1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

    Closing Monday, November 23 at 12:01 AM EST

    booklover72 very strange person

    I head of it but because i don't understand baseball.... is it an e-book. I think easons are selling it for 1.99.

    P.s what is it with cookies. Vampirelilly :"follow me .... and i give you a cookie and chuggs come to the dark side, we have cookies.

    as FlakeNoir states There will be choclate If god wills it, and he does will it. chocolate(candy) herseys, mars bars, maltesers. My problem is when a new bar comes out to complete really enjoy, i must eat 10 of the bars. hmm so much for being fit. and choclate donuts and everything nice that you like that is bad for you, i.e coke, beer, red meat, cake, coffee.

    I'm really battling through this one. I'm a sports fan, but baseball doesn't belong in the culture of my country, so I have no idea what they are talking about when they discuss the matches' highlights. Also, so far I've reached 1/3 of the book and it seems more of an O'Nan book than King's. So far, I've noticed that there are more Stewart's thoughts than Stephen's. Anyway, back to the battle... after all, I'm close to the finish line of Stephen King books.

    Interesting idea. Should you like what your favourite author likes? I'd say no. But at the same time, if I really admired the person I would think that I'm missing out on something interesting that they have a view into which makes them what they are. I guess I would check it out after all.

    This is an idea that gained some traction for a little while (mostly thanx to Dan Shaughnessy). Sox fans love their angst, and I'd be willing to bet that at least some of them -- besides me -- kind of miss it. But remember that this is the team that came back from an 0-3 deficit to the hated (read: envied) New York Yankees.

    Yes . . . the Red Sox eventually won the Series, but can you imagine how delighted so many of them must have been, so certain they could never possibly come back from that deficit to that team.

    Like I say, I'm sure some of them had to be at least secretly disappointed that what they thought of as their own special hell . . . was over.

    Oh . . . and as an addendum to my previous post, the Sox winning the World Series did ruin that great epitaph I recall Mr. King once saying he would love to have should he "go on" without witnessing a World Series title for his favorite team:

    "Not in my life . . . and not in yours!"
