Currently I'm writing two novels simultaneously - one at a time has become too routine.

The fifth book in the Heilsing cases - The Darkness Within and What Dreams May Follow, a sequel to my first novel which lead me to the book that I am currently reading.

Never Stop Dreaming - I'm having to reread it to keep all of the minor character's names consistent.

Love ya,

Sally

I recently finished the book Shesus. It is a little hokey but a great story line about the future. Though it is not a story about transgender, it has a good gender flair. Over all a good read at a discount table price.

Johnathan Livingston Seagull - Richard Bach

So many parallels do I see in this short story, it's so simple, it's beautiful, it's wonderful to bring a tear to my eye.

Be free, and love...

"Goat Husbandry" McKensey

It's a good look at early husbandry in England from the 40's to the 50's, containing a good bit of amusing and practical advice.

Hugs,

I recently bought "Rise of the Rocket Girls: The Women Who Propelled us, from Missiles to the Moon to Mars" by Nathalia Holt and I have started it. So far it's an enjoyable read about the women who worked behind the scenes but performed a vital role in the space program.

But then I saw Ben Bernanke's recent book at the library "The Courage to Act: A Memoir of a Crisis and Its Aftermath" about how the government and financial institutions dealt with the recession of 2007. I found this to be really interesting and it is well written.

I am currently reading 3 different books. The main one I'm reading is Vengeance In Death by JD Robb (aka Nora Roberts). It's part of the "In Death" series (a romantic suspense about a cop in the future). 

I'm also reading Shadow Play by Iris Johanson.

And an ebook called Suborn Rising: Beneath The Fall by Aaron Safronoff (I am not sure if this is in any other form).

Not including these 3 books, I have read 33 books in all of 2016.

Hhmmm....Not currently reading any real books  but I'm reviewing as many journal articles relating to the "Cloward & Piven Strategy" (including its tactical applications, current & historic) as I can manage w/o making a 56 mile drive to a university library.

The Silent Deep - The Royal Navy Submarine Service Since 1945 - Peter Hennessy & James Jinks.

I have a bit of a militaristic background and have a fascination with submarines. I have over thirty books covering their history, technical and use.

It makes a change from my detective novels (especially Agatha Christie).

The Imp Series by Debra Dunbar. I'm on book four now. It's a great fantasy series about an Imp who has been hiding out here on Earth as a human for forty years, which is a really long time for demons because the Angels are always hunting them down and killing them. Since she is an Imp she loves all manner of practical jokes, causing trouble, and generally being naughty but she's learned to tone it down to not get caught. Her exposure to humans has also changed her in some ways so that now she actually is beginning to have some very human-like emotions which is where the author gets a good portion of her plot intrigues from!

I actually just finished a book by Dennis Weatley called "The Devil Rides Out", about a group of friends who must rescue another friend who has become entangled with a band of unscruppeless satanists in 1930's England. In the process of rescuing their friend, they discover that the satanist priest is trying to locate a talisman in order to aquire new black magic powers, which would result in plunging the world into an apocalyptic war. Their task now becomes not mearly saving their friend, they must kill the priest. Their pursuit of the priest takes them through the world of the living and the dead, and pits them against the Devil himself.?

 

Next, I might start my yearly reading of "The Lord of the Rings". Obviously a favorite!?

 

Lots of love,

Timber Wolf?

      I don’t know, something about this thread makes me not want to reply to it ...  ha ha !
    • jae bear
      Oh my gosh I can’t believe you girls are having so much fun without me !  Ha ha Ha !  I like running around target looking for decent T-shirts, and lately I’m eyeballing a lot of nice tops, but I live in my mom jeans, and so far that’s what I’m most comfortable in. I really would love to find a few more colorful high tops, right now I just have my cute little purple ones, and some universal unisex Brown hightops that I use for everything from working out to roaming around the warehouse at work. I find the most difficult part of this shopping experience is that while I wear a 1X in most tops, sometimes they are formfitting or stretchy and I need a 2X, if I wash them sometimes they shrink and I need a 3X!  It really bums me out that I bought this really cute purple top in 2X,  it’s actually one of the Lee Rider series that goes with their mom jeans that I love, and it’s a rather violet color that is adorable, except the darn thing doesn’t fit, it’s way way way too big !  I’m super bummed out but I think I’m going to donate it to a friend of mine, she’s gonna love it !  Hugs,  Jackie

      Oh my gosh Julie you kill me !!!  Ha ha !!!!  Stop taking videos of me dancing in front of my door way !😉  I really think Dr. Shih is an exceptional person as well as an amazing surgeon, I’ve had a lot of surgeries in my lifetime, like I mean a crazy amount, surgery after surgery after surgery just to put me all back together, and while the surgeons were nice they were nothing like Dr. Shih! I just realized something else, my spellchecker doesn’t catch it when I voice text it comes up as “doctor she”,  this seems oddly appropriate to me !  I have to agree with you Carolyn Marie, Kaiser really is taking the bull by the horn‘s here, or rather the cow by the nose? I can’t think of a good analogy ...  at any rate I feel fantastic, even after dealing with lots of crappy paperwork all day long at work I still feel great !  And I’m very excited to go see my new electrologist on Sunday !   I did a lot of searching for minivans today I think I struck the jackpot, I found a 2006 and a 2007 Ford Freestar minivan, both about $1700, I’ll just pick a good one and drive home, drop it off at my mechanic and make sure it’s all tippy top and smile all the way down the road. The Ford minivans work perfect for me because they have a removable center console insert under the dash, And since I only drive using my left foot I take out the middle console cover and put a floormat there so I can rest my right foot in the middle of the floor while driving. Then with a 2006 or 2007 minivan in good running condition I will be able to drive for Lyft and Uber to make extra bucks!  Luckily I get to continue earning a modest salary while telecommuting to my current job, I’m going to set up a laptop and a Wi-Fi hotspot to login to work and network into all of the sales portals and machine program access points so I can do my job in between driving trips, I can also answer customer emails and questions, do bookkeeping on QuickBooks and even process payroll with direct deposit to all the employees accounts. Hopefully this will work well for me, at any rate I’ll sell my two old Ford Windstar minivan’s and recoup almost all of the money from buying the new one, or I guess I should say new-ish one, however once I steam clean the living snot out of it  The interior will feel just like a brand new van, I’m really good at steam cleaning car interiors, like I mean ridiculously good !  Hugs,  Jackie

      Avra, don't let fear overwhelm you. By facing my fears I have been able to get over myself. I have gained confidence by living, on a temporary (usually only for a day) basis as Julie. I always longed to be female, my true inner gender, and by being Julie I am able to experience my life as a woman. I don't want to be treated as anyone other than who I present myself as - an ordinary woman, doing ordinary things, in an ordinary way... like sitting at a roadside coffee shop patio drinking coffee and visiting a friend, with the sun shining and a cooling breeze wafting through the lightly treed area... and my friend looking at me and smiling, then commenting on how relaxed and happy I am being out in public as Julie. I am am on a journey and I am trying to be positive as I proceed, and I am trying to enjoy the journey... this is not a trial run, it's my one shot to a happy, fulfilling life! I love it!  Hugs & Smiles  Julie J

      Hi Adaline, I didn't get a chance to go out shopping on Thursday. It was pouring rain and I just didn't want to drive for 3 hours in the rain. I had an interesting day anyway, so all is good.  Hope you are enjoying your journey. It's good to keep your eye on the prize, but we have to enjoy the journey getting there!  Hugs & Smiles  Julie J 
    • Adaline
      Julie,   Sorry for the delay.  OMG it sounds like you had the best time ever.  You can never have enough clothes, an extra dress will never go to waste and is just the right thing on those nothing to wear days.  I am sooo jealous.  To have a friend that can help you with hair and makeup is just to die for.  My style is so different from the other girls in my group.  One is such a tomboy, another is kind of a mix between goth and the matrix, looks great on her but would make me look like a reject from a mad max movie.  I’m such a girly girl.  I love dresses, makeup and heels.  If I’m going to wear pants they need to be cute, capris are just the thing.  I could really use a friend that understands my style and can give me some tips.  Who am I kidding, I really need a full time consultant.  My wife has no problem telling me when something looks bad but isn’t much help in putting an outfit together.     Someday boy mode will be a thing of the past, then look out everyone, Adaline is here to stay.  Just have to wait for the right time.  Meanwhile I’ll live vicariously through girls like you.     Keep me up dated.  I want to here all about your trip.    Hugs Adaline
    • Jani
      Well thats interesting!  I guess she doesn't see this as a threat to your relationship and that it suits you well.  (the change, not the dress)  Maybe this was helpful for your wife in coming around as well.     Jani   ps: Although the dress does suit you well! 
    • Jani
      You have to ask yourself, who are you coming out for?  I believe the answer is you!     I get that you may not want to do this face to face although doing so with some of the family might actually be beneficial for them and you.  You can engage is a constructive conversation and they will get to see the honesty in your eyes.   Maybe just create the video for your brother.   Tell him you're doing it this way because you know he hasn't been the most accepting but you hope he can see that this is a important and meaningful decision.  You can say you hope he thinks about what this decision (to transition) means to you.  You can close with asking for his love and support.     Hugs, Jani      
    • Adaline
      Jackie,   That is such awesome news.  I’m sooo happy for you I can barely stand it.  I’m attending a conference in Harrisburg and it was almost killing me that I didn’t have a single opportunity to reply.  With curves and the new look, watchout world here she comes..   Thank you so much for the encouraging words.  You are the best.  You have every right to be as proud as you can be.  This is your day, own it.   Hugging you and beaming with joy, Adaline.
