Best book I read this year: Shirley by Charlotte Bronte. Loved it. Best book I've read in a long time.
Currently reading Regression by Kathy Bell on a Kindle. Not Bronte but a good yarn.

heehee

I remember when the custom of asking first came in. I was frequently mortified at how old I must be looking if the cashier felt I needed help. Not that I remonstrated, I'm far too polite.

Matt always looks like a person dancing.
