Computer Password

A new employee calls the help desk to complain that there's something wrong with her password. "The problem is that whenever I type the password, it just shows stars," she says. "Those asterisks are there to protect you," the help desk technician explains. "So, if someone were standing behind you, they wouldn't be able to read your password." "Yeah," she says, "but they show up even when there isn't anyone standing behind me."

From our readers

Dear Peggy Jo,
Thank you for publicizing my book Her Sacrifice it took many years for me to complete. Now, with Amazon, it is in circulation. I would like the people that downloaded the book during last week's sale to take the time to fill out the review form so that I can see what the general public thinks of my book because I am in the process of writing another.
yours truly,
Francine LeGrove.

He put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our God. Many will see and fear, and put their trust in the Lord. "

Scarab Club

THU 2014-12-04
Free! Literary Detroit, Wayne State University Press and the Scarab Club invite you to a celebration of Literary Detroit's two year anniversary! We'll be celebrating the occasion with a unique, interactive event, based on a story in Monica McFawn's award-winning new collection, Bright Shards of Someplace Else. One of the stories in the collection, "A Country Woman," tells the tale of an elusive woman who seems to have all of life's answers. Now you have the chance to ask this character your deepest questions!

Simply visit countrywomanadvice.wordpress.com and ask the Country Woman a question--any question. Part magic eight-ball, part Ouija board, and part friendly neighbor, the Country Woman will answer your question in tones both mystical and down-home. Forget Dear Abby, ask the Country Woman!

But to hear her answer, you'll have to attend the live event on December 4, 2014 at 7:00pm at the Scarab Club. Monica McFawn will read the answers to all questions she received in a lively performance, followed by refreshments and a book-signing. Don't miss this chance to hear an award-winning writer's original response to your question in the guise of one of her most memorable characters! Book-selling services graciously provided by Pages on Livernois.

Presented as part of the Booked @ the Scarab Club Series

Sailing Singles Happy Hour at Masters Restaurant
Sailing Singles

WED 2014-12-10
To get into the holiday spirit, the piano bar will start at 7 pm where we can have a sing along but you can come as early as 4 pm to relax and catch up on all that is going on after all the Christmas shopping. The Masters Restaurant is a rather unique place. The structure itself resembles the elite clubhouse in Augusta, Georgia where the famous Masters Golf Tournament is played. The extensive menu includes a variety of steaks and chops, chicken and veal dishes, fresh seafood, and many other delicious plates and dinner specials are featured daily. Although this is a "happy hour" usually we all have dinner that is top notch. You do not have to reserve a place just sail in and join us. Pay your tab only.
