Just doodles and stuff

One of the reasons I wanted a Note 8 in replacement for my Note II is the stylus pen that comes with it.  That’s because I also have apps like Painter, Art Canvas, Paper Artist, and Pixlr. So, for instance, … Continue reading

A few hours in Kailua Kona

As mentioned in the last post, I’ve been editing stuff. Specifically, my last novel. Yes, I have it in mind sending it out into the wild and see if it can hook an agent. I’m not holding my breath, but one … Continue reading

So, here we are at Part 2 and we’re facing another dilemma. Should I plan on Part 3 or try and squeeze in 85 more photos and 7 more videos all in this post?  Well, since I won’t post all … Continue reading
