Hello all,
I took a bit of a break to spend a lot of time thinking and more time writing the next book in the Blind Series. I thought I'd dangle some teasers here for you. I won't guarantee that each of these teasers will make the final cut, but the book is being written. In the process it is some... Read more of this blog post »

Karen Rose Smith Karen Rose Smith's blog:

I’ve used Noisetrade for years to find new music; you can download EPs and sometimes full albums for free, or in exchange for a tip of your choice. You do get signed up for the musician’s mailing list in exchange, but I’ve always found it more than worthwhile.

Let’s talk a little about financial freedom. A lot of people ask me questions around this. The biggest question is about advice on how to create passive income, and the fastest and easiest way to reduce their working hours and earn more.

The second of Henry VIII's wives to be executed, she is a tragic figure, but there is not the same level of outrage over her fate. Many who have studied the life of Anne Boleyn believe that the charges of adultery and incest and... Read more of this blog post »

Dear friends,


Have you ever faced this dilemma?


Almost empty toilet paper roll


It’s the almost-empty toilet paper roll. Does it have 13 squares left or 5? Will it be sufficient for the next visitor? It’s hard to tell, but basic tenets of thrift suggest that we not waste it.
