Erica gets all of these alerts from It is a network of Yahoo groups mailing lists that people use to give stuff away, or in my case, get free stuff.

Once a day I get a forward from here with some tempting bit of free stuff. Mostly the good stuff is gone before she answers the message, but we’ve picked up one or two good things.

This is a Wanted message that appeared on Freecycle. Erica thought it was interesting, and so do I.

Wanted to keep or borrow.

Halloween decoration with motion sensor (the kind that moves or makes noise when you approach it).

I need to teach my husband a lesson about smoking in the attic behind my back. He quit but is having little relapses when he thinks I am sleeping.

This ought to scare the s_ _ t out of him. = )

It doesn’t sound like he really quit. All he did was stop smoking when his wife was looking. I am not sure the motion sensor will be much help.


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.
