It was at a love spinning that I saw kester first. And if in these new fangled days, when strange inventions crowd upon us, when I hear tell there is even a machine coming into some parts of the country for reaping and mowing, if those mayheppen will read this dont know what a love spinning was, they shall hear in good time. But though it was jancis beguildys love spinning, she being three and twenty at that time and I being two years less,yet beginning at the story I have set out to tell


(I pretty much spelled all the words right, but I dont believe in commas or hyphens, soooo whatever.)  YOUR TURN!

I typed about 55 wpm with 11 mistakes.   (Making excuses...this keyboard letters A and S stick and throw me off in typing quickly.  And every once in a while, my fingers swap letters around on me;  teh instead of the, which I usually catch as I type.)

To begin with the old rigmarold of childhood. In a country there was a shire, and in that shire there was a town, and in that town there was a house, and in that house there was a room, and in that room there was a bed, and in that bed there lay a little girl' wide awake and longing to get up, but not daring to do so for fear of the unseen power in the next room, a certain Betty, whose slumbers just not be disturbed until six l'clock struck when the wakened of herself' as sure as clockwork,' and left the household verry little peace afterwards. It was a June morning, the room was full of sunny warmth and light.

Thanks Lee, that was a very good idea and a lot easier that actually retyping everything. I got the same as Lee did.

Madame la Marquise looked at the ring, then once again up into his face. He nodded assent, and my heart seemed even then to stop its beating as I gazed upon his face. Had we not, all of us, heard of the gallant Scarlet Pimpernel? And did I not know, far better than Mme. la Marquise herself, the full extent of his gallantry and his self-sacrifice? The hue and cry was after him. Human bloodhounds were even now on his track, and he spoke calmly of walking out again in the streets of Lyons and of affronting that infamous Laporte, who would find glory in sending him to death.

In fairness, I am on the computer, typing, a good 10 hours out of every day. This was even kind of slow for me lol.
My husband makes comments all the time: "why are you 'angry-typing'" or "hey take it easy on my keyboard; I'm supposed to inherit that when you get your new computer. I don't need you burning the thing up."

I used to be a whiz on the 10-key at my last job when I did that for several hours a day, but I've since lost that.

It was lovely, thought Mrs. Miniver, nodding good-bye to the flower-woman and carrying her big sheaf of chrysanthemums down the street with a kind of ceremonious joy, as though it were a cornucopia; it was lovely, this settling down again, this tidying away of the summer into its box, this taking up of the thread of one's life where the holidays (irrelevant interlude) had made one drop it. Not that she didn't enjoy the holidays: but she always felt - and it was, perhaps, the measure of her peculiar happiness - a little relieved when they were over. Her normal life pleased her so well that she was half afraid to step out of its frame in case one day she should find herself unable to get back.

Not many people remember Lamprias now in Athens. But his company is still talked about in the Peoloponnese. ask in Cornith or Epidauros, no one will have heard of him; but down in the Agolid they will go on about his Made Herakles, or his Agamemon, as if it were yesterday. I don't know who is working his circuit now. At all events, he was in Athens when my father died, and owed him more money than anyone else did.

I'll take it given most of the mistakes were long Greek names.

There were six of us to dinner that night at Mike Schofield's house in London: Mike and his wife and daughter, my wife and I, and a man called Richard Pratt. Richard Pratt was a famous gourmet. He was president of a small society known as the Epicures, and each month he circulated privately to its members a pamphlet on food and wines. He organised dinners where sumtous dishes and rare wines were served. he refused to smoke for fear of harming his palate, and when discussing wine, he had a curious, rahter droll habit of referring to it as though it were a living being.

The steamer, Sestri Levante, stood high above the dockside, and the watery sleet, carried on the wind blustering down from the Black Sea, had drenched even the small shelter deck. In the after well the Turkish stevedores, with sacking tied tound their shoulders, were still loading cargo. Graham saw the steward carry his siitcase through a door marked PASSEGGIERI, and tunned aside to see if the two men who had shaken hands with him at the foot of the gangway were still there. They had not come aboard lest the uniform of one of them should draw attention to him.


On a serious note...(me, serious?? OK haven't had my coffee kick in yet...)  somewhere in the 60's wpm is about my norm.   And I still have that sticking keyboard problem.

   Ooooo!  Not what you are thinking!  Get your mind out of the gutter.  This is an older keyboard, and I have 4 kids who, regardless of several warnings against doing so, tend to eat, drink, and compute, causing the keyboard to get grimy.

Jo was the first to wake in the gray dawn of Christmas morning. No stockings hung at the fireplace, and for a moment she felt as much disappointed as she did long ago, when her little sock fell down because it was crammed so full of goodies. Then she remembered her mother's promise and, slipping her hand under her pillow, drew out a little crimson-covered book. She knew it very well, for it was that beautiful old story of the best life ever lived, and Jo felt that it was a true guidebook for any pilgrim going on a long journey. She woke Meg with a "Merry Christmas," and bade her see what was under her pillow. type here

of course there was a Great House at Allinton. How otherwise should there have been a Small House? Our story will, as its name imports, have its closet relations with those who lived in the less dignified domicile of the two; but it will have close relations also with the more dignified, and it may be well that I should, in the first instance, say a few words as to the Great House and its owner. The squires of Allinton had been squires of Allinton since squires, such as squires are now, were first known in England. From father to son, and from uncle to nephew.
