Coming Signs of the (Zombie) Apocalypse

I think that everyone can agree that these are strange times that we live in. The evening (or 24 hour) news is full of bad news. Governments are using chemical weapons on their own countrymen, gunmen are opening fire in schools and malls, terrorists bomb buildings and sporting events and our children cannot ride down the street on their bicycles anymore. Even the local news in my small town is full of murders and home invasion robberies. There is no such thing as safety anymore. The media tells us that our world is a ticking time bomb until The. Worst. Happens.

So what do we do to prepare for the worst case scenario? What should my husband do to keep his family safe from harm should we be under siege from unknown sources, no gas, no food, our lives in danger? Should we stockpile food, water, medical supplies, warm blankets? What does my husband, in all his wisdom do?

That, my friends, is his answer. Soy sauce packets from the Chinese take away. He says it will ward off zombies. This is his stash. I should also mention that there are three bottles of soy sauce in the refrigerator. So, that's one apocalyptic scenario covered. I feel so much safer now, don't you?

Silence, Part 1

So, I haven't been posting in a few years due to the fact that the tech company I own with my husband has been growing by leaps and bounds and that I have been spending my extra time working on my first novel. Look for that to be published some time next year. :)

But in the meantime, my friend Josh Petrillo has published on his blog a little spoof piece I wrote for him a few years ago. Even if you don't know Josh, you may find it funny. Give it a go.

Wonderbox - The Lost Years

If you are a deep thinker, you may enjoy his blog. And he's a great guy, addiction to Swedish Fish and Mike and Ike's notwithstanding.

As for me, I will be posting more frequently. Twice a week for now. And I may be giving you some sneak peeks at what I have been laboring with for so long. So for the two people who actually read my blog, today's your lucky day. Or not.

See you soon!
