    1. Standard I read this, but damned if I can remember exactly when or why or enough about it to make detail comments disclaimer My rating is based on my memory of how much or little I enjoyed the book at that time In some cases, at that time might mean before most users were born Then again, it could mean a couple years ago and that I have a lousy memory Your mileage may vary Heck, given how all our tastes change over the years and the fickle nature of memory, my own mileage might vary if I re read [...]


    2. Big Sur draws me into its quirky West Coast, isolated charm, and Nepenthe, with its fascinating history, is pretty much the center of the Big Sur World.This book is a book of love written by a woman who was fortunate enough to spend her childhood in residence at Nepenthe, when her grandmother owned and ran the place.There are some good recipes scattered throughout, but mostly, it s just a lovely paean to a Different World from the one we live in today.Relax, and enjoy the ride
