Bad news yesterday. Freezing cold here!

We all heard of the bad news. The music industry has lost one of its top pop icons, if not the greatest female pop icon, Whitney Houston. A spectacular stage presence and a magnificent voice. I will always remember her, as probably many of you also will, in "The Bodyguard", film with Keven Costner. Too many number one hits to list, she will be greatly missed.

The temperature is exposed to go down to minus 30 here in Northern NB Tonight. I am not sure to blow the driveway tonight or not. I could wait until it warms up a bit, as the gate is not built up with snow too badly. My neighbor came over and got the sidewalk area, where the most of it gets dumped in with the passing government plow. It is weather like this that got everyone dreaming of Florida, or even going to Columbia for a visit. Get into the sunshine and the tequila. Ah, but there is no break, as the job has to get done up here in Canada. I am not sure when to go on vacation, but maybe in March I may take a step into a foreign land... If things go well. For now, I wish you all 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"
