The karoaoke craze!

Karaoke has been around since vhs tapes came out in the 90s, with the words to the songs. Then, a few Christmas presents came around, and we tried it out. Some songs were too fast, like 50 cents rapping style.... Some were too slow, like Willie Nelsons  Blue Eyes Crying, in the Rain..

No, those two songs were not on the CDs... Too bad, they are great songs... But, the machines were sent back. Too much static coming from their systems. You could hear a hum, that emitted from the speakers. Something was out of wack. Then, we bought a 40 dollar American Idol box. We found it alright at first, but it seemed the microphone volume when singing did not increase or decrease over the increase or decrease over the background music. I think they want to keep it, due to being fed up with returning things. They seem to find it works better than the other machine. Maybe it is our TV set speakers that are not working right.

Fads.. American Idol, the X factor, the voice... When will people get tired of these reality shows... I am starting to find, that the voices are much familiar to popular stars already singing out there. Can they flood the market with singers?  Is there enough room for several voices similar to Madonnas, or Neil Diamond? I cannot answer that question right now, as I am so tired from working a night shift. But you get my drift. Same goes for the Vampire series.. When will people finally give it a bone to suck on... Maybe, they will last forever... and ever... That is the thought for the day,  have a good one,  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"
