A sunny weapon by Jacqueline Winspear. In the 17th title of Winspear’s Maisie Dobbs series, Maisie has just married American Mark Scott, and they have officially adopted young Anna into a blended family. The first bit of mystery comes from Officer Jo Hardy, a female pilot who flies various planes in the war effort. She has a friend who crashed and died in an apparent accident while carrying a Spitfire. Jo is convinced that a mysterious male figure shot her during a previous robbery in the same area. As Maisie investigates, she flounders in troubled waters when an American serviceman is found bound and gagged and another person goes missing from the same location as the accident. Things get even more confusing because Mark is working on security for Eleanor Roosevelt’s visit to the UK, and the information Maisie reveals poses a problem for the first lady’s safety. On the home front, Maisie must decide how to handle the mistreatment of her adopted daughter at school. Is it just schoolyard bullies or bad leadership?
French braid by Anne Tyler. Author of the Pulitzer Prize-winning “Breathing Lessons” and recent Man Booker Prize-winning “Redhead by the Side of the Road,” Tyler has always had a way with families. Its protagonists here are the Garretts, who don’t necessarily seem so close. Mercy is more invested in creating artwork than caring for her husband Robin or their three children – the dependable Alice, the wild-eyed Lily and the youngest, David, who seems more than a little eager to fight their way away from the farm. In fact, the Garretts only took one vacation together, in 1959. Yet they clearly influenced each other over the decades profiled here.
Illogical: say yes to a limitless life by Emmanuel Acho. Acho, a former NFL linebacker, Emmy-winning broadcaster, and best-selling author, provides a step-by-step guide for readers on how to stop letting societal metrics or supposedly logical expectations determine their value, success, or loss. greatness. Instead, he suggests that one should create a new path by rejecting conventional logic about life choices and thinking illogically. Illogical thinking helped him start a career in broadcasting and become a top communication expert for several football managers. He later became an activist and creator of the online video series, “Uncomfortable Conversations with a Black Man,” which he turned into a book. Throughout this call for personal growth, Acho provides inspirational quotes and stories about himself and others who use mental and, at times, physical strength to achieve their goals. Acho encourages readers to study people who work, look and sound different from themselves, discover new ideas, learn new skills, step out of their comfort zone and be brave to break free old patterns that hold us back.

Just 10 minutes of exercise helps you live longer. More than 110,000 lives could be saved by adults over 40 if they added just 10 minutes of moderate to vigorous activity to their daily routine. Even more lives would be saved if they increased this activity by 20 or 30 minutes a day.

What do you call the ghost of a chicken?
Stingy Schobel says
A small party at your house can leave you with undrunk soft drinks in cans and glasses at the end of the festivities.
But don’t flush that leftover soda down the drain – it can be used to shine your pots and pans. Simply pour the remaining club soda into your dirty cookware and simmer over very low heat for 30-45 minutes.
Dark sodas like Coke and Pepsi are very acidic and work wonders for eating away stubborn messes.
