A small selection of posts I have enjoyed in the last few days and I hope you will head over to enjoy in full.. thanks Sally.

The first post is from Jan Sikes and I was delighted to be included in Jan’s October book reviews along with Shannon Myers, Mae Clair, Teagan Geneviene, Craig Boyack Teri Polen and Breakfield and Burkey.

I had quite a busy month of reading and I am happy to share my 4 and 5-star reviews on some fabulous books! Because I have so many, I won’t be sharing the blurbs but will have purchase links if you want to know more.

The next post is from Marcia Meara who is back with some WhyWriteWrong posts on how we can all get hung up by the usage of tenses of words and their meanings.

#Misused Words #Confusing Homophones 

Happy Fall, Y’all! I have decided to revive an old series, #WhyWriteWrong, because I find I’m still being pulled out of what I’m reading when words used incorrectly pop up. Sometimes I’m sure it’s a typo, other times, I’m pretty sure the author is mixed up about the meaning of the word. (Especially if they repeat the same error several times.)

The next post is from Debby Gies joins Colleen Chesebro’s weekly poetry challenge with a thought provoking Haibun and Haiku about the state of the world and whether a higher power might consider a factory reset!

Tanka Poetry Challenge

Is it Golden Idol Time?

Moses climbed Mount Sinai following the voice of God calling unto him. God wrote the Ten Commandments with his own finger, searing the laws into the stone tablets.

While Moses was gone for 40 days and 40 nights up the mountain, the natives below began to lose faith about the existence of God and began their doubts about Moses’ return. As people often do in human nature when they harbor doubt, gossip spreads among them and a new ‘want-to-be’ leader steps up and antagonizes by spewing doubt and fallacies about God, it doesn’t take people long to hitch their wagons to persuasion.

I cannot believe we are one week into November and coming up to 3 yrs of covid who would have thunk 2 years ago?

November 7th …at 2 A.M. is the end of Daylight Saving Time. Set your clocks back one hour on Saturday night at bedtime!… Personally, I think it is about time this is scrapped…What do you think?

Benjamin Franklin’s “An Economical Project,” written in 1784, is the earliest known proposal to “save” daylight. It was whimsical in tone, advocating laws to compel citizens to rise at the crack of dawn to save the expense of candlelight:

“Every morning, as soon as the Sun rises, let all the bells in every church be set ringing: and if that is not sufficient, let cannon be fired in every street to wake the sluggards effectually… . Oblige a man to rise at four in the morning, and it is probable that he will go willingly to bed at eight in the evening.”

It might have been pertinent then but now???

This weeks Tune…November Rain…
