Writing forces me to examine my views as cold words on a page.
My views are borne out of my experiences on this world.
My experiences are slowly adding to the short story that is my life.
While I still can, I choose to share some for anyone who might find them useful, or perhaps just entertaining.

Hmm . . . as I post links to my 2014 review, I’m sorely tempted to at least try a short (ha!) review of 2018. In contrast, THIS is not a short review of 2014’s second quarter of Disperser posts. But, if … Continue reading
The end of the year came and went . . . and it’s now unlikely I’ll do a “looking back” type post for 2018 . . . but, if I did, it might look like what it looked like at … Continue reading
I write reviews of a movie for either of two reasons . . . one, I hated it and want to share all my reasons for why I feel bitter about having wasted a portion of my short life on … Continue reading
I’m someone who likes movies . . . most of the time. However, movies require an inordinate investment of time (and it keeps getting longer . . . these days, well past two hours). What makes watching a bad movie … Continue reading
I might have mentioned that I used to write for Slice of SciFi. By the way, that’s the only — as far as I know — Wikipedia article that has my name in it. And I didn’t know it until … Continue reading
Living in Colorado presented unique (in my limited experience) opportunity for interesting treatments of everyday things . . . like fog icing up on things (HERE). It may have looked neat but it had a byproduct that could be absolutely … Continue reading
There was a time when I had a lot of houseplants. Over the years (starting when we moved to Colorado) I gradually weaned down to just a few. The primary reason was gnats. Many plants I had lived part of … Continue reading
I’m sitting on the bathroom stool at our hotel room. Don’t worry; no business being done – the lid is down so it would be a tad messy if it were. Nope; I’m in here because Melisa (who is now … Continue reading
I’m back from my blackout dates and hopefully, have a day or two to schedule a number of these posts. As some might know, I’m sick. Not in a mental way (although some might claim so) and not in a … Continue reading
While in the ship, there are contests involving chefs and bartenders. One is the ice carving (which I missed) and others involved mixing drinks (which I didn’t care about) and one was food creations using fruits and vegetables. I gotta … Continue reading
Would you believe I’m writing this post on January 2nd? I scheduled a bunch of posts because I was unsure of the quality of the Internet I might encounter on the ship. Previous experience showed me I’m better off just … Continue reading
So, I broke down and scheduled a doctor visit for tomorrow morning. But, this afternoon, we walked 0.7 miles to the San Diego Old Town and ate at the Coyote Cafe. That’s the same Cafe we ate at before our … Continue reading
I found THIS place interesting. I believe this was the first major trip where I used the Nikon D100, my first digital camera. A new world opened up to me. And now, the photo: Did I mention we had a … Continue reading
So, we had decided to do a Fort Lauderdale Land and Sea tour to pass the many hours between the end of the cruise and our evening flight to San Diego. As we spend a few hours listening to 60 … Continue reading
