Have to Plan a Vacation.

I have to plan a vacation. It is, actually, sad to leave such a beautiful place in the summer months. The Bay of Chaleur, one of the most beautiful bays in the world...

Well, I will probably head to 1. Maine, Boston  or 2. Quebec, Levi, Jardin de Metis. For approximately a week or so.

Difficult decision to make. The Old Orchard beach, Portland, the outlet stores, and then the lovely panoramic New England seacoast. Or, the belle ambiance of the French Quebec atmosphere. The old city, and all of its cobble streets, its old buildings rich in history and such.

The only thing going for Maine right now, is that I never ventured further than Calais Maine. I went through St Stephen, just to get across the boarder one time. This was, indeed, the time when you just had to say hello to your boarder crossing guard. The good, ole, days.

Sadly enough, I think the episode of the armored car employee who shot his own employees, is a lesson for all of this high tech gadgetry. It was one from the inside, that robbed the armored car and did terrible damage to families who lost their loved ones.

Just think for a minute. This was, one from the inside that did the job. How can, anyone, prevent that. How? It is very hard to do.

Thus, the reason for the passports, scans at the airport, ect, is just a little maybe over done? I do agree with the Passports. They do show you are in a country for such and such a time, and reputable. Sure, I am in favor of x rays of the luggage and such. I am in favor of no fluids over a certain quantity, or none at all, in carry on luggage. But, have we gone overboard, in security checks. Body scans at the airport? I know this stopped me from taking the plane more often that what I could have. We all know it is a hassle.

I remember when I had to take off my shoes at the airport going to the USA. I was actually, not alright with that, but it did create a feeling of discomfort and humility. I lived in Canada all my life. But, I had to get on the plane to get where I was going. Why don't they just issue us shoes at the ticket counter ( like in a bowling alley), and put them on. You put your shoes in your luggage. You then only take off your bowling shoes once you get off the plane at your destination...

You are judged guilty, before even getting to the air planes doors. We all know this is the bare facts.

Is this the world we must live in? There must be better ways around this, as we cannot prevent no matter how hard we try, everything. What are we trying to prevent these days, everything?

I think the above example, goes to show that. They could have had security up the ying yang, but when one of their own jumps off the wagon, what can you do... It has more to do, with society as a whole. Finding out why people do these kind of terrible things. We need to make sure everyone feels, like a part of society.  Inclusion is the key. 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"


Part 4 is free and available but in limited quantities!

Part 4 is free for now, and available in limited quanties ( 50 downloads per day),  500 per month...

At least I think I set it up that way... Here is the link to Bookfunnel.

I tried Goodreads Giveaway, but you had to be a member of KDP publishing on Amazon. Frustrating, but there is always another way to skin a cat.

I waited a long time for Goodreads to offer ebook giveaways to everybody, but that only included KDP authors from Amazon.

So, I had to take it to this route. And to give my book to many, to get the word out. Something an author has a hard time to do, to sink the flagship battleship!!! 

Oh well, hope there are some positives out of this... I hope... Download it for free, if you can get it in time before the downloads run out!

Have a supermarket kind of day...
