Hi old friend I got to the best part of my computer.. Found my friend my blog… I was so worried that I would not find you.. For an object who can’t talk back to me you are a good friend… You help me talk things over in my head. you help me tell people who don’t know me and probley don’t care about my life and what is going on.. you help me tell people about my favorite thing to do in my life is my bookstore and how I have always wanted to have one, This online store has helped me fill my time when I have been sad, lonely, happy and glad… This blog is my second friend… My real friend was the first person to write a commment on here after I wrote.. She was the first person to buy a book from my bookstore. (Lucy Lipshits.) How about that for a name.. ‘
I want to thank @weatherangel for introducing you to me… and working with me to get u up and going….

The reason you got lost is because our computer crashed while we went away from it for one day… My shipping department is also a computer geek… in the repair department. He is retired and lives with me he is a husband, grandpa and a best friend.. Don’t know what I would do with out him.. Anyways my blog… thanks for being with me for almost a year… I just love writting on u and u help keep me sain…
Tomorrow I hope to have everything up and running again so I can put books and authors in you… and hope I don’t have to retake pictures of this weeks books as they are already in the computer that crashed but Gene is up looking files from as we speak.. He thought he had lost them all but he worked and worked till he thinks he has them but won’t know till he finishes….cross your fingers…. what a weekend…………come see our store at or

eCRATER is a little known place, where I can enter all my books for free, pay nothing to them when I sell books, or other items.  Then its also a place where you don’t have to pay allot when you buy…. I only charge 00.45 to 2.00 for used books… depending on shape they are in and size.  I have Harlequin which I can not sell on Ebay or Amazon as I would have to charge over a 1.00  Both these other stores charge huge fee’s which like any other business I would pass on to you so I could make money. I have a book in both these stores and I also have it in eCrater… You can see the difference in pricing… Check out “Waiting for Agnes by Joe Bullard.. its a new personally autographed book about the Coral Castle in Homestead,Fl. Its the only book I have been selling for awhile… People are not checking out my eCRATER store even though its easy to look at and over 1200 items in it. New and Used Books, audio,LARGE PRINT,Cd’s, collectibles, stuffed animals, flip flops (homemade decorated) We also have a big collection of Nora Roberts, and Debbie Macomber, Diana Palmer,James Patterson,and many more. We have over 120 named authors as well as ones in sections of Romance, Mystery,Fantasy,Religion and more.  We offer you two ways to buy… Papal and money order, with paypal its harder to offer you a shipping discount. But if you trust us..we will send you a refund after we process your order.  With money order we will send you the right bill before you send it… What we offer is When you buy more than one book first or most expenxive is shipping  full price and everyone after is 1.00  … Another deal is if you buy 4 or more books you get one free.. You email us with the choice and we take it off line for you… It must be one of the same or lesser value.

I hope we have answered all questions if not make a comment or email us at   our store is at  or   

You can follow us on twitter or here on our blog if you have something you would like to know about let us know.. we are open to new idea’s we try to follow blog hops… or we might lead you back to another blog that we though was great… Become a regular follower… We’d love to have you on board.. It gets lonely here by ourselves…Come back often and we love comments.

iPhones, Hurricanes and Weatherangels…

Posted by: weatherangel on: January 31, 2009 

So, I’ve come into this with really no information on what I want to write.  Just the expectation from my Mom that I should write something   So I am here to write something.  Something.

Okay, task one done!

I’ve been helping my Mom set up her first blog.  It’s been fun, and the awesome part is that she can finally do so much on her own!  I tried to teach my Mom about computers back in the 1980’s, when I was in middle and high school, learning about computers, bulletin board systems (BBSes) and all the cool things you could do with a computer.  It was only after she met my Dad that she finally wanted to really understand – and I’ve done my best to teach her what I can. She’s been a great student of technology, especially since it changes so fast! I think it has finally gotten “easy enough” for most people to handle, instead of only the geeky people like me.

Recently I have discovered that I absolutely LOVE wordpress.  For quite a while I didn’t understand the love affair with it, but now that it has matured, even my Mom can use it with a fair amount of ease, and only a few questions!  I’ve been able to point her at the docs (not doctors), and she’s found them, read them and understands them (I think).  It’s killer! And that’s Kudos to the wordpress team!

I will probably be jumping on here from time to time, helping out my Mom, and getting things set up.  I may even write a few book reviews, which I’ve wanted to do anyway, but never had a place to put them

Mom wanted me to mention something about what I do professionally also… I’ve been writing Web Applications for 13 years now – which in itself is hard to believe! My most recent accomplishment is being a part of a two woman programming team, and writing Hurricane for the iPhone and iPod Touch. It has been a great challenge, and a lot of fun to watch something we created not only come to life, but be appreciated.

I suppose I should mention that my favorite authors, since this is a book related site. They are Johanna Lindsey, Madeline Hunter, Elizabeth Boyle and Elaine Coffman.  I can thank my Mom’s book store for that one — she handed me my first Johanna Lindsey book about 3 years ago and I fell in LOVE with her writing style, and eagerly await each new Malory searies book!  I’ve spent MANY a night up almost all night reading instead of sleeping.

If there’s anything you would like to see here, just let us know!  And if you are looking for a book you can’t seem to find, just let my Mom know!  She will do her best to track down the book for you – she is extremely good at finding those hard to find books, so just ask!

Over 125 authors in category section I have over 1000 more books to put in..Going to take a brake this week on putting and more books and concentrate on a bottom of a book of shot glasses to go in my store for them at Shotglassheaven. This box has been eye balling me for a while now.. So around 5am I emptied it onto my desk… (I never say our desk) it belongs to Gene too… He just does not use it as much as I do… Anyways have over 30 shots to take pictures of and enter into store..

I would love to write about interesting things we do.. If we did any…Gene made me scrambled eggs with cheese this morning… I called and left a I love you message on my daughters cellphone… She can’t talk while at work so I leave messages she will see when she take a brake or goes to lunch.. Oh went and got a hair trim when I picked up some more books”Waiting for Agnes”.

Well chop chop back to work… Have a great day…
