I am sorry to say that I only just got the ad for this Holiday Cookbook. And I can't find it anywhere. Why do you have to "Sign Up" everytime another eCookbook is offered? How can i get this?
safe journeys

I was able to download, save and view the cookbook on the first try. Perhaps those of you who are having trouble need to update adobe acrobat or your drivers. I wish I could be more specific.

We're checking on what could have happened. You should have seen the download page before you ever came into the community. We'll post a link soon to take you directly to that download page.

Go to the bottom of the page and click the "Feedback" link and describe your problem to them. Hopefully the techs can sort it out for/with you.

I am happy you are finally able to get the cookbook. Hope you enjoy the holidays. Have a bite for me.
Told you the meds were making me loopy. Not 1 bad joke.

It doesn't work for me. It opens the PDF, but the book has a bunch of empty pages or pages with just part of a recipe on it. I had two error messages on it before it actually opened. One said that it was not recognizable by the user.

GabbyPA 2010-10-28 09:10:07 -0500 Report

Actually we are putting together a Holiday Cookbook for everyone. I have not tried the links, and I have let John know that there seems to be a problem. We will get it ironed out for you...don't despair.

Be careful. It may be a virus, Idenity theft, a scammer, a way of trying to disrupt the site, or a practical joker. It may be a webmasters nightmare. or just a glitch.
I wish you luck with the book.

I don't know what it is. I am having trouble typing today maybe thats it.
I hope you get your book and I'm sorry you have had trouble.
I found 6 errors in this. I need to check my typing.
Yep, small screen keyboard, small type, short stylus, rotten speller, falling asleep, and bad eyes. Bad eyes, bad, bad, go to your room. Don't you give me that look. GET!
Havent slept for 21 1/2 hours. Hey thats cute.

Guardian stone No drugs just meds. I really can act like a lady, promise. 3 more errors. tsk

I am sorry. The light buld shorted out.
I'll try harder. Good morning. 09:00

What? I'm confused. Hey, enlarge your print in lower right hand corner of the screen if you have windows/internet explorer. You should see a magnifying glass icon. If not, go to the top of your screen (empty space) right click and add "status bar" checkmark. A bar will appear at the bottom of your screen with the magnifying glass! It really helps the eyes relax - no more squinting! Get some sleep! It's supposed to cut down on your appetite if you sleep, I think, six hours or more. Have a nice day!

you are taking for granted that she is accessing DC on a PC. Many ppl nowadays logon on with one of the "smart phone" apps. From what I hear it is different than on a Windows machine.

Good point. We could be talking about a very small screen here. If you could enlarge the text you might only see one word at a time! Ha. Thanks for the comment.
