Meteorological Spring. Say that five times fast. Go ahead. I'll wait. Now, name the four seasons. (not the Vivaldi classic) No. It's not a trick. Some people start at the season we are currently in. What season did you start with? If we divide the year into the four seasons we get the Meteorological seasons, … Continue reading Weird Wednesday: Seasons
I took advantage of a few promotional deals on a couple of websites, and put my book on sale. So, after a few days, the book has cracked to overall top 50 000, and the top 500 in some other categories. I've very happy with the rating as well. It was supposed to be on … Continue reading Wonderful Wednesday: Book Rankings

To quote Monty Python, “I’ll have your Spam, Dear. I love Spam.” Well, I don’t love it, there’s just an odd ‘like‘ there. I haven’t had it in quite some time though. As a child, there was often the knock-off, Klik in the cupboard, usually after dad’s hunting trip. Beans and Klik. There’s a tent … Continue reading Weird Wednesday: Spam, Spam, Spam, Wonderful Spam.
