Writing vs. Cooking
My social media followers know my posts show them several aspects of my life. I hike and camp as much as I can. I voice political opinions. I take pictures. But two things dominate my social media presence: writing and cooking, and they are very similar. Let me explain...

And here's a picture of my dad, just because posts with images generate more traffic.

The first thing I made in the new mixer was butter. The second thing was this; it's cranberry nut bread, from a top secret recipe handed down to me by my spirit guide.

Gunslinger's Bargain, Ch. 4
In the pile of hay, under a wool blanket, I thought about the deal we’d made.

“You’re a gunfighter?” She’d asked. I looked up. Framed in the light of a window behind her, I couldn’t see her features, but I could see her form. She had curves, though it was c...

With Trump's loss in Iowa, I feel like the Doomsday Clock got a few seconds back.

To be honest, I didn't expect Trump or Sanders to win Iowa... Too large an evangelical base there. Trump is only conveniently religious whereas Cruz had been channeling his inner Robertson these days. Clinton, much like Trump, is only recently proud of her religiosity where Bernie almost as recently flat out said he's not a part of organized religion. Iowa becomes more and more irrelevant as the country becomes more secular. I was actually surprised at how close the Dem votes were, considering that fact. NH should be a good test of both sides, same with SC. The real surprise was Rubio doing so well for me. Though I'm not a fan, I was sure he was going to fair much worse.

I've been thinking a lot about this. If the 'militia' had been minority gang members, or growing pot on the land, or Muslims, do you think the government would have handled this the same? Those bad-ass bird sanctuary warriors are idiots.

But we are idiots too, for tolerating the double standards that the Constitution was designed to prevent.

Some countries, especially in the Caribbean, celebrate all beliefs and customs equally. They just want a reason celebrate, instead of hate.

Until we really embrace the values our country was founded on, things like this will not stop.

Gunslinger's Bargain, Ch. 3
We left the Andersons behind, and went to Abilene. She insisted I buy a suit of clothes there. Walking through town after dinner, her arm in mine, I was completely taken by her presence. Her soft jasmine scent wafted around me like delicate tendrils of smok...

Remember Christine Ha? That great MasterChef winner? I have her cookbook. This is my take on her meatloaf. I used carne asada and ground turkey for the meat, and topped it with turkey bacon. Served with mashed potatoes and broccolini.

1) Do you have a sourdough starter?
2) Would you like some?

I have a starter which was given to me by a friend who got it from his mom who has been maintaining it for over 30 years.

I've always been a big fan of +Google. I'm an early adopter of their tech, and have always touted them to everyone I see. I did the math once, and I've written over a million words on Chromebooks. I was so impressed with them, I went all in and bought a Pixel in November. And I've been so impressed with it, that I was already thinking about the Pixel-C for travel, and I've been really eyeing the Nexus 6P for my next phone. 

But that Pixel purchase... HUGE MISTAKE. Fifty-seven days after it was delivered, my thousand dollar machine started making a weird noise. They had me check guest accounts, disable this and that, and finally, I did a powerwash. Still get the noise. 

Two day of tech support later, they still had no idea what it was and told me to take a video of it and email it to them. No, it must be a video. An audio clip just won't do. We have to KNOW it's coming from YOUR machine. Fine, great, I'll handle it.

Except the attachment size for a file on Gmail is 30mb. Do you have any idea how short a video has to be to stay under 30mb. That didn't work. So I emailed them a link to sound on my drive. Here it is... https://goo.gl/pDD2Qv
Listen closely. There's either a kitten or a cricket. that purrs or chirps every five seconds, inside my wonderful, two-month-old, thousand dollar, supposed to be virtually silent, Chromebook Pixel.

Anyway, after a dozen phone calls with them, they are finally sending me a refurbished replacement for my two-month-old thousand dollar Chromebook.

And those other two Chromebooks in the house... the two-year-old Acer, and the one-year-old ASUS? Oh them? They are just fine. Alex and Lorelle love them. We've never had a problem with them, I just wanted to upgrade, even though loved ones rolled their eyes and said, "Don't do it."

Now let me ask you...
What do you think the chances are of me ever buying a Google branded product again?

I'm still pretty fond of my Acer 11, even more so than my Acer 13 (Intel Celeron > Tegra K1). I'm sorry for the mockery you've endured at the hands of the flagship.

I bleed words and put glitter on my butt for colonoscopies.
Introduction
Shawn Jones does not speak of himself in the third-person, because it is silly. But he is a hypocrite, so I wouldn't put it past me to do so anyway.
I write. Thanks to the support of family and friends, I finally chased this dream of bleeding (e)Ink and find myself remarkably happy. When I am not posting about my word-blood, you will find things like food, politics (and other forms of stupidity), science, and humor in my feed. 
Finally, I like my dog more than I like you, unless you buy my books. Then I like you just fine. But I still like my dog more. Thank you for helping me to buy stuff, though. You rock for that.
