Shhhh! You are not supposed to give away my secret identity. Thank goodness you didn't let it slip that I'm really a big, hairy, sweaty man who lives in my mom's basement.

My oldest has some dyslexia. The reading lab teacher suggested Archie comic books as a way to get her interested and keep her interested in reading until she gained the skills and strategies to compensate.

It seems to have worked.

We have a lot of them in a box in my husband's office/room

Hah! I still have mine in a box too. And still come across stragglers floating around my parents house over 20 years after I moved out. I should dig that box out and give it to my kid.

<quoted text>There are lots of creepy message threads out there and what baffles me is why people keep up with the conversation at all after it is clear that the other person has turned weird..

Why don't they just stop the convo, not respond and block the person if needed?

I have been criticized on other boards for asking that but no one has ever given me an answer,

Exactly what I was thinking. I was going to respond to PEllen, "Where's the drama in that?"

That wasn't FB, it was just shared on there after the fact.

I like to play my son's 3DS after he goes to sleep.

My favorite NES games were Contra and Castlevania. My brothers and I spent hours playing them.

My first computer game was the 7th Guest. Do you remember that one?

<quoted text>No, I don't know that one. The first one I played was Myst and I loved it! It's probably why I loved the TV show Lost so much, now that I think about it.
They were very similar. There was a sequel to 7th Guest called 11th Hour.

I saw this news article. It's Fox News so I'm not sure if it's true.:) BUT, if so, Russia has it's panties in a bunch and lashed out on something they probably shouldn't have. I seem to remember they need the U.S. to bring supplies to the station. This will get more dicey, I imagine, before it gets resolved.

In Tonka speak you mean
You copied/pasted all the books and put them in your phone for later retrival. Oh, and of course you mean DOWNLOAD the books right? Not to actually buy the physical book.

nice.

By the way, here is a major benefit TO ME in using a tablet instead of a paper book or newspaper. Lighting. If I am trying to sit in a comfortable lounging position, like the lazy boy recliner or laying back on the couch, there is no direct light hitting the pages i am trying to read. My gaze is angled up at the page that is angled down. Before I got a tablet, I had considered getting some sort of clip on light that would attach to the bill of my hat and therefore aim right at whatever i ws reading. No need for that now.
