Glad to know there are others like m, I make these PB cheesecake cookies, and drizzle chocolate over them, some say they are rich, but I love that PB texture and taste.

Tee hee, yeah that too, I went to school in East Lansing, even tho I lived in NY the snow came early and often that first year.

The anesthesia has just about worn off, and I'm pretty darn sore! I'm going to eat dinner, take some pain meds, and lay down.

I hope all of you are well~Will catch up here soon. Take care.

I am so happy to read this, take care Snowflake and we are all here for you. Kisses for Harlowe

I never really "learned" Calibre very well. Amazon has a thing where you can e-mail a file to your Kindle and it will convert it. It works fairly well if the formatting isn't too complex (e.g., lots of indentations, small caps). I should update my Calibre and take another shot at it.

I don't think that'll be much help - I don't need animal control coming and killing the poor thing! It is literally freezing out, though, so I set out a box, wrapped a couple of blankets in it and around it, and left the cat some food and water. I don't know what else I can do. Hopefully he/she is at least full, warmer, and not thirsty! I wish I was a cat person but I have asthma so I'm not much help. It's a shame people desert their animals.
Do you know if there's a cat rescue in your area? In Massachusetts and New Hampshire we have Kitty Angels, which is a no-kill cat shelter. If there's something like that where you live, they would be glad to pick up the kitty and find it a home.
