Released just a few months ago, today’s Read is already delightfully dated. As of Sunday, a new chapter needs to be added to The Pats: An Illustrated History of the New England Patriots by Glenn Stout and Richard A. Johnson. Still, this book is chock full of the whole history of the Pats, including the tough years long before three guys named Brady, Belichick and Kraft showed up – which makes a fan (and outside observers) appreciate even more what the franchise has accomplished in the past two decades.

About The Pats: An Illustrated History of the New England Patriots by Glenn Stout and Richard A. Johnson:

“The New England Patriots have become a dynasty, though it didn’t begin that way. Love ’em, hate ’em, the Pats have captured this country’s attention like no other franchise. From two award-winning authors this is the first complete story of a legendary team and its five trophies. In the tradition of their celebrated illustrated histories of some of sports’ most iconic franchises, Stout and Johnson tell the history in full and in colorful detail. This is a lavishly illustrated tale full of larger-than-life characters – from founding owner Billy Sullivan, early stars like Syracuse running back Jim Nance and beloved wide receiver turned broadcaster Gino Cappeletti, to Hall of Famers and stars like John Hannah, Russ Francis, and Steve Grogan through to present-day stars like Tom Brady and Bill Belichick and owner Bob Kraft.”

The Pats: An Illustrated History of the New England Patriots by Glenn Stout and Richard A. Johnson is available from Amazon and other fine booksellers everywhere.

 

 

Seriously, you have to love a place called Fromagination – purveyors of fine cheeses of course. I fell a little more in love with them when I discovered their Artisan Cheese & Charcuterie Tray – which includes everything your need for a nice evening at home, with or without guests.

“Each of these trays are one-of-a-kind assortments specially selected for you by our cheesemongers from around Wisconsin and around the world.

The ‘adventurous’ assortment gathers a selection of more exclusive cheeses that are at the peak of their flavor. Paired with your favorite beer or wine, these cheeses will be sure to please.  Each tray includes an assortment of breads, nuts and crackers and is accompanied by a description of the cheese selected for you.

I don’t know exactly what a “pixie box” is, but the fine folks at Oh Dier offer a few. But I do know that I like their Pixie Salt Cellar… a lot!

About the Pixie Salt Cellar from Oh Dier:

“Can’t decide between Himalayan pink or fleur de sel? Kosher or Hawaiian red? Store them both in Oh Dier’s new twist on their Pixie design—a double-chambered salt cellar pretty enough to leave out on the countertop. Not a chef? You can store any small treasure in it—provided it’s worth its salt.”

The fine folks at Jos. A. Magnus & Co. make some pretty nice spirits, like their Murray Hill Club Blended Bourbon.

About the Murray Hill Club Bourbon from Jos. A. Magnus & Co.:

“A blended bourbon whiskey, Murray Hill Club is crafted using the same blending techniques Magnus used to create the original Pre-Prohibition spirit over 100 years ago.

I have a real problem. Well, I have many problems, but the one I am posting about today is my love of puffy winter coats. I have, at last count, six of them.
