The first post is by Jill Weatherholt and features author John W. Howell, in the fascinating Would You Rather…some great options which of course John Howell answers with his usual aplomb…
Today I’m excited to welcome friend, writer and blogger, John Howell. I would venture to guess most of you already know him, but if he’s a new blogger to you, you’re in for a treat. John has a great sense of humor, which is evident in both his posts and comments. He’s a blogger I met early on and one who is diligent about posting every day @ 5:00 a.m. EST. Even when he and his family were forced to evacuate during Hurricane Harvey, and their home was severely damaged, he was still blogging. Because of that, if there’s a morning where I don’t see his post, I begin to worry and start sending emails. Is John okay? Now, if he has a scheduling blip, he’ll email me in advance. Thanks for playing along, John!
Would you rather be able to freeze time or travel in time?

The next post is the Saturday episode of the Delta Pearl should you have missed. Teagan Geneviene has created a captivating world aboard this steam boat and a delightful crew.
The Delta Pearl
Chapter 23 — Bruise
Garnet Redford, the Chief Porter was preparing a task list for his staff. He put a check mark beside something, then aggressively crossed it out and wrote something instead. I had never seen Garnet get the morbs, so I had to wonder what could be bothering him.
“Good morning Chief Porter,” I said in a cheery voice, but he only muttered in return. “Is there anything I could help you with? I realize we have a rather difficult group of passengers this voyage.”
I plopped down in the chair that was next to him. Or at least, I plopped as much as my bustle would allow. I propped my chin on my fist and tried to casually get a look at what he was writing.
He grumbled something that included the words “No, thank you.” Garnet acted as if he didn’t want to make eye contact with me. I found that terribly strange, so of course that made me determined to further the exchange.

Time for today’s recipe and it comes with love and hug from Dolly Aizenman as she makes Roti…in honour of her father. Especially as 9th of February is Dentist Day.. all will be revealed when you head over to read.
I Give You Roti And a Big Hug
Today is the International Dentist Day. I am sure that many of you, Beautiful People, do not count your visits to a dentist among your most pleasant memories. I, on the other hand, vividly remember lines of patients by my father’s door who had preferred to wait (and suffer!) for hours in order to be seen by “the painless doctor.” With this post, I am honoring the kindest and most wonderful dentist in the world, my father, may he rest in peace. He did not have sophisticated technology – it hadn’t existed in those times – or an array of painkillers to numb your mouth (those did exist but were scarcely distributed to local clinics). His gentle, but deft touch, his radiant smile, and soft, caring voice worked better than drugs. Not only little kids and pretty ladies were called “sweethearts” and “darlings;” old drunks and smelly street denizens got the same treatment.
