Book Review: "Dancing on the Wind" by M.C. Beaton
Dancing on the Wind by Sarah Chester My rating: 5 of 5 stars Moll Flanders, only not depressing. Would make an awesome Masterpiece Theater series. Whomever designed the cover for this (audio) edition should be fired, since this is a late 18th century settin...

Star Wars Memories
A long time ago, when science-fiction was kid
stuff, cinema and television were a vast wasteland relieved only occasionally
by the occasional Twilight Zone or Lost in Space. For the most part, if we
wanted sci-fi or fantasy we had to turn to novels by Heinl...

Adoption and Reunion, part 3: Ignoring the Wound
“Many doctors and psychologists now understand that bonding doesn’t begin
at birth, but is a continuum of physiological, psychological, and spiritual

period. When this natural evoluti...

Skype issues: Just acquired a nice dynamic mic and Tascam us-144 audio interface. I know the Tascam is old, but it seems to work fine. Had to jump through some hoops like downloading ASIO4all to tweak my sound card, and now the rig works fine with Soundbooth or Audition on Win10 and Win7 respectively...but on both machines I can still not get Skype to pick up the audio, even thought the dropdown menu gives me the Tascam as a choice for phones and mic. I can hear the Skype sounds (test call, etc.) but Skype does not pick up any audio whatsoever, despite both PCs hearing it just fine. Has this happened to anybody else, and if so what's the solution. I've been trying to solve this for a couple of days now.

"Darling Beast", by Elizabeth Hoyt
Don't judge this one by its cover! Darling Beast by Elizabeth Hoyt My rating: 5 of 5 stars I'm not a big romance reader, but I enjoy the occasional indulgence of one the same way I do the occasional rich, chocolaty dessert. Well, if it's it's good, anyway. ...

Start of Autumn
Autumn is just about here, and it's not fooling around. We could here it roaring in the distance this last Saturday, when a sudden storm blew in with gusts in the 50 mph range. It's been so bone dry, with only a couple of real rains all summer, that the Pug...

Last Days of Summer
It's the middle of August here in the Pacific Northwest, the East side of Puget Sound, to be exact. This afternoon around 5:30 I stepped outside to give the chickens some scraps, and instead of a blast of heat at the end of a blindingly sunny Summer day, I ...
