Taking a break from social media occurred yesterday. For the first time, I did not spend my day on the computer or even writing. This was a change of pace for me. I didn't even blog which was unusual for me. Do you find yourself wishing you could take a break and stay away from the computer for a whole day? Or are they such a integral part of your life you can not stay away regardless. I know I am like you that have a lot of friends on various social sights that we try to keep in touch with daily, but sometimes you need a break.
So yesterday, Besides taking wife shopping our monthly chore, I went and visited friends and not once did I touch the computer. Getting home about midnight, I retweeted a few tweets then crawled in bed after drinking a hot totty to make me sleep better. This morning, I found my inbox overloaded but I am slowly swimming through the list. It will take me all day off was a refreshing change. Today, my computer is still acting up, this page had to be refreshed a dozen times for some reason. When it first happened I ran my virus scan and it came up clean so unless something is so well hidden it didn't pick up on it, there is no virus. Next I updated my browser to see if it was the problem but it didn't change. I am typing every few words and saving so I don't have to keep retyping the same old thing. Luckily I just saved it because it flickered and then reloaded this page! Anyone that knows what is going on leave me a comment or how to correct this leave me a comment.
Talk back, I'm listening if the computer problems will go away!

Review of the second book in the Trident Series for your reading enjoyment!
Book Review of the Trident and The Scepter second book in the Trident series by Vic Boquard.
“Trident and the Scepter” by Vic Broquard
A four star rating because I still liked it but became somewhat mundane in spots. Still a book that will hold your attention by getting your mind involved.
Jon, Darless, Alison and Mandy find themselves in another adventure where they wind up teleported to the 66th level of the Abyss where to escape, they agree to protect and save one Demon, Metarch from an assassin to escape from there and return to their plane.
In their quest to save Metarch during the meeting of the Demon Lords, Alison discovers that two characters called the Twins were actually her long lost brother and sister Twins. In a town full of thieves and other villains this meeting took place. The team has to protect the town as well from destruction along with protecting Metarch also. An epic battle ensues filled with swords, magic and protective shields in order to save the good people of the town from the invading armies and demons.
Main Characters are:
Jon Brown, the young musician in college that inherits the picture book. A very believable character that the story is told from his POV. You will find this “not very brave young man” does not know how fight with his hands but uses his brain to win battles and save his comrades. Bashful around beautiful females, he finds himself in the presence of two of them, on his travels into these other planes of existence.
Mandy Blackburn, the beautiful Ranger of Reylona, with telepathic powers but not like Jon has. An Amazon warrior that is skilled with a bow and arrow and her sword, joining her strong mental powers. She can change her shape and appearance at will becoming a Pegasus when she wants also.
Alison d’Ambrose, a beautiful young lady with blue eyes and brown hair, also user of magic as a “mage” (spell caster). She captivates Jon’s heart when they team up, the three of them to save everyone.
Darless, the beautiful half human- half demon that willingly joined the original trio that appears as a beautiful woman to everyone but has tiny wings and horns on her head in her true form.
Regardless of how you rate this book, it is one that will hold your attention as the dynamic foursome fight the forces of evil on the plane of existence they dwell upon. A very good story for all ages especially young adults that still believe in Fairy tales. Now I am off to read the final installment in the Trident Series to make a report about it next week.
