Cars that can drive themselves.

Last night on the CBC news, they were showing cars that can drive by themselves. A piece done by Paul Hunter. 15 years ago, while talking to co workers, I mentioned that someday this maybe the case. The co workers said I was talking foolish. I thought that they were thinking behind the times. Now, by 2020, we may not have any choice but to drive a car that can drive by itself. It showed a few models from Volvo on last nights show, driving by radar and following vehicles on a highway. Ford also showed its system of parallel parking, while you still had to push on the brake when going back into the space, change gears, then go forward to brake again.

The only thing that the article worried about, was what would it do to someones driving over time. With less practice at the wheel, would we become less of a driver. When the system does not work, would we be as ready to drive and take the wheel.  In the fog, it showed the cars during some testing could create accidents. It would be difficult to believe that these systems could work good in bad weather. Albeit, the system is coming and they say people will have it, ready or not. Will it really reduce accidents to 99.8 %. The industry thinks it will.

Besides that, I have now 210 friends on twitter. It is an advertising haven. But, how effective it is, is unknown to myself until another month or so goes by. I wish I would have been on twitter a year ago. I am just learning the ropes now, and have allot to learn. It is easier to get a brand awareness out there now, for my book. It is good for people who do not have deep pockets.  Have a good afternoon,  till next time...

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"
