Ahoy! A new chapter of CONVERGENCE is now live on

Going Overboard

Cheers! ๐Ÿฅ‚

Hey people (and other entities)! ๐Ÿ“ฃ Let's set the record straight, here:

We are NOT in Canada. ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

They denied Elena citizenship -- after 12 freaking years!

To be together, we sail between various tropical countries that allow us BOTH entry.

We have no regrets, life is how ever you live it, and wow, what an adventure!

Eh hem: to take the pressure out of that guest list planning -- keep in mind, we aren't exactly welcome in alphabet countries... USA, UK, EU, etc. either.

More astronomical humor. I saw this on a bus stop bench, outside an engineering building at an obscure university.

There is no gravity; the world sucks!

๐Ÿ”ญ Astronomical humor that does NOT involve the seventh planet: ๐Ÿ”ต

๐Ÿคฉ Behold the poor fool who dreams of reaching the stars, and with arms outstretched, burns his/her/their/its hands on Proxima Centauri ๐ŸŒŸ

๐Ÿ† โšฝ ๐Ÿƒโ€โ™€๏ธ ๐ŸŽ—๏ธ
Achievement and personal success are empowering!

โ›” ๐Ÿšง โ— โ˜ ๏ธ ๐Ÿšซ
Empowerment is very dangerous!

๐Ÿฅ• ๐Ÿ™ ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ ๐Ÿค‘
Unless, of course, it is owned, controlled and doled out to you by your betters.

Canada is a brand, an exclusive club. ๐Ÿ‡จ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

Nobody in Canada, other than my Canadian partner, wanted me there. I don't promote their brand, fit their optics, nor do I care about it. I am clearly not 'Canada' material and by denying me citizenship after 12 years, they simply didn't let me into their club. ๐Ÿ—๏ธ

I am rather grateful, because I can't see how I could be honest to myself and be 'Canadian.'

Tomorrow You Die!

The latest, and long awaited, chapter of CONVERGENCE is live, with pictures and everything!

Read it. Go on... I dare ya!

My mom just asked: โ“

What is Mastodon? ๐Ÿ˜

I just answered: ๐Ÿ“ฃ

Mastodon is like Twitter but not owned by anyone. It's social media for cretins, like me, who don't like media manipulation, invasion of privacy, aggressive marketing, and insane narcissism. Really, it's social media for the un-trendy. ๐Ÿค“

I was kinda thinking Mastodon IS social media. Just not the exploitive, invasive variety.

Maybe it comes down to letting the "real" social media platforms exploit and penetrate your very being, (sell your soul) to get anywhere.

Yeah, sign me up! ๐Ÿคฎ

What do you tell people that clamor, "You will never get anywhere without a Social Media presence!"?

We got screwed by a paparazzi we thought was a friend ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

Elena and I don't know, for how many more years we can go on without a country to call home.

We are thinking Russia ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡บ is the only place for us, if Pres Putin would let us in.

We are so very lonely and tired.

KFC has come up with a new menu item:


๐Ÿ“ It's full of right wings, red necks, and assholes! ๐Ÿ“

THE TWILIGHT ZONE - is the latest chapter of CONVERGENCE, and it's up there WITH pictures now.

I know, I promised you a chapter called "Tomorrow You Die" but, by krikey, it would have ended up being way too long. However, this chapter, describing events leading up to the ominous TYD chapter (which really is next!) are just as important: some funny, some heartbreaking.

Eh hem... to those parties expecting us to be ALWAYS online:

Yes, we really ARE on a tropical island in the Caribbean. And yes, we really ARE country hopping to stay together. And no, USA & Canada won't let Elena in with me, and Russia won't let me in with Elena... so, technically, we ARE having one heck of a great adventure!

That doesn't ALWAYS guarantee 4g connectivity.


The next chapter of CONVERGENCE is out there.

And just when you thought it was safe to go back online...

I know, I promised you the thrilling "Tomorrow You Die!" chapter, but krikey, it was getting too long. So, the thrills and chills wait for the next installment. Meantime, you can bust a gut finding out what it takes to float your boat when you're left high and dry in the Eastern Med.

TRIAL BY SEA -- The next chapter of CONVERGENCE is now available on

First time Elena had ever been on a sailboat is when we went out for a test drive in it. Damn near ended Elena's sailing days, then and there. Wait until you meet the skipper we hired to drive the thing. Everybody who knows French men, probably knows this guy!

OCEANIS - the latest chapter of CONVERGENCE is now live and kicking on

It's a total bummer to give away spoilers, but it's a bit of a riot when a couple of pie-eyed woman walk into a brokerage, looking to buy a yacht that can get them to the other side of the world.

Now imagine this scene taking place in a devoutly Muslim country! Ahhh, good times, good times...

A Piece of Cake -- a new chapter of CONVERGENCE has just gone live, on

Don't worry, this cake isn't fattening!

We've become a six minute segment on Russia24 -- Russia's state broadcaster.

Can't buy publicity like this! We even have Putin's attention. I wonder if he'll be reading my books. I wonder if he'll write a review?

Elena sparked a media-storm in Ukraine & Russia by responding to Ukraine's president elect's promise of citizenship to persecuted Russians.

Ukraine's president elect is surprisingly silent on this issue, (hoping it will go away?) while Putin's media-army is busy pushing Elena's request to the top of the charts. They are trying to make Ukraine eat its words by accepting a Russian (according to social media) considered less than worthless.

Here's some of the reaction:
