I put a little 20000 word novella up on Amazon yesterday! It’s a generic MilSF novella, not tied to Rimworld or any ‘specific’ universe.

Click the cover for the Amazon link!

The blurb-

Old habits die hard.

Life at the Frog Pond Bar was usually quiet, aside from a few Marine versus SEAL fights. Its owner, Hal Gleason, referred to it as the best way for him to slowly go broke in retirement.

But trouble doesn’t just happen on deployment, and when the wife of an active duty SEAL comes to him after some toughs try to kidnap her daughter, he starts getting the team back together again.

The more he digs, the more he finds that the kidnapping attempt was just the tip of a star-spanning criminal cartel. They have untold money, guns, and drugs… and Hal has old age, treachery, connections, and more than a few tricks up his sleeve.

They shouldn’t have disturbed the still waters…

I’ll be out of pocket for a few days, off to FantaSci in Raleigh Durham, NC. Regular blogging will resume Monday.

Feeding the crowd…

Edit- I ‘was’ going to post this Sunday and forgot to schedule it…

So, yesterday was a ‘celebration’ for Peter and Dot’s anniversary this week. Since I was cooking, I hit up our local butcher shop to see what looked good.

These NY strips looked good, so I grabbed enough to make up the difference with what Jonna had brought.

Steak, baked potatoes, steamed broccoli, and a salad was the plan…

Oh, and bearnaise sauce for the steaks. Little did I know…

And we had a cake for them.

I got started on the steaks as everybody was chowing down on the appetizers when I realized I couldn’t be in three places at once (yet again). So I drafted Ian and Sanford to help with the inside stuff while I did the steaks.

Managed to get everything ready at the same time and the feed was on! As usual, the girls take their table and leave us guys on the other table. I really need to record the cacophony of two sets of conversation in the same room sometime…LOL

Oh yeah, that bearnaise sauce? I think I was the only one that actually put it over my steak! Everybody else used it for the broccoli or the potatoes! Sigh…

So, as usual, the guys finished first, and we all move into the kitchen and den when a loud peal of laughter comes from the living room. I swear, it stopped every guy and we all turned a looked toward the living room! The girls finally joined us and we had the cake, and refills for anybody that needed them.

So, we start cleaning up and making the to-go plates for those who were working, and that’s when I found the salad that I’d made and forgot to set out! (#@%#@%~!!)

But a good time was had, and I got harassed about forgetting things…


This is an interesting take on the current Trump kerfuffle…

For many Democrats, the weakness of their attacks on former President Donald Trump is a feature, not a bug. They’d abandon their efforts to destroy Trump if they stood a chance of succeeding. It is important to understand this as one indictment (at least) looms over Trump as a 2024 candidate.

Full article, HERE.

And it does make a lot of sense. Also, if it’s slow rolled, it could easily continue until the election next year.

@#$#@%*!& politics… I am SO tired of this crap!

Stirring the pot…

Some comments on gun control…

“I have a love interest in every one of my films – a gun.”
– Arnold Schwarzenegger

“I have a very strict gun control policy: if there’s a gun around, I want to be in control of it.”
– Clint Eastwood

“The world is filled with violence. Because criminals carry guns, we decent law-abiding citizens should also have guns. Otherwise they will win and the decent people will lose.”
– James Earl Jones

“There are hundreds of millions of gun owners in this country, and not one of them will have an accident today. The only misuse of guns comes in environments where there are drugs, alcohol, bad parents, and undisciplined children. Period.”
– Ted Nugent

“To my mind it is wholly irresponsible to go into the world incapable of preventing violence, injury, crime, and death. How feeble is the mindset to accept defenselessness. How unnatural. How cheap. How cowardly. How pathetic.”
– Ted Nugent

“A fear of weapons is a sign of retarded sexual and emotional maturity.”
– Sigmund Freud

“An armed society is a polite society.”
– Robert Heinlein

“There are no dangerous weapons. There are only dangerous men.”
– Robert A. Heinlein

“Among other evils which being unarmed brings you, it causes you to be despised.”
– Charlton Heston

“We would just go out and line up a bunch of cans and shoot with rifles, handguns and at times, submachine guns… When I was a kid it was a controlled atmosphere, we weren’t shooting at humans… we were shooting at cans and bottles mostly. I will most certainly take my kids out for target practice.”
– Johnny Depp

“But if someone has a gun and is trying to kill you … it would be reasonable to shoot back with your own gun.”
– Dalai Lama

“A woman who demands further gun control legislation is like a chicken who roots for Colonel Sanders.”
– Larry Elder

“The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”
– G. K. Chesterton

” … the right to defend one’s home and one’s person when attacked has been guaranteed through the ages by common law.”
– Martin Luther King

“That rifle on the wall of the labourer’s cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there.”
– George Orwell

“In England, if you commit a crime, the police don’t have a gun and you don’t have a gun. If you commit a crime, the police will say ‘Stop, or I’ll say stop again.'”

– Christian Slater

“A sword never kills anybody; it is a tool in the killer’s hand.”
– Lucius Annaeus Seneca

“I will teach my children weapons and warfare, so they might teach their children science and law, so they might teach their children art and literature.”
– Unknown Greek

“Freedom is the sure possession of those alone who have the courage to defend it.”
– Pericles

“The Nation that makes a great distinction between its scholars and its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools.”
– Thucydides

“Though defensive violence will always be ‘a sad necessity’ in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men.”
– St. Augustine

“A free people ought to be armed.”
– George Washington

“Firearms are second only to the Constitution in importance; they are the peoples’ liberty’s teeth.”
– George Washington

“A free people ought not only to be armed and disciplined, but they should have sufficient arms and ammunition to maintain a status of independence from any who might attempt to abuse them, which would include their own government.”
– George Washington

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.”
– Benjamin Franklin

“The strongest reason for people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.”
– Thomas Jefferson (quoting 18th century criminologist Cesare Beccaria)

“A strong body makes the mind strong. As to the species of exercises, I advise the gun. While this gives moderate exercise to the body, it gives boldness, enterprise and independence to the mind. Games played with the ball, and others of that nature, are too violent for the body and stamp no character on the mind. Let your gun therefore be your constant companion of your walks.” – Thomas Jefferson

“The Constitution of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“On every occasion [of Constitutional interpretation] let us carry ourselves back to the time when the Constitution was adopted, recollect the spirit manifested in the debates, and instead of trying [to force] what meaning may be squeezed out of the text, or invented against it, [instead let us] conform to the probable one in which it was passed.”
– Thomas Jefferson

“Arms in the hands of citizens may be used at individual discretion in private self defense.”
– John Adams:

“To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them.”
– George Mason

“I ask sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians.”
– George Mason (father of the Bill of Rights and The Virginia Declaration of Rights)

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe.”
– Noah Webster

“Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority … the Constitution was made to guard against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.”
– Noah Webster

“The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops.”
– Noah Webster

“A government resting on the minority is an aristocracy, not a Republic, and could not be safe with a numerical and physical force against it, without a standing army, an enslaved press and a disarmed populace.”
– James Madison

“Americans have the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the people of other countries, whose leaders are afraid to trust them with arms.”
– James Madison

“The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed. A well regulated militia, composed of the body of the people, trained to arms, is the best and most natural defense of a free country.”
– James Madison

“The ultimate authority resides in the people alone.”
– James Madison

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”
– William Pitt

“To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of the people always possess arms, and be taught alike, especially when young, how to use them.”
– Richard Henry Lee

“A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves … and include all men capable of bearing arms.”
– Richard Henry Lee

“Guard with jealous attention the public liberty. Suspect everyone who approaches that jewel. Unfortunately, nothing will preserve it but downright force. Whenever you give up that force, you are ruined…. The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able might have a gun.”
– Patrick Henry

“This may be considered as the true palladium of liberty…. The right of self defense is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any color or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction.”
– St. George Tucker

“… arms … discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property…. Horrid mischief would ensue were (the law-abiding) deprived the use of them.”
– Thomas Paine

“The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms.”
– Samual Adams

“The right of the citizens to keep and bear arms has justly been considered, as the palladium of the liberties of a republic; since it offers a strong moral check against the usurpation and arbitrary power of rulers; and will generally, even if these are successful in the first instance, enable the people to resist and triumph over them.”
– Joseph Story

“What, Sir, is the use of a militia? It is to prevent the establishment of a standing army, the bane of liberty …. Whenever Governments mean to invade the rights and liberties of the people, they always attempt to destroy the militia, in order to raise an army upon their ruins.”
– Rep. Elbridge Gerry of Massachusetts

” … for it is a truth, which the experience of all ages has attested, that the people are commonly most in danger when the means of insuring their rights are in the possession of those of whom they entertain the least suspicion.”
– Alexander Hamilton

“When a strong man, fully armed, guards his house, his possessions are safe.”
– Luke 11:21

“Jesus said, ‘But now whoever has a purse or a bag, must take it and whoever does not have a sword must sell his cloak and buy one.'”
– Luke 22:36

“If a thief is caught breaking in and is struck so he dies, the defender is not guilty of bloodshed.”
– Exodus 22:2

“A patriot without religion in my estimation is as great a paradox as an honest Man without the fear of God. Is it possible that he whom no moral obligations bind, can have any real Good Will towards Men? Can he be a patriot who, by an openly vicious conduct, is undermining the very bonds of Society? … The Scriptures tell us “righteousness exalteth a Nation.”
– Abigail Adams

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”
– John Adams

“The thing that separates the American Christian from every other person on earth is the fact that he would rather die on his feet, than live on his knees!”
– George Washington

“God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it.”
– Daniel Webster

“Though defensive violence will always be ‘a sad necessity’ in the eyes of men of principle, it would be still more unfortunate if wrongdoers should dominate just men.”
– St. Augustine

“Without doubt one is allowed to resist against the unjust aggressor to one’s life, one’s goods or one’s physical integrity; sometimes, even ’til the aggressor’s death…. In fact, this act is aimed at preserving one’s life or one’s goods and to make the aggressor powerless. Thus, it is a good act, which is the right of the victim.”
– Thomas Aquinas

“When the law disallows both the means and moral authority to defend one’s self and property, crime and violence fill the void between common sense and the hoped for utopia.”
– JD Filkins

“Keeping and bearing arms is not only a fundamental right; it is a fundamental duty upon which all liberty and sovereignty is based.”
– Donald L. Cline

“A shoot-out is better than a massacre!”
– David M. Bennett

“It is a lesson of history that it is ethically, morally, and philosophically impossible to have too many personal weapons, whether they be edged, impact or projectile.”
– David W. Loeffler

“Nothing puts the dignity in personal dignity (or the freedom in personal freedom) like the self in self-rule.”
– John Longenecker

“No law ever prevented a crime.”
– Anonymous

“Those gun control activists advocating exchanging a liberty for safety should recall that the safest place on earth is solitary confinement at Leavenworth.”
– Rand T. Lennox

“The gun control extremist has at least two things in common with the Islamic extremist. He has a willingness to die for his fundamental beliefs. And he has the sanctimony to demand that others go with him.”
– Dr. Mike Adams

“Good intentions will always be pleaded for every assumption of authority. It is hardly too strong to say that the Constitution was made to guard the people against the dangers of good intentions. There are men in all ages who mean to govern well, but they mean to govern. They promise to be good masters, but they mean to be masters.”
– Daniel Webster

“You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind each blade of grass.”
– Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto

“The philosophy of gun control: Teenagers are roaring through town at 90MPH, where the speed limit is 25. Your solution is to lower the speed limit to 20.”
– Sam Cohen (inventor of the neutron bomb)

“The tragic history of civilian disarmament cries a warning against any systematic attempts to render innocent citizens ill-equipped to defend themselves from tyrant terrorists, despots or oppressive majorities,”
– Daniel Schmutter

“If the constitutional right to keep and bear arms is to mean anything, it must, as a general matter, permit a person to possess, carry and sometimes conceal arms to maintain the security of his private residence or privately operated business.”
– David Prosser (Wisconsin Supreme Court justice)

“As a card-carrying member of the liberal media, producing this piece was an eye opening experience. I have to admit that I saw guns as inherently evil, violence begets violence, and so on. I have learned, however, that in trained hands, just the presence of a gun can be a real “man stopper.” I am sorry that women have had to resort to this, but wishing it wasn’t so won’t make it any safer out there.”
– Jill Fieldstein (CBS producer, Street Stories: Women and Guns)

“If you’ve got to resist, you’re chances of being hurt are less the more lethal your weapon. If that were my wife, would I want her to have a .38 Special in her hand? Yeah.”
– Dr. Arthur Kellerman (famous gun grabber)

“If gun laws in fact worked, the sponsors of this type of legislation should have no difficulty drawing upon long lists of examples of crime rates reduced by such legislation. That they cannot do so after a century and a half of trying — that they must sweep under the rug the southern attempts at gun control in the 1870-1910 period, the northeastern attempts in the 1920-1939 period, the attempts at both Federal and State levels in 1965-1976 — establishes the repeated, complete and inevitable failure of gun laws to control serious crime.”
– Senator Orrin Hatch

“Certainly one of the chief guarantees of freedom under any government, no matter how popular and respected, is the right of citizens to keep and bear arms. … the right of citizens to bear arms is just one more guarantee against arbitrary government, and one more safeguard against a tyranny which now appears remote in America, but which historically has proved to be always possible.”
– Sen. Hubert Humphrey

“Today, we need a nation of Minutemen, citizens who are not only prepared to take arms, but citizens who regard the preservation of freedom as the basic purpose of their daily life and who are willing to consciously work and sacrifice for that freedom.”
– John F. Kennedy

“By calling attention to ‘a well regulated militia,’ ‘the security of the nation,’ and the right of each citizen ‘to keep and bear arms,’ our founding fathers recognized the essentially civilian nature of our economy… The Second Amendment still remains an important declaration of our basic civilian-military relationships in which every citizen must be ready to participate in the defense of his country. For that reason I believe the Second Amendment will always be important.”
– John F. Kennedy

“Just as the First and Fourth Amendment secure individual rights of speech and security respectively, the Second Amendment protects an individual right to keep and bear arms. This view of the text comports with the all but unanimous understanding of the Founding Fathers.”
– Attorney General John Ashcroft

“There’s no question that weapons in the hands of the public have prevented acts of terror or stopped them.”
– Israeli Police Inspector General Shlomo Aharonisky

“The great body of our citizens shoot less as times goes on. We should encourage rifle practice among schoolboys, and indeed among all classes, as well as in the military services by every means in our power. Thus, and not otherwise, may we be able to assist in preserving peace in the world… The first step – in the direction of preparation to avert war if possible, and to be fit for war if it should come – is to teach men to shoot!”
– President Theodore Roosevelt

“The ruling class doesn’t care about public safety. Having made it very difficult for States and localities to police themselves, having left ordinary citizens with no choice but to protect themselves as best they can, they now try to take our guns away. In fact they blame us and our guns for crime. This is so wrong that it cannot be an honest mistake.”
– Sen. Malcolm Wallop

“One of the arguments that had been made against gun control was that an armed citizenry was the final bulwark against tyranny. My response had been that untrained, lightly-armed non-soldiers couldn’t prevail against a modern army. I had concluded that the qualitative difference in firepower was such that all of the previous rules of guerilla war no longer applied. Both Vietnam and Afghanistan demonstrated that wasn’t true. Repelling an armed invasion is not something that American citizens are likely to face, but the possibility of a despotic government coming to power is not wholly unthinkable. One of the sequelae of Vietnam was the rise of the Khmer Rouge and slaughter of perhaps a million Cambodian citizens. Those citizens, like the Jews in Germany or the Armenians in Turkey, were unarmed and thus utterly and completely defenseless against police and paramilitary. An armed minority was able to kill and terrorize unarmed victims with total impunity.”
– Paul Hagar

“Make good scouts of yourselves, become good rifle shots so that if it becomes necessary that you defend your families and your country that you can do it.”
– Lord Baden-Powell, Scouting For Boys

“Among the many misdeeds of the British rule in India, history will look upon the act of depriving a whole nation of arms, as the blackest.”
– Mahatma Gandhi

“Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and passed on … or we will spend our sunset years telling our children’s children what it was like in the United States when men were free.”
– Ronald Reagan

“I am concerned for the security of our great Nation; not so much because of any threat from without, but because of the insidious forces working from within.”
– General Douglas MacArthur

“A system of licensing and registration is the perfect device to deny gun ownership to the bourgeoisie.”
– Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

“Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.”
– Unknown


Dayum, this one is off her meds or needs a ‘reset’!!!

The cognitive dissonance is strong in this one.

PoliticsGirl is an apparently upper-middle-class, middle-aged suburban white woman — in other words, the bread and butter of the Democrat Party base. After spin class, it appears she poured herself a generous glass of red wine to wash down her Xanax and went on a paradoxical rant against democracy in defense of democracy.

I know most people here don’t follow baseball all that much, but Ken Griffey, Jr. has still got the skills! He’s coaching Team USA and was talked into stepping into the batting cage after 13 years away from it. And he hit one out of the park!!!


Book promos…

First up is a nifty little short story from Kelly Grayson The Battle of Waffle Haus 814

As always click on the cover for the Amazon link!

The blurb-

Ever been to Waffle Haus at 3:00 am and… wondered… about some of the specimens of humanity observed there? Well, there’s a good chance they weren’t human at all, but thanks to the good graces of Faerie, all supernatural creatures look more-or-less human while they enjoy their scattered, smothered and covered hash browns. They don’t always get along, though, and sometimes it requires extraordinary men and women to keep the peace.

There’s a new Sheriff at Waffle Haus, and he’s not going to take any guff from the clientele.

Next up is Lawdog with a re-release of his The LawDog Files- Revised and Expanded

Note: This one actually pays LawDog, not the pirates that are still pushing his original version.

The blurb-

The entire sworn personnel complement of the department consisted of the Sheriff, the Chief Deputy and two patrol deputies.

That was it.

I miss that county.

To me, law enforcement is tracking an Alzheimer’s patient for four hours through the boonies after he wandered away from home; answering a 911 call because a rattlesnake is about to eat a nest full of baby birds; and scaring off ghosts because the lady of the house lost her husband ten years ago, her children live out of state, and you are the only outside contact she gets.

For me, being a cop is about keeping an eye out for a black-and-white dog of indeterminate ancestry, red bandanna, whose 9-year-old owner is crying his eyes out.

Most new officers will start out in medium-to-large cities/counties and never know what it’s like to patrol when your only back-up is 45 miles away as the cruiser drives – and asleep in bed, to boot.

So, I tell stories and hope that through those, the Gentle Reader can get a glimpse of what it’s like to be a Western small-town, rural Peace Officer.

Next up, Peter Nealan has the next Pallas Group Solutions book up for pre-order The Dragon and the Skull

It drops the end of this month!

The blurb-

As Threats Continue to Converge…

And the Bodies Pile Up…

There’s No Choice but to Go On The Hunt

Actions have consequences, and Chris Grant and the men of Pallas Group Solutions know it. After the fight on the border, the cartels are going to be out for blood.

The only way forward is to hit them before they can hit PGS.

While some contractors go on the offensive in the Southwest and Northern Mexico, others are tracing the Chinese connection. They’ll find a web of subversion, terror, and murder they hardly suspected.

But Pallas Group Solutions hires hunters.

Will they be tough enough to face both the Chinese Dragon and the Narco Death’s Head?

You’ll love this action thriller because the action is as savage as the twists are sudden!

And last, but not least, Larry Correia’s next Saga of the Forgotten Warrior is up for pre-order Tower of Silence will drop April 4th

The blurb-


The assassination of the Chief Judge has pushed the Capitol to the edge. The Great Extermination has spread to all the land. The casteless must be annihilated.

Their only hope is the fallen Protector Ashok Vadal. But Vadal is being held prisoner on the island of Fortress. In order to save those who need him most, he must escape and find his way across the demon-infested sea and return to Thera, the prophet of an illegal and forgotten god. It is she who has sent the Sons of the Black Sword to war against the warrior caste, hoping to buy time until Vadal’s return.

But as the chaos swirls, Grand Inquisitor Omand Vokkan launches a coup to install Lord Protector Devedas as his puppet king. Devedas has no intention of being anyone’s puppet, but it may not matter. For Vokkan has struck a secret bargain with a demon. Vokkan will destroy the casteless for this ancient being; in exchange, he will be granted the power of the ancient gods.

Ashok Vadal, Thera, and the Sons of the Black Sword face foes both human and supernatural, Byzantine political intrigue and bloody hand-to-hand combat, gods and demons alike. But Vadal is a warrior with a warrior’s heart, and woe to those who would stand in his way—man, god, demon, or otherwise!

To my way of thinking, there’s not a bad one in the bunch… not that I’m biased or anything… LOL

Seriously, go read them all.

Busy, busy…

Trying to finish a novella to get it up next week…

Go read the folks on the sidebar!

Oh, and here’s a prospective cover, as always, many thanks to Tina Garceau for the super job on the cover art!!!


Basic research 101… And inability to read maps…

What happens when you elect people to office who have only the most tenuous grip on reality, and actually think that Rachel Levine is a female admiral, Lia Thomas is a champion female swimmer, and Old Joe Biden is a competent, capable president of the United States? They’re finding out the hard way in Newark, N.J., these days. The city was about to become a Sister City with the nation of Kailasa and sign a cultural trade agreement with Kailasa representatives, but then a small detail ended up ruining the party: Kailasa doesn’t exist. It’s a fictional place.

I literally… sigh…


Especially for those who have e-bikes or scooters for the kids…

E-bike lithium-ion batteries have already ignited 25 fires within New York City limits this year, killing at least two and injuring 36. According to officials, that was quadruple the number of fires sparked by these batteries over the same timeframe last year.

Full article, HERE from PJ Media.

And a Twitter feed from that same article showing how quickly one of these things goes up!

If you have one of these, you ‘might’ want to think about keeping it outside rather than inside your house.


OBTW, it’s also the Ides of March. Ware Caesar…
