Drone on and on…

I’ve been wanting a “drone” for ages now.  I hesitate to call most of what we think of as drones “drones” because, in fact, they are rarely truly autonomous except for brief moments if they lose contact with their radio controller and lower themselves to the ground.  The average American consumer is not purchasing predators…

Money Changes Everything

This message brought to you by “Rogue Mission”, and the letters F, U, and the numbers 2012, and 42… ———————– We’ve keep going through these “historic” election cycles.  It seems since 1992 every election has been called “historic”.  Electing Clinton:  HISTORIC!   The Republicans taking over in 1996 with their Contract on America:  HISTORIC!!  The contentious…

A Bad Day is a Good Story

So it’s been a bit of an uneven week.  By uneven, I mean great heaping piles of it have blown chunks, the sort of steaming pile of excrement useful for fertilizing dead soil and making it deader. It started when I re-read the ending of the novel.  Ugh.  It really was a hot mess.  Better…

Ch Ch Ch Ch, Changes…

I had forgotten how much time you can sink into a website.  Even though I’m using WordPress, which makes building and modifying a website pretty damn easy for anyone with a modicum of technical aptitude (computer aptitude, not “rebuilding a small block V8” aptitude), there are still tons of things you can tweak and change,…

Old School Cool

I have realized beyond a shadow of any reasonable doubt that I am decidedly old school.  I resist the temptation to say simply old, because I do make an effort to keep up with current trends in the arts, music in particular, and technology.  Being an IT tech has meant constantly updating my skills to…

Day One: And yet it rains…

The great floods of 2015 are upon us, and we have been deluged with rain for five days straight now.  Not quite the biblical forty days and forty nights, but perhaps enough to back up the sewers.  Thankfully we’re on a septic system, so at least we’ve got that going for us. I started writing…
