Oh Boy 2

Wow, lots to read. Thank everyone for commenting. Interesting topic. I thought I’d just comment in another post because you all got me thinking.

I do tend to have feminist thoughts and definitely see how modern thought has molded me. Yet, I grew up generations out of traditional roots where men “worked” and women “tended house” – they subsisted off the land with little store-bought products to make life easier. From my place in history I can’t help but think women are just as capable. Yet, I came to the conclusion awhile back that my ancestors must have been doing something right because the people lived for thousands of years in a harsh environment. Their strict rules kept people alive.

They used to have taboos against women hunting. I try to analyze why because I think women have the same skills needed to hunt, or would have had they been taught. I’m not sure that my ancestors would have agreed because they didn’t live in the comfort I do. I’d have to say the reason that rule ever sta…

Oh, boy...

I got this one in an e-mail that claimed it was a real article from 1955. If you click on the image a larger one will open.



So does this mean people who say they're got old-fashioned would advice these to be the rules still? Which one made you laugh the most? Most angry?

Starlit Destiny News

I was working on this and that and decided to take a moment to surf a few blogs. I stopped by Laine Morgan's and found out that Starlit Destiny is now available at Fictionwise. That means it is available for a discount this week.

Thanks for the heads up Laine! I might not have checked right away. I have an appointment I should be getting ready for now. And congrats on Thieves Bounty being a new release at Fictionwise this week as well.

Here is my own web page for a little more information about Starlit Destiny -- reviews, a glossary, things like that.

Or here is a wallpaper created with a larger version of the cover.

Well, I better get ready for that appointment sooner than later.

Fun With Dachshunds and Hasselhoff

Found another cutie pic that I got in an e-mail once, but lost. Later the same day I found this video with two happy dachshunds!

Before you download that video, be warned that 1) it's goofy and 2) it took a long time and I have DSL. David Hasselhoff had a bit of fun in front of a green screen running images of Alaska (and Africa too).

Random Kind Thoughts

The other day Karen tagged with an act of random kindness. I do little things that are kind a lot. But what this tag really got me thinking was on a larger scale than that, and not just about myself.

Anyway, I’m going to start at the beginning for me, which is a few years ago…

I was in Metlakatla, Alaska for a day of presentations in the school. When I got to the float plane dock I called back to Ketchikan for a ride to my car and my mother was crying. There had been a news break on the national news about an ironworker that died on a project my brother was working on. The whole flight back was nerve-wracking for me. Once home I called the police in that city and they said “can’t release the name until we talk with family”. At that point I was half-relieved, but not really because I caught on that it had to be my brother’s friend they were talking about. The man who’d been killed and I graduated from high school together, and he’d just hit that point in his life where things started to…

Updates at NCP Author Blog

Holly Bush, the author of Cross the Ocean joined our blog this weekend. As well as Kelly Renea.

Actually one other author is trying to join NCP Authors as well, but something isn't working right. Computer gremlins at work. We've tried twice. I have a few ideas but wish there was a users-support group for Blogger group moderators. I'm learning a lot as I go, but still learning.
