In Response to What's everyone reading?
:



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?

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

Yes, you

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

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

have
spoken
about
their

I'll
keep
you
in

Nancy





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.

now
I

and

any

to

our

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

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

the

of
the

it's
a

worked
out.

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,





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.

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.

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
