    I belong to an all-female book group. We generally meet about once a month. I missed the last meeting so I don't know the name of the new book or the next meeting date. I'll check it out and send you an email.

    Bookclub???? Why would anyone feel the need to join a club to read a book? When I was a kid we just read by choice...... Oh wait, I can't read. Nevermind! :)

    P.S. Donna - I had to! hehehehe

    I apologize for not responding sooner. Work has been crazy, and I have been sick.

    It does sound like there is sufficient interest to start another book group.

    I wish I could invite everyone to join the book group to which I belong, but I can't. When there were just one or two people, it was possible, but interest has grown since then. And now, there are just too many people interested -- which is a good thing! We meet in our homes, so space is limited. Add to it the fact that there is never any parking available on our street, and it just won't work.

    I'll hold my tounge with my real opinion, but I agree with you.

    - One man's sarcasm is another man's opinion.
    - so I misspelled a word, tie me to the stake and light the fire!

    I'm quite sure everyone has made typos at some point. Not everyone has so much spare time as to cut/paste definitions from dictionary.com let alone spell check every post to an internet message board. Perhaps if I was turning in a thesis or published work, I'd be a bit more careful.

    Boy, talk about personal attacks...and on one's intelligence at that...

    Brim, Brim, Brim...

    I was waiting for you to say something about pdonnadurk pointing out your misspelling. I seem to recall in a prior thread when I mistakenly used the term "coop" instead of "co-op" that you said, and I quote "And it's co-op, a 'babysitter coop' is a cage or pen you keep babysitters in. :)" (see the thread at http://www.hoa.broadlands.org/forum34/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=599&whichpage=1)

    What is it that they say about those who live in glass houses??? Priceless! Way to go, pdonnadurk!

    Oh, and BTW, GO PATS!

    Oh BRIM, it wasn't personal. It was my opinion which, you so eloquently reminded us all recently, I am entitled to. Additionally I do not need to spell check anything but who wants to revisit the COOP vs. CO-OP debacle. Finally Bob is a friend and was kidding, you I suspect were not. Really, why if you have no interest in contributing positively to a discussion do you feel you have to respond? Some of us really want to use these forums to improve our community and share information.

    True, but I didn't go out of my way to look up definitions on dictionary.com and paste them to further illustrate my point. Furthermore, coop and co-op are two different words with different meanings whereas I clearly misspelled one word into a non-word.

    I can take it as well as dish it out, but I'm not one to say "Oh that's wrong!", then go get the rule book, look up the appropriate infraction, and rub someone's nose in it. I see it as quite a difference.

    EDIT:
    It's not my fault Manning was freezing and the Pats are good enough on offense to always just manage to score enough points that the competition. They do have an excellent D tho. :(

    ...and how would one know that one used dictionary.com to cut/paste definitions from -- unless they had time to go to dictionary.com themselves???

    Hey, I just said 'I agree with you' in so many words and I was jumped on. I hadn't said anything up until that point and this thread ahs been around a month, so...sarcasm or not...I used his post to get my muted opinion out there. What would the world be like if everyone agreed with each other. :(

    Umm, because I suspected thats where it came from so I checked it out?

    My point is, that I don't go out of my way to find supporting facts to slam other people's intelligence.
