This is a project I’ve been working on for a number of years now, and it’s finally come to fruition! My very first novel:
The USS Gerald Ford, a modern-day nuclear-powered aircraft carrier is hosting the family and friends of crew members at the end of a long deployment when they are asked to test a new defensive system for DARPA with help from their British and Japanese allies. After a mysterious accident during the test, the entire battlegroup finds itself at Pearl Harbor on December 6, 1941. The fleet is hopelessly outnumbered, but they do still have some modern technology at their fingertips to help even the odds. The captain has only hours to decide whether or not to strike at the approaching Japanese fleet and change the entire course of World War II, all while trying to figure out what life will look like for the sailors and civilians in their fleet after the battle.
Clive Cussler has died. He was 88, so he hung in there and had a long life. The cause was not disclosed. He had an extremely interesting life, not only did he write some great adventure stories but he was also involved in real exploration.
Listen, I know the movie is one of the biggest bombs in history, but I still think Raise the Titanic is an entertaining movie.
Here’s another thing to worry about: “Feather Duvet Lung.” 43-year-old man in Scotland felt sick and fatigued, often experiencing breathlessness with no relief. He sought medical attention and was subsequently diagnosed with a lower respiratory tract infection. Initially, his symptoms remedied — breathing became a bit easier and he felt less tired. But a month later, his health regressed.
Looking for something to do with your family while you’re trying to avoid politics this Thanksgiving? Uno has you covered. They have come out with a new “politics-free” version of the game. Which is interesting, because I never thought of Uno as being politically charged. The new version removes the red and blue cards — which could be seen as politically charged — and introduces a new VETO card to help families everywhere keep the peace.
A Michigan retiree has lost a home over an $8.41 tax bill. He’s 83 years old, and bought the three-bedroom house in 2011 for $60,000. He converted into a rental property, and notices were sent to the property and not passed along by the renters. He actually kept paying taxes on the property until the renters left because the state had sold the house.
A couple hired a pilot to help with their gender reveal and things went all North by Northwest on them. The plan was for the pilot to fly low and dump pink water to signify that the couple’s unborn tax break is a girl. When he started dumping the water, the airplane began to stall and that he could not get it back. The stall caused the plane to lose altitude, hit the ground and roll over. Fortunately the pilot was not injured. Any landing you can walk away from, and such. Can we stop with gender reveals already? When did people become too good to take a pic with their Ultrasound?
A man on death row in Georgia got to order a last meal twice. His execution date was changed at the last minute from October 31st to November 13th after he had already been given his last meal. So he got a mulligan. His first final meal was steak, lobster, macaroni and cheese, cube steak, rice and gravy, steak and cheese sandwich, double cheeseburger, fries, side of ranch dressing, strawberry milkshake and layered cake with white icing. His do-over will be steak, lobster macaroni and cheese, chicken sandwich, chicken Caesar salad with ranch dressing, double cheeseburger, fries, red beans, strawberry milkshake, and apple juice. What would your last meal be?
A Scottish tourist is suspected to have died in a shark attack off the coast of Madagasgar. Why do they think the person died? His dismembered hand and wedding ring were found inside a shark. Authorities had previously caught another shark that they said was responsible. Matt Hooper said the bit radius was all wrong, but the mayor wouldn’t let him cut open the shark to prove it was the wrong one.
