Mother Nature is so confused. She can't make up her mind if the temperature should be 62 with severe storms like today, Sunday the 17th or 35 with snow on the ground like last week and what is predicted for Tuesday of this week.


My hobby of Amateur Radio has been fun lately, because there are a lot of special operations around the world that we call DXpeditions.  I have worked all of them, but the latest one in Myanmar. I have until the 22 or 26th to contact them. Hopefully I will, as this is the last trip anyone will make to the island this year.


Okay, on the writing front, things are slow here as I have been doing too much radio operating.


How about you?  Are you doing the November Writing Exercise?

(See last Blog if you don’t know what I am talking about.)



If you are or not, how about leaving a comment down below on what you are doing?  Even if you are not a writer, you can leave a comment and let us know what favorite thing you are doing this month.


We would love it if you shared your passion with us.


One more week until Thanksgiving is here, then just a few more weeks before Christmas.  Seems the year is flying by, of course if you ask a teacher, they will say not fast enough as it is not June yet. HA! HA!


Do you have any special plans for the holidays?  If so, share with us by leaving a comment.



Until next time,




Here is a listing of my eBooks that are only 99 cents each.

You can find them at Amazon and


Smashwords carries them in all formats and even in pdf files.


You don't need a special reader machine.  You can download the Kindle app or Nook app from their websites to use on your computer, tablet, or laptop.

It finally happened. They say it is coming.  I don't want it!


That nasty word has been spoken too many times today and by too many people.


Yes, you guessed it. It's that nasty four letter word that makes people cringe when they hear it.


Snow!  Suppose to start tomorrow, Monday, Veteran's Day. Yea me! 


I Hate Snow!


Lake effect snow is the worst thing one can hear on the local news. Oh, how Lake Michigan hates us.


3 to 8 inches.  The first snow and it is to be 3 to 8 inches. Come on!


The predictions are more snow this winter, but this is ridiculous.  That's too much for the first snow.


Then next Saturday, back up to 51 degrees.


Why can't it just stay 51 all winter?  Where is that damn global warming when you want it?


Okay, enough said.


This is November. The month of: NaNoWriMo


National Novel Writing Month.


Are you writing one?   If so, how far into are you? Care to share what it is about?


Leave a message down below and tell us all about it. We are anxious to hear your news. It has to be better than the snow news, ha ha!


NaNoWriMo runs from the 1st to the 30th of November every year.  The plan is to get people to write 50,000 words of a new novel.  This is first draft writing, that you can finish after the month is over. But, the first 50,000 words have to be written this month.


Can you do it? 


As Bob the Builder used to say, "Yes, I can!"


Okay it is your time to share. Tell us what you are writing or doing in a comment down below.  We are waiting to hear.


Oh!  In reference to the last blog, yes I was able to make contact with Wake Island twice on different frequencies.


Until next time,

Certainly hope you downloaded a copy of the two books that have been free for the past four weeks.


If you did please go back to and leave a review on the page for whichever book you bought.


My hobby is Amateur Radio. Right now there are several DX-peditions going on. A DX-pedition is where one or several Amateurs go to a country/island to operate.


One of those this week is Wake Island in the Pacific.  This is the one I am trying hard to get, as I have never worked that Island.  The other Dx-peditons going on I have worked on several times on different frequencies.


So, any spare minute will be used to try to contact Wake Island.


Enjoy the week and I will write again when I get time.


Feel free to leave a message and tell us what you are up to, down below.


Until next time,
