There has been a lot going on this week, so I thought I would bring you up to date on what’s been happening in our little corner of the world. The first thing, and it was disappointing news, is that Volusia County will not allow us to build the carport that we wanted to on […]

In yesterday’s blog, titled Walter, I told you about picking up an elderly gentleman I found walking along a highway on a snowy winter night back during my Army days. I said then that I used to pick up hitchhikers all the time, especially those in the military, and several of you left very nice […]

I didn’t quite make my goal of 5,000 words in my new book yesterday but I came close, somewhere around 4,250. I know, I’m such a slacker. Hopefully I can make up for that today. Someone said it has been a while since I have shown any of Miss Terry’s kitchen creations in the blog […]

When I was in college a journalism professor addressed the topic of media bias. He said that biased media is any media that disagrees with your point of view. Everyone had their own selective perspective, and if you disagree with them, you are obviously biased. A career in the small town newspaper business showed me […]

So far in my life, I have been a soldier, a small business owner, a small town newspaper publisher, and an author, to name just a few. And while I have enoyed all of those endeavors, in my next life, I want to be a karma deliveryman, serving up both the good and the bad […]

Thank you to everybody who expressed concern for our safety in the last couple of days, but as we expected, Hurricane Elsa was pretty much a non-event for us here on the central Florida coast. Sometime in the very early hours of Wednesday morning I woke up to the sound of rain coming down pretty […]

I was on a lot of Army bases during my time in the military, either getting basic and infantry training, or attending different schools and taking cadets from West Point to different bases for specialized schooling. And besides the olive drab vehicles, olive drab  uniforms, standard looking barricks and administration buildings, and close cropped haircuts, […]

Definition of potpourri – 1: a mixture of flowers, herbs, and spices that is usually kept in a jar and used for scent. 2: a miscellaneous collection. The second definition above pretty much describes today’s blog, a collection of miscellaneous thoughts and info that I’m sharing because I don’t have anything else to talk about […]

Every so often I contact some of my author friends to see if they have any e-books they are offering for free, and pass the information on to blog readers. Here is the latest batch, sure to give you some good reading Day Soldiers was selected by Digital Book Today as one of the Best […]

A Very Relaxing Day

Thank you to everybody who left comments, sent emails, or Facebook messages expressing concern about our unwelcome visitor Friday night. We are fine, just irritated by the fact that we have so many people like that in this world, running around bothering folks who are minding their own business and don’t want to be involved […]

Today’s Another Day

Yesterday was rather frustrating for me. Oh, who am I kidding? Let me correct that; yesterday was darned frustrating for me! I had planned to work on my new John Lee Quarrels book, but my computer didn’t like that idea and chose not to cooperate. For a while now it’s been running slow, not opening […]

I spent some time yesterday having an email conversation with a couple who are in their fourth year of fulltiming and said they feel like they are in a rut. Like all new fulltimers, when they started out they expected to be seeing new sites and having new adventures all the time, but in their […]

Yesterday afternoon I finished the new issue of the Gypsy Journal and then Terry spent several hours giving it a final proofing before I uploaded it to the printer’s web server last night. We have a few days to relax before it gets shipped back to us, so is it time to play yet? I […]
