Sure, I'm in Denver but I'll use any excuse to fire up the smoker  7# of wings, dry rubbed and slow cooked

Roughly 3 years ago I launched Mithril and Mages with little direction.  Today, it has over 50,000 unique visitors per month.   The one thing I did that bridges across writers, game players, and curiosity seekers is the City Name Generator.     

I suck at names so I made my life easy.  Now it has a life of its own.   

+Google+  could you provide an "All Circles" button in addition to your "All".   The former should be what I want to see rather the latter being your filtered beliefs of what I might be interested in.   

Unless you want to be Facebook.   Where I can only see what you choose for me.  

I'm specifically here to see each and everything the people I chose, choose to post. I want everything they do or did.   I do not want it filtered.  I want them, crazy, awesome, amazing, or tired.   I chose them.   

Screw algorithms.  

Stop choosing for me.  It is annoying.

Finally finished my automated, over-sized, redneck cat feeder for the barn cats.  Little bit of welding, little wood work, and a token amount of programming and electronics was involved.   

Been getting a bunch of new circles.   Just to make you reconsider, I'm anti-social, chaotic, and easily annoyed.  I don't post much.   When I do, its generally gaming materials of some such nature.  If you can live with that....

Why is it that people just want to be argumentative and exploit everything?  It is not simply an Internet response.   People identify with being someone who argues even when they don't disagree with the premise.  That attitude is  so foreign to me.   

Woot!   Finally a good pop-up reminder on the calendar.   Time to bottle my caramel apple mead.   It has been bulk aging for six months.   I'll get a sample amid the bottling process.   I'm hoping its drinkable by the October time frame.

Life is simpler without the bleating email alerts, the upward counting red box, etc.   Big skies and less lights call.  


Awesome dude of the day is +Sean Cowen.  He lead me down paths I would not have traveled   I've found artists, gaming people, and many other fine people due to his influence.  

Thanks Sean.  Much appreciated.
