@Douglewars I almost never get a chance to wear my parka any more.

@Douglewars Glad you're okay. Guess you'll be moving slowly for a couple of days.-)

@Douglewars Gotcha. So your options are: find separate faucets, hope a single faucet will cover both holes, or buy a new sink.

@Douglewars Was it one of those three-pronged towel hangers? I've been looking for one of those with no luck.

RIP Apostrophe
Grammar of the Day - Apostrophe

The Apostrophe Protection Society website was created in 2001, and it looks like it. Never mind. It's the content that matters, not the style. Right? That's how it used to be, anyway. In the good old days when substance mattered more than appearance. And (coincidentally?) people know how to use apostrophes. Go to the site and have a look. It has examp

Mammatocumulus
Mammatocumulus are impressive clouds. They are described as eerie, even foreboding. When you see them you get the feeling that something powerful is behind them, that something is going to happen. It's true. Something powerful is there.

Mammatocumulus are associated with cumulonimbus, the most powerful of clouds. These are the thunderclouds, the ones that go boiling up, growing to gre

Green Comet goes to University
At the Universidad de Costa Rica they have been studying Green Comet, the first novel in my Green Comet trilogy. As a result a student, Monica Feng Wu, an undergraduate in English as a Second Language, has written an essay analysing chapter thirteen of the book. Her teacher, Professor Roberto Savaria, advised me and sent me a copy of the essay. Ms Wu has kindly agreed to allow me to share it
