That’s About It – Period

Again, I bring the lovely August McLaughlin into you lives.

This time the topic is menstruation.  That’s right.

Here is the link to her website:   August on Menstruation

If you don’t want to listen to the whole thing, here’s a great video

that takes about 10 minutes:  Thinkx on Women and Menstruation



A Story Worth Telling – What Should You Be Afraid of?

Great Story!  Takes about 6-7 minutes to read and I am still packing in the real thoughts in it.

Whether you agree with the storyteller’s stance or not (I certainly do), it’s something you really should take to heart and sincerely think about.

“I Went to a Strip Club”

And, yes, I have.  Doubt I will go again.  However, that’s not what this post is about.

This is about some church folk who go to a strip club and what happens.

Now, most of you know that I am not “religious”.  That I don’t get much into a lot of what the church says you “gotta” or “what happens”  that sort of thing.  But, this is just wonderful to read and see people “stepping outside of their comfort zones”.  That’s the big thing I get from it.  They stepped outside and things began to happen.

Apply this to whatever or wherever in your life you choose.  Just read it and think about it.

“I Went to a Strip Club”



Read a Book! Enlarge Your Mind!

I am certain you have heard this all before.  Read a book – go places in your mind – enlarge your mind-  so forth and so on.

With today’s invention of the E-reader (esp. Kindle), the world of reading has taken on a brand-new twist.  Now, you can do all the above and carry a couple of hundred books right with you to read anywhere and anytime.  Kindle book marks all the books and keeps your places, allows you to highlight and take notes … AND…if you keep it synced you can even go on another device of yours and it will be in the same place!  Just wonderful.

Well, I want you to take a step back from that and remember the feeling of holding an actual book in your hands.  I want you to smell the newness, feel the smooth cover, see the bright picture on the cover.  Now, open it in your mind and feel yourself turn each and every page as your read and visit that particular world.  Remember that feeling!  If you don’t remember the feeling, then you really need to read an actual book.

Don’t get me wrong.  I love love love my kindle(s).  I love that I can go onto any PC, log in and read my kindle books with just the download of a simple program.  Most of all, I love that I am actually published on Kindle! as well as with several other publishers in the RW.

So, today, I want to share another aspect of the world of books.  The Middletown Public Library is the place I go to relax at times.  Just to get out of the house and make myself sit and read.  I know the people who operate it and love them as well.  We chat at times and they always make me feel at home there.  So, it only made sense that I sell their excess books on Amazon.

I have made a deal with them.  I take very little for doing the work.  I call it my labor of love.  I get just a little more than packaging and gas back.  And, many times, if there is a problem, I will forgo most of that to give the customer a discount.  Anyway, we are quite successful there on Amazon.  The library makes money for new books and people read their books that, otherwise, might have just sat on a shelf or (shudder) been sent to the paper mill for recycling.

So, what I am asking is that you do me two small favors:

  1.  Visit the following link:  Middletown Public Library Amazon Storefront  and click on “products”.  Take a look a all they have to offer at very good prices (and, if you buy one and let me know through Amazon, I will give you a discount.
  2. And, please reblog this, email it, pass it on somehow…let’s get the word out so more and more people check out the Middletown Public Library on Amazon!
