Where Have I Heard That Before? by Tim Smith

The nominations for the Academy Awards were recently announced, along with the requisite number of surprises. People have been quoting lines from movies for years, and many make their way into pop culture, as well as trivia nights in sports bars. As a change of pace, I thought it would be fun to test your knowledge about which movie these lines of dialogue came from. Some are obvious, others not so…

Juror Number Ten by Caroline Taylor

Juror Number Ten by Caroline Taylor is my second book by the author. I absolutely like her storytelling style, a reason I came back for her next.

There are many good and interesting characters in the story, including the murder accused Nona, Cody and the prosecutor Gordon, to name a few. Then there's the main protagonist Sophia, who just got herself somehow caught in a web she never imagined. They say it gets worse before it gets better and that's probably what happened to Sophie,…

Today's Meditation

Today's meditational verses:
Colossians 3:9-10 KJV, 9 Lie not one to another, seeing that ye have put off the old man with his deeds;
10 And have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him:
Be truthful about everything.The truth will…

The Soundtrack of Your Life by Tim Smith

Do you have a time machine that can take you back to when things may have been simpler, or when you were happier? Maybe a vacation with someone special, or enjoying a once-in-a-lifetime experience? The answer is yes, we all possess such a device. It’s called memory, and do you know what can magically kickstart that machine? Music! It has the power to bring back things we filed away in our mental scrapbooks.  


We just survived another Christmas season, and nowhere was this…

New Year's Meditation Scripture

Isaiah 43:18-19 KJV says, 18 Remember ye, not the former things, neither consider the things of old.19 Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.

Today is the beginning of a new year; let us leave the old negative behind and start afresh with a new focus on living godly.

As 2023 comes to a close....

Dear All Authors and readers alike,

     I believe and wish that we all support each other in making sure that we are buying and supporting an author just to give us a big break and better closing to the 2023.

     I will come back on here and purchase more books to support the idea, so that we can have better sales at the end of the year. How should we show that we are supportive? Show the books that we buy? I will do my best to make this an equal ideal that will…

Too Much Romance? by Tim Smith

Every year at this time, we’re bombarded by holiday-themed romance flicks on TV. Christmas and love affairs go together like cookies and hot chocolate, but some cable networks take it to the extreme. The most recent count is 116 new TV movies this year. With that many on deck, I question the originality factor. The Hallmark Channel began airing their lineup before Thanksgiving, followed by Lifetime, Ion and Netflix. I try to catch a few, but some of them threaten to push my blood sugar level…

Say What? by Tim Smith

Perhaps I’ve been doing this too long, but I recall when people spoke to each other using complete words and sentences, either verbally or written. Remember that? Now, it’s all done in a digital shorthand called acronyms. Once upon a time, we also composed notes and letters using cursive writing. Do they still teach that in school?


An acronym is a pronounceable word formed mostly (but not always) from the initial letters of a descriptive name or title. Its origin is from the…
