Now that is different. I definitely want to hear how it goes. I have the feeling that your sale is going to be a huge success. What you don't sell, put it out for trash. Someone will come along and take it for free. So don't be surprised to see strangers going through your trash.

Or what you don't sell can be donated to a Habitat for Humanity store or other charity. Then you can take a tax deduction on the value of the items.

CG, if you're only going to use it for reading, consider a Kindle or Nook. They are much cheaper. I bought the basic Nook model for $79 less than two years ago.

OTOH, the tablet is much more fun! When you have a wifi connection, you can log on to DC with the mobile app, plus many more things: check email, shop online, watch videos, listen to music while you read, Skype with the kids, find places to stay or eat, play games, check your banking and pay bills, etc. I love mine. I have the Samsung Galaxy.

Thanks, Addie. I have loaded (and unloaded) the DW 3x today. The pans are still waiting to be done. I could use an extra hand, even it is a hook!

Well, if you must know, I sliced the top of my finger off earlier this afternoon. It took more than 4 hours to get the bleeding to stop. Typing without that finger stinks. Of course it is on my hand that I use most. I was slicing lemons really thin for the simple syrup for Poppy Seed Bread for the Church Fair next Month. Everyone makes pumpkin bread for the fair. I am going to make something different this year. You can't go wrong with lemon.

Stop doing that Addie! Makes me cringe just thinking about it!! And with lemon juice, OWIE!!!

I'm taking cardiology quizzes on a medical site, not doing too bad for a non-cardiologist.

The first thing I did was run warm water over it to make sure any juice bled out with the blood. Then I looked for the finger tip. Didn't find it. I would rather be doing what you are doing.

Thanks for the money-saving tip Andy, but I'll definitely be using it for more than book reading. I've used Himself's for streaming baseball games and find it buffers the feed better, resulting in no break in the audio.

Exactly GG. I figure I'll use it more like a larger-screened phone. Well, except the tablet doesn't make calls. *shrug* Neither do I. Not much, anyway. I like Himself's Samsung Tab4 best after comparing it to all the many-sized tablets that reside at his sister's home. They have something resembling a small electronics store.

I find I have been going to my phone more and more for email, Facebook, most anything but secure things like banking and bill-pay. I feel more comfortable doing those things on the laptop - easier to hit the correct keys.

I love my tablet for traveling, so much easier to handle than a laptop. I like hooking it up to the TV in hotels and streaming Netflix, Pandora and such.
