From Canada? Want to go to the U.S.A.? Better have the right vaccine

The last couple of years have been hard on Canadian Snowbirds. Many of us, myself included, are used to heading south in the fall, to escape the icy bullshit of a Canadian winter. Unfortunately, thanks to COVID-19, a lot of us have been trapped, north of the wall, since March 2020. I've been fine with this. When… → Read More

You can finish these crime novels in a single day

I was once told by an English teacher that long books are strong books. It kind of smacked of bullshit, It tastes like a mouthful of it now. Don’t get me wrong: there’s nothing wrong with a good, long read. I needed to pack a month’s worth of provisions to climb to the top of… → Read More

So, who's down for the second Season of The Witcther?

Apparently, between my day job and writing a novel, I have managed to live in a cave, far from the realm of fandom and the geeky stuff that I love. Netflix is set to drop the second season of The Witcher on December 17th. As I generally steer clear of YouTube unless I'm looking… → Read More

My Life on the Road: Metrics and Mindfulness

The campground we wintered at here on Vancouver Island was flat. You want that, when you’re dealing with larger RVs and fifth wheel trailers. What might seem a gentle grade to someone in a car or a 20-foot long motor home can tear the front or ass end right out of a larger rig, like… → Read More

My Life on the Road: Losing it

A toast to frozen margaritas: 50 years young

My hands-down, favorite drink of all time is a zombie. Unfortunately, precious few bars that I've run across in my travels stock all of the hooch required to make one.
