Hello everyone, sounds like I finally got the recognition I deserved . You all can now call me the Grand Poo-bah (check out the Words Of The Day). Actually I laughed when I saw that. For years and years I worked for the Calgary Flames as a rink rat, but I was isolated at the other end of the rink from the other 3 guys I worked with. They monthly had one of the three be the Grand Poo-bah. But looks like I get the name in the end .
Speaking of being called names . I thought I would check in
Now anyone that follows me, yeah, all ten of you , heard that my computer decided that the warranty is up, and it gave me 5 years of loyal service that it was ready to hit the recycling bin Went out and got a new one, paid the warranty (is it worth it? ), and the $150 to transfer my data from the old hard drive to the new one. I asked, is that possible if the old one is dead? Oh yeah, no problem. Fast forward 24 hours, yeah, your hard drive is not in good condition and we can't transfer the dat
Wow! Spring has sprung here and I'm sure our Australian cousins are settling in for a long, hard, cold winter Other than maybe up in the mountains, does it even get below 0 C? What about New Zealand, @Stellar. Do you get a cold snowy winter, even on the southern tip of the south island with their spectacular mountains?
I guess it was spring break here at GA, which means this will be the quickest wrap up I've done in a long time. So shall we see what went on here?
Monday, Cia hopped in
Taxes, taxes, taxes, oh my
I do believe my friends to the south have to have their taxes in by April 15th this year, and we up here in the Great White North have to have them in by April 30March 31. Thanks @Mikiesboyfor correcting this. No relief with Covid. I wonder what it would be like to have no taxes whatsoever like some countries in the world. No federal, no provincial/state, no sales tax, etc. I do have to admit that when I do mine and my dad's taxes every year it isn't that big of
Well happy first day of Spring. Not too often I will share a joke, but @AC Benus' status update had me laughing . It is kind of related to Easter, well loosely to Easter It has a rabbit in it And a priest and minister , Curious yet?
Go over and enjoy
So what happened this week at the GA News Blog you ask! Well I will tell you! Free of charge, no subscription fee, no monthly payments. Free, free, free
First off, a PSA on behalf of the World Time Federation (WTF) If you live in any of the regions that observes Daylight Savings, it kicked in last night. So if you are late to everything today, don't say I didn't warn ya
Well, I'm shocked, shocked I say. I looked out my window today and there was a tiny little white bunny rabbit frolicking around the courtyard. I honestly believe it was the Easter Bunny's scout checking out places for when the big guy (or gal) comes in a few weeks to leave
We seem to be well on our way to April. Has spring sprung in your neck of the woods? Are the bees buzzing, the birds chirping, and the flowers growing up? Well I want everyone to take note that we are only about 5 weeks from April 1st. So to get everyone having some fun this year, as last year I think most of us were shell shocked, let's plan a really good April Fools Joke for this year. If you have a good idea share it with everyone so if anyone is drawing blank, they can maybe borrow the idea
So the last week of February already! Monday we are into March and I think some people are looking forward to an early spring! Me, an early spring is the last week of April . Well lets hope that maybe, just maybe, we can have a good spring and jump into a summer of hope I'm holding out for it.
This week was yet another busy one. Do you realize we now have 6 days a week of GA blogs, on top of the daily Word of the Day . There is so much to take in I'm glad we have a team of staff and very d
How was your Valentines Day? I'll be honest, I didn't even know it really happened The advertising and hoopla seemed to be almost non existent this year, well to me it was. I did hear one couple I know went out for dinner yet still had over a two hour wait! Oh well, for those dead set Valentiners if you missed it I'm sure it will be back next year bigger and better.
I know that all over the world there is different and crippling weather all the time. I would be remiss if I do not mention
Well it's forty below
And I don't give a *bleep*
Got a heater in my truck
And I'm off to the rodeo
Now if you don't know this song, you can Youtube it or Google it, but don't have the sound up if little ears might be around
It seems I'm stuck in a perpetual groundhog day were everyday since Monday we have been in a extreme winter warning (sustained temperatures of -40) Luckily by Monday we will creep closer to 0 or 32 depending on your temperature scale you are using. The thing i
What a day today has been. I couldn't avoid a lot of stuff anymore so I had to go out in the freezing weather and get a bunch of stuffs done. Left the house at 8:00 and didn't get home to 3:30 😮 This is the weekend, aren't we supposed to relax and sleep in and take it easy?
So I'm curious, as after working 26 years in stores in retail, I know I didn't like when I heard people who talked about their Monday to Friday jobs. Where some of us in retail worked any day of the week.
So put up your hand if you have had a cold this year
To tell the truth, I don't get them that often, but this year wearing a mask and avoiding other people as much as I have, I never thought anything unusual about it. Then Thursday came . I woke up on Thursday AM and had a headache and stuffy nose. The headache seemed to be right in my sinuses. Not having any other symptoms other than the occasional cough, I didn't feel I was on the road to COVID. Thank god!! Well two days later, after lo
First and foremost, let me apologize ahead of time. This blog has been completely done on my iPhone 😁. It appears my computer won’t start anymore 😢. But shall we see how this goes? If any staff see any blaring errors, feel free to jump in and edit 😏. Or everyone can point them out and laugh at me
On Monday Cia was here to bring us the January Classic Author:
If that wasn’t enough to entice you, how about checking out the January Classic Author Excerpt:
Then on Thursday, Renee
What does everything think of the new upgrade to GA? Myr and I were joking that the new font size was easier for us as we grow older Pretty soon, you might see this font which will be beneficial for both of us
Good Day Everyone!
Now don't worry, I'm sure we will have virtual screens by the day that we need this, no monitors or physical screens any more. Hey, that might be a story idea thinking how technology could improve older peoples lives. Now that I think of my dad trying to us
Please be forewarned!!! I'm on a staycation and I already did a deep clean on my condo today. So now I'm bored and have nothing to do as there is no traveling and such in my area of the world. So expect to see me creating havoc all over GA I may be lurking around every corner, ready to pounce on the unsuspected people of GA. I will leave my calling card wherever I have been . Be scared, be very scared
Now if you believe me, I also have ocean front property in Arizona. Bought it unseen
I said my New Year wishes on Friday, so in case you missed them, Happy Hopeful New Year
I thought I would start the blog off a bit different as it was the last week of the year. How did we do on our Story Goals for the year? Well, I'm happy to say that I'm proud of everyone that contributed to the site over the past year from Authors, Poets, Readers, Editors, and everyone else that has a membership at GA I was also thinking, just imagine our numbers if we had the 1000's of guest that pop
Have you digested your Christmas Feast yet? Did anyone actually have some figgy pudding? Have you made tallies to see if the holidays was in the profit column or the loss one? Have you had enough of this year's Christmas holidays? Did you even celebrate the holidays?
Well, Santa seemed to skip over my house once again this year I know I was really really really good this past year (not like I got out to anywhere ). I know he skipped my house because I didn't get my usual lump of coal . I

Just the facts man, just the facts!
We are now 12 days from Christmas. Fact. If any Christmas shopping for pressies (for our Australian and English brethren ) isn't done yet, you're probably SOL. Fact. If you're mailing anything, probably want to do it sooner that later. Fact. If you haven't sent me my Christmas present yet, you will be on the naughty list. Fact.
Well as the world is getting busy, but not as busy as past years , the one thing is consistent year over year here at GA,
Yes, it is December already! Only 19 more sleeps until 🎅 comes to see all the good boys and gurls at GA If he is still alive
I'm going to be short and sweet, I have a killer headache and body aches. Note to anyone out there that if you have a prosthetic leg and you and not wearing said leg, and stand up and turn around to put your residual limb (stump) on your wheelchair, ensure wheelchair hasn't moved 4 feet away I saw my fall in slow motion, not as graceful as Keanu in the Matrix tho
Wow, what a busy week here at the GA News Blog. I should have started this earlier so I could have it maybe done by midnight local time. It is already 11:30 😮
So without large flashing lights and sirens, maybe an announcer with a mike dropped down for the rafters like at a boxing match (I believe he was busy with the Mike Tyson match ), we will be a bit more subtle today in the Weekly Update. So here it goes, we have two days left to get your edited copy for the Fall Anthology into the Ant
Greetings everyone! I'm happy to announce that we will be returning next week with a weekly writing-related tip in our Writing Tip blog. We will feature the blog on Saturday mornings. For those authors that were following in the late 2018-early 2019 timeframe, we had a separate blog called "Gay Authors Articles." We will be updating these blog posts with additional links and resources and reposting them as we go. The Writing Tips in the Stories Archive will also eventually be consolidated to the
Well guess what buckaroos? You have exactly 8 days to finish up your Fall Anthology and submit to our eager and waiting Anthology Proof Team. Please submit now and our proof team members are standing buy. Call 1-800-... oh wait, this isn't a telethon or infomercial. But we would really like to see your name on the list of anthologies for the Shadows or Bridges Fall Anthology.
Before I forget, why don't we all collectively say a Happy Thanksgiving to all
