From the desk of Tiffiniy Cheng @ FightForTheFuture.org:
A big hurrah to you!!!!! We’ve won for now — SOPA and PIPA were dropped by Congress today — the votes we’ve been scrambling to mobilize against have been cancelled.
The largest online protest in history has fundamentally changed the game. You were heard.
On January 18th, 13 million of us took the time to tell Congress to protect free speech rights on the internet. Hundreds of millions, maybe a billion, people all around the world saw what we did on Wednesday. See the amazing numbers here and tell everyone what you did.
This was unprecedented. Your activism may have changed the way people fight for the public interest and basic … Click to Continue →
We have made some leaps on the new BibleCounts.com website. By tomorrow we will start placing the basic design of the core site. This includes the registration, user tracking. etc.
Over the next month we will start integrating the core BibleCounts quiz/testing and scoring systems as well as the point tracking system. The initial test design for ages 5-12 will be updated first. We have Mathew through Luke completed and will expand those quizzes as we get response from our users and testers.
So far, Preston, Debbie and I have created the entirety of the content. Mostly through our own family devotional time. We are doing this in our free time, as a family, so … Click to Continue →
These are topics for blog posts that I want to get into but I haven’t had the time for. Funny enough one of these is about MAKING TIME for things…

The most dangerous words in your walk. (with God and your family).
I have been neglecting my writing here for a few really bad reasons. The primary one is my mad obsession with tweeting. No really. I tweet for social reasons (of course) and for work. I am looking for work, promoting projects and even promoting sites or causes in which I believe. You can see most of my posts on this site, or via my Facebook or Linked-In pages. Yes, yes its true. I really do need the attention.
Lately, I have cut back on my writing. I am no longer writing the Travel Logs and I am not working at Big Green or the sticker company any longer. I am officially an out-of-work nerd and techno-weenie. Yet, I have been in need … Click to Continue →
I originally published this about a year ago. I wrote this for one angel in particular but then edited it for all of my angels that had shared their hearts with us that year. I will always have a special place for those angels. You will always be my family.
As a quick aside. I am getting married tomorrow. This is my second marriage but she was one of my first loves. It is interesting how our path always goes back to where we started.
I felt disconnected from my universe, and I finally discovered why. The angel I knew and wanted, was missing from my inner eye. I recognize, your divine beauty, both in form and sensuality. Click to Continue →
In the Margins: Coming from an engineering background and the realm of the technical writer, I have to continually practice the skills that make for a good entertainment author as opposed to the author of User Guides. I would like to share a few things I have learned. Today’s topic is…
Vocabulary – The words we use in daily language are not always the best choices for either the technical writing or the fiction labors. The technical genre requires straight-forward phrases and very specific verbiage. My favorite is the use of terms like stylus and gateway which evoke mental images of wands of arcane power and ancient portals. Phrases like ,”Press the rigid, alabaster, panel against the chiseled features of the once mighty and … Click to Continue →
