Read my new book, The 10 Best Things You Can Do For Your Bird at Amazon or at many other fine distributors like Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Kobo, and more.

By public demand, and after a delay of an embarrassing number of years, I've finally put my notorious essay, Ender and Hitler: Sympathy for the Superman, free on the fabulous internets.

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.

A Sadean take on Asimov's classic Three Laws of Robotics can be found in Roger Williams' NOW REVIEWED ON SLASHDOT!!! The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect. Adult readers only please -- explicit sex and violence. For updates on the "Dead Tree Project" and other topics, you may visit the official fan site, Passages in the Void..

My Bird Lists -- My Louisiana State Life List, My Yard List and, tah dah, My World Life List.

HEY! What happened to the Peachfront Conure Files? The world's only OFFICIAL Peachfront Conure site now features free peachfront conure coverage, including a magazine length Intro to Conures previously published in American Cage-Bird Magazine, now free on the web. I offer the best free Peachfront Conure information on the internet. If you have great Peachfront Conure info, stories, or photos to share, contact me so I can publicize your pet, your breeding success, your great photograph, etc. on my site. Thanks.

orange cats should be illegal

2014-06-26 - 8:42 a.m.

A low-key day. Doctor's visit, lots of power blinkages because of the late afternoon weather. Adult Red-headed Woodpeckers hanging around low, not just on my feeder but actually sitting out on a neighbor's mailbox. Don't usually see them sitting low like that unless it's my feeder -- which is, of course, still higher than the mailboxes.

I also spotted that immortal orange cat hanging around. Sigh. Maybe that's why I haven't really seen any juvenile RHWO down low.

The person of dubious provenance sent over to fix the fence next door put up fenceboards along the back that appear to be higher than the neighborhood allows. Also, he didn't mend the gate, so the fence still doesn't enclose anything. Sort of reminds me of this classic picture:

racoon roadkill paved and painted over by lazy roadcrew in pennsylvania

Alleged worker left, didn't return Wednesday, didn't return Thursday -- but I noticed the manager's car over there and wondered how he reacted. Of course no contractor ever finished a job in this state, but this isn't a small "forget" as it means that the "fence" still isn't a fence.

I hate to laugh but since this rental manager or the corporate ownership or both are essentially evil, OK. I'm gonna go ahead and laugh.
