Hockey strike in the NHL

The Hockey strike is taking its toll worse on the fans, than anyone else. We keep hearing on how the fans, are always on the worse end of the hockey stick. With the owners wanting a 50- 50 split from the 57 - 43 arrangement ( correct me if I am wrong), they have a long way to go in reaching a concession. The owners do want to cut them down quite a bit, in my view. My advice to the NHLPA, is to get better pension revenue for the players that are retired today.

I think the players should get together, and start playing in other rinks across the USA and Canada. Give the fans a good show, at a reduced ticket price. Go to the towns, divide up the teams accordingly, or even play against the locals just for fun in some sort of game arrangement. It would boost the players popularity and give the fans a cooling off period.

We see the old timers do this all the time. Come to our local towns, and play for fun, usually against local talent or mix up the talent with the local talent.

Hoping for a resolution soon, although it does not seem like it is going to happen. They say the average career of an NHL player is not as long as what it used to be. An average of 3 years? That is a little hard to believe, when watching the Brodeurs and Chelioses, Messiers of the days gone bye. Is it because the game has gotten too rough. That is another topic, for another day.

Till next time.. No news on the book front...

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"
