Shootings in Connecticut

Just recently I have heard about the shootings in Connecticut. We feel a sense of mourning, enormous loss, for the good people who are in anguish over this tragedy at the school.

Micheal Moore said on the news that there have been 31 shootings since Columbine. What is going on, and why has this statistic increased over time?  I sincerely do not recall this amount of shootings in the 70s, or 80s.

In the United States you have the 2nd Amendment, the right to bear arms. While personally, I was always in favor of this Amendment to bear single shot hunting rifles. I am not in agreement where automatic weapons, handguns, should be protected under this Amendment. But, it is something for the US Congress and its government to decide.

Apart from that, schools need a security system in place. Do they need metal detectors? Do they need an armed, security guard? They need a security plan of action, an alarm system in each room, and practices on how to deal with such an event.

I think it could be also, a change of spirituality over that span of 30 or so years, that has brought more of these tragedies about. We need to focus on helping those people that are alone, be inclusive, so no one will try a crime like this again. We can only minimize these things, as the world is not perfect... We do hope someday it will never happen again!

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"
