Smorgasbord Blog Magazine Weekly Round Up – 24th – 30th May 2020 – ABBA, Jelly Beans, San Francisco, Resilience and Laughter

A Sally Cronin masterpiece

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

Welcome to the weekly round up of posts on Smorgasbord that you might have missed during the week.

I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying any slight lifting of restrictions. I notice a couple of people missing from social media this week and hope they are okay and I will follow up with them offline if I can. It has been a drastic change to our normal routine and so very much more difficult for those with children or who are separated from their families and close friends.

Everything here is becoming the new norm… nothing new to report except for the new book marketing series starting Monday.

There are over 150 authors in the Cafe and Bookstore and I wanted to keep it to key pieces of information such as buying links, recent review, website and covers. However, I know that readers also like to know more about…

Smorgasbord Laughter Lines Extra – And Another Open Mic Night with author Daniel Kemp

I’m on Sally’ Cronin’s blog again spreading a bit of joy and laughter.

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

Author Daniel Kemp keeps us entertained daily on Facebook with his witty jokes and funny images.. by popular request he has agreed to do another open mic night for us here today…

And a joke or two….

Yesterday Paddy Murphy and his wife, a middle-aged couple, went for a stroll in Phoenix Park, in Dublin. They sat down on a bench to rest. After a few minutes, they overheard voices coming from a secluded spot behind the bushes & Mrs. Murphy realised that a young man was about to propose.

Not wanting to appear to be eavesdropping at such an intimate moment, she nudged her husband & whispered, “Go on, Paddy, whistle & let that young man know that someone can hear him.”

Murphy stammered, “Wh. .wh .whistle?. .. Wh.wh.why should I whistle? . . . Sure, nobody whistled to warn me !!” ….

Be careful what you say in…

A Covenant Of Spies

The Fourth Book in The Lies and Consequences Series

#Murder #Mystery #Suspense

 

An erudite, complex tale, that is so well developed, that Kemp quite seriously, makes me wonder if he really does know something that the rest of us can only imagine.

Endless

Endless

Give me something of what I need
Give me a reason to stay awake
Give me the love that I gave to you
Give me rage till my body does ache

Show me the scars and tell me why
Show me the memory of that pain
Show me the love that you gave
Show me the feeling when that man was slain

Ask me if it’s true what I have told you
Ask me how many times I told you a lie
Ask me if I knew the difference
Ask me if what I told you I would now deny

Tell me why you are so angry
Tell me why you never believed
Tell me why you never left him
Tell me why you were so easily deceived

When did you lose your faith
When did you first feel lost
When did you first feel alone
When did you draw a line at the cost

Why was it we met too late
Why was it we could never be
Why was it we were left behind
Why was it you could never see?

There is no morality to be found in evil.
But to recognise that which is truly evil
One must forget the rules of morality.

This is a gritty, down and dirty tale that will SHOCK and keep you guessing all the way through to the end.

Achievements

Some would say—don’t strive for what cannot be achieved. But how do you know what can be achieved without trying?
Nor is it correct to say—Be happy with what you’ve got.
Should happiness depend on inferiority?

 
No, to my way of thinking expectations should align with ability. Therefore if one increases the ability to achieve higher goals by determination and perseverance, higher achievements will be the norm.

Smorgasbord Laughter Lines Extra – Another Open Mic Night with author Daniel Kemp

Another slice of laughter generously put together and shared by Sally Cronin on Smorgasbord Laughter Lines.

Smorgasbord Blog Magazine

Author Daniel Kempkeeps us entertained daily on Facebook with his witty jokes and funny images.. by popular request he has agreed to do another open mic night for us here today…

and a joke to round off the performance..

There were four University students taking chemistry and all of them had an A so far.

These four friends were so confident that the weekend before finals, they decided to visit some friends and have a big party.

They had a great time but, after all the hearty partying, they slept all day Sunday and didn’t make it back to school until early Monday morning.

Rather than taking the final then, they decided that after the final they would explain to their professor why they missed it.

They said that they visited friends but on the way back they had a flat tyre. As a result, they missed the final.
