2019 according to The Amazing Sleeping Man

Wow, what a year!  I can not believe we were able to cram two-months of activities into twelve months.  Yep, pretty slow year here, not sure where it went but I know it was not adrenaline-filled. Snowboarding/skiing got off to a slow start, then some big storms rolled in and it was powder nirvana.  We…

The Real Clockers

Did you know clock maintainers actually exist? Yes, right here on Old Earth, right now, there are people working every day, all day, all year (24/7/365 in military terms) around the world to maintain clocks. Specifically, atomic clocks. Why, you ask? Because timing really is everything. For example, millions of online bank and credit card…

Operation Warrior Sanctuary

Earlier this year, a wonderful thing happened. A generous soul, who wishes to remain anonymous, donated a Montana land lease with a campground and many buildings called Camp Ponderosa, to the Northwest Montana Veteran’s Food Pantry and Standdown organization.

Guest Post

One of the other wonderful authors in The Expanding Universe 5 anthology, Lawrence Schoen, has an amazing blog called Eating Authors. He asks each author a deceptively easy question: “What’s your most memorable meal?” Check out my answer here. (Notice the new pic with Zoe!) Then go read the rest–he’s interviewed a lot of fabulous and…

A wild trek for the last wild shots

  Last Saturday, Seb and I hiked up to the Fisher research site we’ve been caring for to dismantle it and bring back all the equipment. It was pleasantly warm–the mid-50s F–but rainy, so we were in rain pants and jackets most of the way. There was still quite a bit of snow on the…

A new member of Scott Space

Welcome our new pack member, Zoe! Isn’t she adorable? She’s twelve weeks old and a bundle of energy. Zoe loves tug of war, chasing balls, digging and playing in the water. The water thing surprised us–none of our other German Shepherds liked water at all. Since she’s still very much a puppy, my writing has…
