Full moon

Tonight's full moon is called: The Full Beaver Moon or The Frost Moon. According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, the traps needed to be set before the water froze to make sure that there would be a supply of warm winter furs.

Music Monday

Music: Not Meant to Be by Theory of a Deadman and Frost by Rachel Sage.

Be sure to check out Paperbackswap.com  It's a great site.

How it works:  you sign up for a free account
                        enter the ISBN numbers of books that you want to get rid of
                        when someone wants your book you receive an email
                        you pay to send the book (the sender pays,the receiver gets it for free)
                        you receive 1 credit which you can now use to request a book for free

Two bits of advise. First, if you want a book and it's not available, put it on your "wish list". When someone enters the book into the system, it will automatically be put on hold for you. You will then receive an email asking if you still want the book and then you can say yes or no. Second, when you sign up, be sure to enter any "special conditions". My conditions include: non smoking homes, hard cover books need their dust jackets, no withdrawn library books, no tape/stickers/writing. Seems like alot but I'm kind of picky:)

Wow!! Where did the week go? How about: Everything Before by Deadmau5 and Doom and Gloom by The Rolling Stones. Yes, this is a new song by The Stones. Fun songs for the hectic week ahead.

Music Monday

I want to share the first 3 songs that my yoga instructor plays at the start of every class: First is Om Asatoma, Second is Gayatri Mantra and the third is Tumare Darshan. All three are sung by Deva Premal. Tumare Darshan is my favorite. I went to goggle and found the translation on spiritvoyage.com:

The season has arrived where
I will finally see you and dance
with you,
With the breathing in of joy
it is time to live in bliss.

RT Booklovers Convention 2013

Ever heard of the RT booklovers convention? Me neither till this year. This past April, it was held in Chicago. Carol and I went and had a blast!! The convention is a few days long but we went for the saturday book fare. They had a large room filled with authors ready to sign books. Some of the authors even have free swag (buttons, bookmarks, ect)!!! Some bring their latest book that you may purchase, but you are not required to buy any books. You may bring books from home. While you're waiting in line, a guy comes around with a stamp that will put an "invisible mark" on your personal books. Then at checkout, they pass a light over the books you have so they can see which need to be purchased, so it's imperative that you get your books marked. After the book fare, there are workshops, then there is a evening party (some of the authors attend and have more free stuff). All was included in the one day fee. 2013 will be in Kansas City. The web site is rtconvention.com They already have a list of authors that plan to attend and it's already a large list!!!
