Okay, this is not for the faint at heart. This is a very serious site. I would advise for tissue and for a moment… no several moments set aside for thought.
The Love of a Mother and Her 3 Year-old Daughter, who Were Attacked With Acid by Their Husband/Father
This makes me go to the angry side of myself.
This is about brutality and it is about love. This, to me, is the raw evidence that the Muslim faith is not a faith of love and kindness but a brutal oppression of those who are the weakest among its society. But then we have the next view of life at:
A Beautiful Random Act of Kindness to a Stranger Was Photographed.
So, life is not as bad as it might be but for some who will extend a helping hand and umbrella while getting themselves soaked for the pleasure of knowing they helped another person and did not have to do it, weren’t paid, and didn’t ask for anything in return..
and then we have:
36 Things I Know After 36 Years of Marriage – by Winifred M. Reilly
So, there you have it. We move from horror to wonder. Where are you? Who are you? I am not sure where or who I am after these three tags.
Want to know about the 10 Goriest Slashers of the 80s? Yes? No? Hey, how about this, 10 Super Cheesy 80s Horror VHS Covers? Err, okay, how about Let’s Scare Jessica to Death 10 1971…..not to mention all the spin off horror type stuff to keep you awake. Well, you can find all that and more at:

Let’s Scare Jessica to Death (1971) Review
This next is a thoughful blogger; http://rejstephensonblogs.wordpress.com/about/
not that the last wasn’t, but a different kind of thoughtful. The message is there. You simply have to open it and understand it on your own level as it is not just as plain as someone might expect or wish for.
This is a serious site. It is about “mental health, addiction, recovery, and stigma.” The author says he has been both a provider as well as a patient which has allowed him to gain a “unique perspective” from his 20 years of involvement.
Curious? Looking for information? I think we all know of someone who has “issues” as some would say. I have alcoholism in my family. I know of people who are addicted to drugs. I have friends who are recovering alcoholics and I have battled my own demons as a Vietnam Vet.
There are over 8 thousand people following that blog. Must be something worthwhile there.
Did I just write that I had found a part-time Unicorn? Yep. At least that is what Sara C. Roethle has said about herself. She said that she is a writer (she lists her books by the way…nice covers Sara! good line up). She is in the young adult horror category. Damn, maybe that is where I should try to put something as she is doing very well. She has 6 books listed.
Her site? http://saracroethle.com/about/
and then there is: http://en.gravatar.com/saracroethle
So, hey, if you a young adult who is into horror then tag on to her and see if she has written something appealing to you. I am not a young adult, but I do like horror stories so I may slip in and buy something from her but I just won’t mention my age.
Okay, time for a commercial. If you watch tv or listen to the radio you have to listen to commercials. This is mine. I have another blog….well, I have several blogs because I am a confused person without any direction but…oh what the hell…..I am trying to sell books, okay, my books, ….autographed and mailed directly to you with a little thank you note tucked inside. Where can you order these incredible gifts of brilliance that you must get before someone else on the block where you live does…be the first!!! … yes, so where can you find them AND the reviews, I have gotten great reviews on Amazon and Good Reads and other places…so, where oh where can you get the books and share in the radiance of great writing? You can go to my other blog:
There you will find three books for sale. Two of them are poetry and the third is a murder mystery about an incredible family filled with lunatics. Anyway, well worth the money.
You will also find a blog there that has captivating articles and poetry like the following verses (my copyright):
The Old Undead of Poets
And thus spake true, the old undead of poets long forgot
As the grass they stood upon withered and the trees nearby did rot
For surely they had never ever thought
Nor in this life had ever sought
The substance of less passion
For clearly was not their fashion
And this indeed was what left them freed
As the world about turned slowly to withered weed.

Pretty cool, huh? You betchasweetbuttbuddy!
Hey! And while you are there, don’t forget I am finishing a narrative nonfiction about a serial killer in Florida. If you like crime books (or don’t like them) you will love this upcoming book. I will be taking orders in advance in a month or so. So, keep an eye out on this blog…remember, you heard it first hear!
Carminatimotheum…an interesting mix of names for a young “17 years old” who claims to be “truly delusional” youth who is “trapped” in his “own truth.” Hmm. very deep for a 17 year old, but perhaps not. He has a lot of poetic thoughts located at:
Recommendation? Do I need to say go and see what he has written? I think not.
On a side note, I thought how interesting when this writer, carminatimotheum, writes his poetry and messages his views on life that another writer comes forward with such clarity as does K. L. Register writes:
We live in a world
in which sometimes it seems as if
we just don’t understand…”
(See the Ninth Life: https://klregister.wordpress.com/ for the full version of her poem.)
So, what is it that you and I and carminatimotheum don’t understand? Well, for me it is a lot more than we have time to discuss here. I constantly…well, much of the time…question why I made the choices in life that I did and regret many of those as being poorly made and without any directional help from anyone or …. yes, … anything. I returned from Vietnam a bag of confused and damaged goods and drank to drown the pain. Oh well, enough, my thoughts lead me astray and this is as far as I am going with this.
I only brought this up as carminatimotheum (hey I am getting good at writing that name without looking back to see how it is spelled…probably got it wrong) posted some interesting things that I think K L Register addresses and, perhaps, should be viewed in the same context.
Oh good grief, I am getting philosophical here. I just recalled my year 16 and 17 but we won’t go there at all…. nope..Goodnight Mrs. Callabash wherever you are!
