Back from Parents place during New Years!

I spent two days at my Parents, for the New Years Eve and Day yearly visit. I cooked a ham, boiled it first for 2 hrs and a half, then put it in the roaster for another 2 hours. The glaze for the ham, was a tsp of mustard, a half tsp of tumeric, a quarter cup of brown sugar, a cup and a half of water, a quarter cup of the ham juice ( it was salty, I could not use much).  But, it turned out good. I was, quite amazed by myself. It was not sugary, as allot of ham glazes are sugary or maple in taste, if using maple syrup. I liked the less sugar taste, more mustard taste better.

I was working night shifts during this time. I, am burned out. In French, do they call it, brule?  I suppose if it was a creme brule, it would really mean a person is right toasted right out of her, with no energy left to keep your eyelids open. I am brule. Sleeping only 4 hours a day, for the past 2 days. I hope I can catch up on my sleep today.

I need to get back into correcting Part 2, Rise of the Market Overlord. It seems so far to be going good, and hopefully will continue that way. When I work nights, I rarely get much done during the day. I am zonked out of er.. 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"
