MY KNEAD UNFULFILLED

breadbaker

We inherited a fancy fire engine red KitchenAid mixer last week.  The first thing I did was order a dough hook for it.  Like lots of foods that many of us should go easy on, fresh baked bread is simply something I cannot refuse when the basket is passed around the table.  So, having this new mixer with the dough hook thingie means I can make bread without having to go through the kneading…

BOIL THE WATER…ANOTHER BOOK’S COMING!

BOIL THE WATER…ANOTHER BOOK’S COMING!

CAMCovFace

I am just a few weeks away from launching my fifth book in as many years.  That’s the rough draft of the cover pictured above.  There are also two other completed efforts: one is a teacher’s lesson guidethat supplements one of the children’s book and the other is a short manual to guide newbie self-publishers through the process of preparing a manuscript for publication.  That’s seven items…

WHAT SUCKS TODAY - UNCIVILIZATION

WHAT SUCKS TODAY – UNCIVILIZATION

As imperfect as we Americans can be, I have come to realize that we have probably made more progress at becoming a civilized nation than we get credit for.  True, we still have lots of work to do on prejudices, attitudes and individuals who go wacko, but compared with centuries of unending deep-seated hatred still in so many parts of the world…we ain’t doing so bad.  It’s a shame others can’t…

MOVE OVER SPIELBERG, I MADE A VIDEO!

If you are a fellow self-publisher I do not have to tell you that marketing and production costs can add up pretty quickly if you don’t pay attention.  That’s why I try to do as much as I can by myself.  Fortunately, I spent a lot of time working in marketing throughout my career so knowing how to package up promotional and advertising “stuff” helps offset costs.  I’ve also tried to teach myself…

PREPARE TO BE ALIENATED!    

PREPARE TO BE ALIENATED!    

AlienSign copy

A NASA scientist has announced he expects alien life outside of earth to be discovered within the next 20 years.  Well, even though lately I haven’t been spending much time in my thinking chair on the back patio, this got me to thinking.  I would have to assume that the arrival of aliens would be treated no differently from the way we American treat anything new that plops itself on our…

IT ALL ABOUT TIME

IT ALL ABOUT TIME

timeline

Trust me, I am not complaining…just making an observation.  When you move from the northern regions of the United States to South Florida you lose some sense of timing since there is no real spring or fall here.  A major loss is that there is no noticeable thrill each year when the first few warm days come along after a bitter cold winter.  Of course, what is not a loss is the bitter cold…

WELL, THAT DIDN’T WORK…

WELL, THAT DIDN’T WORK…

thinking

I was going to go into a lengthy dissertation about my regrets having posted a challenge to earn 20 “likes” as described in my posting two days ago.  “Earn” is a key word here and I should not have expected to reach my goal without it.  I do dumb things every now and then…this was now.  I should know better, but it’s not worth going into.  I apologize.  I will never do it again.  If I could…

TIME TO LIKE UP!

TIME TO LIKE UP!

Today’s posting is a self-serving, narcissistic, egotistical attempt at a meaningless endeavor.  BTW, can you spell narcissisticright on the first attempt?  I never can.  Anyway, I digress.  Here’s the deal on today’s posting.  Either you leave a “like” or I will jump into the canal out back of my house and remain on the bottom forever and ever and only come up for air when needed.  I am not…
