ACCIDENTALLY POETIC is a collection of poems written from my everyday life. I called it accidentally poetic, because I kind of accidentally became a poet. My work is quite “Aussie” and I write like I talk. That is what makes my work fun to read and listen to. There are many that end with a nice little twist that I bet you never seen coming...

Isolated Matters is a suspenseful thriller centered in Pacifica, California, a coastal town mere miles from the commotion of San Francisco, yet enclosed by mountain ridges and a picturesque fog that appears daily at the most opportune moments. It is a place where people go to enjoy the beauty of isolation. This is the story of one of its residents, MJ Matters, a young woman, struggling to cope with her transition from the animated life she once knew to a paralyzed one resulting from a debilitating disease. MJ’s husband, Bernard Matters, cares for her like every husband should—nurturing her every need while attempting to engage her in happy thoughts. In his own way, MJ’s brother-in-law, Alby Matters, does what he can to offer her the comfort of a friend, visiting her often and telling her strange tales, like the one about the mysterious Gull children, which somehow eerily seem to provide her with answers to the swirl of confusion around her. As MJ searches her mind to accept the realities of her current physical state, slowly she discovers something she didn’t expect—someone or something horrifying is watching her, haunting her, coming closer and closer each day. Despite every attempt she makes, MJ in her immobile state is rendered powerless, preventing her from escaping the horrors she knows she is bound to encounter. Isolated Matters is told in three perspectives—MJ’s, Bernard’s and Alby’s—providing the reader with insurmountable proof that each of the characters’ gripping accounts are not just intertwined but bound to collide.

In spite of better-engineered vehicles and roads, traffic accidents are increasing. Why? Drivers are now better prepared and trained. Accidents are also mostly preventable if only drivers learn defensive driving and accident avoidance techniques. It teaches among other things, to be helpful, courteous, and defensive regardless of who is at fault but who has the last clear chance to avoid the accident. It’s easy to learn and to execute. Without knowledge of defensive driving and accident avoidance techniques, that person is considered half a driver. We can’t continue the carnage in the roads; it’s expensive and can result in losing health and/or life. In this book, 1001 Ways to Drive Defensively, for your safety and driving enjoyment, the ideas are sometimes repeated because driving is a repetition of the same maneuvers for any trip made. To help remember the procedures, it is presented in different ways. It is also not organized chronologically because when we are behind the wheel, things don’t happen in logical order; the situations and circumstances do dictate. The author has a bachelor’s degree in education. He has been a North American driver for almost fifty years, most of which were in Cold Alberta, Canada, where winter could last for six months. You guessed it—lots of traffic accidents. Thus, the knowledge of defensive driving was a must. In Alberta, he was a schoolteacher, operated a driving school, a driving instructor and driver examiner. Author urges safety-conscious individuals not to wait any longer; get a copy of 1001 Ways to Drive Defensively. It makes driving enjoyable, less stressful, and most of all, you’ll experience safety whenever you are behind the wheel. Don’t forget you’re protecting the most expensive thing that was created, and no amount of money can replace it. This book is suitable for all drivers. However, discretion is necessary; you might save one or two accidents in what is left of your driving days. We all have to pitch in and help make the roads safer. No government can do it alone. We must not forget that other drivers are our friends we haven’t met. Why don’t we help them and, in the process, help ourselves too? In an accident, regardless of who is at fault, we’ll still suffer the same consequences. It takes only a second or two to help versus days or months recuperating. Some drivers make this statement, “whatever I do, if other drivers make a mistake what can I do?” Drivers that have this kind of reasoning forget that to be safe, one does not only drive their vehicle, follow traffic rules, but help other driver if they make a mistake. Apply defensive driving technique if one notices a condition that can develop into vehicle conflict.
This book will make a perfect gift for anybody, for any occasion and they will be grateful and remember you for life.

After the book 2023 Abbigal Lucille Davis went on to work less on her pageant career and more on her musical career. Today Abby is twenty-eight and works in her newlymade theater in Boston along with her husband Reed Havens and two children six year old Lily and and four year Edd. When Abby was twenty-two she started The Color Yellow Foundation which helps kids with physical and mental disabilities have fun with sports and even join sport teams. Abby and her family reside in New Jersey along with three horses and two dogs. Hillary Davis eventually remarried to Simon Lugar and is a speaker for The Color Yellow Foundation. Hillary prefers to keep her age hidden but with her new husband came his twelve year old son Fisher. Hillary, Simon and Fisher all live together in Colorado with their one cat, Hugo. Hailee Rombart and Nicole stayed best friends their entire life. Hailee is thirty-three years old and has never married. She says she is too busy for that kind of lame thing. Hailee spends most of her time working on designing clothing lines or spends it in Paris which she calls, “The most beautiful city in the world.” Hailee lives in the heart of New York City with three pet turtles and one cat. Nicole Marie Davis has gone back every single year to the Arizona golfing tournament. And four years ago she got first place. Thirty-two year old Nicole has since retired from professional golfing but still plays every Sunday with her husband and two sons and daughter. Nicole met Daniel Frost when he first was a competitor and as Daniel says, “She was the most beautiful person there. I knew I loved her.” Nicole and Daniel married April 26th, 2014 and had Christopher Thomas November 30th, 2015, Suzanne Edi July 19th, 2017 and Marcus James April 11th, 2020. Eight year old Chris’s favorite pastime is playing football with his dad or riding his bike. Six year old Suzie loves to play with dolls and hang out with her friends. Marcus loves to do anything with his mom. He especialy loves to bake cookies and is an expert three year old chef. Nicole and her family reside in the same small town in Arizona Nicole grew up in. “I never have remembered that day,” Nicole says, “Maybe it is because I don’t want to remember. I am happy with my life now and I don’t need that day to make me happy. Once a month I visit my dad’s grave alone. I tell him what is happening with the kids and what’s going on in life. I usually sit in silence with him. I like to find peace by being near him. I never have brought myself back to Steve’s Golf Hut. It closed down about ten years ago, but was never torn down. I hope one day I can go back there, just not yet. I have had a few health issues since the accident but mostly minor ones, nothing life threatening. Nicole never has regained her sight. About three years ago, I was asked to do a talk for a local radio station. Here are a couple of the questions: Q. Do you still golf? A. I no longer golf professionally but I still golf all the time. Q. Did you ever go back to the place of the accident? A. No I never went back. There are too many bad memories there. Q. What is your life like now? A. My life is very hectic now, especially raising three kids under nine. I learned to adjust pretty well. Q. When you say adjust, what do you mean? A. I had to learn how to make dinner and do chores. I also learned how to figure skate, and paint, and even take photographs. It was not an easy transition for any of that. Q. If you could go back and change one thing in you life, what would it be? A. I would change the day my father died. Sometimes I wish I could go back in time. There is so much I wish I could reverse or change. I wish I had more time with my Dad or could see my mom one last time or tell Abby not to go on that bike when she was sixteen and she broke her arm. I wish I could change the past, but it’s too late. I have this saying, “Life is us. It is different and difficult. It is happy and sad. It is

In the fall of 1983 while attending the University I was driving in my first car a 1970 Toyota Corona with the radio on one morning. The radio station broadcast an air disaster with the Soviet Union. The Russian port of Vladivostok detected an American passenger jet aircraft wandering close to the USSR submarine base for the Pacific Ocean. The flight was warned to change course: did not and was shot down by a surface to air missile. October 1983. At the University in a night course for Political Science called Public Policy the professor asked us to write the standard twenty-page paper on a subject of our choice. The Iran Contra affair was in the news and the Professor helped with a comment that there would be on going problems and a difficult conclusion for the student. The paper was not finished before the student withdrew but oil came to mind and a high school friend who told his school mate forty percent of the world’s known oil supply was in Kuwait bordering Iraq next to Iran. Therefore, he was in for an adventure for the right reasons. This also started to change the course of the son's life during the fall semester in Manhattan out of West Norwalk, Ct. I ran short of food and started to look toward the military for answers in my life. I needed justice for the evil in this world, three meals a day and a paycheck. My grandfather served in the Navy as an officer during, World War II and my stepfather in the Air Force enlisted rank to second lieutenant. I was living with my father at the time of my final semester who also served in the National Guard during the Vietnam Era. I went to the local armed forces recruiter in Stamford Connecticut and began the application process for the U.S. Navy. The first series of questions were about drugs and psychiatric hospitalizations. I lied. The crew needed my birth certificate and High School diploma both they got in three days from New York City hospital and Hingham Massachusetts. Then education and technical training were discussed and jobs in the Navy. When this ended I was offered two choices for employment, the mail or Core Man. I chose medical and continued with pre-enlistment. I was further screened in a facility for physical health and ability in New Haven Ct and given an opportunity to pass the nuclear fleet exam. I failed. Then I continued with finger printing and signatures plus, drug testing and blood samples for disease detection. I passed and received directions to set off from the Norwalk Ct recruiting station. The final procedure for enlisting; you are on time or in the reserves. I made it! It was LGA to ORE in January of 1984 on American Airlines from Uncle Sam; otherwise known as LaGuardia airport in New York City to O’Hare airport in Chicago Illinois one-way paid. When we arrived in Chicago our leader was unknown that got us to a bus outside the airport to the Navy Base called Great Lakes. The trip was not really long when we got there the driver exclaimed smoke em if you got em and our entrance was tough your DRUNK! We had small duffel bags with a change in them and nothing else. Our first night we spent in our civilian clothes on something called a rack… The Navy started to issue uniforms shortly after we arrived with some very carefully selected boots. My half cut industrial shoes were first given me at 10E and were returned for 10EE with a friendly look. All of our uniforms were stenciled with our names and company numbers. We got an extensive compliment of trousers, shirts, sweaters, jackets, underwear, and outerwear, footwear, and of course the Navy Pea Coat. We were taught to fold each garment in a special way for storage in a sea bag including the Blue Jackets Manual. My service started in January of 1984 and I was to face a cold winter on Lake Michigan. The base did a great job of helping us with weather requirements. When temperatures were twenty below zero to sub twenty they would instruct us to

The book of Revelation is unlike any other book in scripture, filled with symbols and apocalyptic language. It has become a magnet for some, and confusion for others; while still others ignore it altogether. There are many today who believe and hold that the book of Revelation is not about the future, but rather the past, fulfilled with the destruction of the Jewish Temple and city of Jerusalem in 70 A.D. by the Roman armies. While many others hold that the book of Revelation is prophetic and was written for a future time beyond the judgment that fell on the Jewish nation in 70 A.D.; and continues to be debated today between these two Christian camps: the Preterists and Futurists. It is vital that the people of God are given the truth about prophetic scripture. Today it is a fact that false teachers are everywhere in the body of Christ, and have all but snuffed out the light of Christ's prophetic truth. We of the body of Christ cannot continue to sit on the sidelines and remain silent. We must, as good soldiers in Christ arise and go forth in battle to defeat our Lord's enemies wherever they may be found. As soldiers of Christ we do this with the weapons at our disposal that God gave us; the Sword of Christ, the Sword of Truth, the Holy Scriptures. Many times the question has arisen, “What difference does it make?” Our response is; a proper view of eschatology (a study of end of the age times) is important because God has revealed his truth to us and it is our responsibility to be diligent students in understanding that truth. Disregarding or minimizing any part of it is poor stewardship. It is never acceptable to say “I could be wrong, but I remain comfortable on my views, and don't want to bother with other views.” It is a fact today that someone has to be wrong and is teaching error! And it certainly is not the Holy Spirit teaching those errors of scripture in the body of Christ! Therefore, if one view is correct, the others are wrong. The failure to study this issue, and others, forces us to hold one position or another, that is one's doctrines, as a matter of tradition, rather than the Inspired Doctrine of Scripture. While a lot of people go to church, very few actually know the Bible and take Jesus Christ our Lord seriously. Secular Christianity has been watered down, especially in the area of God's Word and its meaning; resulting in great division and confusion concerning many passages seen throughout scripture. The New Testament authors did write about prophecy but a good percentage of their prophetic messages dealt with the immediate fate and future of national Israel. Thus, when they wrote prophetically they wrote primarily about Israel's last days (i.e. end of OC age) while writing prophecy about the early Church's end of the age to come for them, as we read in Hebrews: "So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many and unto them that look for him shall he appear a second time without sin unto salvation” (Heb. 9-28). The last days are different from the end times. The last days refer to the last days (age) of Old Covenant Israel; as the body of Christ was being brought in during that 40 year transition period. It was to be the last days for national Israel, but not for the New Covenant Church; its age had just begun, because of God's Grace and the Blood of Jesus Christ our Lord; brought about for the salvation of mankind. In our day, there have come many scoffers both inside and outside of the church, saying that the return of Christ is many, many years away, and others doubt or even deny his coming at all. At present, to most in the world, they do not appear to be threatened by the return of Christ despite the world's present condition in its moral standing with God. Despite the war in Afghanistan and Iraq, as well as the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, despite North Korea and Iran's nuclear stance, a world economy in a near total collapse; many in the secular media procla

Marcia’s poetry speaks of her feelings and viewpoint on life. Growing up in a small New England town she spent most of her childhood playing in the woods discovering God’s creative beauty through nature. The trees became her friends. She climbed, sat on, swung on, and fell asleep under them. The singing of birds, the rippling sound of a brook, still has a calming affect on her today. Marcia’s desire is that through her poetry people will choose to see and hear God’s free gifts that are there to help us walk and live in peace on earth!

Each dwelling had an outhouse and some had chicken coops with wire enclosures. Reared in the 1950s and 1960s by pious parents with big plans for their only daughters, the girls come of age and escape the high desert community for L.A.’s palm trees and begin lives in a wider world

When I started ten years ago to teach God’s Word to an assisted living group of elderly men and women, God led me to not use any curriculum but just to teach directly from His Word. Each week I would take a book of the bible, start from the beginning, leaning on the Holy Spirit, and outline each chapter verse by verse from the scriptures. That’s what this book is about – to help those that are hungry for His Word and to teach others or just to study for themselves. My prayer is hopefully to bring the Word alive and to help people grow in a closer relationship to the Lord.

The Pebble I am a pebble dropped into the water Spreading my ripples to all those around Each little wave bringing hope to the needy Easing their worries bringing smiles not a frown Spreading and rippling to far distant boundaries Drawing in help with its tidal display And they too will drop pebbles creating more ripples Lending a hand to the needy as they go day to day The lesson from this is to help one another And don’t be afraid to spread yourself around And be like the pebble causing all of those ripples As those that are dormant are the ones on the ground I hope my poems were like the pebble and caused ripples of peace and joy in your life as you turned each page.

"Korea! This was our turn-our generation's war.".... "The Korean War has been called the 'Forgotten War.' ... For some the war was all too real"... "The First Marine Brigade was heading out into the Pacific once again...We had watched eastern Europe and China fall to the communists. Now the call had come for help from South Korea"... "again our country was going to the aid of its allies." "If the Corps had wanted Marines to have wives they would have been issued."? "Before we married, he told me that the USMC was first in his life."..."The first job for their wives was, as always, to keep the home front going."... "---our job was to care for the children and keep the home running smoothly. There was no whining or 'poor me' attitude. Those feelings better describe a later generation and a later war." (Clearly the fem-inist movement belonged to that later generation.) "I was very young-only 18 in July when we married in 1944."... "Jim and I had gotten married when1was nineteen, and he was twenty-two.”... "It was certainly difficult being newly-weds and preparing for war at the same time... "Bill left with the Fifth Marines when the baby was seven weeks old."... "Boots Hansen had a brand new daughter born July 10in the evening just hours before the new father, Dean Hansen' shipped out with the 1at Marine Brigade to Korea" ... "at the time their son was born Marge did not know whether Jim was dead or alive." "They were living on a Pfc's pay and broke. They didn't have enough money for a car." Another was "the young wife of a Pfc, dead broke and seven months pregnant." The officers' wives fared little better. “... we were still making uniform payments, too. Fortunately, Sully was able to cancel the order for his sword... or I'd have been stuck with ... payment son that useless piece of gear, too." "There was still a housing shortage." There was little construction during the war. "a lot of rent properties were ramshackle and inadequate, but hard to find at that." ... "quarters consisted of half a Quonset, furnished,.." Homoja "consisted of two very small bedrooms, one bathroom, shower only. The living room extended into a tiny kitchen. We had an ice box and an oil-burning space heater"...

"It was a terrible, traumatic time for both of us."... "Well, 1needn't tell you that the war situation is really grim."..."Of course, I too am very worried and scared stiff ... 'Don't worry about me. I'll be okay."..."My heart pounds for minutes each time the doorbell rings."... "1 did receive the dreaded telegram January 30 when Bob was wounded again"... "When the telegram came our five year old daughter was crying with me... she said, "Momma, what is wounded? She didn't know why we were crying."... Out of his battalion of 900 men only 300 came thru" ... "Wallace Jordan Reid was killed in action August 8, 1950."
