Worst snow storm yesterday!

That was definitely the worst snow storm we got all year. The year is not over yet, but happy that it is nearly over for the snow. Yesterday we got about over a foot of snow, but the drifting made banks of 4 to 6 feet high in some driveways. The blower works hard, and you have to slice the high banks with a shovel to knock the snow down. Most snow blowers cannot dig into banks that high, you will plug your chute and the snow will collapse over your machine.

It is a wet snow, somewhat. Which makes it even harder for some machines to blow it. When it is a soft, cold snow, it is light and fluffy and the machines can easily propel the snow far onto the side banks.

I did allot of advertising on twitter today. I have 44 friends, some ranging from artists that paint murals, Opera singers, actors, musicians, and business people, and ordinary good people. I rarely go searching for people to join, as I just advertise for my book during the morning, evening, and at night, and when people see the tweets they come a calling. I am unsure what effect it will have on book sales. Up till now, probably none. It will be interesting in the next few weeks to see if it does, create a new awareness. Or, is that awareness of my brand just lost on greater brands of awareness.

I heard that the writer of the bestselling book The Help, was turned down 60 times by literary agents. They all told her, her book would not sell. Then, after the 61 th try, it was taken. She was always told that a story about racial segregation in the South would not sell. A story about Black Caretakers in the south, who did work for Whites and took care of their children. They had a washroom for the whites only, and for the blacks only. Strange world, back then. At any rate, her book was a best seller and made into a movie. Good for this woman, Kathyrn Stockett, did good. And she continues to write. Another thought for the day, never give up. 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…
