A two-for-one deal

My husband says I got one of the two-for-one deals I like. He is making light of the outcome of my emergency room visit last Tuesday. He brought me in, at about two a.m. to emergency, today is Friday, and I am still here.

What led to this scenario can be said to be fortunate and unfortunate. Fortunate because I am in a hospital that is clean, pleasant, and the staff is very skilled, professional, efficient and friendly, not an exaggeration. Unfortunate because I have two things going on: First is a gallbladder that was supposed to have been removed back in 1999; did my body re-grow it? Second, and maybe most urgent is that I am scheduled for angiogram with a fix if needed.

So, patiently we wait, John does go home to do this and that, and me getting needle after needle, test after test, while at home our partially made up bed, and our pets (toy pets), wait. But, I did edit 30 poems and submitted them for publications. I have to do, to keep sane.Tata for now will stay posted.

This book is good.

Epic Celtic saga about truth, honor and duty
For ancient Celts, the cauldron of society was supported by the three legs of truth, honor and duty. If any of them collapsed, the cauldron would lose all that it held. This epic tale of the 6th century spans the Irish Sea during the turbulent times in ancient Dal Riata, a kingdom in the north of Ireland and on the rugged western coast of Scotland. Travel back in time to an era when truth was more important than fame, when honor outranked money and when duty mattered more than life itself.

Ron Cherry's latest book is a Celtic saga of the late 6th century.  It is on Kindle Scout and he could use your nomination.  If it is selected, everyone who nominated it will receive a free Kindle copy.  Click on the following website for more information and a free sample.

Want your musings published?

Was there a time when writers wrote, and voila were published? I don't think so. 
The struggle of writing is just as intense as the tangle to publish. Publishing one's work is a business that can take up all of a writer's time but oh hell; it is the difference between writing for oneself, family and friends or feeling that one has something to say about issues and life, and the pursuit to be read. 
So if you want to delve on costs and venues for publishing your poetry or other writing here is a good site to get you started. 
Don't get frustrated as I already am. Amen.

Sex and expectations.

Finally a realistic article about what makes a good marriage. A spouse is not a source, a spouse is a partner, companion, lover and if one is lucky, a friend. To negate the humanity in marriage and make it an idealistic fanfare destroys marriages. Women expect men to divine their moods and needs. I think that man likes a wife that tells him how she truly feels and wants, and is genuinely passionate because she is honest, in and out of the bedroom.

8 Relationship Myths That Can Seriously Damage Your Marriage

Don't fool your-self.

Some may think that if they really want to, without any training, they can write a novel.

I just read a great article on AHA's You're The Cure website: Save Physical Education Now

The obesity children are suffering now is because there is to much sitting and not enough exercise in schools. Good PE will help end obesity and diabetes. Not just running or sports but also dance and gymnastics.
