Monopoly Game – Greenwich Edition
Luxury Products
Greenwich Monopoly Gamebox

Cold and rainy weather will soon be here making it the perfect time to stay inside and play family board games. I grew up playing epic, marathon games of Monopoly with my sister Joanne and brother David. As young children we spent many countless happy hours playing this game of skill, luck, and strategy, which was permanently installed on the games table in the family room of our home. When I learned that Top Trumps USA Inc. was introducing a new Monopoly Greenwich (Connecticut) edition, it brought a smile to face and my heart raced with anticipation of playing their new game. For the Greenwich edition, Monopoly has replaced the famous properties of my youth with Greenwich landmarks.

Wine and the White House: A History by Frederick J Ryan, Jr
If you love wine, history, and formal dinners, you are going to love the book Wine and the White House: A History by Frederick J. Ryan, Jr. I fell in love with this stunning book filled with interesting anecdotes about the Presidents of the United States of America from President George Washington through President Donald Trump, and provides an in-depth look at the history of wine served at the White House through the years. For gastronomy lovers, the book is also interesting as it includes menus from the dinners and the wines that accompanied each of the courses. More than a gorgeous coffee table book, it is also a wonderful reference book for yourself or to give as a gift.

Vincent van Gogh A Life in Letters
What I found especially interesting about the book Vincent van Gogh A Life in Letters edited by Nienke Bakker, Leo Jansen and Hans Luijten published in September 2020 by Thames & Hudson, Ltd is that Vincent's story is not told by someone else, rather his life deftly unfolds by Vincent himself through his letters to his brother Theo van Gogh (1857 - 1891) providing the reader with new insight into the mind and world of the artist.

Alastair Greene - The New World Blues is a fresh and exciting release from Alastair Greene and has his trademark creative lyrics and blazing electric and slide guitar. The release features a Power Trio of Alastair Greene, Tab Benoit on drums and harmonies, and Corey Duplechin on bass. The New World Blues was recorded with limited remixing and only a few overdubs resulting in a "raw" energy filled release that is cut from the souls of the Power Trio.
