A Different Kind of Angel: A Novel Kindle Edition

by Paulette Mahurin

Inspired by real events chronicled by a journalist for The World News, Elizabeth Cochrane (pen name, Nellie Bly), in 1887.

Klara Gelfman’s life in Kiev was serene until she turned nineteen. That’s when Russia’s Tsar Alexander II was assassinated, and a vicious propaganda campaign spread that blamed the Jews for his death. Klara and her family became victims of the many pogroms breaking out throughout Russia. None were so violent as what hit Kiev in 1881. It was there that Klara’s family was torn asunder and her world changed forever.

This is the story of what happens to this traumatized, orphaned, young Jewish woman when she escapes Russia and crosses an ocean to arrive on the rough streets of New York City able to speak only a few words of English. There, in the land of the free, Klara’s life is thrown into turmoil when she is mistaken for a drunken prostitute. Mistreated by those entrusted to protect her—the police, a judge, doctors, and nurses—she is condemned to an unrelenting hellscape when she is incorrectly and involuntarily committed to a lunatic asylum.

At a time when women had no political, economic or professional rights, comes a story where corruption by the powerful was as overt and commonplace as was garbage on the New York City streets. From the award-winning, international best-selling author of The Seven Year Dress comes an unforgettable story of the devastating effects of persecution, hatred, and arrogance. A Different Kind of Angel is also a story of love, family, friendship, and loyalty. It is a journey into the nature and heart of the resilience of the human spirit that will leave readers thinking about the story long after they finish the book.

Land Roaming Whale.

A whale with legs and powerful jaws pursued prey on land and sea.

A new discovery of an amphibious whale that walked on land has been named after the Egyptian god of death and mummification, – ‘Anubis’

Egyptian scientists say the fossil of a four-legged prehistoric whale, unearthed over a decade ago in the country’s Western Desert, is that of a previously unknown species. The creature, an ancestor of the modern-day whale, is believed to have lived 43 million years ago.

The prehistoric whale, known as semi-aquatic because it lived both on land and sea, sported features of an accomplished hunter.

A Marine Whale, could catch you on land or water. I wonder did he say Semper Fi too?

25 Things Moms Hope Don’t Happen For The Holidays Kindle Edition

by A. White

It’s that best time of the year again.

I’d like to teach the world to sing
In perfect harmony
La, la, la, la
To, do, do, do, do, do
La, la, la

Christmas Comedy

https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/25-things-moms-hope-dont-happen-for-the-holidays-a-white/1125903876

Hmm, have you ever watched a television show where everything was perfect? Especially those nostalgic shows for Christmas and the holidays…especially commercials where you see all the holidays trimming all in neat packages. Every bow perfectly tied. The kids are sitting up smiling and behaving as if their right mind. Husband remembers to get the perfect Christmas gift and not appliance or tool which he wants. The mom is dizzy swirling around the kitchen cooking a perfect meal while wearing perfect make up, hair do and a wearing a big beautiful smile. She doesn’t have flour in her hair from baking, the counter top is in immaculate condition and so is the entire kitchen.

So you say, “Hmm, there’s nothing real in that scene having to do with real women. That isn’t the correct scene.”

So, I decided to write a this little book of humor of what real women are really thinking behind all the big smiles. What’s really going on and not what’s supposed to be or is ideal to be happening. Since we still can’t openly say what we’re thinking without serious repercussion. We’ve cheerfully left the era of Roseanne Connor and returned the June Cleaver. We sane women need a survival kit. Because the rest of our gender have lost their mind somewhere in the earthly Elysian Fields

Real women know that commercial is malarkey. That this isn’t what happens in real life. On an average it takes apparently twenty hours to prepare a full course Christmas dinner no matter which meat you prepare! Especially with all the trimmings such as stuffing, vegetables, and other side dishes; don’t forget the cakes, pies pastries, and cookies. And this is if you only plan to serve 6-8 people. This is not if you plan to serve 12 to 20 people which is not uncommon for a family gathering at Christmastime.

By the end of the cooking expedition you are staggering out of the kitchen looking you have been in a fight with the utensils.

Reader’s Question: Is Your Immortal Series Like Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan?

Reader’s Question: Is your immortal series like Percy Jackson Series by Rick Riordan?

Thank you for your question.

No, not really. The only thing we have in common are the immortals. Yes, there are lot of immortals interacting with humans, but in my stories no one is longing, yearning, nor exactly proud of an immortal parent who abandon them in infancy and acts like teenage jerks. Sure, of course the immortal characters wouldn’t be immortals if they weren’t suffering from jerklitis.

Some of the same immortals are mentioned in the Unholy Pursuit Saga as in the Percy Jackson immortals who deals primary with the Greek gods and goddesses. In this series mortals are listed from all parts of the world.

It’s a series more so for adults and young adults. Yes, the immortals are still siring and birthing nephilim (half-mortal) and skirting their responsibilities but there’s no camp to shelter these people.

Unlike the Percy Jackson series. In the most part of my series, the famed Immortals do not have an absolute free range to hurt and maim humans as they did in B.C and as indicated in the Percy Jackson series.

In my series, most of it take place in A.D., they have rules to divine oblige by if they do not wish to land in celestial prison. Now, this doesn’t stop them from looking for loop holes to get around punishment shall they harm an Adamite. {Human}

Adamites mean human beings, each Immortal and their descendants have a name associated with the Immortal, their progenitors.

I am not going to go into too much but it’s different.

Thank you for your interest. I hope you decide to read it and see for yourself.

Cyber Monday is Here! 🥳 🥳 🥳


The two biggest shopping days of the year are finally here. Black Friday has passed. Today is Cyber Monday.

But is Black Friday 2021 or Cyber Monday 2021 better for deals?

A solid rule of thumb is that Black Friday is a better time to buy newer, big-ticket items like televisions and laptops, and shop in stores.

Cyber Monday is a better day to shop for tech deals and smaller gifts. You’ll also see slightly better online discounts.

What is Cyber Monday?

Cyber Monday comes three days after Black Friday — the Monday after, naturally — and revolves around online deals. This year, Cyber Monday is on November 29.

Generally speaking, tech products are more widely discounted than anything else on this day.

Cyber Monday is actually now even bigger than Black Friday — retail sales on Cyber Monday in 2020 soared to a record high of $10.8 billion online.

Is Cyber Monday better than Black Friday?


Cyber Monday Is Here

Historically, yes. However, we expect the difference between the two holidays to be negligible this year, especially with many retailers encouraging customers to shop early and online with expected supply chain issues.

In past years, it’s found there to be a few differences, and the line between the two deal days has blurred considerably, with many retailers offering the same deals throughout the whole weekend (and even before and after). For items you’re likely to buy once a year or less often, you’ll probably find better discounts on Black Friday. Anything you’d buy as a gift is likely to have better discounts on Cyber Monday.

Black Friday works better for those who do have credit or debit cards. Despite popular belief, there’s still a large percentage of the population who are not online nor uses credit cards.

That said, overall savings aren’t the only thing to consider. Different products receive better discounts on each day, and the deals that each retailer offers will vary.

Black Friday meant big-ticket items with big deals on TVs, laptops, game consoles, and more during Black Friday week, many [people’s] purchases end up being for themselves or their own households.”

This year, we saw a lot of deals crop up weeks before Black Friday. Retailers are encouraging shoppers to shop early and online — a stark departure from previous years. Black Friday used to be characterized by long lines, crowded stores, and the mad rush for bargains, but that, of course, is impossible during the pandemic.

That said, shoppers can look forward to shopping for the very best deals without ever leaving their house, regardless of whether they choose to shop on Black Friday, on Cyber Monday, or right now.

When to shop Black Friday versus Cyber Monday

King Eochaidh the Horse Warrior: The First Book of the Draconian Quadrilogy

So far, the most popular book in the series.

Shop Black Friday for major stores; shop Cyber Monday for secondhand buys

For Black Friday, look to the biggest retailers, the ones who can afford to have smaller margins. Places like Walmart and Best Buy tend to offer the best deals on Black Friday. The exception is Amazon, which tends to have better deals on Cyber Monday, as long as you’re a Prime member.

If you’re willing to buy products from resellers, Cyber Monday is a great time to shop on eBay. “You’ll find a lot of people reselling items they just purchased on Black Friday.

Shop Black Friday for this year’s products; shop Cyber Monday for older generations

Latest-generation products tend to be cheaper on Black Friday than on Cyber Monday. Cyber Monday is a terrific time for smart-home [devices], TVs, and consoles that are older.”

No matter when or where you shop, use a credit card with purchase protection.

Especially if you’re buying something expensive like a laptop or TV, it’s best to use a credit card that offers purchase protection. If you pay with a card that offers this benefit and a covered item is stolen or damaged, you can receive reimbursement — much better than being out hundreds of dollars if something goes wrong.

Some of the top rewards credit cards offer this benefit. Coverage varies from card to card and is generally valid for up to 120 days after you purchase an item. Be sure to read the terms and conditions ahead of time so you’re familiar with any exclusions and caps on reimbursement.

Without Your Consent.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.

Eleanor Roosevelt
Fearful Face on Apple iOS 14.6

Although, I’m putting the quote through I don’t fully agree with it.

It all depends on one’s station and position in life as to whether those with authority over them can make them feel inferior.

Children are sometimes made feel inferior by adults without their consent.

Women are often made feel inferior without their consent.

Minorities are often made feel inferior without their consent.

Black Fridays- The Rush For Incredible Deals.

Some people around camp outside waiting for the Walmart Super Center to open.

I never did this.

I always shopped early or late in the year depending on who you asked. Hid the gifts an goodies and avoided what about to happen in the next few hours.

I attended one Black Friday Morning Rush once when I was younger and didn’t know any better. It’s a mad rush I never wanted to get caught up in. The Rush was at Toyland.

The stores here at the Mall opened at 6:00 P.M.

Black Friday is a colloquial term for the Friday following Thanksgiving in the United States. It traditionally marks the start of the Christmas shopping season in the United States.

The 400th Anniversary Of Thanksgiving. The 1621 harvest feast

In 1620, a small group of English separatists packed up and headed for the New World in search of religious freedom. Calling themselves “Saints” (the term “Pilgrims” wouldn’t be used to describe the settlers for another 200 years), they headed to what is now Delaware but landed in Plymouth in November after being blown off course by storms. The colonists first encountered the peaceful yet cautious Wampanoag the following spring.

At the time, the two disparate groups were attempting to find common ground. In April 1621, both had signed a treaty pledging to come to the aid of the other in case of attack. After losing nearly half of their settlers to sickness during their first winter in America, the English were teetering on extinction. The Wampanoag weren’t far from that reality themselves: Between 1616 and 1619, diseases introduced by European colonizers killed up to 90 percent of New England’s Native population in an epidemic now referred to as the Great Dying. Greatly weakened, the tribe also needed help fending off incursions from the Narragansett, a rival Native group.

That fall of 1621, the feast’s wary attendees were still learning about each other, says Donna Curtin, executive director of Pilgrim Hall, America’s oldest continuously operated public museum.

“These two groups very recently formed an alliance and are still getting acquainted with each other,” she explains. “You have to look at this with diplomatic overtones. In today’s Thanksgiving tradition, most people really don’t look at that aspect of it. This was a way to cement this very fresh alliance between the English and … the leader of the many tribal elements [Massasoit] represented.”
