They are exactly what I would have picked for myself! You are very sweet to send me two! I appreciate it. They are a great addition to my collection. I hope that we get to swap again. This was a great idea for a swap!

I've looked at it a few time but never bought it - the John Grisham book I've read the most times (about 4) and which was well translated into movie format is A Time to Kill; the most confusing book-to-movie was The Runaway Jury, and the one I enjoyed the most was The Testament although Skipping Christmas was adorable. Thanks so much!

Response: You are welcome. Thank you for the rating
Comment: Thank you for sharing your street. It looks so beautiful and quiet. Nothing like my street at all
Response: You are welcome. It really isn't too bad. It is busy - being the main street Sometimes gets annoying when you have the front door open, and you are watching TV, and the red light on the corner makes the big rigs stop and go! LOL But sure is close to everything! Thanks for the rating
Comment: Thank you for the decorations and thanks for your help. I didn't get it right away, but my boyfriend eventually had to help me. I still have an issue with posting large pictures though, but at least it works!
Response: You are welcome
When you search for pictures - say you are looking for Kawaii. and you type in "Kawaii"
Right before the images show up there is a line that reads:
"Web Images Videos Maps News ,etc
click on "Images"
You will see a line (in the same place) that reads:
"Image size" "Color" "Type" etc.
click on "image size"
Then click on "Medium" - that is the size you use for the comments and in your profile
Use "small" if you want to use a picture when you host a swap. Hope that helps

Comment: Thank you for the fbs, but I was confused by which swap was yours as I host quite a few private swaps on facebook. You should include a note with your name and swap-bot user name to help forgetful, and high volume swappers like me! :)
Response: I always add a note. I write my notes first and then add. I have cut open envies i have sealed already to include a note I forgot to insert! I have run into the same problem myself with received swaps, as I am high volume swapper myself - only to find the note in between things like FB's, and the like, lost in them. Thanks for the rating

Response: You are welcome.. It is like racing. Nascar changed also from the way it started but as good as ever!
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful postcards. I have not seen this Marilyn Monroe pc. Handmade envelope? Please tell me where you got your template.
Response: You are welcome. Glad I included one that was new to you. Yes i made the envy. I used to use a pattern, but with large envies i do not any more. I just use a 12 x 12 sheet or a used calendar page. If there is a lot of excess in the long end I cut the excess off and save it for future use. I put the articles on the paper (centered) and fold over the long ends (bot of them, pressing down to make a crease. Then I turn the page, unfold, and fold the short ends over. Remove the contents and cut the excess corners off. Then put down, put the contents back in, seal the long way, (sometimes i use double sided tape, sometimes packaging tape - depending on how heavy it is) and then the ends Thanks for the rating
Comment: Thank you for the wonderful cards! I especially love the extra large ones. I used to buy large ones like that back in the 50's and 60's but don't see them available any more. I also love the cupcake note pad. Thank you for the awesome swap!

Comment: Thank you for sharing! I've never tasted this kind of pie before, but I am curious to try :)
Response: I hope you like it. It is easy and cheap and I love it. One of my daughters makes it with half a small can of drained peas and carrots. A daughter-in-law has used the same recipe substituting ground chicken and a few different seasonings.
Comment: Oh! When I saw the hot footprint cutout on the South Padre Island postcard, I thought "how appropriate!" That's where I got blisters on my feet from walking barefoot on the beach! haha

Response: You are welcome Glad you liked my choices. It is a shame that so many srtists and authors end up that way

Unicorns in the Bible?
by Dr. Elizabeth Mitchell on February 6, 2015...
To think of the biblical unicorn as a fantasy animal is to demean Godâ€™s Word, which is true in every detail.
Some people claim the Bible is a book of fairy tales because it mentions unicorns. However, the biblical unicorn was a real animal, not an imaginary creature. The Bible refers to the unicorn in the context of familiar animals, such as peacocks, lambs, lions, bullocks, goats, donkeys, horses, dogs, eagles, and calves (Job 39:9â€“12).1 In Job 38â€“41, God reminded Job of the characteristics of a variety of impressive animals He had created, showing Job that God was far above man in power and strength.2
Job had to be familiar with the animals on Godâ€™s list for the illustration to be effective. God points out in Job 39:9â€“12 that the unicorn, â€œwhose strength is great,â€ is useless for agricultural work, refusing to serve man or â€œharrow (plow) the valley.â€ This visual aid gave Job a glimpse of Godâ€™s greatness. An imaginary fantasy animal would have defeated the purpose of Godâ€™s illustration.
Modern readers have trouble with the Bibleâ€™s unicorns because we forget that a single-horned feature is not uncommon on Godâ€™s menu for animal design. (Consider the rhinoceros and narwhal.) The Bible describes unicorns skipping like calves (Psalm 29:6), traveling like bullocks, and bleeding when they die (Isaiah 34:7). The presence of a very strong horn on this powerful, independent-minded creature is intended to make readers think of strength.
Courtesy: Domenichino, Virgin and Unicorn, [working under Annibale Carracci], Fresco, 1604â€“1605, Farnese Palace, Rome)
The absence of a unicorn in the modern world should not cause us to doubt its past existence. (Think of the dodo bird. It does not exist today, but we do not doubt that it existed in the past.) Eighteenth century reports from southern Africa described rock drawings and eyewitness accounts of fierce, single-horned, equine-like animals. One such report describes â€œa single horn, directly in front, about as long as oneâ€™s arm, and at the base about as thick. . . . [It] had a sharp point; it was not attached to the bone of the forehead, but fixed only in the skin.â€3
The elasmotherium, an extinct giant rhinoceros, provides another possibility for the unicornâ€™s identity. The elasmotheriumâ€™s 33-inch-long skull has a huge bony protuberance on the frontal bone consistent with the support structure for a massive horn.4 In fact, archaeologist Austen Henry Layard, in his 1849 book Nineveh and Its Remains, sketched a single-horned creature from an obelisk in company with two-horned bovine animals; he identified the single-horned animal as an Indian rhinoceros.5 The biblical unicorn could have been the elasmotherium.6
Assyrian archaeology provides one other possible solution to the unicorn identity crisis. The biblical unicorn could have been an aurochs (a kind of wild ox known to the Assyrians as rimu).7 The aurochsâ€™s horns were symmetrical and often appeared as one in profile, as can be seen on Ashurnasirpal IIâ€™s palace relief and Esarhaddonâ€™s stone prism.8 Fighting rimu was a popular sport for Assyrian kings. On a broken obelisk, for instance, Tiglath-Pileser I boasted of slaying them in the Lebanese mountains.9
Extinct since about 1627, aurochs, Bos primigenius, were huge bovine creatures.10 Julius Caesar described them in his Gallic Wars as,
. . . a little below the elephant in size, and of the appearance, color, and shape of a bull. Their strength and speed are extraordinary; they spare neither man nor wild beast which they have espied. . . . Not even when taken very young can they be rendered familiar to men and tamed. The size, shape, and appearance of their horns differ much from the horns of our oxen. These they anxiously seek after, and bind at the tips with silver, and use as cups at their most sumptuous entertainments.11
The aurochsâ€™s highly prized horns would have been a symbol of great strength to the ancient Bible reader.
One scholarly urge to identify the biblical unicorn with the Assyrian aurochs springs from a similarity between the Assyrian word rimu and the Hebrew word reâ€™em. We must be very careful when dealing with anglicized transliterated words from languages that do not share the English alphabet and phonetic structure.12 However, similar words in Ugaritic and Akkadian (other languages of the ancient Middle East) as well as Aramaic mean â€œwild bullâ€ or â€œbuffalo,â€ and an Arabic cognate means â€œwhite antelope.â€
TO THINK OF THE BIBLICAL UNICORN AS A FANTASY ANIMAL IS TO DEMEAN GODâ€™S WORD, WHICH IS TRUE IN EVERY DETAIL.
However, the linguistics of the text cannot conclusively prove how many horns the biblical unicorn had. While modern translations typically translate reâ€™em as â€œwild ox,â€ the King James Version (1611), Lutherâ€™s German Bible (1534), the Septuagint, and the Latin Vulgate translated this Hebrew word with words meaning â€œone-horned animal.â€13
The importance of the biblical unicorn is not so much its specific identityâ€”much as we would like to knowâ€”but its reality. The Bible is clearly describing a real animal. The unicorn mentioned in the Bible was a powerful animal possessing one or two strong hornsâ€”not the fantasy animal that has been popularized in movies and books. Whatever it was, it is now likely extinct like many other animals. To think of the biblical unicorn as a fantasy animal is to demean Godâ€™s Word, which is true in every detail.

I had so much fun with this swap
Comment: I love that you sent all local PA groundhogs I returned some NY ones. Its such a fun holiday and I hope to someday get to see Phil and I really want 2 pressed pennies from thee to make into earrings ;) Happy early Groundhog day!
Comment: Thanks for the postcards. I especially love the Harry Potter cards. I don't collect used cards but appreciate your thought. Maxicard is actually a postcard with a postage stamp placed on the picture side of the card where the stamp and card match or are in concordance. Guess many people still don't know that since I keep getting really big card. Thanks also for decorating the envelope with fun stickers~
Response: You are right - I was wrong. Guess they are just oversize cards. Sorry bout that. Would you like me to send another card - from your preferences - to make up for it? I have no problem doing so. I have also marked your print out sheet of mine reflecting you do not collect any used card for if e are partners again. I often get cards I can't use, don't want or duplicates but to me there is no such thing as a "Bad" postcard LOL
Comment: Wow! You absolutely spoiled me rotten with this thoughtful, and amazing gift! Thank you so much for everything, I am truly grateful for all the thought and love you put into it....and to add an anniversary card too was just delightful! My hubby LOVED the currency you sent, as did I, and I've already spied several recipes from the cookbook I can't wait to try. Thank you so very much!
Response: Made my day to know I made two people happy. (You and Hubby)! Glad you liked everything
Comment: Thanks for the interesting P&P p.c.'s. It surprised me to see two new ones, but it is always nice to have an extra for when someone doesn't send the one before or it gets lost in the mail, or something. Thanks for the Angel Christmas Card, too. So sweet! â™¥ ~ Cari
Comment: So pretty! We don't get much down here in south Louisiana, though when it /does/ decide to get cold and icy, the city shuts down! *laughs* Give us hurricanes and we don't bat an eye. Give us extreme cold, and we don't know what to do! :)
Comment: I love the vintage cook booklet and recipe cards that you sent me. Lots of great recipes in this booklet and I cannot wait to try out some for the Christmas season. I love vintage and picking this booklet was wonderful. Denki. Happy Holidays and a great 2016!!
Response: So glad it finally made it to you and you liked my choices!
Comment: I agree: I never specified what PCs I wanted via my profile. The ones you sent are GREAT! I never knew that the Pennsylvania State Capitol looked like that. I believe you sent me my first PA postcards. Thank you so much! (I recently updated my profile. After being on swap-bot for this long, I finally managed to figure out what I would like to receive). Thanks again!
Response: You are welcome. I have gotten some great postcards b having things listed in my profile
Comment: Great cards for me, Ann -- thanks for the nice selection! I had missed the Jefferson Memorial in DC when I first visited 30 years ago, but was super glad to see it 2 years ago when I finally got back that way.
Response: Just picked the Washington ones up when i went on this years Veteran's bus trip. Can never see enough of DC!
Comment: Thank you for the cards - they arrived today! Glad it didn't get lost in the mail a second time! I really like the Showboat card - believe it or not, that's one musical I have never seen! Have a wonderful holiday season!
Response: So glad they got there. Sorry you never received the other batch

Response: You are welcome. We have been lucky. Our weather has been beautiful up until yesterday. This morning it was 23 degrees at 5 AM - but much better than snow LOL
Comment: Wow Ann, I LOVE my package with 10 Items of Blue. Talk about going above and beyond...I really can't thank you enough. Not only did you send a bigger envelope BUT it's also clear you read my profile and tailored everything to me...including treats for Lucy and Grunt. Just wow. It was such a fun surprise and well worth going out to the mailbox in the rain to get ;-) Thank you again so much! P.s...what is Haluskie?!
Response: Glad you liked it! Haluski is a Polish dish made with cabbage and noodles. Really good!!
Comment: thank you for the cards and magnet. I still plan to widen my choice of cards, but it is quite wide, not really specific:) and I still look for the advice how to manage the page design nicely - i dont know how to use - so i have only plain text:(
Response: You are welcome. I haven't figured out how to do the profile page right yet either!! LOL
Comment: Thank you Ann for the Non-USA PC showing Dolomites. Was amazed to learn about Florida that there are dolomite deposits on the north east side of Lake Apopka a huge lake to the NE of Clermont. Hope to go view the Lake this Autumn. Happy October!
Response: It is amazing what you can learn from a postcard isn't it! ? LOL You are welcome
Comment: Hi Ann, Thanks for the great set of postcards! The bunny suicides are some of my faves, as you seem to know. The fish net drawing is very intriguing. You mentioned not being sure what a flip book is- here's a link:

Response: You are welcome Glad you were happy. Try to mark down when someone marks something down. I try to make people happy!
Thanks for the link to the flip book. I grew up knowing them as "Flick books" Thanks so much
Comment: Hello, i was looking for the rating for swaps 175 as it was int the note but it was 179 so i got confused. So the rating is finally here i identified the swap now, thank you for great selection of cards:)
Response: Sorry about my goof. Glad you liked them
Comment: Wow! You blessed me with amazing bookmarks and the darling extra Mary Englebreit postcard.(And it is a girl cutting paper dolls, one of my favorite childhood memories.) The lyrics on the back of the touching 9/11 bookmark about God's peace are so wonderful and of course the Pixar Cars bookmark makes me smile big time! I'd give you 100 hearts if I could. Thanks for making my first bookmark sway so terrific!
Response: Made my day knowing you enjoyed my choices!
