Canada Day today!

Happy Canada Day to everyone today! A country that is bilingual, but that is also multicultural, has come a long way since its humble beginnings as a French then English colony.

As compared to American history, we did not have the huge revolutionary war, or the civil war as our cousins to the south of us can compare. We evolved probably from them, but within a British style government framework.

I would like to see Canada have an elected senate. We have an appointed one. Our Prime Minister and his government works with a majority in the House of Commons. They form policy and vote on bills versus the opposition which most of the time tears them down, but can never truly defeat a bill unless a minority government stands.

I always found our country was always a little more leaning to the left. We seem to leave people do their own thing, and not let the majority view or minority view force others into going a certain way. I think that is the way it should be, also. Leave people live the way they want to live, and keep the government in only providing services to its people- equally in part- health care, police forces, ect.

This is todays view of Canada. Or at least my view. You be who you want to be, in this land of ours. Just do not force your opinions on anyone else...  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"
