Billionaire Harold Wannapus envies the Solar Planes record so he builds a solar submarine!

Harold Wannapus waved to his millions of adoring fans, as half of his body was inside of the submarine he had constructed for his around the oceans and back world event tour.

One scientist held up his pen near the dock to ask a question before he got in "Your submarine has solar panels at the top, to absorb the earths rays! How fast does your submarine go on a full tank of the suns energy?"

Harold smiled back and responded "Oh, it will go at at least 200 knots. We constructed this submarine to be as nimble and agile as a turtle, that actually ploughs the water forward as to create the impression of rising sea levels for all kids to enjoy when sloshing near the shore! Next question that I can obviously answer, please!"

Someone from CNONO news channel quipped "Do you have enough foodstuffs for your voyage? That is always the problem with these voyages, keeping the mass of the vessel down as to conserve energy!"

Harold laughed and hauled out his fishing rod "Ahh, you ask a very simple question. The answer is right here, and I surely will jig a humpback whale and save us much energy in our voyage towards the artic. We can piggy back on many of a tuna, if we truly do not go hungry and lose it and begin eating our crewmates, if you know what I mean!"

Another news reporter from KLOP FLOP asked "So now for your bowl movements. So much restricted space on such a meticulously designed vessel. When you do your number 2, what will you do to save flushing water and the planet!"

Harold clapped his hands together "Great question, probably the only good question I recieved yet this year! Well, we figure on this 10 day voyage, we can just let it run out on the floor, as building a toilet in this high tech machine was not an option due to the weight. Problem being we cannot just open the hatch and do it outside, at a mile below the oceans surface. A butt hole collapses at that ocean pressure, as many of a scientific book may relate too. Ok, enough questions, on with the journey"

Everyone applauded, and yelled "Harold the earths green thumb, Harolds is the earths green thumber!"

It made him so excited he yelled back just before closing the hatch to his solar submarine "My 100 million dollar submarine of the solar nature will make the ocean much cleaner and suitable for penguin farming! Time to start our voyage!"

He locked the two top hatches, and got down in his specially designed cockpit with his co pilot, Pete.

Pete started the engines and started a hard descend down to a depth of 80 feet. Suddenly the motor stopped. The engines would not turn. It said on the mainframe computer, battery power low. Battery power low.

Wannapus slammed his fist on the screen "We only moved ten feet. What is wrong with this blasted sub, Pete!"

Pete whimpered "It appears we cannot get any charge at this depth for our solar panels for our subs! We are stuck here at the bottom of the Ocean, with only 10 days of mush food supply and a vhs tape of the fireplace crackling channel!"

Harold cried "Have you lost your mind, man. The VHS tape takes power from our batteries! No crackling fireplace in here, we are for sure doomed!"

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"


Part 4 is free and available but in limited quantities!

Part 4 is free for now, and available in limited quanties ( 50 downloads per day),  500 per month...

At least I think I set it up that way... Here is the link to Bookfunnel.

I tried Goodreads Giveaway, but you had to be a member of KDP publishing on Amazon. Frustrating, but there is always another way to skin a cat.

I waited a long time for Goodreads to offer ebook giveaways to everybody, but that only included KDP authors from Amazon.

So, I had to take it to this route. And to give my book to many, to get the word out. Something an author has a hard time to do, to sink the flagship battleship!!! 

Oh well, hope there are some positives out of this... I hope... Download it for free, if you can get it in time before the downloads run out!

Have a supermarket kind of day...
