How does an election year affect what I post? Good question.

“Should I write about politics?” I asked myself. Beave said, “Yes, but be very careful.” I don’t always trust his decisions, especially when it comes to dealing with people. He’s okay at hunting camp or in the woods, or at a party, but his social skills need work.I did take his advice on this one, this one time. If anyone has …

Why I Love Science

  When I was seven, we lived in a remodeled chicken coup. My parents paid twenty dollars a week for rent. One year after attending a book fair at my grade school, I begged them to let me join a book club where I would receive a book a month and a model of the lunar module. My uncle and …

Just a regular, working guy

  As you know I bounce weekly blogging ideas off my associates at work. I ask, “What do you want to know about?” I know nothing about the Ebola crisis; I don’t take political stands in public. So what do I know enough to write about? I love the natural sciences and like to educate people who might not be …

“namdaM a fo yraiD”

“What to Hell does this mean?” you ask. This is the tentative title of my next book. “Why is the title written backwards in mirror image?” Because I can write mirror image and always wondered how I could make a buck on such a strange bar-room trick. Now I think I have found a way. I have a story about a …

Past the totem pole, turn right…

Last weekend my wife Charlene and I went down to Blue Mountain to attend the Adirondack Center for Writing’s Literary Awards. Set in the middle of the Adirondack park, the venue couldn’t be more beautiful. Fifty one authors showed their work in front of some of the most skilled writers in New York State. Though my submission didn’t win, I did meet several …

I must write.

Once again I am pondering a career in writing. I prefer to be lazy and play poker online, but after many post about climate change, evolution and reality, I must write again. The United States of America does not understand how the universe works. I don’t get it all either, but must share what I do. This global warming/climate change …

Hunting and trapping are personal, back to science.

  Once again I am writing to vent. The subject is Global Warming/Climate Change, or the lack there of.   Many of my friends and co-workers are Al Gore haters. As somewhat of a tree hugger, I must stand my ground, not to defend the former Vice President, but to try to teach them what I have learned about how …

New writing subject

As I mentioned in my other blog I am changing writing subjects for the time being. Fall finds me in the woods taking part in most of the outdoor sports. I enjoy the taste of wild game and spend most of my free time chasing it. Seldom lucky, I eat a lot of hot dogs. Trapping, a dying skill is …

Should I create another blog?

Last night I sat in the same stand I have three times in a row. This is against what I believe, but the beech nuts are dropping, and we did have a strong wind here last night. I knew the deer would be feeding on the abundance of mast. In fact I expected lots of other animal activity because of …

Taking a sabbatical.

What is a Sabbatical? Many professionals like professors, teachers, doctors and writers take them to get away to do some kind of research pertaining to their field of study, or just to put all their effort into achieving a goal. Usually this break is followed by a publication of some sort. Before a request is made for paid Sabbatical Leave, a proposal for …
