Exercising Can Be Harmful to Your Health..

Saturday, November 1st, 2008

Wouldn’t you know it…  This morning in a phone conversation, I told my mom I had to start exercising. I even put on exercise clothes.

But first, I went online to check my E-mail. And it’s a good thing I did because AOL Health had an article, “Exercises You Can Stop Doing.” I don’t know why I was so relieved to see it since I haven’t been doing any exercising, but at least I haven’t been causing myself bodily injuries like those idiots who work out every day.

Truthfully, I sort of wore myself out talking about all the reasons I needed to exercise, then looking for something to exercise in; plus, I had to find my running shoes, no easy task in my closet. I don’t know why they’re called running shoes. The last time I remember running is when I was a kid, and I was being chased by a big dog at the time. Instead of calling them running shoes I should call them ‘sitting at the back of my closet doing nothing shoes.’

I think I’ll put off exercising until I’ve had a nap.

If You Want to Get Rich, Go Into Yard Care, Contracting, or Appliance Repair

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

If you want to get rich in Beaufort, SC, go into yard care, contracting, or appliance repair.

I haven’t had a vacation since I don’t know when, but my yard guy goes to Florida or Vegas every few months, during which time my grass grows knee deep. The guy who works on my appliances is a member of the Yacht Club and sends his kids to private school. You can’t afford a handy man unless you make seven figures. Last year, I tried to hire a guy to make an emergency repair in my house, and he told me he only did emergencies for clients who kept him on retainer. Don’t even try to hire somebody to clean your house around here. They set up an appointment, go room by room, and give you an estimate of what it’s going to cost. For a minimum of $25 per hour, tax free, they’ll agree to do light cleaning. It takes me an hour to straighten my house before they show up, IF they show up. I have to make all the beds, take out the trash and items to be recycled. I am given a list of cleaning items they prefer using. I don’t dare ask them to clean my windows or they’ll walk out and tell all the other cleaning people how unreasonable I am, and my name will be mud in this town.

Oh, and these people don’t have to wait two months for a book contract to go through; then, another two months for payment. You’d better have your checkbook in hand before they come through the door.

I’m definitely in the wrong business!

Welcome Peggy Webb as Guest Blog

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

I am so thrilled to have Peggy Webb as my first guest blogger. Not that she really needs an introduction; she has many devoted fans who flock to the stores the minute her books land on the shelves. I’m one of them!

On a personal note, I’ve known Peggy for, well, more years than I can remember. We’ve truly shared the good, the bad, and the ugly when it comes to publishing. The thing that ANNOYS me about Peggy is the fact she is able to come up with awesome titles. Unfortunately, when I need a good title, she draws a blank. Some friend, huh?

Anyway, I’ve asked Peggy to tell everyone about her new book and what she does when she’s not writing. See, unlike me, Peggy has a life.

So, if you’re looking for a warm, funny, cuddle-up-in-your-favorite-chair kind of read, be sure to check out ELVIS AND THE DEARLY DEPARTED. Once you get a taste of this very talented and prolific author’s books, you’ll come back for more. I know I do!

Peggy Webb to Guest Blog Here on Tuesday October 21

Thursday, October 16th, 2008

Mississippian Peggy Webb is the author of 64 novels, including  DRIVING ME CRAZY, which was submitted for a Pulitzer. Beloved for her comedy and lyrical writing, she has turned her talents from romance to mystery with her debut Southern Cousins Mystery Series. She will be our first guest blogger next Tuesday.


Monday, October 13th, 2008

Okay you guys, I know you’ve done at least ONE crazy thing in your life. Or maybe you have a crazy friend or family member. I certainly do! Some are so kooky they make me look normal. Scary, huh?

I plan to post the anecdotes on my website under Group Therapy. If you’d like to remain anonymous, that’s fine; otherwise, I will assume you want me to tell the world.

Plan to Offer Some Guest Blogs at Group Therapy Blog

Saturday, October 11th, 2008

I am going to be doing a few new things with my blogs. First, I am networking with other blogs. I will also do a blog tour of seven or eight sites. I’ll inform readers in time for the release of my second book in the CRAZY series, book #2 titled NUTCASE.

Since I know many fine writers, I plan to offer guest blogs so be sure to keep an eye out.

Boycotting the Olympics

Saturday, August 16th, 2008

I don’t want to step on anybody’s toes, but I was not happy to see that the Olympics were going to be held in China. This has to do with human rights violations, their connections with Sudan, and how they’ve treated the Tibetans. The poor Dahli Llama who has done nothing but promote peace now lives in exile. Why pick on him? He’s always smiling. He even has a good sense of humor, which I have found truly lacking in our won government. I was annoyed that Bush gave a speech at the opening ceremonies. But what could Bush do? We owe China so much money that it would kill us if they insisted we immediately pay off the debt. Anyway, I boycotted the Olympics in my home. It’s not like a made impact since I’m the only one who lives here, but I tried to do my part. For what it was worth.
