Hi, Robb

I'm Avid Reader Liz and I usually lurk on this forum. I don't post as often as I used to because for some reason I get around to reading the posts so late that everyone has gone to bed before I've finished. I do try to keep up with the posts, but have missed a few when I get 3 or 4 days behind.

Thanks to all the starters and posters who keep this thread going. I do so enjoy reading about everyone's children, grandchildren, pets, etc. I pray for all of you who are in pain, either physical or emotional and for those who have suffered such great losses due to hurricanes, noreasters, fires, floods, etc.

I miss so many of our old friends who quit posting and hope they are well. I'm so glad that Rahoo Tigaroo has been posting some on the Expatriates thread. Nospin haven't seen you post lately. Hope all is well. Elizabeth SH, hope you have managed to move to a heated, dry home or apartment now and begun to recover somewhat.

Since it is already Friday, will paste this into tomorrow's thread also.

Night all.


ETA: Friday's thread not started yet so won't be pasting this post to it for now.

@ Leonard Hoping they find the source of your pain soon. I think not knowing just makes the pain worse.

Ah yes, why the chocolate chips. Turns out that nick is quite the cook. We always told him that if astrophysics didn't work out he could become a pastry chef.
When he was at CalTech he would do what all college kids do - stay up at night. His room was close to the kitchen and at 1 or 2 am he would bake cookies. Can you imagine the smell? Then he would give them away.

Well, there is avid reader, avid reader Anita, and I thought avid reader Liz.
Just once or twice. I skim a bit over there looking for possible recipes. Sometimes one can get a bit inundated under posts.

Does Stanley shed. His hair looks like a poodles and they do not shed. I have a Border Collie and a lab/retriver mix and even the groomer is amazed at how much hair the lab/retriver has. Right now I am just keeping the vac out so I can keep up with her hair. I just put the dust mop head into the washer to wash it, that was after I used the vac on it to pull hte dog hair off.
Things go well here. Husband is doing fine, I just make sure he goes and rests when he needs to. Doctor had me go off anti-depressant med for 3 months. It was not good so I am now back on them. I had forgotten how it felt to be so depressed.

I too enjoyed your opening Robb. I love learning about places I'll never be able to see. Had no idea that the South Pole was so different from the North Pole. Your nephew sounds like a really interesting guy and so good looking too. Happy Birthday to Nick.

I'm pretty sure that the Avid Reader who posts in the kitchen is a different one from the one who sometimes posts here. I believe Avid Reader Anita posts in the Kitchen and Avid Reader Liz posts here.

Leo- I was sorry to see you've been under the weather again. I hope you get answers soon and the fix is an easy one.

I know it's late-ish, but I have to post at least a few kinlib picks :-):

Bosom Bodies (Mina's Adventures)- Romantic Suspense
Italian-born Mina Calvi has a way of finding trouble, but when she offers to help a friend by moonlighting at Bosom Bodies restaurant, it's trouble that finds her. The body of the restaurant manager is discovered on the beach, a hit and run victim, and Mina's VW Bug is impounded as the vehicle used in the crime. Stunned beyond belief, Mina is suddenly up to her ears in assault, betrayal, smuggling and murder. Now the police are watching her. The mob is targeting her. And who comes riding to her rescue on a metal steed-none other than the cook at Bosom Bodies, the mysterious Diego. Is he more than a bad cook and a good lover? Is he protecting her, or setting her up? Scared, clueless and on her own, Mina struggles to reclaim her life and stay two steps ahead of those stalking her, but it's a treacherous path and she's losing ground fast.

Operation Bonnet: A Novel- Contemporary Fiction
Twenty-year-old Nellie Monroe has a restless brilliance that makes her a bit of an odd duck. She wants to be a private investigator, even though her tiny hometown offers no hope of clients.
Until she meets Amos Shetler, an Amish dropout carrying a torch for the girl he left behind. So Nellie straps on her bonnet and goes undercover to get the dish.
But though she's brainy, Nellie is clueless when it comes to real life and real relationships. Soon she's alienated her best friend, angered her college professor, and botched her case. Operation Bonnet is a comedy of errors, a surprising take on love, and a story of grace.

The Paper Doll Museum (Taylor Blake Paranormal Mystery)- Paranormal Mystery
Retired, divorced and addicted to eggplant, Taylor Blake is seeing things. That aren't there. Determined to forestall the inevitable trip to a locked facility, she skillfully hides the fact that her life has become a horror movie. But at a club dance, an octogenarian stalker in a cowboy costume leaves her an invitation to... The Paper Doll Museum.
There Taylor's worst fears are subsumed in a reality beyond imagining. She learns that she isn't crazy. She's a Revenant, one of a new and peculiar group of people who have survived the reproductive years only to regain the magical perceptions of childhood. But the magic is accompanied by a reappearance of childhood's dark side as well, a ghoul now possessed of mature and horrific power. There really is something terrible hiding in the dark. There always was. Fortunately, Taylor Blake can kick ass.
It's a good thing, because something ancient and hideous threatens the very scaffolding of human life. Something only Revenants can see. And something only Revenants can fight. Assuming they get their act together before it's too late.

The Colony (Jim Jovian mystery)- Yellow Banner for me previously gotten on May 12, 2012

Tales from the Pantry: Random Rants & Musings of a Stay-at-home Mom- Motherhood/Humor
"Tales from the Pantry: Random Rants & Musings of a Stay-at-home Mom" is a collection of witty, funny, and sometimes gut wrenching stories told by a 40-something mother of two small children. Based upon the popular blog `Don't Make Me Count to Three!', Shari Owen Brown uses humor to navigate the daily slings and arrows of motherhood. Many parents can relate to the often unspoken challenges of child rearing. And for those who have yet to have children...consider yourself warned!
Shari found herself the last of her friends to have children and was then SHOCKED to discover all of the lies she had been told! Why hadn't anybody mentioned these things before?!! It was like a secret club of parents who dared not tell the truth or else none of their friends would have children, leaving them all alone in their own private nightmare!
Shari blows the lid off of these unspoken challenges & discusses daily life in a funny and entertaining way that still manages to speak the truth. It is a great outlet for parents to laugh at themselves through Shari, and realize that they are not alone or crazy (well, maybe just a little!) for feeling the way that they do.

The Kelvin Scale- Mystery
Dr Brian Morgan has hit rock bottom. His career and his marriage are in tatters, and unpaid bills are mounting.
But a change in fortune befalls Morgan when he learns that a group of people calling themselves CI Agents has been investigating him with the intention of offering him a special job within a secret establishment. Morgan tentatively accepts the job and is introduced to ELF, the Extended Life Foundation. He soon realises, however, that the company is stymied by a veil of secrecy and he begins to unravel the layers of ELF's deception. Then he makes a startling discovery - one that risks his job, his sanity, and even his life.

Persephone Cole and the Christmas Killings Conundrum, a Books We Love Holiday Mystery- Mystery
In 1942, no one heard of a female private investigator. No one, but Persephone Cole, that is. She just might be New York City's first female PI, blazing a trail for all other lady dicks to follow. What Percy has in common with gumshoes like Sam Spade, Phillip Marlow, and Dick Tracy is a hardboiled, take-no-prisoners attitude. The difference? Our sleuth has a wicked sense of humor, lives on the lower east side with her zany family, and is the mother of an eight-year old son, the child who gives her life meaning. At five foot eleven inches tall and a full-figured gal, she has a penchant for pistachio nuts, Marlene Dietrich pants suits, and tops her flaming red hair with men's fedora hats. Using her noodle and a 1918 German Mauser pistol to get the job done, World War II's Persephone Cole finds her holiday cheer in solving crimes of the most deadly kind - murder.
In late December, 1942, Persephone (Percy) Cole, one of Manhattan's first female PIs, has been hired to find out who killed a Santa Land elf and left the body in the storefront window of a swank 5th Avenue jewelry store. Was it the spoiled heiress whose big buck handbag was found on the scene? Or was it the rat who broke out of the big house to settle a score? Shortly after, the corpse of the Christmas Angel is discovered stuffed in Mrs. Santa's workshop. Will Santa Claus be next? With a penchant for Marlene Dietrich suits, pistachio nuts and fedora hats, this working mother finds diamonds to the left of her, diamonds to the right, and skullduggery aplenty. Armed with her noodle and a WW I German Mauser, Percy is determined to solve these crimes or it just might be the 'kiss off' for Christmas.
Someone's out to stop the Broadway play, but Private Investigator, Persephone Cole, is bound and determined to find out who. After all, the show must go on. Ms Haven weaves a tale of suspense and humor with her new character. A must read! Roseanne Dowell, author.
Don't miss book one in this series, Persephone Cole and the Halloween Curse, now available (I have this one too)

True crime writer and Blue Heron Beach's favorite son, Vince Tremoni, comes home to contemplate the gloomy forecast of his writing career--which took a tragic and unexpected turn thanks to a fan-turned-serial killer. Now, with his future on hold, the last thing he needs is a beautiful widow complicating his thoughts and reminding him that there's more to life than his flagging career.
But when Jillene and Vince find themselves tangled up in an unplanned summer fling, can either of them deny there's more to what they're feeling than a casual affair? Suddenly coffee's not the only thing heating up at Blue Heron Beach!

Where I am on Vancouver Island is quite a temperate spot, although we get the winds from off the water.

When I lived in Vancouver, we were affected by Bellingham's weather.

Best wishes for a speedy recovery.
