This is my personal blog, on which I talk about a variety of topics purely as they catch my fancy. Some topics are serious, others whimsical. I love comments and questions so don't be shy, just courteous, even if you don't agree with me. I have another blog, The Story Template, on which I post writing-related topics on Tuesdays and Fridays.

Let's see, a bit about me... I'm married with two children, and spend much time taking care of our family. In my life BC (before children) I was a scientist who did bench research. I am a Christian who came to faith under protest through studying the historic circumstances surrounding the death of Jesus. I've written one novel, A Lever Long Enough, that I'm honored to say has won two awards. I also have written a nonfiction book, The Story Template: Conquer Writer's Block Using the Universal Structure of Story. This book is a programmed learner-type book that helps you, the writer, develop a complete compelling story (novel or screenplay) from a vague idea.

EMail Hijacks

OK, this is about the 5th message I've gotten like this in two months, in which I'm told my yahoo email account will be closed if I don't verify something. Puhleeze.

Um, I don't think I'm going to bite. Notice:

1. return email is att, not yahoo.

2. poor punctuation and English phrasing.

3. I'm still trying to figure out how signed name "David McDowell" translates to email handle "jimkat218".

Sorry, I don't want my own emailing list hijacked for my friends to receive stupid (or worse) websites and desperate requests from me in Singapore asking to wire me money. I just get really irritated with this stuff.
