I don’t know what a MEME is, but I like this list, so I want to participate…I’m going to skip the italicizing bit – I’d like to make my way through the whole list. Instrutions: Look at the list of books below. *Bold the ones you’ve read *Italicize the ones you want to read *Leave […]

Book #5

Well, I’ve finally finished The Masque of the Black Tulip.  Let me preface this review with some info. I listened to the first book in this series on audiobook. It was excellent – probably because the reader had an English accent, and it may have been abridged. That said, I did not enjoy this book […]


Well, I’m feeling pretty smart these days. I’ve gotten Apache and PHP loaded on my computer, and I’ve started developing my first site using Dreamweaver 8. That program is amazing. I know there are die-hard hand-coders out there, but not me. I’m all for using Dreamweaver to do the heavy lifting. Also, my super smart […]

lethargy smethargy…

I thought I’d write an actual post, and not just book reports. I have no interest in any of my interests this week. I don’t want to look at homework. I can’t find my disk with all my web designs saved on it, so I don’t want to work on my websites, because I hate […]

Book #3

Book #2 in the Four Seasons of Firefly Glen, Babes in Arms by Kathleen O’Brien – loved it! I read it in a day, and ordered the other two books in the series off of amazon the same day. Even cooler, I emailed the author to tell her how much I loved the first book, […]

Book #4

Funniest book I’ve read in a long time, and that includes Jon Stewart’s America. The ridiculous situations Sammy faces reminded me of so many people in my life, myself included, that I couldn’t help but relate to her plight. I would not categorize this book as Chick Lit – although I am a die-hard fan […]

Book #2

Winter Baby by Kathleen O’Brien. I’m a Harlequin junkie when the mood hits me, and I got this great book off of eHarlequin months ago. Luckily, I got the Signature Select edition, which has two books in it, so I’m already starting the next one. Great small upstate-New York town, believable characters, sweet love scenes…great […]

Book #1

I received this book through First Look, my source of free galley copies. I loved it so much that I started reading all of Parker’s books. He uses simple language, simple characters with depth, and stories that don’t have a lot of Soap Opera twists and backwards turns. The main gist is a cop’s family […]

back in the saddle

We went to Maryland for a few days to visit my husband’s grandfather. He’s moving into a full-time-care facility, and we were helping my husband’s aunt clean out his cottage. Very depressing. But my grandfather lives in a trailer in Florida and refuses to leave. He’s two years older than my husband’s grandpa. At least […]

The House Inaction

Here’s a letter I got from my representative:   Dear Mrs. <name removed> : Thank you for contacting me to share your thoughts on the Safe Climate Act of 2006 . Representing the interests of the 49 th Congressional District is made much easier by people like you, who take the time and effort to […]
