The Computer or the ID ten T Error?!

Old Harold
I was having trouble with my computer. So I called Harold the computer guy, to come over. 

Harold clicked a couple of buttons and solved the problem.  He gave me a bill for a minimum service call.

As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was wrong?"

He replied, "It was an ID ten T error."

I didn't want to appear stupid, but nonetheless inquired, "An, ID ten T error? What's that .. in case I need to fix it again?" Harold grinned.... "Haven't you ever heard of an ID ten T error before?"

"No," I replied.

"Write it down," he said, "and I think you'll figure it out."

So I wrote down ...... I D 1 0 T      I used to like Harold.                                                             ~~~

Good Morning! 

Robert Noonan, author of the Wildflowers trilogy, sent me the above joke... I thought it was cute...you know, sometimes you have to wonder though... Notice the one black typed sentence above?  Well, I thought I'd be a little fancy for the joke, so I changed the color...except, this sentence wouldn't change!  I tried five different times!

You know, I think Harold has a very weird sense of humor!

Speaking of Bob, he is getting read to submit his three books to a publisher!  I wish him the best in getting everything ready... Of course, he seems to feel that I should help, so I have the job of one final proofreading...of all three! 

I'm just now finishing reading an anthology on fate...interesting selections!  And have finished and am working on a review for R.D. Fresh.  At the same time, I'm doing a final proofreading for a reprint of Flying into Tomorrow.  Check out my review on this one, a favorite of mine...

And while you're out there, check out an investment book for student housing/real estate if you're interested:

Then, if you have children or grandchildren...check out a fantastic self-learning book on financial freedom, geared toward our youth:

In my opinion, Patrick Lyons has provided an outstanding contribution to our young people!  Do take a look at this one!

I have had the most fun with a new author whose book came in about a month ago... I liked it, but... 

Since the author was amenable, I did a critical review of his book, suggesting ways to improve it.  Since then, he's rewritten and resubmitted it for a new read and a formal review.  I can't wait!  In fact, that's the one that's next on my stack!  Will tell you more later, but it's an historical romance telling us about "black gold."  Very interesting!

Hey, while you're out checking out my reviews, take a look at all the books highlighted on our site! http://www.bookreviewers.org/reviews.htm  We have a steady stream of submissions for review and we've added two new reviewers since the last time you might have visited. 

Our dear director has been extremely busy...she has two new books out and has a number of sites to visit!  I'll pull those together and share during your next visit here!

By the way, I have a new blog started... it had been percolating in the back of my mind, but my sister, Marlene, recently asked about a former pet column I had written...so I decided to move ahead with this one...Do stop and visit with the Cabin Cats!
