July 17, 2017: Thanks for caring about my mom
Posted by Zarek Dragon

I want to thank everyone that has asked about my mom. Since she started chemo, she has been very sick. Her treatments are three weeks apart and she has been very ill more than two weeks after each session. She spent a few days in the hospital from the reaction to the last session and Doctors and nurses have advised her that her reaction to the treatment isn't normal. Mom has decided that she would rather live than just be alive, and while I don't want to lose her period, let alone sooner than I must, I also don't like seeing her suffer like she has been.

And, as a result of dealing with all the stress, Still Another Chance and Voyagers is are on temporary hold. While I am only one of the three authors, of Voyagers, one of the other authors is dealing with his own health issues, so his stories are on hold as well.

July 15, 2017: Lots of updates and more to come.

News

Have you ever wondered what happened to the 56 men who signed the Declaration of Independence?

Five signers were captured by the British as traitors, and tortured before they died.

Twelve had their homes ransacked and burned.

Two lost their sons serving in the Revolutionary Army; another had two sons captured.

Nine of the 56 fought and died from wounds or hardships of the Revolutionary War.
They signed and they pledged their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor.

What kind of men were they?

Twenty-four were lawyers and jurists.

Eleven were merchants, nine were farmers and large plantation owners; men of means, well educated, but they signed the Declaration of Independence knowing full well that the penalty would be death if they were captured.

Carter Braxton of Virginia, a wealthy planter and trader, saw his ships swept from the seas by the British Navy. He sold his home and properties to pay his debts, and died in rags.

Thomas McKean was so hounded by the British that he was forced to move his family almost constantly.

He served in the Congress without pay, and his family was kept in hiding.

His possessions were taken from him, and poverty was his reward.

Vandals or soldiers looted the properties of Ellery, Hall, Clymer, Walton, Gwinnett, Heyward, Ruttledge, and Middleton.

At the battle of Yorktown, Thomas Nelson, Jr., noted that the British General Cornwallis had taken over the Nelson home for his headquarters.

He quietly urged General George Washington to open fire. The home was destroyed, and Nelson died bankrupt.

Francis Lewis had his home and properties destroyed. The enemy jailed his wife, and she died within a few months.

John Hart was driven from his wife's bedside as she was dying. Their 13 children fled for their lives.

His fields and his gristmill were laid to waste. For more than a year he lived in forests and caves, returning home to find his wife dead and his children vanished.

 

So, take a few minutes while enjoying your 4th of July holiday and silently thank these patriots.

It's not much to ask for the price they paid.

Remember: Freedom is never free!

I hope you will show your support by sharing this to as many people as you can.

It's time we get the word out that patriotism is NOT a sin, and the Fourth of July has more to it than beer, picnics, and baseball games.

Author Unknown.

Hosts Note: I can't vouch for the authenticity but I thought it was an interesting piece of historical info. Regardless it helps put the Fourth of July into a slightly different light. - TSL

Thanks Jeff for posting that announcement for me; I was having Internet diffigulties and couldn't access the site to post. Updates will resume tomorrow with a new chapter of The Wizard Heart by Darrin Thomas. [Update 7/03 The chapter wasn't complete and had to be re-edited.]

Scribe 1971 is almost completely revovered from a seriuos blood ailment which was nearly fatal. He is back writng again and getting better and should have chapters for us soon. Keep him in your thoughts and send some postive thoughts his way.

Our wonderful programmer Akeentia has done it again you can now sort the authors with the "Sort by first letter" feature as well as the previous "All" view - which means a LOT less scrolling if you know what author you are looking for!

Agsin thanks to those authors who posted in my absence. 

Take care,

June 30, 2017: Passing a message...
Posted by JeffsFort

Hi everyone!

Just a quick message to let you know what is going on with The Story Lover and why it has been a while since we have heard from him. I was able to catch up with him in chat earlier and he asked me to let you know that he has been a little under the weather. This is preventing him from being as active as he would like and we wanted to make sure that everyone knows that as soon as this passes, he'll be right back on top of that frightening list that he calls his posting schedule. (Seriously, I bet he goes through keyboards like candy with his workload ;)

Send him your best wishes for a speedy recovery!

*HUGZ*
