Breakfast was 15 minute drive.

There used to be a place where you could get breakfast around here at 6 am in the morning. All except the popular Tim Hortons chain is open, and you do get tired of that ever so often. Breakfast sandwiches can only go so far, you know.

With the loss of jobs in this area, so have we seen the closure of allot of restaurants, gas stations, specialty shops and what not. We just had the mines close here a little while ago, gone with it are 900 jobs.

Not that I eat out at restaurants all the time. I just wanted a break, and something different from what I do too. The breakfast was good, and went as far as the next town to get something in my stomach. Eggs benedict with pan fries, with the pan fries actually crispy. Not soggy. I nearly went to Tim Hortons, as they have expanded their menu a bit. I go there quite often for a cafe latte.

Here is a tip for those in Russia, Europe, UK, who live in the big villages. Of course, nothing is guaranteed in life, but it seems the price of coffee does very well. Tim Hortons franchises in Russia in fairly large populations of 20 thousand would do very well. I could see it do well in Europe as well, or even in Asia. Seek expert advice before advancing in such an endeavor, though. You can never trust advice on the internet, usually...

Around here, it is always packed in the morning. At this time, people are going to work, and are looking for something to pick them up. I see my co workers arriving often with, a Tim Hortons coffee in hand.  But, maybe it is just a Canadian fad, as in the USA perhaps it is not as popular but I think they are doing alright.

Open a Tim Hortons. Or sell a product everyone can afford. You will do well.  I could not do it around here, as someone else has the territory...

Till next time, still writing books....

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"
