Alive in 2013
Being alive in 2013 has meant embracing the worst case scenario. To be honest, on the grand scale, this year didn't have a lot to recommend it. Politically this country seems to have slipped a gear. Yeah, I know that this isn't the first time the government...

Second in my year-end posts. Today: Movies.
Few of the movies I saw this year, except for Gravity and Captain Philips are going to make the Oscar Best Film list. Most of what I saw were science fiction, horror, or comic book movies. I enjoyed them, but they were not wh...

What I heard in 2013
This will be the first in a series of year-end posts about what I'll remember this year for. I'll start today with music, and work my way through books, movies (and television shows), and overall experiences. As far as music goes, I have to say this was an ...

If you subscribed you can read it and review it on the site's Facebook page. If you didn't subscribe it'll be available next week and I think if you work fast you might even be able to quick subscribe today and have them sent it out. No promises;)

What I read in 2013
I had a kind of mission this year to read at least five books written in 2013. I nearly made it. I'm embarrassed to say I haven't had a chance to pick up the wonderful conclusion of Chris Holm's Collector series, "The Big Reap," which is why is not included...

This question needs to be asked more frequently: exactly how safe and at what cost?
 
After a ten year survey of the TSA, the results are in.

The main problem is security measures which are mainly cosmetic, or actually reduce safety. The risk of death or injury through terrorism is absurdly low, but the health risks of (say) forcing amputees to remove their prostheses are real. You can avoid the high-energy scanner if you submit to a Freedom Fondle, but the cancer rate for actual TSA agents is very concerning.

Introduction
Writer and teacher. I post about things that make me glad I do both. I share things I haven't seen before.

At the moment I am trying to get published as a speculative fiction short story writer. My blog: Ancient Logic, includes examples of my work as well as a record of my slow progress towards that goal.

"Slant Space" is the name of my second novel.

I've been waiting for years for a place like this near my town. Great atmosphere, delicious strong coffee, and terrific baristas. Just in time for the summer!

I'd recommend because of the outdoor patio overlooking water street and the drinks. The food was basic, not bad but nothing to write home about.

Good food and efficient waiting staff. We went there on a Monday and encountered a pretty significant line. Portions are filling without being overwhelming.

I liked this place, good selection of books, especially the local interest section, and the cafe is spacious and yet somehow comfortable. This is the kind of place I wish my hometown had.

Decent selection of breakfast dishes. I ordered a French toast made out of blue corn which was two wedges of bread with apple syrup, delicious but not the biggest portion. My wife ordered a short stack of pancakes and was presented with something like the bottom two layers of a wedding cake.

Knowledgable and friendly owner pointed me in the direction of local artists. Good selection for a smaller store.

Cool spot to find southwestern jewelry, pottery, and craft items. Helpful staff, great prices, and nice quality.
