No, I’m not talking about that show with the nerdy scientists and the hot blonde chick, this was another kind of big bang. I had just finished proofing the last couple of chapters I wrote in my new book Big Lake Wedding yesterday afternoon about 2 PM and decided to go out and check the […]

My e-mail inbox kept filling up yesterday, and I can’t count the number of texts and Facebook messages I received from people, either telling me that the mail forwarding service My Dakota Address in Madison, South Dakota had stopped sending mail as of the 26th and announced that they were going out of business, or […]

Well, I had hoped that by now Steve the computer would be a piece of gutted history collecting dust on a shelf in the garage, or better yet on its way to a recycling place or wherever condemned computers go when they die. But Steve’s going to get a reprieve, at least for a little […]

Yeah, I know that some of my friends call me Gadget Boy because I like techno toys. But at the same time I hate technology. Okay, let me restate that, I hate technology when it doesn’t work. And it seems like around me, anything more than a flashlight is too technical and is going to […]

Well, okay not the whole gang, but a lot of our pals are here at the Orlando Thousand Trails preserve or are headed this way. Yesterday afternoon Jim and Chris Guld from Geeks on Tour arrived, and they came by to visit for a while during the evening. I always enjoy picking their brains, because […]

Anybody who knows me well already knows that I require adult supervision at all times. Left to my own devices, there is no end to the trouble I can get into, and I don’t have to look far to find it. So you can blame Miss Terry, or Greg White, or Ron Speidel for what […]

Yesterday I came down with a serious case of lazy and did not accomplish one thing all day long. And I don’t even feel guilty about it! There were a lot of things that I should have been doing, including working on my new Big Lake  book, but I just couldn’t get myself motivated. I […]

Several readers have written to tell me that they have not been able to access my daily RV blog lately.The problem has me, Greg White, and Chris Guld from Geeks on Tour mystified, because a lot of readers are still reading the blog with no problem, and none of us have experienced the issue.

In spite of my buddy Greg White’s misgivings about our switch to Mac computers (see his The Gates Of Hell blog post), we are already getting the feel for our new iMacs, and I have to tell you, Terry and I are both very impressed! I used to always think of Mac fans as almost […]

Thank you to everybody who left comments or sent e-mails hoping I would get well soon. I think I’ve finally turned the corner, and I may live after all. But there was a while there when only the hope of death was keeping me alive! Except for my allergy to onions and my bad back, […]
