I tried the Cinnamon Rolls this weekend.  They were so good, I made another
batch right away.  You gotta try them.......

I started a starter on sunday.  Its seems to be coming along nicely.  I'll try
your method when I'm ready to make my first loaf.

I have a Regal.  I don't think it was because of the type of machine.  I was
thinking that it could be the sour cream we get up here in Canada.  Maybe its
not as moist as the cream available in the States.  Anyway, the next time I try
a receipe with sour cream in it, I'll watch it closely and add extra water
when/if needed.

I guess the lesson I learned was that water is a variable and when ever I try a
new receipe, I should watch the kneading to make sure the dough is moist

I'll send you the receipe for the starter given in the Bread Machine Magic if
you don't already have one/it.

Thanks, everyone, for your responses.  Bread Machine Magic looks like a
wonderful book and of the receipes I've tried (Cinnamon Rolls, Chili Burgers
and Jalapeno Bread) only the Jalapeno Bread failed (I should have watched it
more closely).  The Chili Burgers seems to be very practicle for the busy
ninty's family.  Give them a try.
