After having quite a few short stories published, I decided to start my own novel. I worked on the plot and characters meticulously. The time had come to begin. It was a struggle getting the first five thousand words. But I continued to write. Then, I hit 10,000 words and I continued to write. I hit 20,000 words and I started to feel like I had something special going. I hit 30,000 words. I was excited! Then, Murphy's Law showed its ugly head. My wife Lisa had been off work since November 2007. Her illness took a turn for the worst. We spent the entire summer in and out of hospitals. Sadly, I would have lost her if I hadn't have revived her on an afternoo...

If you're looking for a special holiday gift, visit Christmas on Euclid, a show that brings about 100 crafters and small business people to downtown Ontario. The event will be on Euclid Avenue, from Holt Boulevard to G Street on Saturday, Dec. 6, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There's no admission charge, but with 30,000 shoppers expected, you may have to park a few blocks away. Live music and a variety of children's activities makes Christmas on Euclid special. If you have dogs, or canine pals, look for the vendors selling clothing and bakery treats.
