I try my best to keep the
commentary on this page away from politics and the other bat-poop craziness in
our world. In instances of politics and
religion, there is a very good chance that 50% of your audience will disagree
with you. So, I try to stay away from
those topics to keep the four people who read this blog happy and for the simple
fact that there are countless others who pontificate on those topics.
For 2021, I hope that as a
country we can get back to work and resume what had been our daily routines. I do feel that once people have something to
do other than watch Netflix and complain on Facebook and Twitter that we will
all regain some sanity.
This year, I hope to announce
that I will be publishing my first book.
I honestly feel that I am not far away from that milestone, but you
never know what will happen until that publish button is pushed. It will be exciting when it does happen. If you like fantasy, evil monks, magic, lots
of epic battles, and farm girls that can kick some ass, I might have a book or
five that may interest you. This process
has been years in the making, and as much as it has frustrated me at times that
I had not yet published, I think the wait has given me time to write the best
book that I can. Hopefully, I will have
more good news soon.
I know in these times there are
plenty of people struggling. If you want
an escape, Hoopla and Overdrive are free apps in which you can borrow digital media
from your library. All you need is a
library card (which your local library will give you for free) and a wireless
device and you are good to go. I believe
each app allows you to have around 10 borrows a month. So that is a lot of free movies, music, and
books (especially for those in a homeschooling situation) to help get you
through this time. I know it does not
fix the world’s problems, but it can give you some enjoyment in your day. You can also make recommendations to your library. I have done this and over a dozen of my
suggestions have been purchased. Most
libraries are in the business of serving their community and are often very
eager to be responsive to their patrons.
And it costs you nothing.
To everyone out there, best
wishes and good luck for a bright and happy 2021!
