Watched Will Ferrells show "Everything must go!"

We heard the songs about it. Country songs, Sammy Kershaw, "Yard Sale", and George Jones "Closing of the door".  This is when the other half leaves, without even recognizing you are alive. They lock up the doors, and you find everything gone. This happens quite often, in the journey in life. To our friends, and sometimes to ourselves.

"Everything must go", is one of those shows, where Will Ferrell as Nick Hasley loses his job mostly over his problem with alcohol. He finds his credit cards do not work,  and finds his furniture on the lawn as well, with the door locked into his home. His wife has left him as well, over his crazy behavior. His so called buddy, a police detective, gives him 5 days to get things in order and to leave the lawn. Do a yard sale.

In the time he sits around his lawn over these few days, he makes friends with a young boy on the street. Emptying beer cans becomes his passion. He also makes friends with a woman who is pregnant across the road, who he confides in. He tries to find something to hold onto in his past, as he checks out an old flame who had a crush on him in earlier life.

This show was a extreme low budget production. There are no fireworks, no spaceships buzzing around Pluto, and no lasers blasting from mega guns. This show, I would give it a 6.5 on 10. Will Ferrell does, actually show a part of his acting (the more serious part), very well. If given a different serious role, I am sure he could garner an Oscar. But, the show drags on. It is not totally surprising, and does not leave you with that "Ahhh" moment. But, it does portray a part of life where many people go through, tough times. And, they are no where near fun. Just to get a restart, a new job, is a tough job in todays economy. I feel for this guy.

Besides that, not much new on the book front. I got 162 friends on twitter. It grows by 5 a day, approximately.  Have a good day,  till next time at the theatre..

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"
