About meI am a baby boomer, married for over 30 years to the same man, mother of two somewhat adult children. I love to read almost more than anything, consuming library books at a sometimes alarming rate.

I don't care for, nor have I ever cared for scarey books (I've read some John Saul, no thank you, not again!) and I am not amused or entertained by endless descriptions of physical intimacy (I have read Clan of the Cave Bear, etc. Boring.)

I like STORIES! It can be westerns or sci-fi or children's books, genre doesn't matter (as long as it isn't scarey, see above).

Among my other interests are singing (at home, car and at church), photography, gardening, knitting, bird watching, and animals (Ha! Bet you couldn't tell that by my book choices??) including my dog and cats.

My planned reading for 2014 is here:

Addendum: a quote that I like, a lot...from a recent read, "Firmin": "And you don't have to believe stories to love them. I love all stories. I love the progression of beginning, middle, and end. I love the slow accumulation of meaning, the misty landscapes of the imagination, the mazy walks, the wooded slopes, the reflecting pools, the tragic twists and comic stumbles."

About my libraryMost of my childhood books were destroyed in storage (whimper). Also, I've had to move long distance several times, and many favorites had to be given (sob!) to lending libraries and friends due to the extreme cost of shipping/moving my tomes. Currently most of my books are paperback, but not all. My tastes have evolved, somewhat, and I enjoy mysteries, histories and other 'people' books more than I used to. An area I've not appreciated before is the Bible, the making of it, and discussions about what much of it means. And no, that's not boring at all!

Most of my recent library additions have come from Habitat for Humanity, the Goodwill Store and other inexpensive (aka 'cheap') sources such as yard sales (too bad I am not interested in Danielle Steele books...I could have a complete collection that way, lol).

Oh, and I have an addiction I have to confess: I love!

One day I hope to devote an entire room in my house to books, covering the walls with shelves...except for one small area for my computer!

You're welcome! Thanks for approving it!
Hi fuzzi - I have a question about the suitability of a book for your Challenge. I just finished Edith Wharton's "Summer." It starts in June and the last month reference is August. By the end of the book a few more weeks have gone by, but it's not clear how many. Weather references put it at sometime in early to mid September. Since summer officially runs until September 21st or so, would this work?

For RandomCAT there is a Whisper Louise rose. :-)

Hi, the photo is Santa Anita race track in California and the statue is of Seabiscuit.
Sorry, fuzzi, I can't upload a picture of the cover of "The white dingo" as I no longer have the book. I use Library Thing to keep a record of books that I collect for the Lu Rees Archives of Australian Children's Literature. I'm a volunteer at Lifeline Canberra (in Australia) and we put on 2 huge bookfairs every year to raise money for telephone counselling. As I work in the Children's section and am an ex school librarian, I watch out for books for the Archives. We sell the books to them and I deliver them every couple of months. "The white dingo" has already gone to them.
Your very welcome. I'm so glad they fit the bill. :o)
I got it up! I hope this means you have a good list to share with us. Also if you ever want to start the thread I will not be hurt. :)

Happy list making!
I haven't seen that one yet. Thanks for the pointer to it. I don't think that's Moss' work, but interesting.
Hey fuzzi,
If something changes and I don't get to Dune Messiah, I'll let you know. As it stands now, I'm going forward with my reading plan.

Fuzzi, We got over 8" here in the piedmont and my uncle who lives near the va border got over 16 inches. Hope is melts away soon. Cabin Fever and need Spring. Thanks for the use of your good pictures.
Fuzzi, Question; do you mind if I copy of your monthly reading pictures. I think they are so good? Won't copy until you say ok.

Thanks, Jan
Yes, indeed, thanks!
4213301Member jessibud2 has left a message on jessibud2's picture.
Thanks!!! Glad you enjoyed it.
I don't think I have thanked you yet for choosing my Santa Thing books. They look really good and I can't wait to read them all :-) So thank you again and I hope you had a happy holiday season!

Also, I looked at the books we shared and your profile and I wanted to suggest a few books you may enjoy. The first is by C.S. Lewis called Till We Have Faces. It is excellent. The next is by Sigmund Brouwer, it is a little harder to find but so good, it is called Magnus. Sigmund Brouwer also wrote a few other books, one of them Broken Angel is the start of a set of books. It is an interesting read and I enjoy Mr. Brouwer's writing style.

I hope you enjoy these suggestions :-) and thanks again for your Santa Thing selections.

Priceless! I had a mourning dove ON my feeder not long ago. That was a sight to see. I think he/she was as surprised as I was at the event

Adorable! Great shot!
It is an outside photo but I honestly can't remember if I used a flash. It may have been turned on without my knowing as I was trying lots of different things as I learned to use the camera. Still am, in fact, lol

Henri, you okay? It's been two weeks...

Actually got unexpectadly busy and haven't picked up a book in 34 days... cracked open Jemery Robinson's SecondWorld this morning and finished it tonight though, so mabye I'll be around a bit more now.
Thanks so much for honchoing the weightloss thread!
…but …but … it's not *me* messing up …

Thanks, fuzzi; already found it.

PS - sorry if you're name appears as 'fuzzy' in my posts. It's the automatic spell-checker doing the automatic correction thingy.
Aww, thanks fuzzi! I love it too although it was full as soon as I built it so it hasn't helped with keeping the books from piling up on the desk top!
Thank you fuzzi -I think I have been and I'm trying to fix it
Hi fuzzi,
Thank you for your kind remark. I noticed your well-tempered comment on the sanity check thread too. I am still amazed that he had to start two threads about what to do in this situation. I thought the answer should have been obvious. Maybe this is why some universities have ethics classes.

PS I enjoyed looking through your pictures, especially the wildlife and your furry family members.

Not an image of the author.
Pure copy-and-paste, so no huge credit to me...besides, the more people who have the recipe, the more joy the world gets.

I like making people hefty!
Hi fuzzi, here's the recipe:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup flour
2 eggs, large
2 tbsps lemon zest
2 tbsps lemon juice
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 teaspoon sea salt

For the tart lemon glaze:
4 tbsps lemon juice
8 tsps lemon zest
1 rounded cup powdered sugar

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
2. Grease an 8×8 inch baking dish with butter and set aside.
3. Zest and juice two lemons and set aside.
4. In the bowl of an electric mixture fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the flour, sugar, salt, and softened butter until combined.
5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the eggs, lemon zest, and lemon juice until combined.
6. Pour it into the flour mixture and beat for 2 mins at medium speed until smooth and creamy.
7. Pour into baking dish and bake for 23-25 mins, should turn golden around the edges.
8. Allow to cool completely before glazing. Do not overbake, or the bars will dry.
9. Filter the powdered sugar and whisk with lemon zest and juice.
10. Spread 1/2 the glaze over the brownies with a rubber spatula and let glaze set.
11. Spread 1/2 the glaze over the bars, and let it set (not harden like most).
12. Cut into bars and serve.

It cost me a quarter!

I'll get it out to you this week. :)
Hey Lorelei,

I was thinking of you while I shopped at TBS last evening. I see that you already have Baree, Son of Kazan. Would you like a hardback (with dust jacket) Luck of the Irish by Ruth Adams Knight?


ps: It's a ULTB, so I had to add it to show you the book.
Hi, fuzzi.

How do you copy images on your iPad with the iOS7 software upgrade? I'm right-clicking and then clicking on Copy Link Location, and then pasting that into the usual
Thanks for pointing that out. That's what I get for copying and pasting. ;)

I appreciate your comments and review on my book, even though you didn't reccomend it I am happy that you took the time to read it.
I will take your comments in context and try to improve.

This was the Stylish amendment that omargosh gave me :

.talktopic .mh {
border-color: #ACC7D9 !important;
background-color: #C7DAE6 !important;
.talktopic .mh.mR {
border-color: #EAE6E5 !important;
background-color: #F5F1F0 !important;

The .mR part was for the colour of READ posts, while the other was for UNREAD posts. I actually found #C7DAE6 was a bit dark for me so I changed it to #CEECF5 to make it a paler blue (or you can Google for html colour codes and set it to whatever you prefer).

I hope it works for you!

Well, you're already on the master list, and I can't add you to the birthday thread because I didn't start it this month. MrsLee did. I cannot edit her posts.
Thank you! I've been staying away from that temptation, as I've failed to read and review the last two I got.
oh sure! post away.
recent pic of me being a smart ass:
Sure! Where and when??

Oh, I didn't realize they were the same book. I read all the Glen Balch books I could find as a child, but it's been years. No worries, I'll just return it to the "book stream!"

I'm not sure if I fixed the covers, but I did add the information that I found at Amazon about the series. Glad to help!
Yes, but it'll take several more hands. Too many people have downloaded the free ebook and don't care about the covers.

I'm not going to suggest such a horrible idea on the open thread you've started, but you can solicit help in Tattered. Give directions on adding particular versions, and I, at least, will Wishlist and vote on which cover should dominate. It's a matter of which cover is used the most.
That's awesome! I'll join the group right now, thanks and God Bless!
What is this group?
yes I have at least one, my library numbers about 300-400 hundred, i got tired of linking books. Thanks for adding me, will add you soon.
Thanks for adding me to your interesting libraries list. Please add me as a connection, if you would like to.
Thank you, fuzzi. Have you read it, or are you thinking about reading it?

I recognized you were trying to be helpful but perhaps it is best to leave that up to my instructors. We are way beyond simple editing of the dark/light in a photo. And I want to look at a number of different ideas before I decide what to do.

Lorelei, I felt quite unhappy when you presumed to edit my photograph. Please do not do that. I am taking a class, and I am doing to my photographs what I want to do to them. They are copyrighted and you have no permission to edit them.
I noticed in a recent post that you used the phrase "my dh" -- I presume that refers to your "dear husband", though it makes me smile to think that it might mean your "designated hitter". :-)

Sorry I didn't reply to your pm, fuzzi, but I wanted to check I have the right book. I'm pretty sure that it is 'The Mysterious Affair at Styles' (worst case, I'll be able to get hold of it, somehow).

fuzzi, thanks!!!!

There are splendid pix of both Talisman and Ceilidh on my profile page, just scroll down.

Robert Dione, who wrote "God Drives a Flying Saucer" was my art teacher in junior high school (Old Saybrook, CT).
Yeah...burning someone at the stake would not be good. LOL!

Thanks for the kind words.

Thanks for the invitation to the Berean Group. I just joined this evening.


I'm one of those Evangelical Christians that the media and secularists love to hate. LOL!!

Well, I guess I would appear like that on the surface. But, I'm a Christian and believer in Jesus Christ as the Son of God who happens to love fiction.

I promise while I'm a member of Library Thing, I will not do any proselytizing to the rest of the group. Hahaha.

I hope that answers your question.

Thanks for asking.


It was a good read. Very eye-opening for me as a believer. I agree with his basic argument about the evangelical church.

Awwwww fuzzi thanks so much -I'll take all the prayers and hugs I can get!!! Carmela
Hi fuzzi-I'm doing ok. Just got over a stomach flu I'm. Seriously trying to make a de t on Mt TBR these days. There's just an ache in my heart and at times it's overwhelming Thanks for asking fuzzi-I appreciate it
Hey fizzi. I just wanted to stop by and say hi. I hope you and your family are well. I noticed you are reading The Last Trail. It is a Trilogy. The other two books are The Spirit of the Border and Betty Zane. I read a few Zane books, although I prefer Louis L'Amour. The Last Trail and The Spirit of the Border are great books though. I read a really good Biography on Zane Grey.

PS I admire you for the way you stand up to the non-believers on this site. We need a Revival in the country.

Take care and God Bless,

Scott B.
Didn't make one 'cause we've never had one. But it's a great idea! I'll make one if you haven't already.
Yes, these are the three I received as well. Thanks. I think I will be reading the Peg Brantley first. Can't wait. Happy New Year!
Thanks for the heads up on The Last Unicorn thread!
You are listed as my Santathing giver. I can't tell if you picked the books or if someone else did. If you did, thanks so much! I am soooo looking forward to reading the Peggy Brantley. Hope you got good books for your Santathing exchange.
Hi fuzzi!
Your name was submitted by a friend for SantaThing and I chose 3 books for you. Now I'm wondering if you received them because I can't find your info on the "Picked" list! Please let me know.
I hope you and your family are enjoying the Christmas holidays!

(aka TheFlamingoReads)
Thanks, fuzzi! Wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas!
Your bird pictures are really cute.

I see that Shutterfly is much nicer now that it used to be. I can't be using two picture sites, though, so I'm still on Flickr (which sounds like the bird anyway!).

My feeder is just being inundated with English sparrows now. I'm not worried about that because I'm trying to get them to use up all the stale black sunflower seeds. Ha!

I did put a birdbath warmer into our birdbath. My three feral cats are very happy about that as their oversize "water dish" won't freeze now. :D

What religion are you?
Many years ago I was busying myself by looking around flea markets. I found a beat up, too small frame with this picture in it in a junk box. I was feeling rather misplaced at this time in my life, uncertain future, topped with no near by family. The asking price was a mere 50 cents. This picture brought me immediate peace, I knew it was meant for me so I brought it home matted and reframed it and found a spot in my bedroom where I'd be sure to see it at the start and close of each day. I was on my own with a 6 & 10 yr old and trying to recover from a suicide in the family . My goodness, I wanted to be that Lamb! I've only seen one other one since that time. My picture is in my living room now. ; ).
Hi fuzzy, After reading your post on LTer's with dogs I went to look at your page for pics of pups . I have cats as well. But I wanted to share we have the same favorite picture of Christ. I have only recently ran in to one other person with this same pic and I shared with her how I came across mine. May I ask how you came to own the same?
Thank you,though we could all see it coming it is still been traumatic & continues to be we feel thankful that he is no longer in pain. We are remembering all the good times we had as kids & later as adults @ the family reunions-especially the crazy baseball games! Thank you again, Bonnie Connel
You're welcome! XX
Hi Lor; Thanks for asking. She's hanging in there. She's eating a bit and definitely more interested in things around her. Not out of the woods, but the vet is more hopeful that she will get there.

How's your little black cat?
Hi fuzzi- some days I am better but other days my loss hits me all over again. Thank you so much for your concern-I appreciate it more than I can say. I try to keep busy which helps. I had root canal this week which was surprisingly almost but not quite pain free. Anyway thanks again fuzzi for your kindness. Carmela

Can't quite tell, but it looks like the Black Capped Chickadee's we have here in S,E Wisconsin year round. Lov em, & Cardinals, Blue Jays and American Goldfinches. My biggest thrill was actually getting to see (fairy close up) an Indigo Bunting. So Beautiful.
Thanks for the prayers and support! They mean more to me than I can say. :)
You are, as I posted, very welcome. I will appreciate the postage when I receive it I am having a great time simplifying my life. Sold a bunch of CDs (which I never played, maybe 2 X a year) yesterday. Got well over $60!

See you around in the threads.
I'm so glad you searched for and found Blitz! I was trying to remember the name of that book myself using google and came upon your search and answer here. Hooray! I must have read that book a dozen times when I was little. :)
You are so very welcome. It is nice to participate in simplifying my life, and yours. Happy Columbus Day.

Sometimes I think folks like lawecon just like to exercise their prowess as a debater. He obviously likes to bother Christians; I still can't understand what he doesn't like about my posts. I guess he doesn't like my choice in books in my library and that I am a professing Christian. Just because I might have a particular book in my library shouldn't make one assume that I believe everything in that book. I like to look at all kinds of ideas and literature and then make up my mind about those ideas. Thanks, for the support; lawecon just has a strange type of attitude and he really doesn't bother me. I will continue to speak out when I like; after all it is America. Some people want to silence Christians of all denominations.
Liked your blurb for APT's BRUCE. Thought I'd read all of the Sunnybank books as a kid, but musta missed that one. Sounds pretty good. Just last year read TREVE for first time. Simple but entertaining. Terhune sustained me from ages 7-11 or thereabouts, as did Kjelgaard, Curwood, O'Brien, Farley, Seton and other writers of animal books. Don't think many kids read any of them anymore. Not sure if many kids even READ anymore. All those distracting electronic gadgets.
I put The Brown Study in the mail today. I looked for Elsie Dinsmore, but I've been too clever by half and couldn't put my hands on it. I'll send it another time. Enjoy Grace!
At least, it's a small state!!
And I'm not sure why you would stop here unless you needed a break half-way between NYC and Miami............
Hi, Fuzzi!
Thanks for the visit - I'm in Lumberton..... Lots of our kids make it to ECU!
I wonder how you're liking *6 Moon*. Tepper is an old favorite of mine, but I've never reread that one... Oh! I see that you reviewed it, so I'll check out the review and greet you over at 75ers.
Hey fuzzi;

Hope my explanation for adding books to the TIOI challenge was clear enough.

Did you see the short story challenge #19? I've been adding stories by the western writer,Dorothy M Johnson. She wrote for magazines like Colliers in the 50's,60's & 70's. I think you'd really like her work. Here's a link for several of the shorts from the book "The Hanging Tree" if you'd like to try them out and match me on the challenge.

ok here is the link:
tell me if it doesnt work

So cute! :)
Hi fuzzi!

I've been away from LT for a few weeks and so I'm having to triage the massive number of unread posts. But I wanted to tell you that I really appreciated your response (post #2) in the "Hope in a nopeless situation" thread. You nailed the idea of hope in prayer spot on. If you're interested in reading some very good meditations on the idea of prayer not just as the "Christmas wish list" but as the way in which we come to listen most attentively to what God wants to tell us, I'd recommend that you read Julian of Norwich's "Revelations of Divine Love" -- she lived in the 14th century and wrote one of the most beautiful meditations on the paradox of Love conquering Sin through the Cross that's ever been written by Christian hands.


I hope you don't mind my friending you--you've been so kind about commenting on my book thread. I just loaded The Baker Street Letters on my Nook and will start reading it while my son is having his teeth cleaned at the dentist's office. :)
It's from a book by James Hogg [The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner], a favorite of mine.
Thank you for following my blog. If you have suggestions or comments they will be very welcome! More fun! Karen (aka maggie1944)

Re. my photo of the leaning kittens -

I am not sure why they are leaning but I noticed yesterday that their breeder is using that picture on her website to advertise Bombay cats so it can't be all bad.
I see that you've just added The Inn of The Sixth Happiness. Great story! I read it as a youngster. I also met Gladys Aylward once. She spoke to a group of young people at Park Street Church in Boston, and I went up and greeted her afterward. She was pretty old and gray by then, but her story was inspiring and she told it with a bright energy that spoke to us. I seem to remember her saying that she'd hated growing up short and dark-haired, but it was a great advantage to her when she went to China because she fit in much better than the typical Westerner.
HI fuzzi,

Long time off librarything....we sold our house and bought a new one. In just 4 short months we completed and moved in to the new place on Friday, June 1st.The whole process was extremely stressful since we had been in our old house for 39 years. Wow, GOD has indeed blessed us with a great downsized house/duplex/townhome and we are in a great neighborhood just 2.3 miles from our son and my husbands parents. I just today got my books out of the boxes in the bonus room over the garage. I'm going to have to order some new bookcases and start organizing them properly. I think this move is indeed in GOD's plan for both me and my husbands future. Isn't HE great!

See ya,

De-clawing is barbarous and is banned in Aussi? And when the $$$'s outweighed the "cuteness factor"... their answer. Put it Down. ie. Dispose of one of 'my' inconvenient possessions.
I do wonder about people like that.
fuzzi: I would love to join up with people who like to talk about Jesus.
Thanks. Though sometimes I feel like a broken record on that issue.
thank you fuzzi- i appreciate it more than i can say- carmela
thank you for your kind words lor- iappreciate it more than i can say- carmela
Thanks, fuzzi. Much appreciated.

God bless
I didn't get any Feb or March, but that was probably a good thing bc I was a bit behind. Catching up quickly tho!
I'm sorry you didn't get your copy! It was pretty good. It laid a framework, someone had said based on a military dog manual, but that was ok because it was structured. It wasn't what I anticipated, but there were a lot of good stories about working dogs all the way back to WWI. I enjoyed reading the book because it took the manual and then talked about the effects of the decisions of the manual and how the dogs and the handlers fare in the process. I would call it a good starting point in looking at the military dog, and would use it to build off of.

Did you get another book recently that you enjoyed? I got "Into the Blue", which was good, and have enjoyed really most of those that have been sent to me.

Thank you for sharing the link to the thread about reading the Bible through in a year. I don't think I'm going to join the discussion. My pleasure in the conversation of shared reading is spoiled when people barge in for nothing but the sake of controversy. With 99% of the world as their soapbox, I don't see why they insist on butting in to ruin a tiny corner of a tiny website with more of the same. Those of you on that thread who respond to them are doing a beautiful job of it.

I enjoyed your comments in this post - - and had those same observations. What struck me was the facts repeated: the king's age & year his reign began, length of reign, mother's name, and these two specific notations about his reign:

Was his reign good or bad:
"he did right in the sight of the Lord" or "he did evil in the sight of the Lord".

And what did he do about the high places:
"only the high places were not taken away" or "he removed the high places" or "he rebuilt the high places".

You quoted, " ... for great is the wrath of the LORD that is kindled against us, because our fathers have not hearkened unto the words of this book, to do according unto all that which is written concerning us." 2 Kings 22:13

"Coincidentally", I was just talking to someone about that verse last weekend. How the book of the law was "found" in the house of the Lord during renovations. It sounded as though the Book was utterly unknown for generations through the reigns of many kings. And then King Josiah actually heard it read, and what an impact it made. It made me wish that the Book could be "found" by our leaders again.

Six months into my front-to-back read of the Bible, I should be around Ecclesiastics by now, but am currently in the middle of 1st Chronicles. I'll need to pick up my pace!

Warm regards,

PS: I LOVE the drawing in your gallery of Jesus holding the lamb. I've been looking for it online, but can't find it with my various search terms. Do you know the artist or name of the picture?

Hutch has tested positive for FIV, but since he's neutered and friendly, could be adopted by a forever mom or dad. I'd take him home if I could...
Hey fuzzi. Have you gotten a pneumonia shot? I do not get sick often but 15 months ago I had pneumonia. I decided to get the pneumonia shot. I have not been sick since. I hope you are well.
Thanks, Fuzzi. I appreciate it. :-D
You made italics!

Your username is pretty cool too.
Hey, you're from North Carolina. Have you read anything by Sarah Addison Allen? Her books are set in North Carolina. I read one of them, called, The Girl Who Chased The Moon, and I thought it was super.
Sending a hug and a prayer your way today.
I am happy to add your "blog" to those that I peruse, from time to time. I hope you will get more comments and feel less lonely!

I know what you mean. I am active on another (unrelated) site that simply feels way more responsive, more like a fellowship, than this one, which still, after nearly 4 months, feels a little cold. The major difference I see is that that site has the equivalent of a "like" button for each post. It doesn't gain you anything--it's just a response. Even if nobody posts an actual reply, if you see three or seven or a dozen "likes," you know it's being read. That makes it feel like you're not addressing an empty room.

I'm much too new here to be proposing changes, and I'd be willing to guess that a feature like this has been considered and rejected for some reason. All I'm saying is that a clickable acknowledgment without the obligation to type a comment has the nice effect of making you feel heard.

Cat TV on the bird channel as we say in our house...
Thank you Fuzzi. I will be back this week:)
Hi fuzzi. I am thinking of joining the Reading you're Bible in a year thread again. What bothers me are people like lawecon and JGL53. You and John are doing a great job dealing with them. I hope you are well.

God Bless. Scott B.
Fuzzi, what is the bible in a year chat site again? I have been out of tune with things for awhile.......... Had several health scares with more biopsies to be done. Also, my computer crashed and it's been out of service for a short while. Also, we are selling our house, so, I had to box up my complete home library ( 38 boxes ) and take to basement until house is sold and we relocate. Sooooooooo, many things have been going on. I would like to again get intune with the Bible in a year group and renew my efforts!

Thanks, fellow north carolinian ........Jane

A quote from somewhere, though I don't remember where. Glad you enjoyed it. :-)
My sentiments exactly. There is anger behind their words. I believe the source is satanic. They are not aware that the powers of darkness are keeping them from seeing the truth. The evil that blinds them is manifesting its anger through their words.
Thank you kindly! I love Francis Schaeffer, and wanted to say something when I saw you had purchased it, but was in a rush to get to work. :)
Thank you. I have missed the fora, even though the resistance and critical spirit of some were getting on my nerves.
She is pretty, isn't she? I'm told that her mother, whom I have not met, is even more so -- the friend who placed our sweetie with us even named the mom-cat Norma Jean.

We also wondered about the number of toes she has. It's only four, but even we had to double-check.

Yes. Yes he is.
Hello. I just realised that I didn't answer your question in GD's last "weekend" thread. What camera do I use? For last week's shot it was a Canon EOS 7D with a 70-200mm L lens attached. That's pretty much my default setup.

Sorry for the delayed response.
I am now on board with the read in a year bible thread. I haven't posted yet because I have had dental wisdom teeth surgery and haven't been on the net recently.

Thank you for the invite to AVBF site. I just registered under the username: lifeinc. Looking forward to studying and discussing the Bible. By the way, the Bible version I use to study from is the KJV.
I received the postcards. Many thanks (Danish: mange tak). They are very beautiful and will fill out a whole closet door. In Greenland we don't have trees, so I especially love the ones with all the trees and greenery. All the post cards have given me ideas for places to go and visit some time
I'm trying to answer your comment which came to my email but I can't find it. Anyway, thank you. I think I will like it here.
Happy new year, and may you have many happy good reads in 2012! - Karen

Great testimony; that would have been a blessing to my heart had I read it when you gave it and it is a blessing now. I know you know, but this is what we Christians have that no body can take away- we have life-changing proof of life-changing moment, when the Life-Changer, saved us. All the naysayers can scoff at Christianity and Jesus Christ, deriding those who have truly been "born-again," but they can't take away our "blessed hope."

By the way, I notice that you enter a lot of young children's books into your library- are these books that you share with grandchildren, or for some other reason?

Take care and God bless until next time,

Your sweet spirit comes through. You keep order in this thread, whether you know it or not.
glad to hear they arrived in time for christmas.
I am in Denmark right now celebrating christmas with my parents, so I will look forward to see the postcards when I am back in Greenland.

Merry christmas or as we say in Danish: Glædelig jul
You are welcome. By the way, I didn't intend on the three posts going on this thread, I thought that I was commenting privately to each of you, but God allowed it to happen the way it did for a reason. God bless and Christmas greetings. Jesus Christ the real reason for the season.

In Christ,

John Tindle
Hi fuzzi. I love your comments on The Benefits of a Fictional Relationship with God.
I agree with you 100%. I wish the Atheists would stay off the Christian Threads. The late DR. James Kennedy wrote a great book on Creation verses Evolution. One of these days, I need to put in my two cents. Take care fuzzi and God Bless!
you can send them the way you prefer
gonna sell mine eventually..
I am mailing the flaggs for you today, so hopefully it won't be too long before you have them
Thanks for the comments. I'm between jobs also (laid off after 27 years), but luckily was able to build up a good library over the years. Good luck to your brother, for both of you.

pm me your address and I will mail the flags for you
Hi fuzzi! Thanks for your comment. I try to avoid these religious discussions on LT, but I get sucked in every time.
PS - I *love* your flowers! I've just started (indoor) gardening myself. I'm single and a student so live in an apartment. Did you just pick up gardening as you went along or would you be able to recommend some good plants/books to get me going? As of now, I have a morning glory, basil, tea roses and some form of succulent which are doing well in pots. :) I fully anticipate the tea roses will die soon though -- they were one of those $2 supermarket buys.
I just wanted to let you know that I finished Homer's Odyssey by Gwen Cooper and I officially recommend it!
Thank you for the care and concern. I'm at home now and doing better. I'll be taking antibiotics for 10 days and it will take awhile to get my strength back.
Thanks very much for the list of Mouse books. Yes, a reissue of the set would be great.
I got dogs of war last week. It was REALLY slow coming. Seems to be a slow publisher, so don't despair yet.
Moonpie, what a great name for a cat!
Glad to have lured you into the John Russell series. I like Alan Furst and these books are much like Furst. You can read them as stand alone's but the series gives you the reasons why all of these people and places are important to the main characters. I hope you like them as much as I did. I have to admit that I am a little bit nervous in making this recommendation because people may not like them as much as I do. Then I would feel bad. But please give them a try. I think they are good.
fuzzi, I popped over to see more animal pics..cute kitty names. Your favorite picture...I have the same one in my bedroom. My leader last year in BSF also had it which we both thought was odd as we've never seen it before. I bought mine at a flea/antique store during a very troubling time and her Mom bought hers at a flea market as well. = )
His name is Glenn. Thank you again, so much! My name is Bonnie. Thanx. 8^)
Thanks fuzzi
Hi fuzzi! Thanks for your comment. I haven't read The Little Minister yet and I'd never even heard of it when I saw it at a library booksale over the weekend. I adore Barrie's Peter Pan, and am interested to try his lesser-known work. Does it have the same clever and humorous narrative voice as PP? I will have to let you know what I think when I read it!
Hi Fuzzi,

I just love anything Jane Austen! It is very hard to judge which is better... Although, my all time favorite will always be P&P. It must have been very hard, indeed, to be an author during Jane's day. I think she would rate much higher than today's authors, simply, because of how far women have come in society. Thanks, for remembering me when you chose your new JA books.

Okay, I commented on Wuthering Heights here and here. It can be rough going, but I think that there is substance in that roughness.

fuzzi, did you ask me to comment on Wuthering Heights somewhere? I thought you had, but then I looked this morning and couldn't find it.

I so agree with your review of Conagher! We see it through the same eyes!
