Curl up with a reallllly big book
I have to say, I've read the Jean Auell books (though not consecutively), and I'm still struggling with The Pillars of the Earth (I put it down for too long and now I have to refresh the characters in my mind). I thought the last Harry Potter book was long (but quick)! Name some of the longest books you've read, and whether you loved or hated them.→Read more...

Creative Challenge As part of a work project where we're going to be a Christmas tour, I need to decorate a Victorian room along the theme "Seven Swans a-Swimming." I'e found lots of die-cut swans to make paper ornaments from, and also some glittery swans on sleds as ornaments. But what I else could I do to really work that theme into the decor? I'm not the greatest with floral display but I would tackle it for a clever idea. The danger with this theme, of course, is that it comes out looking like a tacky wedding! Thanks for any creative ideas you can offer.

Something that made me go HMMMM, HUH? If you're over 46 years of age, then every man to walk on the moon did so in your lifetime (even if you were too young to remember seeing them). And if you're under 43, then NOBODY has been to the moon in YOUR lifetime. Sorry.
