Reading Time with Market Friday

A few months back, I had read that the magazine publishing market would grow by almost $3.5 billion in the four years of 2021-2025. While this may not seem like an impressive number to you, it surprised me. I am, without a doubt, a magazine aficionado. Sure, I read much of my news and happenings on the internet, just like everyone else in the world, but there is something to be said about picking up my glossy scuba magazine, holding it in my hands, all the while, the images are swimming across the pages. Many times, the articles are longer than a blip. I really have not become adjusted to Tweeting my news quite yet. Sometimes it works.


Today is #MarketFriday initiated by @dswigle (Denise, that's me!!) Join me as we share our markets across the globe. I always look forward to seeing what you send me! It is amazing to see the different markets and cultures of our friends here on Hive.

For a time, I homeschooled and I cannot help but believe that magazines and even newspapers did a great job, helping my children hone their vocabulary and reinforce grammar, punctuation and pump up their reading levels. They are all techie nerds, in their spare time, and I am not afraid they would have gotten left behind.

We are huge readers in my house. The interests and subject matter is as varied as a magazine stand allows, but, 99% of ours are gotten by subscription. Preordered for a certain length of time usually wins you a substantial discount. I do so love my cooking magazines, and even though I could get it off the internet, the pictures lure me in and I keep those subscriptions coming. Do you get any magazines or do you get your information off the internet?


20211104_162106 MF.jpg


There are many magazine discount sites. After shopping around for years, I use this one although from time to time, I do check to see if a better discount is offered when renewal is getting close. I never had automatic renewal because the renewal price is always higher than what you have already had. So, I usually extend the magazine out for as long as they offer and wait until they offer another good price. The price can seem ridiculously low, but, I have never had a problem with them and I have used them for years. Many offer a digital copy and a magazine, I am not sure how you can go wrong! **Right now they are offering gift subscriptions with a card to announce its arrival, for Christmas. If you have a someone who would enjoy a gift of reading, this is a good place to start! I do get a a few as my older relatives enjoy them. Indulge them!


This is the site: https://www.discountmags.com/

Just remember not to renew any of the magazines when they run out. They will offer you a lower price if you wait at week, two at the most. Patience is rewarded here.


Amazon also offers discounts on their magazine sales and at the same time, the digital version of the magazines are extra cheap because they are signing you up for automatic renewal, so this is what you do: After you buy all the magazines you want and get your confirmation, go into the folder on your account that says “manage my subscriptions” and cancel the auto-renewal on all of them. This was a helpful hint from one of the readers who did get multiple years of discount. Click here for the Amazon link.




STOP!! BRAIN TEASER AHEAD!!


Question:What is unusual about the following words: revive, banana, grammar, voodoo, assess, potato, dresser, uneven?

source


Answer! Can you guess???
Take the first letter of each word and place it at the end. It will spell the same word backwards.

Center Crest.png

Rules of the Road

  1. Go to the market, or anywhere that you pay money for a service.
    Take pictures! Be creative!
  2. Tell us a little bit about the market or the event. What brought you there? What did you buy? How much did it cost?
  3. Post the picture(s) Of course, you should tell a little bit about the ones you post
  4. Use the MarketFriday Community Platform to post #hive-196308 (this is not required, but appreciated)
  5. Drop the link into the MarketFriday comment section so I can find it
  6. Following me and reblogging the post so more see it would be appreciated !! Not a rule, just appreciated, more vision for more views on your posts!
  7. You must put #MarketFriday by @dswigle somewhere on your post. If you don't and someone reads it, there is nothing to tie #MarketFriday to that post.
  8. Please only one post each week. Believe it not, I run out of voting power if you put in many more than that.


20211105_012713MF.jpg


So, there you have it! If a magazine is the way you would rather go, try out both of these sites for discount, or get a discount on the digital version of it. Either way, if you can't get it for free, this is second best! The prices are usually about $4.99 to $7.99 a year.


We currently get 20 magazines sent to the house every month. That is a lot, but, we read them all and when we have finished with them, we bring them to a senior center, where all the residents really enjoy them! There are many way to reuse them!

Please leave the link to your post here so it can easily be found by others. It helps you and me to have them in one place. Where else can you take such a quick trip around the globe? Thank you so much for joining us!! ❤


And just like that, this post is done. I hope you had a good time and learned a little something new. As always, I want to thank you for taking the time to visit, and just remember, #MarketFriday loves you! Thank you for supporting the challenge! Have a most fabulous day! Cheers!!

Before I go, I had to edit the post this morning as I had a gentle reminder from @kemmyb that I forgot my Christmas countdown! Thank you, @kemmyb !! This ones for you! You know I love Christmas! I feel like the closer we get, the more difficult it will be to find that perfect gift. The shipping, the merchandise that isn't getting restocked, there are bound to be shortages. Less will be more this year. More than I expect. :) It's not about the presents my friends, it is about family and friends. In keeping with the Christmas Countdown, I give you one seasonal picture and the day count! There are 49 days 12 hours 37 minutes and 27 seconds.

Sons had subscriptions to computer magazines all no longer published, now for me, no I never have bought or subscribed to magazines, used to read them in waiting rooms such as Outdoor Living or National Geographic.

Money was spent on books, many books over the years Denise. Nice collection you have!

We are book people, @joanstewart. The kids were homeschooled for quite a while and the magazines were a great way to reinforce grammar and vocabulary. Now, most don't read magazines, but, I still get them for my elderly relatives for Christmas gifts. They really enjoy them and don't like the computers all the time. Some, not at all. :)

I used to read them in waiting rooms, but, nobody has them right now and I wonder if they will go back to it? The timing of the pandemic and the sliding sales was no coincidence.

I have sorted through some of the books and donated them to the library. Thank you so much for stopping by!

Magazines over here are still quite popular in Travel, Gardening, Cooking in waiting rooms, sales still happen off stands in most outlets, although not the selection they once were.

Nothing beats the photography and descriptive writing to get ideas in ones own work, I still hold onto a couple I did enjoy that I have been given along with proper books. Most novels and encyclopedias have been donated out into libraries/old age homes to be enjoyed by many.

Times have changed much, younger folk listen to kindle which does not assist in written words to learn new in spelling nor punctuation. We have to accept the new and roll with it, I still refuse to use spell checkers since we were based on the English way of writing, spell checker picks up American English which is slightly different although I notice many now just accept the change becoming confused with what was taught and quick correction in writings.

Magazines still remain a firm favourite especially with the older folk, the smell of paper, being able to quietly page through and read. Have a wonderful day and weekend.

Hello @dswigle! Happy Friday! ☺️ I love magazines too and it's good to know the publishing market will grow to that magnitude. Its been a long while I bought hardcopy magazines because I am so used to reading mine on the internet.

It's only when I visit salons or supermarket that I get to touch glossy magazines! 😄

Thanks for the links to magazine sites and at a discount! Hehe... I'll check them out. I hope you are having a relaxing Friday. I miss the Christmas pictures in this post 😔 but the flower is lovely.

I went shopping for condiments and spice for stew and soups. Here's the link to my post. Have a great day!

I agree with you, I read a lot of them on the internet, but, I still love those glossy shots! There is something about the Scuba magazines and Nat Geo! Love them, and the photography magazines too. I admit it, I read online, for catch up news, but, it will never replace the bold and beautiful photography of the select magazines.

I look at the ones I don't get at the supermarket, standing in line. :))

Check them out. You may find one or two you like. Or even a Christmas gift! I am having a busy Friday, but, it is a nice kind of busy! Hope you are having one yourself! I had to go back and put Christmas in there for you! It was 3am and I really goofed! This morning, I corrected all the spelling errors and added Christmas!

Thank you for dropping the link here!

I never buy magazines myself but I do agree that there is something special about them. It must be the shiny glossy pages and the amazing photographs in them. Sometimes it's nice to just read some quick blurbs of information rather than putting the time in to read a full novel or book.

It is the shiny, glossy photographs! You hit the nail on the head. I do a lot of reading on the internet, but, I still like the amazing shots in Nat Geo and Scuba and many others like that. I guess I just like them both and want my cake and eat it. :))

There are many days I am grateful for the speedy information the internet feeds me, but, it feels so impersonal now, and the news on television is pretty much dismal so often, I try to read it off the internet as informative, not left or right.

Le sigh.

Whatever happened to unbiased truth? I feel like such a dinosaur when I want just the facts, I can figure out how I feel about it, all on my own. Thanks for stopping by! It is always a pleasure to see you!

I used to read magazines a lot, National Geographic and Photography related were the last ones I had subscriptions for but when we were coming up to retirement and planning a move I cancelled them with the thought to resubscribe when we were all settled, but I guess I never got around to it, I will click the link you left and check out what they have and maybe sign up for one or two, its better than the only time I read them now is waiting in a drs office LOl

Those are two of my favorite magazines and the photography ones they just keep on coming out with more and more but I pretty much stick with the few that I have. Nobody can touch National Geographic. They own it! My subscriptions come and go with time and sometimes I renewed them and other times I change over and try something new. It was a bigger deal when the kids were being homeschooled and it was important to me to have them available. I really find that it entices them with their glossy layout and superb articles. They are very much into technology but each and every one of them still sits down and read the magazines. Because the Internet isn't always so great with grammar, especially on different sites, I really appreciate that the magazine industry still uses proper grammar. It solidifies what they were being taught. And while there is nothing wrong with slang I think it's important for them to I know how to speak and write sometimes I think it's a lost art.

I hope you do check them out and I have no idea whether they've gone up in price but the last ones I got which were only a couple months ago we're still super cheap, and if they're not I don't bother. My doctor doesn't have them in his office anymore you know, covid. The office is so sanitized it's scary, and then again it's very comforting. Thank you so much for stopping by and taking the time to peruse the post. You came here early enough to catch all my typos and if I was doing it at 3 and 4 a.m.. I have sense fixed them. Whole world can see now how tired I was last night while I was trying to do it. Thanks so much for dropping your link!

It's all better!

Hello @dswigle, it's been a while have not read magazines. It used to be interesting, not only interesting but it develop your vocabulary as you made mentioned of it.
Thank you for this piece.

I don't just read for funs only. I also learn new words.

I would say that many people here have not, but, that wasn't surprising, Few on here homeschool, but, there is a very nice group here that does. I am sure they use magazines, if not for reading and vocabulary, for projects.

I actually still like relaxing to a magazine or book (sometimes I read the kindle, but, I still like books too!) The internet is a great tool, but, there has to be some time that we need to step away from this all-consuming piece of technology.

I read for all sorts of reasons, but, yes. not only fun! :)

I thought paper magazines are mostly gone or gone the way of electronic.
Anyway, there's a typo in the year 20121

No. Not at all! Paper magazines are alive and well. You have to remember that most doctors offices and reception rooms order a huge amount of them, which of course is on hold with covid. I'm not sure what happened to the subscriptions but I can tell you that during covid oh, the home subscriptions went and I think that has a lot to do with people being home. They were no longer getting their fix at the doctor's office. Thanks for the heads up on the typo and just so you know everybody in the world saw it except for me. I appreciate your time and of course your support! Thank you so much for dropping your link!

Do you get any magazines or do you get your information off the internet?

Nowadays mostly from the internet. I rarely read magazines. But if we talk about books, then I prefer physical books. Both paperback and hardcover. And I read a lot of books. Both in English and in my mother tongue (Hungarian) too.

My #MarketFriday entry for today:

I think that you're probably in the majority with getting your information off the internet oh, and even myself I get a huge percent oh, but there's still something that I like about the glossy magazines. I will say that they became a staple when I was homeschooling my kids. I liked and then to read the articles as opposed to the internet because some of the sites have poor grammar. Not so much the ones that were of the newsworthy type but internet language is very much broken down in the way they speak with each other. Anyway, long story short oh, we are huge for people and have a library full. That is awesome that you can read in both languages fluently.

My kids still read both magazines and books and of course, the internet and appreciate the differences. Thanks so much for stopping by and for supporting the challenge!

It is appreciated that you also drop the link! Have a great day! Greetings from Washington DC!

Well, that makes me happy to hear that! :)) @kemmyb I love the Christmas set of dishes and they were a special gift from my parents for Christmas when I moved away from home. I love this pattern growing up and they gifted me a set! It really is enjoyed by the entire family now.

It says Merry Christmas, just looking at it! It is always a pleasure!!!

I admire you even more now Denise! You are a vouracious reader, how awesome. I have seen NG magazine, woodcraft, scuba.....your kids were blessed to have such a cool mom. I am sure it had a tremendous impact on their vocabulary to have these around

I am an avid reader, as is the entire family! We have always spent a lot of time selecting books that will mean something and magazines that are more than pretty pages. Of course, there is nothing wrong with pretty pages, but, there has to be something deeper, with more meaning... People think I am crazy when I speak of the impact of reading and having these things available for curiosity's sake.

It is fun when everyone scuba dives and likes traveling and tried their hand at flying and jumping... They are an active group and I think their curiosity was born out of reading and being encouraged to do things. Everyone rides horses, and cares for them as well, play piano and another instrument, without sounding like a bragging mom, I am proud of their many accomplishments. It has been fun for them, but, a lot of work.

And PS... Nat Geo and Scuba, along with Architectural Digest are among a few of my favorite magazines! Thank you for stopping by, your words are always a welcome addition to a post.

There are so many studies which show the benefits of reading, I think that it is a blessing to be able to have many reading sources as a kid. It helps the imagination. I remember reading fairy tales, it was so cool, it definetely helped my creativity

Well, I didn't have them for a time, and then, homeschooling the kids, I did bring many of them back in. That time has passed, but, I still enjoy the glossy pictures and the articles in some. I get most from the internet, but, still love the magazines and I donate to the retirement villages or nursing homes when we are done.

And my elderly relatives love them for Christmas!

https://hive.blog/hive-196308/@scribblingramma/green-bluff-in-the-autumn

Hi there! This is the first time I posted to this community, as far as I remember, and I hope I did it right.
On the topic of magazines: My uncle used to subscribe to National Wildlife for me every year for Christmas, probably for 30 years. I really enjoyed that magazine. Right now I only get Victoria magazine, because my sister gives it to me for Christmas. I like magazines, but I don't like the way they end up cluttering my house! So I read them in the waiting room at the clinic, or at the library.

Welcome, @scribblingramma !!! You know I love having you here! I am sure you did fine - and you even dropped the link! Bonus!! It makes it so much easier to find your post!

Magazines were special when I was growing up, and, when I got my own, it was so cool. I had eight brothers and sisters and things tended to be given to everyone, except my aunt... she was one of eight children and understood the need once in a while to get something meant just for you.

Anyway, I love Victoria magazine, I discovered it years back when we were in Phoenix for a year and my neighbor introduced me to it! So lacy and girly and it just reminds me of an era gone by. I wish I could take pictures like that! Oh! A winter project! :))

I have a coffee table and that is where they live. Okay I have one in the Lower leverl den/living room, whatever the heck they call these extra living spaces! This is where the magazines live. You can bring it to your bedroom but, it needs to find its way back and I donate them after one month to retirement villages or rest homes. Boom. New set in, old set out. We read fast enough. The thing is, we are all internet readers too. we just like information and *glossy pictures!)

Thank you again, I don't blame you. I hate clutter. OMG! So, if it ever got to that place, there would be NO more. :)

Thanks for posting in #MarketFriday!

I saved those National Wildlife magazines for years. Not sure why. I finally donated them to the local school, because of all the cool pictures inside. I have troubles parting with the Victoria magazines. My sister has every issue since they first were printed....now that's dedication! (And OCD maybe?)

No judgement here! I give them away ever mobth or two, otherwise I will have too many. The retirement homes live them. I satisfy myself knowing that if I need something with them I can get it online. I still like the magazines but I cannot keep everything and being that is available and it's appreciated where it goes, makes it easier. I do love that Victoria!

I thought that magazines were slowly starting to die out as a trade - the Internet would replace that. But I see that I'm wrong. Great idea to take magazines to the elderly, my dear !!!! I almost guessed the riddle !!!! I thought that the answer was in the mirror image of the letters at the beginning of the word and at the end. the flowers are gorgeous !!!

They are and then again, some staple ones are growing. The internet replaced a lot of the news format magazines, but, the internet will never replace National Geographic, the beautiful magazine that invented glossy pictures. I was wrong too. I thought it was a dying thing, but, I think it will be around for a while. For the same reason people still like books, magazines offer something a little different, away from the constant, addictive screen of the internet. I worry about a world that lives inside that screen. People are less active again, with fewer friends and live interactions, so many are dependent on their internet friendships.

Yikes!

I like it here, but, I have my family and friends in real life. I wish that for everyone. Anyway, I got off tangent, but, magazines offer a peaceful reprieve and I actually used them a lot for homeschooling. @homeedders Quality magazines are a great place to reinforce grammar, Nat Geo touches on history with almost every article, encourages discussions, teaches skills and how-to's and all of my children still read them, although, as I said, we all use the internet, however, need something away from it also.

The Brain Teaser was a tricky one this week. :) Thank you! I do love flowers! Thank you for taking the time to say hello and drop the link!

I had magazines around for my girls, science and National Geographic, mostly. I think my eldest read most of them, but my youngest wasn't as interested. She's always been more the active kind. There came a time when neither would look at them, though. They read everything online now.

Well honestly mine read most things online I have learned to take time off from screen, which is where they indulge themselves with the different magazines from time to time. Pushed her Taste of change as they have and it is more scuba magazines and different equipment to go with it, photography magazines and government magazines discussing different politics. And where would we be in without architectural Digest? So I think that it's fair to say that more people read everything online as opposed to reading both ways. We are huge into Kindles although most everybody in this house likes a book between their hands but have fun with the the ease of the Kindle for most days. I hate to see magazines go when, but of course I will adapt whichever way.

you are absolutely right: reading books is more beneficial than reading anything on the internet as it involves other parts of the brain. just like writing by hand or typing on a computer. when a person writes by hand, it relieves stress and nervous tension. in Israel, psychologists even advised doing this during a period of particularly severe quarantines. and of course no online friendship can replace a real, warm relationship offline

Hi, Sam! @mcsamm Thank you for taking the time to post in the #MarketFriday challenge this week! Always appreciated! Oh! Pineapples? Yummy! You know what? Some of my favorite fruits!

The dishes are only for Christmas. I use them from Thanksgiving, (It is the fourth Thursday in November) until New Year. Soon, it will be time to get them out! :)

I've written the post about using magazines as homeschooling way of studying. For now we buy many kids magazines where my son adore doing different tasks and train reading skills and counting;) I adore reading cool magazines too about history, different countries or great people and their lifestories.

How nice! I never saw it as it is not tagged in any way to connect it to #MarketFriday. I just took a click over on the tag. I didn't want you to think I copied! :) I think that is a funny thought. That is exactly what I used it for. The kids really need time away from the internet, I find it important to have their time balanced with sports, music and reading... and friends. Well, that is a tiny part of it, but, now I will be reading yours, but, they are all reposted and I will read most tomorrow.

Thank you for participating in #MarketFriday and dropping your link. :)

Haven't read a magazine for a hundred years. I remember we had a very popular magazine Liza in Ukraine. Very interesting. Now there is no trace of him (

[email protected] Well. if I hadn't homeschooled my kids, that would probably be the case with me, but, I am lucky I did!!! I used magazines for many different areas and didn't want the internet to be so prevalent in everything they did. They all are highly tech-savvy and needed the time away from that to become well-rounded.

Is this the one you are talking about?

Funny, I was just telling our youngest the story of how I got scammed (in a Zayre's parking lot, no less...lol) by a cute guy when I was around 17 years old. He was selling magazine subscriptions to help pay for college - remember when that was a thing? Long story short (too late), I never did get the magazines, but he cashed my check (which had my home address and phone number on it). And I knew better, but couldn't resist the allure of those glossy publications... (yeah, that's how I'm spinning it 🤣).

I got out of the print media habit back about a decade ago, when we downsized to move into a camper fulltime, and even after moving back into a "normal" house about a year later, I didn't feel the urge to pick it back up again. Though your beautiful photos are certainly tempting.

Oh, and here's my contribution this week (which started off as a contribution back in September 2019...lol!) -

Hope you have a great weekend ahead, and given the season, may you always have brandy tea to warm you when you're chilly. 😄

Those were the days, weren't they? Even as late as 10 years ago they were still selling magazines and parking lots and going door-to-door. Can you believe that? Like that hasn't been done for the last seventy years? I can remember when I was a little kid college students coming to our door and wanting my parents to support them through college or Peace Corps or or or. There's always something. I'm pretty sure if he was not so cute it wouldn't have been a big issue and you'd still have that check. So funny you little hottie!!

You can spin it however you like, me and the cute dude know different.

I think people are misunderstanding me and this entire family is huge on everything online. I mean I was young but I can remember trash80 and I have one. I think they came from Radio Shack in quickly upgraded to 286. So I've been around computers all my life oh, but there's still something about those glossy pictures and the feel of a magazine. I like to look at the photography once in a magazine that I can bend the pages and take them with me. I still love looking through National Geographic and I love the the different scuba magazines that we have. I have lived in a trailer and guess what? I did that with the three kids and we spent a year homeschooling and Road tripping . We saw every state there was and we studied each one too. I pay so little for the magazine said it's worth it for me to indulge in it, and then after it's all done, we go donate them to retirement villages and rest homes. It's a win-win. Wait I'm getting an old contribution? Isn't that sort of like recycling except not? I mean it's sort of recycled because you were going to put it out but you didn't so I guess it's not. Okay we'll call it a draw. LOL I can hardly wait to see it. Will I recognize you? Oh my God, skip the tea and just throw that bottle of brandy over here. I won't tell a soul. I was just put it on the blockchain. Good night my friend, the post will be read tomorrow as I have the whole day off. Mazel Tov, yes?

Thank you so much for taking part in emerging Friday and for leaving your generous comment and yes I forgot to tell you I do know all about Zayre's. Did you forget I lived in New Hampshire? Anyway thank you so much and I appreciate you dropping your link and also for sending the traffic my way. Bless your heart! 💖

I grew up with these magazines, they were my link with the civilized and modern world. These magazines were hard to get in communist Romania but they found ways to bring some of them and they were shared among friends. For this reason, I remained an admirer of the magazines. Of real magazines, made of good glossy paper, with beautiful photos. I prefer magazines to websites.

Denise, forgive me, I haven't replied to your comments for more than a week. I've read them all but can't find the time to reply. Thank you for telling me the name of the park in Blow-up, it is a great joy for me to know that.
A little while ago I posted for the market if you want to see it: The last, or rather, the most recent fair I went to!

My cousins in former Czechoslovakia used to get magazines from my family in a roundabout way, never straightforward. National Geographic, Life magazine, and something with current events.

I prefer magazines to websites. Besides, how much time can be spent on the internet? All-day? No communicating with others, sharing a picture? You can share internet pictures, but, there is something about breaking away from them and doing other things, seeing people, communicating in real life, not just a friend in the cyber world.

Don't worry about the comments, Dan! @bluemoon I wrote them for me (for you to read) not for you to feel guilty about adding another layer of words on it. Of all people, you don't think I know the lack of time a little bit? I am the Queen of running out of time on a daily basis. Oh! Went to the park when I was there, mostly to see where it was filmed. :) I am glad you were pleased with it!

I saw the market when it came in with those big leather, very traditional looking shoes! I think I voted it, but, know I reposted to read tomorrow. I usually vote them all in one day, but, there are so many, I split it so that there is more voting power for tomorrow. Then everyone gets a little more this way.

Thanks so much for the dedicated support to #MarketFriday! I appreciate the words and dropping the link! Even flowers!!!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Putting the link is a way of announcing that I posted. I noticed that you already saw the post, so the link was superfluous.
I take it your roots are in Czechoslovakia? Although there are not many affinities between Romanians and Czechs, the latter being more under German influence, I have always been an admirer of the Czechs. Because of the movies. The beautiful girls! A bit plump, white skin, brown skin, blue eyes... Well, youth!

You were in that park!!! That park still gives me a huge thrill, just thinking about it, I never imagined you were there. Especially since I thought Blow-up wasn't a movie in your area of interest.

Time? You said something very true here, and I think I write primarily for myself, so it doesn't matter if often no one reads it. All the more reason to be glad there is a similarity between us. It is a great pleasure to know that, that someone is similar to me, someone who has a different life, a different culture than me. That we can appreciate each other, even if we have never seen each other and probably never will, but that we sometimes think sympathetically of each other. Thank you!

PS A, see what rewards you get every day for your blogs. Splendid! If anyone deserves it, it's definitely you!

I am really glad that you did put your link because the people that are new haven't gotten into the habit of it so I have to go search. One didn't tag it in any way but she told me she posted for me. Incidentally, it's not even a #MarketFriday post. LOL

My roots on my mother's side are strictly French and one of my grandmother's sisters married a Czechoslovakian man and moved to Bratislava. Because it's two Generations from me I'm not sure why they moved to Czechoslovakia as opposed to staying in France. I have to admit when I went to Bratislava, it was a pretty little town, but nobody can honestly understand love, I didn't try. They were very much related to us and their family, and when they escaped the country in the middle of the night, my grandmother took them in, and less than three months later they were deported back. I don't remember that time but I can only go by stories. They were always our cousins because they were related to us and my cousin escaped in the late seventies and went to Canada from Australia and again ended up in our vicinity canvas deported just like his father before him. He was able to do this twice but his whole family is punished in ways of having things taken away from them including a house and given another one in the country. I'm sure you know the mechanics of that kind of punishment better than I do. Letters are scarce and phone calls are even more so. I remember that I was there for the Velvet Divorce. Prague in the morning with all the rioting and went to Bratislava in the afternoon to complete the changeover. I was trying to think hard of the dates in the late 70's early 80's that he left Bratislava, but, at the time, dates, but at the time, so much was going on in the world
The movie, I had gone to see with three of my brothers. It is not something I probably would have chosen myself but sometimes it's just fun to go because of the company. I sent them a postcard from there to tease them. :)

I agree that you have to write for yourself first because otherwise, you would be second-guessing exactly what everybody else would like to hear instead of putting down your thoughts exactly as they come out. I can remember when you were getting very good payouts and thinking how cool that was, but from my own experience, it comes and it goes, so I enjoy it if it happens. I know you know what I mean. Thanks so much for being such a good friend and don't worry so much about what's you miss or if you don't have time to answer. I used to stress myself out about it and have come to realize that I can only do what is humanly possible for me. My friends will understand. You have always been forgiven of my shortcomings when I can I answer everything or I answer so late. I would say we are good! Stop being so hard on yourself. And don't forget, have a most amazing day!

#MarketFriday loves you!

The family all dives and a few flies and part of the inspiration to do these things came from those big, glossy magazines! :) Anything is possible when you are growing up and it is up to you as a parent to present the opportunity to make some of these things possible.

Sometimes something comes of it, sometimes not. You make good points! Thanks so much and I hope you have a wonderful night!

#MarketFriday loves you!

I well remember the old National Geographics when I was a kid, but I am surprised that there is still much interest in them. I really thought they were falling victim to the digital age much like brick and mortar stores largely fell victim to Amazon. I could not even begin to remember the last time I bought a magazine.

Oh well here is my stretch to get a Market Friday post in.

Are you kidding? Everyone still loves Nat Geo! I get a magazine day every week here. I still love them and you know I love surfing the web just as well.

There is something about getting off these machines and living in the carbon world for a little bit. People have fallen victim to being so dependent on the internet. Kids nowadays move from the bedroom, where they are sitting on their computers to down to watch movies, to back upstairs watching surfing the internet.

Thanks for stopping by and leaving your words and dropping your link! Much appreciated!

LADYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

hehehehe

here is my post! LOLOL cuz i'm a dingbat - hahaha (also - i didn't see the tag in the post - and I WILL add it in - i think i did tag you but I'm not sure if I used #marketfriday - so i will add that right away too! don't you worry - i'm so good for next week now! LOL)

ok first off - we are a homeschool family too - i think you and i talked about this before hehehe but we NEVER used magazines!!! hmmm and I'm wondering why we never did - this would have been a great addition to our curriculum!!!

but I myself did get some cooking magazines for a while and I loved them!!!! There is something about seeing it in the book that just makes you want to try it -right???

We got the um... Cooks Illustrated - and then we also got... America's Test Kitchen i think??? i think that was the name! We might have gotten Food and Wine for a bit too!

but i always loved drooling over those pics hehehehe

I don't think I'd do it on Amazon though - there is something about holding the book that I love. those glossy pages feel so nice too heheheheh

Thanks for being patient with me on my first market friday! heheheh I really hope I can get out to take some pics for next week too hehehehe

love you lady!!!

Haha! Good on you! The first link I gave you was NOT Amazon. It was a cheap site that I have used for years. I got Cooks for a steal and I am not sure where we got America's Test Kitchen, but, it might have been them. The link for Amazon was for magazines, not the book site.

The magazines were a great addition to the curriculum, for sure and I am surprised some people are adamantly against them, they read on the internet, boom. That is it.

You did really great on your first #MarketFriday! I still have people that have been here for years that don't drop a link. I will bet about 20 people haven't dropped their links yet. :) It just makes it so much easier, you know what I mean!? It is going to get cool (read cold tonight!) I hope nothing freezes outside! Do me a favor? Hmmm? I am in my jammies, it is almost 2 am.... could you run outside and bring in my spider plants, basil, parsley, geraniums... Oh, just what is on the porch Whatever is in the ground is staying there. Chop! Chop! It is going to get cold tonight! Too far?

Le sigh.

It is always something, yes? :)) Hey you! Have a great night and I am off to post and Sweet Jesus, I am trying to get a little sleep tonight!

Good night! Love to you!

#MarketFriday loves you!

Hi there, @dswigle sorry for my late @marketfriday I have been in travel mode and only got back home today so, I was able to put one together for you.

I use to get car magazines at one point and did love them but as time when on, I sort of had no time to read them anymore and now get everything of internet when needed but, I get what you mean the pictures were always a catch for me 😊

Have a great week @dswigle here is my link 😊

Yes! There is just something about having it IN YOUR HANDS! We no longer buy or subscribe to magazines (here in SA they have just become way too expensive) but my favourite was also the cooking and then a local travel/wild life/cooking magazine. Reading opens worlds to children that a screen never could do. IMO. What a selection you have Denise. Is Scuba a wild life magazine?
