Northern N.B. job losses.

If it was not for the pulp and paper industry leaving town, the recent government cuts in the Department of Natural Resources and our civil service, have left us we less jobs . They are going in opposite direction to FDR's job creation plans during huge unemployment. I am sure, even the Department of Transportation will do with less as well. A Power Plant closure nearby, leaves a town with even less tax revenue coming in to its coffers. The local Brunswick Mine, which employs approximately 900 jobs will be shut down come 2013.

Our towns in the north, were one horse towns. One, or two, driving industries behind the economic drive here. There seemed to be little plans, during the good times, to make things bigger or better.

What does it take, to expand an area or to make it grow bigger? It takes a good salesman.

A good salesman, is someone who can look into your area and see huge benefits to companies that want to move somewhere. This person, unfortunately, has to be a politician. There is absolutely nothing wrong with investing in the North. It is a great place to live, and we have one of the most beautiful Bays in the world. It belongs to the club. I know someday, the jobs will return to the North. Someday, the area will gain predominance again as an economic engine of some stature.

But, for now, we wait... 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"
