Arachnis Deathicus

This is the SECOND TIME it’s happened.  I grab my brain bucket, pull on the gloves and jump on my Magna.  I cruise around the corner, up the street, and hit the highway.  When I hit 60MPH, the airflow through my helmet’s vents, dislodges anything that crawled into them.

What happens is I get up to speed, and all the sudden there is a Speeider crawling on my face shield.  Normal reaction is to swat it.  Well, tonight I swatted it.  It of course, being INSIDE my face shield… was unhurt.  So it jumped onto my face.  On my cheek.  Then it ran under my eyeglasses.  (Insert the “Scream Like A Girl” sound effect)

At 60 Miles Per Hour.   There it is.  On my eye.  Under a face shield, and glasses, and there’s not a damn thing I can do about it until I calmly pull over and stop.   BTW, my bike can make a stop from 60 in about 5 feet.

Kindle?

If you have a Kindle, or if you have a PC or Mac or Smart Phone and downloaded the Kindle e-reader, I got something for you.

My brother is a Prolific Writer.  Get his books.  They are cheap and Good Reads…

I have to admit that I really like his ghost story: Behind the Shroud.  In fact, he has characters that make a cameo appearance in “Privateer”, one of the books I have in the works.  Gorgon is also a very awesome work of Fantasy that takes a different look at fantasy “monsters”.   His books are good, people.  Worth the downloads.  And quite frankly, he could use the support since he’s basically an out of work Substitute Teacher here during Summer Vacation.  (also, he’s working on Gorgon II, so you’re going to want to catch up.)

Everything I needed to know about Huntsman

Is summed up right here. 25K to Harry Reid?  Let’s also not forget he dropped being the Utah State Governor so he could accept Obama’s appointment to be Ambassador to China.  Yeah, I don’t think I could play ball with Huntsman.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I appreciate the Huntsman family and everything they have done for the State of Utah… The Huntsman Cancer Institute is the best in the nation.  When my Grandfather was stricken with cancer, he went there… and he was treated with the utmost dignity and careful attention… better than any hospital treating any patient I have ever seen.  I appreciate that greatly.

But I could never vote for any Huntsman for any office.  Sorry.
