Blowing snow at minus thirty makes you want to get into the house in a hurry!

Europe had a long cold spell in the minus 30s as well. We had it, every so often, a stretch of a few days then back to the somewhat milder weather.

In minus thirty weather, your hands get cold, right to the bone. Your face feels like it is going to fall off of your head! This is when it is windy, and blowing... And if you get some snow in your face, all of this may occur at a much faster rate. My friends in Russia know what I am talking about. It is important to dress very warm, when treking in Canada or to the North Pole. I had to switch gloves twice tonight, blowing snow in the cold wind. You come in, to take off a cold pair to put on a warm set. You just hope the utility does not lose power to your house. Then your hot water heater will become a good place to store beer! Well, that ain't so bad, isn't it now..

Besides that, my twitter is growing at a good rate. I have 24 friends, so far. I am following 80, or so. It is not bad, as I see my friends on face book nearly doing the same thing as I am on twitter. Just posting up daily habits and information. Well, time to go. I hope you all have a good night. Nothing new on the book front, but I should call Chapters to see if they sold any of my books yet. I may go down beforehand, to see where they placed them in the store. With my luck they taped them to the ceiling fan!  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"
