Good morning world!

Yesterday got equal visits from Russia and the United States! Russia is now number one visitor on this blog! Thanks for coming over to you all. I sent the newest book cover, the other day to Dog Ear Publishing. It was sent at 400 DPI, at 9 or so MB. We tried at 600, but it bounced back, that perhaps they could not receive a 15 MB file..  But maybe something went wrong on our end. I talked to the graphics people, and they were satisfied with the 400 DPI book cover. It cost the same as staples did, at 6 bucks. This time, they e mailed it instead of putting it on a disk.

I figured, that maybe the person at staples did not know how to run the machine, as it was at 99 DPI, when it arrived at Dog Ear. So, I lost 6 bucks... I will go back and just talk to the people there, as their people should be trained properly also. I blame it on the management, if anything. They sometimes hire people, and this happens everywhere, where they are not trained enough on the machines settings. They just need a little more training. That is it. Problem solvo.

Exposed to snow here today. Then a big storm for Tues. / Weds... Has been 5 days since I sent away Part 2, already. Time flies. It is hard to believe that it does take 5 months to publish it. All that needs to be done, you would think, is the proofreading, the grammar, and presto. A little bit of glue, cardboard... Oh but, what do I know.. All I know is time passes by fast.. Soon will be on the shelves.. Have a great day, 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…
