I tend to go through phases of reading, but over the last year or so, my interest in reading has waned dramatically. It was therefore something of an impulse purchase for me to download Time Heist by Anthony Vicino from Amazon;

I bought this book for three reasons.
1 I like the title. “Time Heist” conjures up images of masked robbers with plasma rifles kicking in the doors of some futuristic bank vault.
2 I like the cover – simple, but evocative. Everything I have read about self-publishing says that readers do judge a book by its cover, and I’m no exception.
3 Anthony’s avatar reminds me of Morgan Grimes from the TV series, “Chuck.” Continue reading
Yes indeedy, 44 years old today. Mrs Harker took me shopping for running gear, and this week has been taking me out and about dressed in my Ron Hill’s (Benny Hill’s I call ’em) to try and keep me in good health for a little longer.
Now I know what you are all thinking; what gift do you give to the man who has everything?
The answer—-a reblog.
Please make my special day even more special and reblog something for me. If you need a list, I have compiled one HERE.
Failing that, how about a bigger gun?
More adventures from the spambox.

Thanks for the advice, ya bitch-punk, fag-ho!
I have been back on my weight loss plan for the last couple of weeks, and wanted to offer some encouragement to those in the same posish.

The polls are now closed!
The response has been overwhelming. The votes have been counted and, at the request of Bono, recounted and the results speak for themselves.
A resounding victory for EVERYONE!
And remember… your vote counts!
Following on from my previous article, and endeavoring to be as topical as possible, here is an extract from Intelligent Design; Book Two, which is currently in process. This scene leads on from What is Project American Quilt?
“OK, Major, he’s awake.”
“Thank you, Doctor.”
Second Lieutenant Brock Dalton awoke to find himself behind glass, suspended in a warm clear fluid. The last thing he remembered was riding back to base on his motorcycle. He had lost control and come off of the bike, but it had all happened so fast.
On the other side of the glass, two men perched on footstools, staring at him intently. The man on the left wore a military camouflage jacket and trousers, his insignia and name badge identifying him as Major McGranite of the U.S Air Force, and the second man wore jeans and a tee shirt. Brock recognised neither of them, nor his surroundings. Continue reading
