Aug lst already. We expect showers tonight. Aug holds 4 apts for me for doctors. A subject I hate. Mamo coming up this week and always frighten cancer has come back. I think it is going on 9 year but will know when I see the surgeon as have to keep going to her after mamo.

I have been doing some articles for the Sr. center newsletter as a contribitor. Something to keep my mind active. Have been looking into the magazines on the web and may try writing and getting paid for short stories.

Otherwise, same old song an dance, washing clothes, cleaning, walking, etc.

May work on In plain sight today. Only can spend so much time on it before I am hurting sitting too long with back.

Maureen- I noticed that also about Frances. Good observation.

Today on FOX & Friends they were talking about QR app at restaurants and security. Kurt did not give information but said to check his site. cyberguy.com. It is where you download onto your phone. My kids have had me do this but I do not fully understand. Kurt is on FOX a lot so he can be trusted. I have never checked his site.

Still in a air quality alert here.

Have a good day. emoticon

Good morning! Rain predicted for much of the day. I’d like to get some writing done.

Maureen don’t panic hahahahaha. I’m toying with a plot that involves erasing cyber-tracks so a person can try to remain hidden. Not an easy thing to do without sophisticated equipment and knowledge. I figured this was a good site to experiment with because a kindergartner could break the message setup and it doesn’t even allow deleting. You have to edit instead. So I can play around all day and trace my own activities. I doubt any researcher in the vast future will need my posts anyway and since the whole site will be gone soon it’s just as well. I think I’ve figured out what my characters will do but if you see any other strange posts from me you’ll know what’s going on. emoticon

Good Evening Ladies. Rainy day here all day. It has been my usual busy Saturday .Started with getting up a little on the late side, starting coffee and then striping the bed and remaking with clean sheets and such. Get myself washed and dressed and then up and down to start the laundry. No reason to go out as the rain has been falling in starts and stops all day.
Frances what is happening with you?? all the messages I thought you had posted have disappeared ?? I've checked back to July27th and all your posts have been "edited/deleted" from my screen and further back to the 25th.?? Yours seem to be the only ones missing. Have you given up on us? The most recent one shows a little green header beside your name saying "On line now" Not much else happening here so I'm going to go find my book for a while. In case I don't come back here tonight will wish you all Good Night God Bless Sweet Dreams Stay Safe. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Maureen emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Frances, I know a lot of them you have to pay on demand for books. I am only interested in getting a book published, as long as I do not have to pay them money to put it together. I am not interested in becoming a famous writer at my age. Nor to I want to have to keep writing for them on a schedule. With the arthritis in my hands and my back problem I can not sit for hours like you can. Once I find out more I will let you know. I should know before a week or two once I can figure how to do what she wants so she can see it.

That link was to show me how to do what she wanted done. It was not the one I sent the story too. The one I sent the story to said Wings express for ebooks.

I saw that there as I tried to figure out how to do what she wanted.

My friend emailed me and said to to shift and hit enter after each paragraph. I never had a problem sending my story to others and even a while back sent one to Wings express but it was not what they were looking for.

I appreciate your advice. Thanks.

Hello all,

Doing a quick check-in.

I have been doing off and on again today. I did water my tomatoes and peppers as still no rain. My son set up automatic watering for my plants on my deck so they look nice.

Still hazy from the smoke.

Frances. A friend went with wings and got books published and she did not have to pay.
She gave me the site.

This is the site.

I always ask questios before I sign anything..
I never had problems sending to others. I sent to them years ago but they were not interested in what I sent. She seems interested in what I put in the query. I wonder if she will take an email one.

Send email to person who published with them. Waiting to hear.

Help. Got this from wings and do now want to have to change stuff on my computer as I am not computer savy. No one else had a problem.when I sent it.

Hello Ms. Sorensen,
I've just received your submission, Another Lifetime, and will be pleased to consider it for publication by Wings. However, the manuscript contains a hard return after each paragraph, making it very difficult to read. Please resubmit without the returns. The parameters should be 12 pt, 15 pt. space between lines. I'll be glad to read it when it comes back. Thanks.
Jeanne

Hello all,

We had a nice river cruise on the St. Croix River with family last night. After we went to a pizza place and had a good time. Hard to believe my third son is 60 years old.

Yesterday the smoke from the fires in Canada were so bad, the air was full of smoke and one could smell it. Today is a little better. They are warning people about the dangers.

We are also having the leaves changing here. I am not a fall or winter person.

I somehow managed to send it to Wings and they said they would contact me in a few days to let me know they got it. Then will see what happens.

Sun is out and a beautiful day after a cool morning. More Sat and Sun. Off to fold my towels.

I was all set to send to wings but when I put in the email other emails came up for me to set up an account which I do not want to do, so I am not sending to wings. I started looking for others last night and found some So will start sending some today.

We are going to 54 tonight and tomorrow night. Can not believe it as fall weather. Leaves are starting to turn color on bushes to a red which they do inthe fall. My rose of sharon is full bloom and Iris are still coming up. Looks like fall is approaching fast here. And then again we still are getting storms. The Cape they were not sure of a tornardo last night but heard nothing so guess it was ok.

Well, washing clothes and towels and a few things and then my walk and lunch.

I don’t know how many local health care workers are not immunized but I know nursing homes in my area have trouble getting workers. I think this China virus needs to go back to China, the lab not the people.

Good morning , Rainy day here with about 68F degrees on the temp outside my kitchen window.
Frances , it is nice to have your GD for company . Hope her practice is not rained out. You will miss her when she goes away with her friends till the rest of your family returns. Sounds like you still have some family fairly close most of the time..
Leona good news that your GS is getting things ready for your son to be in his own home. Hope all goes smoothly and recovery continues.
Rosie, hope your internet problems are soon resolved/repaired and you are back to keeping in touch.
Time to get myself some lunch and clean up after both the coffee cups form breakfast and whatever dishes I mess up with this meal. emoticon emoticon BBL Maureen

Today, I will work on the back of the book and then set up an email with a query and send, hopefully as we expect storms.

Aug is near and soon we say goodbye to our friends in other countries. So sad. Why we did not get an explanation is beyond me.

Leona hope your son is home soon.
Mine goes in for some sort of an operation on the heart with a stink. Never a dull moment and all caused from virus. So becareful.

Thank you Maureen.
My grandson lives about 40 minutes from me and close to his father. My son has a large two story home so he will need someone until he can walk better. My grandson brought his bed to a downstairs room but my son will still need some assistance for a bit.

I am also interested in their books. At least, we will have emails so they can let us know what is happening.

Another heat advisory day here.

Have a good day,

Popping in to catch up on the latest from everyone . Not much happening here so will just stay quiet and veg out. Leona , good to hear your son is doing better, after such a rough go. A long trip for you to visit him but wonderful to see and know he is getting better and will be coming closer to home soon, Is your GS also near so you can visit more easily when your son is home with him?? emoticon
Waiting to know when Camey and Frances will have books in print and where I can get them.
Time to get off here and find my book for a while. Wishing each of you Good Night God Bless Sweet Dreams Stay Safe. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Maureen

Frances- What a wonderful surprise. emoticon

My daughter and I drove to Rochester yesterday. I drove to her place and she drove to the Mayo Clinic. Made a long day for me. It takes me about an hour and fifteen minutes to get to her place and the the drive to Rochester is about an hour and a half.

Great news is my son is walking much more (with a walker) and he is remembering more. He said his brain was without oxygen for a bit. He told us they had to use the paddles on him for the heart stop so we were close to losing him.
Hopefully he can go home next week but he will have to live with his son for a time.

I am tired today so mainly crocheted. I finished a scarf.

Have a emoticon good night.

Frances, my gd did that to me too.

I just finished with 50,000 pages give or take. I am sore and stayed too long and will be hurting but it is done. Now, tomorrow I will put it on a disc and send it out. I want it on the disc so it will get lost if the computer goes crazy. Romance only needs 50,000. My other one is romance but 75,000.

The south usualy gets them. We had one almost touch down in the square which is unusual for us. It is a cloud of wind that circles around and if it touches the ground it can destroy anything in its way as it moves.

Frances, hope the coffee wakes you up. You need to slow down with the novels. I think you are getting over tired.

Well,, we were ok but in the square of my city trees fell down. I looked out the window and saw a big tree near my house blow back and forth and the flowers were falling off my rose of Sharon.
It was scary for a few moments and then the rain poured and it was all over about 8:30 and the warning was off.

Don't know what it is, could be arthritis but getting up in the morning I am always hurting with pain and then about an hour later I am on. Weather here is cold so I am in sweat pants as it is suppose to go to 57 tonight and rest of week only in the 70 range. I will chg if it warms up but my legs are cold. My hand is hurting so once I finish here I will go get the BG and start putting some on my hands and legs.

Yesterday, was easy we had sandwiches. Today is franks.

As to the novel, I thought I only had 5 chapters left yesterday but I had 34 instead of 30 so hope to fiinish them today. Then will send it out and mention my other books.

I have a scene where Denise's mother dies of cancer and her father leaves home without leaving his daughter a note. She has looked for him for years but has never found him. Her father was in love with a girl in Paris before he married her mother. She meets up with his son never knowing he is he half brother. They become friends. Now, the hard part is he takes her to meet his father, but only as a friend, and she does not recognize it is her father because of all the years passed. When they take his father, to his wife grave she asks him how he know her mother. He says she is his wife. Now, how do I have her react when she finally realizes he is her father?i have been working on this scene and getting nowhere fast.
A publisher told me that I should show some emotion. I have had them hug and cry but what else to make it so readers will feel sad and then joy?

Good Evening. It has been a strange day here from the time I got up. First the Coffee Machine died and spilled water all over before I caught it. Had to make it in the Keurig one cup at a time . Special trip to Canadian Tire store for a new Black and Decker Coffee machine as Wal-Mart was out of any kind of coffee system other than Keurig. Was a little surprised and even had a sales clerk with me in Wal-Mart and she could not find anything like a regular coffee system. Rather an expensive day and very unsettling.
From the series I'm watching "Science of Prevention " they have no cure for alzheimers and what really triggers it . This is a 10 or 12 part series and a complete package to purchase is $197 U.S. from California. I've watched each part from #1 to #6 so far , but not sure if I want to order the full program with all the extra stuff not shown on the daily sections. It will run for another 2 or 3 days . Will have to think about it a little more. I seem to get a lot of Health stuff coming our of that part of the country Another one is "The Food Revolution " which has been running annually for over 10 years. These show up on my regular email line and mostly end up in the delete files,
Well , I am feeling very weary with all the strange things that have happened to me today so I will just with you all Good Night God Bless Sweet Dreams Stay Safe., emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Maureen emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Thanks Leona. I have 7 more to go. I hope I can finish today and send it out. It is hard with the back pain so can not sit too long. I sit for 3 chapters if not long and then get up and walk l0 min.

Frances, don't get over tired as nothing comes out good. I have added to my novel and deleted.I learned a lesson not to make a series and then divide it into two books with copy and paste.The story sounds good to me but I am not the one who will publish it. My gf loves it but all gf usually do, excep some that will tell you they don't.

Deleted l0 emails to spam and will see what happens now if I get more.

Delightful day but storms tonight. He is having coffee with his friends, once every two weeks so I got stuff done.

Mornings are hard for me till later when BG starts to work. This getting old is for the birds, not me, but just have to survive. LoL

Hi Folks ., Really Late tonight as I got caught up in listening to an article on prevention of Alzhiemers.? .sorry if my spelling is bad. It was part of a series and I was curious. A lot of my emails are from the United States recently with Medical programs out of California. Some are very interesting but also want me to buy DVD's and other material . Not sure about some of the deals. One had a phone number so may decide to check further.
Not much else for the moment as I just realized the time is getting late.
Will caatchup again in the morning., emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon Maureen emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

Camey- Good work on so many chapters.

Frances- I meant to tell you after I saw the beginning and end of your book, I am one that will read the end of the book. I need to know especially if the children are OK. I once read a book I won that had missing children and at the end, they had been in a snuff film. I emailed the author and threw away the book.
Take care of the children and unborn as far as I am concerned. They are innocent.

My 3rd son will be 60 on Thursday and we had to (or the cruise line did) cancel his birthday cruise to Italy and Greece. My daughter came up with the idea and we will do a St. Croix River Cruise out of Stillwater, Minnesota.

By the way, Stillwater is the birthplace of Minnesota and was a logging town.

Tomorrow we will go to Rochester to see my son.

My son-in-law is back at work and feels good about it. He is now using a walker and not a wheelchair.

Have a good night, emoticon

Frances, thanks for all that info. That was a lot of work and I am sure everyone appreciates what you did, I know I do.

Tomorrow, I will delete all the list and put it in spam again. Right now he has tried every avenue of software to see what I use an say it has expired. He uses my email name to sometime and addresses me. I still think this is the hacker that got me twice because when he left a message with my name on my phone I recognized his accent. I have been very careful.

On a good note, I worked on 6 chapters yesterday reading them again and watching for any signs of paragraphs that are in the second one. I hope to work somemore today and get a few more chapters. I have 23 more to go before I can send it to Wings.

As for the second one I still have publishers I am waiting on so Wings wants it only. The one I am going to send the publishers were two years ago and I just did not find anymore to send too. I need to get to library but just too busy to go and sit there and write down publishers names. On my good days don't want to be at the library but enjoying it while I can.

We went grocery shopping after I felt better this morning as awoke with aches and pains.
Stuff is put away and wash in machine and no cooking as yesterday made two meatloafs and today will have second. Tomorrow, sandwiches and maybe the next day a egg salad or pancakes and eggs. Cooking is going to be less if I can help it.

It is getting warm and going to 90. Ac will be back on.

Time is getting closer to spark closing and going to miss it.

Good Morning. Peeked out at the thermometer on my shady veranda 81F just now. The other one with the sun on it is30C or in the high 80s F. Quite warm . but looks also like a nice breeze as the leaves on the trees in the neighbors back yard are waving nicely. That is out my kitchen window on the way back from checking the temps.
Did not get home from our Cruise Night till after 9,30 and could not get settled to get on line. For some reason things were very slow on my computer. Not sure why...
Not so much else happening here. Time to think about getting a sandwich and another coffee .
Hope you are all having a great day. emoticon emoticon Maureen

Frances, I don't like a small boat on a lake, I was in one with DH way back when the kids were little, and the kids were with us. My heart was in my throat the whole time, and another time DH and I went out fishing in a boat on a lake, (too big of a lake for me) by ourselves, again not for me, and we did not get any fish just small things, and were ate up by mosquitos big time, also one time we were in a boat with the kids, kids had life jackets on, he told the kids, to jump out and head to shore, I was scared then also, they jumped out, but, I think, they were scared to at first but, they did. they went to shore and so did we. Big lakes and small boats for me do not mix, I am not a swimmer and can not swim. But a canoe on a river was better and there are/were other people around to help, if needed. I have never been on a Kayak and do not ever plan on going in one. But, I'm not going on a boat/Canoe any more,

I have Frontier for my landline phone and internet and when I get a call/spam, it comes up on my caller id, potential spam,

I am on AOL and they do a good job of putting the spam on the spam file.

Frances- Great information.

I get phone calls from North Branch all the time and I do not know anyone there except my church. I did get a spam call one time from Thief River (a company) and answered it wondering why they called me and not my son as he gets dirt from them.

Rosie- How fun. I used to do a canoe and also did tubing one time.
I am not a great swimmer anymore but can still swim.

I almost drowned in the White River near Carlsbad Caverns in New Mexico when I was a child. It was my mother, my sister, a friend and we were walking on large boulders and stepped into an area where there was no boulder. Somehow my mother saved us and she did not swim. We had to learn to swim. I made sure my children learned to swim and all 5 were on the high school swim team. My father heard us yell and he and his friend thought we were playing and did not come. The rule at the Cabin was never yell help when in the lake and I made sure none of their friends yelled it either.

Great news. I have told you about the little black children getting shot and dying in North Minneapolis. The little 10 year old black boy who was shot in April has lifted his head. He was in the back seat and was shot on the head. Prayers will continue from me for him and his family and friends. emoticon That is a good sign I believe.

Today on You Tube I found two movies that had Boris Karloff as Mr. Wong who solves crimes. I never knew he had made any other than the horror movies.

Have a good night.
