A bibliography of my published books and stories.

Here's a simple card-counting FAQ to get you up to speed on the basics. Here's the true story of the notorious DD' blackjack team, told for the first time on the fabulous internets. No other team went from a starting investor's bankroll of zero to winning millions of dollars.

ten glorious years of diary

2012-10-12 - 8:01 a.m.

HEY! It's the glorious tenth anniversary edition of Peachfront Speaks.

On a beautiful fall morning, the theme of the yard is small stuff -- irascible Carolina Chickadees, an immature/female Ruby-throat Hummingbird with a big powder mark on her head who investigated my gas station Salvia and Turk's Cap, a toy-like Inca Dove popping up from under my feeder. Yes, the Inca Doves seems to have decided to stay here. Yay. The big birds thus far this morning on the feeder are represented by the adult male Red-bellied Woodpecker.

My first entry can be found here, and it's called, What is this thing called Peachfront? Most annoyingly, my very first entry contains an error of fact. At the time, I used a photograph of Ronnie, and I said she was 10 years old. I hadn't dug out my old hand-written diary yet. She was actually already 12 years old.

It has been a busy decade, as I have now visited every continent except Antarctica, and I have a tasteful, not terribly inflated bird list of over 1,650 species with a focus on rarities like the Madagascar Serpent-Eagle and Blue-Throated Macaw, both rediscovered in the wild in the early 1990s. Your list may be bigger -- your list almost HAS to be bigger -- but my list has class!
