Good morning everyone!
I hope you had a nice Valentine’s Day on Tuesday. We went to a dance on Saturday and on Tuesday night, ate all you can eat seafood at the race track and casino with some friends. Yum!!! 🙂
In this issue I am going to introduce you to my motorcycle group and share some cool writing articles with you. I also have some new things that I am working on that I want to tell you about.
So, have a great week and thanks for stopping by to say hello! 🙂
~THE WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT~
Steve and I own a Harley named Pearl. Yes, he named his bike but he is a guy and you know how they like to name things! 🙂 We belong to a group called The Eagle Riders and we enjoy doing a lot for charity. We are involved in the yearly ride to beneft St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital as well as The Children’s Miracle Network and raise funds for local charites.
Last Saturday we held a Valentine’s Day Dance and raised over $1,500 for the local food bank. We are all about family, community and country and want to do our part to make the world a better place.
So, that being said, on May 26, we are holding a PATRIOT RIDE & BBQ BASH to benefit THE WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT.
It will be held outdoors at the Fraternal Order of Eagles Post #1136 in Brunswick, Maryland.
Ride registration is from 9:00-10:45
10:45-11:00…safety regulations and ride blessing
Ride into the beautiful and historic Antietam Battlefield and return to the Eagles around 1:00-1:30
Cost: Riders $20, passenger $10, general admission is $10
Fee includes Ride, BBQ and Entertainment.
We have bands and vendors lined up for your enjoyment. Swag bags will also be given to the first 100 riders registered!
ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO BENEFIT THE WOUNDED WARRIOR PROJECT!
The WOUNDED WARRIORS is an organization that helps to:
- To raise awareness and enlist the public’s aid for the needs of injured service members.
- To help injured service members aid and assist each other.
- To provide unique, direct programs and services to meet the needs of injured service members
So, mark your calenders and plan to attend this worthy event and help make our first annual event for WOUNDED WARRIORS a success!!!

~ROCK STAR WEDNESDAY~
If you know me, you know that I love rock stars! My favorite band of all time is AEROSMITH!!!
I also love Motley Crue, Godsmack, KISS, Buck Cherry and Ted Nugent.
I enjoy all types of music but am a rocker chick at heart.
Starting in March, I am going to be hosting ROCK STAR WEDNESDAY! Each week I will feature a band or solo artist, any genre, and help to promote them. I already have a few lined up so this should be a lot of fun!!!
Looking for more so contact me and join the party!!! 🙂
~AUTHOR OF THE WEEK~
This Sunday is my weekly AUTHOR OF THE WEEK and I will be hosting author Joyce Strand who writes the Jillian Hillcrest Mystery Series. So come back and meet this talented author!
I may be making some changes to my segment by moving the AUTHOR OF THE WEEK to Saturday since I want to participate in the SIX SENTENCE SUNDAY and I want to be able to focus all of my attention and dedicate the blog entirely to my authors on their big day!
Well, as you know, every Friday, I write about a topic of interest and hope you walk away with something of value. This week’s topic is WITCHES!
LET’S TALK ABOUT WITCHES! We will delve into the history of the witch, talk about the Salem Witch Trials, explore the mystery of Wicca and find out a lot of other cool stuff.
I love witches and anything to do with them so this will be a lot of fun!
I found this cool article from Writer’s Digest called “HOW TO WRITE CONVINCING DIALOGUE “http://www.writersdigest.com/uncategorized/writing-dialogue-the-5-best-ways-to-make-your-characters-conversations-seem-real?et_mid=538945&rid=3095933
I listen to people carefully as they talk, to me or out in public and I like to think that my character’s dialogue is the strongest thing that I write but I am excited to put some of these tips into place!
~WHAT I AM READING~
I have several books that I am getting ready to bite into, some hardcovers and some on my Kindle PC but I think I am going to start with an older tale, THE ENGLISH PATIENT.
Amazon describes it as:
