Not Black, Not White

| April 29, 2015

I try to stay away from political controversy. I really do. But sometimes it’s impossible to not have an opinion. And I guarantee that my opinion isn’t in sync with people on either end of the political spectrum. I am, fundamentally, a moderate. I believe in fairness. I believe in justice. I believe in personal […]

Peeves – the pets you don’t have to feed.

| January 24, 2015

Most of us have little things that people do that we find personally uncomfortable or unreasonable distressing. They’re known as Pet Peeves. Normally they aren’t things that will hurt anyone… it’s more just those oddments that tweak us every time we hear them. A type of laugh that for unexplainable reasons just grates on our […]

What’s wrong with free?

| April 25, 2014

Have you ever joined one of those lists? You know the ones… they send you a regularly scheduled email (usually weekly or daily) telling you where you can get all the free ebooks. #136400195 / gettyimages.com I did. Actually, I think I joined four of them. When I got my first Kindle I was all […]

Surviving Christmas

| December 23, 2013

Here it is, almost Christmas. And am I prepared? Not at all. Ok, everyone. At least pretend to act surprised. Or not. Whatever. I know I’m not the only one in this boat. Fact is, there are always people who feel overwhelmed at this time of year. There are always people who feel like they’re […]

Shipwrecked! (sort of)

| July 10, 2012

It was a perfect day on the lake in North Texas. A few high clouds kept the temperatures in check. The water was smooth as glass. And 75 intrepid souls boarded a party barge, 2 pontoon boats, and a speed boat, and headed out for a day of fun in the sun. Nearly 4 hours […]

I’m not above shamelessly pointing you to someone a whole lot smarter than me and saying “go read this.” So… Go read this.

Interlude… What I’ve been doing

| July 21, 2011

Obviously I have not been blogging for the last several weeks. That is not because I am uninterested in keeping in touch with all of you beautiful people. Really, it’s not. And yes, I think you’re all beautiful. I haven’t been here blogging because I’ve been somewhat … unfocused … on my writing project. And […]

Administrata – fighting the spammers

| May 20, 2011

Both my ME and my MUSE get quite put-out at spammers. Since a good 80% or so of the comments I’ve received so far have been spam (despite having the obvious spam – comments with multiple links, etc – automatically blocked) I have changed my comment settings. I still welcome comments from all readers of […]
