My annual creepiest #Easter photo #SundayBlogShare #humor

Barb Taub

Time to be afraid again, Easter Peeps.

At the bottom of this annual Easter reblog is possibly the single creepiest photo on the web. (And that includes the Alien Peeps below andthis one of The Donald that you just HAVE to go and spin 360-degrees.) Happy Easter!

Even Daniel Spiess' alien peeps aren't as creepy as that picture down at the bottom of this post. Image credit: https://www.flickr.com/photos/deegephotos/4492282278/Even Daniel Spiess’alien peepsaren’t as disturbing as that picture down at the bottom of this post.


I committed an Easter crime once. I was persuaded to dress up in a bunny costume for my daughter’s preschool class. The teacher opened the door and in I teetered, six-plus feet (counting the ears) of Easter excitement. For about a nanosecond, there was total silence while I held up my basket of plastic eggs. Then eighteen mouths were screaming for eighteen mothers, thirty-six eyes were filling with tears, and seventy-two tiny arms and legs were churning toward the door. We’re not even going to discuss…

Something to Think About – The R’s of Life – Survival in a Modern World – Retail Therapy – The True Cost by Sally Cronin

How much do you waste every year? Food and clothes for thought.

The R’s of Life – Retail Therapy – The Real Cost

In the UK consumers will spend approximately £60 Billion this year on clothing and £960 Billion on groceries.

As you will see from some of the statistics below on both those commodities, there is a massive amount of waste generated in just those two sectors.

I will freely admit that shopping makes me feel better or it used to. As I have got older my need to find fulfillment in a shopping expedition to buy shoes, clothes and handbags has diminished somewhat. One of the reasons being our recent downsizing exercise which resulted in my entire hoarded wardrobe, spanning 30 years or so, being redistributed to thrift and charity shops.

It was not until we packed up our house that I realised the enormity of the money I had spent over the years on stuff. (I preclude my husband…

Sally’s Cafe and Bookstore – New book on the shelves – Amie: Savage Safari (Amie in Africa Book 5) by Lucinda E. Clarke

Thank you so much Sally, I so appreciate this. Hugs (((( ))))

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

Delighted to showcase the latest release from Lucinda E. Clarke which is also receiving terrific reviews. Amie: Savage Safari (Amie in Africa Book 5).

About the book

Amie, the world’s most reluctant spy is back.

Amie is assured that her next assignment will be easy and very safe. How could a safari camp in the African bush along with the President and international representatives from several countries possibly be dangerous?

She has no choice but to do as they say.

Simon has flown back to England for a brief meeting and then disappears. Amie has no idea where he is.

But not everyone is pleased about the rare and precious minerals discovered in the north and they are prepared to do whatever it takes to disrupt the safari and stop the auction even if it causes an international incident and people are killed.

Amie now has two lives to save…

About the book

Catling – She’s a weapon desired by those who reign and those who rebel.

In the tiered cities of Ellegeance, the elite Influencers’ Guild holds the power to manipulate emotions. Love and fear, pleasure and pain mark the extremes of their sway. But it’s the subtle blends that hook their victims’ hearts. They hide behind oaths of loyalty and rule the world.

Until Catling discovers the gift that will be her bane. She is the shield that disrupts the influencer’s sway.

Born in the grim warrens beneath the city, Catling rues the rose birthmark encircling her eye. Yet, it grants her a unique ability, the means to remake a civilization. To…

When Free Isn’t Really Free – Guest Post by, Jaq D Hawkins…

When FREE is not FREE

Chris The Story Reading Ape's Blog

One of my pet peeves in marketing is when someone offers something for free, but it isn’t really free. For example, recently I clicked on a free sample for a cosmetic, only to find that after getting your address details, they ask for a credit card because to get the free sample you have to subscribe to receiving a jar of cream every month and according to reviews, trying to cancel it is a nightmare! I closed the window and moved on.

In the realm of book sales, giving away free books has been a legitimate tactic since the indie publishing culture started. In the early days, free sales on Amazon would bump your sales figures and bring your book into that coveted top 100 where full price sales would follow. Amazon changed that so that the free books don’t affect the paid sales figures, but many authors still do…
