character-quotes-image“I was remembering how we met. You had a very unique interview technique,” Saige mused.

“I was really trying to get in your pants. You know that, right?” Brodie replied.

“I had that figured out, yeah.”

“That subtle, was I?”

“As a train wreck, Brodie.”

“If you hadn’t been with Ben, would I have had a chance?”

She looked over his sun-bronzed, Greek god physique and golden blond, blue eyed face with the appraising eye of a woman on the prowl.

“Oh, no chance at all,” she said sarcastically. “So not my type. I’m not into the completely gorgeous, sexy, super model, stud type. I’m immune to your charms, Malcolm Brodie.” She shook her head, trying to keep her face neutral.

“Damn,” Brodie sighed, easing his muscular body through the tightly grouped chairs. “Cause I’m sure as hell not immune to yours.”

CHARACTER QUOTES FROM PLAYING DEAD–MY NANO

Standard

Cereal Authors

“I had to call Gibbons about something to do with Bo’s case. I asked if you were around and told him I wanted to ask you about grief counseling. What I didn’t tell him, was that I wanted to invite you over for dinner as you treated last time.  Are you interested? I don’t think therapy of any kind can hurt me. Don’t be offended but I want someone besides you.”

“I’m not but I am curious.”

“It’s more important that you be my friend not my counselor.”

“I totally agree.  If you want a recommendation, Marla Davis is good.”

“I’ll keep her in mind but I am not sure you can be objective where I am concerned.”

“I can be very objective but in your case, I don’t want to be.”

“How about we discuss this glaring lack of objectivity over dinner, I have lasagne in the oven.  I…

Christmas Cake & Traditions

Christmas Cake & Traditions

Cereal Authors

Growing up in England, it wasn’t unusual to have the traditional Christmas cake this time of year. British Christmas cakes, the original, are complete with marzipan, spices, brandy, and royal icing. My mom used to bake them and taught me how to bake them as well. If you’ve ever had the British version of the Christmas cake, you’d know they’re usually put into the acquired taste category. This is often because the spices can be quite strong and of course, ours have liquor in them (especially home made).  And since it’s added afterward, it isn’t cooked out during the baking process.

The cake is prepared and cooked two months before Christmas so that it can be stored and ‘fed’ with Brandy or Sherry, personal preference, weekly until Christmas. It contains the usual butter, flour, eggs, but also has spices (representing the wise men), black treacle, almonds and dried fruit. The…

Another Stoles’ Prototype

              I have always loved history of all types. It’s usually inventions that I take the time to look at.

Sholes’ One Key Prototype

I know, most people find this of no interest. But what can I say, I think if someone takes the time to come up with anything that would make others lives easier, they deserve to be admired. Even if it’s just by me!

             You might not believe this, but there are quite a lot of articles written about the typewriter.

I found some articles that say that it all started in the 1900’s when Christopher Latham Sholes, whose work on the typewriter is undisputed, asked for carbon paper at the Milwaulee Wisconsin Telegraph Company to use with…

Character Quotes from Room 113 A Marice Houston Mystery by Dellani

Standard

Cereal Authors

Room 113 A Marice Houston Mystery“That is somewhat reprehensible,” I said after a couple minutes of them gloating.

“Oh, come on, Houston. Don’t bust our humps over this. You ladies know that you use, on occasion, your womanly wiles to capture a man’s interest. You’re lying if you say you haven’t,” Arnie said.

Remarkably brave of him, considering there were more women in the room than men.

“Prove me wrong and I’ll apologize.” He crossed his beefy arms defensively.
