Life With Baby Doll: The Holiday Gift 2014

WARNING:  The links contained within this post will take you to sites with content for mature readers only.  However, this post is suitable for a PG audience. 

Andrew and John Website (225x338)
For the last twenty-three holiday seasons, Baby Doll has searched for arrangements of O Holy Night which he believes will suit my musical tastes.  The hymn is one of my favorite songs, even though it is a traditional Christmas composition. The words share messages of hope, love, and peace.  Those concepts can be understood by anyone regardless of their religious beliefs, or absence thereof.
In December, 1991, John and I shared our first Christmas together.  He gave me a cassette tape with a melody of holiday songs.  O Holy Night was among the tracks.  I still have that treasured gift.  Another is my partner’s words, two decades old, which live in my heart.
“Andrew, you’re my heart, my home, my Thanksgiving, and my Christmas.  When I was ranting at the table in the student union, asking you all those questions trying to get you to smile,  I remember the first question that you finally answered was telling me that one of your favorite holiday songs was O Holy Night.”

“The music is nice…but your love is the best holiday gift of all,” I replied.
John gave a young suicidal man hope, love, and peace.  That story can be read at:  The Holiday Gift.  Now, at forty-one John’s love is still the best holiday gift of all.
This year, Baby Doll shared Home Free’s rendition of O Holy Night.  The group is a country a cappella band, and the Season 4 winners of NBC’s The Sing-Off.


 


John and I would like to wish all of you Happy Holidays.  May you feel hope, love, and peace not only now, but throughout the new year.
The Life With Baby Doll series is a free weekly MM romance read on my Website which shares my relationship with John Jericho.

I enjoy hearing from all of my readers, and look forward to your e-mails. Remember Love is Love…Period.

Wednesday's Words for December 17, 2014

How are you handling the pre-Christmas hype this year? Are you tired of it yet? Wishing that Christmas was in the past, already?

To me, that is the sad reality produced by the glut of advertising foisted upon us this time of year. Every business that you can think of—and even some that you never would—all seem to be having Christmas sales, and are begging for your hard earned cash.

I can only shake my head as I watch commercial after commercial, the announcers/actors feverishly pitching everything under the damn sun—and funeral plots too, so I guess you can include everything under the damn ground, as well.

Really? Yes, I kid you not. Take advantage of XYZ Cemetery’s special Christmas sale! Act now, and we’ll throw in a plot for one offspring of your choice at 50% off! Okay, it wasn’t quite that ghoulish, but you get the idea. Please, you want to scream, make it stop!!

If you’re wondering if there’s anything we can do to counter this assault on our psyches, and to get back the joy—the real true joy of Christmas, I have good news for you. The answer is yes!

The first thing you need to do is to turn down the commercials. If you have a PVR I strongly suggest recording some of the programs you watch, and then fast-forward past those annoying spots. Or, better yet, turn off the television altogether. Have a family game night, or two. Listen to music. Everything in life is a choice, isn’t it? So choose not to allow yourself to be inundated with the horrible hype of the season.

Now, you want to get some of that wonderful feel-good Christmas spirit in your heart? There’s an easy and inexpensive way to do that. Several ways, in fact, and I’m happy to list some of them for you here.

You can, as I said, turn off that television and have family time. Or, if you need to watch the tube, choose something you all can watch together. Make a night of it with snacks, and beverages, and use the commercial time to talk about what you’re watching.

The other thing you can do that I absolutely guarantee will fill you with the holiday spirit is to give something to someone else.

Every community has toy drives and food drives at this time of year. Here in Canada, there in the United States, overseas—that is one thing that is common to all of our nations. So give.

You don’t have to give a lot. Here in North America, dollar stores abound. Some toys maybe are too poorly made for you to consider as good gifts, but every dollar store has coloring books and crayons, balls, card games, dolls, barrettes and bracelets and ear buds and calculators—all for a dollar or two. They have scarves and mittens and hats, too, if you’re in a chilly part of the country.

They also have cans of soup, 3 for $1. Or you can go to your local grocery store and buy a few tins of food. Tuna is good, as are vegetables, soups, and pasta. You could purchase jams, and honey and cheese spread. Peanut butter is a good bet as well, because it is high in protein. You can get jars of baby food, boxes of pabulum, or even boxes of regular cereal.

Maybe you can only spend $5. But that $5 can go a long way, especially if everyone you can think of gave $5. Can you imagine? I’ve said it before and I will say it now, and likely again at some point in the future. If everyone who shopped at your grocery store bought 1 thing for the food bank, your local food bank would overflow!

You don’t have any money? Then do a good turn for someone. Shovel a driveway, help carry a bag, hold a door open. Life is filled with opportunities great and small for you to do good. All you have to do is take your eyes off yourself and put them on someone else.

Take your eyes off of yourself, and put them on somebody else!

If you want the Christmas spirit, and it’s missing in your life, then create it by helping someone in need. It really doesn’t take a fortune, or a wealth of time.

It really only takes a determination to make a difference, and the decision to do so.

Love,
Morgan

IMAGINARY LOVER - The Doms of Sybaris Cove 7


I'm so pleased to announce a new release!! IMAGINARY LOVER is book 7 in my The Doms of Sybaris Cove series!!

You can read more about The Doms of Sybaris Cove on my WEBSITE, but for now, here is a brief overview...

Sybaris...

Founded in 720 BC by Achaean and Troezenian settlers, Sybaris amassed great wealth thanks to its fertile land and busy port. Its inhabitants became famous among the Greeks for their hedonism, feasts, and excesses, to the extent that "sybarite" and "sybaritic" have become bywords for opulent luxury and outrageous pleasure seeking.

The Doms of Sybaris Cove...

In the Gulf of Mexico, southwest of Timbalier Island, is a tropical paradise named Sybaris Cove. The original inhabitants of this island were escaped convicts from various Caribbean islands. They came to the island seeking refuge, but instead found greed and jealousy.

William and Robert Raleigh, brothers who made their fortune running rum and engaging in other illegal activities, hid out on the island in 1945. Taking advantage of the infighting among the natives, they began buying up land and laying down roots, promising the people of the island order and peace.

Instead, they were joined by cousins Agapito and Iago Durante, who were just as corrupt as the Raleigh brothers. The island soon became the private plaything of the Raleighs and Durantes, and the natives their servants. But the natives, who had brought with them a blend of voodoo, Santeria, and dark magic, had their own way of dealing with Robert, William, Agapito, Iago, and their sons.

The sons of both families started a mail order business, making and selling floggers, paddles, and other leather fetish toys. Phoebe's Playthings grew into a multi-million dollar corporation that the Raleigh and Durante ancestors now run from the island.

However, the male ancestors of William, Robert, Agapito, and Iago share more than their thriving business and paradise. If they try to leave the island, they die.

Someone put a curse on them, and no one knows where it originated, or how to break it, but they definitely know it's real...


BLURB for IMAGINARY LOVER:

[Siren Ménage Everlasting: Erotic Consensual BDSM Ménage a Trois Romance, M/F/M, spanking, flogging, paddling, feather play, sex toys, HEA]

*Dom and IT department head Tom Raleigh has always considered cargo pilot Ivy Balloux his imaginary lover, until Tom’s sister steals Ivy’s fiancé. Convinced she’d rather eat glass than look at another Raleigh family member, Tom continues to keep his distance.

Dom and project manager Merrick Durante is so infatuated with Ivy that he has her flight days and times memorized. But the impending trial of Merrick’s brother for arson and murder has him keeping a low profile.

Ivy Balloux has worshipped Tom and Merrick from afar for years, but the convoluted history between their families has forced her to keep her distance. When the three finally get together, they work hard to overcome outside forces that would just as soon tear them apart.

When Tom’s sister plays a cruel joke on Tom and Merrick, they risk the curse on their families to leave the island and save Ivy from danger. Will they survive the curse?*

Angelic Forecast ~ #328

 
"Moon? The bases on the moon?" I ask, my brows raised in concern, and confusion.

"Our people are under attack. We are building a space squadron to protect them." My Lion Man's expression is worried but savage.

"Wait. I didn't know about Martians on the moon."

"Our science technicians grow crystalline medicines. We have a peace treaty. Had a peace treaty." Dhuroth's formidable gaze penetrates to my toes.


I breathe and try to stategize for moments. "Should I return to Mars? What is the battle situation on Earth?"

Dhuroth's brow furrows, his expression suggesting such a discussion should only be for my ears and eyes. Yet, he states, "Three out of four targets has been eliminated. Including your target."

"If I may be so bold," Oleila begins, "we have immediate access to our moon base. It is currently not under attack."

I swivel around to her. "Is your base fortified with weapons?"

"No, Sh'raka. There has been no need for weaponry. Our shield has so far proven to be impenetrable. If you wish we can transport you there. Our moon surveillance should be quite adequate to assess the current battle situation."

TO BE CONTINUED...

ANGELIC FORECAST ~

The Quickening Rise of Freedom and the Maverick Spirit of Humankind ... this week a major and magnificent turnpoint arrives as more in the worldwide population spiritually reach for freedom -- while stampeding away from the gathering evil forces of tyranny.

On the AWAKENING front, the Massive *Circus Circus* Dumbing Down of the People Reaches a New Height

However, the Aquarian Age AWAKENING superstorms over the entire planet. Out of this growing AWARENESS, chaos will rule for a time. This, because the 'unaware' among us, and the dark-side controllers, will battle against the AWAKENED ONES for Earth's future.

On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' cast forth great lightning bolts of magick, destroying the black-hearted conjuring of the Viper elite magicians. This will look like the curtain being pulled back in the "Wizard of Oz"... thus, the many exposures of traitorous and murderous acts in the coming weeks.

Also, the resurgence of real magick continues to expand as humanity reconnects with each other in powerful and loving ways -- as we learn how to connect with Mother Earth in ever deeper ways. And so it will be.

On the personal front, a which way? wacky week of possible misdirection and even treachery. Watch your backside. Watch your front-side. Watch every side.

This week is also about making merry with family and friends, or those you cherish the most. For, LOVE is in the air, and this is a wonderful time to express your true feelings.

On the career-job side, look for the 'unusual' to assist you in gaining ground. With the high level of changes occurring, now is the time to be adaptable and innovative. As well, this is an ideal time to make good business connections.

On the paranormal front, the MURDER OF MARS 

Blurb from Unknown Country: Mars was Murdered, Friday December 12, 2014 ~ Dr. John Brandenburg on the horrendous and violent past of our sister planet Mars. Was Mars murdered in an atomic holocaust millions of years ago? The evidence will horrify you.
John Brandenburg and Whitley Strieber have a long association, going back to the earliest days of study of the Mars face. Listen as John tells of findings that JPL and NASA simply will not face--and explains the science that supports his startling claims.
If John is right--and the evidence is very powerful--then we don't understand our past at all, and remain in ignorance at our peril.
Visit John at LifeOnMars.pub
~unknowncountry.com/dreamland/latest~

On the rewriting history/herstory front, HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "Ancient Egypt: Alien Artifacts Could Rewrite Egyptian History ~ By Susan Duclos ~ December 15, 2014
Fascinating and remarkable ancient artifacts have been discovered in a former home of Sir William Petrie in Jerusalem which could totally rewrite Egyptian history. These artifacts shown in the video below include relics and remains of what appear to be "aliens," but it is unclear if Petrie was hiding this knowledge or was waiting to reveal these artifacts after he had researched them more but died before his research was complete.
One object described as an "alien device of some kind," is a plate-sized "disk object"  allegedly made out of gold, has a sealed transparent top and outside there are mysterious symbols that do not appear to be Egyptian in origin. The device is clearly technology far advanced from what the people of tht time were capable of." ~allnewspipeline.com/Ancient_Egypt_Alien_Artifacts_Discovered.php~

On the land changes front, Superstorm events, extreme high-low temperatures, flooding, more sinkholes, fireballs streak across the sky, terrible droughts continue, Volcanoes erupt bigtime, the cooling sun... BOOM EXPLOSIONS around the world... and shake, rattle, and roll, it's all in the moving tectonic plates ... the EARTHQUAKES continue.

HEADLINE-SNIPPET: "MASSIVE METEORS SIGHTINGS--LOOK AT THIS MAP-ESPECIALLY TAKE NOTE OF THE INTENSITY OVER THE U.S. ~lunarmeteoritehunters.blogspot.jp~

And, on the California front, superstorm systems will likely rage across the state periodically for the next three months. Prepare and take care.

Walk out into the Arizona night desert, let the wildlife have a good meal with the hope her death will be quick.

Or does she dare trust the mysterious stranger suddenly before her?

Handsome as sin and all in black, he emerges out of the darkness.

Sedona wonders if the stranger on a superspeed motorcycle is her savior from the brutal endtimes.

Or, is he a roving cult member of the New World Order, hunting his next blood sacrifice?

Wednesday's Words for December 10, 2014

Wow, it’s only two weeks until Christmas Eve, and there’re only three weeks left in 2014! My beloved has only two more work days left in the year, and he’s really looking forward to having three weeks off.

I gently pointed out to him just the other day, that three weeks off his day job did not equal three weeks of doing absolutely nothing. I have no objection whatsoever to his reading, lounging about, watching television and napping. But he can’t indulge in all leisure, all the time.

“But we tried that whole ‘house bitch’ experiment last year,” he said, “and I failed at it!”

Friends, y’all would have been proud of his delivery of that sentence, because he did indeed appear to be very sad and disappointed about that truth.

I again, gently, told him the reason he failed was because he’d gone into the experiment with the mistaken idea that being a house bitch meant he had to do only one chore a day.

“You mean,” he asked, eyes wide, “I have to do two?”

Ah, Mr. Ashbury missed his true calling! Not even the great Olivier could have delivered such an emotional, heart-felt performance as I witnessed right there in the front seat of my car as I drove him home from work that day.

My husband’s pending Christmas lay-off is indeed a harbinger of a not-too-distant in the future event. Yes, we are very quickly coming to that time that I’m anticipating with equal parts pleasure and dread: in just a couple of years, Mr. Ashbury will become a retired gentleman.

 Sadly, he’s looking forward to that. I say sadly because not that many years ago he loved his job. He loved what he did, and he really cared a great deal for the owner of the company, and all who worked there. He cared about the company, itself. But in 2003 the fourth-generation family owned business he’d worked at for 25 years was sold to a large, world-wide conglomerate.

It’s taken that conglomerate eleven years, but they’ve finally completely eradicated my beloved’s joy of going to work each day. He used to tease that he might never retire, and would instead “die in the saddle” as it were. Now, he can’t get out of there fast enough.

That grieves my heart more than I can say.

However, he’s more than an employee—always has been, of course. And even at the age of 62, he has dreams. Some of those dreams are of doing what he would love to do, once he retires. One thing he wants to do is to find a piece of antique farm equipment and restore it. The other thing he’d like to try might surprise you—or maybe it won’t.

He wants to write.

Don’t ask me what genre he’ll be writing, because I seriously don’t know. He has very eclectic reading tastes and he has a love of history. What he ends up penning really is anybody’s guess.

But one thing I do know is this: when that time comes, and he is no longer working at a day job for a living, he won’t need to worry about getting something part time to bring in a few dollars. He has a decent pension, and I of course, will still be writing. Good Lord willing, people will still buy the books I write, which will make our latter days more comfortable than they might otherwise have been.

But my beloved will have to shape up when it comes to working around the house. The deal I’m going to offer him is simple, and, I think, fair. On top of working on my manuscript of the moment, I’ll make the bed every day and the supper every night. But everything else that I am currently doing around the house will become his job.

And because I know him so very well, I will add this proviso to my offer: if he “accidentally” fails at the dusting, vacuuming, mopping and other cleaning chores, then I’m going to “accidentally” start burning the supper. Every. Single. Night.

It’s always good to know your spouse’s weak spot, and Mr. Ashbury’s is definitely at the supper table.

Love,
Morgan

Angelic Forecast ~ #327

 
On a round, port-like screen I see my lion man, his beloved face.

He gives me a wide smile that is only meant for me, and my heart warms like a flickering candle flame. We gaze at each for a long moment. "Dhuroth," I softly say.

"My one. My woman. My heart beats with great thumps for you."

"I so miss being with you," I croon, every atom of me alive and sizzling.


His face transforms to super serious, and I sense what is coming. "It is good you have made contact with potential allies, my woman. The battle for Earth has become terrible and ferocious. Our forces are in need of more warriors."

"My jet might be rested enough to..."

"No," Dhuroth interrupts, "your battle has been won. Now the battleground has shifted to Earth's moon."

"Moon? The bases on the moon?" I ask, my brows raised in concern, and confusion.

"Our people are under attack. We are building a space squadron to protect them." My Lion Man's expression is worried but savage.

"Wait. I didn't know about Martians on the moon."

"Our science technicians grow crystalline medicines. We have a peace treaty. Had a peace treaty." Dhuroth's formidable gaze penetrates to my toes.

ANGELIC FORECAST ~

The Phoenix Rise of the Creative Genius ... so it begins as the world spins anew. The true potential and creative power of humankind now surfaces and tsunamis around our beloved planet.

Meanwhile, the dark-side uses every diabolical trick and method available to contain and control the 'creative genius' within us ALL. Out of this full-scale, sci-fi like attack on humanity, there develops an enormous chasm between those who shine with creative brilliance, and those who have been brutally, cruelly shutdown -- their minds severely limited.

On the AWAKENING front, The torch that is the soul of humanity has been ignited and the flame will not go out.

Now, more and more of us will gain a deeper 'knowing' about the power and beauty of our souls -- far-far beyond the "Truman Show" that is this material-world prison. Thus, we will act upon our soul AWARENESS in ever larger ways. 
On the magickal, mystical front, this week the 'Mages of Ages Lost' cut the dark energetic ties that bind humankind with great whirling swipes and swings of their lightblades. Now, they are joined by the GOOD beings in the angelic realm who flash and slash with their mighty light swords. For, the Divine time is here.

As Well, at this cosmic turnpoint, the Great Backlash quickens. Every deception, every black-hearted deed perpetrated by the Viper elite, and carried out by their psycho-leader minions, now becomes an immediate karma, lashing them unmercifully. For, so it is.

On the personal front, this week is about exploring your creative side, as well as noticing the creativity of others around you. Look for ways to bring your talents together for the betterment of your immediate circle, your community -- and planet-wide, for ALL.

This is also the perfect time to pull your plans together, finalize, and proceed toward your goals. There could be some glitches this week. However, it's a greenlight 'go' overall.

Further, there could be a situation, an event, that touches your heart deeply. Feel the experience as fully as you are able. For, this is a natural HEART OPENING into the Aquarian Age.

On the paranormal front, The UFO case that will ultimately EXPOSE it ALL.

Wednesday's Words for December 3, 2014

With December comes the “holiday season”. That’s the politically correct term for it. One tries to be politically correct, but sometimes it’s a challenge. I send out Christmas cards, but not as many as in years past. The postage can be prohibitive, so it’s not an action to be taken lightly.

I try to be sensitive if I am sending a card to someone who I know happens to hate organized religion. There’re a few of them among my family and friends. So I have Santa cards, and other cards that might just say, “Season’s Greetings”. And thinking about it now, I realize how silly that really is, in a way.

Why would I need to send a Christmas card to someone who doesn’t believe in Christmas? People will answer that and say, well, you know, Morgan, it’s the polite thing to do. And it is—of course it is. I can support that statement despite the fact that no one has ever sent me a card for a single non-Christian holiday. Maybe there aren’t any cards for Hanukkah or Kwanzaa or...whatever other non-Christian holidays that in my ignorance, I’ve never heard of.

Conversely, I don’t think I have ever personally heard anyone make a fuss if I wish them Merry Christmas and they’re not Christian. Most people I know of different religions, when I say “Merry Christmas”, respond with a “thank you”, and quite often, “and the same to you”. Likely because they know that behind the words there is only a wish for good things for them in the days to come.

I was very pleasantly surprised last night as I was watching television—there were some commercials where the advertisers actually said, “Merry Christmas”. Good. Let’s not go all silly about what we call the holiday. Let’s call it what it is, and then move on.

My favorite thing about this time of year is giving. I love to give—sometimes much to my beloved’s dismay. I was showing him the budget for Christmas that I’d worked out on Monday, breaking down what was going to be spent and where. For a little while he niggled, as he invariably does. To the tune of twenty dollars here, twenty-five dollars there. Yes, yes, I believe in being frugal and I am most of the year. For the most part.

Mostly.

But there comes a point where frugality ends and miserliness begins, and my beloved was standing on the far side of that line and looking like he might want to settle in for a bit.

As has been mentioned before in these words of mine, one of us is generous and one of us is not. Compromise is key to the health of any marriage—even at Christmas. We do take turns “winning” our way. So I told my beloved he was perfectly free to disagree with me about the Christmas list, as long as he realized that in the end, we were going to do things my way.

That came as no surprise to him, and he even laughed.

There are other gifts, of course, that he doesn’t argue over. There are charitable donations to be made, and there are gifts related to my career—tokens of appreciation to my professional colleagues and associates.

I am reminded that it wasn’t so long ago that my beloved’s treasured personal philosophy won the day just about every year. He used to tell everyone he shopped at the dollar store. Twenty relatives, twenty dollars, twenty gifts. When you’re trying to raise a family and there are sisters and brothers, aunts and uncles, and cousins by the dozens that is absolutely the way to go.

But we are now “dinks”. Do you remember that acronym from the eighties? It stands for “double income, no kids”. For us, in my opinion, the meaning of that term is clear.

Now that we are dinks, we don’t need to be dinks about giving gifts at Christmas.

Love,
Morgan

Angelic Forecast ~ #326


"My apologies, Sh'raka. It is a way we heal each other. If our body system has what another needs, there is a transference of energy."

"How fascinating," I murmur, still somewhat uncertain, even though, I feel no ill affects. 

Yet, there is nothing to do but continue, I reason, fully aware I am a stranger in a strange land.


***

Hungrier than I realized, I greedily eat the round, gently puffed bread. "Marvelous," I murmur, before sinking my teeth into another one

"We have made visual contact with your Dhuroth," a man announced upon entering the open-air like eating space.

I jump up instantly, my body tingly with anticipation. With a knowing smile on his face, the man escorts me to a small while room filled with a luminescence that is crystalline. On a round, port-like screen I see my lion man, his beloved face.

He gives me a wide smile that is only meant for me, and my heart warms like a flickering candle flame. We gaze at each for a long moment. "Dhuroth," I softly say.

"My one. My woman. My heart beats with great thumps for you."

"I so miss being with you," I croon, every atom of me alive and sizzling.

TO BE CONTINUED...

BLURB-SNIPPET: From Coast To Coast am ~ UFOs & Bigfoot ~ Date: 11-28-14 ~ Host: Connie Willis ~ Guests: Stan Gordon
In the first half of the program, guest host Connie Willis welcomed paranormal investigator and researcher Stan Gordon for a discussion on the wave of UFO and Bigfoot sightings which occurred in Pennsylvania in the 1970's. He recalled how, at the start of 1973, witnesses began reporting a number of strange UFO events which went beyond merely sightings of enigmatic lights in the sky. According to Gordon, there were not only many reports of solid, structured craft, but also UFOs chasing cars as well as objects landing on the ground. By the Summer, he said, the situation became even more bizarre as "we had the biggest outbreak of Bigfoot sightings ever recorded" which lasted into 1974. ~coasttocoastam.com/show/2014/11/28~

A Thanksgiving Season of Love 2014

WARNING:  The links contained within this post will take you to sites with content for mature readers only.  However, this post is suitable for a PG audience.

Since turning forty in 2013 , I’ve have adopted the minimalist lifestyle.  Simplicity is the key to life.  What the heart experiences trumps materialism. I ask myself  what is important? Love, peace, gratitude, and harmony are ideals which come to mind.  We are all one.  
In addition to being a ManLove erotic romance author, I am a LGBTQ rights activist, humanitarian, and freelance journalist/photographer.   I support a variety of social and humanitarian programs.  Often, I am asked my political and moral viewpoints.  I am not affiliated with any political party.  My humanity supports the disabled,  homeless, incarcerated, poor, veterans, and women and children.  
All holidays, including Thanksgiving, have been commercialized.  A trip to any retail establishment lures customers with items believed to provide happy holidays. Don’t get me wrong, I do purchase holiday items.  My family will have a Thanksgiving dinner, but many will not.  The Huffington Post published an articleOctober 23rd, on the rise of  poverty in America.  No one is immune. With one in seven hungry, it becomes a Thanksgiving just to have anything to eat.  

This year marks the twenty-third Thanksgiving with the man I love. We have a family—two teenagers we love dearly.  John and I have much to be thankful for.  As families and friends come together today, I would hope they remember what is really important.  Love one another.  A Thanksgiving season of love is the greatest gift of all.  
John and I would like to wish everyone  a Happy Thanksgiving!
