Christmas is passed, time to do other tasks!

Reading an article from Misty Harris this morning, from Postmedia news. He indicated some numbers, which I find, for myself, are hard to find. These are some of the facts he dished out on the 24th edition of the local news papers article.

Amazon announced this year, that it was selling 105 E books as compared to 100 paper books on its site.

The industry as a whole, E books now account for 1/4 of U.S. book sales, and 20 % by volume.

Most people, believe there will always be a mix of sales. Of the hard, and of the E format.

80 % of people predicted making more purchases from their E phones.

And, from that E phone, you can control your homes heating system, lights, ect, all from it. Some people believed it would eventually replace the wallet.

It just goes to show, how far technology has come, from using a VIC 20 or Commodore 64 in the early 80s. I used to love the programming of those machines, as we as kids, could change some of the programming fairly easily.  Just a few stats up there, to start your day.

Today, will be relaxing, and maybe trying to work on my Part 2 this afternoon. I have some visitors here, so, I maybe late at working. As I have said before, it is great, not to have a deadline with this stuff. Although, I was always the type of person to try to finish my work ahead of time. It is just, the way I am geared. 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…
