The Supermarket Guy 2 was a book ahead of its time.

All in the news, the XL food scare in Alberta, Canada, is just the start of people questioning where their food is coming from. The E coli scare, that caused the shutdown of the huge plant that supplied 1/3 rd of the Canadian meat supply. We seen the horrible pictures of the thousands of tons of meat being dumped to land sites in the local area.

"The Supermarket Guy 2" does have a part about receiving poor quality goods from certain areas of the world. Also, it has a part where the main character nearly, just nearly, buys meat with antiboitics and growth hormones induced. Luckily enough, something just happened that stopped him from putting his signature down on what could have been a terrible deal.

I think the future of food supply is in medium sized, and small size farms again. Huge supply chains, like the one at the XL plant in Alberta, is too huge of a risk should something go wrong with it. In this case, it was linked to poor quality control at its operations. An investigation will go further into the details, on where the real blame lies.

I think people will think more about organics. It does have a strong future. No pesticides. Natural, as the main character realized in added such a section into his main stores. We see this already happening in the major chains, especially in Europe.  We are always slower to follow, here in North America..

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"
