Book MEME

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 […]

breakthroughs

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 […]
