the weekend was filled…

… with work on 3 computers. Restoring 1 that I’m selling. Prepping 1 that will be my primary and setting 1 up to be my editing work station. It all took less time than was anticipated. All I can say is… Thank God for the invention of external hard drives! THE “COOLER HEP” QUOTIENT So on the Beehive the other day there was a post that included this video. Yes, the story happens to be …

earthquake in so cal

It was a 5.4… so, there was a whole lotta shakin going on. I was watching some live coverage via the internet and it is kinda funny when reporters are looking for news… and there really is none… except that the quake did happen. No major devastation or “hero” stories. Though news does travel faster now with the net and some of it is pretty funny. For the most part if you live in California …

so, I fiddled around…

… and came up with THIS. I found the template from a free site… messed with it a little… created a new header… the lovely Joy filled in the content. I’m working on THIS today… which includes content as well. (I’ll let you know once it is complete.) Yes, my plate is chock full and overflowing at the moment so please forgive my sporadic visits and tardiness at replying to comments for the time being. …

time is close the waiting closer to done

This is not only in reference to several upcoming projects… but also to several personal aspects of my life. Like for instance… MY NEXT PLAY…which I think is ready to be written. Yeah, this is the one about the terrorist chef. Ideas have floated enough in my rabid mind and fermented enough to commit it to paper. Should be a fun little ditty that involves real food. Now all I have to do is block …

A couple of old features may return.

I’ve been meaning to bring back Picture Daze for a while now. First it’s a great excuse to scan in those old slowly disintegrating photographs into digital format. Plus it also gives me an opportunity to record and share some stories. So, look out for that… probably tomorrow or Monday depending on when I can get the scanner to get working again. I’m thinking that perhaps this will occur at least every other week. I …

this that and the other

AT THE HOMESTEADThe last three days has been a flurry of activity over at the homestead. I may have mentioned about 3 weeks ago how some good and wonderful folk have volunteered their time and effort to help with things around here so that it’s more livable for Mum. Well, on the 4th the next work day began at 8 in the AM. The mission was to get the swamp cooler running again and the …

mind meanderings on this and that

It seems as if I always have to start it… get it going… then they will jump on board… maybe.To be honest… I’m getting a little tired of this. It’s not one project… this is the case in several things I have my hot little hands on at the moment. “Oh yeah… we support you… 100 percent behind it.” So, then I send out emails requesting assistance in certain aspects… crickets chirp. Discussions lead to …

a royalty payment came in today…

… though I’m not planning on retiring on it. It’s been a while since I’ve received one from a production for one of my plays that (other than writing it) I have no hand in producing. It’s nice. I really need to see how I can keep this trend going. Speaking of trends…I totally geeked out yesterday with the whole Britain’s Got Talent thing (see post below) by constantly refreshing an update page whilst the …

bits n pieces of this n that

On FrogwayHad a great lengthy Skype call with Mike last night on how things were progressing. Apparently, it is going really well. Some pretty big names in the theatre circles in Malaysia are now attached to the project which has already created a hefty growing buzz about the show. There are some more revisions to the script that have been suggested that I am presently mulling over.……………………… On Selling The Rights To My ShowsThere is …
