Well, my Moot Subscription runs out tomorrow, and no sign of being renewed, despite sending Mr. Miller a check last Friday, which should have arrived in Bloomington on Tuesday. He might be a bit ticked about the reason for reducing the amount of the new subscription from my prior one. I guess I will have to ssee what the powers-that-be decide to do. Hopefully, Mr. Miller will has not lost the check, as he has one previously. If the subscription is not renewed, I assume that I will get the c ...More Read More

Well, I sent Mr. Miller my renewal for the Moot, and now I have to see if he will accept it and renew the Moot Subscription. There does seem to ba a lot of interest from the Guests, more than the forum members, which is one reason for renewing.

I keep debating about posting some pro-Trump comments in the Pit, just to see if they would be allowed. That probably will stir up a wasp's next, but such is life. Maybe some anti-gun control comments to add to the mix. Right now, I am debating if ...More Read More

My wife and I visited Shipshewana, Indiana earlier in the week on the way home from visitng our son in Milan, Michigan. We have been there before, but it has been a while, and I had never been to the Flea Market that is there on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from May to September. If you have not been to Shipshewana, and are within about 6 hours or so driving distance, you are missing out on a slice of life that is divorced from the rush of the urban life style. I would not mind moving there, alth ...More Read More

Well, hard to say how much I will post this weekend, as we are taking off for Michigan, on a combination anniversary weekend and to visit our son. While I cannot say that I am thrilled visiting him in prison on our anniversary, he is still my beloved son and I will be thrilled to see him. He has acknowledged his wrong, repented of it, and asked for forgiveness, and I look forward to the day he comes home, and we can celebrate the return of the Prodigal.

We will hit 44 years on Friday, and ...More Read More

I had thought that this post would go into some of my ideas for design sequences, or at least adapting vehicles to Traveller/Cepheus Engine. However, that sort of got kicked into the back of the line by what happened in Life this weekend.

A good friend of mine at church wife suffered a massive heart attack on Thursday night. It turns out that 4 arteries going to the heart were from 80-90 per cent blocked. After getting the family in town, she was taken off life support today as she was br ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Quixotes Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #168 New August 17th, 2019 04:40 AM
Well, looking through some of the older threads that Guests have been looking at has been enlightening, to say the least. It would appear that I am one of the Quixotes. I am not sure how that compares to being one of Hillary's deplorables, but I suspect that it is reasonably close. The idea of "less than desirable" is definitely there, along with a touch of contempt. Having been the odd man out on a fair number of threads does fit, and the individual who coined the term is someone who I hav ...More Read More

While checking Project Gutenberg, I came across an interesting book on an extensive tour of the Russian Empire, circa 1885. Aside from giving me ideas for Traveller, it has a ton of stuff for Space: 1889, for obvious reasons. The author has a whole series of these books based on his actual world travels, and the urge to work on Space: 1889 is building. I keep thinking of putting out some new News Flashes and see how the forum reacts. I might just do that. I have spent a fair amount of time ...More Read More

  #166 New August 12th, 2019 01:46 AM
Well, I am working on narrowing down the field for the bestiary, and here is what I have so far. For standard pack and/or draft animals I have: burro, mule, horse (standard and heavy draft horse), oxen, llama, reindeer, and elephant. Some of these will count as wild animals, except the elephant, as you have both the African and Indian variety. Grazers and browsers are as follows: bison/American buffalo, Cape (African buffalo), elk (Red Deer), moose (European Elk), generic deer (white-tail o ...More Read More

Having spent the past 16 summers working with a wide range of gifted kids, as well at teaching at a local college, and mentoring some of the kids of friends at church, I have developed a very jaundiced view of the U.S. educational system, at least with respect to history. Math and science are issues as well, but as I teach history and geography, I am more comfortable in those areas. With respect to geography, those comments are quite simply. The average high school graduate has no idea as to ...More Read More

We spent yesterday at the Wisconsin State Fair, the first time we have been there in quite a while. The weather was not too hot, and no rain, so a very nice day. We did spend a fair amount of time munching on the various edibles, but did not spend all of our time doing that. I think that my wife liked the bunny hopping the most, as some of the little bunnies were quite funny. One of them successfully jumped all of the hurdles, but also spent a fair amount of time carefully sniffing them fir ...More Read More
