Edie, congratulations
on
finally
getting
onto
this
new
siteI'm
slowly
getting
used
to
itBut
now
I
don't
get
any
notices
about
posts
have
appeared
in
my
message
boardsI
guess
we
have
to
get
on
once
in
a
while
and
see
if
we
have
any
messages
to
the
right
of
our
name.



Spinner, I'm
using
Firefox
to
get
onto
the
new
AARP
site
and
I
haven't
had
any
problemsBut
my
computer
in
general
is
sometimes
not
very
reliable.



I've
been
called
to
serve
on
a
jury
and
have
been
at
court
Wednesday
and
todayWe're
adjourned
until
next
Wednesday
afternoonI
decided
to
read
a
quick, easy
book, so
I
took

3rd
Degree

by
James
Patterson, off
my
book
shelfVery
easy
to
read
and
quick
to
get
into
the
storyThat's
what
I
need
nowMy
brain
has
been
taxed
to
the
limit
trying
to
remember
the
rules
of
the
court
and
details
of
each
witness's
testimony.



My
f2f
book
group
is
meeting
MondayI
told
them
I
was
unable
to
come
because
I
was
serving
on
a
juryNow
that
we're
off
Monday, I've
decided
not
to
go
anywayI'm
very
tired
and
don't
look
forward
to
a
2-hour
ride
to
the
home
of
the
hostess
of
the
monthThey'll
tell
me
what
the
book
for
April
will
be
and
I'll
get
it
after
I
finish

3rd
Degree
.



OT: the
spell
check
on
this
message
board
is
weirdHas
anyone
found
thatIt
uses
the
color
yellow
to
show
me
the
questionable
words/phrases, but
when
I
right-click
on
it, the
drop
down
menu
only
appears
for
a
second
unless
I
hold
down
the
keyIt
also
suggests
that
I
capitalize
words
that
are
in
the
middle
of
the
sentenceGuess
it's
a
bug
to
be
worked
out.

Hi
Nancy,



Go to your profile page and on your picture is the word
settings.  Click on that and then click on notifications. 
Look and see what boxes you have checked for each category. 
Then click on save changes when you are done.  This could be
why you aren't getting notifications.  Hope that helps.



I was only called for jury duty once.  I had to go
sit in a room and wait to see if I was needed.  Sat there all
day and never got called.  Some people were sleeping and some
watched tv but you didn't dare get up and change the channel. 
I brought a book to read but couldn't get into it.  It was a
long day.  I've never been called again.  I had to go
there for 3 days and never did get picked to be on the jury. 
I'm not sure but I might have the book "3rd Degree" in my
collection.  I know I have a few James Patterson books. 
I've been trying to read a book called, "Reading Lolita in
Tehran" but I haven't had much time to get into it yet. 
This Sunday is my 29th wedding anniversary and we are going to
dinner and a movie.  Saturday is busy chasing shopping for my
mom-in-law and for us.



I don't care for the spell check on this site at
all.  I hate the yellow flash and sometimes when you type the
words don't come up right away because of the spell check. 
I've typed an entire sentence before it even shows up.  Very
annoying.  Yes, it's just another bug to squash.

Spinner,




I
tried
posting
a
message
this
morning
to
Janese
and
my
whole
computer
shut
downSo,
I
am
back
again
and
perhaps
it
will
go
through
this
time.




I
guess
it
is
O.K. for
you
to
have
a
BOOK
about
serial
killers
in
bed
with
you
rather
than
the
real
thing!




I
was
listening
to

The
Lost
Mother

by
Mary
McGarry
Morris
on
my
ipod
and
I
found
it
so
boring
that
I
quit
and
decided
that
I
really
don't
care
if
that
mother
is

ever

found!




I
then
began
listening
to
Sue
Miller's
new
bookThe Senator's Wife,
on
my
ipod
and
this
is
much
better. :

Hi
Edie,




I
read
Spinner's
post
from
you
and
found
out
that
you
tried
to
post
to
me
but your computer shut down.  Are you
receiving notifications of postings?  If not go to your profile
page and on your picture click on settings and then click on
notifications and see which ones you have checked.  Did you
finish "Pray and Die" ?  I think that was the name of
the book that took place in England.  I'm still reading the
same book.  Something keeps taking me away from it.  I
think it would be interesting if I ever get going on it.  This
weekend is busy.  Tomorrow is the usual running around shopping
for my mom-in-law, shopping for us at Kohl's Dept. store, and then
my hubby's friend is coming for dinner.  Sunday my hubby Don
and I are going to the show to see "The Bank Job" and then
we will go out to dinner to celebrate our 29th wedding
anniversary.  How's the weather by you?  Very nice here in
the upper 40's.  Starting to go out walking with the dog
again.  Love it!  Lots of snow melting.

This is the first time I'm trying this, so let's see what happens.


I'm reading Stella Whitelaw's Pray and Die.  It is an O.K. mystery.  I'm not entralled, but it is a new setting for me (Sussex, England), so that's good.
