Strange how things are not so apparent

I remember doing a small blog on the song, Pumped Up Kicks!  The song has a really good beat, and, without knowing the lyrics, I thought it was a song about kids playing and such. This song was done by, Foster the People.

But, I guess it was about an unfortunate shooting event ( I am guessing fictional), somewhere where this Robert kid goes on a shooting spree. And, you cannot outrun bullets, and he has a quick hand. Some people I know, who are very sensitive (care bears?), once learning what the song was about, stopped listening to it. I do not think they should stop listening to it, as you cannot shut your ears off to, this sometimes violent world, or ignore what is going on out there at times.  If we pretend the problem does not exist, how can we correct these situations.

What we have to do, is to be more accepting, of everyone. Bring them into your circle of friends, even if they are not normal or not up to a certain standard. The only standard people should have, to receive a hello, or a handshake, is that they are human. I remember just getting a hello from someone, a stranger, on the street, sometimes does a world of good. Courtesy, does a world of good. When I watch videos of people walking in the big cities, it is amazing how they pass by thousands of people in an instant, and probably not receive one hello. It probably would burn people out to do it there, and this is understandable. But, in a less traffic of an area, a hello is a nice thing to do. Back to the song..

I still like the snappy beat, and, I personally will listen to it now and then. But, it sure does not make me a happy camper, any more. My thoughts of a soccer field are gone, kids playing, my original thoughts of the song.  It will be put in the classification to my dreary tune list. I got a few of them too.. That is all..

Besides that, not much new. I will try to do a little bit of book correcting today for Part 2. It is still windy here, and the snow will come tomorrow in full force, for Northern New Brunswick. I hope you all have a very good afternoon, 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"
