Took new glasses back to Wal-Mart Vision Center

Last Friday I picked up my new glasses at the local Wal-Mart Vision Center. I was really excited because it had taken a very long time for me to actualy get the glasses after I got the eye exam and ordered them.

Unfortunately, I had had a very long and stress-filled day and just […]

How to invoke evil spirits

Books have a long history of being banned, even burned because of the views that people have about them.

In 2001 the Christ Community Church in Alamagordo, NM burned copies of Harry Potter, along with other books and magazines, because the books were claimed to be “a masterpiece of satanic deception.” Among the books […]

Working on my novel

I’ve got back to working on my novel with determination that I will finish the thing. I mean, hey, I am sitting at over 52,000 words of extreme rough draft writing, 59 scene cards on two bulletain boards, and over half a notebook worth of scene by scene outline […]

On one of my quick forrays out to the shed, to try to see if I can salvage things and fix the roof before winter hits, I found the old shoe storage bag that I had once kept my quilt fabrics in back when I lived in the […]

Where did the summer go?

When I was a child I loved summer. Not because it meant not going to school, most of my life I stayed home rather than going to school. It was not some sort of home schooling trend or anything, it was simply a case of the schools I had attended proved to be rather […]

Nora Roberts vs Plagiarism

I came across something on Twitter this evening that caught my attention.

I went looking for what was up and made my way to Nora Roberts’ website where I found that she had made not a rant, but a promise a few days ago.

Writers are aware of the dangers of others plagiarizing […]

The Black Hole

Scientists have finally managed to get a picture of a black hole.

France Córdova, director of the National Science Foundation, at a Washington, D.C., news conference said, “We’ve been studying black holes so long, sometimes it’s easy to forget that none of us have actually seen one.”

It really is an amazing advancement that will […]

Why were hundreds of children slaughtered in Peru in the 1400’s?

In reading the headlines of my Science email this morning one headline both repelled me and kept drawing me back to it.

Ancient slaughter of 140 children marks largest child sacrifice in the Americas

It was a chilling headline and accompanied in the email by the image of two small skeletons laying in shallow […]

The Periodic Table

I came across an intriguing headline in my daily Science headlines email this morning.

Yes, it seems that, among other milestones, 2019 marks the 150th anniversary of what I am going to guess is the most popular poster in any science geek’s lab. The periodic table.

Science has a page that gives a visual […]
