Dhara andd Greg

Many of you would remember the show Dharma and Greg. If you don’t then I recommend you pop over to youtube and enjoy a show or three. Now the premise is s free spirited woman and a conservative man get married on a whim. What I found interesting was the clear view that Dharma and her family were more petty and more egotistic than Greg’s family. They mask it in the oh see the world in a new light but the message is clear that they ware pushing their beliefs on others and turn out to be more hypocritical than Greg’s family.

I find it sad to say that I have not met a free spirit who did not take offense when you did not agree with their way of life and may the gods help you should you disagree with them on politics or the environment. Where many of the ones that I have met have argued points based on hearsay and anti-capitalism when the data shows very clearly that the more economic ties a country has with another and that people have with others the less likely they are to go to war.

Tell me what you think.

Find it at Amazon:Dragon Fire

At nineteen, Delcan wants nothing more than to break the bonds of what the world expects of him; winning the tournament at the Flarian Festival and earning a place as a squire is the only way he knows how. When he discovers his own father’s secret past and his role in the kingdom’s history, Delcan’s life as a squire suddenly becomes complicated; when he falls in love with the princess, Aria, it turns deadly.

Dragon Fire is the story of a farmer’s son and a princess who dreamed of becoming a knight. It is a coming-of-age tale set in a world where the young have no hope and the old no longer believe in magic. With compelling characters and vivid language, it is an action-packed story of romance, hope, sacrifice, and the most unlikely of heroes.
