10 – Fear, Freedom and The Power To Disconnect

I get along with my younger sister. We've never had any major differences or falling outs. Apparently we didn't even cause our parents too much grief as kids. Except for the time we played Barber Shop and I ruined her bangs. What else do you expect from a five-year old with scissors?

9 – Let The ‘Real You’ Breathe

I've written short fiction and poetry since I was in high school. I kept with it while attending university.  But it slipped away from me as I moved through my twenties.

8 – Why Falling Down Is Important

When I do watch TV it's the commercials that frustrate me the most. I'm often tempted to smash the TV with a bat, as these inspired souls did to their dreaded office printer. It looks like a great stress release, and the best part is no one gets hurt!

7 – Why I Don’t Regret Anything

We've all heard someone say "if I had my time back, I would've done it different." We've probably all said it many times. I'll be the first to admit I have.

6 – Good Advice Never Grows Old

I always did really well in school. Even high school. But I didn't always want to go. Everyone remembers feeling like that. But what I remember most is the little trick my dad taught me to make it a little more bearable.

5 – Exercise To Feel Better

I did my daily workout routine a short while ago and feel excellent. It was an arm workout, following yesterday's chest and back routine. I'll blast my shoulders tomorrow, and do some legs and core work on Sunday.

4 – Eat To Feel Better

I've always liked eating. I'd never say no to food, and always find room for more. Who wants to say no to food, right?

3 – From Great To Epic

I own about 1000 CDs. Yes. One thousand. And yes, I still have CDs. I know. Maybe I'll find my way to I-Tunes someday.

I'll probably pass on an I-Phone though. I like to think I'm smarter than the average bear.

2 - Happiness Is Less Stuff

Happiness is less stuff (or a warm gun, depending on who you listen to).

1 - Saying Hello Is The Best Way To Do That

Hello, and welcome to my blog. I'm glad you've decided to drop by. I'll tell you a little bit about what you can expect.

What's a House Newf?

My photo

The House Newf is from a rugged and beautiful island on the eastern edge of Canada called Newfoundland. He was first identified by a potter with a naturalist's flair, and he does in fact live in a house under the watchful eye of a cat that seems bewildered by the universe at large. That house is in Halifax, Nova Scotia and that's where the House Newf writes fiction and essays on things that add value to his life that may add some value to yours. You can contact him at bobharding80@gmail.com, follow him on Twitter @theHouseNewf, on Instagram @thehousenewf, and like him on Facebook. The House Newf is a unique specimen. Every home should have one.
