What I think Antiquarian means.

Antiquarian is an association of book appraisers, that know everything about the value of a book.  Mostly older books,  that are in great shape, get great value for the units sold.  Especially first editions.  My book was listed at a seller with the used value 2 times higher than the actual retail price.  Sometimes, Antiquarian associations could try to make money off of a new book if they feel the advertising has not been there for it.  They essentially feel that it can actually make money, so they take a educated gamble on it.  They can buy several copies, and drive up the market price.  When this happens, other book retailers soon follow suit to drive up the price.  It happens if they think a book is unique, has some sort of artistic value,  even if it is new.

I am unsure if this is going to happen to my book.  All I know it is happened at a Canadian book retailer already.  It could be something else,  maybe a sales ploy by the retailer themselves.  Will it work throughout,  and get to other countries.  If so,  I will be holding on to my few copies of the book,  as their value will go up in time.

But,  I do not believe it yet.  It could be just a spark,  not a flame.  Till then...

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
