Excuse the changes! And it's World Cup time!

Please excuse the accidental decor changes going on around us. I promise, it was quite by accident. Somehow I clicked a new template design and I cannot find my way back home. Maybe I will just try on a new blog outfit each week? What do you think?

Oh, and in the meantime, since the World Cup starts today, I thought I'd give a shout out and good luck to ENGERRRLAAAANNNNDDDD tomorrow! Yes, I know they are playing against USA so my house is divided - a little like growing up when half my family supported Liverpool and the other half supported Everton. In the 80s, they played cup finals against each other a lot, it seemed, but the rivalry was always friendly.
And it's called football. Played with the feet. Not what American's call Football. That would be rugby with padding and helmets on. :-)

In the interests of keeping this book relevant... some interesting sounding books about football/ soccer.....
