For the last month or so, every so often when I would turn on my Dell desktop computer, it would not fully boot up. It would start the process and then go to a blank screen. Usually when that happened it would take two or three attempts before the computer would finally come on. Then, […]

Neither one of us was particularly hungry when we got up yesterday, so Miss Terry had some leftover blueberries and blackberries, and the extra pie crust dough left over from the peach galette that she mixed with some jam and made these delicious fried pies for brunch. The crust was light and flaky, and they […]

I’m more of a McDonald’s kind of guy, though I have ventured into Burger King more than once in my life. And yesterday, we got a Whopper without even leaving the house. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the kind you eat, it was a whopper of a thunderstorm. It was late in the afternoon, and I was […]

Every parent wants to raise children who become adults they can be proud of. Adults that they can look at and say to themselves with a smile of self-satisfaction, “Yeah, that’s my kid!” Unfortunately, I don’t do that.

Sometimes, no matter what you plan, life gets in the way. Yesterday was a good example. I really wanted to get a minimum of 5,000 words done in my new John Lee Quarrels book, Sweet Tea And Jesus. But as it turned out, that wasn’t going to happen. When I sat down at my desktop […]

Yesterday was rather frustrating for me. Oh, who am I kidding? Let me correct that; yesterday was darned frustrating for me! I had planned to work on my new John Lee Quarrels book, but my computer didn’t like that idea and chose not to cooperate. For a while now it’s been running slow, not opening […]

Because I have arthritis in my hands, typing can become painful after a while for me. So two years ago I bought Dragon NaturallySpeaking software, and it has really increased my ability to churn out a lot of words in a day. I’m a two finger typist at best, and on a good day I […]
