It's often been observed of Shakespeare that his plays don't tell you what he thinks about most subjects. But it is hard to doubt that he believed in romantic love, that mad, intoxicating, all-encompassing feeling that inspires courtship and marriage. Many of his comedies are essentially love delivery vehicles, giddy confections that give the audience an extraordinarily broad license just to roll in the bliss of it. I think especially of Twelfth Night, Much Ado About Nothing, and A Midsummer Night's Dream. But the most love-mad of all is surely As You Like It. And thankfully, that love-mad champagne feeling is served up nearly full-force in the Chesapeake Shakespeare Company's latest rendering of the play. (more...)

Dennis Frahmann Releases THE FINNISH GIRL About a Multi-Generational Finnish American FamilyDennis Frahmann Releases THE FINNISH GIRL About a Multi-Generational Finnish American Family
by BWW News Desk - Aug 26, 2014

A multi-generational story about a Finnish American family in Wisconsin and how their American dream threatens to become a nightmare, Publishers Weekly calls the novel 'Melancholic, brooding, and cut-to-the-bone incisive, this is a tale to remember.' 'The Finnish Girl' is about how secrets kill. Not just those you choose to keep from others, or even those that others guard from you. There remains those secrets that you so desperately hide from yourself. They all catch up with Lempi Makinen Lahti. When Lempi's teenage son Danny discovers her suicide, he seeks to solve the mysteries that defined her life and death. A pack of letters and clippings hidden in an old family trunk may be the only keys to understanding both his mother's past and his own future. 'The Finnish Girl' is a richly told tapestry of interwoven characters-the family patriarch who emigrates from Finland to the United States to create his own future, a son who turns his back on his home as part of an ill-fated mission to Russia during the Depression, the elderly mother who faces deportation in an America driven by fear during the Red Scare, and the young Finnish girl who cares too much about the injustices she sees. Decisions in one generation propel another on unexpected paths, until one family's hopes for the American dream threaten to become its nightmare. 'The Finnish Girl,' a semi-finalist in the 2014 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award competition, is available in both print and ebook format.

by BWW News Desk - Aug 11, 2014

Last week's mortgage rates were driven mainly by geopolitical risk and the weakening Eurozone economy rather than local economic data, which is usually where rates take their cues from. This dynamic makes it more difficult to guess where mortgage rates might move in the week ahead, as these factors are much less predictable than data coming from scheduled reports. Blue Home Loans, Inc., a California-based full service mortgage company that has been helping CA residents find the best rates and loans available for many years, has been keeping track of these recent mortgage rates trends and now comments on the current situation and offers some advice for those who are not sure how to proceed with their home loan plans.
