Blog is up 33 % already, from its best month of last month...

Thanks for everyone for following the blog. It is up 33 % again, for the 3rd consecutive month in a row. I am working some day shifts, unfortunately I do not have much time to come on here and try to put some different or common perspective in this grand world of ours.

I know in Part 1 in my main book ( I am sure everyone caught it), the workers were always looking for raises, albeit, maybe 25 cent raises, whenever the employer or the boss was up against the wall.  These are small raises, and perhaps, with no union, not much bargaining power at the floor level.

We see this throughout the world sometimes. I know here in New Brunswick, they are thinking of creating a lower minimum wage for those who have tips, and a higher minimum wage for those who do not have tips. This was a concept, that, quite truthfully, that I would have never thought of. They may have this in other provinces, but probably very few.  The minimum wage in N.B. is scheduled to go up in the next year or so.

A minimum wage difference may indeed cause more workers to apply for certain jobs over other jobs. Maybe, a higher wage minimum wage job will cause more people not to go into the hospitality sector. In my opinion, in an attempt to stagger a minimum wage cannot be an advantage to everyone. If an another business sees this working, would they also put a tip jar in front of their business as well. What would classify these other businesses, nonetheless, as not having a fair crack at that lower minimum wage in all fairness. I think all business should pay the same, but, that is just my small opinion. Is this policy about governments not being able to commit to its promises across the board?

In my book, an unavailability of some people to do the job right, or to be on the job at all, led to wage increases. We always hope for better times ahead for the all workers ( and companies too), so he can bring more home, produce more for the company, and just be all around much happier and comfortable with living. 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"
