Hi
Spinner,




Everyone
has
been
on
here
nearly
everydayAre
you
sure
that
you
are
seeing
all
postsSometimes
they
don't
all
show
up
and
you
have
to
click
on
back
to all topics and go back into the
group.  You are right about the site.  Edie has had so
many problems with it.  She gets kicked off constantly and I
hate the spellcheck and those yellow boxes.  No one seems to
like it but so far they haven't decided to get rid of it.  Sure
hope it gets better.  I never have to enter my e-mail or
password.  I saved one of the message notifications and I just
click on that and it takes me to my profile page.



It's snowing like mad out there.  Not looking
forward to shoveling.  I have cleaning, laundry and baking to
do today.  Easter is at my house.



Talk to you later.



Janese





Janese,






Remember
when
I
told
you
all
that
a
California
client
had
ripped
me
off
for $60?






Well, my
face
is

red
Yesterday
I
found
the "missing" $60
in
another
section
of
my
briefcaseDuh-uh.






Hope
you
are
having
a
wonderful
Easter!






Is
it
a
crime
to
shoot
a
computerIf
that's
what
it
takes
to
get
rid
of
this
yellow
background, might
it
workLOL

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



I'm
done
with
jury
duty
because
I
was
excused
last
Wednesday
by
my
doctorI
have
some
sort
of
chest
problem
with
a
cough
that
just
won't
quitMy
doctor
gave
me
an
inhaler
and
some
hydrocodone, but
the
thing
that
works
the
best
is
good
old
Hall's
cough
drops.



My
book
group
met
without
me, but
I
was
able
to
put
my
two
cents
in
about "Tractors"over 
the
InternetThe
one
woman
who
wrote
back
to
me
said
she
agreed
that
it
wasn't
humorous
and
she
hated
the
main
character, too
All
I
can
say
is
that
it
was
easy
to
read.



We're
now
reading "The


Concubine
'

s
Children" by
Denise
ChongLast
year
we
read
a
book
about
a
Chinese
man
coming
to
San
Francisco
during
the
gold
rush
and
creating
a
manufacturing
empire
hereI
think
it
was
called "Gold
Mountain".  This
book
is
the
story
of
his
concubine
who
he
brought
to
the
United
States, while
his "at
home" wife
stayed
in
ChinaI
haven't
started
it
yet, but
it
sounds
very
good.

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.




Maggie





Maggie,






I
was
just
doing
some
surfing
and
came
across
you
post
about
your
experiences
on
jury
duty






I
do
wonder
why
I
am
not
being
called
for
jury
dutyActually, I
was
called
once
ages
ago, but
I
never
made
it
into
court
because
the
case
was
settled
out
of
court.






I
love
the
John
Grisham
books
and
Brad
Meltzer's
mysteries, too,
which
are
similar
but
separately
interestingHave
you
read
anything
by
Lisa
ScottolineShe's
another
good
mystery
writer, IMHO...
as
is
Linda
FairsteinOh, so
may
books, so
little
time!

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



 




Hi
Maggie,




Yep, I'm
the
one
who
loves
James
Lee
Burke
books. You
just
happened
to
pick
one
that
I
haven't
read. I've
read
all
his
books
set
in
Louisiana
but
not
the
ones
set
in
TX
and
Montana. I
started
one
of
them
but
stopped
after
about
60
pages. I
definitely
suggest
the
Louisiana
books. Dave
Robicheaux
is
the
lead
character
in
all
of
them. They're
better
read
in
order
but
it's
not
absolutely




necessary

Hello,



I'm
new
to
this, but
my
bookshelf
is
bulging
with
paperbacks
courtesy
of
Friends
of
the
LibraryI
prefer
paperbacks, they
are
not
as
heavyUnless
one
gets
their
hands
on
a
many
page
book



A
couple
of
years
ago
I
ended
up
convalescing
after
knee
replacements
and
found "Outlander" by
Diana
GabaldonIt
has
been
around
for
awhile, but
good
storyRanges
from
post
WWII
to
18th
Century
Scotland. The
series
took
me
through
a
6
month
convalescenceIt
pulled
together
an
idea
what
life
might
have
been
like
in
those
18th
century
days, plus
a
little
mystical
approach
thrown
inI
became
thoroughly
engrossed
in
the
lives
of
the
charactersThe
majority
of
the
books
are
near
a
1,000
pages.



Lately, my
son
has
been
sending
me
books
of
the "People
of
the_______" series
by
Kathleen
O'Neal
Gear
and
W. Michael
GearMost
recent
is "The
Morning
River" by
W. Michael
GeerSatisfactory
story, I
am
now
in
the
second
book
of
the
story, "Coyote
Summer".



I
like
their
booksI
have
read
most
of
the
books
by
these
authorsIt
gives
depth
to
what
might
have
been
and
what
the
ancient
people
endured

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




Maggie




Hi
Maggie,




Oh, you
meant
the
middle
of
the
seriesI
thought
that
was
a
funny
way
to
read
a
book. 
Sometimes the series don't have to be read in order.  I know I
read some David Baldacci books in order but the story itself was
separate.  The only thing that was the same was the two main
characters.  You wouldn't have known their history but it
wouldn't have affected the story if you didn't know it. 
Hopefully, that's the case with your book.  Glad you are
enjoying it.



Glad you were able to see my photos.  I haven't
gotten around to posting anymore lately.  Too busy with other
things.  I hope to get some things done today as my friend just
called and cancelled our movie plans.  She has a
toothache.  I don't mind as I do have a lot of things to
do.  I'm having Easter here this Sunday.  It will be Don
& I, his mother, sister, niece and Don's single friend
Ray.  What are your plans? 



I've gone to the movies alone on occasion too but it
isn't the same.  Too bad I'm not there we could go
together.  Let me know how you like Horton if you go.  It
looks really cute and has received great reviews.  I'm not into
the "Sponge Bob" character but kids seem to like
him.  I had the "Sponge Bob" movie and I gave it to
my niece for her kids after their home burned down.   Have
a great week with your grandkids.  I'm hoping the weather
clears up a little so I can take Kaylee for a walk.  It
was too cold yesterday.  Right now it's pretty foggy and a bit
rainy. 



Talk to you again soon.  Have a good day.



Janese
