Can't figure out why I can't post now

I just tried to post a bit about the Fidel link being gone, but for some reason it wouldn't post. Hmm. I wonder if this one will.

Oops, the Fidel debate is over...

Looks like funtrivia pulled the debate over Fidel Castro. Got a little too heated I suppose. I must try to bite my tongue a little bit harder and keep things calmer. Well, I'll be posting on The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints tomorrow, and I believe that it will be a much calmer thread--at least on my end of things! And I ended up quitting my position as a columnist at The Muse Marquee.
That should give me a bit of breathing room for the time being.

Debate over Fidel

I've been debating for the past couple of days with some folks at , over the atrocities, or lack thereof of Fidel Castro and his regime. The discussion can be viewed here- clicky clicky.
I hope you enjoyed that interchange. Not much happening in my world other than work, but in the world of sports, Barry Bonds is near eclipsing Ruth for second place in career home runs. I hope the steroid taking cheater (uh, alegedly) never makes it past Hank Aaron.

Here's a tip for guitar teachers. I've recently downloaded Nick Minnion's two e-books. How to Make a Living Teaching Guitar, and Fifty Lessons. The first is $19 and the second is $35, so they're kind of pricey, but I think they are well-worth it--especially the fifty lessons book. Here's the link:

Web Filtering Software

One thing I hate is the web filtering software blocking out the word girls from my posts if I forget to turn off the filter. I just had to go back and edit a post because of this. ARRRGGGHHH!! It's caused me a lot of headaches when I've forgotten about it and then shot off an e-mail or two to prospective editors, with my stories cut and pasted in and the words deleted from the manuscript. It makes a guy feel real idiotic.

College Graduation

I'd like to shout out to my daughter, Rebecca, who graduated from the University of Utah today. One thing I wonder is why in the world these graduation ceremonies need to be so long? We had a ceremony this morning that lasted from about 8 am to 11 am, then we had a brief break for lunch and came back for another ceremony (her individual college ceremony) that lasted from 1:45 until about 3:30 or so. Too long! Anyway, here are a couple of pics of my daughter and my granddaughter, Gillian.
And yeah, here's my ugly mug (up at the top) playing the guitar too!
