My 30 Seconds To Mars Fame

Twitter doesn't allow for more than 140 characters; and in this story almost 140 different characters came to my immediate aid. (bless their souls) Here, I can at least tell the story without shorting it or deleting details:
I went for my walk, this time my mp3 player was working for me; downloaded the This Is War album from my favorite band; 30 Seconds To Mars! As I was completing lap 8 around my building, I began singing "closer to the edge" song, and when it came to "NO NO NO!" verse, well, I shouted it with them, not realizing the beauty of the day and everyone had their windows open. Two or three times I sang out loud, lifting my fist into the air (cause I'm stupid that way) and shouting; "NO NO NO!". As I rounded the corner, police cars were everywhere, worried tenants searched for the odd woman screaming "NO NO NO!"
It was embarrassing.
What music does to a human....

How To Get A Free Copy of My Book "The Awakening"! (Read my blog to find out!)

For the next three weeks I will be running a contest for facebook friends only!
Every Wednsday I will post a question, the first two facebook friends to get it correct will win a free, signed copy of my book; "The Awakening".  The winners will be posted on Friday!
If you are not the winner this week keep trying!

AND, here is the twist!
 Each week the trival question has one common theme. On week four I will ask what that common theme is: The first ten people to get it correct get the 'golden ticket' to the premier party for "The Awakening" planned in Astoria, Oregon this fall.

If you are reading this on Twitter: Friend me on Facebook to enter contest!
Only facebook friends are allowed to enter.
One person per household please!

With that said; here is the trival question:
During the Industrial Revolution of the 19th Century, what invention ended child labor and what was the inventor's name?

Good luck everyone!
CB Logan!

What Valentines Day Has Been For Me....

    On February 16th, 2003, my beloved "D" died in my arms after a drive by shooting in Oak Cliff, Texas. Only a handful of people on this earth, since that day, still knows all the world knows my pain.
    Like myself, there are many women that never 'let go' of their dead. Mine has haunted me for eight years, and I silently grieve for my lost around Valentines Day...and not to mention February 16th.
    Of course I have dated, but always sabotage the relationship to 'feel' better about 'not cheating' on "D"...I even mail a V-Day card each year, addressed to him, care of: "God" and always put my return address on 'just in case' he isn't up there..... (I know it sounds silly)
    But, not this year...I plan to move forward, put away his image to the back of my memory of a distant, but painful past.
    I don't have a valentines date, nor did I get a card....but its a brand new year, brand new beginnings, and who knows; my prince charming is somewhere out there waiting on me.
    I know "D" has passed on to a better and less painful place; I know he wouldn't care if I moved onwards in my walk through this world, and I am going on even if he isn't okay with it, because the day is for the living, the night is for the dead.
So, Happy Valentines Day everyone. Cherish the love you receive, you never know if it will be taken from you in a blink of an eye, on a cold and wet February night.

My favorite poem...

The red rose whispers of passion,
And the white rose breathes of love;
Oh, the red rose is a falcon,
And the white rose is a dove.
 But I send you a cream-white rosebud,
 With a flush on its petal tips;
For the love that is purest and sweetest
Has a kiss of desire on its lips.
               --Irish poet John Boyle O'Reilly

I made the Dean's List at University for Fall 2010!

I awakened to an email informing me I made the Dean's list.
It was 9:30 in the morning, Saturday, Feb 5th. No one is I prance and stumble, covering my mouth from screaming; "I beat the fat f#%$k that got it last time and rubbed it in my face!"
So, I went to Amber's room and stared down at her...I couldn't help myself, I shouted the news and she jumped like a cat from her sleep!
Ha! I did it...I finally made the Dean's List!
