Kentucky Fried Chicken introduces its Chicken Corsage just in time for prom, and they’re going like hotcakes . . . or at least like chicken and waffles.

Let’s help English teacher Katie Sluiter build a library for her high schoolers! This is her current classroom library . . .
She’d probably like to turn it into this . . .
But I’m guessing she would be happy with a couple thousand books — either new or gently used — so that the kids never have an excuse to not be reading. Get the details on how you can help at Building a Dream.
Big thanks to Amber West, author of The Ruth Valley Missing, for calling my attention to this book drive. In my experience, avid reading is a substantial factor to success in any field.
Outstanding review of FIRELANDS. KokkieH Reviews Firelands: A Post-Apocalyptic Tale by Piper Bayard. I love it when people see all of the layers.
Being a Browncoat, I love this piece that bestselling author Tammy Salyer pointed my way. If Twitter were on Firefly. If you love Firefly, Joss Whedon, and/or social media, you’ll get a kick out of this.

In celebration of The Bard’s birthday this week, 20 Great Shakespearean Insults. Big thanks to Jenny Hansen of More Cowbell for bringing this to my attention. I’m saving these up for the 2016 election season, which starts . . . let me check . . . in 2012.
On a more serious note, 200 girls are missing in Nigeria. Two hundred. They were kidnapped from their school by an Al-Qaeda affiliate. This deserves some attention. 200 Girls are Missing in Nigeria – So Why Doesn’t Anybody Care? by Anne Perkins.
The Tipping Info-Graphic for my fellow life travelers. I don’t know about you, but I’m not always sure how much to tip and where.
Prom time is here, as the chicken commercials indicate. Some great advice for you young couples, and a laugh for the rest of us.
Campaign Style Poll of the Week . . .
All the best to all of you for a tasty week.
Had a great laugh at those Shakespearian insults. I’ll have to memorise a few of those for later use…
They’re good ones, aren’t they? So glad I could give you a smile today. Thanks, again, for the lovely review. 🙂
It was my pleasure. Looking forward to the next novel.
Thank you. It will be a Bayard & Holmes spy thriller. 🙂
Holy wow! People are taking their own snacks to prom. Since I can’t have the chicken (gluten), perhaps In N Out could do something comparable with a nice lettuce-wrapped burger…
LOL. Perhaps a nice salad bouquet with it as part of the greenery in the corsage? 🙂
Congrats on another excellent review of Firelands! Like Herman, I’m going to have to memorise some of those Shakespearean insults. Possibly they could be used when someone arrives wearing a KFC corsage. I don’t know if you had them in the US, but for a while here in NZ the chain produced a ‘Double Down Burger’, which consisted of two fillings and no bun, and set various health watchdogs in a spin. My arteries clog just thinking about it, but it might make a dandy fashion accessory…
We did have that here! I’m not sure, but it might still be available if you’d like to come try one. You might not live to see your homeland again, but what a way to go! 🙂
I saw online that you could also make a bacon corsage! Now, that sounds yummy!
A bacon corsage! Honestly, I would love it if my hubby got me something like that. An exceptional use for bacon roses. 🙂
Oh Lord I’m the only one who’s voted for a 12piece bucket.. what does that say about me?!
LOL. It says you’re a practical woman. 🙂
nothing like a handy snack….
