Sunday Post

Hi everyone! Another Sunday has arrived and it’s Mother’s Day. Hope that you all have a wonderful Mother’s Day. Rosefire and I had pizza and ice cream cake for dinner as a treat. Rosefire is now reading Under Gemini by Rosamunde Pilcher and I’m still reading The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe.

Thank you to everyone who left comments, Amy C. can’t believe I still have a VCR. Yes, I do Amy, although I watch mostly DVDs now. See you later!

A Little Off Topic

Hi everybody I just wanted to ask you all a question: How do you trade VHS tapes online? I’ve tried to find a website and I can’t – they trade DVDs, CDs, Apparel or Makeup, but no VHS tapes. I just want to get rid of a lot of tapes, not for money or anything. I have trouble getting to my library so mailing them out to someone would be easier for me. Any ideas?

Sunday Post

Hi Everybody! This week we had a visit from a friend from Cape Cod. She was a friend of my parents who worked at their Irish restaurant on the Cape many years ago and we’ve stayed friends ever since. Anyway, she came and spent Thursday night with us – we went and had dinner in the mall and saw The Last Song with Miley Cyrus together. The movie was good – I cried all the way through 🙂 There was hardly anyone there, though. Nicholas Sparks wrote the book.

I changed my layout a couple of weeks ago because I was having troubles with my other one. Thank you everyone for commenting on it. See you next week.

Hi everybody. It has been very busy for me this week. Rosefire finished her book on Saturday; she enjoyed it. Look for the review tomorrow. I’m going to start reading The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe tomorrow as well. Thank you to everyone who left comments, most of them were rejected though because they were anonymus.

To China, who wanted to know why Voices in Summer by Rosamunde Pilcher wasn’t selling so well; Rosefire doesn’t know but loved the book anyway. She wishes that it would sell well though.
