Now we are down to only one cow who hasn't had her calf yet. That will make it 18 this year.
This week's featured calf is number 12:
A classic black-white-faced bull calf. Other than some white on her belly, he's all black other than that panda-face. She's been in the mud, following her momma, so the flies are a bit busy with them as the photo was taken. Your namerator is getting some tough choices this year - but you'll have to compare with the other black white-faced calves to come up with something distinctive.
And here's your chance to give him a name - just reply to this email with your inspiration(s)...
Cattle Eye infections: That simple diet change helped everyone get over the eye problems - plus the drier weather. Just set a few more containers out so that the calves could get ready access. They drank down the apple cider vinegar, so I got them some more - and found out how simple it is to make this stuff. Trick is that you have to have a supply of apples and a couple of months to ferment it. Great project for winter, after the fall harvest.
Cozy Cottage (Tiny Home) Progress
Now, since I'm taking my romance research subject on a short vacation, the little progress in getting the sheathing nearly complete is all to report. The trickiest parts will have to wait until we get back (two newsletters from now.)
Fiction Re-release - Ghost Hunters Primer
I built this so that you can have easy access to the key stories that introduced main characters. Enjoy!
The reason for this primer is simple - over the years, many recurring characters have been introduced. A reader finding a later book might get confused when someone just shows up and starts helping out with the story. Veteran readers just nod and smile and appreciate the new depth that character brings. So we've collected all the key character's first stories into one thick volume.
And it makes pretty good reading all by itself.
At least 25 characters are introduced in these 17 stories. (Of course, many have their own series now, but that's another story in itself...)
- Ghost Hunters
- Why Vampires Suck at Haunting
- The Lazurai
- The Case of the Cruising Phantom
- Ham & Chaz
- The Lazurai Emergence
- Ghost of the Machine
- Time Bent
- The Girl Who Became Tomorrow
- When Death Died
- The Healers Chronicles: Birthdays

New! How to Completely Change Your Life (2nd Edition) Audiobook!
Audiobook contains: 32 streaming or downloadable audio chapters from the new second edition. Hours of listening pleasure. These basics I use daily to change the world around me into a better one for everyone I know.
Here's the secret in 3 steps:
1. Suspend disbelief as you read the following:
2. "We Become What We Think About." - Earl Nightingale
3. Then, decide that it's true.
Now, the rest of your life, you'll be testing this for yourself. You may be asking questions like these:
- Can you actually change what you think about?
- Do positive thoughts create a positive personal environment?
- Does being critical of anything or anyone around you actually improve conditions?
- Is your health affected by negative thinking?
You'll find continuing instances of how this is true and how it might not be. And forever, you'll be testing the entire environment around you and every thought which enters your perception. You'll wonder if you can actually change your thoughts, and what are the limits to this concept.
You'll be “haunted” by this singular thought, although the results won't make you lose sleep – instead, you'll awake with fresh inspirations from time to time about how to live your life even better than you are now.
Because you've just started on a journey which has no definite end.
In this first in a series, the basics of Nightingale's success philosophy are revealed, based on notes transcribed from select recordings.
This new second edition has been reorganized by subject areas, with some essays restored.
The audiobook has also been updated to reflect these changes.

Taking a vacation - but my books don't...
Mainly for my romance research partner. Last two years were rough on many of us, and despite the high gas prices, she wants to see the Smoky Mountains (from her bucket list) - so I managed to persuade my sister to mind the cows for a week. Then I'll come back to set the bulls in with their respective herds for next years calves.
Don't worry, these newsletters will keep coming, along with cute calf namerator challenges.
And meanwhile... The updating and re-publishing continues.
I'm supposed to get started running ads for the new and updated Ghost Hunter Canon Vol 1 - which will be offered at a ridiculous loss-leader price. Figuring that once new readers are hooked, they'll get the rest of the series - and support my writing. Otherwise, this is a great way to have that collectible reference on your bookshelf - for ready access.
And - I'm to start producing videos for new series of articles, which will become courses.
Also - I do have a couple of fiction stories nagging at me.
But meanwhile, that cozy cottage tiny home has to get completed this summer, plus the mini-office.
So - despite my over-whumped work schedule - stay tuned...
Oh - wait, there's more: The recent results just confirm all I've been telling (some of) you for years - you can actually have and be anything and everything you want out of life. Really. Whether it's finding a dear companion or a million-dollar salary. And it's all in that "Strangest Secret Collection" (my characters named it the "decoder ring"). You only have to take the leap of faith and put it into use...
(Again, to get your updated copy, just reply to this and ask - I'll send you the most recent edition if you don't have yours or misplaced it.) As well, I do need to get some courses up, so I'll start working these in once I get all the major non-fiction books republished.
