Monopoly Game – Greenwich Edition
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.

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.

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 edited by Nienke Bakker, Leo Jansen, and Hans Luijten
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.
