Weather.com is such a stinker

With a flood movie debuting recently, this seems an appropriate topic… In all the time since I’ve taken up walking seriously (a period that exceeds five years now), I’ve never had a bad weather experience. Until last week. As previously stated, I live in the Sunshine State.  We get tons of sunshine and also a… Read more »

The Omega effect

It has been fascinating reading the reviews of my final book in the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures trilogy. To this point, only copies from my giveaway on Goodreads have been read and reviewed.  It’s possible some of my Amazon sales have been read, but no reviews have shown up yet.  And that’s what’s so fascinating. The… Read more »

Lesser of two evils?

A couple of years ago, I had my first physical in some time and got a pretty positive report card.  A little high in the cholesterol, a touch above on triglycerides and an otherwise solid result. As a result, I cut out my beloved Coca-Cola (usually a two-liter per week) and finally cut back on… Read more »

Is it okay to feel good when bad news turns less bad?

Recent family events have kept a damper over what should be a euphoric time.  Maintaining perspective within the scope of “we don’t have all the answers yet” is always a challenge, but I do like to believe the best possible results will happen to me and mine, so I’ve done my part in staying upbeat….

So, anticlimactic letdown?

Nah, just a satisfied pause. Already, friends, Romans and countrymen are peppering me with questions of what I plan to do next to market the trilogy.  They’re correct, I need to work at it.  In order to turn my trilogy into the little books that could, I have to sell them myself. But, I’ve also… Read more »

The shirt off my Dad’s back

(I guess I should call this “Size Matters Week”, considering the trend so far) Okay, sure, my Dad isn’t that old. Each time I visit with Dad, he attempts to give me some clothes to take home.  This is mostly a factor of his wife constantly asking him to get rid of his older clothes.  Why… Read more »

My baffling battle with interdimensional fat

That can be the only explanation. I stare agog at my tummy, now an actual tummy and I step on the scale and notice my weight is within a pound of where it has been for the last four years.  Where could this tummy have come from? My only conclusion is that it must not… Read more »

Making good

We’re inching ever closer to the completion of the Jeremy Shuttle Adventures trilogy. Yes, the books have been completely written (and rewritten) for some weeks now.  Yes, the books have been submitted, accepted and processed.  Yet still… What Now? is the last part in literal and literal ways.  I only await the processing of the… Read more »

Coming unraveled

Phew.  Thankfully that’s over. The sutures have been removed and I’m free to return to my normal agitated sleep.  I’m a wanderer while I sleep and I have spent the last week in paranoid fear I would tear open my stitches in the course of my nightly throes.  To avoid this, I changed my sleeping… Read more »

So you think you have it tough?

Today was my Wal-Mart resupply run.  Just three months from the return of hurricane season means it’s time for me to “beat the rush” and get my supplies as well as fill any holes in my normal groceries. One of the things I wanted to get done was flipping my empty propane tank for a… Read more »
