A Feast Of Carrion By Keith McCarthy

 

             ( RIPPLES SURROUNDING THE DEATH OF NIKKI EXNER )

 

SYNOPSIS

Any death within St. Benjamin of Pathology would create ripples, but that of Nikki Exner is far from ordinary: her theatrical murder horrifies everyone. The police have fingered a suspect, but John Eisenmenger, former forensic pathologist, thinks they are mistaken.

Teaming up with solicitor Helena Fleming – who has her own reasons for wanting to prove the police wrong, he sets out to discover the truth. As they do so, there is more at stake than uncovering identity of a murderer.

WHO IS A WOMAN

Who Is A Woman By Josbons

( A conversation Between God And An Angel )

When God created woman, he was working late on the sixth day…. An angel came by and asked:

ANGEL: Why spend so much time on her lord?

GOD: Have you seen all the specifications I have to meet to shape her?
1. She must function on all kinds of situations.
2. She could be able to embrace several kids at the same time and have a hug that can heal anything from a bruised knee to a broken heart.
3. She must do all this with only two hands. She cures herself when sick and can work eighteen hours a day.

The angel amazed, so he asked,

ANGEL: Just two hands… impossible, and this is the standard model?

The angel went closer and touched the woman and said… But you have made her so soft Lord.

GOD: Yes, but I have made her strong. You can’t imagine what she can endure and overcome.

ANGEL: Can she think?

GOD: Not only can she think, she can reason and negotiate.

The Angel touched her cheeks and said, Lord, it seems this creation is leaking! you have put too many burdens on her.

GOD: She is not leaking. It is a tear. The Lord corrected the Angel.

ANGEL: What is it for?

GOD: Tears are her way of expressing her grief, doubts, love, suffering and pride.

This made a big impressions on the Angel. So he said… Lord, you are a genius. You thought of everything. A woman is marvellous.

GOD: Indeed she is.
a. She has strength that amazes a man.
b. She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens.
c. She holds happiness, love and opinions.
d. She smiles when she feels like screaming. e. She sings when she feels like crying, cries when happy and laughs when afraid.
f. She fights for what she believes in.
g. Her love is unconditional.
h. Her finds strength to get in with life when her heart gets broken.

ANGEL: So she is a perfect being?

GOD: No. She has just one drawback. She often forgets what she is worth.

So, if you are a woman, know your worth and be proud of who you are.

He runs into trouble with his new boss, a tyrant who, it’s whispered often ignores suspicious autopsy findings or, worse, covers them up so his lab can run smoothly.

You Say You’re Pro-Life – But Are You Really?

ourbulgarianadoptionstory

I don’t do politics. Politics is ugly. Especially this election, yeesh. It seems, that one of the major divisive talking points is the pro-choice vs pro-life argument. The more and more rhetoric I hear, I want to ask you (challenge you even) Pro-Lifer, are you truly truly pro-life or are you simply anti-abortion?

What happens when this child you fought to be born needs routine well checks and immunizations and their parents need help affording it? What happens when the child turns out to have more complex medical needs like Down Syndrome, congenital heart defect, or osteogenesis imperfecta? Are you supporting programs like Medicaid? Are you supporting or contributing to local doctors who provide free or reduced services for low income families? You should be. Access to healthcare greatly increases one’s quality of life. And you said you were pro life.

What happens when this child you fought to be born grows into a toddler…

She isn’t expecting any surprises; certainly not to find her husband dead in bed beside her from a massive heart attack.

Claire isn’t your average thirty something. She has a successful career, a handsome husband , and two babies at home. But nothing prepares Claire for the horrible reality of discovering that the life she’d lead was all a lie, fostered by a husband who promised to love and cherish her forever… or so she thought.

Two women from two generations, bound together by denial, anger and grief. How far will their misery and fear push them? What happens when each of these women comes face-to-face with the other wife?

Will a husbands betrayal lead to a womans revenge?
