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.

yellow-bellied sapsucker, redtail hawk, rhinestone owl

2010-11-14 - 10:11 a.m.

Nice day for yard birds -- I got a Yellow-Bellied Sapsucker while I was in back lifting my weights, and later I got a low, slow fly-by of an adult Red-Tailed Hawk while I was checking the mail, as he inspected my front yard for possible yummy, tasty parrots, tee hee. He parked himself in a nearby pine.

Got my Satsuma Vodka decanted into fancy bottles. I mostly feel like people hate getting Christmas gifts, and it's a nuisance and an obligation, unless you're wealthy enough to exchange things like HDTVs or something, but I envy the lucky recipients of my Satsuma vodka. Yes, I had to do some tasting to make sure it was at the bottling stage. Tee hee again.

I have finally got around to posting my jewelry box pictures -- the owl box is the one I just got for my birthday. It's from Kingsport Designs. The Asian bluebirds or fancy thrushes at the idea. Now that I have two small jewel boxes, it seems like I should have three, but since I don't, I just added the bright 'n' shiny rhinestone hummingbird pin to the photo.

DH had to do a big job out of town when he first returned from vacation, but now we're easing back into the stone-cutting. He cut a particularly spectacular piece on Friday night that I'll have to figure out how to photograph. For now, enjoy this mystery rock I found in the rockpile. I think it's dinosaur bone but it could be petrified wood. I feel like I see some cell structure.
