Oops, missed a day. Happy Read An E-Book Day!
"Ebooks enable you to take the stories and authors you love with you anytime, anywhere. ... Check out an ebook for free from your library and share why you love reading with the hashtag #ebookLove."Machka - Had to laugh at your weather report for Tasmania! We have pretty much the same thing, only it's Hot, Holy Cow Hot, When Will It End, and Fall. But with at least one annual hard freeze long enough to kill anything that isn't protected. Oh, and about the Love List, it's free of charge. Google "Stephen Sandifer My Love List." The legal side of things will differ, of course, but it's still a nice guide for getting the basic facts down.Cathy - I think my gay nephew has benefitted from the fact that we're close. He knows his parents love him, but they struggle with his orientation and I've been able to be more accepting. We're going to a Pride event with him this weekend.Kim - Your post about insurance really hit home. That's where I'm at, too, and it's been hard to come to grips with the fact that I will likely have a shorter life than I might have because I don't have health insurance. The minute one of us has a catastrophic illness, it's all over. That said, there are a lot of things I want to leave behind when I'm gone but a partner in medical bankruptcy isn't one of them. The truth is that when we had insurance, we were spending so much on the premiums that we couldn't even afford basic preventive care. This problem is fixable if we only had the will to fix it, but in this country that's not the case.Rho - Ooh, those tank tops are nice! I always seem to have a hard time finding tanks with straps wide enough to cover my bra straps. (Yes, I know it's fashionable to let it all hang out these days, but you won't find me doing that!) I'm very excited that a Duluth Trading store just opened up a couple of towns over so I can go try on some of their "no-yank tanks."Felicia - So glad your husband's review went well.Pip - The lit-up bicycle is so cute! What an inviting yard!Karen - Awww, Enzo looks so sweet! Give him some scritches for me, please.
If you read, do you use an ebook? I was dubious at first because I love the printed page, but traveling is much easier since I quit having to lug bags of heavy books around! My Nook fits in my purse so I always have something to read when I'm standing in line, etc. And I do regularly check out ebooks from the Central Texas Digital Library.
Motorcycle was being a big poopyhead yesterday and wouldn't start for me. She does not appreciate it when she doesn't get out for a ride often. So she's been on a battery charger overnight and now I'm going out to try again.
