Model House and pool

I started out looking at a couple of Tiny Houses, but my attention was hijacked by this…micro house. As in almost microscopic! lol And the pool actually holds water.

Makes me want to dust off my old tools and start making stuff.

Have a great weekend,

Pre-diabetes and healthy eating dos and don’ts

Sally Cronin discusses pre-diabetes, which can be controlled by diet and a bit of healthy exercise. She also gives no nonsense info. on the kinds of foods we need, and the ones we should treat with great caution.

I’ve realised my healthy diet is maybe not as healthy as I thought it was. My addiction to Salada biscuits could have something to do with it… -sigh-

Do you body a favour and read the article. https://smorgasbordinvitation.wordpress.com/2021/08/26/smorgasbord-health-column-family-health-a-z-pre-diabetes-a-billion-at-risk-of-diabetes-worldwide-by-sally-cronin/

6 Ways Writers Protect Their Online Privacy – Virtual Book Blast For Laws of Nature & Guest Post by Jacqui Murray…

Excellent advice about online security from Jacqui Murray. We all use social media, especially during this pandemic, but the big tech giants make their money from selling our info to the ad networks. They’ve turned us into their ‘product’.
Jacqui Murray outlines some simple things you can do to protect your loved ones even if you don’t think you have ‘anything to hide’.

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

If we humans aren’t giving away our personal information (as we do on FB, Tiktok, Instagram, Twitter and every other social media outlet), we’re having it stolen without our permission and sold to those who mean us harm. This is a bigger deal for writers than most because:
1. we have copyrighted files that provide us an income
2. we provide access to our income streams on our digital devices. If we’re hacked, the bad guy can shut us out of those and divert the monies from them to himself.

Most of us have found our books being given away or sold on nefarious platforms that obtained them illegally and are now profiting from our labor. Because of this, I spend more time than most Normal People trying to secure my online environment.

Here are six easy steps everyone should implement. To keep this article as short as…

Happy Mother’s Day!

The Offspring and I went OUT today. Armed with masks and 1/2 a litre of hand sanitiser, we spent four hours visiting two local plant nurseries and indulging our love green stuff.

Now, we’re pooped. lol And my feet hurt! I’d forgotten what it was like to walk around for pleasure. Not complaining though. This has been the best Mother’s Day in a lot of years.

I hope you have a wonderful day as well.

Massive hugs

6 hour blackout

I’m rushing to get this out because our area is losing power from 9am to 3pm.

Voktah, book 1 of The Suns of Vokhtah, will be free as at 0:01 am Amazon time on March the 16th [northern hemisphere].

Sorry my fellow Aussies. Timezone differences mean that it won’t be free until some time in our afternoon today [the 17th]. That’ll teach us to be ahead… mwahahaha!

Ahem. I’ll post some direct links as soon as they become available.

cheers

Flying…

I meant to do a marketing post today, but when I read this post by OBT, I just had to share:
https://myonebeautifulthing.com/2021/01/30/sydney-kennett/

Seriously, who hasn’t had the flying dream? I had them quite a few times as a child, and I remember thinking [in the dream] that it was so easy, I’d have to remember how to do it ‘when I woke up’. The weird thing is, like champion flyer Sydney Kennett, I’m scared of heights too. Sadly, that’s where any comparison ends! lol

I found a how-to video of sorts that’s kind of interesting:

Okay, that’s enough play time for me. I’ll write the last Favourite Bits post for The Godsend…tomorrow. 🙂
