Articles ReleasedI realized the temple didn't have an article, yet that location is pivotal in Rise. So I remedied the lack of article. On Wednesdays I'll release the special book launch posts. April 7th's was the first about what influenced me to write Rise.

Covid Shot is Tougher on the Younger OnesOur family is finding that the Pfizer Covid shot is harder on the younger people. My poor son (age 20) was the sickest he'd been in over 15 years. We were just short of hauling him to the hospital, his tummy troubles were that violent. I'm just saying this to warn other parents out there. The shot effects will probably be easier for you than your kids. Keep some ginger ale or ginger beer on hand!
K-DramaWatching the Mad Dog Korean drama is my reward for completing my tasks. I just finished with episode 5. The characters are great. But the young con artist, Kim Min Joon, and his arrogance are most entertaining!
Upcoming PlansMonday is the start of my blog book tour!
