The Story Reading Ape brings us Aunty Acid back! Thanks so much!

Learn how you can better control and manage comments on your blog
You work hard to build your blog and increase social media and organic traffic from search engines.
But one symptom of your success is going to be a lot more blog comment spam and unwanted contact form messages.
As your site ranking improves, you will start to get noticed by genuine content marketers, as well as spammers.
SEO tracking software is now very sophisticated, and when it notices your site improvement, it will add it automatically to a list of potential backlink prospects.
Reputable marketers use this data to pinpoint who they can contact to improve content, backlinks and sales potential.
But spammers and scammers use these automated tools to hit hundreds or thousands of sites.
Thank you very much for sharing your humor, your smiles and your blog post! I had tons of fun, Sally! ❤
Watch out for ducks.
Three women die together in an accident and go to heaven. When they get there, St. Peter says, ‘We only have one rule here in heaven. Don’t step on the ducks!’
So they enter heaven, and sure enough, there are ducks all over the place. It is almost impossible not to step on a duck, and, although they try their best to avoid them, the first woman accidentally steps on one.
Along comes St. Peter with the ugliest man she ever saw. St Peter chains them together and says, ‘Your punishment for stepping on a duck is to spend eternity chained to this ugly man!’
The next day, the second woman steps accidentally on a duck and along comes St. Peter, who doesn’t miss a thing. With him is another extremely ugly man. He chains them together with the same admonishment as for the first woman.

Seumas Gallacher talks about the development of his character Jack Calder. An interesting and fascinating read of a very gifted author. Thank you, Master Seumas!
…ten years ago, Master Gallacher had a faint notion to ‘write that book’ we all supposedly have in us… frankly, it was never intended to roll on into more than that initial novel, THE VIOLIN MAN’S LEGACY… the Jack Calder crime thriller series now has segued into five titles on Auntie Amazon Kindle, with a sixth as Work In Progress, and with an aggregate of more than 100,000 copies downloaded to date (gazillion thanks, you wunnerful, supportive readers!)… given that stretch of time, I can look back on how the various stages of development of JackCalder’scharacter have evolved… it may be of interest to some of my fellow-scribblers as they trudge the same happy path to literary destiny…
PHASE ONE : The faint idea of a male character forms in my wee grey cells… NUTHIN more than that… a big guy, ‘coz he’s former SAS… a…
