I'm not anti apple...I am a lover of good looking watches though. .. this thing is selling out, and to me it's hideous! I'm sure it works wonderfully, their products do, but god, I can't see how people like the aesthetics!

Square watches are tough to look good and this one doesn't do it in my opinion. Do people really like the look? Or is it the appleness of it?

Writing my blog for the past 2+ years has kept many of my memories fresh, but over time led to a theme that's stuck in my head. Going to try to make a story out of it, how far it goes remains to be seen, but think I can get a short novel or novella out of it. Concept is encapsulated in this small excerpt.
January "Why don't you come live with us, Dad? Why do you stay?" Its a familiar refrain, heard many times. He can't move as fast as he once could, time and work have made the joints and muscles slower than they were, his face still glows though, leathery from years of sun and outdoor toil, but...

Some people asked about getting the blog printed. While I can't do that, I did make an eBook version.  Price is just to cover cost of software to produce.
