In Moot Member Blogs Trade Planets-El Paso Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #243 New September 6th, 2020 09:30 PM
I am working on a trade planet guide for El Paso, based on the planets that are within two Jump-3 jumps of it, in the Sword, Odin, and Tuatha sub-sectors. El Paso is in the Sword sub-sector, located at 0810, so the lower right-hand corner of a standard sub-sector map. This is proving harder than I anticipated, as I have to work up a longer background for El Paso, to include what trade goods are readily available, and also a background for each trading planet. That covers a wide range of plan ...More Read More

We finally got away from the tax office (this is the Tax Season that Never Ends) and spent a few days at Shipshewana and the Flea Market. Of course, the days the Flea Market was open were some of the hottest it has been in Shipshewana all summer, so I stayed in the hotel air conditioning while my wife went. She found some good stuff, but not all of the normal vendors were there. Hopefully, it will be back to closer to normal next year. We did hit the furniture stores, and are now trying to ...More Read More

I sent off to a friend of mine, who teaches a creative writing class, the first two chapters of a D&D novel that I have been working on. The word count is a little over 5500, and 14 pages so far. It is based on the old Isle of Dread adventure for Basic D&D. I bought the adventure when it came out, and still have my copy. To simplify working with it, I also bought the PDF file for it. She likes it and wants to know when she can see more of it. I will need to put my D&D writer's hat back on ...More Read More

In Moot Member Blogs Looking Over Blog Entry Tools Rate This Entry
  #240 New August 19th, 2020 03:27 AM
I have been looking over my blog the past few days, seeing what catches attention of readers and what does not, and it is an interesting mix. The single most read blog post is Sneering at the Military, with nothing else even close. I am not sure why Great Lakes Levels is so popular, and it has the most comments. A fair number of comments have 200 or more reads, with my first essay into blogging, Religion and Government, on Traveller is close to 300, so not too bad. My comment on my Signatur ...More Read More

The erstwhile mayor of Chicago, who unfortunately will be around to 2023, has decided to keep the Chicago Public Schools closed, probably until the New Year at the earliest. The schools will, in theory at least, be doing online learning. The city's Health Commissioner was urging that the schools open for among other reasons, the students are safer there from being shot by gangs, and also the poorer students will get a hot lunch (and in most cases a hot breakfast) paid for by the Federal gover ...More Read More

  #238 New August 7th, 2020 03:11 AM
I never did get to post my comments on the first Atomic Bomb drop on the 75th anniversary, and I suspect that the subject would be too hot (pun intended) for the Pit.

While some of the Ivory Tower Designers had no compunctions whatsoever with using it on the Germans, they did have considerable reluctance to use it on the Japanese. i suspect that they had no idea whatsoever about the bestiality of the Japanese in China and elsewhere. Go download Volume 4 of the Australian Army history of Wo ...More Read More

A lot to think about these days, between the Chinese Flu, continuing mob action, defunding the police and law enforcement in general, taking down statues, and of course, rewriting history to be politically correct.

Being an historian, it is the last the bugs me the most. How are they going to write the influence of white European males out of history? Sub-Sahara Africa never got beyond tribal groups, nor did they make it to even the Bronze Age, as no metal smelting. Forget shipbuilding. ...More Read More

Just some random thoughts from the day.

The borderline imbecile mayor of Chicago has announced that anyone from Wisconsin that comes to Chicago or anyone from Chicago that visits Wisconsin must be self-quarantined for 14 days. How this dimwit plans to enforce this is totally unstated, but is basically impossible. All it does is reinforce the view that there is nothing between her ears but vacuum.

I see that the baseball players are now kneeling and in other ways showing disrespect to th ...More Read More

  #235 New July 27th, 2020 05:01 PM
The Babylon Bee has a post today on people fleeing Chicago for safer places like the Middle East. The satire is in fleeing to the Middle East, the fleeing Chicago is not satire. Actually, fleeing Illinois is not satire, but a straightforward fact. Illinois, and Chicago, are loosing people in droves, in greater numbers than any other state in the country. I will concede that some of it is retirees heading south to warmer winter weather, as the winters can be nasty. A lot more is simply peop ...More Read More

  #234 New July 16th, 2020 05:16 AM
I just watched the U.S. Army Field Band play and sing the "Battle Hymn of the Republic". and yes it brought tears to my eyes. It always does that, just like watching the Victory at Sea episode covering Pearl Harbor, where I finally have been. Julia Howe wrote the lyrics after seeing a review of the Army of the Potomac in November of 1861. Not all of the verses are sung nowadays, but all are worth reading. George McClellan was a great organizer, I will concede that, but a failure as a battle ...More Read More
