Strange Stories, Amazing Facts

As a child, I read World Book Encyclopedias and the Guinness Book of World Records. Yes, I actually sat and read volumes as a child. I still love reading factual information, especially when it piques my curious nature. My young mind couldn’t totally grasp all the content of these books, but it was enough to set me on a continuing quest for wisdom, odd facts, and spectacular human feats. I’m content to scour books, libraries, old newspapers and microfiche…and I’ve always been this way. For whatever reason, I tend to avoid “non-fiction” books because if it’s not something that actually happened, I don’t want to know about it.

Back in the 1970’s, Reader’s Digest published a book that I consider a classic to this day: Strange Stories, Amazing Facts. The subtitle of the book reads: “Stories That are Bizarre, Unusual, Odd, Astonishing, and Often Incredible”.

The book is, and was, a favorite of mine. Another editor confesses that this book is also a favorite of hers.

Blogging By The Numbers

Dear reader, I see that you stopped in – THANK YOU!

I’m very thankful for everyone who tunes into what I have to say and display to the world. I try my best to have interesting Zazzle products and to post fascinating articles for your enjoyment. I’ve always loved current events and pop culture, so I hope you’ve had fun and learned something new from my blog.

I’m also trying to change careers – and for me, that’s led me to change focus a bit. I’m exploring photography more, so expect some more photos. I’m working on obtaining a DSLR camera to highlight what I believe is a burgeoning career in that field. However, that’s a longer-term project. In the short-term, I’m trying my hand, literally, at blogging to create an online portfolio to showcase my writing skills.

As of this writing, I don’t yet have 100 bloggers, and I see that many people I follow have thousands – I aspire to have that kind of audience! I’m learning from all of you every day.

Many of you are fellow Zazzlers, many are full-time bloggers, and many are WordPress supporters. You’ve been with me, clicking on and “liking” my posts, which is extremely helpful to me in so many ways. You are helping someone personally and professionally, and I sincerely appreciate it.

Again, thank you for your kindness in helping a fellow blogger out 🙂

¿¿¿¿¿¿¿Can Anybody Help Me Get A Tech Support Job????????



Alrighty blog viewers, it’s entirely possible that you can help me get my next job!

~What will I do in return – um, dinner? No idea, but I can reward you somehow~



I’m all about relocating and traveling, and I’ve decided to move to the Wilmington, Delaware area – land of corporations! I’ll even move to Dover if the job is right.

  • I do desktop and network tech support – internal or external – and I have 15+ years of experience.

  • I know both Windows and Mac – hardware and software.

  • I’d love to work from home – telecommuting is fun!

  • I have a profile on LinkedIn.com – please contact me for more info.

  • I’m willing to travel, relocate, work night shifts, be on call – no young kids or spouse, so I’m free to move about the cabin.

  • …Except that I won’t fly. I’ll drive anywhere, though.

  • I don’t own a home, but I want to help my grown son get one – I need a secure job on paper in order to help him.

**I expect the unexpected, so at least I’ll take a shot at the blogging community to see what comes of it – surprise me!**

THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!!
