Curio & Relic FFL 03 – Get your Fed Log Book Now

Wednesday, July 16th, 2014

Collecting antique firearms?  Please make sure that you get a Curio & Relics FFL 03 license and you might find yourself getting some breaks on registration for firearms and waiting time.  You will need a logbook and the one that I sell is one of the best on the market.  Don’t be fooled by slightly cheaper, cruddy quality binding.  There is a rip off of my book in a black cover that I would not recommend. My log book can hold over 440 firearm entries.  It is a no frills book that quickly and accurately allows you to be compliant with Federal firearm regulations concerning Curio & Relic firearms.

 

By Federal definition you will need a bound book and this fits the bill perfectly!   Get it today! Just save your money because the hobby is addicting!

It is fun collecting curio and relics, antiques and firearms that are over 50 years old. Remember good gun safety and keep teaching your kids safe and sane handling of weapons. Thanks for listening.

Clean from the Inappropriate Library Is Now On Kindle

Friday, February 1st, 2013

Every digital fiction fan who wants some thrilling, exciting fiction can rejoice.  My book, Clean- A Tale from the Inappropriate Library, is out on Kindle.

The book can be read as a standalone from the original book, The Inappropriate Library.  The series is about the magical books from the ancient Library of Alexandria and their powers.

To paraphrase myself:

“Another installment in the Inappropriate Library series. What would happen if one of the lost books from the Library of Alexandria got into the hands of a person who had bad intentions?”

Check out the trippy cover:

 

Clean,

Clean, A Tale of the Inappropriate Library

 

“The book takes place in the 1980s before events in the first Inappropriate Library book. Dr. Jan Brighton, an LA PD coroner, has to find out who is killing off drug dealers and restore order when the city starts to panic from bizarre killings in the Latino community. Her son, Patrick, finds himself as a target from an evil supernatural entity. Destruction and death enter their lives until they figure out how to use the power of the books from the Inappropriate Library. This book is for older children and adults and deals with drug use, death, human smuggling and the occult.”

Bear with me with the formatting on the book in Kindle.  It is one of my first books and the formatting I have been told needs getting used to.   I have been told that the story is pretty good.

If you like it and want more stories, shoot me a line or post.

Remember that part of all proceeds of all my books go to research finding a cure for Rett Syndrome.  Rett affects a girl born every fifteen minutes.  Boys generally die at birth if they have the Rett gene.

Have a great weekend.  Be safe if you are at a Superbowl party.

I had posted an excerpt from the book and you can find it reprinted here:

By the way — this book has pictures in glorious black and white for the playing card examples.  Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I have stepped into the 21st Century and am working diligently in adding more multimedia (well at least pictures) to my books.  Ah, where was I?  Okay, back to the sample.

EXCERPT FROM “PRACTICAL GAMING” by Kim Isaac Greenblatt

The Coin Toss Casino

Welcome to Kim’s Coin Toss Casino.  We are starting off here so you can get an idea of when you are playing a game what elements you need to take into account.  We are starting off with the one game in my casino, namely flipping a coin. 

There are two sides to the coin-one side is heads and the other one is tails.  The way the game is played is pretty simple.  You call out loud what you think will come out when the coin is tossed in the air, caught and thrown by hand on the back of my other hand.  We will pretend to make this game interesting, since it is a casino, that you bet a dollar for each call and if you call “Heads”, and it comes up “Heads” I pay you a dollar.  If it comes up “Tails”, I pay you the dollar.

Pretty simple, yes?  Are you following me so far?  Great!

Now the odds of you getting the correct call are as follows:

Heads – 50%
Tails   – 50%

That also is reflected as 1 out of 2 for each chance.  That means that there is a one out of two chance that you will toss “Heads” and a one out of two chance that you will toss “Tails”.

That means that all things being fair and equal, with no cheating, no fixed coin, every coin toss gives you an even chance that your call will be the correct one and if you are betting a dollar that you would win $1.

Now for the purposes of this illustration I am not making any money on this in my casino.  I make my money by not having an air conditioner, having my casino in the desert and charging $100 for each glass of water.  As you might imagine, I don’t get too many customers in my casino.

Now we come to the questions and answers that drive gamers  nuts.

Here is the first set-up.  You come to one of my tables and a good looking girl elbows you and says, “Wow, I am on a streak.  I have tossed ‘Heads’ five times in a row.  I think there is no way that I can throw another ‘Heads’.  In fact, the odds are that I am going to throw a ‘Tails’.  It is due.”

Is it? 

The answer is no, the odds are still one out of two that the coin will come up heads.  It is a fifty-fifty shot and it can be that our good looking coin toss girl is just on a lucky streak.

The incorrect observation that the girl presented is called, “The Gambler’s Fallacy.”  The definition of the Gambler’s fallacy is the belief that if deviations from expected behavior are observed in repeated independent trials of some random process then these deviations are likely to be evened out by opposite deviations in the future.

That is quite a mouthful but what it is saying is that just because you have seen something happen with random events, it doesn’t mean that things will balance out while you are there watching them.

So what is the probability that you could flip two heads in a row? 

Well, you have a matrix of flips as follows:

Flip 1: H or T
Flip 2:  H or T

Combinations that result could be:

HT
TH
HH
TT

That should be a 1 out of 4 chance that you would throw two heads back to back.  The interesting thing is that the longer a streak continues, the more likely that you should go with the streak and not consider when it is ending from a math point of view.

How about in your daily life?

That is the end of the excerpt.  For more information, please check out the book and you can order it from  Amazon, Barnes and Noble and any fine bookstore within a few weeks.  Part of all sales go to research Rett Syndrome as usual.  If you want to order it directly from me, please drop me a line and we can see what we can do.

Initial buzz from my fans has been good and they like the new Forty Dollar No Limit Texas Hold’em advice that I have given them.  It is making their game more profitable and overall good business so it is a win-win situation.

I am not sure whether my next book will be on special needs or 200 No Limit Texas Hold’em because I am getting some requests for more books on cards.  What do you want to see more of?  Please drop me a line and thanks for your support!

By the way, today is my Mom’s birthday!  Happy Birthday Mom!

Practical Money Making Book

Thursday, September 18th, 2008

Shameless plug time.  My new book is out and news is making it more and more urgent that you at least think about getting a copy.  The name of the game, gang, for the next few years is to have a positive cash flow.  The way to do that is to work.  My book talks about what you should do to get a part time job, a better full time position, how to deal with being laid off, how to manage your money and of course, reminders to save!  save!  save!

 

The current estimate is that it will take around four years for us to get out of the financial mess we are in with the housing financing fiasco and for the government and companies to get something going to get business rolling back in the United States and the rest of the world.  Money will be tight for credit so you will need to be able to get out there and pay your bills, cover your rent or mortgage and save money to weather the financial storms that are ahead.

With insurance companies like AIG in financial trouble and companies that should have known better going under, you need to financially protect yourself.  My book gives you some suggestions as how to do that.

Hold onto your hats, gang, and remember that the strong survive as long as they are patient. My book is available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and most bookstores.

Chapter Titles for the book, Practical Money Making – Surviving Recession, Layoffs, Credit Problems, Generating Passive Income Streams, Working Full Time or Part Time and Retirement.

TABLE OF CONTENTS:
INTRODUCTION

DON’T TAKE ON A JOB WHERE YOU SELL SOMETHING THAT YOU LOVE TO COLLECT

Part of the proceeds from all book sales goes to research a cure for Rett Syndrome and ways to make our daughters lives better!
