Remembering 911

911 came to us all as a great surprise.  It bewilders us to this day,  how this could have happened.  Why?  Then came the next question,  how to prevent it from happening again.  Even if we have to restrict good peoples movements.  We now need passports just to cross from Canada to get into the United States,  something that was not needed in the past.  Before you could get across with a few glances,  a few questions, and maybe not even that.  So,  perhaps the terrorists got what they wanted.  To make our lives more intrusive than ever.

And, to think about it.  How these innocent lives were taken,  who had no, absolutely no affair with any struggle in the middle east.  People who had families, friends, and contributed greatly to society.  It is just because they worked in a building that was a landmark.  That would garner lots of attention on the news.  In my opinion,  if an organization has a beef with a foreign government,  terrorism only helps the foreign government make its case that they are right in their stance.  Blow up our buildings and kill our people.  Well, here comes the repercussions.  Wars that last many years,  pain and suffering on both sides for years later.  War only brings poverty and deficit on each side of the equation.

If a terrorist group is resentful at a certain government,  it does them no good to disrupt other peoples mode of life.  It only breeds contempt at their cause.  It only makes their cause seem without warrant.

And, it all has to do with,  living in each others spaces.  We have to realize we share this world.  Millions of people are not going to move anywhere for anyone.  We have to compromise,  we have to treat people equally and respect the others issue to a point.  Otherwise,  we will have continual war that will never end. Hopefully someday people will someday stop, share, and stop taking advantage of certain situations over other civilizations...  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…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
