Weekend Links 1-15-21

 Happy long holiday weekend. We're bracing for a winter storm this weekend. However, there's part of me that's a little skeptical of dire predictions of bad weather. The last storm we were supposed to have turned out to be nothing of consequence. We'll see what happens. In the meantime, here are a few links of interest for your weekend reading. 

All Creatures Great and Small has just started airing season two in the U. S. and it is the perfect balm for these difficult times. If you are interested in James Herriott's original books, here is the order in which you should read them.

H. A. Rey is best known for his Curious George books, but he also had a keen interest in astronomy. The illustrations featured in this article are wonderful. 

This is a good reminder what an excellent series Foyle's War was to watch. Here is what one writer learned from rewatching the series.

I am really looking forward to this: the trailer for the BritBox series Magpie Murders is out and it looks fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed the book so I am pumped to watch this when it comes out next month. 

The annual elections to the Baseball Hall of Fame are due to be announced in a couple of weeks. One fan's attempt to track the voting has forever altered the election process. Personally, I like seeing how the votes are tracking before the announcement is made. 

I agree with this: you should listen to CDs in their entirety.

Why The Princess Bride is such a great movie.

For some reason I think that "office supplies" means something different in Manchester.
