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.

There’s a movie coming up in December . . . Normally, I’d avoid anything by James Cameron due to suffering massive disappointment with his Titanic and Avatar efforts. The thing is, both of those were massive hits and are loved by … Continue reading
Since January, I’ve averaged exactly twelve (12) posts per month. That is a huge drop from years past. In 2015, for instance, my average was more than one post a day and that’s when I was working. It’s not just … Continue reading
This is my “don’t feel like doing jack liquid effluent” post . . . a bit of this, a bit of that. Let me start by mentioning Lao Tzu . . . he sure said a lot of things. It … Continue reading

In a rare personal excursion away from the safety of our home, we ventured out to our local Hollywood theater to see the non-3D version of Guardians of the Galaxy. I try not to read reviews and opinions before I … Continue reading
It’s been a while since I’ve done a straight up opinion piece. I started a number of them, and then realized that while I might feel better venting, I was not likely to change anyone’s mind, affect the unfolding of events, … Continue reading
One of Firefly’s descriptions is “Cowboys in space”. It’s only fitting, then, that Mal’s gun gave a nod to sidearms of the past. And QMx once again did a fine job of coming up with something for fans to get … Continue reading
I mentioned before that QMx does good work, and so far I’ve shown you some of the paper products I own. It’s now time to move up to my other stuff. I begin with Serenity Little Damn Heroes Maquette #6. You … Continue reading
So, you got your ship, you got your papers, you got your crew (such as it is) . . . where do you go? Well, you contact the Trader’s Guild Association, and get your yourself a copy of New Canaan … Continue reading
Before I get into this post, let me clear up some things that might confuse people new to the ‘verse. In the ‘verse, Serenity is a popular name. What makes it popular is a tad annoying to newcomers . . … Continue reading
If you are a reader of this blog, and if you read this post, and if you are a new Firefly fan, you are now having this conversation with yourself: “Oh, woe is me! My parents waited too long to have … Continue reading
Do you know what it takes to sail a Firefly? Capt. Malcolm Reynolds: Love. You can learn all the math in the ‘Verse, but you take a boat in the air that you don’t love, she’ll shake you off just … Continue reading
The very first purchase I made of Firefly-related stuff was one of the limited edition run (750) of Serenity‘s blueprints. You can click on the image to read the text of the two people who worked to create a better defined … Continue reading
