Tilled my Fathers Garden the other day.

I tilled my fathers garden the other day. The ground, was not froze at all, for Northern NB. Exposed to have snow and ice pellets tomorrow morning, then changing into rain.  My dad always said, only after the first week of June, gardens are normally planted. This is when you are sure to have no heavy duty frost in the morning.

Green beans, butter beans, carrots, onions and cucumbers are usually the norm in our garden. We are not too much into the potato thing, but many farmers up North plant allot of potatoes and they do have great crop yields. Only if a blight comes, too much rain and fog, does thing goes sour for the gardens.

By tilling the garden the other day, makes it a little less work in the heat for myself, later on. I found it was hard, as the soil would get hard packed, when tilling it in the first week of June. In the late fall, when the bean pods get a rust on them, we shell the beans and make a pot. Those beans are delicious, with butter, salt, pepper, and an onion boiled down in water.

Well, time to go to work... Have a great day, thinking about your gardens.. Till then.

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"
