Thanks for the Option VISA!!

I would like to personally thank Visa, for the option of not having a Pay Pass or Pay Wave card. A few days ago, I called various banks to apply for a credit card. My new Mastercard had a Pay Pass function on it. I thought it was good, at first. Until I seen on U Tube how hi tech individuals can steal the radio wave frequency, and take all of the information on your card. Sell them to organized crime, so they can upload it to their cards.

I destroyed my Mastercard Pay Pass. I called them again (Mastercard) to apply for a card without that feature.

I thought, choice, is nice. No choice with Mastercard, at least on that phone call to the bank. All their cards, the bank woman explained, had Pay Pass.

I called another bank. All their cards had pay wave and pay pass. So I called Another bank. This bank had, A visa card with no pay wave!

Finally a company that gives us Options, gives us Freedom. Give people the option, of what they want to do with their money.

I know we hear it now and then on TV. Cashless society coming. This is perhaps true, but a person, an individual, you Deserve the right to put your money in some form where you want it. Even at your house, if you like, when you get disenfranchised at a bank or credit union. You, deserve to take out your few hundred dollars out of your account and put it under your mattress if you so likely want to do it. Freedom, liberty, is something we should not take for granted.

Remember electronic transactions can be traced, anywhere. Governments would just love to tax you on the simplest transactions, even between people. But why? There is no reason to, the government makes enough tax money off of our income taxes and sales taxes, ect. There are incredible privacy issues to the future of money, as well.

But, for now, Thank you Visa for the Option. Thank you for the Selection.

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"
