    i love magazines. I dropped them all for a while but subscriptions are so cheap now that I'm getting more and different magazines. I dropped the newspaper, after fifty years, so we are enjoying the magazines. Door County is a favorite along with Victoria, Southern Living, Reader's Digest (have you all noticed how skinny that mag has gotten? It's about 1/3 what it used to be.) and I recently found one that I love. It's Blue Ridge Country and is about all the towns close to the Parkway. We get ideas about places we'd like to visit from reading those magazines. Then when the new magazines arrive, I can pack up last months and drop them off at the nursing home.

    My husband gets a cold and you would SWEAR that he is dying. But a couple of years ago he was having extreme abdominal pain and it took me forever to talk him into going to the ER. It turned out that he had a bowel obstruction and had to be flown to a larger hospital in an air ambulance. And men say they don't understand us.

    I hate magazines because they make for more clutter than I am interested in dealing with and, I swear, they are gross biohazards! All kinds of nasty people hands touching, and touching, and touching. How many of us, when buying a magazine, go to the back of the stack to get one that hasn't been handled? And they slide! I hate magazines as about as much as I hate the post office...which is A LOT!!

    Yes, I prefer books that I can buy and limit to, usually, my own germs and overhandling! Magazines are just in the way. I don't have enough ADD to be that interested in them. I want a story that I can really get into and think about. I even wipe down any books I may get from the library. Those can be pretty nasty, sometimes.

    And I am not a germaphobe, like the little nasty kids at the community center like to accuse me of being!

    Muduh, have you heard of Garden and Gun? It's sort of like Southern LIving but better. Not as great recipes as SL, but I love the stories. It's all about the South if you can't guess from the title.

    And Readers Digest has become more of a Readers appetizer. Heck, I remember as a kid, we made Christmas Trees out of them by folding the pages and then spray painting them green. I bet now you couldn't get a 1/4 of a Christmas tree out of that pitiful sized thing.

    A long time ago the Readers Digest slogan or motto was a story a day for a month.

    Could you give me some information about Reader's Digest?

    The slogan used to be "An article a day of lasting significance." Somewhere or other that slogan was dumped and so was the policy.

    I remember folding and spray painting the Readers Digest. Mine were painted gold.

    I also saw a copy of 'Garden and Gun' the last time I went to get my hair done. Sounds like something Jeff Foxworthy would have come up with. How much more redneck-y can it get? And, no, I did not pick it up and flip through it.

    That's just it, it is NOT rednecky at all. It's a really cool magazine. It's like Southern LIving and a hunting magazine. It's actually pretty cool.

    It's not. You've got to see it to believe it. It's like upscale hunting stuff.

    . . .It's like upscale hunting stuff. . .
    Isn't "upscale hunting stuff" -- how you say in English? -- an oxymoron?
