It felt so nice to be able to get out in the garden yesterday, and prune a few plants back. It was still pretty cold, not freezing, but cold. I really hope I didn’t trim too early. I really want there to be a huge change in the garden after I get back from vacation at the end of this month. I love vacations, but I really love coming back home, and seeing a huge difference in the garden. New blooms, sprouts on branches. In order to get that I gotta do a bunch of trimming before I leave. I was able to finish the back yard yesterday, so today I will tackle the front and side yard. I most likely will be feeling it on Friday, so I have to get as much done as possible before my body tells me nope nope. It seems I am in a constant race to do things before my body has time to react.

Genre: Fantasy | Westerns

FREE for a limited time

Caught between criminals, the Pinkertons, law and order, and their own personal needs. The McCoys must devise a way to give everyone what they’re asking for. An ingenious plan is put into action.
Kansas, 1865. The Pinkerton detectives are hot on the trail of the McCoys and the gold coins stolen from the stockpiles overseen by a Northern general. To divert the Pinkertons’ suspicions away from the McCoys on the ranch near Lawrence, Kansas, Tommy McCoy devises a cunning yet dangerous plan. To clear their name, they need to pin the theft of the gold coins on the larceny and savagery of the highwaymen prowling the countryside since the end of the war. Only five McCoys out of the eighteen living around the ranch are determined to follow this risky and potentially deadly plan through. The others hit the road aiming to get as far away from Pinkertons as possible. Their ultimate goal is to find safety in a place where they can use their newfound wealth to live in peace.

Back at the Ranch, the third saga in the thrilling four-part series by author Thomas McCoy, divides the tightknit McCoy family and forces one group of them onto the road again where they’ve battled and won before against the Northern soldiers. Now they must face the dangers of the wild American West, Pinkerton detectives and the local sheriff. Tommy’s plan requires that the few McCoys who are willing to take part in his scheme, must go back to the beginning — traveling to the locations from which they originally retrieved their rightfully-owned gold coins.

Such a radical and dangerous plan forces the McCoys back into doing what they do best; trusting themselves individually and each other as a family. They must improvise as they go in order to devise a cunning and strategic plan to free them from the danger and the bondage of the Pinkerton Detectives who are hot on their trail. The McCoys are determined to clear their names once and for all. Their fast-paced and risky plan brings the McCoys to perilous cliffs of emotion and grit, as they must accommodate the swiftly changing conditions of their wild journey.

Back at the Ranch is the third book in the McCoys: Before the Feud historical Western saga. Historical author, Thomas McCoy has once again delivered in this thrilling fact-based novel that will leave readers on the edge of their seat.

Battle of Midway – World War II: A History From Beginning to End (World War 2 Battles)
by Hourly History
4.3 Stars (246 Reviews)
Genre: History

FREE for a limited time

The Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941 had dealt a catastrophic blow to the United States Navy, but it had not knocked out all of the U.S. carriers. That was an omission that Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto, Japan’s fleet commander, intended to rectify by invading a site close to Pearl Harbor. The surprise attack on Pearl Harbor had worked out well for the Japanese — why not try another one on Midway Island? The plan was to destroy the Americans when they launched a counterattack. Japan, then, would rule the Pacific and continue the expansion of its empire. What Yamamoto didn’t know was that Japanese fleet codes had been broken and Pacific Fleet Commander Admiral Chester Nimitz, privy to what the Japanese planned to do, was able to place the American carriers where they would catch the Japanese off guard as they prepared to launch air strikes on Midway Island.

Inside you will read about…

Not Ready for War
The Crucial Codebreaker
Nimitz, Commander-in-Chief
Preparing for Battle
The Battle that Changed the Tide of War
The Legacy of the Battle of Midway
And much more!

After the Battle of Midway, the Japanese were forced into the position of trying to defend the territory that they had previously taken; their dreams of expanding their acquisitions and becoming the dominant power in the Pacific were gone. The tide of war in the Pacific had shifted.
