The calendar, and IOTD will be late tomorrow. I have some personal stuff that I have to do, and it’s unclear when I will be able to post those two.

Have a lovely evening and a beautiful tomorrow.

XOXO

Thank you very much for those that voted, I appreciated them. 🙂

As I’ve mentioned before, this story is not for me to publish or make money on, this is for my own enjoyment, and for those that also might like to read it.

Title: The hybridization of Colonel Alexandria Storm a stargate story

Author’s note’s: This has not been proofread, so all mistakes are mine.
Also this is a snippet, not a complete chapter. And I would like to say that this snippet is for my Flan Friends. Hi Ladies!! 😀

“Good Morning, Ma’am.”

She looks up to see a tall person with the lieutenant colonel rank on his uniform and the name Sheppard on his nametag. “Hello Colonel Sheppard, seems we finally meet.”

 He smiles slightly and takes a seat across from her, placing his coffee mug down on the table, “That sounds ominous.”

 She chuckles, “No not at all, you’ve got to remember though I’ve heard non-flattering things about you from Landry.” She notices him stiffen up a bit from that comment, “Oh relax, Colonel. I like to make my own informed opinions of people. I mean, really. Look at me.”

 He takes a minute to look over her, and then his eyes reach hers and he smiles, holding out his hand, “It’s John.”

 She grasps his outstretched hand, “Hi, John. I’m Alex. Nice to meet you.”

 Releasing his grip on her hand, “So, I heard Lorne slacked a bit yesterday. In giving the tour. He mentioned that while you have the ATA gene that there were a few minor issues. However after watching the door slide open before you were in close proximity, I’ll take it that’s no longer an issue?” He takes a sip of his coffee and watches her.

 “Yes the Major was kind to escort me to the infirmary and bring me here for lunch. As for slacking, well John. You were off world, who knows what you were doing.” She smirks at him, “And no. It’s no longer an issue, I did some meditation last night and I think that helped. Lots of stress you know, going from being on an alien world, to a locked down facility, and then to another galaxy.  Stresses a girl out a bit.” She laughs slightly as he nods his head in agreement with her.

 “I know some, not all, unlike Mitchell, I don’t read every report from the SGC. I’d prefer to hear it from you, and that’s what you want to share. But with that being said, if it’s going to affect our working relationship, then I expect to hear it. Understood?”

 She laughs, “Really lite colonel, I outrank you. However, I also respect the work you’ve done here. And also not like Mitchell, I did do some light reading before coming here, true I didn’t have a lot of time taking the midway route. However, I skimmed the important data that Walter highlighted for me. And John, I’m teasing about the rank. Doesn’t matter squat, until it does. Deal?” She holds her hand back out to him.

 He takes her outstretched hand and nods while saying, “Deal, Alex. And if I need you to deal with Caldwell, well. I’m sure I can think of something to repay you with.”

 ‘Repay you with? What are they talking about?’ Major Lorne walks up at the tail end of their conversation. “Sir, Ma’am.”

 “Sit down, Lorne.” John waves at a seat for him to sit down.

“Hi, Evan. Fancy meeting you here. Am I early or are you late?” She places a hand on her chest and fakes a swoon. And then her and John start laughing.

 ‘Oh yeah, she’s going to be fun.’ John watches Major Lorne try not to laugh out loud at her antics.

 

*End of snippet. Hopefully some one did enjoy!

Thankful thought for the day!

Leave a comment

I could keep it in theme with it being veteran’s day and all that… yet. No.

I want to say Thank you to my mother for her reading to me as a child, and she gave me a lifelong gift of reading. She also taught me to read and write at an early age, thank you. Why this came up today, well as you know I’m writing in the NaNoWriMo. If you’re following my blog, that should be no surprise to you. lol But today, I came in to work two hours early; an hour to prepare for my work load for the day, and an hour of peace and solitude- and coffee- to write. And woohoo! I met my average word count in that hour alone! So yes, it is true that when you give your children the gift of reading, that they also tend to become writers. Me. It’s because there are stories that I want to read that haven’t been written, so I write them. which is a good segue into another blog entry coming soon.  *cliffhanger* it’s a thing writers do. LOL 😛

Again, hope someone else is doing the thankful a day thought. It has been helping my attitude of gratefulness, and kindness.

And oooh, hey my mom is an Army wife, and an Army mom! Knew I could swing it back around to veteran’s day! lol Seriously though military wives/mom’s deserve their own day!! The stuff my mom dealt with on a daily basis. Especially when dad wasn’t around, she deserves a medal too. Love you, Mom! *It’s in print! yep I said it!*

xoxo

okay… I’m taking this with a grain of salt for now.

Received an email this morning from a colleague;  A ‘Stupidity’ Virus Has Been Discovered. My first thought was, ‘Good Joke!’ So natch I clicked on the link and started reading the article. This appears to be a real article, not a joke. However, I reserve judgement until I see the actual journal articles.

Thought I’d share this with others, enjoy and please pass it on. 😀

Veterans-Day-Background-7

Calendar day; November 11, 2014

Leave a comment

Tuesday, the 11th of November, 2014 is the 315th day in 2014 and in the 46th calendar week.
Armistice Day 2014
November 11, 2014 in the World
The Armistice Day is celebrated on November 11, 2014. It is a day to commemorate the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany for the cessation of hostilities on the West Front. The day, which overlaps with Remembrance Day, is celebrated annually. The day was specifically dedicated by King George V on 7 November 1919 as a day of remembrance for members of the armed forces who were killed during World War I.
After World War II, the name of the holiday was changed to Veterans Day in the United States and to Remembrance Day in the British Commonwealth of Nations. The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem “In Flanders Fields”. These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their brilliant red color an appropriate symbol for the blood spilled in the war.
In many parts of the world, people observe two consecutive minutes moment of silence at 11 a.m. local time as a sign of respect in the first minute for the roughly 20 million people who died in the war, and in the second minute dedicated to the living left behind. This gesture of respect was suggested by Edward George Honey in a letter to a British newspaper.

Veterans Day 2014
November 11, 2014 in the USA
Veterans Day is an annual American holiday honoring military veterans. A federal holiday, it is usually observed on November 11. However, if it occurs on a Sunday then the following Monday is designated for holiday leave, and if it occurs Saturday then eitherSaturday or Friday may be so designated.
It is also celebrated as Armistice Day or Remembrance Day in other parts of the world, falling on November 11, the anniversary of the signing of the Armistice that ended World War I. (Major hostilities of World War I were formally ended at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month of 1918 with the German signing of the Armistice.)
The holiday is commonly printed as Veteran’s Day or Veterans’ Day in calendars and advertisements. While these spellings are grammatically acceptable, the United States government has declared that the attributive (no apostrophe) rather than the possessive case is the official spelling.

Remembrance Day
November 11, 2014 in Canada
Remembrance Day (also known as Poppy Day) is a memorial day since the end of the First World War to remember the members of their armed forces who have died in the line of duty. Remembrance Day is observed on 11 November to recall the end of hostilities of World War I on that date in 1918. Hostilities formally ended “at the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month”.
In 1931, the federal parliament adopted an act to amend the Armistice Day Act, providing that the day should be observed on 11 November and that the day should be known as Remembrance Day. The federal department of Veterans Affairs Canada states that the date is of “remembrance for the men and women who have served, and continue to serve our country during times of war, conflict and peace”; specifically, the First and Second World Wars, the Korean War, and all conflicts since then in which members of the Canadian Forces have participated.
The red remembrance poppy has become a familiar emblem of Remembrance Day due to the poem In Flanders Fields. These poppies bloomed across some of the worst battlefields of Flanders in World War I, their brilliant red colour became a symbol for the blood spilled in the war.

Diwali: Festival of Lights
November 11, 2014 in the World
Deepawali or Diwali is certainly the biggest and the brightest of all Hindu festivals. It’s the festival of lights (deep = light and avali = a row i.e., a row of lights) that’s marked by four days of celebration, which literally illumines the country with its brilliance, and dazzles all with its joy. Each of the four days in the festival of Diwali is separated by a different tradition, but what remains true and constant is the celebration of life, its enjoyment and goodness.
The festival spiritually signifies the victory of light over darkness, knowledge over ignorance, good over evil, and hope over despair. The festival preparations and rituals typically extend over a five day period, but the main festival night of Diwali coincides with the darkest, new moon night of the Hindu Lunisolar month Kartika. In the Gregorian calendar, Diwali night falls between mid-October and mid-November.

Singles Day 2014
November 11, 2014 in China
Singles Day, One’s Day or Guang Gun Jie is a Chinese pop culture holiday held on November 11, 2014 for people who are living the single life. For breakfast on Singles’ Day, singles often eat four Youtiao (deep-fried dough sticks) representing the four “ones” in “11.11” and one Baozi (steamed stuffed bun) representing the middle dot. The main way to celebrate Singles’ Day is to have dinner with your single friends, but it’s important that each person pay their own way to show their independence. Some send short messages or e-mails to their single friends to deliver their best wishes.
Not every single is happy on this day. They may tease themselves for being still single. Some prefer to watch movies in a theatre. Some schools of a university would put forward a special program to gather singles together for celebration. In recent years, there has been more social attention to this holiday. For example, Taobaoshangcheng gives a up to 70% discount on this day. There are many activities on the Internet to help singles find a mate.
Some singles also choose to say goodbye to their single lives on this day: many attend ‘blind date’ parties and many people choose to marry on this day. In addition to meaning ‘single,’ the four ‘ones’ of the date can also mean ‘only one’ as in ‘the only one for me.’ Some people will use this date and this meaning to tell their special someone that they are the only ‘one’ in their heart.
