I just got this in my email as a suggested product to buy: Puttin' on the Grits.

Just had to smile.

OMG! We have a real-life celebrity here in our midst. I am truly humbled to be in the presence of greatness.  :)

When are you going to completely write your own book? Or better yet, shoot some videos as PSAs (Public Service Announcements) like those from the good ole days? Or how about a movie (comedy) about appropriate southern etiquette and food?

Ya know, the possibilities are endless if I were your manager. You and I together could become bigger than Martha Stewart and Paula Deen combined! We could take this world-wide and start a revolution! Make our own flag...make you the face of southern living across the globe!

Okay, I went off the deep end.

Seriously, though...congratulations on being published.

The wife and I go late mornings also. We don't go to anything in the 9 or 10 a.m. hours but we do like it when we can go between 11 a.m. and noon. We'll stop by our local Speedway gas station to stock up on sandwiches for the movie and so I can get my coffee. Gotta love wives with big purses! At the theatre, we get a large drink so we can get free refills on them if we need to.

The odyssey you describe is cool in your transformation to reading on tablets. I think it was really cool what you could do for your father and mother-in-law and help them enjoy to read again with their eyesight issues. I didn't realize that e-readers could do all that for people.

You couldn't pay me to buy a theater. Every time I go there's only like 10 people.

I love going to the matinee showings precisely because of the few people there. I love having free reign (almost) as well as the cheaper price of the tickets.

I just did... 12 variant products all listed tonight. We'll see how it goes but I fully expect these to be sold out before Christmas.

I am old fashioned. I want a physical book to read. Never did care for reading a book on a computer much. If what I'm reading is a report of some kind, I'll go to campus and print it out there (only nice perk about being an adjunct instructor...free use of copy machine...pay sucks).

I'm doing really well so I can't complain. But seeing all these "woe is me" threads makes me want to rub it in. I'm trying to be a calmer, gentler Leroy this time around. I doubt it will stick, but at least I'm trying. :)

Yes, we did receive early notifications in previous years, albeit not as many and not as early as this year.

My fees are paid through PayPal also and I got both messages. After I figured out I didn't owe anything, I just ignored it.

Sounds like you got a good deal. We have DirectTV and the wireless DVR system. We have the main hub and every other television has a really small black box (not much bigger than the box that a new men's wallet might come in). I can't complain coz I can start a movie in one room and continue watching it in another room. I can bounce around the house all day like that if I wanted. But the big clunky DVR boxes? Nope. No more of those things. If I get rid of DirecTV, it will be because I cut the cord.

Yes, you just keep smiling while I get all of the invoiced orders. I guess I'm gonna have enough money on my next invoiced disbursement to buy you and a couple others at least one Corona.  So I guess the drinks will be on me to some extent  :'(

I am liking this. I wonder how long this can stave off implementation and collection of other states' sales taxes?

I heard about this the other day. I guess TiVo didn't completely protect all of its IP so that is why cable boxes came into being much faster than they otherwise would have. It is no wonder Amazon is jumping at the bit to create their own recorder.

BTW, does anybody still use TiVo or cable boxes?

Because each and every one of them lacks business sense. Sometimes things are cyclical. Sometimes something is mentioned on tv that spurs sales. Sometimes the listings themselves are crap. Sometimes it is price. Sometimes it is keywords (or lack thereof) burying search results.

I've avoided those threads for the last few weeks because I get a little tired of answering the same questions with the same answers. Hell, a couple times I did a cut-and-paste for one of my answers among several threads. Maybe its time I go back and raise some heck.

I'm now starting to get more invoiced orders. Received 2 more. Invoiced disbursement amount is now at $24.84. If this keeps continuing, this won't be a pretty picture

After my cut of the disbursement, I wouldn't have enough money to pay attention

I am not a part of any FB groups or a follower of Reddit but I have heard about these "services" that will get someone un-suspended for a bunch of money. This seems like it might be a better way to go if I get somewhat larger.
