Smorgasbord Afternoon video – The Collie Walk – Get your groove on.


I dare you not to love this!

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

This video is on speed dial for me – when things get a tad stressful I pop into Youtube and spend a few minutes watching my favourite dog – the collie x five of them playing a game – the one at the back looks like he is determined to get his man… I hope you enjoy as much as I do.

Bastille Day Release


At last! Beguiling Delila (Romancing the Guardians, Book 6) will be released on July 14, Bastille Day – France’s equivalent to the US Independence Day. Why? Because most of the book is set in France. Opening in Paris, the story takes Delilah Moreau, the French Guardian, and Leon Tseda, her hero, on a life-and-death race across the country to Nice on the breathtaking Côte d’Azur, before they take flight to America.

Cover & Cote d'Azur

Leon is one of my favorite characters from the series. He’s no spring chicken, and neither is Delilah, but they’re not too old for a second chance at love. Their journey is fraught with danger, excitement and steamy, mature romance.

Now, in case you missed any of the earlier books in this epic series, here is a quick overview. First, there are seven Guardians, each sworn to protect a precious scroll containing a secret prophecy handed down from ancient seers. Not to be revealed until mankind is ready to listen, the prophesies are in danger of being seized by vicious “Hellhounds” who want to use them to gain power and wealth.

Rescuing Lara, winner in the 2015 Paranormal Romance Guild Reviewers Choice Awards, stars Lara Spenser, a psychic heroine who’s running for her life, and Connor O’Shea, a hunky ex-Special Forces hero Lara hires as her bodyguard. Irish folklore, an ancient prophesy, murderous villains, and steamy romance make this a wild ride.

Sweethearts of the West 

Letter from a farm kid


Hilarious!

bluebird of bitterness

Dear Ma and Pa,

I am well. I hope you are too.

Tell Walt and Elmer that the U.S. Army beats working for old man Doggett by a mile. They oughta join up quick before all of the places are taken.

I was restless at first because you got to stay in bed till nearly 6 a.m., but I am getting so I like to sleep late. All you got to do before breakfast is straighten up your bunk and shine some things. No hogs to slop, feed to pitch, mash to mix, wood to split, fire to lay … practically nothing.

We go on “route marches,” which the sergeant says are long walks to harden us. If he thinks so, it’s not my place to tell him different. A route march is about as far as to our mailbox at home. Then the city boys get sore feet and we all ride back in trucks.

I keep getting medals…

Smorgasbord Laughter Academy – A Chicken, A Parrot and an Ostrich walk into a bar!


Love all three funnies, especially the ostrich!

Smorgasbord - Variety is the spice of life

A couple go for a meal at a Chinese restaurant and order the “Chicken Surprise”. The waiter brings the meal, served in a lidded cast iron pot.

Just as the wife is about to serve herself, the lid of the pot rises slightly and she briefly sees two beady little eyes looking around before the lid slams back down.

Good grief, did you see that?” she asks her husband.

He hasn’t, so she asks him to look in the pot. He reaches for it and again the lid rises, and he sees two little eyes looking around before it slams down.

Rather perturbed, he calls the waiter over, explains what is happening,and demands an explanation.

“Please sir,” says the waiter, “what you order?” The husband replies, “Chicken Surprise.”

“Ah… so sorry,” says the waiter, “I bring you Peeking Duck.”

One day a man went to an auction. While there, he…

Authors for Grenfell Tower


jessicanorrie

I’ve never liked tower blocks. I had a friend who lived on the 13th floor of what used to be called a “hard to let” block in east London. She loved the view from her balcony, and kept flowerpots tethered in five unblowoffable ways to the railings, but even stepping on to it made me feel weak at the knees. Perhaps my knees were already weak when I arrived, because I always used to walk up the stairs. The lift was creaky and claustrophobic. Supposing it got stuck? Supposing someone scary got in it with you?

Fire 3 Cuttings from the “I”, “The Guardian” and the “Evening Standard”‘ June 17th & 19th 2017

Even posh tower blocks – skyscrapers, rather, penthouses, high rise living and the other more affluent synonyms – worry me. The only time I visited New York, I was less scared sleeping on the 34th floor than I’d anticipated…
