Today, I have three different topics to blog about. It's been a busy week!RIP Stephen HawkingRenown scientist Stephen Hawking died the morning of March 13, 2018 in his Cambridge home. His death came some 55 years after he was diagnosed with a motor neuron disease (ALS) in 1963...and given two years to live. What he accomplished in all those "borrowed years" was nothing short of spectacular.In that five-and-a-half decade span, he was confined to a wheel... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...

During my career, I had a fair share of exposure to the natural phenomena called wildfires. Though most probably think of New Mexico as a desert state, the truth is it contains millions of acres of forests and at least three major wilderness areas--the Gila (the largest at 3.3 million acres), the Pecos, and the Jemez, and five major designated National Forests. In fact, the original Smokey Bear - the little rescue... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...

I haven't had anything much of interest to post lately, and if any of you saw the recent weather reports for us in the UK related to The Beast From The East and Storm Emma, you can imagine life was a little more complicated for a few days.
But despite nothing of interest writing and SFR wise, I know some of you like my chicken updates and there's been quite a bit of development there, so I thought I'd do a quick recap on that at least.

Happy Monday.While doing some research for a future novel, I realized I was a bit fuzzy on this whole "Cloud" thing. What exactly is The Cloud. And what does it do?My understanding was about this sophisticated: The Cloud is someplace over the rainbow where I store a bunch of manuscripts and photos and music and files and stuff, and I think of it as this nebulous place high above the ground but below the exosphere where all this information just sort of hangs in the atm... spacefreighters.blogspot.co...

Well, it’s been a rough week all around, dear readers. So, here, courtesy of Reid Carter of AV Club, is a tip about a YouTube show that goes wa-a-a-y beyond your typical cat video. In fact, it combines my two favorite YouTube video addictions—martial arts and cats!
Yes, this is the (in)famous Neko Zamurai  (Samurai Cat), an historical series about...

Good Monday Morning!This will be a very short post because I've got a ton of "Life Happening" at the moment, but I wanted to reflect a little on the 2018 Olympics which just wrapped.
