  1. Question and Answer
    I couldn't figure out the best place to put this. I like to check out library books every few weeks, and can request books from other libraries in our very large city library system. Anyone have any favorite books they've read about gardening, simple living, eco-living, and frugality that I...

    Stopped at Aldi's after I went to the dentist and bought some stockpile items. 3 cans each of corn/lt kidney bns/dk kidney bns/black beans/chili tomatoes/mushrooms/frozen turkey rolls. That was all for making chili. The whole bottom basket of my fridge is full of frozen turkey rolls. So glad I...

    This is in front of the Black Diamond branch of the King County Library. It's a sculpture, and in the front it has some wordliness about children and books, but what's interesting about it is the view from this angle. A friend took it himself and posted it to his facebook page. I would not have...

    Ok just wanted to say I went to the library today to pick up books that I got through inteer library loan. Then got two movies for me (and one was kept in a room not open to the public so I felt exclusive when the aide went and got it for me :) ) Plus walked away with two movies for the kiddos...

    ~Now that I'm a homeschooling mommy with a kid who is reading I made sure to look up the dates on my library's website and write them on my calendar. Mine is in June, for three days. Hoping to score some great, cheap books! Do you go to your sale? What do you look for?~

    I am going to join the crowd and read his books. I have read a few pages so far with the little spare time I had between work and picking up the kids from the bus. I have a few chores to do then back to reading! I like it so far. Usually my eyes glaze over and I fall asleep reading serious...

    Some of you may remember this summer I was really struggling with the decision to hold my daughter back in kindergarten. In the end we decided to retain her because it was better to error on the side of caution. Well I am excited to report that her reading is coming along with flying colors...

    I stopped off at the library today to do some research, and on my way out, I stumbled into their used book sales area. I probably spent an hour just going through all the books and magazines, some free, and none more than $4.00. They had some really great books, and I ended up picking out two...

    My public library has a day where you can "read away" any library fines. You can earn $2.00 for every 15 minutes of reading (to a max of $16). Often library's do this as part of Literacy Week. I'm just on my way now to read away my fines - I love the library, but unfortunately they should...

    With this downturning economy, even governments are having a hard time. My own city is facing at least a $4 million dollar decrease in revenues, and my state is facing more than $140 million in shortfalls. One alternative to getting out of the situation is to raise taxes, a solution that no...

    Has anyone else noticed the increase in users at your local library? I have. I'm glad to see it to be honest. My mom lives in Southern Arizona and has lived in her town for maybe 5 years. I asked here a few months ago if she checked out stuff from her library and she didn't even have a...

    Our library as been holding their friends of the library book sale this week, they have it 3 times a year. I always go the first day, and then return again later in the week when they have been thinned down a bit so the choices are not so overwhelming. All paperbacks are 50 cents and hardbacks...
  17. Careers
    Hello all, This weekend, I finally got around to redesigning my resume. It went from an overweight blob to a trim powerhouse. Since sunday night, as of 7:40 this morning, my new resume on careerbuilder has appeared in 13 searches and been viewed twice. By way of comparison, in the previous...
