Rigby's Roads (Book) - 8/27/2010 7:37:08 AM
Rigby’s Roads is about a man that turns his life around and builds an empire of Harley Davidson’s motorcycles. Also he has to deal with an unscrupulous friend who got himself killed and almost ended his life. The man that saved his life was of course the main character in Rigby’s Roads, Jack Rigby. The other fascinating character is Yogi. Yogi turned Jack Rigby’s life around by teaching him to enjoy life and to list 50 things that he would like to do before he died. This story turns into the most intense and dangerous adventure reading that kept you on your toes. Yogi with his intellectual and psychological mind took Jack Rigby through an experience that he would never forget. The more confident Jack Rigby became the more he was able to face his fears at Sturgis Motorcycle Fair when they all had to face Yogi’s kidnappers, and the FBI. This fascinating and suspenseful book will hold your attention from start to finish totally gripping and downright impossible to put down. It will give you, the reader, something to think about your own life style changes that you would like to make for yourself. I recommend this book to everyone!!
Maddy's Secret: The Search For Einstein's Lost Work (Book) - 8/27/2010 7:36:11 AM
Maddy’s Secret “The Search For Einstein’s Last work” is also an incredible, fascinating and suspenseful book. It deals with our government, FBI, CIA, Russian Mafia, kidnapping and torturing. Cynthia Dallier and her two siblings were left the farm, that their mother took them when they were children, in their uncle’s will unbeknown to Cynthia and her siblings. The excitement starts when they are being followed, kidnapped, homes broken into and tortured. The only one that knew about the secret was their mother, Maddy, who was in a nursing home. They all move to the farm and start to realize that the secret is right there at the farm with everyone wanting to know the secret. As the secret starts to untangle the mayhem starts with the murder and the unveiling of the mole in the group. Yogi was also involved in this story with fascinating adventures that he was able to untangle. Yogi is such a character and that is a good thing… I believe the way this story ended will not be the end of Yogi. Looking forward to the next book if one is in the horizon. Maddy’s Secret was also suspenseful, intriguing and intellectually. I recommend this excellent story to everyone.
Michael Charles Messineo is a fascinating and brilliant writer who researches in depth all his material to hold your attention and to develop feelings for his characters.
Maddy's Secret: The Search For Einstein's Lost Work (Book) - 12/28/2008 3:45:29 PM
Wow. I am hooked just by the title and the story description. I am the kind of person who thinks about this sort of thing happening to me at some point in my life, as I have met with the darker side of science and technology before. Or should I say they met with me.
For example, seems they knew specific scientific things ...very to the point things things about what I thought, that I thought about on my theories, that I had never told anyone about before. Big Brother is real. Some of us like me, are in his of interest file/ to keep track of file/ to keep an eye on file. Rockie probably should keep my mouth shut...file, huh?Please read my bio and see why that might be. I am the real thing. I will put this one in my AD to purchase when I can. A definite read for me.

Found the book to be very interesting. The characters were easy to visualize and colorful. The story progressed at a rate that made me want read "one more chapter", before putting it down. Very well written and thought out. Looking forward to the third one.

Didn't you mention "Middle Life Crisis Twice here" lol
Taht alone and the H.D. Culture and a few others, would be our reason - You make presentations at work.
How about the BEST o f all, "YOU LOVE THE SUN IN YOUR FACE"
or YOU LOVE TO DRIVE WITHOUT WINDOWS, let the air blow your hair!
These #2 are GREAT too, You are curious how a person with dyslexia can write a book.
You want to read a book that will change your life.
YOU'RE an AMAZING INDIV. Michael!

I think the movie "The Bucket List" borrowed considerably from you!

My Dyslexia (Short Story) - 8/4/2007 6:32:14 AM
This is a wonderful article. I can relate because my oldest son had the same problems in school, even though they knew he had a high IQ and diagnosed the problem...even telling the teachers how to deal with it. They sent me a letter when he was in Jr. High telling me he'd never learn to read, so I taught him myself with comic books and the Bible. He now reads very well, although is a slower reader than some. Thank you for sharing this important information.

Awwwww...no reason not to read this book...only one problem though....to ship any book to this side of the world....makes it so expensive that by the time it gets here...being in deep trouble already the might just lead to suicide....lol!!
But hey I would still love to read it anyways...just waiting to win the lottery!!
Big smiles okay!!
My Dyslexia (Short Story) - 1/25/2007 6:13:51 PM

Hi Mike, Retired military here with lots of medals and memories. Mine was a Porsche I drove in Germany for four years on open autobahns and mountains of Switzerland. Your list is similar to mine (minus the biking) that I did while traveling and living all over the world. Winning the bowling tournament (ABC Masters) was more exciting then most would believe. With your type and active imagination, your mind can accomplish as much if not more then your eyes. Harold
My Dyslexia (Short Story) - 5/3/2006 4:12:11 AM
My brother is dyslexia, and he has done the same as you,,actually I felt I myself related to these words, that I sent it to my brother, he having to walk the path same as you and many others. I did not know he was for a long time, his wife told me years later, she is the one who encourage him to "over come somewhat," he today is not the most succusful, but we are proud of him, enough to call him brother, (lol)he's grown up now, and runs his own computer shop from home. In school he and I struggeld to make that C, I even thought once, well since I am a little smarter, I'll try college, well I guess it's not meant for me to have a degree on my wall,,instead I have two granddaughters in my lap! There are many of those who have pitied theirselves because of a disability, it is great to see someone that has made it an worthwhile effort in not letting it lead into a path of living on the streets, A pat on the back and a salute to you,,keep the ink flowing,,clea

Nikola Tesla Timeline - Legend, magician, sorcerer (Article) - 12/28/2008 4:14:13 PM
Please read my bio and several of my articles. The Philadelphia Experiment article that I wrote has some things you might be interested in reading. My whole life resonates around this subject. You must get back with me about this. Word is, that Tesla quit the project leading to the Philadelphia Experiment before it got off of the ground and they hired Von Neumann, because Tesla foresaw the lack of protection for the men on the ship as being very hazardous to them, but his warnings were ignored, and then wanted no more part of it. After the FBI FOI docs were posted (have you seen them!.) they were removed again, all over the net, including from the Franklin Institute site, were he received a medal and gave a speech there early in the 1890's. Good stuff still there, on Franklin site about him if you so a search, including photos of original documents about him, and from him and about his new AC work at the time. Interesting to see there at the Franklin, which I have been to and seen a handwritten lab notebook of Tesla's in the 1970's, his math there was all correct too) the point of view of those scientists reviewing his work then, and what they used as criteria to its importance.

Las Vegas Mystery (Article) - 1/21/2007 11:22:27 PM
I think you are onto a a great premise for your novel. It's my kind of story. Not for writing, but reading. Vegas history, celebrities, gambling, arson, Einstein, and government secrets. Concentrate on it and it will be better than "Da Vinci Code."

About the Net, have you seen Robin Sloan's EPIC?

Excellent story Bro. Michael. Something like this, the ignorance of conditions that challenge our ability to read, reflect and grow in knowledge, is to me like knowing about HIV and doing nothing to share how to prevent it.

Thank you so much for highlighting an issue so often overlooked in society.
I can only imagine if Einstein, Churchill, Agathie, or Edison had given in to the labels thrust upon them by people who didn't understand.
Your article is informative, helpful and thought provoking and I hope everyone stops by to give it a read!

Self Promotion (Article) - 10/23/2005 6:38:26 AM
Self-promotion is key to the marketing of an author's literary wares.
This is an EXCELLENT article on keeping an author close by and always within reach of the wallet, you see, pulling out that business card that yet serves a dual purpose and pulling out those dollars that are stored right near that business card. Michael, this is an ingenious marketing gig! I also pull out all the stops of self-promotion, Authors Den here to be the big one! It is key to sell a personality. I am targeting companies who are after the pink dollars, the lesbian and gay community. I am offering my name for endorsements. As you know, I also have a Harley-Davidson project and I am marketing it to the straight community as well as the gay community. It all speaks the same language, the unmistakable sound of the lendendary Milwauke wheel, the Harley-Davidson ... potato ... potato ... potato...KICKSTART self-promotion in gear! Thanks for the inciteful article Michael. I wish you many sales!
Self Promotion (Article) - 8/25/2005 6:04:34 AM
Well it's a year later from the other comments. But your article is still great! What a creative idea. I can't wait to see how I may implement it in my non-fiction genre. Best wishes. Hope you have sold tons of books.
Book Marketing Ideas (Article) - 6/5/2005 11:01:48 AM
Seems a good idea to at least check out, but I find I will never market a book as I just enjoy to write and make folks laugh...hey, hope you are well, have not heard from you of late...Peace, Ed & Rufuz

Pearls Of Wisdom (Poetry) - 12/5/2013 6:31:24 PM
Heard someone once say that wisdom really comes from experiences in life, along with understanding. Even though my father was an atheist he agreed with the Bible's 10 commandments and of course the golden rule. He stated that if your going to follow anything, the bible would be the best book to follow.
Pearls Of Wisdom (Poetry) - 10/5/2013 10:00:00 PM
The Bible is called: Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth.
Now that's wisdom, man is but a fool. Amen

Very good, Michael. I can feel it's very personal. Has some, resentment in it, therefore a point of view.

Whispers In Your Mind (Poetry) - 9/27/2013 2:04:39 PM
Very beautiful and visual!! Loved the words "whispers in your mind"
Whispers In Your Mind (Poetry) - 9/27/2013 10:28:26 AM
If a man shouts his thoughts to an empty forest, is he heard?
I think expression is very important to clear the mind of all the clutter that builds up over time when were not communicating with others. That's why the Internet, the global village, allows us to “shout our minds” to the masses. Once in a while, we'll get an answer.
Whispers In Your Mind (Poetry) - 9/27/2013 7:01:49 AM
I enjoyed this Michael. Reminded me kind of like some Marty Ballin lyrics. I see someone else said 'put it to music'. Nicely done.
Whispers In Your Mind (Poetry) - 9/27/2013 5:54:28 AM
I believe I've been doing this all my life. Some people don't like what the whispers in my mind are when they are proclaimed, but.....so what!

This is so fun! I just love the way that it is written. I am just starting to do a family history since my Daddy died and was searching for poems or stories from the 40 thru 60's. I think that I was led to your page my divine intervention. Thank you Mike for all your work. I have been on here reading forever. Everything that I have read is great. Keep it up. Lisa Bullock Mings

Love the perspective of Liar, this poem has a sharp poetic point that needs to penetrate those that lie to us in positions of authority.

The Liar (Poetry) - 11/10/2012 1:47:58 PM
Oh, how I completly agree with you! The liars are in office again. Are people blind to the lies and promises? We should be scared of this liar and all the people who have fallen for his svengali lies. I expressed my feelings when I wrote a poem called "The Black Wreath" after the election votes were in. A very sad day for America!

Sounds as if you are speaking directly to a politician to me. Who can we trust with their lies? Is nothing sacred anymore? Are morals down the drain of politics? Seems to be everywhere and no one seems to care either. Excellent poetry here.

Hey Michael...I like your poem, Dude, and I really like the pic! Very nice! The main reason I wanted to read your poem is because I have written a poem called "The Liar" also. Poems about liars are always short, because exposing them only takes a few words of truth. Also, the poet most likely wrote it because "The Liar" had touched the author's life.

I have found this to be the case in marriage. It seems we get so busy with the house, bills, house and yard work.........We lose the playful spirit we had before we were married and our existence together is just that - existence! Thank you for your mind opening poem.

The picture totally him,portrayed well! I am afraid he is here to stay for awhile.
Your Liar’s, Liar
There is truth in what you write,
The liar is a parasite.
I ask the question is it me?
Or just self, being set free.
Narcissistic is your Liar,
Shame on him, his tongue of fire!
Psychopaths created play,
In this world they will stay.
Liar charmed through a sociopath,
They lack remorse, on their victim’s backs.
Liar, Liar, no pants on fire,
Today his play involves desire.

The Liar (Poetry) - 5/15/2012 4:19:58 PM
Perhaps 'Liar' reflects the societies we live amongst now. We were brought up always to be truthful...Our political leaders (I am from the UK) say one thing and then do the other...Not very good role models for our youngsters...
The Liar (Poetry) - 4/28/2012 12:27:16 AM
I like this - it speaks to modern politics and those politicians who dwell in the sewers (amongst others). it's the sort of material we should present to children constantly to show them that there is another way and that the corruption we see all around us is to be rejected not embraced. For we really do have to fight to build a new culture of honesty from the ruins created by the liars. Well done mate.

Life certainly is like opening doors and finding surprises behind them...but if we don't open the doors, we'll always wonder what might have been....it's called living....Nicely done, Michael!
The Door I Want To Enter (Poetry) - 11/6/2011 11:09:17 AM
A thought provoking poem, it made me think if I'm opening the right doors in my life. Very cleverly writtten, Michael.
The Door I Want To Enter (Poetry) - 11/6/2011 9:59:17 AM
This is very good, Michael. I particularly are impressed with the simplistic approach to a more then likely a convoluted trial and error we all must go through in the opening of our own special doors.

My sentiments exactly. Great job of exposing THE LIAR!
The Liar (Poetry) - 3/13/2011 2:32:08 PM
Excellent poem about a subject which makes most people run from those who holds such a talent...
A really good liar will not even tell themselves the truth... this way they don't have to 'feel the pain' of their own handy work. Besides, most liars fall into the category of Narcissism.
The Liar (Poetry) - 3/12/2011 8:12:11 AM
This is awesome! It is a sad truth... The hardest part about loving a liar? By the time you find out they didn't care and felt no pain, your heart has been crushed. I recently went through this and felt every minute of it... but she didn't.
I Miss You (Poetry) - 3/10/2011 1:43:18 PM

The Liar (Poetry) - 1/7/2011 8:10:45 AM
Very clear message, Michael.....why do people lie?
The Liar (Poetry) - 12/7/2010 8:02:43 PM
Well written and cleverly conveyed. I love the way the poem pours forth, honestly and freely. The best line in my view is the last. Excellent question.

The beautful lines are heart touching & motivational,which opens all the door of thinking of ones..its really gr8.
The Liar (Poetry) - 8/21/2010 9:42:12 PM
God, this is so true. How can anyone stand there, look you dead straight in the eyes and lie to someone, especially if it's to someone they claim they love. My dad always told me though, don't lie, for one, you have to come up with another lie to cover that one, and so on, then you forget, what you told, and more important who you told them to. Tell the truth and and you have nothing to worry about. Lies, what most people do not realize, even though they think they're good for the moment, do come back and bite you in the ass, and then you have lost face, unless of course, your circle are liars, and that's just they way they think they should live life.
Liars are the worst, and even when they are caught, why does it seem they have to come up with another lie for the reason they lied in the first place. Too bad it's not a crime when you catch and can prove someone lied, but I guess it does work out in the end when they are caught, for now they no longer have the trust they thought they had, not amongest the liars they hang around with. What's the old sayind, honor among thieves, but when it comes down to the truth,,,,great posts, and all liars do have a special place as well as lost a good many friends because of their lies.

The Liar (Poetry) - 7/19/2010 4:55:17 AM
You've described the liar well, and there are many of them out there in this world. When I was growing up my daddy always told me that my word was my honor. If I told someone I would do something I'd do it at all costs just so I could keep my word.
Wish people felt that way in this day and time.

Dear Michael, very well written poem. Sounds like a child telling a parent! - Lalita
Stop Asking Questions (Poetry) - 7/17/2010 4:23:03 AM
When our significant other is asking questions, it is a signal that something is wrong with them. They are either really insecure, or they are the one doing what the questions are all about...If they are doing whatever it is then they think the other person is too...simple...
You are right to walk out, the questions will never end otherwise.
Much peace, love and light,
Stop Asking Questions (Poetry) - 7/17/2010 4:08:19 AM
This poem really has a strong message - and I bet my son would like to repeat the context of your poem to me. I have a tendency to "want to know" too, where he is concerned and I really have to monitor what I say to him because he gets defensive and tells me I don't have to know EVERYTHING. He's right, of course.
This is a good write.
A Broken Promise (Poetry) - 7/7/2010 3:12:04 AM
Your poem touches on a hurtful topic when a person we have given our trust to fails to keep his/her word to us.
My father always said, "A man's word is his honor, and if we say we'll do something, we should do it at all cost."
A fine piece of writing with a worthy message,
Life's too short (Poetry) - 7/7/2010 3:07:15 AM
I love your article and your positive approach to life.
Many years ago I discovered Dr. Norman Vincent Peale's writings and have promoted my own positive thinking ever since then. I've come to believe that life, first, is one's state of mind, and we can choose to live in the confusion of negativism or we can choose the more peaceful and positive condition to live by.

I don’t need to tilt my head to read the writing on the wall.
The Liar (Poetry) - 4/29/2010 4:33:18 PM
Reading "The Liar" brings to mind my many years of courtroom background where we learn what is taught in law school: "Eyewitness testimony is the least reliable evidence of all," where the only difference between a mistake and a lie is intent.
And as we've all learned years ago, "The road to hell is paved with good intent."
If I had more amibition, I'd commit this poem to memory. I won't. But I will put it in my Memory File.
Final word: No man hates a liar as much as a lied-to woman!
My Dreams (Poetry) - 4/29/2010 4:24:50 PM
Fascinating commentary on what most all of us experience either nightly or frequently.
I'm not altogether sure about your introductory statement "...for your nightly viewing pleasure," even while your last line is "I wake up in cold sweat to dream another time."
You know, Michael, years ago I used to wake up laughing in the middle of the night over some dream situation which didn't sound at all funny when I related it to my wife. I guess I've mostly outgrown the funny dreams since I'm more concerned with Heaven's Door nowadays than Disneyland. (Sign of my aging times.)
Others that find dreams fascinating are clinical psychiatrists, who also want to know when in our sleep we dreamed a certain dream. In return, I've always wanted to ask them the same questions. One of these days!
Well done, Michael. I enjoyed this.

Face The Doom (Poetry) - 4/17/2010 10:22:57 AM
In many respects, Life is somewhat akin to a dental cavity: It can be painful and rarely, if ever, gets better on its own. So, when our back's finally to the wall, many of us break down and make an appointment with our dentist. And we're happy when the pain and the prospect of more pain has been faced and conquered.
"Face the Doom" is sage advice from one of wide and varied experiences, who also tells us, "There are always alternatives." I agree, with the observation that oftentimes the alternatives don't come into view until we "Face the Doom."
Insightful and inspirational. Great write!
Life's too short (Poetry) - 4/7/2010 7:22:39 AM
Life is too short to focus on the negative!!! Park those thoughts that make you worry and create new goals to which you'll hurry. Excellent write! We have to face our demons to move on and try new things that might scare us. That is how we grow into something more. We can't be afraid to stand tall and explore it all. ~Chessly

You bend the facts for your own gain. How is it you feel no pain/ There's so much truth in this statement that is so about our society today. What could we do to change it? Living the truth ourselves as Jesus did. It can hurt to be a truthful person but for the long haul it will pay off. Honesty is still the best policy. lil flower

Sounds like you've embarked on a very big adventure. It isn't easy turning one's life on its ear and being open to what might happen if we just altered one thing in our lives... if not many. ~ Sara

Bending the impossible is something I've done all my life. And y'know, it's not so impossible. I appreciate what you;re saying here.
Bending The Impossible (Poetry) - 6/6/2009 6:55:15 PM
rebuilding foundations is an exercise in possibility ...

love this--i am a fan of wisdom learned by living a life-not always played by the rules

So true. Writing bridges the gaps between yesterday and today without forgetting about tomorrow. Thx, dl

I am not really a huge poetry fan , but this one really got me. Nice job Mike..

Sometimes the past triggers the future. IF we learn from our mistakes the past serves as a spring board toward new awakenings.
I liked this poem. I have lived my life with the school of not living in the past or the rear view mirror..I have now readjusted that thought, and say, The past is my learning curve, I shall improve upon my mistakes and take it as a learning lesson toward renewal and realization that you do get another chance to make it right.
Much peace, love, and light,

This poem is quite true,and more often than not,a lie about a particular matter is heard many times before the truth of the matter comes out.
I'm Writing Through You (Poetry) - 4/30/2009 4:04:54 PM
I like the longing feeling in this poem very much. I like the way you repeat "I'm writing through you" in each stanza as it unifies the poem. ~ Sara

I like the enthusiasm
My Dreams (Poetry) - 4/19/2009 5:39:16 PM
how to decipher the source and intent of a dream solely depends on the individual psyche ...
My Dreams (Poetry) - 4/19/2009 12:28:16 PM
Dreams are the reality of the subconscios and sometimes they can leak over into reality...
My Dreams (Poetry) - 4/19/2009 5:59:11 AM
i enjoyed this-i don't seem to dream much or don't remember much--sounds like yours are great!
My Dreams (Poetry) - 4/19/2009 5:32:36 AM
I like the tightly constructed stanzas and the steady rhythm of this poem when read aloud. Dream exploration has always intrigued me. Sleep can be a vehicle to a broader, more open side of one's self.
My Dreams (Poetry) - 4/19/2009 4:41:16 AM
Very interesting indeed sweet man..dreams can feel so real at times...enjoy your day Hugss
My Dreams (Poetry) - 4/18/2009 10:32:38 PM

Hi Michael, You write this song and it happens to so many... I would love to hear the music that goes with it.... great expressions here...
Driving Me Away (Poetry) - 4/17/2009 2:49:23 AM
Oh my,I certainly can feel the pain within these lines dear man..stay safe and well...Hugss
Driving Me Away (Poetry) - 4/16/2009 7:29:30 PM
These relationships either give us a will or teach us compromise. A will to the one who yields and a lesson to the one who demands control.
Honest, pure pain in this write, Michael...
Driving Me Away (Poetry) - 4/16/2009 6:36:35 PM
sad write-well expressed with great feeling
Driving Me Away (Poetry) - 4/16/2009 6:17:44 PM
Heartfelt, beautiful and yet sad.
"Driving Me Away" pulls at the heartstrings and yet it is an experience that at times we all may have experienced.
A wonderful write,
The Liar (Poetry) - 4/15/2009 10:19:09 PM
You are the master wordsmith! Good one!!
Goodness, Passion, Darkness (Poetry) - 4/15/2009 7:11:38 AM
You made our day with your carefully selected words, and the depth of meaning you brought in such a short poem. Excellent!

The Liar (Poetry) - 4/13/2009 1:35:12 PM
Fanbulous! I would have not picked out the word "LIAR" If you had not pointed out how to see it!
Life's too short (Poetry) - 4/13/2009 7:03:22 AM
This is quite a coincidence. I just wrote and posted a poem with the same name and the same theme. Great write here.
Goodness, Passion, Darkness (Poetry) - 4/12/2009 9:50:12 AM
You summed it up nicely Michael, in rich deliverance of meaningful words> Bless You! Jasmin Horst
