What do you get when there is a Blood Moon during a Lunar Eclipse? I’ve seen something about the end is drawing near, for some Mormon. It seems that they are getting a bit frantic with their sermons thinking that the apocalypse is upon us. I think they have gotten the end mixed up with a Walking Dead episode.

I don’t foresee an ending coming any time soon to our world. In fact, I think things are just getting started. What more can you ask for than Pope Francis speaking to Congress about his world views. Will they really listen? Boehner must have heard something in the Pope’s speech to make him step down earlier than he had planned. So who is really running the world or the country? Is it Congress or Pope Francis?

I would love to see the people take back their country for once. Other than that, we may see a zombie apocalypse coming soon. That’s when everyone has to work two jobs just to make ends meet. Then everyone is running around looking like they just walked off the Walking Dead set.

The floods in Utah probably didn’t help. It probably set the stage for their thinking the end was drawing near. Especially when so many people lost their lives in that flood.

Pope Francis will be ending his papal visit on that day too. Oh no! He’ll leave and our DNA will change during the eclipse and we’ll all turn, one right after the other.

So if this is the end? When the next Blood Moon Lunar Eclipse comes around, will that be the ending of the end?


Robot Hotel in Japan


via Japan’s robot hotel opens its (automatic) doors – CNN.com.

What a trip it would be to go to a hotel run by robots. It’d be like visiting a different time period or an alternate universe. How many times have you watched a sci-fi movie and wondered what it would be like to live in that world.
I wonder what the error rate would be? Would there be humans behind the scenes making sure your vacation went smoothly?
Do you have to tip a robot? How much would you tip them?

ROW80 Check-in:

I did a bit of writing today, early this morning. About 1k worth. Not too shabby for someone who hasn’t been doing that much work on their work in progress. The rest of the time was spent doing research and gathering ideas.
My goal for tomorrow will be to write a minimum of 300 words. A paragraph or a few sentences, which ever happens, happens.
I also got a bit more done on that quilt I’m working on. I would have gotten more done had my bobbin not shelled off in the middle of the row I was working on. I’m doing one inch diagonal lines in both directions to make a diamond pattern. I do plan to post photos when its done.


If I Could Dedicate a Moment in Time?

If I could dedicate a holiday to a family member, I would dedicate the Fourth of July to both my Dad and my Brother. My Dad passed away sixteen years ago in January. He had been a veteran of the Korean War even though he had never been deployed. Dad loved Fourth of July. Almost every year we went to the local parade in Pepperell.
My Brother, who I have not seen in a while, is a Navy Veteran. He too was patriotic.
Cookouts and Fireworks are this weekend’s themes. My children are grown, and the puppies don’t quite enjoy the Fireworks. Seems the sound hurts their ears. I’ve yet to find hearing protection for dogs.
An area town set off their fireworks last night. Both dogs were set to barking up a storm in response. It wasn’t until we took them outdoors to show them that they couldn’t see the show from the house, before they calmed down. When I lit a sparkler, Keelaa looked on only to become bored by the thing within a few minutes.
They are looking forward to the food, like most dogs. Hot dogs, hamburgers, and potato salad.

Happy Fourth of July – Stay Safe!

Keep those Fingers on the Keyboard #ROW80

How do you do that?

How do you go about staying motivated to keep on writing every day?

It’s hard, especially when you get stuck on a scene.

I had trouble with keeping my fingers on the keyboard but I still did work on the manuscript. I made the book cover and it came out awesome. All I have left to do on the cover design is the back cover and the blurb. So technically I did work on the work in progress, I just didn’t add any word count on Monday or Tuesday.

Tonight I added about 200 words. I will try to work on it some more after writing this post.

Wanna see my cover?

Here it is… I may tweak the font size a little after I see how it looks on CreateSpace…

 I did have to do a little bit more research on bath salts to get an idea as to how I am going to end the story for this one character. He is the one who has the violent episode while on bath salts and it does not look good for him at this time.

I have never killed off a character before. I will only do this if I find out that there is no hope for recovery for him. I am waiting for the verdict to come in. I stand a 50/50 chance of the counselor replying to my request for knowing what kind of fate my character should face. I already talked to an EMT and he said it will not look too good for the character. From what he said, most individuals end up dying from either the substance or from being restrained or such. What a sad thing to say about the fools who chose to use this particular substance. No wonder it is now being banned in most states here in the US.

I’m going to join RWA!

That’s right folks. I hope to make it official next week when I mail in my membership form. I can’t wait either. The NH chapter has a great bunch of fun gals in it.
