Please Bear With Me; Site Rebuilds Under Way…

No, not the Chile Underground; why mess with perfection? However, in December I usually work hard on two things: Editing the document I built during November’s NaNoWriMo challenge, and refurbishing, reworking and relaunching some of my other websites. In this case, that includes launching a new one; The Accidental Novelist. So I’ll be posting […]

Blog Post Software Sweeps: And the Winner Is…

First, the criteria..

The software had to be cheap. (Free preferred.) It had to be easy to use. Editing, adding links and pictures, and “adjusting” HTML had to be clean. It had to make posting a snap. Bonus features I looked for included integration with a browser (I prefer Firefox, but a case could be […]

Fish 4 Friday: Chipotle Shrimp Recipe and More

I noticed a nice recipe on the website of a new friend of mine, Carla Meine, a lady who lives in Salt Lake City. She operates the site “ICCK,” or Ideal Cooking in Carla’s Kitchen. She always has recipes, and often good photos or videos of her cooking. Because the recipe involves shrimp, I […]

Da Dawgs are Back! Time to Herd Some Ducks…

Classes started today. I’ll list that as the excuse for the paucity of daily postings hereabouts. After all, as “new” faculty hereabouts, there have been more meetings than the BP disaster glee club. HR, committees, welcome this and signing that; the amount of stuff to do was frankly surprising, and I can’t really be […]

Friday Follies: Gifts for the Fun-Loving Foodie in Your Life

Gag gifts are supposed to be fun. Okay, so maybe some of them also make you gag a bit. Loosen up! It’s all in good fun. (I almost said good, clean fun. Not always, as you’ll see.)

Kotula’s advertises as “The Guys With the Goods.” Gifts galore! Some examples: A beer pager; a cell phone […]

Friday Follies: What's the Strangest Thing You Ever Ate?

I don’t know what the fascination is with strange food. There are so many wonderful dishes I haven’t had yet (and in some cases, are not likely to ever get around to trying) that I don’t go out of my way to eat Strange Stuff. The allure must be strong, though; how else can […]

Yet Another Sign of the Impending Apocalypse: CU Hits 600 Posts!

Break out the Good Hootch and warm up the squeezeboxes; it’s Time to Grill Party! The Chile Underground, the finest Underground on the whole Interwebz thingie, has reached the striking, monumental, wondrous, incomparable, and might we say, incomprehensible level of 600 posts! Yep, you’re right, that’s downright amazing. (I know, Tom; you predicted it […]

Is Grilling a Mystery to You? Then You Really Need to Read This Thriller

As many of you may know, I enjoy writing fiction. (No, I don’t include the posts hereabouts in that action. Well, mostly I don’t. Okay, okay; OFTEN I don’t. Satisfied?) My personal favorites include science fiction and action-adventure, but a good murder mystery is a joy to read. I don’t think I have the […]
