So there was that guy that you killed. You wanted to say that there were a bunch of people alive today who wouldn’t have been, but for you, but then you realized you put down that headset twenty-odd years ago. Long enough ago that you not only don’t remember the day, but you’re not even […]
I’m finding myself more and more fascinated lately with people almost lost to history. It’s hard to remember, at times, that everyone who ever lived, lived. He wondered if he would ever see her again. But who was he? Am I talking about the Egyptian King Iry-hor? He’s the oldest person whose name we know, […]
I googled this, in quotes, and got: So hey, I might drum up some random traffic.
Case A: “If you move, I swear to God, I will shoot you!” Assuming that the speaker is a Christian (and between 70 and 80% of Americans are, so it’s a safe, if not ironclad assumption), they’re probably in a bit of trouble with God, as Matthew 5:34 teaches us that Christians aren’t supposed to […]

Look, kid, teppanyaki cooking’s got very little to do with cooking. If you done your job right, the guests’ll never notice how […]
Right, got to get something up here even though I’m pretty stymied in my writing these days. This is from quite a few years ago, when I was obviously heavily under the influence of the good doctor, and more or less really happened. . . .and when the furniture started shaking and I heard […]
Well, this blog isn’t all that old, and when I started it I promised I’d update every Monday. I’ve been pretty good about that promise, but there are some family health issues going on that are taking up a lot of my time. I’ll be updating when I’m able, and notifying (both) of my readers […]
