Comment: Thanks for all the great suggestions. I've read Nora Roberts but not the others. I don't read a lot of love stories, but sometimes you just hit an author who just gets it right. Today would be a great day to read one--hot and rainy and the town is swarming with folks from out of town for the air show. Gonna grab my kindle and read! Susan (brooklynbunch)

Comment: Hi! I laughed when I read your letter because this one was a struggle for me too. I was born in 1973. Thank you for sharing and for the goodies.

Comment: Thank you for your book list! Your email went to my trash, so just a heads up for the future if your emails seems to be missing. Susan Wiggs books sounded like something I would enjoy reading during summer.

Comment: Thanks for the swap. I emailed a description of the Outlander Tour to my wife. She will likely get it and I will read it after her.
Response: There is a second one as well that I just received. It is "Scotland: An Outlander Tour" and it has all the locations in Scotland they filmed.

Comment: Thank you very much for your bee letter and the bee cards. After doing this swap, I realized that I don't do much to help bees. I do, however, avoid spraying pesticides and any nasty chemicals in my garden so that bees can enjoy and pollinate my flowers. You noted in your letter about the marbles, which I thought was interesting. I haven't looked much into May 20th because I just wanted to share my bee stickers lol, but I did not know that this event started in Slovenia. Thank you for sharing!
