Family and Friends is my everyday journal. Captain's Log is where I pontificate on religion and politics.

greetings from Nebraska

Visiting with Brother-in-law and family. Mother-in-law is not long for this life. Sister-in-law reading to her grandchildren.

Milford is a sleepy little town 25 miles from Lincoln.

They've been getting lots of rain, the really bad weather has been south of them.

Everyone seems to have beautiful flower gardens. They're waiting for warmer weather for the vegetable gardens.

Another prophet with egg on face

What about the Bible saying that no one knows the date and time do these idiots not get?
It's so easy for someone trying to make a name for themselves and attract non-thinking groupies to dream up a doomsday scenario and rake in the money.
Living a Christian life is a committment. Cheap Grace and sitting around waiting for the sky to fall in is only delusion.

Another one up

Super Erotic Bowl
Published another short story Tuesday and it's now ready to read on Amazon, B&N & Smashwords. At Smashwords it's free.

It's about a couple spicing up Superbowl XII between Dallas and Denver with a bet during and after the game.
This is a fun one and I enjoyed researching the game for the blow by blow.
Seems like only yesterday when they played that game.
To answer a pressing question, I wasn't married at the time and didn't meet Grinnygranny until the next year. This is purely imagination at work.

Busy busy busy

Monday I gave a presentation at Writers 2 Writers and using a projector demonstrated to the group how easy it was to publish e-stories. I published a story I worked on that day called Car Hop. I did a real simple powerpoint back ground and text for the cover art. It wasn't available until Thursday. I priced it at 0.00 on Smashwords.com. Amazon and Nook require it to be at least .99. It's now available on them too.

Since it's been published I've had over 250 looks and around 20 downloads on Smashwords. Telling how readers are looking for the free stuff. If I put enough of this out as free and people start recongizing my name maybe they'll be more willing to pay for it.

I dug my very first novel out of mothballs and have reworked it. I wrote it the summer of 1989 for Ted Turner's Tomorrow Award, naturally I didn't win. It's named Vander's Magic Carpet and is about the problems of getting the first flying car through all the political and legal hurdles for marketing. Science Fiction at the time, but I read recently there are four viable contenders ready to be put on sale within the next ten years.

The story's only 55,000 words long and I'm thinking about cover art while a few friends are reading so I'll get some peer review. I was surprised how well it held up over the years since I wrote it on an old 286 pc with no hard drive using Bank Street Writer and saving it on 51/4 in floppys. With each upgrade over the last 22 years I've saved it just in case, and guess what now it can see the light of day. When I publish it I'll price it a .99 just to get some feedback.

Touching words

Good friend at Private Buffoon posted his touching eulogy for his wife he delivered at her funeral last Wednesday.
