Fashion, a Podcast, and a Book Signing

For today’s Saturday Special, here are a few things we did this week: I started the week blogging about the feisty side of my personality, which led me to the snowbird lifestyle 20 years ago — a lifestyle I’ve embraced ever since. It seems writing that blog Monday gave me an extra dose of feisty, because […]

Summertime and the Snowbird Living is Easy

Saturday Special: Fascinated or Frightened?

Over on my blog this week, we explored a couple of fascinating and frightening topics. 1) The idea of creating a database of faces that can be analyzed by technology is both fascinating and frightening.

Who Says We Only Have 5 Senses?

You know what the traditional five senses are: sight, smell, taste, hearing, and touch. So what sense is FBI Special Agent Carlos Gaspar using when, in Jack in the Green, we learn: “It was his sixth sense that rankled.” -Jack in the Green At the time, Gaspar is arriving at Tampa’s MacDill Air Force Base […]

Won’t You Join Me Next Year at ThrillerFest 2015?

It’s hard to believe another ThrillerFest has come and gone. Even harder to believe this one was the ninth ThrillerFest and ITW’s 10th anniversary. ITW did not exist until late 2004.
