Tattoo's & Tequila - Vince Neil

Page 56:

Growing up, I had never thought for one minute I'd end up in music--I had no idea what I wanted to be.


  1. O good one! This cover is pretty cool. Very piratey.

  2. I think that is the story of every musician! Great teaser!

  3. I've done music at a biker church and have definitely seen a lot of ink on many dudes and gals! Great cover art and quote.

  4. I love that book title and cover...and the idea of not knowing what you want to be when you grow up. True of a lot of people, I'm sure.

  5. I love the cover and title, too. Good quote, too.

  6. Sounds like and intersting book.

    Have a terrific weekend. :)

  7. Hi Freda,
    Sounds interesting. Love that book cover. Have a great day!

    Just Books

  8. LOl, how many of us knew what we wanted to be. I think I wanted to be a scientist or was it an actor? I cant r'ber :)–-week-15/

  9. I read your review and I'm sorry you didn't enjoy reading about Vince Neil like you thought you would.

  10. Hello Freda...I was trying to figure out how to contact you privately, but I couldn't find an email address anywhere. So, I thought I'd just respond to you here. I hope it's ok.

    Anyway, I'm contacting you in reference to the Friday 56 posts on my blog. I started to do them BECAUSE of Tonya and thought it was a brilliant idea. I never intended to "take over" someone's idea but to run with it as it was intended and get more people involved in the great Friday 56!

    If you look at my post, Storytime with Tonya and Friends is the very first link under the Mr. Linky:
    and that way all my readers can easily jump to her blog to see her Friday 56, and anyone else's who does the feature as well. On her blog then, she invited people to grab her button and do the Friday 56 feature too.

    I never meant any harm or meant to 'steal' anyone's idea. I was just doing what her instructions said to do: to post on my blog a line or two from page 56 and to link back to her. Which I've done. Please let me know what I'm doing that is so wrong or even rude. I swear it was not my intention to do either.

    Thank you for your time and I hope I do hear from you.
    you can email me ar rv at reneevincent dot com

    Again, thank you.

I only have until September 19th to get this book done. It's good though and I should be done in no time.

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!

#Recipe Minestrone Soup

**Recipe and photo owned by Freda's Voice.

Minestrone soup is one of my favorite soups that my mother-in-law makes, and since moving out of her home and into our own again, I need to figure out what went inside hers so I can make it myself. I'm happy to say I did get it, and the hubster says it is just like hers! That's a compliment!! So here is my rendition of my mother-in-law's soup.

1 cup Ditali pasta shells 1/2 large onion, diced 2 tbsp olive oil 1 large garlic clove, minced 2 on-the-vine tomatoes, diced 1 zucchini, diced 3 organic carrots from bunch, diced 2 celery stalks, diced 1/4 head of cabbage, sliced and diced 1 can Cannellini beans, rinsed (white kidney beans) 2 cartons of vegetable stock 1 sprig of thyme 3/4 tbsp salt 1 tsp pepper 2 bay leaves
Heat the oil in a pot on medium-low heat.  Add the onion and garlic, saute until golden. Add tomatoes, stir. Cook 2 minutes. Add zucchini, stir. Cook 1 minute. Add carrots, stir. Cook 1 minute. Add celery, stir. Cook 2 mi…

#Win Montana Family Cowboy by Linda Ford (US)

LINDA FORD grew up devouring books and making up stories in her head, often late at night when she couldn't sleep. But she hadn't planned to write. Instead, she dreamed of running an orphanage. In a way, that dream came true. She married, had four homemade children, adopted 10, and lived her dream. She lives on a small ranch in western Alberta, where she can see the mountains every day. She and her husband continue to enjoy their children and grandchildren. Linda also provides care for a paraplegic, double-amputee man. She still finds a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction in creating imaginary worlds only now she does it on paper, or rather, at the computer.
