Just The Facts~An Update

It has been a busy time. Though we had decided to stay put in favor of James’ job, opportunities have come up that have made us reconsider. We have wanted to leave the flat lands for so long and now, after ten years here, plans are in place and we are set to move. Our destination is Hopkinsville Kentucky, a much greener place, near family, mountains and water. Everyone in the household is really excited about the upcoming move.

On the creative front, I was the presenter at the recent Writer’s of the Purple Sage meeting. The afternoon was very fun and informative for me. I think those in attendance enjoyed themselves. I certainly enjoyed giving the presentation and answering their questions. They are such a fun and outgoing group and I learned quite a bit at the business portion of the meeting, about, of all things, Bats and local geography. You never know what you will learn when you get a group of writers together!

I have received a rejection from Tor/Forge on my novel. No feedback at all, just a form rejection. The manuscript was folded in several places and had the look of having been well handled with smudges and creases throughout, so I do think they took the time to read it, maybe more than one person even. I am not letting it discourage me. It is still under consideration at another house and I have several other presses listed to try once I get the move behind me.

Our family is currently in a state of grief regarding our beloved cat Shadow. She had a long life and we have many great memories of her. She’s been with us longer than several of our kids. Watching her get sick was very painful for all and though we know she is pain free now, losing her has been a huge loss for all of us.

    It's been awhile, but I finally found time to check the Hat Lady's posts. Sorry about Tor/Forge, but it's their loss! What is with these editors? I missed the lesson at writer's club on Sunday, due to a houseful of kids and grands visiting. But the other Golden Girls tell me the presenter did a marvelous job. Of course! Lady, we don't want to lose you, but sometimes destiny calls. No hats at our meetings, what a bummer. We will haunt cyberspace waiting for you to let us know you arrived safe and sound at your new home. Meanwhile, may the force be with you, and the wind always be at your back. A star will shine on the hour of our next meeting.

    The value of this Stock appears poised for growth! This one will not

    Keep Reading!!!!


    -Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
    the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
    REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

    These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
    be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

    Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
    Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
    make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

    the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
    as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
    the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
    time to replant and develop new root systems.

    Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
    with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
    growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

    Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
    As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
    EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
    about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

    Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
    Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
    Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.


    The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little
    known Companies That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens.
    This stock will not be a Secret for long. Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right
    Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
