And Gus says, "I just want to know why you can't ring the bell for yourself.

The e-book version is a lot cheaper, of course. Which version would you recommend? Vi Dear Vi I would recommen the e-book version without the slightest hesitation. With e-books you CAN print them, if you need paper. You can even print just those pages that you want, like indexes or summaries. You can also take screen captures of paragraphs or illustrations and paste those into word processor documents. With e-books you aren't just saving trees and money, you are getting a lot more value. Have FUN! DearWebby
Little Johnny and his family lived in the country, and as a result seldom had guests. He was eager to help his mother after his father appeared with two dinner guests from the office. When the dinner was nearly over, Little Johnny went to the kitchen and proudly carried in the first piece of apple pie, giving it to his father who passed it to a guest. Little Johnny came in with a second piece of pie and gave it to his father, who again gave it to a guest. This was too much for Little Johnny, who said, "It's no use, Dad. The pieces are all the same size."

Daily tip from Reheat Pizza in a Frying Pan By lalala... [827 Posts, 105 Comments] A great way to reheat leftover pizza is in a frying pan. Place the pizza in the frying pan over medium heat. Slices of pizza in a frying pan Cover loosely with a piece of aluminum foil that is domed in the center so it doesn't stick to the cheese. Frying pan with aluminium foil It can burn quickly so check it every few minutes until it is heated through and is crispy enough for you on the bottom. The result is a crispy crust, instead of the rubbery, soggy crust you get when microwaved.
