Be not forgetful to entertain strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.

Hello all. I simply cannot believe that I have neglected for so long to shamelessly promote my book here. Please take a moment to visit my site by clicking here and have a look. I'll be waiting for the flood of book orders. But all joking aside, orders excite me, but I like feedback too. If you would never buy my book, tell me why. If you liked or disliked something about my site ... tell me. I'd love too develop a "Top 5 reasons people won't buy this book" list.

"I have to remind myself that some birds aren't meant to be caged. Their feathers are just too bright. And when they fly away, the part of you that knows it was a sin to lock them up DOES rejoice. Still, the place you live in is that much more drab and empty that they're gone. I guess I just miss my friend."

I am not a fan of guns. I got nothing against hunters having guns, but for those of you who think an armed populace is a good thing ... we tried that. Dodge City, Tombstone.
I am a father of a beautiful little girl ... okay, at almost 16 she's not so little anymore.
I like the "we" versus "them" mentality. so long as the "we" is "we, the inhabitant's of earth."
Any man that gets married in the United States is a fool. You are essentially risking all you've ever earned and all you will ever earn on the toss of a coin. Not my idea of a good gamble.
