I am a very spiritual person and try to always understand that no one is bad or good, but merely trying their best to understand and live their lives to the best of their knowledge.

I have two wonderful adult children, who are living their lives to the fullest and best for them.

I live in a small Indiana town with my cat Tamika. I have sold 6 short horror stories that were published in 2013. I published a Kindle book anthology of my horror stories in fall of 2013 and have recently posted my 900th post on my blog. I am working on a novel and trying to get healthier.

Fringe*

I have been spending quite a bit of time (queue the laughter) online.  I have always done searches and so forth. Right now, I am playing games (notably “Fallout 76”) and watching Amazon Prime’s 5 seasons of “Fringe”.  Now, Fringe is a good show.  In my opinion, very good.  It is rated something like “M” for TV, it was a cable TV show (don’t remember which one) from early 2000-2012.

Basically, a division of the FBI is created.  It is called the “Fringe” division and handles the weird stuff (like “X-files”).  The 4 main members of the team are:

  1. Olivia – Blonde, FBI agent, very committed and determined.  Mostly, practical.
  2. Peter Bishop – Young genius, around Olivia’s age, pragmatic and practical, similar.
  3. Walter Bishop – Peter’s estranged father, an old genius, responsible for many inventions, loves drugs and “fringe” events.
  4.  Astid Farnsworth – youngest on team, FBI intern, helps Walter, puts up with a lot.

It is a romance-adventure-drama-suspense show.  The violence is somewhat less than “The Living Dead” (TLD) and has a lot more humor and human interaction.

It is far-fetched at points and there are spots of “yeah, right”, but all-in-all, a good show that has kept me watching through 3 seasons now.

Why Did Russia Do It?

I listened to this twice in a row.  Very important.  Listen carefully for 11 min and see what you think.  I would love Comments.

Life, Universe,and Lunch

“Perhaps,” stated Johnson a bit too loudly for the coffee cafe they were seated in, “Perhaps, you just need to think a little better.  I mean, 42? Really not the answer to everything.”

Keldon didn’t stutter, shake, or even nod; he merely put his coffee on the table, the steam swirling in to the cooled air.

“Are you so sure?”

“Of course, I am.  For instance, it is not the answer to the question, “How many pizza slices will I need for dinner?”

“That depends,’ Keldon spoke as he, once again, picked his cup and lifted it for a sip.

“How can it, possibly, depend?”

Keldon looked around at the audience, many of whom were intent on hearing his answer.

“If you are going to buy slices for everyone here right now, 42 would be just about right.”

“That’s ridiculous!  That wasn’t the question.”  People around nodding their heads.

“Or, perhaps, it is and you just aren’t asking the right question.”

With that, Keldon motioned the waitress over for a large order.

No Time Like the Present

I don’t plan these posts far ahead of time.  In fact, most are thoughts in the moment combined with ongoing thoughts in my head.  This is the first time I have, actually, been afraid of the November election process.  I have gone on record stating that I voted for Trump in 2016.  I did so because I did not want Hilary in the White House (still don’t).  However, that was, I see now, an unwinnable tenet in voting.  Trump has taken four very long years out of the life of this country and stepped all over it in the name of progress and self-serving ideals.  I was happy when he was elected.  That lasted about 3-4 months when I started seeing what a Frankenstein we had elected.  This devaluation of Democracy, of United States’ social/economical values, as well as the value of the individual has continued for years now.  I have see-sawed on worry about this election.  At times, I felt Democracy and pride in our country was going to win out.  Right now, I am worried.  I still believe that all things work out in the end, but that process, I feel, could be lengthened this November.

I spent this morning catching up on the Conventions a bit.  This one speech I, particularly, enjoyed.  It held hope and elevation of people at it’s heart.  It’s less than 25 mins and I feel it could raise your hopes if you let it.

Obama’s speech 2020 

If you do nothing else, please think about how “Great” America has gotten these last few years.  Job losses, disease deaths, hopelessness, wealthy getting wealthier,…the list does not stop there.

I urge you to get out and vote to get America back on track.

Sincerely.  Namaste,

Scott
