Remembering Ms. Linda

June 27, 2019

A career COP I tend to be apprehensive of people when I first meet them; they’re all suspects until proven otherwise. While I jest (mostly) that is a topic best suited for another day. Every now and then you meet someone whose soul shines through, and you know you are in the presence of goodness. If… Read More ›

1K to go a Week with no Smart Phone?

The company, Frontier Bundles an authorized retailer of internet service provider Frontier Communications is offering just that, one-grand, a thousand smackeroos to not use your smartphone. It’s not like you have to cut yourself off either, you get to use an old fashion flip phone during that time, all one-hundred-sixty-eight-hours of it during which time presumably you’ll be asleep… Read More ›


Hoping this doesn’t sound like a rant. I’ll start off by fully disclosing that I do use social media occasionally, primarily Facebook and Twitter. I’m by no means anti-posting, tweeting, or whatever floats your boat. Hell, I’m pretty libertarian so I don’t care what you do if it’s on your own time with your own money in… Read More ›

If you are familiar with either of my “Devolution” books then you may be familiar with “IRL” which is what all the kids (and adult gamers) use as shorthand for “In Real Life.” Reading my books, social media postings, or following this blog probably has made you aware that skiing, and teaching others to ski is… Read More ›

Non-Geek iPhone 8 Plus Review

First off, I am not an anti-geek. In fact, if anything I am probably sort of a geek-wanna-be but years ago I fell so far behind the learning curve of all things technological that well, frankly I just will never catch up. I’ve accepted that I will forever remain locked out of the wizardry of the newest tech-magic…… Read More ›

My Writing Season

To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven: A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, a time to reap that which is planted; A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to… Read More ›

“Devolution: Level Up” Video Blurb

Most recent creation and addition to my video book blurbs! “Devolution: Level UP”


Thought I would add some video content to this site. I will probably create a separate video page for these or place them on the books page, that is as soon as I get this new-fangled internet thingy figured out…
