For this year my goal is to develop what I have already written and work on a couple stories that have recently been started. I have my homework spelled out for this year as well. This includes working on those dreaded synopsis and building my editing skills.
Changing the subject while I'm thinking about it. They say that there are some words you can use in your blogs that are profitable and will make you money. Some of these words include auto insurance, credit, school and of course electronics like computer's. I wonder how a person is paid by using these words? Seriously, no one I know would even click on the highlighted word simply because they are not visiting the site to buy something. Everyone I know likes to make purchases from Myer and Wallmart. If they are shopping online its Ebay or Amazon.com. This includes me.
So what brought about this burst of useless information? I was checking out Alaskan jobs. I'd really love to live in that sometimes frozen wilderness. Even with arthritis advancing in these joints, I'd love to go Big-footing! There is also Moose hunting and lots of fishing opportunities.
So this is today's dream! Let's all move to Alaska. I need an on staff doctor to assist with the pain and a job that lets me work on the computer. I only want to work a couple days a week and spend the rest of my time fishing and gardening. I need a chicken coop with chickens and some goats. Now, who want's to hook me up? Hahaha, I'll be your best friend for life as long as you don't stalk me. Try to stalk me and I will consume you because I am The Big Fish.
OK, on this episode of Kitchen Nightmares there is rat droppings, cockroaches and rotten produce in the basement. The meat they are serving is green and rotten before cooking. The smell I would imagine is absolutely putrid. The condition of this restaurant is so disgusting that it would require a week or perhaps longer to clean up. Roaches are the biggest obstacle this kitchen faces. It can take up to a month or longer to completely get rid of them. Only constant vigilance, daily scrubbing and pesticides will take care of the problem. Even with bad management, any cook that allows standards to get that bad needs to find another job. If I accepted a job such as that I would personally call the health department on them. The economy may be bad right now but will not endanger my customers.

Since breaking his phone several weeks ago, the only way to get a hold of Shelly would be to use Mom’s phone. That involved sneaking in her room after she fell asleep to keep from getting lectured. The bright side of the situation was, Gabriel usually feel asleep by seven and was out all night unless the dogs started barking.
During the conversation with Shelly, noting could be worked out. Everything that went wrong was all Caleb’s fault. Perhaps it was in some ways. But if he put his foot down to try and put a stop to all the nonsense, it would also involve him landing a fist in someone’s face as well. This could lead to jail time and there had been enough of that in recent years to last the rest of his life.
In the end, it was decided for now that they would spend Christmas apart. No one could afford anything decent this year. Actually it was that way for as long as he could remember. Everyone fought all the time and there never was any decent gift exchange. “Hell, all we ever really seemed to have was mom’s damn ornament collection. I can’t be blaming mom for everything when she tried her best. It’s not her fault that I tore up everything that was ever given to me. Time for bed I guess.”
Christmas morning Gabriel made several attempts at calling Caleb before he actually got up. Lisi was there along with his sister Hanna and her two kids. There were also presents. A wrapped box was shoved on Caleb’s lap as they wished “Merry Christmas.”The Box contained a two liter of cola and all sorts of snacks to pass the time. The gesture was well appreciated, but for some reason it just forced a growing craving to have some Jowl Bacon. “Shelly is the one pregnant and I swear I’m having the cravings for her.” A pair of warm pajamas was given to him and Mom got a PlayStation 2 along with an assortment of games. It was explained that this would be here at his mother’s house just in case he ended up stranded here again. “They all think she deprived me of everything but the crazy bitch just brings it on herself. Not like I’ve got any room to talk. Hell I married her.”
