Read The Last American Man by Elizabeth Gilbert as well.  Very entertaining.   Eustace Conway has made his home in the Appalachian Mountains, mastering the art of self-sufficient living.  Elizabeth is now on my MUST RE...

Feel the Ripple!

Posted on ago

Well, JW made my day.  She came in to use the library computers as she usually does once a week and gave me a "Feel Good Ripple", from the Servus Credit Union.  I was tickled!!!  So I decided to buy two library memberships with it if people who did not have memberships came in today.  And two new ones did.  So SJ and PF got an annual membership for our library.  And they were just as tickled as I was!!! Also had a gentleman named Keith Scott stop by t... More...
