About Cheating the Hog: Echo needs a miracle. She's turning fifty, lives with her gun-toting mom, and her lover's been killed in a logging truck accident. She made front page news as a Salvation Army bell ringer, but that job ended and she's digging for change to pay off a gambling debt. The local sawmill hires her to do cleanup and odd jobs, like 'cheating the hog'. But on the first day on the job she realizes this job could kill her. When tragedy does strike, she leads the other women mill workers to fight back…earning her respect on the job and the attention of a strong-hearted man.
Rae Ellen Lee was raised on a stump ranch in Idaho before moving to Butte, Montana. She received a degree in landscape architecture from the University of Idaho with which she worked for the US Forest Service designing clearcuts to look like natural clearings. After traveling around the US and Caribbean, Lee has settled in Bellingham, Washington. She is the author of four books: I Only Cuss When I'm Sailing, My Next Husband Will Be Normal, The Bluebird House and Cheating the Hog.

Helena Cribbage Club #25 invites you to learn how to play one of the most popular games in the English speaking world!
Cribbage is a card game that is played with a deck of standard playing cards and a signature piece of equipment called the Cribbage Board.
According to John Aubrey, cribbage was created by the English poet Sir John Suckling in the early 17th century, as a derivation of the game "noddy". While noddy has disappeared, crib has survived, virtually unchanged. The objective of the game is to be the first player to score a target number of points, typically 61 or 121. Points are scored for card combinations that add up to fifteen, and for pairs, triples, quadruples, runs, and flushes.
Cribbage holds a special place among American submariners, serving as an "official" pastime. The wardroom of the oldest active submarine in the United States Pacific Fleet carries World War II submarine commander and Medal of Honor recipient RADM Dick O'Kane's personal cribbage board on board, and upon decommissioning it is transferred to the next oldest boat.
Oh yeah and games, don't forget Unreal and the board games.
