Dragon dictating program

Hello, I have been investigating the above software. Too late for this book, but I am thinking of using it for the next book, which will be a nonfiction historical book. Does anyone have this? Do you like/not like it?  Also, is there another program that is better. I have a PC?

I am in editing process of the book. Tedious work, but necessary. One page at a time and it gets done and that much closer to being published.

Hi, Wow, did anyone see Jupiter the night before last? It was just beeping along a mere foot from the full white moon as clear as a crystal. Fall is such an awesome time of year. The cool weather makes me want to bake. I made homemade Chai tea today and drank it with hot milk in it. It was wonderful! Now, I can have a Chai tea latte without feeling like I am eating mouthful of sugar. I made it with Splenda and used less than the recipe called for and it was delicious.

Sunday morning memory

Hello, It is a beautiful fall day back in the Virginia country. This is truly a day of rest. I made a no fat, no sugar cheesecake, tested it and found it not quite sweet enough. Used Sevia instead of Splenda. Apparently, the later is sweeter.

Edited writing. Tough Job as I seem to change much, but did start getting into the story so it peaked my interest and I have managed in my wisdom to accomplish what an ancient poet romance writer desired--to be just one of the herd. Good place to be.

Snow, Goblins, and the King's Speech

Hi, well, that was a first for me, five inches of snow in Virginia in October. It was beautiful but wet, heavy and damaging to my beautiful Pine trees. I did love that crisp snow smell and the crackling in the woods as my dog and I went walking. Anyone have any history on whether that was a record for that time of year in Virginia?

I love Halloween. Saw my grandchildren off to trick or treat with white faces and blood dripping from their mouths all decked out in the latest Halloween Bag. Love colors orange and black. They were school colors.

Lastly, I just saw the Kings Speech...Awesome movie. So tender and great acting. Anyone have a comment. I know I am late, but I don't seem to watch anything until its on DVD.

Book is progressing at break neck speed, but the slowest part is yet to come--editing, editing, editing. Anyone know any good, editing programs that are not rip offs and you can download for free or at a reasonable price. PLEASE let me know. thanks, gail
