And for those who think my views are cynical, read Griftopia, by Matt Taibbi

HOS:

Hahha yeah thanks. I used my mother's maiden name on the books cause if they sucked, i didnt want to fail with my own name lol. funny that it sounds like "Road A Detour"

I always used Rainy online as a tribute to my dog who died...silly i know lol.

Writing the books are fun though. I want to be unpredictable...and in my Irish immigrant novel...i killed a guy but every character had issues with him. Before i decided who the killer was, my mother yelled out "I kmow who did it!" When i finished book, my mom yelled at me profusely .. "thats not.who did it!" yeah it is cause i wrote it.lol

I read a book called "Subtle art of not giving a... Well you know. Spelled that way without the U. Was I thought a great book. Very entertaining and makes you think about what you really allow yourself to get worked over about and why. Author I believe is Mark Monsoon. if you're at all familiar with him.

That sounds AWESOME! I'm obviously not OTR yet but most recently I've been reading books about not sweating the small stuff and being more positive / mindful and being more open to taking chances and going after what you really want. I like learning new "self-help" strategies! Always moving forward.

I also like to write a lot (I guess you'd call them fan fics) - but they're rated R+ and I only write them for myself lol

OTR:

Over The Road

OTR driving normally means you'll be hauling freight to various customers throughout your company's hauling region. It often entails being gone from home for two to three weeks at a time.

Check out this one Pete: "Churchill's History Of Ungentlemanly Warfare" by Giles Milton. WW2 military history non-fiction.

Packrat, thanks, I definitely will. Have you read “No High Ground,” by Fletcher Knebel and Charles W. Bailey? Awesome account of the development of and events surrounding the dropping of the two atomic bombs. That one WAS a page-turner. One more... “A Bridge Too Far.” Also unputdownable.

I've been nibbling on Meditations by Marcus Aurelius, working on the George Washington biography by Ron Chernow, and my last completed book was the Hamilton biography, also by Chernow.

Well...since you brought it up....I have a few published. The best and most recent is Zodiac Lives, which is a thriller once compared to James Patterson and David Baldacci.

In that book, a child in 2000 has nightmares of a man trying to kill her in San Francisco. It turns out that her dreams lead investigators to undiscovered evidence from the infamous and real life Zodiac killings of the 1970s. After 20 years of dormancy, Zodiac starts killing again to discover who knows his identity.

i have other historical fiction...all involve suspense murder mysteries. One book is about the USPS and people find it funny....human heads and alligators in the mail. They are on Kindle and Audible.

if anyone's interested, i can set them for free for a few days. i might still have audiobook coupons for Zodiac Lives but they can only be used once, so if you ask please use it cause no one else can.

I keep forgetting you authored some books. I've been interested from the start. Gotta check em out

DAC:

Drive-A-Check Report

A truck drivers DAC report will contain detailed information about their job history of the last 10 years as a CDL driver (as required by the DOT).

It may also contain your criminal history, drug test results, DOT infractions and accident history. The program is strictly voluntary from a company standpoint, but most of the medium-to-large carriers will participate.

Most trucking companies use DAC reports as part of their hiring and background check process. It is extremely important that drivers verify that the information contained in it is correct, and have it fixed if it's not.

Rainy writes R+++ books too! If my math is correct R+++ = X. She posted about her "dirty stories" a couple of years back. Scour her archives, I'm sure you'll find it.

Right now I’m reading Douglas MacArthur, American Warrior.

I like writer named Steve Berry. His books incorporate history with intrigue. At the end of each of his books he tells you where historical fact is separate from fiction. Since he’s been on the Smithsonian Library Board, he knows history. All great books.

Reading a little of Proverbs each day is helpful. Especially when patience is thin.
