading that about Michael Fox back when he was first diagnosed.
I'm reading a book called The 9th Girl by Tami Hoag. But I'm halfway through and I keep thinking I've read it before........but not sure so I'm plodding my way through it anyway. Mark this as another age related thing I guess.
I suspect behaviors and environment continue to affect us in our 60s and beyond. The cellular mechanisms are still there so why wouldn't they?
No I don't have alexa, but will have to google. Not too late in my 60's?
590? No 385 at least on my kindle.
"A REESE WITHERSPOON HELLO SUNSHINE BOOK CLUB PICK"
"as twisty, spellbinding, and addictive as Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl or Paula Hawkins’s The Girl on the Train”
I didn't think it was something I'd like. And then I saw the page count 🤣
The tale and the writing led me to track down another of her books so "The Winemakers Wife" is next after I finish "Vanished Days" by Susanna Kearsley. I have found I like her writing as well and have read several of her books. (thank goodness there is a Half Price Books store near me. And will hit up the library for more.)
The Cloisters next...
I still have complaints about the Cloud Library though, it is slow and glitchy and searching for books filtered by publication date or alphabetically by title or author leaves a lot to be desired. And it's really annoying to have only some random books in an ongoing series... what good is that?!
