The internet is full of people who get mad over the silliest of things. The most mind-boggling one I’ve seen recently is someone complaining about libraries of all things. A librarian friend posted the cartoon to the right, and he just went off. He started with the typical “who needs a library

A Look Back at National Writing Month…

At the beginning of the month, I set myself a modest goal. Write one post every weekday for the month of November, although I probably should have clarified “weekday” didn’t include the holiday. I missed three days of the month. Not great, but not horrible either. I had assumed the reason I

3D Printer Update

Back in April I told you about my new 3D printing hobby. I figure some of you might be considering giving a 3D printer as a gift this holiday, so an update might be helpful. Spoiler alert: I still love it. Modifications I’ve modified my printer since you’ve seen it last. The

5 on Friday: More Feel Good Stories

There are a lot of people scared and hurting right now. And I hate having to see my friends feel this way, knowing there’s nothing I can say to make them feel better. So I’m going to do the only thing I know how to do, provide distraction. So once again, here
