  1. Share your memories

    I've met so many friends here! You, Michelle, Kell, Nollaig, Abby, Kat, Chrissy, Kylie, and so many more! I remember drama with certain members, fun contests, banning spammers, the Jane Austen group read...but most of all, I remember the amazing support of the BCF members.
  2. General questions / discussions

    I can't say enough about the tremendous job you have done over the years, Michelle. I was honored to be part of the Mod team, and I have met some lifelong friends here on the forum. I'm sad to see it go, but I'm excited to be part of the future of BCF. The community that has been created here will last for years to come!
  3. Your Book Activity - July 2018

    I finished Song of Solomon on the bus this morning. It was so magical! That book is going to stay with me for a long time. I have no idea what to read next.
  4. Given that so many of us are dealing with heatwaves at the moment (90F coming this Sunday...oh, joy), I thought we might share some of our favorite hot weather food and drink recipes. Something that helps you beat the heat, so to speak. Me, I love a sweet iced tea or lemonade, cold grapes from the fridge, a peanut butter and honey sandwich with a cold glass of milk, or I just wallow in the heat and eat tacos, enchiladas, or quesadillas. Love me some Mexican food! What are your hot weather favorites?

  9. What's the weather like?

    We had a bit of a reprieve from the heat the past 2 or 3 days, with temps in the mid-70s, but starting today, we're back up into the high 80s and 90s.
  10. Your Book Activity - July 2018

    I read Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Cafe by Fannie Flagg over the weekend, and I absolutely loved it! I've always loved the movie, but the book went so much deeper into Idgie's and Ruth's relationship, into the way race relations changed in the South over time, and I felt like the characters were better developed. I just started Song of Solomon by Toni Morrison last night, and I'm really enjoying it so far.
  11. Red River Valley - folk song of unknown origin
  12. What's the weather like?

    It's been hot. The last 2 days were 90F, and today is 85. We got our portable air conditioner installed in our bedroom, so we're much more comfortable at night, at least. But the heat makes my joints ache for some reason. (maybe I'm just getting old)
