What’s Happening

I’ve been planning my next book for Nanowrimo in 2007. It will be my third attempt. After writing the first two books about Baseball more or less I decided to take on another genre and do a science fiction book.  It will be sort of Star Wars meets Pirates of the Caribbean kind of thing. […]

What’s It Like To Be A Cubs Fan

The Cubs traded Sosa in 2005 after a difficult season that year, Sosa came back to baseball, after quitting the game for a year: As he called it, for rejuvenation after being injured while playing for the Baltimore Orioles.

Before I Was Interrupted

It Was 40 Years Ago Today

I was going to write about something else until I heard on the news that it was 40 tears ago, today, that the Beatles released Sgt. Peppers Lonely Heart Club Band album. I was a musical breakthrough for both the Beatles and for popular music. The recording studio became an art lab and The Beatles […]
