Why Deep Space Nine is the best Star Trek Series

April 30, 2017


Deep Space Nine (DS9) has long been my favorite Star Trek series. I don’t say that lightly, not at all. When it comes to ST, I really and truly love them all. Star Trek: The Original Series, (TOS) was the one that started it all. It left the airwaves almost twenty years before Star Trek: […]

A Few Monday Musings

August 23, 2015


First, the BIG NEWS- I am a grandfather! My daughter Taylor gave birth to a beautiful baby girl last Friday, Melina Vess Marie Ferguson entered the world at 12:07PM weighing in at 8 LBS & 10 OZs.

A Few Sunday Musings

August 16, 2015


Billy Bob Thornton played my hometown last night and I didn’t go dammit. If you didn’t know it, Billy Bob isn’t just an Academy Award winning actor, he is also a musician and songwriter with his own band, The Boxmasters.

Whenever politicians give BIG speeches, your states of the union, state, city, etc., at your campaign announcements, basically any speech that’s called an […]

Who Turned off the Sun?

January 4, 2015


‘Sunshine on my shoulders makes me happy…’ – John Denver The weather in the waning days of 2014 and the beginning of this brand-new year has sucked the life right out of me. Seriously, it feels like the rain and grey skies have become vampires, only instead of blood, these vampires drain energy, the will […]

Admonishing Batman

September 23, 2014


Batman lives in my house. Not Bruce Wayne of DC Comic, Adam West/Micheal Keaton/Christian Bale/Ben Affleck fame (no disrespect George Clooney/Val Kilmer). No, this Batman is a dog, the son of my Chihuahua Coco. Let’s call it a youthful indiscretion on her part. I call it that because it sounds better than admitting the truth; […]
