We’ve had fairly decent February weather in Wisconsin lately, so I got up at 4am this morning to check out the cosmos in my telescope. There were no bugs and no Moon (which tends to obscure the stars), so I had a great time! The star of the night (pardon the scientifically inaccurate pun) was Jupiter and its moons. Check them out!

I can’t accept a bigoted President who bullies and lies, so I wrote a protest song about Donald Trump. I’m going to send a copy to my Congressman, Paul Ryan:

Talk about some unusual places to do some editing… I’ve been hopping around the U.S. and Canada! But it’s been fun.

I’ve been hard at work on my Star Trek books, the first of which will be available in September… but I did set the project aside for a couple weeks to paint my kitchen cabinets white. It was hard work, and I’ll be happy to get back to writing!

Apparently, Christmas could not wait for Thanksgiving. We woke up to our first snowfall of the winter today. The dog is in heaven.

I’ve been doing a lot of work on the house, as well as my writing projects. Sorry for the lack of updates! Here you can see the bedroom, before and after. I changed the paint scheme, added a hardwood floor, bought new curtains, and added new decorations to give it all a spring-like feel.
