It’s been strange watching this snow come down for the last several days. It has been a long time since New York has seen this kind of accumulation. I can look out my office window and see snow level with the bottom of the frame, and rising as it feathers out from the wind. Crazy.
There is over two feet on the level, the plow truck the keeps us cleared out has pushed a pile almost as high as the roof, and last night it turned to rain, and now we have up to fifteen more inches coming today.
It has nearly swallowed my tumble down shed; which is a derelict building, but it looks awesome in images, even here with snow drifted four feet up the front.
Ice hanging, dripping and the snow is beginning to fall already.
We are doing new episodes of The Nation Chronicles. If you like them, leave a comment, tell a friend, or do both!
We have just begun to do a podcast based on the Star Dancer book. Space travel. Get the book/ebook at Amazon.
I will get the first Star Dancer Podcast episode up tomorrow. Feedback is appreciated.
NYC, Manhattan, Brooklyn, Bronx, Long Island, Staten Island, Queens, and other places near the coast got blasted. I am about 370 miles away from that, at the top of the state and I got blasted, even though less than they did.
What am I doing? I am adding ways to buy the Earth’s Survivors and Guitar Works books. In the coming days I will be adding links to purchase the other eBook series. I am using PayPal, security, so you can trust you will get what you pay for, and eventually I should have all of them loaded and available for you.
The Nation Chronicle books that match the Podcast series are available at amazon. You can get Paperback, eBook and you can get them in the US, UK, CA and AU. Here is my Amazon Author page and links to the books that are available on Amazon.
I am working on getting healthy, battling an insurance company that screws me over every month or so. I have never actually experienced a fair insurance company. I have seen commercials, and they seem so nice: Go ahead, drive that Porsche into a pool, You’re covered! Your house burned down? We’ll look into it, maybe not as quick as you would like, but we will, and maybe we’ll get back to you, maybe not. And when it comes to health care, wow. Hopefully you will not have to deal with it, or if you are, advocate for yourself. Be firm, make sense, research what you are saying, and if you can’t get anywhere else? Notify the Attorney General of your state. Believe me, once the insurance company gets an inquiry from the Attorney General’s office concerning you, they will get their heads out of their asses and do something.
Okay, I am not a complainer, we’ve all been through a rough year, and it ain’t over yet. And I know everyone has their own horror stories.
Other than books and podcasts I am narrowing down my focus on the world and what is and what isn’t important. It is what you do, keep going forward. What is forward? Good question, no one knows, even if someone tells you they know how this will all turn out? Full of it. I have never met anyone who can really predict the future. Look at your world, circumstances, and do what you have to do for you.
You might also have noticed that I killed all social media, well, nearly all. I have hated Facebook for years, and the way they control what you can say and do, spam your mail in-box daily, and subject their views on you. Really? Yes, by censoring everything you see. Selling your information. I am not a conspiracy theorist, just speaking what the truth is, not what it appears to be, but what it is.
So I killed all ten of my business pages and both my personal and business profile. I like Instagram, but when I shut down my FB pages Facebook severed my Instagram. It took several days to get back, and working, but it is. Didn’t know Facebook owned Instagram? They do. Just like the principal shareholders of Twitter are Facebook, Google and other billionaires that want to keep a lid on things. Control.
So, not a conspiracy theorist, just a once popular author who pulled the plugs, because if I say this is how I feel I should back it up with actions.
I tried MeWe. And I have no complaints, they did not bombard me with spam, or opinions, etc, however they have a ton of radicals there. Some of the people who use the service are definitely on the radical side, and I am not, and don’t want to be confused as being part of them. So I closed my MeWe pages: Again, if I say it, I should back it with actions.
So, on the right bar on this site you can see my remaining social links. That is it.
Twitter: https://twitter.com/SweetDell , because eventually they did the right thing, and that gives me hope.
Tumbler: https://shadychildcycle.tumblr.com/ , because I am an artist in words and images, expressions in music as well. And that is why I am there.
Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/dellgeo/ , because after I closed FB and got back on a direct link to Instagram, I can see what my friends and fellow authors are up to. Yes, I still get followed by 10 to 20 trolls a week, usually women (Maybe) trying to get money out of me, or get me to marry them (But only after I send several thousand dollars to a bank in their country). Instagram, jeeezz. But, since there is no FB I don’t get bombarded by all of that particular spam every day. I just ignore those Trolls/Scammers whatever they are.
MySpace: https://myspace.com/dellsweet , I don’t know, I’ve been there forever, I do write music, lyrics, record my songs for my BMI catalog, and they don’t seem to take weird political stances or censor work/art/writing.
Pinterest: https://www.pinterest.com/dell2133/_saved/ I have it, I have been debating killing it. They do censor users, and it is just images, but I also do get feedback and suggestions, and a lot of views for my projects: 3D Models, Computer builds, Software builds, Guitar builds and my collected images of Joan Jett to name just one Rock Godess that I have saved there. Although I learned my lesson doing ads with them (They are partially owned by Facebook and just as censor happy) I do like the fact that I can collect and store images. Is that worth it? So far. Besides, now you can go look and see what I like to look at, and then judge me, lol.
That is it, except my Amazon Author Page Suggestions? Feedback? Otherwise I stumble along blind.
Today’s free eBook is Fig Street. Today and Tomorrow only If you need it for your country, just switch to your country and load the book again and you’ll get it free. Enjoy, and please leave feedback…
Hope it isn’t snowing where you are, stay safe, Dell.
