My Lizzie

A personal note: For those of you who are not on my facebook friends list, my wife Elizabeth (my Lizzie) was admitted to the Baxter Regional Medical Center Saturday evening.

I Remember Mama

I Remember Mama is a classic movie from 1948 (the year I was born) starring Irene Dunne. It was also a television series dating back to 1949. I don’t recall seeing the movie growing up, but I do remember watching the TV series. It was one of my mother’s favorite TV shows. It was about... Continue Reading →

The Barbarian

According to the Oxford English dictionary, the origin of the word barbarian is from “Late Middle English (in barbarous (sense 2)): via Latin from Greek barbarous ‘foreign’ + -ous.” Since I am technically a foreigner in America, that makes me a barbarian. I also am a barbarian by ancient heritage. I am descended from one... Continue Reading →

A Little Sunshine and a Lot of Hope

My son Michael is a very serious gamer. The reason he is a serious gamer is because I got him hooked on gaming back when he was six years old. I started Michael out on Warcraft II and there's been no stopping him since. Michael loves to play games, design games, review games, read reviews,... Continue Reading →

An Update On

My Christian Heresy site was hacked on Wednesday by what appears to be a group of religious fundamentalists. What particular religion they are fundamental about is really not important. I dislike all fundamentalists, religious or secular. For some reason that I do not understand since I do not criticize anyone's religious beliefs or single out... Continue Reading →
