Plant a tree and save the planet.

I remember in the 80s back in boy scouts, we planted trees in some fields and even went door to door to give out some saplings. If I remember correctly, we would plant them in peoples yards, a long way back. I thought somewhere it said that the smallest of trees are great CO2 absorbers. One of the gases blamed for global warming.

Global warming has been a neutral issue with me, personally. I do believe that our activity on earth is probably contributing to it, but I also believe that we are only accelerating a process that will eventually happen anyways. I do believe that Canada has done a great job in many areas of combating global warming, with the installation of wind farms across the country and such. Many countries have reduced their CO2 footprint, but where developing countries such as China where coal fired plants are popping up everywhere, it is a hard battle line to take. There must be a way to get developing countries off of CO2 increasing emissions. I know here in New Brunswick, many of its oil fired plants have already been retired. Do I believe we can reduce CO2 completely. Not for many years, no. It is just that it is a most reliable source of energy, and it is needed in a % quantity to stabilize the grid. Too much wind power will lead to lights on lights off as the wind fluctuates. You need stability in the mix. We just need to minimize CO2 emissions at a tolerable level.

But, a great way to deal with it is to plant trees, and protect forests. Reforest where forests have been cut for firewood, paper, or furniture. I would like to see another tree planting program in force by governments throughout the world. Get out the high school kids to plant trees. They cool the planet, and remove CO2!

No news on the book front.. 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"
