I don't know if any of you are aware of the above-referenced site, but I became a member just recently. It is free to become a member. Create your account, go through the profile and list what you like to read, and everyday you will get an alert for something you might find interesting ranging from free to $1.99. I have so far picked up a few freebies to read which I enjoyed.
Of course, since I didn't mention it, this is for electronic devices only. You can also pick which device you use as an e-reader so they know what books to refer from what source. I have a Kindle so I get all of my referrals from Amazon.
I do not know if this works for my friends overseas. I have a feeling not, but you never know. It may well work for you also.
Hope this was helpful to someone who loves to read as much as I do and has to budget themselves to purchase items to read on their e-readers.

Peace,
Daphne
4th-Apr-2016 08:28 pm - PLAY BALL!!
Red Sox
Baseball, that is, for all of you who do not live in North America.
Baseball season officially opened today, although my Boston Red Sox did not because it was too damn cold in Cleveland, where they were scheduled to play.

It has been whiskey tango foxtrot kind of happenings in the Northeast. Ever since we have had calendar spring, it has been colder. And here in Maine, driving home tonight, the snow was falling so beautifully and gently it felt like we should be decorating for Christmas again. Luckily we are on the edge of the storm. Boston got hit with about 7 inches, I think.

I can't believe I have posted nothing since last fall. It's just been crazy busy dealing with family "stuff" and work.

I hope everyone is doing well.

Peace,

This week has been absolutely beautiful in Northern New England. In one week the colors have just popped. Of course, the bad side is that they won't be here long. Pretty soon we will have bare trees to look at, and thoughts of the "s" word will come to mind. (Snow)

This is looking up through a tree I look at everyday out of my home office window.

Hope all are well!

Peace,

Last download 157

This is my stoop garden. I live in a condo so I cannot have a garden, but I plant these in about four pots and they are sitting on old apple orchard crates right outside my front door.
I wish I had taken a before shot because, boy howdy, did these flowers go wild this year. I won't rip them out as long as it stays as warm as it's been -- or unless they start getting really leggy. Then the mums will have to go in. I know the ivy looks out of place, but it told me it wanted to go outside for the summer. The vining plant in the lower left corner is my neighbor's little girl's pumpkin plant.
:-))
I know calendar wise summer is still here, but event wise, it's basically over next weekend, being Labor Day Weekend here in the States.

I hope everyone had a good summer!!

Peace,

When I first moved to Maine I did say Banger. The lawyer I was talking to said, Bang her, I barely knew her!

Caught this on a friend's facebook page. This is amazing -- at least to me it is.

fall and spring and summer 013




I parked next to this driver and his/her passenger at the Tractor Supply Store when I went to purchase some bird seed. I couldn't help myself!

b/j hug
Hello everyone!

It's been two months shy of a year that I've posted anything. I'm sorry I've missed so many birthdays. I haven't been totally way, I have been lurking. I just haven't had the inclination to post anything.

So belated wishes to those that I missed, and I believe there are a couple today. So HAPPY BIRTHDAY to all!!

I wish I could say something exciting happened in my time away. It was far from it. Family dramas, mother falling and breaking her hip -- which she's doing great. She barely has a limp when she walks, and she's taking her usual fall trip to Munich (her hometown), although she's a month later than usual. So please keep your fingers crossed for good weather in Munich in October. I love my mom, but I do so badly need a break from her, and the next 4-1/2 weeks (starting October 7) will be bliss. :-)

Work was so damn slow during the summer that I actually took on two part-time jobs just to try to keep my head above water. All I can say is thank the gods for a nest egg, although now I will have to be building that up again.

The colors are starting to turn up here in Maine. It's so beautiful. And of all things, it may be 80 degrees this Saturday. It will be a big beach day here on the coast. People will be out in droves for one last hurrah, but I hope it's not the last one. We can have some pretty awesomely warm days in the fall.

Peace,
Daphne
