Spencer Quinn (and PA) Schedule

“There’s been some agitation for getting the schedule out there a little earlier,” Spence says.

“But it’s not really set up yet,” says Admin.

“Still,” says Spence, “maybe we should give them what we’ve got so far.”

“Suit yourself,” Admin says. “I’m heading out – see if I can turn up some of that Cahors Black.”


Friday, July 30, 10-12 AM – Brewster Books, Brewster MA.

Saturday, August 21, 4:15 PM – BarkWorldExpo, Atlantic Station, Atlanta GA.

Sept. 3-5 – Decatur Book Festival, Decatur GA (exact time to come).

September 17-19 – Salem Book Festival, Salem MA (exact time to come).

    Where is Admin going to look for Cahors Black? If he finds it, please let us know.

    Wow!…Shake, Rattle and Roll!… Someone I know has been doing a lot of griping lately about not knowing when, what and where…snort! … Now she will know something, but these places are all so far away… grunt!… Although, the Salem Book Festival might be interesting….. hmmm.

    Crap!…The Blog Bug is back in full force!…snort!…And Admin has gone off to France to look for wine… double Crap!… Does anyone have Mike Bakers email address??….snort!

    There's a Prince Probus Cahors for $42 a bottle plus shipping on winebuys.com.

    PA is leaving MA!! It is going to be hot in Atlanta, ugh, but I am glad he is getting out and seeing more of the country.

    I hit the blog early to see if Melanie had checked in with us yet. I am getting worried. I'll be back later in the day.

    The Blog Bug got me. It's the same Blog Bug as before.

  8. Chet The Dog
    5:20 am on July 13th, 2010

    From Admin: Is the blog bug back? Please let us know. We're not seeing it, and want to be sure before contacting the relevant expert.

  9. Chet The Dog

    Seeing it now! We're on the case.

  10. B. Stover
    5:36 am on July 13th, 2010

    Thank you Sam. Winebuys.com lists six Cahors, some are Malbec. I would not be willing to pay $42 per bottle. There's one for $17. Pondering….

    Yeah!….Admin is going to kick butt and save the day!…. wooooo!… It should not take that Mike Baker long to fix it this time… snort!…. he should know what is causing the problem because of the last time this happened… grunt!

  14. Melanie
    5:41 am on July 13th, 2010

    Ugg, recovering from 24 hour bug. Nasty, nasty, nasty.

    Will catch up when I can.

  15. B. Stover
    5:48 am on July 13th, 2010

    Melanie is back! Sorry you've been ill.

  16. B. Stover

    Thanks for the info Sam. They list six.

    Seriously?…. You guys would spend $42 bucks on a bottle of wine?… grunt!…Thats alot of chew strips!

  18. Mollypop
    5:56 am on July 13th, 2010

    Oh Goodie – Melanie is back. She's probably so run down from everything that it was easy for a nasty bug to get her.

    Mom is all better today and no hangover either. That means she will take me shopping. When we're here at the ski/golf place, dogs are allowed in the stores.

    I love to shop because I manage to get a lot of food and treats. The shopkeepers have stuff right by the cash registers. I mind my manners and don't counter surf – just use my especially cute face. It works every time.

  19. B. Stover
    6:03 am on July 13th, 2010

    Rio: No I would not spend $42 per bottle. I just ordered one of the Cahors for $18 per bottle. I'll let everyone know how it is.

    Glad you're feeling better Mollypop's mom.

    I would like to acknowledge the passing of two people who will always be associated with Yankee baseball…Announcer "The Voice of God" Bob Sheppard, and "The Boss" George Steinbrenner.

    Well, tomorrow is a big day here in Chevy Chase — it's summer camp quilting extravaganza/fabric dying day. Although my mom's quilting guild doesn't formally meet over the summer, for the second year in a row now they are having a quilters' summer camp day in our back yard, with the program this year being fabric dying. My dad already started setting up tables in the back yard today, for the ladies to work on. My mom and her friend Marina will be the instructors, and by the end of the day there will be a bountiful supply of dyed fabrics galore done by the 19 ladies who have signed up for the day. Lots for me to do too, with meet and greet for all the ladies, and general supervision, although with pots of dye all over the place, I will need to keep my distance. I definitely do not aspire to the golden retriever tie-dye look. Although I will probably need to make the rounds at least during the lunch break; can never tell, I may get lucky then. Wookie

  25. Sam
    8:50 am on July 13th, 2010

    My Dad would buy the $42 Cahors Black and also one of the lower priced ones. Supposedly the $42 flavor is very intense. But first, he will check our local big wine store to see what they might have.

  26. Chet The Dog

    Wookie!… I wonder what color he will be by the end of tomorrow??… snort! …Wookie are you going to watch the All-Star game tonight?… wheeze!… A certain Rockies pitcher is pitching the first two innings…heh!

    Cahors!… Will someone please explain to me what this wine tastes like?… snort!… And why isn’t some of it sold in the US?… grunt!

  28. Staff
    9:10 am on July 13th, 2010

    Oh I am so busy today I don't know which way is up.

    Wookie~ Sounds like a lot of fun! Always is when quilter's get together.

    I am busy planning a TOGA! heh heh. You can check it out at

    It is for people who sew with treadle and handcrank (people powered) sewing machines.

    Power to the People.

    Treadle On


  29. Wookie of Chevy Chas
    9:39 am on July 13th, 2010

    Rio. I will try. I have never seen Ubaldo Jimenez pitch, so it should be quite exciting. I think the National League has a real chance at winning this year, since they have a great pitching line-up going for them (even if my guy Strasburg was left out). Since the National League has lost about 13 straight All Star games, it's about time for them to win one. Hopefully Ubaldo will get them off to a great start. Wookie

  30. Riö - The Evil
    9:43 am on July 13th, 2010

    All-Stars!… Yes, and we really want that Home Town advantage for when the World Series rolls around…heh!heh!… Treadle on!…Woooo!

    Jasper!… Ole buddy did someone get a job yet?…snort!

  33. B. Stover
    10:29 am on July 13th, 2010

    Rio: I will let you know what Cahors tastes like when I receive the bottle that I ordered today. I don't know why more of it isn't sold in the U.S. On winebuys.com they listed only six different Cahors and not all were the Malbec grape. They had many many Malbecs from Argentina.

    Sam: After your dad does his research on Cahors, could you please report the results.

    A baseball question: There is a National league and an American league, right??? Which are the Tigers in? (This is a real question.)

  34. Sam
    10:36 am on July 13th, 2010

    Jasper, that was funny! Laff laff.

  35. Siberian Husky
    10:36 am on July 13th, 2010

    The Tigers are in the American League. Whenever you want to know if a team is in the American or National League and what their standing is in the league, just google MLB Standings.

  36. B. Stover
    10:37 am on July 13th, 2010

    Thanks SH.

  37. Sam
    10:38 am on July 13th, 2010

    B., first Dad has to try to get Cahors locally, then he will order. Then and then and then – oh I don't know. I, too, prefer immediate gratification.

  38. Siberian Husky
    10:39 am on July 13th, 2010

    Take your time to recover, Melanie. We are sorry about the 24 hour bug. A person can't function at all with that virus, but we are glad you checked in with us.

  39. Riö - The Evil
    11:03 am on July 13th, 2010

    HuH?…. What’s this? Stover is taking “a real” interest in baseball!… snort!… Can this be true?

  40. B. Stover
    11:20 am on July 13th, 2010

    It doesn't mean I'm going to watch the All Stars Game…..Warehouse 13 and White Collar are on at the same time.

  41. Riö - The Evil
    11:34 am on July 13th, 2010

    Stover!… Not even the first 2 innings to see the best pitcher in all of baseball right now??… snort!…Not even that much?…. sniff!sniff!

  42. Riö - The Evil
    11:39 am on July 13th, 2010

    Heh!… Admin and Spencer have already seen him pitch!…heh!heh!…That was some fun!…snort!

    Melanie: Good grief! I'm so sorry you've caught that nasty bug.

  44. B. Stover
    12:16 pm on July 13th, 2010

    The All Star game starts at 8PM. I suppose I could watch for a bit. Who is the pitcher I'm supposed to look for Rio?

  45. Riö - The Evil
    12:29 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Wooo! …..Stover is going to watch some baseball!…. snort!… You will want to watch for a tall guy by the name of Ubaldo Jimenez…. Grunt!… He is going to be pitching in the first 2 innings, so be sure to turn it on right at 8:00 tonight…heh!

  46. B. Stover
    12:32 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Okay…but you know that this does not mean I'll become a fan.

  47. Mollypop
    12:49 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Talking about wine, my Mom, who is a health nut, gets sent cases of wine from the muscadine grape from the Duplin Winery in North Carolina. The muscadine grape has the highest resveratrol of any grape.


    This grape only grows in the Southeast U.S. where it is hot and wet. The grape is subject to fungus and develops a lot of resveratrol to fight back.

    Mom loves dry wines and this is not, but there's something about the Hatteras Red that she really goes for.

  48. Siberian Husky
    1:00 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Thank you, Rose, for remembering Steinbrenner and Sheppard.

    Mom is giving up Deadlest Catch tonight to watch the All Star Game with me. It will be mom and dog bonding time, and we are having pizza because mom is wiped out from helping a friend move this week. We can't wait to see Jimenez LIVE on our tv!

  49. Mollypop
    1:10 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Rio – I will do like B. and watch the first 2 innings with Jimenez. We just lost our signal from Dish but we're assuming it will be back before 8 p.m. It had better. Grrr.

    What are our precious Yankees going to do without their Fearless Leader? Sob.

  50. B. Stover
    1:23 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Interesting article Mollypop.

    Is the All Star game on at the same time for everyone?

  51. Riö - The Evil
    2:20 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Memories!…. Clowns to the left of me joker’s to the right. Here I am stuck in the middle with you!…snort!… We are watching Reservoir Dogs right now and one of our favorite songs is on… grunt!…But it is on during one of those scenes we do not watch…heh!…( I do but she doesn’t )…cough!

    Stover!…Same time different time zones!…snort!snort!…I am so excited to see our young pitcher in the All-Star game in just a little over ½ hour… wooooo!

    Opps!…Tim Roth just woke up again… snort!…Back to the movie! …heh!

  52. Siberian Husky
    2:21 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Stover, It starts at 6 in the mountain time zone. If you are in the central time zone, it should start at 7 for you.

    Mom and Dad don't drink wine, but they say they'll be happy to pick up some dandelion wine for everyone when they go through the Amana Colonies next month!

    Oh, and the All-Star game is the one Mom and Dad can agree on. Go American League!

  54. Siberian Husky
    2:29 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Stover, I just read what Rio wrote and I read what I wrote and now I think we are both confused. It will be on the Fox Network-check your local listings. Do not trust Rio and I tonight on this.

  55. Riö - The Evil
    2:33 pm on July 13th, 2010

    SiberH!… It’s a “Live” game so it has to be on at the same “time”… snort!…Different time zones. Know your zone and you know the time….grunt!… Starting at 8:00 Eastern Standard Time… sneeze!… Go from there my wine drinking friends!…heh!

  56. B. Stover
    2:35 pm on July 13th, 2010

    I'm in the Eastern Time Zone and it's on at 8PM here….26 minutes from now.

    I've had dandelion wine and it's very good even if it isn't red.

  57. Riö - The Evil
    2:38 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Time!…You got to love it!…snort!…What I am getting at is this. If it starts for me and SiberH at 6:00, it will be 7:00 for Stover, and 8:00 for all you other Easterners… heh!…Now for Wolfie it will be 5:00 when the game starts. …grunt!…But we will all be watching it at the same moment in time… heh! … Am I wrong? I think not.

  58. Riö - The Evil
    2:40 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Apologies!…Stover, I thought Michigan was Central time… snort!…You are up very late sometimes my dear!…heh!

  59. Siberian Husky
    2:42 pm on July 13th, 2010

    You're not wrong, Rio, but I am glad Stover looked it up and didn't depend on us. I guessed wrong..that she was in the central time zone.

  60. B. Stover
    2:49 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Chicago is in the central time zone.

    Your time thing sounds like something from Fringe Rio.

    2:53 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Okay!…She is throwing our food in the oven right now!… snort!snort!… The neighbors crap was watered last night, so no stress there… grunt!… I’m in the best spot on the cough ready to go!…heh!…Does life get much better than this???… Does it?

  62. Riö - The Evil
    3:08 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Fringe!… You know what really sounds like something from Fringe?….snort! …The fact that the “Last of the Dixie Heroes” HAS STILL NOT SHOWN UP! …dammit!…grunt!… Its been 7 days since they said they were going to mail it out for the second time….Amazing.

    Heh!…Everybody is booing the Red Sox players!…snort!

  65. B. Stover
    3:17 pm on July 13th, 2010

    They shouldn't boo the players. Why is the game in Anaheim…or however it's spelled.

  66. B. Stover

    Number 38…

  67. Sam
    3:19 pm on July 13th, 2010

    You all got me confused about this space-time continuum, but I've got the game on too!

    How come there are 6 from the Red Sox and only 5 from the Yankees. That's no fair!

  68. Mollypop
    3:20 pm on July 13th, 2010

    I'm watching – what a fun night this will be!

  69. Siberian Husky
    3:27 pm on July 13th, 2010

    I agree. They shouldn't boo the players.

  70. Riö - The Evil
    3:37 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Booing!… I never boo players…snort!… I just curse Manny Ramirez…cough!…But he is not on tonight so no cursing or booing from me!… grunt!

  71. Riö - The Evil
    3:57 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Ubaldo!…. He is up next!…gasp!…We here cannot breath! We want him to be fabulous! …gasp!…We love this guy!

  72. Mollypop
    4:00 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Fabulous? He almost killed my Jeter.

  73. Siberian Husky
    4:04 pm on July 13th, 2010

    We love him, too, Rio. It would have been an accident, Molly.

  74. Riö - The Evil
    4:04 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Woooo!…. The inning is Saved by a Double play – no score!… heh!heh! …This is going to be good!…snort!…Molly, he has never actually killed anyone at bat…snicker!…Jeter beware!

  75. wookie of chevy chas
    4:06 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Watching here in Chevy Chase. Great double play to get out of the first inning! We lost satellite during the pre-game due to a bad thunderstorm, but fortUnately got it back before the game started. Wookie

  76. Riö - The Evil
    4:23 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Whew!… Ubaldo did not let anyone score on his watch!… snort!…Now we can breath a little easier!… sigh…. Our Tulowitzki is there, but he is injured so he will not play short-stop tonight… sob!…He is so excellent, but he has been out of the game for a long time now…crumb!… Hey our guys are finally getting on base!…Woooo!

    Wookie!…Glad you could make it after all!…snort!

  77. Riö - The Evil
    4:31 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Jeter!… The Marlins pitcher wants to kill him too!…heh!heh!…snort!

  78. Kirby T. Penworthy
    4:31 pm on July 13th, 2010

    We were taking bets here to see when the game would actually start — too much pre-game folderol! The Big-A stadium in Anaheim is a great place. I have many fond memories of watching my beloved CALIFORNIA ANGELS there. (And you can leave Los Angeles out of it, thank you very much!)

  79. Sam
    4:37 pm on July 13th, 2010

    T., I thought it was going to be my bedtime before someone actually threw a ball.

    5:02 pm on July 13th, 2010

    West Coast!…Welcome to my world!…snort!…All those damn West Coast games start late and end really late… grunt!… I thought when they said the “game” started at 6:00 they meant it – at least as a courtesy to the East Coast fans…But no!

  81. B. Stover
    5:03 pm on July 13th, 2010

    A Detroit Tiger was pitching.

  82. Kirby T. Penworthy
    5:13 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Sam: It would be nice if they would just come out and admit that they're having a one-hour pre-game show, with the first pitch at X o'clock!

  83. Riö - The Evil
    5:18 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Old Spice!… heh! Those commercials crack my friend up…snort!… I don’t get it at all…snuff! … The Nationals are at bat again!…COME ON! Get some runs! Dammit!…grunt!

  84. Mollypop
    5:27 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Well, they didn't try to bean Jeter this time.

  85. Riö - The Evil
    5:31 pm on July 13th, 2010

    NY… I have a soft spot for the Yankees today, so I won’t say anything about that Jeter guy right now… snuff!

  86. Kirby T. Penworthy
    5:35 pm on July 13th, 2010

    I must say, it feels strange to root for the Yankees — or anyone else in the American League!

  87. Riö - The Evil
    5:36 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Ugh!… A Red Sox batter is up…snort!… One of Admin’s friends most likely… grunt!

  88. Riö - The Evil
    5:58 pm on July 13th, 2010

    OMG!… The biggest hit for the National league in YEARS!…snort!… It is now 3-1 finally for the first time there is actually a glimmer of hope… heh!

    B.Stover: Detroit did well. I got put off by the pre-game hoopla and am watching the game sporadically. All Star games are fairly long and boring.

  94. Siberian Husky
    6:19 pm on July 13th, 2010

    I got to see Jimenez pitch!! I think regular season games when you are rooting for your own team are much more exciting than the All Star Game. The pre-game nonsense was totally unnecessary and boring.

  95. dawson
    6:20 pm on July 13th, 2010

    Boring unless your team is winning.

  96. Riö - The Evil
