Tribute to a Small Furry Friend

In the beginning...

A small furry mammal came to live with us on March 31, 2014.  He was a 6-month-old Chinese dwarf hamster.  My daughter named him Chocolate Chip. He was black with white paws and chest.  The dark…

Snow Day

Miracle. My office is closed due to inclement weather. Yesterday 5 p.m. arrived and I realized

a. All I'd had to eat all day was a tangerine.

b. It was time to throw myself into a vat of fattening goodies.

c. It was time to have a Red # 5 seizure followed by medicinal wheeze bag tea.


a. Rid the house of stink bugs and paint the hall an appropriate neutral?

b. Waffles and Black Sabbath "Crazy Train" to kick things off.

c. Rest.

d.… Continue

All About Payroll Service Providers

Keeping track of payrolls — the sum of the salaries and deductions for all of a company’s employees — is one of the biggest elements of accounting. The net income of any company can be affected by payroll taxes, whether of the pay as you earn (PAYE) or the Employees’ National Insurance type (the two categories of payroll tax in Great Britain). In addition, employees can become quite disgruntled if an error is made on their account, causing them to be paid less than they have actually earned…

Rubber Band It!

Many years ago, I read about a technique that helps you keep your thoughts on a more positive track. And it was so simple I thought I’d give it a try.

It seems you just slip a rubber band around your wrist (a fairly thick one, not one of those really flimsy thinner ones) and anytime you have a “negative”…

Know Your Value as a Writer

You know that job? The one that’s offering $100 – $200 for one blog post? The one you stare at with envy, then mock your own ego for even reading the posting before proceeding to the freelance writer clearance aisle?

Stop it. No seriously, stop it. Apply for that job.

What’s there to lose? What are you afraid of?…

How to Create an Author Newsletter

It probably seems like all anyone tells you is what you need to do more of: Facebook, tweet, link people in, create a website, don't neglect that Facebook page! At the risk of adding one more thing to your never-ending list, however . . . it's a really good idea to create an author newsletter.

An author newsletter isn't just one more thing on your list of daily networking to-dos. It's an invaluable tool that lets you selectively market to your audience and provide them with…

Practical Tips on Change Orders and Back Charges

General contractors are always reluctant to withhold payments that are owed under subcontracts. This is because the obligations for every party in the project are clearly spelled out. However, this clarity tends to be lacking whenever additional work is done. This occurs when the additional work had not been requested before in writing or the appropriate signatures were not obtained. These are the problems that are associated with change orders.…

Speak Up!

Speak up! Speak up if you need something or want something. Ask for it. Don’t sit in a corner expecting people to read your mind and to automatically know what you want and how you’re feeling because, many times, they don’t. If you don’t say something then chances are they’ll never know.

Okay, now, I’m…

On Being a Published Author (of a book named Best Book of 2014)

The birthing process for my 1st book took 3 1/2 years. My book, The Female Assumption: A Mother's Story, Freeing Women from the View that Motherhood is a Mandate pubbed on Oct 1, 2014. I used Amazon's Createspace. I'm great with formatting plus I employed my own professional editor, so Createspace didn't make any money off of me in the pubbing process. 

I've had friends say to me, How great! You achieved your dream!  But as we all know (or suspect if you haven't pubbed…

My Adventures in Outlander World

I resisted. I did! I told myself I’m not a fan of that genre – historical fiction/science fiction/adventure/romance – at least not all in the same story. Plus, my high school students were the ones who told me about Outlander, and they carried one of the series around with them like it was a membership in an exclusive club. Then the TV series was advertised and I realized it was based on the books I had heard so much about, so I watched the first episode. Instantly,…
