Yep, there's nothing quite so upsetting and life changing as a good old fashioned head on collision.  That car you see there in the picture, yeah, that's what's left of my car after being hit by a guy head on while traveling across an icy bridge.  The short story is, we were bo ... View More

Keywords: God, Humor, Story, Dream, Funny

God has such an interesting sense of humor. Was taking a nap earlier today, and during it I had this short dream segment about cleaning out my dad's barn of things that didn't need to be there. Ie, things that didn't need to be around and should've gone away a long time ago. Long sto ... View More

Keywords: Story, History, Family, Odd Heirlooms, Old Stuff, The New Guy, Replacements, Soap

It's kinda funny the little things you notice in life. Especially the changes you see unfold around you. For example, years ago mom and I came to an agreement that, since we were sharing the same apartment, and we both had nearly identical things (ie, forks, spoons, plates, living room stuff, et ...

Thanks in part to Disqus, I now have the ability to do voting on articles, books and anything else with the Disqus commenting app included on it.  As a result of this, I will be phasing out my old voting system as it's no longer needed anymore, and it's kinda long in the tooth anyways.& ...

Well, in an amazing turn of events, I was able to push out my Storyland Articles anthology a lot faster than I was expecting, and I've now been able to complete it and begin the process of pushing it out for publication much sooner that originally planned, which is a good thing, as it means I ...

Thought For The Day: How To Fix Stupid And Drive Out A Malicious Spirit

Keywords: Prayer, Friendship, Compassion, Malice, Stupid, People, Blessing, Wisdom

Thought for the day: While talking with a friend about a rather controversial topic, his comments sparked a thought in my mind about an old saying that we all use very callously, haphazardly and far, far too often. What phrase is that? "You can fix ignorant, but you can't fix stupid.&quo ... View More

For those of you who've noticed that my blog suddenly got quiet, it's because I took a full month off from writing, and just spent the time recovering, decompressing, clearing my mind, and that ever so elusive action of actually resting for a change.  I know, right?  Who actually r ... View More
