A Rough Time In Haiti

The earthquake in Haiti is certainly a terrible time for a country that is as poor as that country is. With most of the capital in ruins and the government unable to function, it has been difficult to get rescue and recovery moving. It will be a long time until the area has a recovery […]

My Newest Book Is Out

OK! Listen Up! My newest book is out! It took a long time to do the editing on it as I have been busy over the last year. Mostly, taking care of my Mom who has not been well over the last year and all the changes that happened around that event. But finally I […]

Book Review: Two Beatle Books

I don’t usually make reviews of books. I don’t think that people would want to read something that some unknown blogger would reccomend. But for these two books I decided to make an exception. These two books were written about the Beatles and are part of my research for some future book about the sixties […]

Some Things Are Not Meant To Be

Last time, I mentioned that there was a possibility that I could sell my book through the gift shop at the hospital where I once worked. Unfortunately, it is not meant to be. They have a contract with another publishing company and it would be a conflict of interest for then to sell mine in […]

A Nano Preview

I’m coming along with the Nano novel in good time. I’m up to 43,000 words and counting as of Friday afternoon, 11-16-08. To celebrate I thought I’d leave you with Chapter 25 of my book. I think it’s half -way decent, though it still needs some work.  So bear with the mistakes! If you have […]

Push To Finish Nano

As of last night I reached over 39,000 words for Nanowrimo. Once I get some things out of the way today, I plan a push to get to my 50,000 -words, hopefully, before Thanksgiving. That’s my plan. Whether I make it or not depends on what happens on me not surfing the Internet. I have […]

Getting Ready For Fall

We had our first cold front move through the Calumet Region this morning, with temperatures in the 40’s. It was cold enough to put the heat on for the first time in several months. It was nice and cozy in bed, my covers up to my nose and hugging my pillow. You know what this […]

Theological Wanderings

I have to admit I don’t wear my religion on my sleeve. I’m pretty personal about it. I was thinking about this as I recalled that a good friend of mine is now a youth minister. When you think of how we were in our earlier life, it sounds pretty funny. But, like life itself, […]

My Book Is Out

Well finally my book is out. I wrote “In The Company of Legends” last year for Nanowrimo.com, which holds a contest every year to write a 50 thousand -word book in the month of November. This book is the result of accepting the challenge. The basic story is about a major leaguer that has trouble […]

4 Movies and a Book

My ‘wild’ Saturday Night consisted of watching parts of 4 movies and reading an interesting book, This goes to show you that life can be simple if not dull sometimes. It also can be relaxing. I had a busy week and really needed that break last night, What were the movies? They were in no […]
