Went to Miscou Island today.

Went on a trip to Miscou Island today. There we went to a government beach, that had change rooms and outside showers.  The water was warm, and the beach is sandy. It could be, one of the nicest beaches in New Brunswick. Kouchibougac Parc in New Brunswick has nice beaches, as well as the Bouctouche area, and of course Shediac, "The Lobster Capital of the World".

On the trip to Miscou, you travel through nice towns like Shippagan, where you drive past rows upon rows of crab fishing boats. From there, you pass over a small bridge that opens up for the boats during fishing season at times. They head out to the Gulf of St Lawrence in hunt for deep sea crab. After passing by the fishing boats, you head towards the little island of Lameque. On the island, there are many beaches as well on both sides.  Once again, fish plants dot the area, with many small area fishing wharves here and there.  Also, the wind turbines are seen from the main road going through Lameque to Miscou island.  There are quite a few peat moss operations in place, as the area is rich and abundant in peat.

You can eat seafood pizza at the Petit Mousse as you just head into the island, or head towards Miscou and try out a lobster roll or muscles. Very good food, and a spectacular view of the Baie of Chaleur and the Gulf of St Lawrence.  Not to forget the famous light house at the tip of Miscou Island. Climb to the top, and check out the surrounding area.

Not much news to report on the book front. 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"
