According to a book published in 1799 ( Travels in Upper and Lower Egypt, Volume 2 -- https://books.google.com.sg/books?id=7TkPAAAAYAAJ&dq ), bananas ripened during the winter months (December through February) in Cairo, Egypt. "The ripening fruit of the banana-tree adorns the gardens of Rofetta with its yellow hue during the three winter months. . . . A few may be seen likewise at Cairo, but none further south."

I think those bananas were ready to eat during March and April.

Interesting coincidence? The coronavirus covid-19 began to spread worldwide during the 2020 Chinese New Year celebrations for the Year of the Rat. Here is an excerpt from my novel of witness UNFINISHED SURVEILLANCE, first published in June 2018.

"The Secret Mahdi, promised redeemer, ageless avenger, he liked you, David. He watched over you in Egypt, those years ago, and his messages are clear. He touched you. He understood your moles, the moles from Allah answering the believers.

"Soon after your relocation to the great city Cairo, a rat in the night leaped from the banana tree and through the hole in the roof door. It snuck to your bed and chewed on your big toe! What a poet, the Secret Mahdi—he told you the future: Long ago, the rat carried the Black Plague to the unbelievers through the boot that is Italy. You see? The Mahdi, who is the divinely guided one, was telling you, ‘When the bananas are ripe, the rat will harry the infidel devils, the heathen doubters, the atheists and backsliders, as an assassin. From the banana tree of temptation to the Italian toe, the rat will sneak and spread affliction.’ It all came true! From the tree of lust came Satan biting the blasphemous on their naked feet . . . And your father patched the hole (and for you alone). And who was your father? The possession of the blessed will of the Mahdi! The door upon which no one knocked was repaired."

In the previous post about the novel UNFINISHED SURVEILLANCE, the following excerpt should read "Rosetta" not "Rofetta."

My Kindle eBook, The Supernormal Ability Cookie Kids' Club, will be free from July 1, 2020, to July 5, 2020.

Here is the Amazon link:
https://www.amazon.com/Supernormal-Ability-Cookie-Kids-Club-ebook/dp/B07M5CVZLS

Here is the book description:

When middle schoolers Cassie, Dayne, and Natasha wake up with brand-new superpowers, they think these gifts are going to solve all their problems. Cassie, who's going blind, can use her power to "see" in a whole new way. Dayne, the youngest of eight kids, can finally be the hero of the family instead of the ninth wheel. And Natasha can glimpse the secrets she's always wanted to know about her parents and grandmother.

They quickly find out, however, that the gifts are temporary. They'll vanish on Halloween night.

For Cassie and Dayne, that just won't do. Together with Natasha, they form the Sack Club, united by one mission: to keep their supernormal abilities forever. Even if it means they have to frame the class bully, sneak around in the boiler room, and damage a little school property in the process.

Meanwhile, Natasha watches her new friends get themselves (and her) in more and more trouble, and she starts to wonder: just how far are Cassie and Dayne prepared to go?

What Inspired Me to Write This Book:

A few years ago, I learned about a husband and wife who were persecuted in a labor camp in China for practicing the popular Chinese meditation discipline Falun Dafa. Like many religious and ethnic minorities, the peaceful practice of Falun Dafa is subjected to brutal oppression by the Chinese Communist Party. I read the story of the persecuted couple and was inspired to write a story in which one of the characters' parents have been persecuted in a labor camp. The girl named Natasha in my book was directly inspired by that story, and Cassie and Dayne's stories grew from that.

Greetings,

I just published my third novel, "The Sexual Assistant" https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/1050849 at Smashwords. Anyone can currently get a copy for free or make a donation, if they wish.

The book is for a mature audience and deals with the misuse of technology by people trying to do the right thing. It is also a romance/action novel. The third in my Barnett Lay Mystery series. Please feel free to read and comment since this one is also stirring up controversy. In my first novel, "Love, Destiny, and Murder" I portrayed the effect of a virus on life in the United States. This was three years ago and many have said it was prophetic.

I strive to create a story that is fun to read. Let me know what you think.

Thanks.
