  • 5 Reasons to participate in an anthology/Box set August 20, 2014
    I’ve said it before, this summer is the summer of the box set. Some authors hit some big best seller lists and loads of authors are jumping on the bandwagon hoping to replicate their success. I’m one of them. In fact, I was asked to participate in no less than 3 sets in one weekRead more...
  • Gender Reveal parties July 25, 2014
    I’m hearing about this new trend in the baby world: the gender reveal party. What happens is the doctor or sonogram tech writes the gender in a sealed envelope which is then delivered to a baker. The baker then bakes either a pink or blue cake with neutral frosting. Then a reveal party is hostedRead more...
  • Songs of Summer July 22, 2014
    It happens every summer. An ear worm hits the airwaves and it’s in your head all summer. Some I like, some I could live without. (Remember the summer of Gangam style). This summer, I’m humming along to Imagine Dragons, On Top of the World, Fancy by Iggy Azalea, and I could live without Happy byRead more...

REvolution for realz

God has a sense of humor…all week I’ve been blogging about power loss, here comes hurricane Sandy to mess with the whole east coast of the US. I’m blogging today while I still have power, but this may Be a slow blogging week.

Everything up til now has been hypothetical but as a survivor of Hurricane Andrew, here are some tips

1. Food water flashlights, duh you already have this

2. Play it sAfe. During the storm if you hear the popping noise of breaking glass, don’t go investigate. Wait. Your home.may suffer more damage, but you’ll be safe. Insurance covers everything, including your life, but you’d rather not have your loved ones go there, right?

3. The safest place in your home is windowless room on the 1st floor toward the middle of the houses. The bathroom is best. If you have a bathroom with a tub, that’s even better. The pipes are anchored deep in the ground, and the whole house can blow away around you, but the bathtub tends to stay put.

4. In a storm like Sandy, trees crashing  through your house are the biggest fear. Since there’s no predicting which trees will fall and in what direction, there’s not much you can do here. Maybe don’t sleep in the Attic bedrooms.

5. Storm aftermath. FACT: more people were killed after hurricane Andrew then during. Accidents involving chainsaws, heart attacks etc.. We’re the real danger. Know your limitations.

6 if you are more than 6 months pregnant consider checking yourself into the hospital For the night. The barometric changes can cause early  labor. There are a lot of 20 year old Andrews running around Miami.

Thats it, stay safe everyone.
