Product Description
Where is Adam?

Julie Raynes’ husband has been missing for six months. Devastated and confused, she refuses to believe that he would leave her voluntarily, though her best friend thinks differently. However, her Aunt Alice, a psychic, tells her Adam has been murdered, and when she reveals how she knows this, any hope that Adam is still alive, dissipates.

The police are also beginning to believe that Adam Raynes was murdered. And Julie is their prime suspect. Her life in ruins, Julie vows to hunt down whoever is responsible for Adam’s murder and make them pay for their crime.

In the meantime, David Gray, a young man who was pulled from a lake by a fisherman when he was 9 years old, wakens from a coma after nearly two decades. Unknown to Julie, Adam and David share a dark connection, a darkness that threatens to devour both of them, in a terrifying race with death.

Amazon Echo's New Pomodoro Skill

Just stumbled across this new Pomodoro Skill on Reddit, and I thought some of you might be interested in checking it out. My Dots are in the kitchen and bedroom--I have a Google Home in my office--or i would try it out myself.

I had to look up pomodoro in wikileaks to find out what this is and why it's named for a tomato. Interesting and the skill works, at least for the few minutes I tried it, but honestly the ticking would drive me nuts. I do sometimes keep a clock open on the bottom of my screen to track elapsing time but that's resolutely silent.

I think you could find pomodoro easier on wikipedia rather than wikileaks....  :o

Egads, tic-tic-tic-tic-tic-tic... this would be a cool Echo skill to have if you could disable the non-stop timer ticking in the background. I wouldn't be able to get any writing done.

I'll stick with my phone app.

Quick video I made of it in action:

Ticking might be good "white noise" to put you to sleep.  A lot of other sleep sounds to choose from though.
