Long ago in a blog far away I wrote about the first of The Wizard of Time books. The Wizard of Time broke one of my rules of reading fiction. Do not hurt children! I don't read books that include people hurting children. You can endanger children, you can kill children, what I don't like are…Continue

(Note I have set with this post hidden for nearly three months. I didn't open post it at the time because I wanted to let myself cool off before posting and to also prevent some faculty at my sons school from happening across it and then making things worse for my son and the other students. Since then other things have happened so I am reposting it today with…Continue
Michael D. Sellers' book John Carter and the Gods of Hollywood came across my kindle as a third party gift from a fellow movie buff. I woke up one morning and found it and a copy of all the John Carter books in the public domain sitting in a email.
I know you might be…Continue

Happy Kids. Remember this is what school is normally. Don't forget but don't obsess either. TV and Radio and the internet make it very hard for us to remember that life goes on and we have to as well. The Media sells fear but you don't have be a buyer.
Tell your kids you love them and it can't ever happen here. Because it won't happen here. Odds are…Continue

A few years ago I had an idea to make Lego battle robots from RC cars. The Mindstorm sets were way to expensive for me at the time and I just wanted to crash something that would break up and have fun and mass mayhem. So we bought some gear boxes from Tamiya and built some quick and dirty little battle bots glued some Legos on it and off we went. …Continue

The Wizard of Time (Book 1) by G.L. Breedon is a book I was very ambiguous about for the first third of the book. I have a rule that I try to stick to in my reading. I don't read books about people hurting children ever. I also don't read books about rape. I took the second rule from…Continue
Phase Three are the build weeks.
Building from scratch is very hard the first time. I chose to have a group project where they could all build the same thing. I decided on some simple RC pusher bots. I also decide it would be neat to add some Lego blocks so the kids could individualize their…Continue

Two years ago I watched as my son entered kindergarten and wondered at all the sports activities. As the school year moved on I continued to look for some type of nonsports after school activities. I was looking for some type of science program. About this time I learned about the…Continue

Where I work we don't get holidays off. I work almost every weekend, every Christmas, every New Year, and ... you get the idea. It's also third shift work, so even on the days off, I still sleep most of the day. It makes seeing my son a little on the challenging side. On the other hand, I do get to volunteer at the school more than most fathers, and…Continue
It was a dark and stormy Thursday night in April of 1983. I was laying in bed watching a video tape of Spider-man the live action show my parents had gotten me. It was one of the VCR tapes we had rented from R&R electronics. I had been waiting all day for my turn to watch my rental.…Continue
