For Moving In

Seriously Reviewed said "You know? Every so often you read a story that starts a little slow on the first few pages and then.....BAM it just explodes! This was one of them for me."

Kaye's Book Review Page
on which she said The book is "short, sweet, light-hearted and just plain fun."

Vince at Philosophy of Romance said "Alice Audrey’s voice is fresh, feisty, full of surprises and always fun. The author also deals with real people having real problems and she does it in a very insightful way."

Nessa at Chrysalis Stage said "If you like sweet, fast-paced romance with a hot hero and all of the misunderstandings that two people can throw at each other, then you will love this story."

Night Owl Reviews didn't have anything nice to say about it. Hey, you can't win them all.

Brenda Talley of Romance Studio said " I recommend this book to anyone. It was a pleasure to read and I shall look for more of her work in the future. "

By Guta Bauer at Murphy's Library did it twice! Once in English and once in Portuguese. I'm assuming they both say, "Life goes on, choices need to be made and we can never let our past deny us of our future. That’s just some of the things we learn from this story. "

If you did a review of my book, let me know! I'll be glad to link to you, even if you didn't like the book.

Oasis

We were driving around in a place that tends to look like the above picture when we ran across something that looked like the picture below.

Yep. In the middle of the desert we found an oasis. Most of the water we found in the Gobi Desert was pumped up from various aquifers. Some were close enough to the surface that you could scoop it out with a bag on a long stick. Others were deep enough to require a pump. Regardless, the locals tended to draw only as much as it takes to water their livestock.


That isn’t nearly enough to water a farm. This was the only farm I saw down there. It is built around a natural spring, which they divert into the various channels of the field. Each day a different part gets watered.

This particular farm was quite substantial. They grew a wide variety of vegetables, much of which was sold to the various ger camps to be used in fine cuisine for the tourists. :)

Yet it wasn’t a mega operation. It seemed to be run by one or two families with minimal equipment. We were given a guided tour by someone who didn’t speak English while a couple of girls washed their hair in the irrigation water. There were only a couple of gers set up nearby.

It was quite a surprise to run across right after a long, hot hike in the red rocks. I only wish we could have bought something from them, a carrot of some beans or such. We probably ate some of their food that night without even knowing it.
