The Cover of my Brothers E BookI am the proud Sister of Mark Marasch… he’s one of the many brilliant Siblings in my family. Mark is a Rocket Scientist, a family man and a wonderfully fun personality, you know I am puffing up my chest with pride, I am so proud of my whole family. 🙂

Mark Marasch family Man. Mark is in the race car surrounded by his lovely wife, kids and our Mom & Dad.

Mark worked hard researching and figuring out how to change his truck to run on Diesel. After all the work, Mark realized that there was a real need for a book on how to do this. So Mark took up a pen name (I love the pen name, Mark A Billy) and wrote a book! His book is called “The Art of Deisel” and he’s having a Free Giveaway on Amazon for 2 days only, this weekend!

Did you want to or have you been thinking about changing  your vehicle over to run on Diesel? If so, please go over and show your love, and check out The Art of Diesel (kindle edition):

My brother Mark, Author of The Art of Diesel.

Now I will let you know that my brother Mark is a Libertarian so you will see a lot of his thoughts and attitudes reflected in this book.


Love & Hugs,


Giveaways, My Mother, and More News!

biting my lip

News on Giveaways, the Blog etc

Hi all, you may have noticed that the blog was down for a while, seems I was too popular as one of the many excuses for “suspending” my account was “hits”. Well they came up with a lot more excuses as time went on as the Analytics weren’t reflecting the “hits” they said I was having per hour.

It looks like it may have been a new plugin to help make small urls straight to my blog instead of through Owly or the others. Anyway when they finally gave me access to the back end of my blog I had shut down that plugin and they then had me shut down all the other plugins as well. To make a long story short, I am working here in the background resetting up everything that I can with the plugins and hopefully the Giveaway Countdown will be up on the sidebar soon so it’s easier to find the giveaways. In the mean time, I wanted to let you know that I am re-opening one of the expired giveaways and adding days to all the currently running giveaways to make up for down time and more.

I will be working on some more posts later on this evening/tonight after I recover the plugins all back into working order and get them plugged in to their proper places. I am still limping along here on my laptop with the fan acting up, so things are running slowly here all the way around.

Jeep Cherokee that I am willing to barter for on Craigslist

In other news from the Lockwood Home Front

My husband and I are trying to use Craigslist for the first time. My husband listed my old Jeep in the barter area, after which we realized that perhaps he should have added in there that we’d exchange it for a high end computer, since the fan on mine is going and I could certainly use a new laptop. Who knows I may be able to make a sweet deal in exchange for the Jeep. Of course we did discuss all the work that we would like to have done around the house in exchange for it, but hey, we will take what we can get. 🙂

It will be quite a while before I can get my laptop repaired the new vehicle wouldn’t pass the required emissions testing so we have a huge expense right now to get my new vehicle running, so it will be a month or so before I can get the fan fixed on my laptop…. this is the reason why we are looking now to see if possibly we can barter for a new laptop for me. Then this laptop could be eventually repaired and become a spare.

My Mother and Father,  just purchased a van with hand controls and a ramp for my Mother and they had an old vehicle that they knew I could use! How sweet is that? Mom, Dad and I keep teasing people (from nurses at the life care center to my neighbors) that the price of my haircuts have gone up. I cut my Mothers hair this weekend and so we have been telling people that I do haircuts now in exchange for a car! lol You should have seen a neighbors eyes when I told her that she’s do for me to give her another haircut again! lol So anyone. reading this in the North Suburbs of Denver. need a GREAT haircut?

News on my Mother

We witnessed my Mother actually moving her other leg just a little bit this weekend. 🙂 She still cannot put weight on her right leg, that can move just a little and feel sensations just very slightly with as she is so weak and the nerves are hopefully re-routing themselves. Hopefully the movement in the left leg wasn’t a fluke and maybe those nerves are starting to repair some.

My Mother has also put on some weight now… instead of being just 70 pounds she is now 100 lbs! Yay! Lets hope that she can continue to be at a healthier weight than she was.

And Mom will be finally released soon from the Life Care Center in Longmont, Colorado as soon as she gets her electric wheelchair that was FINALLY approved today, they say it could be a week or two before she receives it.  My parents have been trying to get Medicare to approve the wheelchair for her since February. Yay FINALLY!

Just to remind you all, I will be up in the mountains, at my parents house for a week or so after my Mother gets home. I hope to assist with the new adjustments to my Mother being a paraplegic now… from diapers, to lifting and more, my Father is going to have his hands full. I will be up there to help out with the things that I may be able to handle with my disabilities, and work on some fun crafts and cooking/baking etc. we will have a lot of laughs too, I am sure.

In closing

I wish to thank you all for returning to the blog after it was “suspended” for the weekend+, I apologize to all for any inconvenience.  Hopefully the problem with the blog is resolved now that I will not re-install the little links plugin as I cannot afford to have to purchase a virtual private server for my little blog.

Watch for the giveaways to increase in time allotted for entry soon, I have a few different things that I need to do to get the blog fully functioning yet and get the countdown for the current giveaways up and running again too, for ease of finding the current giveaways.

Love and hugs
