In my view, the primary focus should be on encouraging the writers to write. I do not review items I don't enjoy anymore because I see it as a waste of my time. So, if you get a review from me, I enjoyed reading your work. The amazing thing about this whole process is that reading an inspiring review usually leads to me reading more of a reviewer's work also. So, it's a win-win.
I'm good at...
encouraging others to write because I love to read.
I will not review...
something I do not like. I do not enjoy writing hyper-critical reviews. I do NOT believe that "honesty" is a synonym for "mean." If I see someone being "mean" here on the public reviewing page, in group behaviors, or just acting as a bully I will not send them my reviews. The only exception to that would be judging a site contest - there all items get honest (and hopefully diplomatic) reviews of the work from me with no exceptions.

An Unusual Suspect of The Bovine Kind



What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* I gave the prompt for this in "The Writer's Cramp, earlier in the week. I wasn't the judge, but I am interested to see what you writers did with my prompt.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* A perceptive and observant detective finds a shoe under his table. He is very aware of his surroundings because of past dealings with a certain Italian Restaurant.

You might be interested to know that the prompt came from a visit to an Italian Restaurant that I made with my husband earlier this week. A waitress found a high-heeled shoe under one of the back tables and it got me thinking about all the mysterious writing possibilities and thus a prompt was born. We started speculating about the story behind "the shoe."

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

You certainly create an atmosphere and some fascinating characters as I pictured your Italian Restaurant setting.

I liked the ending and how you leave it open for further romance - there is a hint of that for me here and in the situation - (and maybe even adventures to develop). You also present your characters very well - I could picture them and everything as I read from your impeccable descriptions

An Unusual Suspect of The Bovine Kind



What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* I gave the prompt for this in "The Writer's Cramp. I was not the ultimate judge, but I was interested to see what you writers would do.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

In a story, rich in description and imagination a bad day turns around with a romantic twist.

You might be interested to know that the prompt came from a visit I made to a local Italian restaurant on Monday evening. The waitress came out of the back of the place, waving a high heeled shoe that she found under a table. My husband and I and the owner of the restaurant started to muse about what could be the story behind the shoe and a prompt was born.

You have done wonderful things with this prompt!

*Cool**Idea*

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

I like the heart that went into this and the notion that something on a very bad day can be turned around into the best day in a character's life. What a wonderful and inspiring thought! Maybe this could be developed into a longer story or a novel. I was curious to see what might happen between the characters.

I noticed that you did not put your word count in the contest forum as required. You get this with that editing gear thing. When you edit and point at the gear, one of the choices is "Word count". Once you get this you can post it in the contest forum in the future. For poems, we require a line count, for short stories, word count. Just a word to the wise for future reference.

Well done!

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* I gave the prompt for this in "The Writer's Cramp. I was not the judge, but I wanted to see what the writers did with my prompt so here I am to read.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* This is very suspenseful and had me on the edge of my seat, wondering what would happen next. Your descriptions are impeccable and you set the scene very well using my prompt.

You might be interested to know that the prompt came from a visit I made to a local Italian restaurant on Monday evening. The waitress came out of the back of the place, waving a high heeled shoe that she found under a table. My husband and I and the owner of the restaurant started to muse about what could be the story behind the shoe and a prompt was born.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

You took my little prompt and soared with it.

I noticed that you did not include your word count in the entry in the forum. Just something you might want to do in the future. It does not take away from the fact that your story is a stellar one in the thriller/suspense genre. When you click on that editing gear thingy, one of the choices is "word count". Just in case, I thought I would mention that.

Well done, indeed!

*Cool**Idea* It is good for the kitten the way things worked out. You never know when you will be in a position to help someone else to have a better life.

I liked how India revealed her soft heart through helping the kitten. She didn't have to say anything because her actions said it all. Sometimes people are noble in what they do in life and this is one of those times.

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* I came to visit and read in your Blog City Journal.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* I think that all of your rules make a lot of sense, common sense. I don't think a lot of people have it now. I do not know why that is true.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

My big thing is these guys who walk around in stores and in parking lots screaming into their cell phones with bad language. I have seen that a number of times lately. If I am getting into my car near them I like to lay on the horn close to them.

Sometimes I am convinced there is no one on the other end and it's a one way conversation. But just in case it's not I like for the other party to realize that other people are hearing the whole thing from the other side. Just my way of scolding without engaging I guess.

All these make a lot of sense, which is in short supply these days everywhere.

Nice work! *Heartv*

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* You visited me with a nice review so here I am to read and review.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* I thought that they should have done more earlier (Shelia and Tim) to remedy the situation before it got out of hand.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

I liked your analogy to taking care of problems and building a foundation for success that addresses issues before they get out of hand. The thing about freezing and not doing anything really struck a note. I think a lot of us do that or ignore things and then they might spiral out of control.

The monthly fee sounded a little steep to me, but maybe you explain elsewhere what everything entails.

I thought this was well written and very thought provoking. Nicely done!

Review of To Trust It

created by marphilhearts & gifted by siscok



What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow*I clicked on the Read and Review option on the left side of the screen. It is always a pleasure to read your work!

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* In this world of deception and outright lies, it is hard to know what to believe. To trust it. I don't think that we can ever do that, without closer inspection. Everything has a reason and an agenda behind it, unless you account for faith in the mix.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

This part stays with me:

"Spilling out wisdom
Of course at a price
Sanity is an illusion
Perpetrated upon
The collected masses"

Maybe the only thing that reveals the "truth" to all of us is time. The passage of time and patience is what is needed to see beyond the lies.

Fine poem with a lot of thought and wisdom to share!

Review of Regret and Sorrow  
In affiliation with SIMPLY POSITIVE GROUP  
Rated: 13+ | (5.0)
created by marphilhearts & gifted by siscok



What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* You sent me a very nice review. I am late with this visit because I was in one of those pits you describe so well. I would get on here, intending to review, then think what is the point. Not a fun place, but I am sorry for the delay.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* The title really does say a lot. Regret is a hard thing, but sorrow. That can break us if we don't watch out. When I have the regretful feelings, I get angry.

The sorrow can lay me out flat. It makes a lot of effort seem pointless.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

This part at the beginning was my favorite:

"I've been down the road of
regret and sorrow.
It's littered with tantalizing glass,
sharp metal, and unanswered promises."

Unanswered promises. That is a tricky thing too. It could be a minefield, depending on who is doing the answering.

I thought this was powerful and moving. Sometimes, we read things on here when we are meant to read them. I believe that today I was meant to read your eloquent words. I have a lot of anger that I have to work out about the way some things have been done. That's never an easy or fun journey. But we keep trying to try. That's all that we can do and move forward in life and on here I reckon.

Well done, indeed!

*Cow* You sent me a nice review recently (sorry for the delay) so here I am to read and review.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* There is a melancholy theme to this poem, but also you look to the future and to doing for others as the future unfolds by planting the trees and providing a haven for the fledglings.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

This is my favorite part:

"and the mockingbirds are taunting me.
I promise I will plant them
a magnolia tree on the ridge,
a safe haven for their fledglings."

There is tremendous generosity of spirit in this. Though taunted, one provides. It is how parents are supposed to be with their children in the end. Doing what one can and hoping for the best for the future.

I think there is a lot of unstated love here. Well done!

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* You sent me a kind invitation to read - thank you so much for doing that!

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* This is about a word and a philosophy that you hold dear. The anchor word is at the root of all that you do and believe. I think that the fact that it is "love" shines through with your kindness and generosity of spirit with your time and attention to others.

It is also based in a family attachment that is enduring and strong. All these things provide stability, but love is at the root of it all.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

When you have love, you put others first. This is also a part of what you do here and elsewhere, I am sure.

I think this is something to cherish and hold on to and it comes through in your good deeds for others here and otherwise.

Very well done, indeed!

Review of Juliette

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* I am doing the I Write in 2019 activity and you posted before me in the forum. It is my pleasure to read your short story, written for the Musicology Anthology activity.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* This story is told in character dialogue and that is certainly an effective way of unfolding the tale. The protagonist, Jimmy, is roped into a big event at the White House, followed by a poker game with the rich and powerful of Washington, including the President. The night is capped off with escorting the fictional First Lady, named Juliette.

I was sort of imagining a combination of Mrs. Kennedy and Mrs. Trump as the glamour puss first lady.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

*Thumbsup* I enjoyed the notion that someone normal could bring joy into the life of someone who has very little options, but is seen as powerful in their own right.

The story flows well and has some humor and the dialogue reads naturally as one encounters those one does not ordinarily mix with. Jimmy comes through as the class of the bunch.

I enjoyed reading your story.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

I applaud that line about the "wounded healer" who feels the pain of the suffering and wants to help, that is a frustrating position to be in and all you can do is do your best and wait for God and medicine to do the rest.

Waiting is hard, when someone you love is suffering that's for sure.

Welcome to the site!

When times get hard, there are those who choose to pile on. There are plenty of those around in life and on the internet. But then there are those who are there for us, who are our rays of sunshine through the darkest times.

This was my favorite part:

"You rejuvenate my barren heart with the shower of your faith"

It is nice to think that someone can be there like that for someone else.

I think this is timeless, even though it was originally written a while back. Some things don't change. What was missing was their noses in those infernal cell phones. Too much communication now, mumbled the grandparent from the sidelines.

I did chuckle at this and shake my head. We don't know how good we had it back then. Wonderful work!

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* I clicked on the "Read and Review" option on the left side of the screen and it took me to your fine and entertaining story about a teacher, who finds herself stuck in a tree.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I have often thought that people's addiction to cell phones signifies the decline of civilization as we know it. This is more proof of the lengths that folks go to when they lose the things. It is not paying attention to what is going on that leads to a lot of trouble, I reckon.

*Cool**Idea*

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

I applauded the one student that sincerely tried to help the teacher. Of course there were those who were mean and tried to exploit the situation by piling on . Those types always surface in a crisis.

It was good that the teacher had a sense of humor about the whole thing. A sense of humor is important in today's world.

I thought your story was very entertaining and a life lesson in what not to do - don't stick one's head in a tree unless you don't mind being stuck there for the world to see.

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* You visited me recently with a nice review so here I am.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* I think that the strong message here is to learn from your mistakes of the past and don't get discouraged. Use them to carry on into the future to success.

I noticed this first sentence of the 2nd paragraph. You have:

"First look at what how your business is making money-its Revenue Model."

I think you need to take out the word "what" in this sentence.

Then in the first sentence of the 4th paragraph I would change this:

"Take a look at how your funding what you are offering-your Working Capital Model."

I would change it to read:

"Take a look at how you are funding what is offered - your Working Capital Model."

Those are minor things that are easily fixed.


What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

I think your article is clear, concise and helpful to those who are experiencing similar things in business. Keep up the good work!

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* You sent me a very nice review in March. So, here I am to visit you in April and send my thoughts on your moving poem.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I definitely connected with your words here, especially this year.

I guess if we live long enough, we all go through times like this. Your well written words help me to feel like I'm not so all alone in the way I feel some days.

*Cool**Idea*

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

This was the part I connected with most:

"Sleep is the only escape, yet I'm still tired.
Overthinking moment after moment."

There is much comfort in knowing one is not all alone. Things will get better, I know, but at times like these it is hard to get motivated much. You have captured the feeling in a moving and eloquent way.

Well done!

Making a Difference One Review at a Time in 2019! My reviews are not meant to be editing forays or harsh critiques. Rather, I focus on how I connected with your writing and with what it meant to me. It helped me to not feel so adrift this Spring. I would not change a word of it, it's brilliant! *Cow**Balloons**Type*

*Cow* You sent me a review in March so here I am in April to visit and read your fine poem.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I guess it is all in the way you look at it. Some see the rain as depressing. But, it can be a new beginning, there is always that calm after the storm.

It is nice to think of it refreshing the world with a nice wash.

*Cool**Idea*

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

This was my favorite part:

"The clouds are gone,
they dissipated as the wind blew,
all is refreshed, all feels new."

That is my favorite because I enjoy thinking about clouds in new ways. The wind does act on them at times.

Nice work! *Cow**Balloons**Type*

*Cow* You sent me a nice review in March. So, here I am in April to send you a review for your fine poem.

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

I think your poem expresses looking back on an experience that most of us have had at one point or another. Hopefully, it's not a recurring theme for anyone.

The heart wants what the heart wants I reckon. The head is much more sensible, but to take a chance and jump in is what we are all fed about romance. It rarely works out well in the long run.

*Cool**Idea*

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

This was my favorite part:

"I simply could not convince my foolish heart
It has been a gambler from the start"

You are not alone in this by a long shot. Time is a great healer and we see things in time that we didn't see at the moment things were happening. Live and learn I guess.

I bet a lot of readers will identify with your well written poem here. Nice work!

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* You sent me a nice review in March so here I am to visit in April. *Tulipp*

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* This poem is a lovely tribute to a beloved mother. My mother was my best friend, too. I miss her a lot all the time. Your eloquent words remind me of why I miss her so much.

Any mother would be proud to have such a loving poem written in their honor.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

It was all very moving, especially this part:

"You taught me not to complain,
That sunshine replaces the rain.
You're my very best friend.
I'll love you with no end."

It was as if I was meant to see this today as I have been missing my mother a lot this spring.

Wonderful work!

This is a lovely image for me from Lizco252!

*Cow* I saw that you had entered this so came to read. Best of luck with the challenge!

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* It seems like a romantic place to meet. We all have to eat. I'm with you, though, on the cooking. I can do it, but don't love it that much.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

The dancing at the food store sounds like fun. I think a guy who sings and dances at the food store will probably be a guy with an even temper and a good outlook on life.

I like how your speaker is open to different adventures in life and broadening horizons.

Fine work!

What brought Hoovsie meandering in a space time continuum over to your port?

*Cow* You posted in the I Write in 2019 forum before me so it is my pleasure to read your poem!

What does hoovsie think about while perusing your item?

*Cool**Idea* It is hard to pack so much into so few words. Every one you use has meaning. I was reminded of the bird that sings outside my house every day. Well, not yesterday so much because it snowed. But on days that are normal spring days.

What does hooves moo and applaud about while reading your item?

You did a lot with the prompt - particularly with that one word, "aria". It reminded me that a longer song is right around the corner when spring actually does come and quits teasing us.

This said "spring" to me, probably partly because I want it to be here. Then when it's here I'll be moaning about my dog's and my allergies.

But it's time already. Lovely poem with each word carefully chosen. I like the notion of a Forest Symphony. I used to hear that, but they tore down the forest and are building townhouses, so now I hear hammering to go with the bird songs. Always something I guess.

Very enjoyable read - you do a lot with a few syllables!
