Magestic Moose!

The dog days of summer are now upon us, and it's always a good time to enjoy the moose days of summer too. We thought we'd share some marvelous moose pictures that were shared with us. Hopefully these will bring a smile to your face and add a little sunshine to your day!

Thanks Mukkove for sharing this!  I wish this was my yard instead of yours!

Thanks Rena for sharing the peek-a-boo momma and baby moose!

Book Review: Write About Me

I got this book a while back as a free Kindle book.  I found both the title and cover interesting.  Write About Me by Melissa Pouliot will capture your attention and keep you rooting for Annabelle's safety and survival.  This book is definitely for those who are teens or older because of the difficult subject matter.  My full review of Write About Me appears below.

Write About Me by Melissa-Jane Pouliot was an interestingly disturbing story. "Write about me, cause I'm dead" is a line from the book that sticks with me. Though this story is fiction, it was inspired by the author's own cousin who ran away from home years ago and was never heard from again. This story takes a look at personality disorders, living on the streets, making choices, taking chances and the consequences that can result. I was intrigued also because the setting of this story is Australia, a part of Australia that you don't hear about when making travel plans that's for sure. Some of the language and scenes are rough, but selling yourself to survive can be a scary and deadly prospect. If you know any troubled teenage girls, this book may be an eye-opener for them.
