Vacation Ends

This was one of the few vacations that I’ve taken where I had a very clear agenda about what I was going to accomplish. I’m happy to say that I’ve gotten most of the things done that I’ve wanted to. I completed a few courses...

A Good Life Lesson

This is going to sound painfully obvious. It is very obvious but I fell into this trap at home. I was watching a productivity video and it flipped on the light bulb for me. Would you like to know what it was? Well, I’ll tell...

HDWGH – Story 28 – Just Wading Around

–From The How Did We Get Here Series– Now: The Perkins family stood outside of their house as water flowed out of the front door and into the street in front of their house. The house sat in the middle of a cul de sac...

The Hitman’s Bodyguard

I just got around to watching this movie. I love both of the main characters. If you want a nice explosion, guns, action filled type of movie then you’ll love this one. I thought Selma Hayek’s character was a hoot and so much of what...

The Mystery of Dark Matter

Today’s random thought is about Dark Matter. As I was sitting here at my desk thinking about all of the things that we are so close to achieving as far as space exploration, I had a wandering thought. Actually, it was more like a question....

Revisions versus Writing

I am a first draft kind of guy. I can sit here all day long and pound out original material like nobody’s business. When it comes to revisions, I hate it. I’m doing it now. I have to go back over the last few stories...

Book Review – Sort Of

I’m not yet going to give details of the book but I’m listening to a science fiction nugget. I like the whole idea of it. There are parts that don’t seem to make much sense. For one thing, the main enemy is missing the motivation....

Travelling

I am doing something today that I rarely do. Travel. I am totally ok with staying in my own area and minding my own business as long as I can write, I’m happy. Sometimes, I have to get out of the comfort zone. Hopefully, it...

Vacation Begins

Yay! Time to break out the list of things that I’ve been accumulating and get busy! I actually do like this working vacation because I have so many things that I want to do. This is the first vacation I’ll be taking since I’ve began...

Biking Season

I am most pleased about being able to bike back and forth to work once again. This will be the 3rd day so far this week. I have been tired for the last couple of days but there is a period of acclamation where the...

I am Tired

That is all I have.

Are You Incompetent?

This was a great find on YouTube.

Wondering Why Hiring Sucks?

I think with out the need to write more about the subject, the picture from today’s paper below demonstrates why it is so difficult to hire right now. The company I work for goes through employees like shit through a goose. They hire 5 and...

Vancome Lady

This is one of my all time favorite ladies doing a character that is so horrible it makes you laugh…

Societal Concept

Since I write a lot of science fiction stories, I often wonder what would cause a civilization to never make it into space or not very far before the society collapses. The collapse could be for any number of reasons. Here is why I think...

Blocking the Sun

This is a thing. WASHINGTON — The idea of artificially cooling the planet to blunt climate change — in effect, blocking sunlight before it can warm the atmosphere — got a boost on Thursday when an influential scientific body urged the United States government to...

Sports

I grew up with sports. I used to watch my favorite NFL football team play every weekend and couldn’t wait for the Super Bowl. I remember getting depressed after the All-Star game because I knew there would be no football until next season. I actually...

HDWGH – Story 25 – Modern Spycraft

HDWGH – Story 25 – Modern Spycraft –From The How Did We Get Here Series– Now: Charles Dooley’s face became an instant shade of pale as he looked through the telescopic lens of his spy camera. His wife was in the apartment complex across the...

Company Leaks

Apple has had a really hard time to leaks to the press or other sources before a major announcement. There are a lot of people that thrive on rumors and want to speculate about what the next big thing will be. These same people may...

Bad Decisions

When you reach the age of 50 or thereabouts, you begin to look on the world with different eyes. The one thing I have seen recently is just how much young people make really bad decisions. At 50, your decisions are based on a lot...

Baby Bottle Service

How about your favorite coffee beverage served in a baby bottle? No. I am not making this up. From my daily newspaper… I’d link to the whole story but since it’s a paywall, I’ll refrain.

Phone Calls

I don’t like to talk on the phone. Anyone who knows me will tell you how true that is. I hate making phone calls. I’d rather text, IM, or do smoke signals. I’m saying that because my house mate has been on the phone with...
