Earwigs are pesky.

Earwigs, once again this year we got allot of them. And, they multiply like crazy. When the rainy season is off and on, we usually get them pretty strong. We see their black little eggs near the edges of the Garages, where they just propagate like crazy! If piles of wood are laying around, that is where they head to to lay their eggs.

They are harmless. But, to find the odd one crawling around the house is a surprising thing. Usually they are brought in with our clothes, are if they are hanging on the door they somehow fly in, maybe with the wind. As, the house is sealed very tight here, which is a good thing.

Once inside the house, there is no food for them. They just will eventually, whither away. I doused them a year ago with soap and water, as they say that is enough to kill them. It does work, but it seems to be a temporary matter of remedy.

I seen the neighbor today, hire a pest control professional to clean up around his house. I am unsure of the spray he uses, but he did tell me he had big problems with them. I will evaluate the situation in the near future, as working night shifts, it is hard to check up on where they could be hiding...

Sometimes the bugs wins over the humans.. For a short while, we hope... 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"
