Even though we're past this stupid piece of nonsense that the end of the world sillies keep wishing would happen to us because they don't want to deal with their lives, I thought I'd add it as a reminder to be humble.
Just because something quacks like a duck, doesn't always make it a duck.
The end of the world happens every day for abused women, war victims, pets left in hot cars, people caught in hurricanes, earthquakes, tidal waves and other natural calamities.
I could go on, but why?
I watched the latest episode of America's Got Talent and was saddened by the loss of some of the contestants and happy for others. Just like a good movie, or a great book, heroes are born and heroes die. So it is with competitions. I really feel the talented ones who didn't get picked to go on will survive and prosper if they don't give up.
Also, after the above, I watched the latest episode of Halle Berry's Extant. That show has me cursing and laughing, weeping and yelling. It's so darned frustrating watching the people do such stupid things and yet there I am caught up in it along with the heroes and villains. Don't ask me why I like this show, other than Halle Berry's outstanding performance.
If you haven't watched the series, check it out. It's on Wednesday nights at 10pm on CBS.
In the process at this very moment of writing a new story in my ongoing Baker Street Adventures. This one features the offspring of some of my main characters.
The title of the story is: The Case of the Deadly Serpent King.
I'm taking the stories in a totally new direction and am including characters from my Chittles and Red Eye stories.
My Weebly site which hopefully will soon be my permanent author site: John Pirillo
I was on the phone with Yahoo, speaking to a tech in India and online with a tech from Weebly and both said everything was right, but still nothing works.
Almost a week of phone calls and online messages and no progress yet.
This is me on the goofups going on.

Rocketman 1 is published on Amazon and Smashwords tonight. The final cover will be posted here at that time as well.
"The Secret War" is not so far off from reality as many might think. The Nazis came damn close to winning World War Two and if they had been able to compete some of their super weapons on time, New York and perhaps a few other cities in the United States would now be radioactive pits just like Hiroshima and Nagasaki became by our hands.
This string of tales takes place during World War 2 and World War 3, so we can see what might have happened in the future had things gone wrong for us.
Close to finishing my Professor Moriarity novel. It's going to be close to or a bit over 300 pages with a lot of love and interesting characters, not to mention a whole new take on the Holmes mythology.
Be prepared to love Moriarity as much as you hated him at one time.
See Watson like you've never seen him before!
Coming soon to Smashwords, Amazon and in paperback.
The above book cover is one of several I am considering for my novel. I haven't finalized it yet because I'm still working on the novel, but as I get closer I'll come up with a final one. I'll post variations here for you to check out and offer an opinion if you like.
