Snow tires are on!

Bought some snow tires today. 640  dollars plus taxes in Canadian for 4 new Michelin X-ice. They say the are good. Not the best, and I know what the best tires are, Nokian.. Not nokia, the phone maker, but Nokian. A company from Finland, are rated number one in so many digests, that it has to be true.

They have the best, winter tire out there. And, they have, the crummiest price. Approximately 800 dollars for a set of 4, for a 14 inch rim. I wanted to get the BF Goodrich, but the convincing was not there enough to convince the other half that the price is right, at 540 dollars taxes in.  I think the ratings are alright, and I would have bought them because of the price, and because I personally like the thread on the BF Goodrich.

The wife liked the thread better for ice, which is what she got with the Michelins. With the milder weather here in Canada, it probably makes more sense as we get more freezing rain conditions than normal. I hope this year is a more normal winter weather for the snow mobilers, and the down hill ski operators.  Tourism depends on the white stuff, as well as the famous Bonhomme Carnival in Quebec city in the first two weeks of February. It Actually starts at the end of January, and here is a link to the site. I believe in Quebec they made it law to put on winter tires for the winter season.  I still believe, that if you are a person that does not have to go out in poor weather, and only go out in the sun and when the pave is dry, and you do not speed in the winter, all seasons will work fine. But, that is just my opinion.

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"
