Writers are always talking about their WIP — or work in progress.  At my “real job” I frequently have to ask executives and tech guys to “spell out” acronyms.  I’m drowning in alphabet soup!

So, I just now laughed when I thought to myself that my WIP keeps getting pushed aside by my LIP, or my life in progress!

Maybe I’m the only one who sees the humor in that… but since they seem to think I’m “giving them lip” (mouthing off) when I ask for clarity or correction…  Yeah, okay… I kill me.  (Insert eye roll.)

Great evil characters, a very satisfying ending. #RBRT – Hi all: Today I review another book by an author I discovered not long ago and loved. Doctor Perry by Kirsten McKenzie Under the Hippocratic Oath, a doctor swears to remember that warmth, sympathy, and understanding may outweigh the surgeon’s knife or the chemist’s drug.

1-Here is ‘Big Alice’, the number one furnace. You can see her skid cars for feeding. Note the guard tower on the right.

Howdy folks, my name is Ichabod Temperance. I live in Birmingham, Alabama, USA. B’ham is an old steel town. One of the primary ingredients of steel is iron. There is a rich seam of iron ore here. Separating the iron from the extraneous material requires a lot of heat. A tremendous blast furnace is built here for that purpose. Sloss Furnace was in operation from 1881 until 1972. As a lifelong Birminghamster, I am old enough to remember seeing it in operation as my family drove by on the viaduct that runs right along the site.
