Nancy,







YesYou
ARE
my
friend
already!








I
do
envy
you
being
called
onto
jury
duty, but
my
day
has
to
come
soonI
have
heard
from
friends
who
have
served
on
juries
that
they
have
made
some
new
and
lasting
friends
that
way.









Say... if
you
happen
to
meet
a
fellow
juror
who
happens
to
be
a
single
guy
who
loves
dogs, would
you
give
him
my
nameLOL











On
my
ipod
I
am
listening to  Sue Miller's latest book The Senator's Wife.    This one '

to

onto
the

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

has
been
taxed
to
the
limit
trying
to
remember
the
rules
of
the
court
and
details
of
each
witness's
testimony.



My

MondayI
told

I
was
unable
to
come
because
I

that
we're
off
Monday, I've
decided
not

anywayI'm
very
tired
and
don't
look
forward
to
a
2-hour

to

of

tell
me
what
the

and
I'll
get
it
after
I
finish

3rd
Degree
.



OT: the

weirdHas

Hi
Nancy,


 




I'm
not
having
a
lot
of
trouble
with
the
site
now
and
I
really
like
Firefox
and
have
been
using
it
almost
since
it
came
out.




I
think
I've
only
read
one
or
two
of
Patterson's
books. I
just
never

go

t
started
on
him.




I
was
on  a
list
for
jury
duty
for
three
months
but
never
got
called. I
didn't
want
to
do
it
anyhow.


 




Happy
Reading...................Spinn

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.



Janese




 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
his
way
back
to
California.

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

I don't care for the spell check on this site at

I've typed an entire sentence before it even shows up.  Very

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.

J.D. Salinger
voluntarily
became
a
recluse
somewhere
in
the
forests
and
mountains
of
New
HampshireTo
the
best
of
my
knowledge, he's
still
livingHe
was
born
in
1919, so
he
would
be
89
years

old
.




I
haven't
heard
anything
about
him
passing
on
and
I
get
the
daily
paper
and
watch
the
news
so
I
think
they
would
have
said
somethingHopefully, at
89
he
isn't
too
alone
in
those
mountains.
