The Happy Country standings are out!

The Happy Country standings are out. Denmark achieved number one. Canada, my own country, number 5. Number 11, the United States. Places in Central Africa ranked low, as people were asked questions and ranked their happiness out of a scale from 1 to 10.

It is easy to see why people would be happy, and unhappy in a country. If you have: shelter, food, water, and work, then you probably live in a happy country. On the other hand, you can have all of the above, and if you have corruption and violence, and live in fear, then maybe your country is unhappy.  This is what the study is all about, to measure the many countries of the world. And, possibly to provide a scale or a ranking to determine how to make things better in the countries that are having a difficult time in developing. Changes take allot of time, and it takes powerful forces to enable change in countries that are war ravaged and corrupted. Stability comes first. Then a country can grow. Trade and business can flourish under a stable rebuilding program. Focus on a countries strengths, and let their people make it work. We will see what the next few years, or decade may bring. Hopefully more peace and happiness throughout the world.

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"
