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.

My heart is broken. My flight was cancelled yet again, and now I can't make the trip in time. Snowy Owls game, set and match. Peachfront ZERO! So disappointed.

It's going to be a clear day on Saturday and I just know they're going to see a hundred owls. It's the MSP-HIB leg that keeps getting cancelled. I don't think anybody who flies in is going to make this tour -- just the people who can drive. *Cry*

On a humor note, Alex Turner is still trending even as I type. In fact, he's at the top of my Twitter trends other than a "promoted" post. Sometimes #WhatsApp trends higher, and sometimes he does. They keep switching places but considering #WhatsApp just scored billions of dollars then Turner's drunken ramble is apparently pretty much worth its weight in gold in entertainment value. But it really seems like the kind thing to do would be to let him sing and look pretty and have some responsible grown-up make the speeches.

I forgot to mention that yesterday I saw a Belted Kingfisher sitting on a wire on Hwy 190 in Covington near the WalMart. Never saw one in Covington before that I can remember...


To make my day of disappointment complete, some guy tweeted they had put out more Neutral Milk Hotel tickets.

They were already gone. I bet those last-minute, day-of tickets of sold-out shows go to people in the know or people willing to kickback to somebody at the box office...Sigh.

Oh, and this:

WhatsApp is so 45 minutes ago but some police officers killing 70 people in the Ukraine is now fighting it out for the number one spot on Twitter ahead of our Alex. Drunk guy makes a speech or deadly warfare in the Ukraine? What's the bigger news item? Apparently it's a fairly difficult decision. It just goes to show that people are funny.
