Next to Newsletter- Monday, November 14, 2011

Good morning everybody! Here's a big N2N howdy to all the new folks who signed up this week to receive the Next to Newsletter. They're an intriguing bunch...former kangaroo rescuers, an herbalist who just finished walking the Appalachian Trail, a cookbook author (I'm expecting some great contributions to the Whatcha Eatin' section!) and a retired rocket scientist.

Welcome one and all!

What's on sale?

Monday-Tuesday: 30% OFF infant wear 0-24 months

Wednesday-Thursday: 30% OFF men's shirts

Friday-Saturday-Sunday: 30% OFF ALL Christmas clothes!

My husband, Arthur, and I each write twice-a-month columns for The Times here in Gainesville. His deal with computing and technology issues. Mine deal with whatever strikes my fancy.

Arthur's 100th Computer Care column was published on November 12th. Click here to read "Revisiting some key tips on column 100"

My column ran on 11/11/11. Click here to read "College takes higher education to lower level."

When Parents Text

Growing up in a world where there are apps to locate bathrooms and the Internet fits in your back pocket, children learn to text as soon as -- if not before -- they learn to speak. Parents, on the other hand... not so savvy. When we try to master the art of emoticons and acronyms, the results can be hilarious, especially to our kids.

New uses for old things

I just love Real Simple magazine's "new uses for old things" section. Click here to get inspired by creative new uses for holiday items.

Whatcha Eatin'?

Looking for a new appetizer to wow all the holiday company? Try toasted ravioli- served up with a really good marinara sauce. Click here for the recipe. Many thanks to Rachel for the suggestion and Molly for the recipe!

Wise Words

10 Canine Commandments

1. My life is likely to last 10-15 years. Regular separation from you will be painful and can even cause depression. Think before you buy me.

2. Give me time to understand what you want from me. Don't be impatient, short-tempered or irritable.

3. Place your trust in me and I will always trust you back. Respect is earned not given as some sort of inalienable right.

4. Don't be angry with me for long, and don't lock me up as punishment. I am not capable of understanding why I am being locked up. I only know I have been rejected. You have your work, entertainment and friends. I only have you.

5. Talk to me sometimes. Even if I don't understand your words, I do understand your tone. You only have to look at my tail to know that.

6. Be aware that however you treat me, I will never forget. If that treatment is unjust or bad, it may spoil the special bond between us.

7. Please do not hit me. I cannot hit back, but I can bite and scratch and I don't ever want to feel the need to do that.

8. Before you punish me for being uncooperative, obstinate or lazy ask yourself if something might be wrong with me. Perhaps I'm not getting the right food or I've been out in the sun too long, maybe my heart is getting old and weak, or maybe I'm just dog-tired.

9. Take care of me when I get old. You too will grow old and will also want care, love, and affection.

10. Go with me on difficult journeys. Never say, "I can't bear to watch" or "Let it happen in my absence". Everything is easier for me if you are there. Remember, no matter what you do I will always love you.
