Corrected copy Craig His prophecies have been studied with an eye to world history. It's a strange book so I thought it would be good for Librivox to have a link to it. The annotator started making predictions while translating the book and everyone has followed suit. The History channel says. How ...

Re: Yellow Ink Cartridge

Oh Tricia, the solicitation by Staples to write a review of a yellow ink cartridge just touched my sense of the absurd! :lol:

To fulfill it's mission
It begged to meet my printer...

Etc.
