  • Does Not Really Exist

    It is amazing how much we care about things that do not exist.  I define something that is “real” as something that is tangible.  I want to be able to touch it, hold it in my hand, look at it.  I can’t hold the internet in my hand.  I can’t touch social media (that sounds […]

  • Is Freedom an Illusion?

    I just finished watching the latest Captain America movie, and it got me thinking about freedom.  I will not ruin it for those who haven’t seen it.  Freedom can mean different things to different people.  There is financial freedom.  There is freedom from being scared.  There is freedom from abuse.  Do we give up our […]

  • No Sympathy

    I feel for those who cannot help themselves because of some physical or mental disability or other limiting factor outside of that person’s control.  I have no sympathy for people who choose not to help themselves.  If you’re poor because you’re lazy, I have no sympathy.  If you’re poor because you’re horrible with money, I […]

  • Ahhh… Relaxing Work

    Some might think I’m crazy, but it was a nice relaxing weekend staining the deck, finishing the fix on the footer drain, repairing the pool heater line I accidentally ripped out of the ground, and pressure washing the pool steps, table, truck, and excavator.  It was relaxing because it was so nice out.  Soaking up […]

  • Chapter 13

    Chapter 13 is done.  I am almost halfway done with the planned number of chapters, but that could easily change.  It is one thing to plan out a book, movie, or even an email.  It is another to be in the middle of writing and realize the direction you were going to take in the […]

  • Chapter 13 and a Half

    So, I am only halfway done with Chapter 13.  It is not for a lack of trying, but life is busy.  I thought I could knock the book out this past winter, but I was too busy cutting wood.  I barely had enough time to take piss breaks.  I thought the spring would give a […]

  • $0.99

    The Event: The Amanai Resistance is now $0.99 on the Kindle!  Sorry, the paperback is still the same price.  It costs so much to print those.  The deal still stands if you buy the paperback, the Kindle version is free.  You might as well buy the Kindle version now.  You know you want to.  That’s […]

  • Finally… The Sun

    What a couple of sunny days can do to help lift one’s spirits.  Granted, being stuck inside work with no windows makes it difficult to see the sun.  Then again, if I had windows and could see the glorious weather, I wouldn’t want to be at work anymore.  It’s a double edged sword.  I’ll just […]

  • Busy-ass Weekend

    It has been one busy weekend.  I am sore as hell, but it will be nothing compared to tomorrow.  Literally a day before winter hit, the basement flooded because of the French drains at the footers.  It was a blessing in disguise in more than one way.  Firstly, it showed we had a major water […]

  • I’ll Take The Rain

    It has been raining for three days now.  I’m not going to complain though.  At this point, I’d rather have rain than snow.  One glorious outcome from all this rain is green grass.  We went from white and gray to brown to green.  The trees will be budding soon.  I’m not sure why, but I’m […]
