An Open Letter to Whoopi Goldberg….We most certainly WERE Listening

Thank you Becky. I’m in Health Care too, a Technical Analyst that helps Nurses and Doctors and Instrument Technicians use software to improve patient care. I know first hand just how much compassion, strength and courage each nurse I’ve worked with posses and all the heart they bring to patient care and keeping the patient safe. I also have friends that nurses and they love and hug and accept as no other friend I have. God bless all that choose this profession and stand up when one of their own is disrespected. Thank you. Sincerely, Melissa Blanchard Fairview Health Services in Minneapolis MN.

Rebecca's Ramblings

Since I saw The View’s so-called “apology” clip on social media, I’ve given this post a tremendous amount of thought. My first instinct and knee-jerk reaction was to sit down with my laptop and blast them with full force…unload my anger  and outrage onto the page…err…computer screen…so I could purge it and get all of that negativity out of my system. I’ll admit, I even got about a quarter of the way through that piece, when I stopped to re-read it. It was a scathing, searing diatribe that quite frankly, made me ashamed of myself. It sounded like something that the View Crew would say…it was petty, spiteful, angry and distasteful. That’s not who I am as a person, a writer or more specifically, a nurse. Quite frequently, I end my blog posts with a sentence urging my readers to be kind to each other. I am a tireless advocate for tolerance, peaceful coexistence and doing…

“The Informant” by James Grippando and Narrated by George Guidall

A story written to help you understand the criminal mind and the women in authority that search them down relentlessly.

A story written to help you understand the criminal mind and the women in authority that search them down relentlessly.

I just finished the Audiobook “The Informant” by James Grippando & narrated by George Guidall
Wow this story was an indepth study of a serial killer.

There were many twists & turns so in the end you are surprised by why Mike was selected as the reporter getting inside information.

Well developed characters & a plot that dug deep but kept the story moving. Very well done.

George Guidall’s voice is easy to listen to.  He gives voice to the characters.  I recognize them from the vocal tones alone.  The narration reminds me very much of a one man play.

I recommend this book to all that don’t mind finding out about the criminal mind & enjoy understanding the woman in authority that go after them relentlessly.

Enjoy.

I got my Digital copy from Hennepin County library on OneClickDigital but I wouldn’t mind owning & revisiting these characters from time to time.

Anne Flosnik Thank you so much for your generous words Melissa! This is part of a delightful traditional mystery series set in Wales. Each book stands alone or builds on the others. The focus of each changes, with the spotlight being on a slate mine in this one. They are beautifully wriiten by Elizabeth J. Duncan, and completely absorbing.

Note from Melissa Blanchard:

I’m sharing this post from my Facebook account from an Anne Flosnik share. Anne Flosnik is an excellent narrator providing voices for all the characters. I enjoy her narrations and will be picking up this audiobook to add to me reading list.  I’ll let you know how I like it blog followers but for now this is an Audio Book Reviews link above shared by Anne and then by me on Facebook.  Enjoy.
