I’m on tenterhooks here. My Broncos are playing the Seahawks this afternoon. I have so many people who are near and dear to me who live in Seattle these days, I’ll probably have to absent myself from social media for the duration of the game. :)

It may be Superbowl Sunday, but I am jumping around and completely excited because my ebook listed on Kindle TODAY!!!!

I know I’m not on any bestseller lists, and I know I am just starting this journey, but I feel so thrilled, every moment. This has always been my dream. Now I am living it.

I hope this Sunday brings victory to the Broncos, and rest and peace to all of you!

Happy Sunday Funday, and thank you for reading. Blessings to you all…

For those of you who do not know this, my partner, “Lara Croft the Tumour Raider” (haha) is Greek. Every month, on the very first day of the month, she and her entire family wish everyone “Kalo Mina.” Translated into English, this means “good month.” Or, maybe I’m mistranslating, and it should be the entire phrase “have a good month.” I don’t know, I speak French, not Greek.

Last month, on the 1st, I published my poetry collection. To all of you who have read it, I thank you! Today, I published my novel, “Blessings.” It’s scary. For those of you who follow me on Twitter (@bellesmots), I write a small poem – called #micropoetry – daily. There were several days where I wrote about nightmares and creepy, spooky stuff. That was all because I was writing my own supernatural mystery novel, and I was scaring myself.

Lara found it…

A Shout Out to Angelina Jolie


This woman has made a statement for all human kind.

 

My wife and daughter have both been stricken and overcome this dreadful disease. My daughter asked her medical doctor to perform preventative surgery twice. On the cancer threat and the BRCA1 gene she inherited from my wife and her family the doctor played GOD and denied her. It was less than four years later that she found her cancer and had the surgeries and the chemotherapy. The chemotherapy at the least could have been avoided and the trauma and fear inflicted on her young children could have been avoided.

The medical and insurance communities need to grow up and not be smug about their role in the lives of their patients

Thank you Angelina.

The time is now.

Parts Pondering v2.4


The more things change the more they stay the same. A common expression isn’t it? Well I also want to repeat that “continuing to do what you have always done while expecting different results is insanity.” We seem to have reached a level of social equilibrium in our parts businesses. We are continuing to do the same things and the results continue to be the same.

Isn’t it time we break out into new things?

We need talented people – so provide them training. Classroom training, webinars, self-study programs – either on the internet or from books are available at your suppliers, your business associations and other professional sources. Are you taking advantage of them?

The time is now.
