Last spring my furnace burned up and was just luck that I got up in the middle of the night and smelled the burning electrical. I turned it off and this summer tore out the old furnace and bought a new one.

Typically, I procrastinated and I didn’t start installing the new furnace until three weeks ago. I’ve been taking off Fridays and working most of the weekend on piping. Here is $400 worth of copper (left).

I bought 3 cords of wood. When I stacked it, it came to less than two cords so I called the guy. He delivered another truck load, but it is still short of 3 cords. (image right.)

I installed a Jøtul #6 wood stove in my house when I bought it in 1978. It has worked well for almost 30 years, although it has loosened up a little and is not as efficient. I like it because you can open it up and use it as a fireplace. It looks like a large gnome sitting in the dining room.

Here for the cat lovers is Gracie inspecting the new wood pile.


Buy the Book!

I cleaned up my tab for Sonny Boy's Help Me and made it into a short book. There's a Kindle version for 99 cents, and if you buy the paperback you get the Kindle free.

Playing "Help-Me" In the Style of Sonny Boy Williamson II: A step by step, note for note analysis of some of Sonny Boy's Signature Riffs

I also write Science Fiction, so you can sample some of my best stories. Also available in Kindle format.

I started reading Science Fiction in the 1950s. I started Writing SF in the 1960s. Then, I had a life. Now I am retired, raising chickens and keeping bees. I am still an avid reader and I have sold about 70 stories in the last 20 years.
I have been collecting information about writing Science Fiction for many years now. Social media has replaced the Blog and large dedicated websites, so the pages here are mostly static. I update them from time to time.
