Thundermother : #AtoZChallenge

Who: Thundermother of Sweden

What: Rock and roll.

Why: You might be thunderstruck by the ladies of Thundermother. They are fans of Janis Joplin. I think Janis Joplin would be a fan of Thundermother.

It is my opinion that they will deliver on a solid rock and roll album, which will be out in the fall of 2020. Their music videos are also a good time. Check out their links and videos.

Beneath the Broken Moon: #bookreview

Beneath the Broken Moon by Patrick Todoroff was set in a land similar to Middle Earth after the apocalypse.

The main character is Addas, a half human half ork, who has been living in an ork settlement. I use the term living loosely. He is not treated well by anyone except maybe a goblin named Snat. Somehow he is volunteered to be the tracker for a Dwarf/Ork expedition. Addas has never done any tracking in his life. However, doing this job may lead to something better. He believes that it cannot be worse than his current situation.

He doesn’t know how to read and he hears the voice of his deceased mentor, Chalk.

So the expedition begins and Addas leads them to the next point without many problems. He does begin to piece together that there is more to this trip than anyone tells him.

I did enjoy reading this book, except that the print was so tiny. It was a fluke with my Kindle. Luckily my new glasses came yesterday.

If you enjoy sci-fi or fantasy, then you should give this book a chance.

If you don’t like adventure or books from a different perspective then maybe this isn’t the book for you.

Cold Case: Christine Nelson

Christine Nelson

At the time of her death, Christine Nelson was estranged from her four children and family. She had a drug addiction and became involved in prostitution.

Nelson was found on Dolle Avenue in Columbus on April 17, 1999. She had been beaten to death and left in the street. She was only 34 years old.

There have not been any suspects named. She was living a high-risk lifestyle. Her murder could have been related to drugs or prostitution. Unfortunately, Nelson met the wrong person and her life ended too soon.

Area where Nelson was found

I don’t know how no one saw anything but no one has said a word. Not one person saw the killer dump Nelson’s body in the street. Her clothes were found down the street from where she was found. How did no one see anything?

People are awake at all times of the day and night. The area that she was found is busy 24/7. Someone saw something.

I wonder if Nelson’s case could be connected to the case of Willatte Collins, who died in a similar way in 2002.

Hopefully, people will start coming forward with information. It really is time to give Nelson’s family the answers to this mystery.

How to not be so poor

https://www.etsy.com/listing/520907445/pattern-help-me-im-poor-mini-funny-cross

Dude,

I have so much experience with being poor. It’s taken some time to figure out how to not be really and truly poor. I mean, I’m still a broke ass bitch.

However, the money situation is not as bad as it used to be. In fact, my credit score has improved enough that I could buy a new car. At a real car dealership instead of from some guy on craigslist or down the road.

Here is what I know. Maybe it will help you get your house in order.

If you know the secret to making money, you can let us all know.

  1. Take a close look at your finances on a weekly basis. I know it’s scary but you have to work through the fear. It’s the only way.
  2. Most banks have an app for your phone. Use it.
  3. Budget. Budget. Budget. For awhile, I stopped writing down what bills and how much. Huge mistake on my part. You might think you have extra money and forget to pay the water bill. Big oops. So now I have a little binder with a folder for each month.
  4. If you have a subscription to anything that comes out of your checking, don’t forget about it when doing the bills. If you subscribe to something for a time when it’s free, don’t forget to cancel it before you have to pay or remember that it’s going to cost money.
  5. Be aware of your credit score. Also terrifying but necessary. If you want a house or a car, you need to know what is going on with your credit.
  6. Sustainability. Can you survive on your income? What can you do to make it work? How much can you do for yourself? Some people make their own coffee instead of going to Starbucks. It’s delicious coffee. Can you afford $25 a week on coffee?
  7. Side hustle. Everyone probably has a side hustle – blogging, eBay, Etsy, etc.. You have to decide if it’s worth it. Does it make money or waste time? Personally, I have never, ever, ever made money from doing surveys. So for me, it’s a waste of time.

I have a budget board on Pinterest. Take a look, there might be something that helps you figure out the disaster that is your financial health.
