Don’t Store Gloves in Coat Pockets

Even though it’s the most convenient place to stash them, to keep your gloves in the best condition you should avoid sto ring them in your coat pockets. Why?

In Greek, the letter “chi” is written as an X, and chi is the first letter of the Greek word for “Christ.” Greeks sometimes abbreviated “Christ”…

Against the Odds by Kat Martin (giveaway)

 This case may prove to be too hot to handle.  There’s silver out there: Sabrina Eckhart is sure of it. And when she finds the hidden mine on that big piece of West Texas desert, all of her financial problems are solved. That is, if she can find it. The man with the skills she needs is private investigator Alex Justice—a former navy fighter pilot and a current pain in the neck.  When mysterious “accidents” start to plague…
