can't promise that you won't come up with titles I've already used,
some of you practically share a brain with me. Remember, I've already
written two books in this series so chances are good. I hope that if you

or compliment and not insult or theft.

Quote of the Day:
the lady on whom you call is not at home you must leave your card. If
she has grown up daughters or a sister living with her, two cards
: or you may slightly turn down the corner of your card, which signifies that the visit is paid to all."
~ Etiquette for Ladies 1850
