Google Pagerank 4!!!

The blog is now PR 4. I know you could care less, so I made the main page entry on the root blog. This is a big deal for me. It was a goal that I started working on about two months ago and all of the work has paid off. The book blog, the […]

Middle Earth Stumbleupon on the average is sending a click every 10 seconds to the middle earth map on the main page. I know this because I wrote a WordPress plugin that lets me watch the traffic, pretty much in real time. I should get about 1000 users today if this keeps up for very long This […]

Progress Converting to WordPress

The Root directory here is nearly converted to WordPress. It has taken up my spare time here and even at home. I have the Bee Blog, the Book Reviews, and the Star Directory Pages to convert, but I am not sure how I should do this. There is version of WordPress that handles multiple […]

Fall Foliage

Erica and I went galavanting up to Ulster and Columbia Counties Sunday to enjoy the color of the changing leaves. This 200 year old church had some beautiful golden yellow maples in the graveyard. I took some pictures of a beautiful faded blue barn and outbuildings. There was a corn field. More colorful trees. A […]

Dinner at Hatties in Saratoga Springs

While up in Saratoga Springs for a guitar show. I was hungry. I asked a few people where was the best place to eat in town and it didn’t take long for the consensus to be obvious. I had to go to Hattie’s and get the fried chicken. Hatties is on Phila Street and has […]

Writing Book Reviews " How and Why

Bill Ward over at Black Gate has a good article on writing book reviews. It is interesting that he distinguishes between writing a book review and a book report. I have always tried to avoid writing the plot summary flavor of book report. I have been writing my opinions on the books that I read. […]

1and1 Hosting problems

I have been making some small amount of money off of pages based on eBay rss feeds. In the last 24 hours or so 1and1 disabled an important function that allowed these apps to work. It looks to cost me a few hundred a month so it is time to change hosting companies. This is […]

Sell on Good News

I worked for almost 15 years at Lockheed Martin. I still have some Lockheed stock form those days. This morning Lockheed Martin announced better than expected earnings and the stock dropped 4 and half points. I know that this is no unexpected. Stocks go up on bad news and down on good news, but that […]


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.
