And a first addition also? Seems like the someone let that slips through the cracks. I take it wasnt signed though?

Not signed... that would have been awesome. It was in reasonable condition, given its age. I did point out to the store clerk (possibly the owner???) that it was a first edition and that perhaps it needed to be repriced before I purchased it. The clerk said I could have it as priced, and to please visit the store again. I certainly will, the next time I am in the lovely, slightly touristy town of Bayfield Wisconsin.


Taken in strictly modern terms, some of Buck's work seems incredibly racist.

Yes. Agreed. And that is exactly why I started with the disclaimer "Don't judge the story outside of the time it was written,..."

It is the bigger themes in Peony that hold up over time - the importance of group identity; the inevitability of cultural assimilation; the interesting interplay between economics and social norms...

LOL Vic!!! That would be good too, but you didn't click on the dots. I linked people to that dance classic "popcorn".

I recently found a first edition of Pearl S. Buck's Peony for an absolute steal in a used book store. Don't judge the story outside of the time it was written, but it is quite the little page turner.

What will it all be worth in one hundred billion years......

My epitaph is my life.



I was just discussing this with PJ and Veerle!


No matter what I may accomplish with what time I may have left, when the Great Book Of Life is written, I'm not even going to make a footnote!

(Rather freeing, actually...)

Do people still wave lighters? I thought all the kids these days waved their cell phones in the air at concerts.

Canadians number amongst the nicest people I have ever met. If Ian says that his friends and neighbors will welcome us with open arms, then I now believe it.

We will not turn anyone away. How could the world
think we would stand on the frontier in cold disregard
for people in need?

When resources become scarce, people tend not to exercise generosity.

We have lots of land here, and no one likes
having to pay the high cost of living in our
coastal cities. Every one hates the cold.

How will Canadians feel when other peoples who have lost land and resources to global climate change immigrate to Canada in phenomenal numbers? Are you and your fellow countrymen planning to welcome us with open arms?

I'll still lose weight, so I don't need to follow a diabetic diet and I can still eat ice cream too, when I can afford to that is.

Mmmmmmmmm ice cream!!! What's not to love???!!!

Vic, at your current weight, age, height and activity level you are taking in approximately 3600 calories a day to maintain your weight. At my current weight, age, height and activity level I am taking in about 1830 calories a day to maintain my weight. Monday is probably somewhere between the two of us.

Different people, different challenges...

And with all the disco dancing I've been doing on TLPTPW thread, it is amazing to me that I haven't dropped a dress size!

I have one issue of a diabetic cooking magazine that I bought when my mother was initially diagnosed. There is a roasted pear, onion and butternut squash soup recipe in the issue I have that is outstanding. My mother requests that I make that soup for her a couple of times each fall... and she doesn't even know the soup is actually good for her!!!

Pudgy Little Raccoon Weigh-In
167.6 lbs

Too depressed to even click on the metric converter.

I am blaming this weigh-in on salt. There is no possible way that I gained two real pounds in seven lousy days. We had a dinner party on Saturday and I cooked a variety of delicious but high salt foods for the party. Then we ate the left-overs for lunch on Sunday. Then Eric cooked a salty dinner for the two of us on Sunday night.

Salt. That's my story and I'm sticking with it.
