I’m back on Facebook. Yes, that’s right. I know a couple of years ago I wrote a blog post about why Facebook is no good and why you should delete it. But things change, and I’ve changed. Social dynamics exist on Facebook. No doubt. And I am behind, socially. I do not have a lot of friends – real … [Read More...]
On July 1st of 2015 I published a blog post entitled, “A Problem With Evolution”. Well, I started reading Richard Dawkins’ “The God Delusion” and the core problem with evolution that I wrote about in “A Problem With Evolution” was brought up and thoroughly explained by Mr. Dawkins. No way! The idea I came up with was specifically explained … [Read More...]
I recently published my third eBook – “Let’s Be Social!: My Third Kindle Book”. This eBook came out to just under 6,000 words (18 pages print-length). My first two eBooks were just a little shorter. The topic of my books revolve around self-help and spirituality/psychospirituality. But “Let’s Be Social!: My Third Kindle Book” is my first book to not … [Read More...]
I started learning a new board game (new to me) – the Japanese brain twister “Go”. I don’t really understand it. You’re suppose to gain more territory than your opponent. That’s how the game is scored at the end. But what counts as owning territory? Does it mean that you’re opponent will get captured if he moves there? I … [Read More...]
When I was 23-years-old I tried running a gas station. I got the job pretty easily and was looking forward to having something to do every day. I assumed there would be nothing to it. I assumed that almost any idiot could at least run a gas station. But, I couldn’t. I felt overwhelmed trying to learn how to … [Read More...]
I thought I was going to spend the Holidays in Hawaii and stay there for a long time. I was only in Hawaii for five nights. It went by so fast. I would move there but I can’t right now. I’m tied down financially and mentally – I need to stay home where it’s cheap and where my doctors … [Read More...]
In early November 2016 I played in the Annual King’s Island Open chess tournament in Cincinnati Ohio, and I did not have very good results (2/5). I lost the very first round which made it difficult to proceed. After the first loss I had 2 wins and 2 more losses. I was a little disappointed. So, I thought something … [Read More...]

I got my first comment/pingback from somebody that I don’t know. This person reviewed/critiqued my memoir in a blog entry on their website – http://www.losingalltherest.com I’m not sure how they found my website as I do not do a lot of networking, and I am not on Facebook. I despise Facebook. Overall this blogger’s review was positive. He/she calls … [Read More...]
“Do you hear voices?”, my psychiatrist asked.
“No”, I responded.
“Do you see things that aren’t there?”.
Again I replied, “No”.
My psychiatrist boldly responded, “Then you’re not schizophrenic. You have obsessive compulsive disorder.”
This was in August of 2013 when I was obsessing over Hell and how narrow the gates of Heaven are. My psychiatrist asked me if … [Read More...]
