The last weekend for snow shoeing.

It maybe the last weekend for snowshoeing in Northern New Brunswick. It will be plus 10 tomorrow, then plus 15 C tomorrow. The snow will take a beating, as I would not trust the rivers or lakes to cross at this moment in time. Ski doos will be hitting the trails in the last hopes of getting in that last drive, through the many thousand km's of groomed trails throughout the Northern part of the province.

While eating at the Atlantic Host in Bathurst on the weekend, we seen the Ski Doo transport, with all the logos on it in the parking lot. There, they had brand new machines for people to check out. They are some beautiful, and fast. But why would you want to go fast, when you have an incredible view of white gold and some beautiful trails surrounded by trees. A typical ski doo, brand new, may cost starting from 12000. Then the suit, helmet, and trail pass. 1000 dollars maybe for a ski doo suit and helmet, and trail pass at 200 dollars. Then there is registration, and insurance for your machine. It is a fun sport, and maybe if things go well, in the future I may buy a Ski doo. You can rent them in some areas, for 300 dollars approx.  for a day rental and you can rent a suit and a helmet for 35 dollars in some areas.

For now, I will stick to the cross country skiing and downhill skiing. I may have a chance to go out this week, if there is any snow left. Have a good evening, 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"
