In the Land of Dead Horses Book Review from @kleffnotes

I will admittedly admit I am a bit behind. I received some review books either in the main or digitally and they came during periods of extreme scheduling. I know that isn’t really an excuse, but I genuinely have been so busy with work and just getting things done around that house that it becomes difficult to get content out. I am finally at a point where I can start getting through that pile. In the Land of Dead Horses came out in September, but it is something that could fit perfectly before Halloween.

I’m Baaaack! And I Have Recs! from @kleffnotes

If you haven’t noticed I’ve been a bit absent from posting this month and that has been for very good reasons. The first of which is that my day job has been very busy recently and that has to be my priority no matter how much I might want to write an article. I have a responsibility to the folks where I work and I strive to do a great job for them. I love this site, but it is fun thing for me that I can do on the side and that side time has been very limited. The other reason I was not here and posting is I was actually away. Krista and I went to Ohio with both of our dogs to see the Ohio folks for a few days and we had a wonderful time. This trip meant spending time just with them and also prepping to leave so there was no free time at all for a couple weeks.

Beyond your standard moving problems, there is the added drama of murder.
