I Wrote a New BOOK!!!!

I’ve been working on this secret project for more than a year just after I bought my laptop computer back in December 2015.  The new book is called:

The Outside In View of Uncommon Bostonian: 

What a Autistic Black Woman Sees

I went to the publisher called BookBaby to create both a paperback book and an ebook.  It includes the blog posts I made when the orignal Uncommon Bostonian blog was connected to The Boston Now dailey newspaper back in 2007 to 2008.  It also has some of the essays I’ve written in recent years and some of my black and white paintings that I made in the last couple of years.  I write about the Beatles, the soap One Live to Live, the Dave Clark Five, the Monkees, and other things.  I created the artwork on the cover.  It’s my Purple Haze painting.

Here’s a picture of both the front and back cover of the paperback.

Remembering John Lennon

Sad Anniversary of his murder. It’s been 38 years! 😢

Miss you a lot, John! You did a lot in your short life. You will never be forgotten. You have influenced many so far!

All we need is love and give peace a chance.

Happy B-Day, Kurt! Happy End of World War 1’s 100 Anniversary!

Happy Birthday, Kurt Vonnegut (November 11, 1922 – April 11, 2007)

My favorite author would have been 96 years old today! Sadly, he left us back in 2007.  I love reading his books.  He was also a World War 2 veteran.

Happy Veterans Day!

It’s better known as Armistice Day which was the day that World War 1 ended.  Today is the 100th anniversary of the end of the war.  I was at church today at 11 am, and my pastor rang the church’s bell.

My great-grandfather was a doughboy in that war.  He died back in the mid-1950’s due to the long term effects of his being exposed to mustard gas during the war. Never had the chance to meet him because I was born almost ten years after he died.

Kurt Vonnegut!

Happy Birthday in Heaven, Tom!

Happy 68th Birthday, Tom Petty! (October 20, 1950 to October 2, 2017)

Still find it hard to believe that Tom left us last year.  It’s been pretty rough on all of us!

Recently, his family and his band, the Heartbreakers, have released An American Treasure box set of unreleased material.  Check it out!

Also, this month marks the 30th anniversary of the formation of the Traveling Wilburys which included Tom as a member along with George Harrison, Bob Dylan, Roy Orbison, and Jeff Lynne.
