Well, they're not here ... at least, not yet. I'm hoping to come up with something in the near future. Stay tuned!

I haven't had a book event in some time, so I'm headed over to Owensboro on July 1 to catch up with friends and sign a few copies of Corporate Ties. From 6-7 pm, show up at Gambrinus Libation Emporium for a free book with a $10 purchase. If you already have a book, stop by and meet the family!

For my first post in 2013, I thought I'd remind myself that I have a website. I guess it's tough to post as much as I used to now that I have a new baby and all. I have a few updates coming soon with a book event or two, but other than that, I'm just staying busy with my day job. I guess I should sign off until I have something more relevant to offer.

Just in case you missed the invite ... party 4-7 p.m. December 26 in Louisville!

The 2012 Kentucky Book Fair begins today in Frankfort, and, well, I'm not sure if anyone knows or even cares. The idea of a book fair in Kentucky certainly appeals to me, as it should all book-lovers.

Back in 2006, I submitted "The Developers" for a spot in the fair, but I was declined. I assumed I submitted late, or perhaps there just weren't that many spots. However, after seeing photos of the actual event, and noticing the lack of media coverage, I thought that maybe it just wasn't very big and no one actually attended.

I just recently found an interesting site that combines library listings from across the world. While it's not a comprehensive list of every single library, WorldCat promotes itself as having "Over 1 billion items in more than 10,000 libraries worldwide.

That's a lot of books!

I have never heard of the term "dancing bologna" in reference to ridiculous and crazy design implementations. But if doesn't surprise me that the term exists, basically due to the amount of insane websites that have been perpetuated online.

There's a great article on DanCentury.com that describes many of these items, and unfortunately, gives examples as well.

Luckily, some of the items have died off a bit, but many still lurk, especially popup ads. The end of those will not come soon enough.

I don't consider myself an expert in too many things,

at least outside of baseball history, state capitals

and having a tendency to attract strange females. But

after extensive research on determining the best cell

phone service, maybe I have found my calling.

HA! My

calling! Get it? Anyway, I figured the least I could

do with this newfound ability is to report

When we booked our Disney trip, we didn’t consider too many hotel options. Once we made the decision to stay onsite, we looked at the cheapest Value resorts - All-Star Music, All-Star Movies and All-Star Sports. We had all but settled on All-Star Music when I found the Summer Quick Service Meal Offer. At the time we were booking, this deal was available only at Pop Century, a Value resort that is priced slightly higher than others.

Google recently announced a new product available for a number of cell phone devices called Google Latitude. The program allows you to see other people, assuming they have opted into the system, on a Google-generated map.
