Drats, I didn’t win the Nobel Prize in literature. I was starting to brush up on my Swedish and Norwegian, reading etiquette books (I don’t want to act like a troglodyte when I am hobnobbing with royalty) and skiing magazines, watching naughty Scandinavian movies, and chewing Skoal tobacco. Maybe my dream of being a Nobel […]

There are some times in which I am not as honest as Abraham Lincoln. Several weeks ago, I said I was going to blog more often. However, I have concentrated so much time on writing projects that blogging has been put on the back burner. Besides, I have been busy with projects around the house […]

For the past couple of months, I have not spent too much time on my soapbox. As my good friend Al Tureegogh would say, so what’s up, Joe? Because of the pandemic, I have been furloughed from my job. Consequently, I have been spending lots and lots time writing. I have been writing a plethora […]

This post is on hiatus again. I am not going on spring break like millions of college students; instead, I believe the time is right to take a break from the written world. Besides, with the coronavirus pandemic spreading across the world, there are more serious things to worry about than chugging out blog posts. […]
