To All Who Enter And Read This Blog

Hello and welcome,

This is my own personal blog, filled with my own personal views on life, love and loss. Blogs, in general, began as online journals, diaries if you will and in some circumstances, have progressed to so much more. People use blogs now in many ways and for many reasons. Extensions of business websites, as ways to get in on the affiliate market craze, as a method to pass along information, and many other reasons. However, as stated above, this blog is my personal views. I tap in to a wide variety of information when writing my blog posts, but never mention individuals by name. If you recognize yourself in any of my posts then so be it. As I said, I don’t mention names so no one but you and I will know.

Please also keep in mind that, while I do have a very modest number of followers, this blog isn’t exactly like publishing to the New York Times. Anyone who thinks that I put personal business on these pages for all the world to see is sadly mistaken. If that were the case I’d be a rich and famous writer by now. I refuse to censor my post content or my words.

I want to say thank you to everyone who takes the time to read my blog, post comments, subscribe and basically takes an interest in what I have to say. I welcome all questions and comments. Contact me at

Great Sense of Humor – Casket Review

As a book and product reviewer I have to say how much I truly appreciate a well-thought out review. Reviews allow consumers to make sensible decisions when deciding where and how to spend their hard-earned money. When a friend sent me this review I knew I had to share it. Judging from the amount of positive votes it has gotten in just a short amount of time I can see I’m not the only one who thought this was pretty darn funny. I hope no one gets offended – please read it in the spirit it was intended :D

Goodreads Review of Kill Daddy by Gerald Freeman


One man’s journey of self-discovery and struggle to overcome the traumatic effects of childhood abuse and trauma. A must read!

Kill DaddyKill Daddy by Gerald Freeman

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Gerald Freeman has been running from an abusive childhood for most of his adult life. He’s finally at a point where he’s realized that self-medicating with assorted drugs and pushing away well-meaning friends has gotten him nowhere. It’s time for a change. He toys with the idea of killing his father in an attempt to quell his inner demons, but fortunately, he opts for something more meaningful, legal and only slightly less dangerous: traveling throughout Africa on a journey of self-discovery.

Gerald Freeman is a master storyteller. I found myself immediately hooked and completely immersed in a story that could only be told by someone who lived through it. I was struck by how much I didn’t know about Africa. Mr. Freeman has successfully painted a vivid picture of life in some amazing and exotic, yet overwhelmingly poverty-stricken, places…

Author Bio:Rodney St Clair Ballenden Author Photo

Rodney St Clair Ballenden was born in Nairobi, Kenya, in 1947. In lieu of an academic career he chose to travel extensively through Europe, the United Sates of America and Greece. He married Colleen and returned to South Africa to settle on her family farm in the Magoebaskloof district. There he learnt organisation skills and leadership, but the call of the wild drew him away from the life of a comfortable farmer to roam the eastern boundaries of the Kruger National Park. He chose a hermit existence, placing himself in extreme situations exposed to danger and the vagaries of storm and wind.This experience revealed his inner strengths, and from his observations on the relationship between man and the wilderness, he began to write.
