I haven’t read this book but I may try it out before watching the TV series. Yes, I am one of those people who boasts that the book was better than the series/movie/play/etc.. At any rate, for those who are interested, here is a trailer for “The Handmaid’s Tale.”

That Moment is a must read! Already read worldwide as an Ebook at smashwords by over 35,000 readers with 87 (5star) reviews. Is it just luck we are in the right place at the right time? Do you believe there is a reason for most things that happen? Being in an unexpected situation, are you unaffected, or have you stood in awe wondering? Is there a moment when you realize that between the beauty or sometimes mayhem of life’s unusual occurrences, we are guided by a higher power for a reason unknown to us until THAT MOMENT!
“That Moment” is a collection of 13 short stories that are real stories from the Author’s friends or family. You’ll find these stories to be inspirational and fuel for your spirit. I was moved by several of them.
While I read through this book pretty quickly, I am certain that I will return to it over and over again. “That Moment” is the sort of book that you will buy multiple copies of — one to keep and one to share. It’s a must-have for your home library. As you may have seen on Amazon, I scored this one 5 stars out of 5.
Life is a blessing, and each one of us is a unique individual whose path through life is guided. It is our decision as to what we do in that moment, which then determines how the events play out.
Which one do you think I should read first? I want to thank Hampton Roads Publishing for the free advanced reading copies. By the way, both books will be available for purchase May 1st.
I Ching, Plain & Simple: The Only Book You’ll Ever Need
The I Ching, or Book of Changes, is a mix of Taoist and Confucianist philosophies that has evolved over many centuries and may be the oldest book in existence. Its main philosophy is that nothing is static and everything changes over time, so our task is to adjust to the ebb and flow of changing circumstances. The I Ching can help us:
The I Ching can be extremely complex, filled with poetry and philosophy. In I Ching, Plain & Simple, Kim Farnell has made the divination system as modern, straightforward, and user-friendly as possible—pick it up and put it to use quickly and easily, without any fuss or confusion. It is the ultimate guide to the I Ching.

It’s Spring so I have to move things around on the blog. Some links may be broken and/or missing for a few days so please hang on…
I have just switched to the default 2017 wordpress theme titled, oddly enough, “twenty seventeen”. There’s a well-thought-out-name for you. I wonder what the meeting must have been like when the execs gathered for that meeting? Don’t get mad wordpress I’m just having a little fun with you.
At any rate, I have a static page which will give you a sample of my latest posts and make announcements. You can navigate to the main blog by using the “blog” button on the menu bar. I’ve also added a new header. In the future I think that I will have headers for holidays and seasons. I’d also like to create my own logo … Like I say — hang on!
If there is no struggle, there is no progress.
I have updated my page of books that I’ve reviewed for 2017. I let 2016 get away from me so much that I didn’t post a 2016 page. Maybe I’ll go back and fix that some day. If I stay on top of the 2017 page, it shouldn’t be much of an effort. Sometimes I am so disorganised and I have learned that reading about organization is not the same thing as “getting” organized.

Each non fiction story is totally different from the next, and yet they all have a common thread.
Whether you believe it or not, there’s a reason for everything.
We sometimes cannot understand why, but in most situations when you look at the path taken, you may understand why things happen the way they do.
Have you ever found yourself in the right place at the right time, then thought it was just luck…Think again!. You are guided into situations for a reason, and in that moment, You made a decision or a choice which in some way changed the path you were on and possibly that of others.
I called the help-desk, while they were very nice, they didn’t help. They confirmed that it was a hardware failure but my Kindle was about 3 months beyond warranty. They offered 15 bucks toward a new one and later upped the number to 20 bucks. In all honesty, I don’t think I want another Amazon product.
I think Amazon could have done a lot better if they wanted too.

It was that time again when we gather around the table for Sunday breakfast. Willy brought up the topic of the Confessional. I wonder if it was purely academic or if he wanted to get something off his chest? Later we talked about Sharon and I told them, that I replied to one of her emails, asking if she would like to hear the story of “The Little Engine That Could”. I think that the general consensus of the family is that she will never speak to me again. What can I say, I thought it was funny and I love Major Payne’s version of the story.
The breakfast was enjoyed by all but I believe no one enjoyed it as much as Peppy. Everyone gave the little dog a portion of their breakfast and he , of course, got his own bowl. He is currently sleeping off the breakfast binge a couple of feet away from me.
My Kindle has been goofing up. It doesn’t recharge very quickly and it’s unusually hot. It doesn’t show up when I plug it into my computer and I’m afraid that it may be dying. Oh well, there is always paper books.
Another Sunday… have a great day everyone.
