Kings Landing

Kings Landing Historical Settlement in New Brunswick is a great place to go back in time. We visited the site yesterday, and had a wonderful time. There was an old Print Shop in the late 1800s, that brought us back into a period where everything was done by manual hands. The sash mill was shown to us in great detail, you could see the old belts and pulleys several feet long, directing power to carve out the wood by the force of plainers and jointers.

Kings Landing is located in Prince William N.B., just 20 minutes north of the capital city Fredericton. We ate dinner at the Kings Head Inn, when I had finished I just realized I went to heaven and back. Delicious chicken pot pie with gravy, roasted potatoes, bean pods, amber ale beer, and a squash nutmeg pie with whipped cream on top. Brown bread... Goes along with the meal, thick, fresh, delicious. Enough said!

There were a great crew from England, Japan, and USA there walking through the magical site. There was something unique, or heartwarming about this site, that definitely will make me go back next summer. You just turn around a corner through the fall colors, or down a hill near the older trees, truly a place for photographic artists. Many pictures throughout the site, can be placed on the front cover of any top magazine in the world. And win awards!

The site will be closing in a few days, sadly enough. But, they currently have fall suppers, and will have Christmas suppers as well, at the Kings Head Inn. Check the times for availability. If I lived close, I would reserve a seat now, for that wonderful Christmas supper! What a spectacular time that would be! The link to the site is as below:

No news on the book front. It surely is not moving fast for my productions :(  Life goes on,  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"
