Oh! My daughter recently visited Tennessee, and
absolutely *loved* it! She'll be traveling there
rather frequently on business, and is looking forward
to taking the whole family on future trips.
And my son-in-law was very happy to find that beer is
sold *everywhere*! Here in PA, it can be inconvenient
- you can buy cases at beer distributors, or pay
higher prices for six-packs at bars & restaurants,
although in some areas "six pack stores" which must
also sell a certain percentage of food to be allowed
to sell beer are popping up more often. And you're
only allowed to buy the ounce equivalent of two
six-packs at a time, which means you get more exercise
making several trips to the car. <gg> Liquor is only
available at "State Stores". Pa's laws especially
confuse tourists from New Jersey, where beer is sold
in grocery stores and mini-marts.
One of the things I enjoy most about the internet is
"meeting" people from different places, and just
getting a more "personal" picture of them, even about
silly little things like weather, growing season,
local "customs", etc.

Congratulations!! And yes, doesn't it feel great to
"houseclean"!!!! I felt absolutely *wonderful* when
I boxed up all my stuff & had it waiting on the porch
for garbage day, but actually I'm sort of glad that
something popped up at a.r.e. & I had to look
something up, and changed my mind & kept it all. It's
all come in quite handy for internet "work" - and I'm
also appreciate of everything other former members
have sent me since I left, to complete my
"collection". Thanks, everyone, and I *will* be using
it all to get more info on the internet.
I do agree with Sword, though, that it's also a good
idea to sell MWs & discourses at Ebay. Just being
able to overcome the cult's programming about keeping
it all "secret" is very liberating!
Oh - for those concerned that selling their eckstuff
might possibly influence someone to join the cult, it
might be helpful to just write a little "Beware of
Cult!" note on the inside cover, with some URLs.

<giggle> Thinking about some of Klemp's silly "toilet
karma" stories here - I think Patrick is safe! Really
- when you look at it, it's quite obvious that if one
swallows all that eck-karma-nonsense, the fact that we
spent some time in that silly pseudo-spiritual
protection racket must mean that we had some really
heavy karma to pay back & suffer for! <gg>
Well...I've just been totally ecstatic the past few
days, because I've got a pair of sweet little
black-capped chickadees building a nest in a
"decorative" birdhouse on my heavenly little back
deck! They're just *so* sweet, and I can't wait to
see the babies!! Chickadees are so friendly and
trusting, and not bothered at all by my close
presence. Somehow, they seem to know that Paws, my
old cat, is no longer capable of jumping even a little
bit, even if she was still interested in hunting,
which she's not.
Gotta run - haven't seen my precious new grandson for
two days (although we "chatted" on the phone
yesterday) and I'm actually going through withdrawal!!
Celebrate summer, everyone!
