Kibbles And Bits

Cheersfest 2.0 2013: sponsored by Alex Cavanaugh, Mark Koopmans, Morgan Shamy, David Powers King, and myself will spotlight someone deserving of being roasted, similar to a Comedy Central roasting.
This year’s victim … err …. esteemed recipient is none other than Arlee Bird, who is a constant presence, is positive, possesses integrity, is involved in the online community (participating and hosting); is supportive of others and is a major force in the blogging community. This event will be held December 9th, 2013. More details to follow.
Realms Faire 2013: Thanks everyone for stopping by wen Gardner's Web site last week. The thumbs up fortunately outweighed the thumbs down. I am now set free. Thanks again!
Books From My Youth. I have the pleasure of reading the books my kids are doing for book reports. These are the same books I read as a kid. Gulliver’s Travels. Little House On The Prairie. Johnny Tremain. Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Through the Looking-Glass. Dr. Doolittle. Treasure Island. I had forgotten what fun it is to read these timeless classics!
What I'm Currently Reading
The Word Is … I'm flipping through my first book Breakthrough I wrote five years ago, and I saw a word I used and forgotten what it means. Probably because I don't use it in my day to day conversations.
The word is "solicitous."
Had to look it up. It means "characterized by or showing interest or concern."
I had to laugh.
Coffee: As a writer, I am always looking for that awesome cup of coffee in the morning. My wife brought home Folgers Half Caff. Smooth, yet bold if you add a little more coffee to the mix. I never would have thought grocery store coffee could taste this good. I highly recommend it.

Finally: The McRib is back in all its glory! For better or worse. And only 500 calories of deliciousness. Get them while you can as they are here for an unlimited time only. Or until whatever animal they use to make the (ahem) meat goes extinct.
