Lice ain' nice!

A friend of mines kid has Lice. A long time ago, lice was considered a thing caused by filth. How little do we know, that it is actually dirty heads that lice try to avoid. If you wash your hair every day, then lice will love you.

It can happen to anyone. If your kid is close to another kid, touch hair, share hats, it can happen as easy as that. Kindergarten, is a great place for it to happen.

You can get special shampoos for to wash it out. There are some areas which claim that super bugs have now been created, or super lice, that are resistant to these special shampoos. Also, if you are pregnant, check to see if you can use them first. The chemicals can be absorbed through the skin, and may have ill effects for the pregnancy.

There are natural products out there to use, that are deemed safe for child bearing moms. Tea tree oil is said to help to get rid of lice. Also, olive oil is said to coat the head, and smother the lice, making it unable for them to get air for to breath. It makes hair slippery so they cannot lay eggs on the hair strands. Mayonnaise over your head, is said to also block oxygen to the lice, smothering them away bit by bit. Leave the mayonnaise on for a good period of time, for it to be effective.  Also, gels maybe used, to get them away from your scalp, doing the same thing.

The bad part about it, is that you may not show the symptoms of lice, for many days later. It takes time for the eggs to hatch, a person may not know it until then.

Well, no news on the book front. Till next time, keep your hair short and do not touch hair with anyone..

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"
