Who Are These People?

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

If I were easily influenced—OK, more easily influenced than I already am—I think I would find our modern world scary.  OK, more scary than it already is. For instance, a particularly insecure person—someone who needs constant affirmation of their friendships with other people—would seem to be incredibly vulnerable to this modern phenomenon—experienced by yours truly… Read more »

A Theory of Bonds

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

One of the curiosities of modern warfare and espionage is the British decision to make their most successful spy of the day known to the public.  Generally, spies are kept secret, with great care being taken to keep their covers from being blown. In the 1960s, however, the country of England (or Great Britain) decided… Read more »

Love Languages

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

My wife recently found a book about “discovering your love language”.  It is, from all reports (hers, anyway) a good book and is really opening her eyes.  Mine, too, by proxy and whether I want them opened or not. The premise of the book—I haven’t read it but I have had each paragraph discussed with… Read more »

Wanted: Naked People (?)

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

As a phenomenally unsuccessful author of several novels, I began to look into the matter and try to figure out why my books aren’t selling.

Like many of you, I became aware—whether I wanted to be or not—that royal wife Kate Middleton-Mountbatten (that’s what her last name would be in the normal world, right?) was quite possibly going to give birth this past weekend. I think the Middleton-Mountbatten-Windsors are just about as cute a couple as there is in the… Read more »

It has come to our attention that the mayor of New York City has taken it upon himself to tell people how much sugary soda water they can purchase on a given visit to the convenience store. Claiming he is only doing this for the benefit of his subjects—who are, he seems to think, too… Read more »

Let’s Not Do It Again

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

I’m listening to “Jack & Diane” by John “Used to Be Cougar” Mellencamp and thinking how glad I am that being 16 years old wasn’t actually the high point of my life! I remember a friend of mine in 10th grade who was lamenting no longer being in junior high.  Even at the time, it… Read more »

Summer Vacation 2013 (part 2)

Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Twice a year, I get a very nice magazine put out by the wonderful people at Vail Resorts.  In all honesty, I have only been to Vail (Colorado) once and the only part of the trip that sticks in my mind is that (I’m not kidding) while standing in the parking lot of the elementary… Read more »
