    Doing this now in a rather odd way - using very short passages. I'll explain as things progress.

      @scooterbird Sometimes breaking a big job down into small pieces is a great way to get it done. Good luck!

        @taylor The idea originally was that it was going to be a comic strip; something like four to six panels each episode. But I couldn't find an artist. So, plan B is just to write the episodes - 500 words a day, or on each ep if I can't do it daily. Once I have a few under the belt, I will probably open a blog and just start posting them, one at a time. Let the story develop over time, and see where it takes me.

    It's fitting to pay tribute to the heroes of the past this way, I think. It occurred to me yesterday that I've never visited the grave of Edgar Allan Poe, either, and he's right in town. That's something I should plan to do as well.

    This is Pete Gray. Any time I'm ready to give up at anything, I'm going to look at this picture.

    Pete Gray is an inspiration to me. He only played one year in Major League Baseball, in 1945 for the St. Louis Browns before they became the modern day Orioles - but he did it with only one arm. Any time I think about giving up on things because they're too difficult for me, I think about Pete Gray.

    And while I'm in the Wilkes-Barre area, I'm going to visit Romanelli's Bakery in Wyoming, Pennsylvania. It's owned and operated by the daughter of a friend of mine - a guy who ran for Senator on the Green Party ticket and should have won. And the food there looks really amazing.

    Any major dude with half a heart surely will tell you, my friend
    Any minor world that breaks apart falls together again
    When the demon is at your door
    In the morning it won't be there no more
    Any major dude will tell you

    There is no coming to consciousness without pain. People will do anything, no matter how absurd, to avoid facing their own soul. One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.

    After a bit of hunting around and dropping off my business card in various establishments around town, I have a very good prospect. The bar manager said they were looking for somebody to run trivia...well, here I am!

    They will be having a manager's meeting on Friday. Hopefully I'll get some positive news from that!

    Setback. The bar that I was going to be running my trivia game in was closed yesterday; the sheriff's department showed up and chained the doors shut. Apparently there was some kind of problem with the landlord and the lease.

    I found out about this yesterday afternoon, so I went from ready to perform my quiz and get some needed extra pocket money to...well, nothing. So, it's back to the drawing board. I now have a ready-to-run weekly trivia quiz, which I'll be shopping to some bars and restaurants in the area.

    If you are in central Maryland, own a pub or restaurant, and want to have a great trivia quiz running in your establishment - contact me here!

    All the printouts are done for the "handout" portions of the quiz and the scoresheets. Got the speakers - I'll be borrowing them to start with. (Need some cables.) Almost done with the second quiz for the week after next.

    I'm really doing this thing...

    First quiz is written...I'm going with a general knowledge theme that goes from really simple to really hard by the last question. Now I just have to lay my hands on some powered speakers (already have the rest of the audio equipment) and I'll be in business...

    Question about this one: are there any organizations other than the Red Cross which teach these classes? I don't mind taking it from them, but I don't really have the money to be shelling out for it. I was hoping there would be free training, or very low-cost training, available.

    Things are progressing slowly, but steadily. We'll be obtaining the list of all the registrees in our county soon. Then there will be some outreach to the underserved and (in our current climate especially) vulnerable members of the electorate. We've identified a few local activists who might be interested in running as Green in 2018, and we'll be talking to them individually over the next month or two.

    This is getting a bit more involved than I thought...I'm looking at a pretty large group of characters, much like a Shakespearean play (which it began as very, very roughly based on). I think I'm going to top out at about 15 characters...

    Right now, I'm just going with the plotting of the story, but I've gotten quite a bit done just in that part alone. It takes place in New York, so I might take the train up there sometime to scout out various locations and just take in the ambience of the place.
