Happy belated Pencil Day!

My friend, confidant, sometime tabletop game designing/spitballing partner, and all-around best bud told me earlier this week that the following day, March 30th (read also 30 March for the more internationally accustomed date writers among us), was Pencil Day. And like a clod, I let it pass without any fanfare. Typical. Suffice to say, I’ve…

What I read this month

I got more read than I expected to in March, given the (seemingly suddenly) quick, time-gobbling ramp-up to a major home reno and trying to find a place to live while that’s happening.

Taking me to the…

A new look for the joint

Regulars here may notice that I freshened up the site with a new look. What do you think?

World Book Day 2021
