Internet Dating, Russian Brides, Humor

Let us continue with my love life struggles as I attempt to dissuade true love from Eastern Europe. It amazes how men fall for these hotties from Russia, The Philippines, Asia or any other country. Men, the first item we need to examine is there ability to speak and write in the English language and not how big her cup size is. Granted, it doesn't hurt for us to look, but it you embark on bringing her home to meet Mom and Dad, then all is lost. 

My current fling appears to be named, Valentina. Strange. First glance I thought it was Valentino. Didn't realize he was back from the dead. Okay, enough rambling. Let's have a look at the current letter. 


Hello!
I want to meet a real man, for communication and can be
create a serious relationship. I received your e-mail agency dating. We can take a closer look.
I think I would be interested to talk to you. And I'll try to do
what would you say it was too interesting to me. Tell us about yourself
and where do you live? I am want to meet with you.
I would be pleased to receive your response, and we can
exchange pictures and know each other better.

Best wishes. Valentina

My Response: Do you pole dance? 

If you followed the stories of Nadezhda and Julia you understand how I would lead them on and on and on before they either gave up, threw in the towel or misplaced their English dictionaries. In this case I thought it best to just get to the point in hopes of not allowing her the time to ramble on. However, If she does respond I'll be jumping right into the thick of it. 

One last note, let's post a pic and you tell me if she's related to Julia. 



Maybe they're twins???

Science Fiction, Thriller, Technology, Fourth Reich

Who's ready for a sample chapter from "Target Berlin"? Wait no longer. The book won't be complete for another month, but I decided it was time let readers get a glimpse of things to come. 


CHAPTER 1

REGROUPING


Charlotte, North Carolina

It was two weeks before Judith could walk by herself. Larry never left her side as he nursed her back to health. At times he needed to use a stern tone with Rose to back-off, he had this. At first she bristled with his obstinance but relinquished when she understood how much he cared for her. He forced her to eat even when she didn’t want to. The only function she was allowed to perform was reminding him to take his daily medications. She’d seen once when he skipped a dose and threatened to evict him if his gentlemanly manners didn’t improve, and in a hurry. He never missed another dose. The only time he left her side was to call his parents about the upcoming appointment with the Neurologist, Doctor Roberts. They tried to convince him how difficult it was to schedule an appointment with a renown neurologist. He didn’t care. He would come home when Judith was better.

* * *

Dean and Sam remained a few more days after the funeral, but they still had jobs to attend and excused themselves, promising to return when Judith was feeling better. Rose knew it wasn’t a polite excuse. These men were truly connected and cared for their new colleagues.
Muki and Abdul spent their time visiting the sites around Charlotte. It wasn’t Nashville, but they made the best of it, visiting the Speedway, Music Hall of Fame, Billy Graham Library, Aviation Museum, Wadsworth Estate and the Charlotte Powerhouse Museum. They asked Rose if she’d like to go, but she respectfully declined until Judith was better.


Berlin

“How was your trip, sir?” Adolphus stared at Karl.
“You’ve seen the news haven’t you?”
“Concerning the Pentagon?”
“Yes you fool, what else would I be referring to?”
“I apologize, sir.”
“It was what I feared. A total failure. All the intricate plans we laid out for eighty years vanished because Gerhardt became too confident in his own abilities. Like Leonoid, he perished and took our organization, which we painstakingly built, with him. There might be a few minor agents across the United States, but our core is gone.”
“Yes sir.”
“Yes sir, what? Yes sir we’ve failed? Yes sir we’ve bungled a great opportunity? Or yes sir, it’s time to direct my efforts elsewhere?”
“I presume the later, sir.”
“Your presumption is correct, Karl. We tried to use diplomacy. We tried to work from within and we tried to accomplish our task with civilized technology designed to reduce, what is the term?” He looked in the air for the answer. “Ah, yes, collateral damage. No more Karl. No more shall we hide in the shadows as the world disintegrates into debauchery and decadence. No more shall we remain idle as the failing powers of the U.N., China, the U.S. and NATO, dictate spineless edicts, bathing themselves in accolades and praise!” He rose from his chair. “No more Karl. No more! We shall avenge the past. We shall right the wrongs and bring order to this desolate cesspool of humanity. It is time. It is our time! Like my father, who resurrected Germany from the ashes of the Versailles Treaty, we too shall soon take our rightful place in the world and they will tremble when the Thunder of Thor ROARS out of the heavens, raining death and destruction to the unbelievers!” He fell into his chair exhausted. “Karl, call Professor Mecklenberg. Inform him it is time for Thor to fly.
“Yes, sir.”
“And Karl.”
“Yes, sir.”
“I’d like a nice glass of warm milk before I retire.”
“Yes, sir.”  Karl exited the room. 
Adolphus rotated his chair, admiring the power of the portrait on the wall. A smile crept over his lips. “Heil, Father.”


Palermo, SICILY

“Welcome Nathan Francisco. It is a pleasure to make your acquaintance. We’ve heard many good things from Don Campesie. He speaks most highly of you.”
“Thank you, Don Tiseo. The pleasure is all mine. May I suggest, before we talk business, to pay our respects to those who fell so many years ago fighting against the Germans?” He bent over, kissing his signet.
“An excellent suggestion. First, we shall travel to my humble estate and eat. It is not wise to venture on an empty stomach.”
“Agreed.”


New London

Dean was catching up on non-essential e-mails and briefs from the Navy Yard. All the reports revolved around the events at the Pentagon and the government fall-out. Politics is such a waste of time and energy. He shut down the system out of boredom, but not before a memory chip picked up an unusual vibration in the Salzburg Mountains.


Houston

“Joe, that was some of the craziest shit I’ve ever seen in my life.” It was at least the tenth time Sam told him the story.
“I know Sam. You’ve been talking about it for so long, the cows don’t wanna come home and I can’t blame ‘em.”
“Come on Joe. How can you get tired of it. I mean, seriously. The whole U.S. government could have been taken down and we’d be living under the swastika. Dammit man, everything could have change.”
“Yeah, but it didn’t. Now, if you’d have found a way for the Astros to stop losing, that would be something.” Sam knew when he was had.
“Okay Joe, I’ll see what I can do about that, but no promises” Each man shared a slight laugh.


WASHINGTON d.c.

“What is our next move Mr. President? It’s been two weeks.” asked Vice-President Andrews.
“It’s time to tell the American people exactly what happened and why.”
“But Mr. President, is that a wise move? Will the public be able to stomach the truth?”
He turned around displaying the serious glare many were now accustomed to. “John, can you stomach the truth? Have you come to terms with how close the government came to being overthrown? Do you rest peacefully at night with your wife by your side, or do you wake-up screaming every two hours knowing the horrors which were unleashed?” He didn’t give him a chance to respond. “No! I have prepared a speech for today’s press conference. The Beltway has been too secretive and closed door for too many decades. It’s time to unlock the closets and let the chips fall where they may.”
“Very well, Mr. President.”
Taylor turned the chair back to the window. “John, for once, we aren’t going to take a poll. We aren’t going to worry about fall-out or political posturing. The people put us in office. It’s time we trusted those who trusted us.”
“Yes, sir. Even if it cost us our careers? ” 
“Yes.”

Milestone 30,000!

I consider this a monumental accomplishment for LDDJ. Despite having this blog for over two years, I never really did much with it. Treated it more as a side show then anything else. That changed in December, 2014 when I started allocating a certain amount of time each week to post stories, reviews and increase marketing. Up till December, there were less than 12,000 visits in those two years. In the last four months, it's averaging over 6,000 hits per month. That is something to shout about!

Thank you for all the support.

Trashy, NFL, Romance Story

When I set out to write this book, I was focusing on writing a satirical account about the Dallas Cowboys of the 90's. I had no idea what I'd written would be referred to as a trashy romance novel. Appears I was mistaken as is evidenced by the current reviews. I guess looking back, they have a point. There is a lot of sex, more than I initially thought and at times, some pretty raunchy scenes. Yeah, the party scene in the locker room after the first Super Bowl Victory with Charlene, Ruben and Marshall is pretty disgusting, yet humorous at the same time.  

I want to thank the reviewers for taking the time to point at that I have managed to combine, "North Dallas Forty, Bull Durham, Ball Four and Major League" into one raucous, raunchy tale.

If you're ready for a story, sure to tickle your funny bone, what are you waiting for?

Vampires versus the Third Reich, Poland, Germany, Russia

Today, I was going through all the books I still have in stock. It's quite an impressive list. Out of over 1400 ordered, I only have 173 in stock. Let's break down what they are.

1st and only run of the revised cover for Occupation. 


I doubt I'll run this cover in printed version any time soon as the original cover is doing well. However, I'm not one to deceive buyers, there are misspelled names in this copy. Iva should be Ivan, In some places Yakov became Kharkov and Mustafa the III came out as Mustang.

I'm reducing the price for this limited run to $7.00 That includes shipping, U.S. only. That is a fifty percent savings!  For all other countries, the total comes to $22.00. Out of country shipping is ridiculous!  To get your copy, go to my  Paypal, LDDJ Enterprises Publishing.

Veterans of all wars. Book review

It's been a long time since  I posted a book review. Time I remedied that issue. Robert Lamon has released his historical fictional work about his experiences during this turbulent war. Yes, it was a war, not a Police Action or Resolution. 

This is not you common tale of a soldier's memories of surviving combat. Oh, no. It's much more than that. This work deals with the psychological damage our men and women suffer on the battlefield and the unseen scars they bring home and deal with every day. 

With PTSD at the forefront of the medical work, many are now properly diagnosed and treated for the crippling disease. This wasn't the case in the 40's, 50's, 60's and 70's. 

When I finished reading this excellent work, I was left wondering how many more names should be added to wall in Washington?

Today's Motivational Thought



Believing in your own self-worth is the first critical step in beginning a new start.  

Fifty Shades of sex, betrayal and murder!

I know the world, especially females, are so wet for "Fifty Shades of Grey," I think the battery manufacturers are having a hard time keeping up with the current demand. No surprise there as it did sell over 100 million copies. I could only get through one chapter. Sorry gals, but this is one of the worst books I've ever read. 

Now some of you are probably saying I haven't read any good erotica. That would be false. I have an ample collection from Charity Parkerson, Sandra Wolters and Regina Puckett. These gals can, when the moment hits,  write some good steamy material. Don't believe me? Check them out and you won't be disappointed. 

I've also read a book by J.J. Reinhardt. This is one of the nastiest, brutal works I've ever come across. It is filled with sex, betrayal and murder. What more could a woman reader want?

If you're really ready to experience an erotic story that will have you gasping, this is the story for you!




We all have a breaking point. What will you do when you've reached yours?

New Home Owners Wylie,Texas



I was driving home from my daughter’s house in Wylie this morning and saw a most disturbing site. A crew was preparing to pour a house slab. I know that doesn’t sound like a momentous undertaking but, when the ambient temperature is 31 and holding, this is a BIG problem. Why, you might ask. Simple. What temperature does water freeze at? If you guessed 32, you would be correct. What is one of the leading elements to manufacture concrete? Not cement, concrete. Cement is only another ingredient. Kind of like a Storm Drain is not part of the Sewer system. Okay, let’s move on. Water. It takes water to prepare a proper concrete mix.



If you’ve never built a house, been in construction or know anything about how a home is put together, remember this, if the foundation is bad, I don’t care how much you spend on the home, it’s going to turn to crap! The slab these clowns poured today is going to freeze tonight. That’s right FREEZE! You might ask, what’s the big deal? It’s this. The integrity of the mix has been compromised and will not achieve its designed strength which means, when the framers go in to secure the walls, the base for the house will not be sound enough for the entire unit and in time, the house will literally fall apart.



How can a person protect themselves from buying a scrap heap? Easy. Ask the seller for the test reports for the concrete. If they can’t produce them, find out when the slab was poured.  It takes thirty to forty-five days to complete a house nowadays. If they can’t answer any of your questions about the first two, hopefully they can tell you when the home was completed. Do a timeline then check the weather records for temperature information. You’ll be better informed.



Now, if you’ve already bought the lot and the construction has begun, make damn sure they aren’t pouring the slab in inclement weather and if they are, they damn well better cover it up with plastic so the concrete will properly hydrate and cure.



So, if you’re planning on buying a new home in Wylie, Texas, you have been warned. Oh, the subdivision is located off County Line Road about three miles NE of downtown.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment and I'll respond post-haste.
