  • Burnin’ Coal

    This winter has been very long and brutally cold.  Just a week after getting near 60(F), we’ll be getting 6 inches of snow or so and the temps are back near 0(F) at night.  I have burnt through two massive truckloads of wood, and I have been cutting down trees left and right.  Sure, heating […]

  • Chapters 8, 9, & 10

    Well… Chapters 8, 9, & 10 are written.  There are spurts of time where I am free to write, but they are not very often these days.  Keeping busy, keeps me fit.  I cannot say I’m really fit, but cutting up trees and doing physical labor makes me fitter than if I were just sitting here […]

  • It Was Nice…

    The warm weather was nice while it lasted.  A few days in the 50(F)s is a welcome change over the freezing 20s we’ve been dealing with for the last couple of months.  This is one of the coldest winters I can remember.  With it going back below freezing this week, I could complain, but I […]

  • No Powerball For Me

    Damn!  I didn’t win the Powerball.  I didn’t expect to win it.  I just buy tickets when the jackpot is over $200 million and/or I’m at the liquor store buying Fireball Whiskey.  That stuff is dangerous good.  Oh well.  I’ll just continue on with “Plan A”.  Plan B (winning the Powerball) would have been more […]

  • Free Kindle Edition With Paperback Purchase

    Why pass up a good book?  To be honest, I have no clue why anyone would.  What I understand even less is why anyone would pass up a good paperback book when the Kindle edition is free with that purchase.  If you buy the paperback version of The Event – The Amanai Resistance from, […]

  • It’s Just Business

    Why do people take things so personally?  As long as people do not attack me personally, I do not get upset.  I only find offense to people’s opinions when they are not based on fact.  If someone does not like my books, that is fine.  I do not take it personally.  I don’t like half […]

  • One Of These Days…

    One of these days, people are going to be in for a rude awakening.  We are long overdue for a major catastrophe.  When something huge happens, it won’t matter how much money you have or what the laws that govern a nation are.  The people with the food, guns, and knowledge will be the ones […]

  • WTF?

    There are many things that can prompt us to go “WTF?”.  I bought a pair of side steps for the wife’s car.  Made for the vehicle with no drilling, or so the description on the product stated.  Those direction sucked.  Not only was there a step in the instructions to drill into the car, but […]

  • Chapter 7

    Chapter 7 is in the books, but Chapter 8 is slow going.  It isn’t that I don’t know what to write.  It’s the fact I am about brain dead from endless hours of meetings through the day, or I have a lot of work to do outside (like cut wood) and am physically too tired […]

  • It Will Happen

    I’ve watched TV shows like Gold Rush and similar shows and have seen excavator and equipment breakdowns that seem to happen all the time.  I asked myself if they used crap equipment or just had bad luck.  I have a mini-excavator with roughly 65 hours on it, and I had yet to run into any […]
