Seen the show Red Tails!

Watched the show Red Tails today. A film from Lucasfilm. Taking us back to the flying aces of 1944, during the second world war. During this time, the race barrier was still there and this is what this show is about. Not only trying to win a tough battle on the field, but a group of black flying aces trying to gain acceptance for their capabilities as being equal to the white squadrons. Based on a true story, this all black squadron had some of the best military records for the military squadrons during the war.

It is hard to critique a movie like this. I would say, that Cuba Gooding Jr. is better in cop flicks, or comedies. As a serious role as a captain, is just not his cue. There is allot of hype, and fast breaks during the conversation ( reminded me of my own writing), which is probably alright for certain genres but not for a show like this.

Yet, it is a historical film. And, I have allot of respect for a film like this. I think young people can learn, allot from a film like this. So I do think it does go beyond a rating. Good job, as the intent was a well placed one. Have a good night,  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"
