New review from Judith's "Just Like Buttah" page

KICKER'S HEART by Lois Cloarec Hart. http://www.academyofbards.org/valentine14/loischart_kickersheart.html Speaking of romance, I fell in love with this story. Hart writes an endearing and affecting tale of following one's heart. This should have been written on a scroll with quill and ink. The prose is a kind of beautiful calligraphy of storytelling. The irrepressibly tomboyish Kicker is a sparkling gem of a character. Shades of Idgie Threadgoode or perhaps Laura Ingalls Wilder. Miss Madelyn Bristow is easy to visualize in your minds eye. I found the quiet journey they take to find one another in that era, to be believable and without melodrama.

Just honesty.

Another of the many reasons I found "KICKER'S HEART" to be original and fresh is the use of language that is folksy and skillfully done. This romantic and gently unfolding love story will warm your heart. And empty your tear ducts. Trust me it is a kicker! And the characters simply BEG for more of their story to be told. Okay, so it's really this reader who is begging.

Please don't forget to feed the bards generously.


On the Wings of Chance by Kim Pritekel has been added to the Valentine Story Page.

How Hard Can It Be? by DJ Belt [X&G/alt]
On a visit to Amphipolis, Gabrielle forces Xena to confront the two demons she fears most: explaining to her mother exactly what the relationship between her and Gabrielle is, and working for an evening in her mom's tavern. As the evening degenerates into one hilarious fiasco after another, Xena learns a newfound respect for her mother, and Gabrielle gets in touch with her 'dark side' as she discovers the answer to her question about tavern-keeping: "How hard can it be?"

Return of the Warrior by Katherine A. Standell (aka Archangel) [über/unfinished]
As promised, Archangel brings us the beginning of the sequel to Desert Hawk. Having survived the unimaginable, Dylan Hawke returns to a hero's welcome. What the public does not see and the soldier does not understand is that some battles come home with us from the battlefield. Nightmares drive the lovers apart as Dylan struggles to control the phantoms that haunt her. Lura is caught up in a battle of her own, struggling with a heritage she doesn't want and a family who would not understand. But falcons and hawks mate for life.....or do they?

Dragonjuls' Storybook Challenge
Here's a challenge for you, and no, it isn't another counter on a story! Here on the Dragonjul's site, we are going to 'steal' a brilliant idea other larger sites have incorporated for those wishing to share their talent. I heard a wonderful song the other day by the Dixie Chicks called 'Home' and thought to myself what a marvellous idea for a story. Guess what...that's the challenge! Who can write a story, incorporating the idea of the song however loosely?
As with all challenges, there is nothing monetary to be gained. However, we have a prize for the story deemed to capture the essence of the song lyrics. Every story will be posted on my website unless you tell us otherwise.
To read the song's lyrics go here: http://www.twin-music.com/lyrics_file/chicks/home/home.html
For those who want to take up the challenge please go top http://www.jmdragon.net/require.html for the guidelines.
We're waiting to read those wonderful stories.

Added some new reviews from Judith on her "Just Like Buttah" page

Entre Nous by the creative team of Anne Brisk and SX Meagher
This beautiful billet-doux to flirtation and fantasy is smart, sassy and sexy and not to be missed. I smiled the whole time I read it, saying, oh yeah, I can SO imagine that.

48 Hour Fix by D
Is a bitchin' "fix" for the overdose of bad karma that FIN was. Aphrodite does her thing with her usual flair, helping her Little Bard Friend and the Warrior Babe find their way back to each other.

To The Love Of My Life by Linda Crist
A visit with Kennedy and Carson that is:

Mulligan by KG MacGregor
Mulligan is Par Excellence! KG follows through with the classy style of a seasoned pro. Her approach to the characters is wonderfully refreshing. Mature protagonists? No way she is gonna make that shot work, I thought. So much for me thinking, double bogey for me: It worked. Very well. I can't imagine KG would ever need a Mulligan for her storytelling efforts:} The only Mulligan here is that I want to read this tender story again. It is like a long swig of ice water after 18 holes of golf, wonderfully refreshing. KG, put on your green jacket.
You are a Master.

--from Carole Giorgio

For those of you who have been sending prayers and wishes to us and those who helped with the fund raiser we had a while back, I would like to give a small update as to what has been happening the past week.

Nicole was scheduled for her third surgery on Valentine's Day, we found out about it on the 10th so there was not a lot of time for preparation, but it was a surgery that we knew was much needed, as the tumor had grown again to about the size of a fist. The pressure from the growth was again causing extreme headaches and some left-sided weakness.

Valentine's Day was a very long day for us that began around 5:00 a.m. We arrived at the hospital at 8:30 and Nicole was taken into surgery at 12:45. The surgery lasted three hours and the surgeon was happy with his physical results, but we still had another 45 min. or so to wait until Nicole woke up enough to see if any major damage had been done from a third operation of this sort. We have been very blessed. Nicole has seemed to come through this procedure, once again, with minimal deficits. Eyesight, speech, hearing, all intact ; all fingers and toes are operating at her command and we are very relieved.

She is still in ICU at Harris Methodist Hospital in Ft. Worth tonight, but we are anticipating that she will be moved to a regular hospital room tomorrow and are hoping to have her home in time for her birthday on Tues. the 18th (her 34th and the one the doctors didn't expect her to ever see - what do they know <g>).

Prayers, meditations, wishes -- all answered. Perhaps there is still room for the miracle and a complete remission. She will be getting a new chemotherapy probably starting next week and perhaps third time really is a charm and that, coupled with the new chemo will rid her of this unwanted menace.

I just thought I should update all of you who have been so kind in keeping me and mine in your thoughts and let you know that I truly appreciate all your continued kindness.

Thanks ~ Carole Giorgio (womynbard@aol.com)

--from Redhawk

First a little backstory here . . .

In October, a stranger walked into our shop and told my wife that her baby sister had been in the hospital for a week. Anna visited the next day to discover that Mary had had a stroke.

Mary was diagnosed with a heart murmur as a child. She also had a car accident several years ago that resulted in epilepsy. For the last several years, she's been living on the streets of Portland and other towns. Social Security was turned down for her epilepsy and she's unable to obtain and hold a job for long. Now this.

Initially, her left side was paralyzed though her speech centers weren't affected too badly. After two weeks, she was able to regain some movement on the left. The state covered the bill for her medical since she had no home and no insurance, but they refused to cover her living situation - i.e. when she was discharged from the hospital, back to the streets she would go.

With no other options to be had, Mary moved into our spare bedroom. The process to re apply for Social Security began and our home was now being inspected as a foster care facility. It took a couple of months before the license came through, but it did by Christmas. Unfortunately, the Social Security has not.

Money being tight already, Anna had considered getting another job prior to this. Now we have to have someone home at all times. Mary, while making a tremendous recovery, is incapable of taking care of herself. She can walk with a cane and a brace, can do many domestic chores around the house, but cannot spend much time out and about even in a wheelchair. Her stamina is extremely low and still remains so.

We were fortunate to have a friend living who has been helping in the shop for room and board. Wizard now manages the shop full time for the same and we are, thankfully, able to remain open despite our situation. But the shop is only paying for itself these days.

I have gone back to full time work at my place of employment, but that barely covers half the rent and all the utilities. We were in a major bind until the Social Security goes through and Mary's payments for foster care could begin.

That was when Anna spoke to two of my friends, Ravenhawke and Steph.

When Mary moved in, I had high hopes of giving her a really nice Christmas. She (and my wife) come from a severely abusive childhood. I wanted Mary to see what a loving family be like in that regard.

Because of all of YOU, we were able to do so.

The original donations that began filtering in covered all of December and January's rent, thereby giving us the opportunity to take what little we had to spare and put it to a wonderful holiday.

And then Katrina got into the action with hosting the auction, helping Raven and Steph coordinate. Scores of people donated goods and services to Mary's cause and the result was absolutely astounding.

At this time, Mary has stabilized enough that her doctors will being active pursuit of Social Security. We may even be able to have the original claim after the auto accident as the retroactive date of application. She's happy, healthy, enjoys helping out around the house with dishes and walking two blocks to the drug store to get her prescriptions filled. Wizard's cat had kittens in November, and now we have another addition to our family - Shade, a little black terror that is Mary's.

We also have enough in the bank to assist our rent payments through AUGUST!

None of this would have happened without the assistance you all provided in donations, auction items, and bids. But that's not all I received. The cards and letters from people who are in just as bad straits as us and unable to afford to give anything were a godsend. Receiving emails of encouragement out of the blue gave us the heart to keep going.

Nothing I can ever say will be enough to cover what I feel in my heart. Time and again, the Xenaverse has come together in wondrous ways. It's an amazing and tremendous power you all have and I cannot even begin to verbalize my emotions.

Thank you all so very much for making the sacrifices of time and energy and thought for us.
