that's pretty cool, I always want to get into a good romance, but find those covers so silly! Read the Outlander series and loved it but after that the few romances I've read I don't really like so much.

Hmmmm, I've been to many crafts shows and the like, and I've never come across "Mermaid Bindery" (!) That's very interesting.

Do you have a web url for her stuff? I'd be interested in seeing her work.

Thanks,

Quote Actually "j" in ASCII, "binary j", if you will.


Of course .... duh ... I indexed off of 65 base 10 .... instead of hex ..
Of course my wife says my epitaph will be:

Hey, Deb. Let's see you name drop! I'd like to know if you know any of my faves.

Okay, let's see. People I can legitimately call friends:

Joan Johnston
Heather Graham Possessere
Linda Anderson (you may not have heard of her. She had a few books out some years ago and if you can get hold of them, they're wonderfu)
Marcia King-Gamble
Carol Stephenson (fairly newly published, only 2 or 3 books out so far, but many more coming!)
Patricia Lewin, aka Patricia Keelyn
Deborah Smith (wonderful Georgia writer!)
Debra Dixon (not writing too much anymore, but very darned good at it when she did)

I'm sure I'm missing a few, but those are the ones that spring readily to mind.

Now, people I've met once or twice, but who probably wouldn't remember me:

Nora Roberts
Jennifer Blake (very sweet and depressingly beautiful!)
Janet Evanovich
LaVyrle Spencer (even exchanged recipes with her once!)
Jayne Ann Krentz
Ann Maxwell (She and her husband led us on a tour of Seattle years ago. Great fun.)

Yes, yes yes!

I told my daughter they should open the bookstores at midnight, just as they did for potter and all of the Mitford fans would line-up. (quite the demographic).

Also to heck with all the debate over Dumbledore's death, what about Father Tim!

Then you need to head to the Charlotte gathering on Oct 22nd!! Jan Karon lives in Blowing Rock, (just a stone's throw from Charlotte). Mitford is pretty much Boone/Blowing Rock area.

I carved with the "A" Orange today for the first time. I did find it a little stiffer and flakier... but it holds detail well and the color is not too terribly blinding. I don't mind using it untill something better comes along.

Yeah, i'm a geek. I do systems engineering and a little software development now and have been a UNIX sysadmin. Before kids, used to work 9-10 hours a day in front of a computer and then come home and "play" on one until late at night. Some people are sick that way. Letterboxing and geocaching get me out of the house! Plus my daughter enjoys finding the geocaches and "stamp geocaches".

I keep reading all these messages about the gathering and wondering if i could swing it. But we're in Durham and it's kind of a long day trip for a kid who needs a nap. And my wife is not into letterboxing, so i don't think she wants to go down and spend the night.

Specifically winter, but any empirical/anecdotal evidence would be appreciated... i'm in the Piedmont of North Carolina, so we don't have as harsh of winters as a lot of people do. I am planning a 7 (or so) box series and most of the stamps look best in multiple colors. So i'm planning to put markers in the boxes instead of stamp pads. All of the markers i have found in letterboxes have worked pretty well. This is better than i can say for the stamp pads i've found in caches, but i have no idea how long each stamp pad / marker has been out there.

Should i expect to have to replace these markers next spring?

SEPTEMBER 26 2005 UPDATE

SPECTRE has established construction activities on Fred’s land for purposes unknown. Station #19 is inaccessible and its condition cannot be determined. There is no reason to believe that the device nor Agent CZ have been compromised, as the construction activities have not approached the area they were left in. Agent QR is still posted at the Western end of SPECTRE's zone of operations, and that's further reason to believe that Agent CZ is alive and well.

Until SPECTRE ceases operations, there won’t be any landmarks to direct you to CZ. But if you really want another feather in your cap, you are welcome to find the device anyway.

Try Moonstruck Madness, Dark Before the Rising Sun and Chance the Winds of Fortune by Laurie McBain (it's a trilogy). I HAD to write a paper on these books in college for a course I was taking on Popular Culture. Reading Romance Novels and Watching Soap Operas for a semester, it was hard work! ;-) I really enjoyed them then, although I haven't read them in years (they are still on my shelf, perhaps I should include them in my current stack of "to read"s)

My mom made the Marmalade Cake. There was a recipe in Victoria Magazine (along with an article about Mitford). It was terrific!

If you like the Mitford books, you should try Big Stone Gap, Big Cherry Holler and Milk Glass Moon by Adriana Trigiani, also set in the Blue Ridge Mountains. (and they have a wonderful recipe for a Chocolate Coca-Cola Cake in them!! )

Also if you like that Blue Ridge Kinda thing...just about anything by Sharyn McCrumb: The Hangman's Beautiful Daughter, She Walks These Hills, The Songcatcher, Ballad of Frankie Silver. They are mostly mysteries, but she is a great story teller.

Other North Carolina Authors (mostly mysteries because that is what I like...) Margaret Maron: her Deborah Knott mysteries. Barbara Neely: Blanche Cleans Up, Blanche on the Lam, Blanche among the Talented Tenth. Chassie West: Killing Kin, Loss of Innocence, Sunrise. Clyde Edgarton: Walking Across Egypt, Raney, Floatplane Notebooks, In Memory of Junior.

I could go on and on and on!

Amanda,

Have you read any Tamar Myers? She writes the Den of Antiquity series (Charleston antique dealer) and also the PennDutch Bed & Breakfast series that has recipes too. She lives close to Charlotte, in Fort Mill, SC and has a most warped sense of humor! (like me). She comes up to PLCMC (library) here in Charlotte sometimes to do special events.

Anyway, I was going to tell you about Thou Shalt Not Grill (one of the Penn Dutch mysteries). WAY funny.

Quote Ah, Portland, Oregon, a city in the northwestern United States halfway between the North Pole and the Equator that is only notable for being the birthplace of Sally Struthers.


Hey! Don't make me have to ban you from AQ. I heard rumors that Danny Glover even lives in the Portland area. *nodding* =)

PS. Portland is WAY north of the 45th parallel. Salem gets that distinction of between halfway between the North Pole and equator! =P

Quote I can no longer get Mastercarve and my other choices are Speedystamp and Speedycut. Any opinions on these two?


Speedy-Stamp is good, but stay away from that Speedy-Cut! That freak of nature should never have seen the light of day! It crumbles and falls apart easier than anything else I've ever tried.

Speedy-Stamp: Good
Speedy-Cut: Very, very bad (Though, I will admit, if you just want to practice carving some throw-away stamps, it might be useful since it is cheaper than Speedy-Stamp. Never leave a Speedy-Cut stamp in a letterbox, though, it won't last very long at all.)
