SEC Rules

Some one pointed out to me that, after Saturday's games, shouldn't Georgia (defeated Georgia Tech) and South Carolina (defeated Clemson) play in the ACC Championship Game. I liked that one, a lot.


The last play of "The Drive"

Alabama beats Auburn. All is right with the world.

Thanksgiving Dinner

Finally prepped and cooking: Standing Rib Roast, mashed potatoes, corn-on-the-cob, steamed baby artichokes, & Yorkshire puddings. The pre-meal 'hotdog course': four types of sausage from Fresh Market.

This fall's best rationalization: By letting the yard/field/pasture grow wild, I'm developing a natural habitat for rabbits and growing dandelion greens for the turtles.


Sunday - all Fringe, all the time

Moo Shu Pork and we finished off the first season of Fringe, which is my favorite fictional show on television right now.

Over at I'd Offer You Some.



My alma mater, Alabama, is undefeated at 11-0 headed into our rivalry game with Auburn. We already have a spot in the SEC championship game vs. Florida locked up. It seems like a dream.

Nursing this shingles thing. Laid on couch and watched Turner Classic movies, Runway, Dr. Drew, and ESPN. I devolved very quickly.

Posted at The Blog at GateTree: Revision? -

My latest story, “Alchemy”, is probably my best story, and is really my first at full short story length, right at 5000 words...So, do I go back and revise this story, as has been suggested by very qualified people? (more)


Disabled List

I contracted a mild case of the shingles this week. On my face!. It seems to have been slowed down, however. Hoping I won't go all Elephant Man.


Fringe Season One Marathon

Made it through episode ten - a great show.
