Welcome Dream Big Partner: Obsolete Childhood!!

I am pleased to welcome the latest blogger to become a Dream Big Partner: Obsolete Childhood!

 

Here is an excerpt from the Obsolete Childhood’s About page::

***** FOR THOSE WANTING TO KNOW THE PURPOSE OF THIS BLOG: THERE ISN’T ONE BESIDES GIVING ME SOMEWHERE TO BLATHER ON ABOUT STUFF THAT MAKES ME HAPPY OR ANNOYS THE CRAP OUT OF ME.  DON’T BOTHER LOOKING FOR A FOCUS..(Suze has no focus)*****

 

DISCLAIMER: I just want it to go on the record that I will take the devil’s advocate position on EVERYTHING just to annoy and or educate people. NO ONE has a clue whether I am democrat, republican, independent or nothing at all; nor will they be able to tell with any confidence that I am Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Hindi or a worshipper of Ba’al! I like intelligent, non-confrontational (occasional confrontation is actually good for the heart ya know) discussions on politics, religion, sexual orientation, education, but never sports (sorry I just can’t go somewhere where I am clueless!) I am an equal opportunity basher of anything that is socially unacceptable to talk about. put that in your pipes and smoke it! And if you are somehow offended? good, maybe it will make you think.

Now, all about ME as that is the really important stuff.

I was born and raised in Virginia, have visited almost every state in the Union, and have lived in about fifteen of those states at various times in my life. I was “stuck” in Texas for almost twenty years and remember fondly one year of those twenty.

I also claim no political party, but I might be (in another blogger’s words) a “flaming liberal and damned proud of it!

I have been married forever to Poor George. he is only called “poor” because the Poor man has been married to me for donkey’s years.  We live in Enid, Oklahoma and I have to quietly admit it is the very best place on the entire planet to live!

I have an incredibly warped sense of humor, get irritated by maroons (we shall be polite and not call them morons), love to travel to foreign countries and wander around my new home state of Oklahoma.  I especially like going to out of the way or odd places so I can whing on about them in the blog.

I tend to babble in here, hate to write in “proper english” even though I am quite good at it, love to annoy people, or create stupid Limericks.

You can find Suze’s logo in my sidebar and on the Partners’ Page at the top of my website!  When you visit be sure to tell her Danny sent ya!

Yes, She Stole a Cane…..

Who's My Favorite Today?

Image result for pink cane

Yes, you read the title correctly……  My three year old stole a cane…….from an old lady.  Okay, a very mature lady.

We went to a restaurant a few days ago and it was a buffet.  We don’t go to this type of restaurant often and it was the first time Kate had ever been.  I told her she had to come get food with me.  She said, “I’m going to sit at the table.  Just bring my food to me.”

Obviously she does not know how a buffet works.  I told her that she could not stay by herself at the table and she had to tell me what foods she wanted put on her plate.  Begrudgingly, she came with me.

As I was concentrating on the food and maneuvering the buffet, Kate was behind me at my elbow.  Next thing I hear from this lady in her 80’s, “Honey…

My A – Z Codependency Challenge – K

Diary of a Recovering Codependent

Knack, Kowtowing, Keelhauling, Knowing, Knee-jerk, Know

I’m going to make this short and sweet.

I had a knack (a tendency to do something) to kowtowing (act in an excessively subservient manner) knowing (done in full awareness or consciousness) that it wasn’t right or healthy for me and a knee jerk (automatic and unthinking) reaction to keelhauling (severely punishing or reprimanding) myself.

Now with that said; Today I know who I am, I know what I want, I know what I deserve, and I know what I will tolerate. Mic drop. (LOL)

MEET MONIQUE SINGLETON

lucinda E Clarke

I’ve often said that travellers so easily become writers. We see the world from so many different angles learn that different cultures have different priorities, different aspirations and different mindsets. Maybe that is one reason that Monique began writing?

Do read all of this blog as Monique is offering a free copy of her book, and I’ve sneakily put the link right at the end!

MONIQUE SINGLETON

As the daughter of a British soldier and his Dutch wife, Monique was born in an English military hospital in Germany.  The family toured the world where she was exposed to many cultures and countries. Finally settling down in the Netherlands she pursued a career in Art and later in ICT.

In 2011 Monique started putting the scenes she had running around in her head, down to paper.  Scenes led to a story, the story to a book, and the first book to a series.

Things to Remember when Seeking Book Reviews

Pearls Before Swine

Craft a Professional Email

There’s a lot that goes into what it means to be professional so I won’t linger, but you don’t have to have worked in corporate to understand it. In today’s world, you don’t have to be anyone special to get tons of emails. With Social Media, everyone practically has one as it is needed for most social media platforms. In short, we all get them and we all scan and then delete them. To increase your chance of getting your email noticed, be sure your email is first professional.

Don’ts:

  • Don’t use a blanket “To Whom it May Concern” or “Dear Blogger” or “Dear Book Blogger” or worse “Hey”
  • Don’t talk about how good the book is.
  • Don’t abbreviate words. This isn’t a text message. This is a professional business correspondence. (no IKR, THUR, THO, etc.)
  • Don’t attach your book(s) to the email. You don’t…
