MY HONEST REVIEW

I thought this was a good time travel viking Romance story was fantastic. I wasn’t sure what to expect and I knew what I thought of my last time travel book read and that wasn’t much. I was very happy when this time travel book was the exact opposite and was a page turner. 

I really liked how Donna who is from the 21st century goes back to viking time to teach the Viking men and Alpha-Males that woman can do important jobs and they can be depended…

Beware of the Book Exchange Pyramid Scheme!

BEWARE EVERYONE!!

Perfectly Tolerable

Have you seen this post, or one similar?

Sounds great doesn’t it? When you comment “in” you will be sent instructions along the line of:

It sounds great doesn’t it? What a simple way to get 25 books! Worst case, you send a single book and only get 1 or 2 books back, right?

WRONG!

This is a pyramid scheme and it is illegal in the United States.  Not only do you run the risk of not getting books you run the risk of getting into legal trouble.

Here are some articles with more information so you don’t have to take my word for it:

I don’t know how “dangerous” it actually is to participate in these.  I doubt the US government is going to crack down on book pyramid schemes, I’m sure they have bigger fish to fry.  But, for me at least, its not worth…

Join In The Fun! Join In The October 2018 Tea Party! 

The Little Mermaid

What better way to suggest friendliness – and to create it – than with a cup of tea?” -J. Grayson Luttrell

Aloha, charming WordPressers!

I’m delighted to announce you that The Little Mermaid is hosting her third monthly tea party on her website. What? A tea party? On WordPress? When? How? For whom? Alright..alright…take it easy. I’m coming on to your questions.

Classically, a ‘tea party’ makes one think of superiorly elegant and elaborate affairs of the Victorian times. It also conjures up images of fluffy scones, flavoursome muffins, Devonshire Cream and dainty sandwiches served on fine silver or deluxe bone china. Still, the elemental part of a tea party remains the affable exchange of dialogue among the invitees. Almost indistinguishably, the tea party that I am organizing is an online social event hosted in honour of bloggers, that is US! Blogging is most enjoyable when it is done interactively…

Ancestors

WHAT A PRETTY PICTURE IN THE FALL (2017).

Ever wonder about who is in your ancestry? Ever wonder what kind of pets your ancestors as children? I have wondered about both these questions. Why? That I’m really not sure but it might be the stories I’ve heard growing up in my family. As for the pets well I don’t know anything about that except I hope they were animal people like our family was.

As it happened, my one niece when she was in highschool had to research her family tree and now her brother who just turned 16 had to research his family tree not to mention someone else researched our family tree/ancestors for both sides of the family the Miller’s and the Stewart’s.

The results proved to be quite interesting. Please understand we were only given the Stewart ancestry. As I said the results were interesting. You see I found out that the one Queen Elizabeth was in my Ancestry(not the one that’s reigning now). It goes as far back to Alfred The Great. Pretty Cool Huh? I didn’t even get a wedding invitation to Kate & William’s Wedding, Meghan & Harry’s Wedding. What’s the deal not sending invitations to your ancestors? What gives?🤷🤷🤷🤷 

Well if you have any interesting ancestors in your family please let me know.
