Quote of the day for Veterans Day

Let’s take a moment to Remember, Appreciate, and Thank All of our Men and Women who have Served in the Armed Forces so We can Have and Hold Dear the Freedoms we Enjoy. 

The nicest veterans…the kindest and funniest ones, the ones who hated war the most, were the ones who’d really fought. 

~Kurt Vonnegut

It’s Veterans Day and Kurt Vonnegut’s birthday. The bestselling author of Slaughterhouse-Five (born November 11, 1922) drew on his experiences during World War II to craft his satirical antiwar novel. He had been captured by the Germans and survived the firebombing of Dresden—an event that appears in the book. Among his other popular works are Cat’s Cradle, Breakfast of Champions, and God Bless You, Mr. Rosewater.

The Art of Upcycling by C J Robb


Upcycling can be fun, and it is a wonderful way to let your creative side loose. With upcycling, you take an item that is old and worn or not being used. You can then make it into something that you do use or that you share with someone else.
As you explore the art of upcycling, you will be very excited about all it offers. Since there are no limits to the materials you can use or what you can create, it is interesting to see what you can come up with. The only limits will be those that you set for yourself!

This is the ebook edition and the paperback is out March 10th!

Thank you to all my friends, family, and to you reading this post for all your enthusiasm and support!

Good Monday Morning, Everyone! Here’s Your Quote of the Day…


The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you’ll go.

Dr. Seuss

Theodor Geisel (born March 2, 1904), a.k.a. Dr. Seuss, acquired his pseudonym as a student at Dartmouth. He was caught drinking with friends and, as punishment, was forced to drop out of his extracurricular activities. That didn’t stop him from continuing to write for the campus humor magazine using his mother’s maiden name, Seuss.

I think there’s just one kind of folks. Folks. 

Harper Lee

December 25, 1956: Harper Lee was working as an airline ticket agent, spending Christmas away from home with her friend Michael Brown, a Broadway songwriter. On Christmas morning, 58 years ago, Brown and his wife gave her the gift of a year to write—by March, she had written most of To Kill a Mockingbird.
