Seize the day and expand your horizons.

The presidential debate is on again tonight. This race could be pretty much locked up. But, it is very close. The key is winning the swing states, with the most amount of electoral votes. A major gaff, a slip up, could spell a much different outcome down the stretch. I do not expect any gaffs, but only a fine tuning on the talk of foreign policy. Everyone thinks much differently, about foreign policy.

You should have your own foreign policy. Just on the local scene. Nothing destructive, of course. Just the idea of becoming foreign to your mold in life. Or your routine. Break your routine. You must be tired, as I am, of it by now.

Get out of your routine. Join a class. Any class. A music class, an art class, or get into volunteering. An exercise class. It may open your doors to new ideas and friendships that can last forever. Get a second job. That is harder than what it used to be, as the jobs are scarce all over most areas of the world.  Try getting an internet job, and work from home.

Better yet, get that idea for a business. Start up a food, a small entertainment, or service business. In this area a local entrepreneur has started a food business which probably employs around 50 people. He just expanded his operation lately. If you have something special to offer that the other cannot, then I suggest you go right in it and create your niche in the market. Make sure you have the knowledge, speak to others who have gone into this business of sorts and evaluate how you will do. Is their room enough for expansion? Are you offering a different, or similar product. A similar product maybe more difficult to sell, if you live in an area of economic slowdown. Think things over before jumping in, ask for advice of relatives and friends. A wealth of input is a great starting tool.

How about going into the stock market? Care has to be exercised there also, as not to put all your eggs in one basket. Maybe taking a trade, or a course, that can enable you in time to get certified and start up that business you always dreamed of.

Lately I have been thinking of all these things. The book business has not been that kind to me. I need to get more foreign, sometime soon.. New thinking, that is... Have a great day, till next time. Remember, you are the economy. All you have to do is keep moving!!

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"
