Book Update:

This term “staying the course” takes on a new meaning as I navigate the self-publishing road. The latest goal has been completed! The copyright application has been filed. The reward for completing this can’t be underscored enough for me.

For those of you who haven’t heard, my new book is scheduled to be released next month. It’s about Randy Sparks, a fun-loving Village of Canalville employee who is always in trouble for telling it like it is and the pushback he faces from the mayor who is hiding a secret.

And when these ingredients are combined with the village’s pending bankruptcy, it creates a volatile chemistry and sparks fly!

Err… No pun intended Randy!

This Weeks Podcast:

The appearance of the Virgin Mary to Juan Diego occurred at the Our Lady of Guadalupe apparition site in Mexico City in the year 1531.

I visited this spiritual site and the planning that went into the trip was somewhat elaborate. I had to tweak travel plans for an upcoming trip to the west coast from my east coast location.

My idea was to detour to this apparition site while flying out west, and doing so without an overnight layover. So through tons of planning, the logistics fell into place to make the trip happen. It would be a short visit between flights and in retrospect it certainly was a miracle of planning.

I will let you decide what guided my visit.
