  • Magda K: I already sent you an email 3 days ago. Maybe I sent it wrong. I find your program very complicated. Now I know Why I stopped login in the last time. I figured I give it another try, because I like the site, and the people. I am trying hard.

MarsGal - I like Maud's paintings also. The ones shown look like book illustrations, or maybe greeting cards?  I especially like the house!  I've always been fascinated with folk art, and would like to see more of her work. Too bad you can't go to Halifax with your sisters . . . sounds like a great vacation destination.

We went to CR after my haircut and had a nice day.  I was hoping to find shoe polish for a pair of shoes I have that are kind of a "saddle" color.  Finding shoe polish is turning into a marathon thing.  The shoe repair guy who used to be at the mall is long gone.  I tried the shoe store in town...they have black and dark brown.  I guess I'll try online.

Cold here and they're saying maybe some snow.  UGH.

Darlene...The easier way may be to just put the code in.  The code shows only in the box when you're posting,  not when you click Post and the post shows to the rest of us.  Just don't put any spaces in the coding below.  [I did so you can see the coding]

[ color=green] Put here what you want to be green. When you're at the end of what you want to be green (Or whatever color you put after the =) put the end tag  [ /color]

After you click post, it will show as:

Put here what you want to be green. When you're at the end of what you want to be green (Or whatever color you put after the =) put the end tag 

IF you want it to be bold, as Marilyn suggested, do this:

[ b][ color=green] Put here what you want to be green. When you're at the end of what you want to be green (Or whatever color you put after the =) put the end tag  [ /color][/ b]

It's vital to do the codes in reverse order at the end. 

You'll then have

Put here what you want to be green. When you're at the end of what you want to be green (Or whatever color you put after the =) put the end tag

Marilyne, thanks for the recommendation.  I'll check it out.  I haven't painted in about 5+ years, but I still love art.  I read very slowly now, so it might be a while.  ;)

That reminds  me of the movie Who Killed Karen Silkwood.   There was another one earlier about a woman who campaigned against her employers because of unsafe working conditions.  It's scary and you have to think that all of our modern miracle products are like a Pandora's Box, and the lid is open and no turning back.

My book review is here.

Just finished reading “the Radium Girls: The Dark Story of America’s Shining Women” by Kate Moore.  A most interesting story that I had to take in stages.  I would get so angry at the lack of humanity in the company and their lying that I would put it aside a day.  Then I would go back to the story and marvel at the brave women who fought for their rights ‘though they were suffering terribly.  The book is well sourced and had photos and end notes.  Below is a short blurb.

“Meanwhile, hundreds of girls toil amidst the glowing dust of the radium-dial factories. The glittering chemical covers their bodies from head to toe; they light up the night like industrious fireflies. With such a coveted job, these "shining girls" are the luckiest alive — until they begin to fall mysteriously ill.”

Good afternoon, waiting for another Nor's easter. the 4th one, and I have a doctors appointment , which my nurse wants me to keep, as my heart rate is so slow.

Larry, Beautiful story. I like to see how many stores around here do hire the mentally  challenge. At Stop $ Shop or supermarket, they have two young men. One brings in the carts and cleans the shelves and the other one is a packer. I always make a point of speaking to him.

MaryAnn, I generally have dry cereal once a week with my banana, I use half and half no fat. Other wise I use skin milk.

I have to wonder what keeps HGTV going with those flip house shows   They are so similar and who want their home to be just,like everyone else's with "open concept and an island in the kitchen". The open concept is nice in way but my experience #for what it's worth) is that there is no place for quiet conversation with everything in one big space.  When the Family is all together it's bedlam.  I sound like a crabby old lady! :(   When I am alone I usually have the Easy Listening music on low and just read.  I did enjoy the Alaskan shows with Al but even those were reruns many times.
   The book I mentioned earlier called Crossroads Cafe is turning out to pretty good.  It is a large paperback and quite dog eared...well read!😏  I'll see if there is a review that I can post for your information.

maryz - In case you happen to look in: If I remember correctly, you're an artist . . . so I think you might enjoy the book I recommended a couple of days ago, called Vanessa and Her Sister, by Priya Parmar.  Vanessa, is Vanessa Bell, artist/painter, and her sister is writer, Virginia Woolf.  It's historical fiction, but based on true facts, and real people.  The story revolves around The Bloomsbury Group, a gathering of well known (real) London artists, writers and intellectuals, in the early years of the 20th Century.  All wealthy and talented, and living what was then called the "Bohemian" life, in London.  Fascinating reading!

FlaJean - I'm also getting tired of the HGTV shows. Some that I really liked for a long time, have become annoying and repetitious.  I wish they would stop all the endless renovation shows!  Too many of them, and they're all alike!  The only shows we enjoy now are the ones that we record in the middle of the night, that are not shown here in prime time - Log Cabin Living, Buying Alaska, and one that takes place in Montana. (can't remember the title?) Some the "buying the beach" shows I still like, because I love seeing the various beaches around the US, Bahamas and other places.
