Re the faq thing does it really matter? A faq an faq is small stuff and what are we supposed to do? Not sweat the small stuff

Let me try it again, maybe I did something wrong.

Tyger, I figure on average, I take 10 books a day. I like a lot of genres, but won't read short stories, novellas, horror, vampires, zombies, etc.
Once in awhile a romance especially if it is funny.
I saw all The Girl movies and LOVED them. I hear the books are as good.
I come here for the coffee and donuts ;->

You will never have a big enough kitchen. We built our own house and everyone marvels at how big my kitchen is. It is very simple but big but I still have to store some of my kitchen items downstairs. One wall is a bookshelf with cookbooks and more cookbooks downstairs. I have a bare wall, that has a hutch against it, and I am thinking about putting in more cabinets. I would also put in a lower counter there. I am short and have an old mission desk against the island that I use to do stuff such as mixing, chopping etc.
By the way I sent for the Jewish bread book, I am determined to be able to make good bread and understand tabs in a computer.

Keenquilter, can you send Becky an invite as well? I sent it but she hasn't gotten it yet so I'm worried I did something wrong.

Hi everyone!! My company left this morning. I think I missed a lot of good books yesterday. My little granddaughter likes me to play with her when they come for a visit. I was sad to see her leave but I will visit her at the end of this month. I wish she lived closer.

Thanks babel for getting the thread started this morning and all the people that helped.

@Nospin and Grandma, I just read about the dvf following you around from thread to thread. I think someone must have a very sad life if they spend their time writing programs just for the purpose of dvf people that they don't agree with. It kinda reminds me of my little 5 year old granddaughter and what happens when she doesn't get her way. I guess it is the person who is dvf's way of throwing themselves down on the floor and having a tantrum.

Someone mentioned that they can't find all of their books. I am having the same problem, everything I check says I have a different number. Shelfari says I have 2324, my kindle says 2263 and says all books 2328. I wish I knew just how many I do have. I am going to check and make sure I have the ones I paid for...I would hate to lose those.

One of the books I had on my wish list came up free today Elysium (Chronicles of the Last Herald). I am so glad I signed up for eReader and imported my wish list. This is my 3rd book to come up free this week.

Becky, I tried to leave you a note to follow me, now that I am following you, if the Invite from Angie doesn;t work out.

And I am very, very sad today. Up til today, I have been able to rest securely on my laurels as the genre slut who will click anything, and who always took more books than anyone - well, except for isanythingopen, but she grabs kids books too....but now - I have to be very, very afraid - because I only picked up 16 books yesterday. 16!!! on a day where other, more restrained, more selective folks were clicking 50, and 100, and 165?

I feel like such an's like I went to Walmart's Black Friday sale on time midnight Thursday, and didn't even go in the store. (off to wallow in shame...)

Today you can get hold of a wonderful crime book by Ray Banks, one of the best British writers around. The rubber stamp is that it comes from Blasted Heath.

It's Dead Money.

Enjoy and Happy Easter.

I'm trying to recruit Melissa in our group but I did warn her to go slowly. But I think once she reads one of each genre she will be hooked. <Muahahahahahaha> Off to look for more victims.

Grandma says:
You're exactly right Panger - I will never have a big enough kitchen. I'm a bit on the short side myself. I have a sturdy folding table I use for such things. You'll make good bread soon - it is all in your fingers. As far as understanding tabs goes, what don't you understand?

Hi everyone. Since you guys always have lots of information, I have a question that has nothing to do with books. How do you get pepto bismal bright pink stains off a white fluffy stubborn Pomeranian with tummy troubles? Nothing toxic please.

Yikes! 211 posts - I've been too busy to check the thread earlier!

I can add *Yo beer boy" & *easy peasy* to the FAQ if someone will supply a definition. ;)

Ketta, the "all items" on the MYK page includes any personal documents, "active content" if you've 1-clicked on any of those, as well as Audible audiobooks if your Audible and Amazon accounts are linked (mine are). Purchased paper books aren't included, though, only electronic. Also, if you have deleted any books from the MYK page, they might still show up on your other collections, so that might explain part of the difference. Besides, I know how many books you have: A LOT! (Once you've counted past all your fingers and all your toes, does it really matter?)

Greetings Willow,

I just walked into the house after a 4-day road trip, your message was the first one I read and I have got to say that your question seriously made me laugh out loud!

If there is a contest for nominations of the most unusual question ever asked in a book thread - believe me - you will have my vote/ nomination!

As far as an answer, I really can't help you there. My dog is basically black, so if there are any stains I don't know it.

I didn't mean to laugh, but after the long endless road trip it just struck me, I needed a good laugh, sorry but thanks.

With the wealth of knowledge from these threads I am sure there will be useable suggestions.

For me, I am off to cut my much-too-deep grass.

Good luck

links to look at...
The Last Time mystery; the author writes a historical series set in New Orleans in the early 1900's that I love; one review says this doesn't measure up to those, but for free, worth giving a chance

Beyond These Walls urban fantasy, liked the description, a little scared of the review, "Like Janet Evanovich on Pixie dust"

Freud's Revenge mystery, I'm not big on serials and psychopaths, but will try this..." In her debut novel, psychotherapist Adams explores the world she knows best and injects it with a dose of cold-blooded murder. On Monday morning, things are business as usual at Seaside Mental Health Clinic, but by Tuesday its staff and patients are thrust into a world of anonymous threats, inter-colleague sexual liaisons, unmedicated psychotics and a brutal ritualistic murder."

Dog Quirks and Behavior Solutions what it says, case studies to help with doggies

The Blue Pen liked the cover

The Five-Day Dig romantic comedy, "An invitation to translate inscriptions at a mysterious temple complex near Pompeii is a dream for classics prof Winnie Price-except the dig is for a cheesy TV show. "

Heather's Big Adventure fantasy,YA, it sounds fluffy - occasionally I need fluffy

I walked away from A Hidden Moon, set in Asia, dealing with investment and banking, woman's husband dies and leaves her in a mess, and The Brotherhood, vampire monks, but may go back.....

Grandma says:
@willow - ROFL :) You might consider dying the rest of her HAHAHA. Seriously, if it were fabric I would tell you to wet it down with rubbing alcohol, cover with a cloth like a man's handkerchief and scrape with a spoon but that won't do for stain on the movable hoof. Let me think on it . . .

TerryInTexas says:
oh, geez. For the future, may I recommend the peptobismol pills? 1/3 tablet for Pommies running 6-8 lbs........(says owner of Pommie, also with long time tummy troubles during allergy season)

Baby shampoo? or perhaps a special whitening shampoo? Maybe a paste of baking soda and water, or distilled vinegar and water......then again, perhaps a trim :)

@ Becky - NoSpin keeps a keen eye on this thread and she has the ability to issue a Shelfari invitation to you Becky. I am sure she will see your post or I will remind her when I next see her here.

Thanks for the help. I knew you guys know lots of information. She is cute with her pink face. I like the vinegar suggestion and will try that first when her tummy settles down. The vet told me that the pepto pills do not work well In dogs, but TerryinTexas, you have had better luck? BTW I live near Houston.

Oooh, I want an upvote bot!

Up to 220 posts and I'm still only on page 6 - but haven't seen anything irresistible yet that I didn't already have so that's good. I posted a review a while ago for Ding Dong the Diva's Dead if anyone is interested.

Howdy, neighbor! (waving the direction of I-45 south from Dallas area)

warning: graphic pet details ahead

Well, I have had good luck with it. My boy has respiratory allergies, and the drainage overnight in an empty tummy would make him throw up mucus in the morning; if I don't stop it, it goes into diarrhea, and takes a shot of citedine (spelling) and other drugs to calm things down, along with the $150 bill, and a few days before he eats normally again....if I hit him with the pepto pill the minute he doesn't want to eat, it works 99% of the time. And getting a sensitive tummy biscuit (Natural Choice I think) before bedtime now helps prevent the upset tummy too. We've done pink antibiotic liquid before, and he does end up wearing some of it despite my best efforts.

I don't know that anyone has the authority to say what is "officially" right. It's not like language has a definitive source anyway. There might be regional differences as well - I've never heard anyone pronounce the F-A-Q, it's always been "fak" (remembering NOT to include a c).

I'm currently reading a book I got from the Baen Free Library, Mutineer's Moon. Don't know if I'll finish it, it's starting as another mysterious-aliens-threatening-Earth-good-aliens-want-to-help-humans-defend tale, and those don't generally hold my interest.

I lived in cities all my life until we moved to Wyoming. I had to revamp my approach to nursing; in Houston and Dallas, I never ran into my patients in WalMart and my doctors in the grocery store. Nor did I ever have a former patient tell me, in detail, about the progress of her fight against vaginal cancer while people walked around us. <g> I've lived in this town of 50,000 since 1997 now, and even driving to Fort Collins (population around 250K) is a nightmare. I'm spoiled!

I've given up on the RAOK thread - hardly anything there is RAOK-related any more.
