ODD's and END's


June 4. On this day in 1974, Mrs Candelaria Villanueva, 52, had been in the sea with a lifejacket for more than 12 hours after the ship she was on, the Aloha, caught fire and sank 600 miles south of Manila, Philippines. A giant sea turtle appeared beneath her and supported her until her rescue by the navy vessel Kalantia. A smaller turtle climber on her back and bit her every time she felt drowsy and was in danger of submerging her head in the water. After the rescue, the bigger turtle circled the area twice before taking off.

Above is a crazy story my hubby found in one of the newspapers on line that he reads. Where he finds these things I do not know.LOL. But since turtles are a big thing in my house I thought I would share this story with you all.

Well, I've been on this BP medicine now for 4 days. I got a few side effects such as dizziness, loss of appetite, restlessness. Hubby has been on BP med's for year's and he says it will all pass after about a week or so. Speaking of the hubby, he went fishing this morning. Finally getting to use the new Rod & Reel he bought a couple weeks ago. Will he catch a fish, lol I doubt it, cause I know fish hide on bottom of water when there have been storms. My Uncle use to tell me that. He never went fishing before or after a storm, cause he said there's no fish. He'd wait for a few days after a storm and boooooooooom here comes the fish one after the other.

I'd like to thank you all for commenting on the few paragraph's of the book I'm attempting to write. One's who have read what I wrote so far, say it's exciting, so that made me feel good. Now if only I can get up the ambition to write some more. I am still searching for a publishing company who would be willing to read it and hopefully publish it, but ones I've found so far, want me to pay for the whole expense, buy anywhere from 500 to 1000 copies and sell them on my own. Are they nuts or what. Are'nt publisher's suppose to get your book published and pay you? I will keep looking for one, whom does'nt make me pay, lol. Alot of them you find on line, don't tell you upfront that it's gonna cost you $$$$ to have your book published. They get you later with literature or call you a hundred times a week. I've actually had to block their emails and phone calls because I felt I was being harrassed into purchasing my own writings. And they call themselves a Publishing Co.? I think it's more like a printing company. You pay them to print out the books, and you pay the postage to have these books shipped to you. One company wanted 2500.00 for 500 copies of a paperback novel, and 229.95 for postage to ship them to me, yea right........forget it. I want to get a check not send one, lol. But as I've learned there's always a catch to something. So, if I don't like what I see then I look elsewhere.

Well, that's about it for now. I know I'll find something else to write about today, lol. My mind is always wondering on idea's. Hope your all having a great day,

  3. I love the turtle story!!  I would like to think it's true!  Keep taking the meds.  The side effects should subside soon.  I hope you find a publisher.  I can't believe they want YOU to pay THEM?? What's that about??  Have a good day.
