8 inches of wet sloppy snow

Trees are coming down with cracks like rifle shots all over the place. It sounds like a war zone. There are branches down on the trucks, although they look like the heavy weight hit the ground first. There are branches down in the driveway, but I think I could get out in an emergency. The […]

Pete Seeger, Woody Guthrie, Sonny Terry, Brownie McGee

Excellent Alan Lomax documentary film featuring Pete Seeger. About halfway through Woody Guthrie Jams with Sonny Terry and Brownie McGee. Very cool stuff and worth watching. I miss folk music and I hope it comes back soon.

Gene sequencing X Prize to focus on centenarians

If you have read Heinlein’s Methuselah’s Children, you know that one way to improve life expectancy is to concentrate on genetics. Some people live longer because they inherited genes for long life. Some people die young because of their genes. Heinlein’s book is about a society in the future that uses human husbandry to breed […]

Finny Moon

I wrote a story based on the kind of conversations that we have playing poker. These poker players are all fishermen waiting for a fourth player to return with his catch. He brings back something strange from the depths of the sea. It’s not so straightforward horror, with a humorous twist. I submitted it to […]

Clarkstown broke deal to keep land open space

In Central Nyack there is a stream that flows down from the hills above the village. The stream originates on park property and then flows through the land we always called Blake’s and then down to Buttermilk Falls. Growing up, this was MY territory. I traced that stream all the way back to a swampy […]

Too Many Damn Cats

I moved the Cat blog. It used to be at BlogsEyeView, but I am thinking about a project that will need a good domain name. The cat blog was languishing. I can make a fresh start here and not think about the cats that I miss. Too Many Damn Cats.

Cape Cod

I cleaned out the camera and found some pictures of Cape Cod from June. This was a beautiful beach that we found by accident. I recorded it in my GPS so that we could find it again.

Picking Apples

We drove up to Red Hook, NY and picked some amazing apples. With all the rain the apples are the size of grapefruit. On the way back, the thruway was backed up so we took a detour and wound up at a covered bridge. This is the one you can see from the thruway going […]


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.
