Website redesign

It’s been cool and raining down in Miami lately. I swear I’m not trying to rub it in for people going through the latest episode of our beloved series Snowmageddon!

So I’ve spent the day jazzing up the website. I’m hoping it’s faster, spiffier, and streamlined. What do you think?

In the process, I removed WordPress’s own e-mail sign-up/notification system, mostly because I won’t blog as much in the future. So if you’re one of the 2,000 people following me this way, I suggest instead signing up to my newsletter.

It’s easy, just follow this link (or the icon to your right) and enter your e-mail address. You gain access to one of my books for free at the same time for your trouble. I would offer beer and chips too but you’ll have to settle for the virtual equivalent :-)

What’s your verdict?

Hi everyone and in case I haven’t told you already, Happy New Year!

It’s been an exciting January so far. You have been thousands to download my Rogan Bricks novels and the response has been simply amazing. I’m in the early stages of writing a new one but don’t tell anyone, it’s our little secret ;-)

What did you think? If you enjoyed these books, I would LOVE if you could leave a review on the books, just write a few words to get others amped up as well. Here are the links:

A Father put his 3 year old daughter to bed, told her a story and listened to her prayers which ended by saying, “God bless Mommy, God bless Daddy, God bless Grandma and good-bye Grandpa.”

The father asked, ‘Why did you say good-bye Grandpa?’

The little girl said, “I don’t know daddy, it just seemed like the thing to do.”

The next day grandpa died.

The father thought it was a strange coincidence.

A few months later the father put the girl to bed and listened to her prayers which went like this, “God bless Mommy, God Bless Daddy and good-bye Grandma.”

The next day the grandmother died.

“Holy crap” thought the father, “this kid is in contact with the other side.”

Several weeks later when the girl was going to bed the dad heard her say, “God bless Mommy and good-bye Daddy.”

He practically went into shock. He couldn’t sleep all night and got up at the crack of dawn to go to his office. He was nervous as a cat all day, had lunch and watched the clock. He figured if he could get by until midnight he would be okay.

He felt safe in the office, so instead of going home at the end of the day he stayed there, drinking coffee, looking at his watch and jumping at every sound. Finally midnight arrived; he breathed a sigh of relief and went home.

When he got home his wife said, “I’ve never seen you work so late. What’s the matter?”

He said, “I don’t want to talk about it, I’ve just spent the worst day of my life.”

She said, “You think you had a bad day, you’ll never believe what happened to me. This morning my boss died in the middle of a meeting!”

Two guys are walking when they come across a dog on the sidewalk, licking his balls.

One guys says, “I wish I could do that.”

The other guy says, “You better pet him first to make sure he’s friendly.”

A professor is sent to darkest Africa to live with a primitive tribe. He spends years with them, teaching them reading, writing, maths and science. One day the wife of the tribe’s chief gives birth to a white child.

The tribe is shocked, and the chief pulls the professor aside and says, “Look here! You’re the only white man we’ve ever seen and this woman gives birth to a white child. It doesn’t take a genius to figure out what happened!”

The professor replied, “No, Chief. You’re mistaken. What you have here is a natural occurrence, what we in the civilized world call an albino! Look at that field over there. All of the sheep are white except for one black one. Nature does this on occasion.”

The chief was silent for a moment, then said, “Tell you what. You don’t say anything more about that sheep and I won’t say anything more about that white child.”

My parents decided the key to a successful marriage is going out to a fancy restaurant twice a week.

My dad goes out Mondays and my mom goes out Fridays.

Paddy had been drinking at his local Dublin pub all day and most of the night celebrating Ireland’s football victory. Mick, the bartender, says “You’ll not be drinking any more tonight, Paddy.”

Paddy replies, “OK Mick, I’ll be on me way then.”

Paddy spins around on his stool and steps off. He falls flat on his face. “Shoite” he says and pulls himself up by the stool and dusts himself off. He takes a step towards the door and falls flat on his face. “Shoite, Shoite!”

He looks to the doorway and thinks to himself that if he can just get to the door and some fresh air he’ll be fine. He belly crawls to the door and shimmies up to the door frame. He sticks his head outside and takes a deep breath of fresh air, feels much better and takes a step out onto the sidewalk. He falls flat on his face. “Bi’Jesus… I’m tanked,” he says.

He can see his house just a few doors down, and crawls to the door and shimmies up the door frame, opens the door and shimmies inside. He takes a look up the stairs and says “No way!”

He crawls up the stairs to his bedroom door and says, “If i can just make it to me bed.” He takes a step into the room and falls flat on his face. He says, “To hell with it” and falls into bed.

The next morning, his wife, Jess, comes into the room carrying a cup of coffee and says, “Get up Paddy. Did you have a bit to drink last night?”

Paddy says, “I did Jess. I was tanked’ pissed. But how’d you know?”

“Mick called. You left y’wheelchair at the pub.”

My wife has really dry skin so I asked my doctor what I could do about it.

He said, “Give her a milk bath.”

I said, “Pasteurized?”

The doctor replied, “No, just up to her knees will do.”

A Rabbi and a Priest were having a picnic on a really hot summer day and wanted to dip in the river to cool off. They had not thought to bring bathing suits, so decided to skinny dip instead.

The river was flowing rapidly and both clergy were washed a short distance downstream before getting out. After climbing out of the river they had just started to make a run for it to get to their clothes, when many members of their congregation came into view.

The Priest covered his privates with his hands and put on a burst of speed, but the Rabbi covered his face instead.

“What are you doing?” the Priest asked.

“I don’t know about you,” the Rabbi answered, “but my congregants recognize me by my face.”

Ready for the Counterblow?

CounterblowI didn’t think I’d manage to do it but I did it. Counterblow has finally been published. You read that right, Rogan Bricks is BACK for a new adventure. This might be the dumbest idea in history to release so close to Christmas but I couldn’t wait any longer.

And for having waited so patiently, the Kindle version is F-R-E-E. Grab it quickly because on the evening of January 1 the price goes up.

What I would LOVE for you to do is to leave a review if you enjoy it. It would really make my Christmas!

So snag your copy by clicking here, have fun reading, please consider leaving a sweet review afterwards, and stay safe this holiday season :-)

Eggnog

‘Tis the season!

Experiments From The Bar

Yesterday, we talked a little bit about the history of eggnog, as well as the ingredients and associated debates with how to make a quality eggnog.  Whether you’re a British brandy purist, a colonial rum lover, or a bourbon boasting American, eggnog is wonderful treat, especially this time of year.  So, time to gather up some ingredients and whip up some of this rich and creamy beverage, either in a punch bowl or a mug for yourself.
