@TerryInTexas that was a type of mithai or Barfi. They have as many kinds of that as we do our fudge, most of them are either plain, pistachio, cashew, almond or coconut. When I go home I always have to take some for some of the relatives in the US. A couple of times I've gone home there would be a wedding coming up. I have been known to carry 70 lbs of mithai. Luckily the Chicago air transport are very used to people coming from India carrying mithai. I very rarely even have to try and explain what it is in English.

I enjoyed your mention of Diwali today; for many years I worked with a group of Indian female engineers, who always invites me to their Diwali luncheon. The highest cooking complement I think I have ever received was one year when i git brave and brought some chickpea dip I had seasoned with masala and various other spices to taste. They all had some, and one of them gave me a hard look, took another swipe of dip and said, "if I didn't know you, I would swear an Indian woman made this." Lol. I dont remeber the name, but loved the slightly dry milk based cream colored square cut sweet sort of like fudge with silver foil on top, maybe pistachios? They always brought some back from home visits for me. All work different places now.

Robb I can beat that--have a teenager call you at work and start with "nobody was shot, really mom nobody was hurt and I have already patched the hole in the wall," Needless closed shop, got in car, and too old to kill but grounded until he married.

Mary Ann---I can laugh about it now.

@Sandy--you should immedfiately!! Do you have a Home Depot--They will rekey your locks and you can cut new keys instead of new locks aor a locksmith.

Next time your neighbor is in yard, wander over and say something along the lines of my camera was stolen out of my car, and now my purse also. Got the purse back, but not camera. Have you seen anybody hanging around the yard or driveway??? Accompany this with a hard look. A friend saw my purse being thrown out of a car and she said she could recognize the car. Might shake them up.

This afternoon I had to leave the house to check on my niece (who is sick), drop something off at a friends, and pick up nephew at school. Hubby always calls when he gets off work. He only knew about nephew pick up and he would worry something was wrong if I wasn't around.

So I send him a text message to his phone from my email. He decided to send a text back. Now, 1) This is just a basic, small phone with a regular keypad, 2) He has very large hands and just dialing can be difficult, 3) He's never sent a text before. This is the message I got: "Gig hi". Now what did he mean by that? Was he saying hi to me, asking me to "party", or had he "partied" while at work?

Turns out he was trying to say: "Got your message". He just had a little trouble with the buttons and knowing how it all worked. Son has now given him a tutorial and we'll see if the next message makes a bit more sense.

Just a couple quick kinlib picks so a full day doesn't pass with none from me:

Maid for Murder: Deadly Business (Book 1)- Mystery
Bailey inherits her grandfather's business, Maid For You, but cleaning up dead body parts wasn't part of the job description. Bailey hopes to wipe out crime with the help of Nate, her computer hacker assistant, despite protests of their involvement in the case from Detective Max Wellington.
When Bailey catches the culprits arranging to dispose of another body, she's out to help the two of them dig their own grave and if she's lucky, Detective Max Wellington will keep them from arranging her funeral.

The Selkie Enchantress (Seal Island Trilogy, Book 2)- Fantasy (I have book 1)
In this modern-day fairy tale romance, Irish islander, Caitlin Conner, has been in love with professor of Irish folklore, Liam O'Sullivan, for as long as she can remember. But just when he's starting to look at her as more than a friend, a mysterious woman arrives on Seal Island and captures his heart. As Caitlin discovers the truth behind the woman's lies, she realizes Liam is trapped in a dangerous enchantment and the only way to break the spell is to uncover a secret Irish fairy tale that has remained hidden for hundreds of years. But when the petals of a white rose grown in winter start to fall, the legend is set in motion. And Caitlin must find a way to change the ending before the last petal falls.

And Still, She Wept- Police Procedural (Yellow Banner previously taken book for me.) IF you don't have this book yet, I heavily recommend you GRAB IT!!!
New York Detective Frank Reilly is a man on a mission. After having lost his beloved wife to cancer, he is drawn back from the brink of an emotional abyss by the murder of a teenage girl who looks just like her. With nothing else left to assuage his guilt, he throws himself into the investigation with every ounce of passion still left inside him. But with little evidence to go on, the case quickly grows cold.
When another victim is killed in exactly the same manner over five hundred miles away, Reilly knows that he must act immediately. Going against the advice of his superiors, he flies to North Carolina to continue his hunt for the sadistic killer. Reilly knows that his only hope of success is to convince the Sheriff of Camden County that each of their crimes is connected. To his relief, Claire Stiles immediately recognizes the undeniable similarities between them both. Fueled by their furious and unrelenting desire to find the murderer, they work together day and night. Unexpectedly, however, they also find themselves growing closer in the process. This new-found friendship helps Reilly begin to heal his hidden wounds, yet it also causes Claire's dark and violent past to be once again dragged into the light.
With the help of two FBI profilers, Claire and Reilly leave no stone unturned in their hunt for the serial killer. In order to understand what tenuous link binds all of the victims together, they end up having to delve into the nearly-forgotten details of an unsolved murder from over a decade ago. Yet when another girl is abducted, Claire and Reilly must also put their own lives on the line in order to catch the madman; before it's too late.

Shaman, Healer, Heretic (Olivia Lawson Techno-Shaman)- Contemporary Fiction
Even for a techno-shaman, a kachina in the bedroom isn't exactly part of the drill. When Olivia Lawson wakes to find one towering over her, she panics. A Hopi god visiting the real world isn't just wrong-it's impossible.
Or is it?
Soon Olivia learns that the kachina is the least of her worries. As she struggles to save her clients, clashes with other shamans, and fends off the attacks of real-world vigilantes, Olivia finds herself in the destructive path of a malevolent ancient force intent on leaving the spiritual realm to conquer this one.
Left with few options, Olivia is forced to defy centuries of shaman prohibitions. As she and her allies risk everything in their bid for survival, Olivia ultimately learns that the rules are there for a reason and that breaking them has a terrible cost.

That's my picks through book #54.

KY Bk Addict- When you sort by books with price drops the free ones always seem to be listed first I've found.

PS- this one price drop on my list today cracked me up:
Price dropped by $0.01 (was $8.00 when added)
Um thanks I guess, but I'll still wait...

We are thinking of taking out stock in the company.
We usually buy 2 or 3 bags. Twenty mine walk to the nearest one. And 3 others are on our various errand routes.

Edited because Alice (the tablet) can't always spell.
