Part 2 is all over the world.

The "Rise of the Market Overlord, Supermarket Guy 2" is world wide. I seen it in Japan, UK, Sweden, Germany, and even in my native home of Canada.

The publisher sent me my 5 free books today! To my surprise, the error still existed on the front cover page. Rise of the Market Overload. Overload?  I somehow missed out, on that title. It would have also been a trooper of a title. Oh well.

But, the fine people at my publishing house, told me it was corrected. It was just that I ordered my books before the correction took place. I made double sure, to ask again, as when I received my first 30 books the error was there. Just a few days later, and the errors still exist on my 5 freebies.

A guy at work wanted one already. He thinks it could go antiquarian, with that mistake in there. I said, the chance is there.

On the handy dandy side of things, I repaired a squeaky floor here the other day. I went down in the basement, and looked and searched for a deformed beam. They all looked straight, and even butted up against the plywood tight. I had to glance real close, to see a mm or a half of a mm space in between my floor joist and the plywood.

I asked the other half, to walk on the floor. I could hear the sound, close to where the small distance was. I did not hammer wedges in the space. It was a very, very small space. They say to use hardwood wedges, and use nail glue to make the floor squeak go away.  All I did, was get some small laminate thin wood strips, and pressed them in place with nail glue corking spread over it. I then went upstairs, and stood in the place for 5 minutes. The squeak was gone, even before I stepped on the area of squeak.

I was worried of banging in hardwood wedges, as to spread the distance further apart between the joist and plywood. For larger problems, I would use that method. But, for a small spread of a mm or a half of one, I would just use a thin wood material, and push them in with nail hold corking coated on top and bottom. They say it holds like nails, and it seems to do the job.

Have a good afternoon, 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…

Supermarket Guy 5 doing very well.

Have approximately 15 % written on Part 5 so far. It is going really well, but the first few chapters maybe more drama and less action. Relationships come into play as the main characters father and mother first meet. A meeting of the eccentrics, one extreme male dominate character with a woman who takes liberty to the maximum extreme, looking back to the 70's, where we remember the 8 track tape and black and white tv. When smoking was cool. A decade where the men held the dominance in affairs and in the household, and the women usually held the fort at the home. Things have changed for the better through the late 80s and 90s, as a womans place in the world has become much more equal these days, becoming bread winners and with the men sharing allot of the household chores these days in many families. Perhaps Margaret Thatcher paved the way for many women all over the world. Now even governments make sure there is a good number of women in their cabinet in order to govern, and man…
