Janet Evanovich team

Monday, March 18, 2013

Love Stephanie Plum. Now my Janet Evanovich team will be starting a new challenge. If you are a fan of Stephanie, come check out the team and join in on our travel challenge. Enough people and we can be on Team Ranger or Team Morelli. I'm a Joe Morelli fan myself.

I'm a bit behind in my reading, I think the next book for me will be #16 and think she is on #18 or #19. I read all kinds of books, but eventually always come back to Stephanie. I do love Janet Evanovich's Desiel series though. Wish she would write more of him.

    What a fun team idea! Maybe once BLC I'll look into it--too much on my plate at this time.

Happy Easter!

    I love Evanovitch! I, too, read all sorts of books, but I like reading her when my brain needs a break! LOL
I'll look for your team.

    Hmm... haven't read this series yet. I'll bet my husband wouldn't like it as it's yet (another series I'll be addicted to).

    Watch out, world. Here comes Stephanie Plum, a bounty hunter with attitude. In Stephanie’s opinion, toxic waste, rabid drivers, armed schizophrenics, and August heat, humidity, and hydrocarbons are all part of the great adventure of living in Jersey. emoticon Sounds *fun* Courti. I've never read any Janet Evanovich, but the Stephanie Plum novels sound like they could be pretty good. Thanks for sharing, Courti, but I'd HAVE to 'do' some major reading to know if I wanted Joseph Morelli or Ricardo Carlos Manoso, AKA Ranger. LOL!! I see there's 4 novellas with Diesel...

Now, I'm interested. emoticon

    Hi I have read all , all except for her newest one out. Love here books, but the last two for me weren't as interesting as all the others. Also enjoy other books Janet has written either alonr or with another author. I am thinking about the April challenge, just not someone who walks a lot every day, wouldn't want to hold a team back. Will do some more thinking.

St. Patrick's Day

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Many folk ask the question 'Why is the Shamrock the National Flower of Ireland ?' The reason is that St. Patrick used it to explain the Holy Trinity to the pagans. Saint Patrick is believed to have been born in the late fourth century, and is often confused with Palladius, a bishop who was sent by Pope Celestine in 431 to be the first bishop to the Irish believers in Christ.

Had it not been for a band of Irish marauders in the fifth century, March 17 might've been plain old Maewyn's Day — because Maewyn wouldn't have changed his name to Patrick, and he likely wouldn't have become a saint. In fact, it wouldn't have been a Day at all.
But as it happened, a certain 16-year-old Welsh lad was kidnapped by those Irish marauders, and during the six years young Maewyn spent in servitude as a shepherd in Ireland he experienced a religious awakening, then spent years studying in a monastery. He took on a new name, Patrick, and a new calling — converting his countrymen to Christianity.

    Courti, I may be wrong but I heard he was a Scot. Anyway... it's a beautiful story. I read this the other day and thought to share it on St. Patrick's Day, but now's as good a time as any:

One leaf for fame,
One leaf for wealth,
One for a faithful lover,
One for glorious health;
All in this four-leafed clover.

Okay, for this week’s challenge we have to blog about what is on our minds. You ask so here it is.

Where would I be if I had taken another road? What if I hadn’t met my first husband? I wouldn’t be in Florida. I wouldn’t have divorce and moved away to be with family and met my present husband and married 21 yrs. Where would I be and who would I be with? What if I didn’t get the job I had, I wouldn’t have gone on early retirement.

I’ve also been thinking about death lately. In the last ten years we’ve lost 5 relatives. What if something else had been done in their life, how would it have affected their health?

What with all the things happening in the world and talk about the end of age, it has me thinking about the Rapture. I’m thankful to be a believer in Christ and that I was raised in a Christian family.

I want to study Revelation and learn more about the end of age.

I could have just made it simple and said that chocolate was on my mind…... Well, it has, but other things of more importance had been there too.

    It would be interesting to see the lines of other roads you could have traveled- just as an observer... what would have happened if you did this or that. Very introspective. And thinking about chocolate would have probably led to eating it. LOL!

    My sister gave me one of those inspirational calendars a few years ago, and this was yesterday's entry: If you could live this life over, would you still want there to be the same challenges? Loaded questions, huh? Year, you cherry-picked each and every one. And you know exactly what you were doing.

I've always been a firm believer that our choices determine where we are in life, and it sounds like you've made some GOOD choices.

    Don't worry, I'm not dwelling or leletting it overwhelm me, but the challenge was to blog about what has been on my mind lately and that was it. I guess I let it sound like I'm caught up in it.

    It is good to think on things, but not dwell on them. We are blessed to have our God who handles it all for us and provides a way for us to find things out on our own. Thanks for sharing.

    Indeed--important questions! Understanding the purpose of the past on the future is a worthy goal... though remember to enjoy the present, too. : ) Revelations is interesting, no doubt!

    Oh, no I don't plan to join them shortly unless the Rapture does come. I'm kind of content, but curious to learn more of Revelations and what is to come. Not that I can understand all of Revelation, but would like to study...if I give it the time needed. Things just get in the way. I don't think there is a team studying it on SP.

    Very DEEP thoughts... Has your journey given you satisfaction, are you content, do you find yourself at a crossroads of sorts? Now that some family have completed their time *here* do you to join them shortly, or do you prefer to go in the Rapture? Are you worried that Revelations may hide clues you need? These are the kind of questions YOUR thoughts have brought to my mind, my friend. emoticon

Pink Panther

Friday, March 01, 2013


In the Fall of 1969, the Pink Panther cartoons made their way to NBC television shown Saturday mornings via The Pink Panther Show. NBC added a laugh track to the original cartoons, with Marvin Miller brought on as an off-camera narrator talking to the Pink Panther during bumper segments featuring the Pink Panther and The Inspector together.
