Janese,






The
yellowed
background
for
spell
checking
is
purely
nuts!






When
I
just
read
your
mentioning
that
a
male
client
of
mine
had
stiffed
me
for $60, I
thought "No,
that
was
a
woman, and
it
was
only $45",
it
occurred
to
me
that
I
have
a
pattern
here
that
I
don't
likeI
stewed
a
little
bit
about
the
money
I
lost
with
the
women
yesterday
but
as
it
turned
out, the
whole
deal
was
a
big
communications
problem
on
the
part
of
several
people.






But, Janese
I've
got
to
stop
losing
moneyThere, I've
said
it! Perhaps my guardian angel is listening






Oh, ugh
I
am
pretty
sure
that
this
new
software
is
not
made
by
Lotus/IBM
and
why
does
a
little
square
show
up
every
so
often?






I'm
getting
a
lot
out
of
the
Canfield
books, but
last
night
I
had
the
urge
to
read
another
mystery, so
I
began
reading

T
is
for
Trespass

by
Sue
Grafton
and
this
is
one
of
her
bestA
friend
gave
me
this
book
a
while
ago
and
told me as
muchI've
read
all
of
the
series
in
order
from
the
library; it
is
a
real
treat
to
be
reading
this
brand
new
hardcover
book
with
a
shiney
new
book
jacket.






I
have
not
heard
of
a
block watch coordinator.  What does this entail?  When I
was little and growing up in W.Vaduring WWIIwe had neighborhood watch 






commanders






Really
running
late
today, but
I
wanted
to
post
this
reply
to
you
before
I
go
out
into
the
real
world
of
the

Hi
Edie,




I
was
referring
to
your
posting
on
Sat. that
said
you
trusted
a
client
who
paid
you
in
cash
the
amount
due
of $200.00
He
handed
you
the
money
and
said $200.00
and
you
wrote
him
a
receipt
and
then
found
out
when
you
got
home
that
it
was
only $140.00
and
he's
on
his
way
to
CaliforniaDid
a
woman
also
stiff
you
yesterdayIt's
hard
to
follow
what
post
goes
with
what
here
sometimesI
wish
we
had
numbers
and
I
too
hate
those
square
yellow
boxes
from
spell
checkI
hope
they
get
rid
of
themI
don't
really
care
if
someone
spells
right
or
not
here
as
long
as
I
know
what
they
are
talking
aboutI
hope
you
work
situation
improvesHave
faithAs
I
was
typing
things
started
to
slow
down
and
my
top
two
lines
are
now
all
highlighted
in
yellowThe
square
yellow
boxes
are
back
and
they
are
slowing
me
downI
hate
this
program.




I'm
sure
you
will
enjoy
the
Sue
Grafton
book
as
you've
made
it
all
the
way
up
to
the
letter "T"
so
you
must
like
her
booksI
have
not
picked
out
a
different
book
yetMaybe
later
today.




A
block
watch
co-ordinator
is
in
charge
of
relaying
any
crime
updates
in
the
area
to
her
block
watch
captainsTo
make
our
city
safer
several
blocks
are
involved
in
the
block
watch
programNeighbors
that
wish
to
be
a
part
of
it
exchange
info
as
to
who
lives
in
their
home, their
car
make/model/license, do
they
have
an
alarm
system, any
special
abilities
like
CPR, etc
We
also
have
signs
in
our
windows
that
say
Neighborhood
Block
Watch
with
a
picture
of
a
big
eye
and
then
it
says "If
I
Don't
Call
The
Police
My
Neighbor
Will".  I
attend
meetings
and
relay
crime
prevention
tips
back
to
my
captains
and
they
get
the
word
out
to
their
neighborsWe
also
hold
neighborhood
events
like
rummage
sales
and
neighborhood
cleanup.




Hope
you
have
a
less
stressful
day
at
the
Y.

Hi
Maggie,




You're
not
the
only
one
falling
behindI
never
seem
to
get
caught
upRight
now
I'm
trying
to
do
three
things
at
onceI'm
answering
posts, writing
a
letter
to
my
brother
and
watching
the
Today
showI
write
my
brother
while
waiting
for
posts
to
go
throughMulti-taskinglol




I'm hoping that they will go back to the numbers system. 
I loved that you could go back to the old posts by clicking on the
number.  It is frustrating sometimes.  I always get an
e-mail telling me that I've received a new post or that someone
has started a new topic in one of the groups in which I
belong.  Check your settings on your profile page and make
sure you have checked the appropriate boxes.  Hopefully, that
will help.





I have not watched "No Country For Old Men" as
yet.  I have 2 movies at home right now from Netflix. 
That one and "Eastern Promises" and today I will receive
"Enchanted".  No country is a 2 1/2 hour movie and
I just haven't had time to watch it as yet.  I will let you
know what I think of it when I do.  Tonight is movie night
with my girlfriend and we will probably see "Definitely
Maybe" because we have a ticket for one free admission and it
can only be used on a movie that is not a new release.  After
that, we'll come home for dinner and then we will probably watch
"Enchanted" because my friend is not interested in the
other two movies. 





How is "Heartwood" going?  I'm not sure but you
are probably right about Spinner recommending it.  You said
you started the book in the middle.  Is that your normal
practice?  What about the beginning?





I've posted several photos on my profile
page.  Have you seen them yet?  Most of my grandchildren
are there.  I'm missing Brandon as I don't have a current
picture of him on my digital camera.  I will have to get one soon.





I gave up reading my book "Reading
Lolita in Tehran" because I've been so busy with my block
watch stuff that I felt a need to look for something
lighter.  I only got 28 pages into it and though I enjoyed
what I read it definitely is a book that requires some thinking so
I will read it when I'm not so busy.





Have a great day.




Janese




Hi, Janese,




Sorry
about
not
being
clearer
when
talking
about "Heartwood".  I
remember
that
a
lot
of
books
that
Spinner
reads
seem
to
run
in
a
series, and
I
am
hoping
I
didn't
start
reading
one
of
a
series
in
the
middleDoes
that
make
more
senseI
am
enjoying "Heartwood", and
like
the
writing
style
of
Burke.




I
did
see
all
of
your
beautiful
pictures, and
can't
believe
your
great
grandson
is
so
big
already




I
wish
I
had
a 'movie' friend, because
I
love
seeing
film
on
the
big
screenI
can
go
alone, and
have, but
it
is
nice
to
share
comments
and
impressions
with
a
friendOur
movie
theatre
offers
senior
discounts
on
Friday
afternoon, so
it's
not
too
expensive
to
doI
will
have
my
granddaughters
around
next
week
because
it's
spring
break
at
their
school, and
I'm
sure
we
will
be
going
to
see "Horton
Hears
A
Who".  We
usually
rent
videos
when
they
come
to
stay, and
sometimes
I
can't
believe
what
they
want
to
watch (eg. Blonde
and
Blonder!).  The
last
time
that
they
were
here
there
must
have
been
a "Sponge
Bob" marathon
going
on, as
everytime
I
looked
at
the
TV, there
he
wasToo
much

Sorry

so
long

think
this

I

to
yetI
wish
it

it
said

on

keep

until

will be corrected.  It's a pain to type a long message only to
lose it.  I haven't had too much problem with that.  I've
only lost one message so far. 



I've decided to give up on "Reading Lolita in
Tehran" for now.  It's a book that demands a little too
much mind involvement.  I'm hoping to pick something a little
more light.  I'm just too busy right now organizing everything
for my new position as the block watch co-ordinator.  I only
read 28 pages in the book.  It is definitely one I want to read
but not at this time.



I'm so sorry to hear about the guy who stiffed you for
$60.00.  It's a shame that you can't trust people.  Your
book sounds like one I should be reading as I could use some help
with focus.  I have so much work to do with this new position
and yet sometimes I get on this computer and end up playing silly
games like mahjoong which I don't understand but have fun
playing.  I scored a high in the eight thousands and I guess
that's good but since the rules aren't posted I'm not really
sure.  No games today.  I have work to do.  I'm
answering messages, writing a letter to my brother and organizing my

Sunday, my hubby and I delivered 180 flyers for our
district alderman.  It was our 29th wedding anniversary and we
were going to go out to a movie and dinner.  We delivered some
flyers before the movie and the rest after and then we were too
tired to go to dinner so we came home and ate.  We are going to
go out to eat later this week.



Have to get going now.  Hope you are having a
better week.

Hi, Janese
and
everyone!




I
was
trying
to
catch
up
on
all
the
posts
here, and
I
guess
I'll
have
to
do
it
more
frequently, as
I
am
way
behindI
wish, when
I
read
a
post, that
I
could
easily
find
what
it
is
in
response
toIt's
hard
to
go
back
and
forth
between
posts
trying
to
figure
it
all
outI
don't
get
any
notification
that
a
new
post
has
been
put
on.




I
just
now
finished "No
Country
for
Old
Men", by
Cormac
McCarthyI
know
that
you
were
going
to
see
the
movie, and
wondered
what
you
thought
of
itThe
book
is
a
very
good
and
a
somewhat
quick
read, but
with
a
lot
of
deep
thought
in
itI
don't
know
how
they
convey
all
that
in
the
movieOf
course
I
kept
seeing
Tommy
Lee
Jones
while
I
read
it, and
the
guy
who
won
the
academy
award
for
his
role
in
the
filmI
guess
Brolin
played
Moss, but
I
had
no
preconceived
idea
of
what
he
looked
like.




I
finally
picked
up
a
book
by
James
Lee
Burke, "Heartwood", and
I
hope
it's
not
part
of
a
series
and
I
am
starting
in
the
middleIsn't
it
Spinner
that
always
recommends
him
as
an
author




I
also
have "In
Defense
of
Food" by
Michael
PollanThis
selection
stemmed
from
my
reading
of "Animal,
Vegetable, Miracle" by
Barbara
Kingsolver
and
I
want
to
see
how
it
may
compare.




It's
so
good
to
see
that
most
everyone
is
hereEdie,
Spinner
and
all
the
rest!  Hope you all get some photos posted.... not just of yourselfSpinner!  It's another great way to share our interests.

Hi
Nancy,




Glad
you've
figured
everything
out
and
you
and
Edie
have
found
each
otherAs
for
the
spell
check
I
don't
think
there
is
a
way
to
turn
it
off
but
if
you
find
one
let
me
know
as
it
drives
me
nuts
too.

 Janese,





I
do
receive
e-mail
notices
of
my
posts
here; I
had
the
same
problem
with
my
message
cut (with
AARP
saying
my
browser
shut
down) with
replys
I've
written
to
Bonnie
and
Spinner, tooMy
computer
doesn't
shut
down
completely
at
that
point, but
I
definitely
lose
the
message
I
was
just
writing.   I
think
it
is
a
glitch
in
the
new
website's software  which
will
eventually
iron
itself
out.






I
found
Stella
Whitelaw's

Pray
and
Die

just
a
little
too
fluffy
so
I
stopped
reading
it.






Right
now
I'm
concentrating
on
the
two
Jack
Canfield
books
on
self-esteem
and
focus.   Boy, do
I
need
some
help
in
these
areas
right
nowThis
morning
I
trusted
that
a
client
had
paid
me in cash the
correct
amount
due ($200) and
I
didn't
count
it
out
myselfHe
handed
me
the
cash, saying
"$200" as
I
wrote
out
a
receipt
for
him
in
that
amountLater
I
found
that
he
had
only
given
me $140
and
he
is
already
on

Janese, thanks
for
the
instructionsI
went
where
you
told
me
and
all
my
boxes
are
checkedGuess
that's
the
default
because
I
don't
ever
remember
being
in
that
part
of
the
site.



Now
that
I
know
about
e-mail
notifications, can
you
tell
me
how
to
ask
someone
to
be
my "friend"?  I
want
to
invite
Edie
to
be
my
friend, but
I
just
can't
find
the
place
to
do
itThe
only
place
I
find
asks
for
an
e-mail
address
and
I
know
that's
not
it.



This
spell
check
program
is
driving
me
nutsI'm
going
to
look
for
the
place
to
disable
it.



My
book
group
read

Reading
Lolita

a
while
backI
finished
it
but
wasn't
as
interested
in
it
as
I
am
in
other
booksI
think
we've
been
buried
under
books
about
Iraq, Iran
and
Afghanistan
lately
and
I'm
a
bit
tired
of
themBut
SeniorNet
is
going
to
read
and
discuss

A
Thousand
Splendid
Suns

in
November
and
I
think
by
then
I'll
be
ready
for
another
Middle
East
novel.



My
partner, Gene, was
diagnosed
with
the
flu
this
morningI
just
brought
four
prescriptions
to
our
local
drug
storeHe
had
a
milder
version
a
few
months
ago, but
this
is
really
knocking
him
outNeither
one
of
us
got
any
sleep
last
night
because
of
his
coughingAnd
this
morning
I
started
to
coughWhen
is
spring
coming
so
we
can
stop
sharing
these
bugs?!



Have
a
good
weekendI
think
we're
going
to
have
rain
all
weekend.   -- Nancy


 


 




Hi
Nancy,




I
see
by
reading
some
of
the
postings
here
that
you
managed
to
add
Edie
as
your
friendHope
you
are
getting
around
the
board
better
nowI
haven't
been
on
much
lately.




I
think
I'm
going
to
put "Reading
Lolita" aside
for
nowI've
only
read
about
28
pages
and
though
I
like
it
I
just
haven't
had
time
to
really
get
into
itI
think
it
would
be
wise
at
this
time
to
pick
a
lighter
bookI
think
I'll
set
it
aside
for
summer
readingI
would
also
like
to
read "A
Thousand
Splendid
Suns" as
I
enjoyed "The
Kite
Runner" very
muchThe
movie "The
Kite
Runner" comes
out
on
DVD
next
Tuesday
and
I
can't
wait
to
see
it.



I hope Gene is doing better and that you haven't picked
up what he had.  Supposedly spring is due next week but you
can't prove it by the weather.  Today it's cold but there is a
warm up for a few days and then come Friday I may be shoveling
again.  That's the second day of spring.  Guess you can't
count on the calendar.



Off to a meeting tonight so I better get a few more
messages answered before I leave.  Take care.

Yes, you
are
my
friend
and
I'm
so
glad.



I've
served
on
two
juries
and
was
excused
from
oneIn
that
one
the
defendant
was
a
19-year
old
boy
who
ran
over
a
bicyclistHe
looked
just
like
my
son, so
they
figured
I
couldn't
be
fair.



Then
eight
years
ago
I
served
on
a
murder
trialWow,
what
an
eye-opener
to
the
way
justice
is
runAfter
a
week
and
a
half, we
found
him
guiltyIt
was
a
tough
decision
because
the
defense
dragged
in
all
his
prison
pals
who
testified
that
he
told
them
he
never
did
anythingWell,
who
wouldn't
lie
for
a
prison
mateThe
thing
that
caused
us
to
find
him
guilty
was
a
very
reliable
detective
who
was
knowledgeable
in
interviewing
people
and
who
knew
how
to
read
body
languageTwice
the
defendant
told
him
he
wasn't
guilty
and
the
detective
knew
he
was
lyingFinally,
the
defendant
said
he
had
killed
the
woman, and
the
detective
said
he
could
tell
by
his
body
language
that
he
was
telling
the
truth.



I
can't
talk
about
this
trial
yet, but
when
it's
over, I'll
fill
you
inI
enjoy
being
on
a
jury - especially
now
that
I'm
retired. There
are
five
men
on
this
juryNone
of
them
have
spoken
about
their
marital
status, but
I'll
keep
you
in
mind.



Nancy




Hi, Nancy...........




I
have
been
on
several
juries
and
always
find
them
interestingThe
only
rough
thing
about
serving
here
in
Chicago
is
when
you
are
on
a
criminal
juryCriminal
court
is
in
a
pretty
bad
neighborhood
and
even
though
they
have
built
a
great
new
parking
lot
it
is
still
creepy
to
have
to
walk
to
your
car
if
it's
night
time, which
I
had
to
do
onceThe
one
criminal
case
I
was
on
was
a
drug
thing, and
I
didn't
believe
that
the
boy
was
guilty, but
never
experienced
the
kind
of
pressure
we
went
throughThe
judge
kept
saying
that
if
we
didn't
come
up
with
a
verdict
we
were
going
to
be
sequestered, which
was
ridiculous
considering
the
caseWe
were
told
that
so
often
by
the
bailiff
that
I
was
sure
the
judge
had
a
golf
game
the
next
dayYou
can't
imagine
the
hostility
that
comes
your
way
if
you
are
the
last
holdoutI
finally
agreed
to
guilty
on
a
technicality
that
was
brought
up, but
never
felt
right
sending
an
18yr
old
boy
to
prisonWe
were
not
present
at
the
sentencing.




Other
than
that, I've
done
mostly
product
liability
casesFunny,
ever
since
I've
retired
I've
not
been
calledIt
would
be
interesting
and
I
have
the
time
now, but
maybe
they
think
I've
done
my
bitSince
I
worked
in
downtown
Chicago, I
would
go
to
work
early, run
off
to
the
courthouse, back
to
work
at
lunch, and
then
to
work
when
we
were
released
for
the
dayMy
longest
trial
was
two
weeks, so
I
was
lucky
in
that
respect.




This
subject
is
so
off
topic, but
I
think
that
part
of
my
enjoyment
came
from
reading
all
the
John
Grisham
books
about
trials, and
then
actually
participating
in
themAnd
I
could
read
on
the
train
to
town
and
also
at
jury
duty
before
I
was
assigned
to
a
case.

Hi
everyone,




Thought
I'd
get
my
thread
started
here
on
what's
everyone
readingI'm
currently
reading
John
Grisham's "The
Summons".  It's
very
interesting
and
I
hope
to
finish
it
sometime
todayWhat's
on
your
coffee
table, nightstand
or
end
table?




Janese




Hi, Janese
and
everyone!




I
was
trying
to
catch
up
on
all
the
posts
here, and
I
guess
I'll
have
to
do
it
more
frequently, as
I
am
way
behindI
wish, when
I
read
a
post, that
I
could
easily
find
what
it
is
in
response
toIt's
hard
to
go
back
and
forth
between
posts
trying
to
figure
it
all
outI
don't
get
any
notification
that
a
new
post
has
been
put
on.




I
just
now
finished "No
Country
for
Old
Men", by
Cormac
McCarthyI
know
that
you
were
going
to
see
the
movie, and
wondered
what
you
thought
of
itThe
book
is
a
very
good
and
a
somewhat
quick
read, but
with
a
lot
of
deep
thought
in
itI
don't
know
how
they
convey
all
that
in
the
movieOf
course
I
kept
seeing
Tommy
Lee
Jones
while
I
read
it, and
the
guy
who
won
the
academy
award
for
his
role
in
the
filmI
guess
Brolin
played
Moss, but
I
had
no
preconceived
idea
of
what
he
looked
like.




I
finally
picked
up
a
book
by
James
Lee
Burke, "Heartwood", and
I
hope
it's
not
part
of
a
series
and
I
am
starting
in
the
middleIsn't
it
Spinner
that
always
recommends
him
as
an
author




I
also
have "In
Defense
of
Food" by
Michael
PollanThis
selection
stemmed
from
my
reading
of "Animal,
Vegetable, Miracle" by
Barbara
Kingsolver
and
I
want
to
see
how
it
may
compare.




It's
so
good
to
see
that
most
everyone
is
hereEdie,
Spinner
and
all
the
rest!  Hope you all get some photos posted.... not just of yourselfSpinner!  It's another great way to share our interests.




Maggie

Nancy,






Well, thanks
for
thinking
of
me
on
the
jury
guys!   Of
course, even
if
someone
actually
IS
available, he
probably
lives
more
than
a
sort
distance
from
Boston! LOL






Having
the
empty
head
that
I
have, I
have
already
forgotten
what
book
you "saved" to
read
during
jury
breaks.






I'm
still
getting
some
good
ideas
from
Jack
Canfield's
book
on
self-esteem
and
focusing.






-Edie
