The writer John Edward Williams has been dead since 1994, but I am apologizing to him anyway. Months ago, …Read More

Taxing Taxes, Round 1

March 6, 2017 by - 4 Comments

  See that look on Miss Nina’s face? Her face could be a reflection of mine right now. It seems that our government overlords decided that LLC businesses–our Gallowstree Press LLC is one–must file their company taxes by March 15th, rather than April 15th. The good news is that I won’t be trying to get …Read More

Every Saturday, Rain or Shine

Planets, the Oscars, and geeky road trips, oh my.   Seven newly-discovered, possibly habitable planets to ponder. How cool is that? At 70-something, we are apparently very different people from the people we were at 14. Does this surprise you? I’m of two minds, myself.
