   NotaBene posted on Suggested Viewing/Listening  I starting watching The Good Wife and I loved it. I watched seasons 1-5 and now I have to wait for the next episodes. Season 1-4 was free in Amazon with Prime. I bought season 5 because I was completely hooked. Now I am watching The Guardian, about lawyers again, I like it, it is nice to watch TV while I knit.

Downton Abbey is my favorite, but we have a long wait for the next season.

   Nugoddess  Any thoughts on the finale? I thought it was just a smidge too long - that nonsense with the letter was bogus.

   NotaBene posted on Recipes  Thank you Olhokie64 for your meatloaf recipe. I will try it this weekend. I have a crockpot my children gave me but only used it once.

If you have good recipes you have tried in the crockpot can you post them here?

Thank you!!!

   Balogreene  NotaBene: Go to, and check out Kindle books for the crock pot. You can download the Kindle program to your PC, laptop, tablet, or phone. There are plenty of cookbooks for under 3.00. I put them on my iPad, or my laptop, they actually are not well formatted for the kindle. I cook using my iPad, or I print from my laptop.

I actually have a bunch of crockpot recipes we love, I will add them later, probably tonight.

   NotaBene posted on Suggested Reading  I am reading a book written by Mary E. Pearce, The Old House at Railes. I bought it at a library sale. Never heard of this author before and I love it. I am almost at the end of the book, I will finish it today and will go to Amazon to see if I can get more books of this author. It is just the kind of book I needed at this moment, no violence, no sex, just a nice story.

I read all books by Rosamund Pilcher and Maeve Binchy. Love to read books by English writers. I lived in England for six years maybe that is why I love English writers so much.

   BirdsNest  NB-my diabetes "Go-To" nurse practitioner is adamant about cinnamon. You can add it to anything that cinnamon tastes good in, but unless you sweeten it with sugar or that awful Splenda, it is bitter. I prefer the capsules since I refuse to use any kind of artificial sugar.

   Bettijo  BirdsNest: I am gluten free and was told not to use any sweetner except Spevia (I think it is natural ) Get it in a bag, about 1 pound, not in a jar for two reasons: The name brand (I think it is Tuvia, or something similar ) is more costly and you cannot substitute equal amount for sugar in recipe. The generic in bag you can substitute in equal amount for sugar. You cannot tell the difference.

   NotaBene posted on Main Page The Lobby  Dear Kevin Coughlin CapMarineTet:

You will be greatly missed dear friend. We were so fortunate to be on your email list. We were honored to read your Motorcycle adventures in the Phillippines when you were studying to become a pastor. Greatly regret not have met you personally, but through thousands of emails we know you well. You were a good man who fought for his country to the end. Happy Easter Kevin. You are at a better place now.

God bless you.

   NotaBene posted on Movies & Reviews  Just posted about For Greater Glory with Andy Garcia in the Main Lobby. Great movie. The fight of the Cristeros saving the Catholic Church against the government that persecuted them destroyed the churches and killed the priests. We also loved The Lost City. He is a great actor and is not afraid to act in these controversial movies.

   NotaBene posted on Main Page The Lobby  Last Friday we went to the movies after many years. We cannot watch the new, modern movies so we did not go anymore. But last Friday we watched For Greater Glory with Andy Garcia. We are Catholics and this movie was terrific. Even if you are not Catholics you will enjoy it. The President of Mexico started persecuting the Catholic church. Sounds familiar? The military persecuted people, destroyed the churches and killed the priests. People started organizing against the government. They were called Cristeros. It is a great movie showing how faith is so important to a lot of people. I recommend it.

   NotaBene posted on Main Page The Lobby  Coy860 I am very sorry for your loss. After reading your post I went to the bank to check our account is in DH's name and mine but that we were both principal in the account. Then I checked the credit card receipts and I saw both our names but I decided to call and the creit card is in my husband's name and I am co-dependent. They will send us some papers to have the creit card in both our names.

I want to thank you because in this moment of grief you thought about letting us know what is happening to you. God bless and help you during this difficult time.

   NotaBene posted on Main Page The Lobby  We moved to this country 25 years ago. It has been a blessing living in the US all these years. I hope something will happen and we will still be able to work hard and have a good living and be free. We have to change the pResident, so please do not stay home and vote for the GOP candidate. It does not matter if you like him/her or not. We need to get the pResidents back to Chicago.

God bless the USA.

   Ole buzzard  It's not just Obama who needs to go. Every - and I mean EVERY - Congress critter or Senator who has been in Washington more than one term needs to be replaced. They have shown, more than sufficiently, that they are either unable or unwilling to perform their duties as outlined in the Constitution. They have all abused their offices for their personal gains. We need also to abolish the departments of education, energy and health and human services, as well as the EPA. We need to end ALL government programs where the taxes taken from one person end up in the hands of someone who has not earned them.

Then, and ONLY then, will this country be on the road to renewal.

   NotaBene posted on Computers &Tech Issues  Ynaught, this is in answer to your question about a a machine for your cruise on March 15. We are a Pc family but my husband gave me an iPad for my birthday and it is wonderful. You can buy apps for anything you like. We have our email accounts, surf the Internet, actually I am typing this now in my iPad. I love games so I have bubble shooter, free cell, solitaire, spider solitaire, roulette and slot machines. We took it to Mexico last month and as long as there is WiFi you can access all in your iPad. You can also access your photos, music and downloaded books without WiFi. I highly recommend it. We are thinking of buying a second one because hubby and I are fighting for it.

Sent from my iPad!
