I LOVE it!
It's quite a bit heavier than the original Kindle. Pretty much navigates like a touchscreen smart phone. Very crisp display. Very fast. You can not only change your font, you can change the way it displays, such as black on white background, white font on black, or what seems to work well for me now, in a bright room, black on manilla background. It's not pearl e-ink, but it takes away the harshness of such a stark contrast.

I've been playing with it about an hour and am close to halfway through the guide. I'm very comfortable with it already.

OH MAN! I'm so jealous!!! I think I'd get a pretty grumpy reception if I put a Kindle Fire on my Christmas wishlist after going through all the issues with the one I have now. Phooey!

Our credit union changed bill payer software a week ago so I spent the morning updating some lost info and re-establishing some autopay and autobill accounts before I miss a payment.

Yesterday when I was "grazing" in my area Salvation Army thrift store, they had a mountain of fresh pie pumpkins that they were giving away. Well, I didn't have to think twice. I picked two really nice ones, but all of them were absolutely perfect I didn't have to choose too carefully.

So....I just finished roasting them for pumpkin puree. I put the pulp through my food mill and I ended up with 8 cups of the most beautiful pumpkin puree. Right now I have it in a coffee filter-lined strainer to drain. We're going to have some really yummy pumpkin pie for Thanksgiving dinner. The rest goes into the freezer.

Went to Sam's this morning to get milk and they were having a big sample day. I had lamb and Brussels sprouts for the first time in my life. I thought the lamb chop was a little dry but tasted OK, I liked the Brussels sprouts. I will have to find out how to cook them.

Waiting the last few minutes until I take the turkey (stuffed) out of the oven. Then, making gravy while it rests.

I put the stripped neck bones in beside the turkey to roast and just added it back to the giblet broth for a really rich stock for the liquid in my gravy.

I'm HUNGRY!!!
