   Gram77 posted on Coffee Klatch  Finally! Got Facebook up and running and now I can see the grandkids every day. What a treat.

   Balogreene  I joined FaceBook cause people at work posted pix of their grandkids, my sister's kids were on it, my cousin and his kids were on it. I've added more people from work too. On it, I learned my 90+ aunt had a stroke, and my "aunt" died, I've seen kids hundreds of miles away grow.

I don't get political, or religious, even though I'd like to. I try not to offend most people, cause they are the ones I want to keep in touch with. Relatives especially. It has it's cons, but, for me, contact with family is the pro.

   Gram77 posted on Coffee Klatch  It is 4:58 on Wednesday morning. I'm well into the book Unbroken and am forcing myself to go to bed or I'll walk into furniture at daylight. Hillenbrand is a magnificent writer who makes everything come to life. How I wish there would never be another war.

   Balogreene  Come on Gram, it's worth reading (but, it took me a few sessions ). Just don't hurt yourself in the process.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  What a mess in California! Do we have L-Dotters out there? Prayers are needed, big time.

   Surfhut  Thanks for the prayers, Gram. Quite a few L-Dotters live in California. Hope Timber Queen, SoCalGal and all other California L-Dotters are safe. I lived in SoCal for decades. My son lives in Berkeley. Thankfully, my dear son and friends are safe.

I've seen a lot of mud and rock slides, but nothing like the rock slides I'm seeing from Camarillo. The rainy season for California is just starting. Please keep praying!

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Finally....I have started Unbroken. I can assure you all nothing is going to get done around the house because there is no putting this book down for something else!

   Gram77 posted on Suggested Reading  Question: I was given a Nook and lots of books I look for are sometimes 3-4 years old and the Nook just gives me a message that it's not available. It there a limit as to how old a book can be?

   StormCnter  Gram, I don't know. I have no experience with the e-readers.

   Balogreene  Gram, I didn't think so. I love to get the classics (have a complete Charles Dickens on my Kindle ). One search I do (for my Kindle ) is only for e-books. Many books are still paper only. You can check a box, saying you want it to be made available electronically.

Go here, and sign up for e-mails: www.bookbub.com
You sign up for the kind of books you like, and what electronic platform you have. I have a Kindle, but have iBooks and Nook on my iPad. Most titles they send out are less than $3, some are free.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  Good morning to everyone. I'm up early getting ready to go to work. Just thought I would mention something about this date that I will always remember, this date and of course 9-11. I was 9 when Pearl Harbor was bombed and I didn't fully understand what was ahead for us but I knew something was terribly wrong because I could never remember a Sunday that we didn't go to church. Everyone sat around the radio, no one talking to each other, just listening, and sometimes shaking their heads. Now, today, I still include those people who were taken from us in my prayers.

   Gram77  I did, but, I found that I missed the people and the interaction. My home is small and hubby and I don't make much of a mess. I believe that my mind was getting lazy and I was sitting too much and looking at way too much TV. I'm blessed with good genes so once again I spend several days "out among 'em".

   BirdsNest  Good for you, Gram. So many folks retire and waste away allowing their minds to fade. Good for you to be out among people for your good and theirs. As long as you enjoy the work you should do it.

   Gram77 posted on Movies & Reviews  I find it interesting how some of the stars are so easy to recognize as children and others not a bit. It's fun guessing who they are.

   Gram77 posted on Main Page The Lobby  I hear often about the calls people get telling them there is a problem with their computer. Got one today and I'm sure the guy was Indian. Of course I hung up but now I know these calls are for real.

   Fireball27  I just got one about 10 minutes ago. I just hang up. If there is a person talking, I just say "No thanks" and hang up. I get them from Charter cable, and I just say " No thanks I have Direct TV, then I hang up. Short and sweet.

   Flaming Sword  Don't hang up. String them along.They'll ask for a number, credit card, password,something. Tell them you can't remember it but have it written down. Ask if they'll hold while you get it. They'll get excited and say yes. Put the receiver on the table.Go make lunch, have a nap..

   Lonestar Jack  I have caller ID and if I don't recognize the caller or it is a restricted number I let it go to messaging. Friends and legitimate businesses leave a message and I return the call.
If it is a wrong number and they ask for a woman I tell them to wait because she is upstairs with a customer.

The best I heard was the guy who tells the caller that he called a crime scene and to stay on the phone while he asks a lot of personal questions like he was a detective interviewing a suspect.

   StormCnter  Gram, Fox was saying that the people in charge (law enforcement, the mayor, etc ) wanted kids to be home from school and rush hour to be over so that people were home from work. Fewer innocents in danger.
