Remembrance day tomorrow.

Tomorrow is Remembrance day, and around this area their has been a great "poppy" movement to get the poppies out to people everywhere. In many different convenience stores, around the area, the poppy tray stood at the exits of many of the local stores. Old men, but some younger cadets, did a great service in trying to raise money for the veterans of many wars. The poppy fund, in all intents and purposes, is exposed to go to help veterans in need.

I made a donation and bought a poppy several weeks ago. Sometimes I would forget to put it on, as it clung on to a certain jacket in the house, and would feel somewhat guilty for not putting it on. These days we are so busy with affairs, that I forgot to switch the poppy over to my other jacket. I would pass by the stations, still donating money, and just acknowledging that I had one home, without taking a poppy from the tray.

Some members of my family who were WW 2 veterans, were asked if they needed money from the poppy fund many years ago. They refused it, as they were lucky enough to have their health at the time. Now, this money can go for power chairs, electric scooters, food and shelter, and many comforts for hospitalized veterans...

So please donate, to this worthy cause... 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"
