NonTG but Important Info for Veterans

I have been made aware that there is a program available for veterans whose income is very low. If you served during a time of conflict, and your income is below 1000 dollars a month,you can get financial help from the V.A. to bring it to that level. IF you are also disabled or unable to get out easily, there is another program called "Housebound" which can raise your income level considerably higher, and assistance to get things like blood pressure monitors, air conditioners, oxygen equipment and other necessities to help make your life a bit easier.

Trump bans Trans people from US Military

Blog About: 

Author: 

US President Donald Trump today announced that Transgendered people can't serve in the US Military.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-us-canada-40729996

This seems to be another rolling back the advances made under the previous president.

How very different this is from the British Military as some people who post here know from first hand experience.

Sad, so very sad.
Samantha

Well at least I found it amusing.

Many moons hither, a friend - to my delight - gave me a present of a bra, one which was designed to assist with what would otherwise be an atypical flatness for a female. I loved the curves this bra gave me.

Somehow, it ended up at the back of the drawer and the white straps were gently fading into yellow, and one of the hooks of the hook and eye pair needed sewing back on on one side, and so on and so forth. So said bra gradually dropped from my list of favourites - plus it didn't really sit well with the prosthetics I eventually summoned up both the courage and the dosh to buy.

It Can Only Go Up From Here (short scene)

"I miss this. The family getting together again here again." Aunt Lydia stated as passed a bowl of dressing to Grans.
"What is that supposed to mean?" Mom snarled.
"It means I miss the family getting together-"
"We used to get together but you decided to stop it."
Aunt Lydia placed her hands on her lap, bowed her head and closed her eyes, in an attempt to stay calm.
"Rachel, this is not--"
"It's a perfect time to talk about it. Seeing the fact that we're 'all' here, right? Mom, me, you, Alan, Krystal, James--and who are you again?"

Finally! A New Karin Bishop Book!

After too long, I have a new book—Day in the Sun. It's set in Hollywood of the 1930s and has taken a mountain of research, but it's been a real labor of love, something I've wanted to write about for quite awhile.

"Day in the Sun" at Amazon.com

Job Hunting for Millenials

I may be on the early side of that particular designation, but I'm pretty sure I qualify, right? Born in the late '80s, some college but no degree, blah de blah. Yep.

So here's the deal. I've spent the last 3 months looking for a new job. I've applied for quite a few, as a receptionist, at call centers, more than a few sales positions from Best Buy to Target... all in all, I've sent out probably 10 or 12 resumes/applications.

I've gotten a call back on all of 2, and an interview out of only 1.

How I define myself

If anyone has read my work on site, (s)he can certainly see that I am (or at least my muse is) a quite unusual person. I would guess the one word that would define me best is eclectic. You see, I, first and foremost, am NOT a gifted author, as so many on this site are. Writing for me is both a passion and, at times, an intense struggle. I have no style that I can truly call my own, and have had very little training (save the one Creative Writing class I took way back in high school - back when dinosaurs still roamed the Earth).

NEW shadowsblade is here!

New chapter is posted for your enjoyment!

This post is the end of Shadowblades first year at Whateley and she will do more beyond it!

So have fun with this one while I write the summer fun issue coming soon!

And for a reader note, I and Nuuan do leave little Easter eggs all over our story posts! So far no one is really swooping on the ones laying around?

clue is that extra box in Ro's story and Nuuan just left a bunch in his last post!

Most of all have fun~!

"KO," peried Riddle Lead Hiding Wood. "I'll mo motorrow gorning, as it is lite quate."

In this chapter... Eric is shocked at what Julia did to him but she assures him he really wanted it and explains why.

I was brought to tears today

Blog About: 

Author: 

I was brought to tears in church today.

See, we had a special service for pets today, and my pastor asked if I would be temporarily in charge of her dog while she conducted the service. To help keep the dog close to me she gave me a handful of treats to give out during the service.

Well, it didnt take the dog long to figure out what I had in my hand, and so became my best friend, sitting beside me and occasionally trying to sniff my hands to see which one had the treats. When I put my face close to his in response to this, he licked me.

Information about member PS?

Forums: 

Does anyone know the status of PS? PS hasn't posted a blog entry since 2013, and isn't responding to message requests. I'd like to contact PS since PS is the most recent contact point that I've been able to track down for The Professor, whose permission PS received to repost some of his stories on this site back in 2010; using the Message To The Author link from The Professor's stories on this site generates a message to PS.

Thanks!

I been mulling over how to write this for a little while. I used this blog to get personal things off my mind in an impersonal manner. I mean take what I am thinking about and write it in such a manner that it is about the issue itself and how it affects society, not me. I feel like if I make it about me I would just be complaining.

The Box's Pandora part 22


When 15 year old Byron and his family go to visit Aunt Dora during spring break, they soon find themselves under an unexpected attack. In the aftermath, Byron's body and life change in ways that he never could have expected, or imagined.

August Hatbox and the last week of July

Author: 

We've nearly made it through the month. Amazon and Kindle will pay us in a week and we will be able to make our bills in August with the regular flow of gifts to help.

There's just this little bit of July left....

We've got about $125 in the bank, Piper, Cat and I have not paid ourselves this week and there are one or two middling size bills out there to pay.

So if you can help us out to get through the week without taking out a loan, it will be greatly appreciated.

The muse has returned

Okay I know everyone is wanting the next installment of Super Soldier, but this short story sitting unfinished for so long due to real life issues scaring my muse so badly she wouldn't come out form under the bed no matter what I offered to write. okay so the muse wasn't the only issue. most the time I was so tired I fell asleep at the keyboard when I tried to start writing.

Why Not

Author's Note: I am trying something different in my style of story telling.

Feeling exacerbated by yet again hearing the same question from another worried friend, Lizzy demanded to know. “Why Not!?”

Elizabeth Potter was sick of having to explain and justify why she was going out with who was the perfect man for her. The lady was sick of defending her choice. From now on she was going to make the people who asked defend the question. It was a stupid question which people used just to show their disapproval of who she was with.
