Another person that comes to mind is Doreen Martel. A person who has had a promising career, but faced with a health problem turned to writing despite proper visual health. I have always found her to be a person who says NO to what life's thrown at her and has made something of herself as a writer. So many writers from among our group have stories to tell, stories that inspire us and bring out the writer in each of us. Check out Doreen's blog on Freelancer resources.

What about animals and pets? How do we take care of them the green way? No, I don't mean that we have to turn them into vegetarians. That would be another form of green revolt if we did... but how about using products for them that are eco-friendly and recycled. Conny Manero lends her suggestions on the best eco-friendly gifts for pet owners.
While we talk about going green and saving the planet, there are so many factors that are beyond our reach; to take care of. Yes, you can blame it on politics and the 'green-note' bureaucrats. Funny I should say green-notes, when they do not do their part to 'go-green', or they are literally going green with filling their coffers and allowing the notes to add on. Take for instance the nuclear power blasts at Japan when the earthquake happened and the tsunami followed on March 11, 2011. There was so much radiation from nuclear power blasts in Japan, that so many lives were in danger, and I mean, for those who escaped the earthquake and tsunami. Ashes to ashes, dust to dust... If nature won't get you, politics must!

Home is where the heart is
There are so many things that come to mind when I think of the word 'home'. First of all, it's that safe place... that sanctuary where you are at your comfiest. Yes, East, West, Home's Best. But when it comes to maintaining your home, there are so many things to take care of, so many issues to resolve, so many damages that need repairing. If you have a garden, your garden needs maintaining, or your lawn mowed and fence maintained. Talk about the walls and you sigh, yes, the walls need painting too. Taking care of your heart is hard work. It isn't easy to run a home while ensuring that all your bases are covered.

I generally like the idea of recycling material. For example, after my sewing projects, there are left over bits of cloth. I use these balance bits of cloth pieces to create a rug. You can read all about this at 'How to make a burlap rug'.
This week I'd like to showcase a writer who needs no introduction. She has a passion for crafts and is a bubbly, lively and caring person to interact with. This is none other than Trenna Sue Hiler.
I have specifically chosen some of her guides that you can make use of this season; specifically Thanksgiving. They are all related to 'pumpkins'. I've also thrown in a Christmas tree guide, since I found this original.
This first eBook is by my friend Scott A. Scherer. He has written a book of poems titled 'Some day you are going to need one' (Poems that truly make you feel). I have to admit his poems are moving and comforting. Should you be struggling with hurt in your life, read his book of poems.
Here is another book of poems... and this one is by Gerard Quain, who has written and published 'Snatches of the Mind' (Poems that matches moods). Expressions of one's thoughts through writing have found its way to connect with others; and this is what his poems are about.
Last but not the least... it is with pride I showcase one of the newest releases to hit the shelves this season; Morgidoo's Christmas Carol written by our very own Raymond Alexander Kukkee. A story for the young and young at heart, Morgidoo's Christmas Carol is a story that will linger on in your heart long after you have finished reading it. The illustrations are colorful, imaginative and cheerful, and will most certainly add to your reading pleasure. Make sure to pick up your copy today!
P.S. I have taken these images from the sites where these eBooks are up for sale, so kindly click on the titles and not the images to check out the eBooks further.
