Construction Coming Soon to Griffie World

Griffie World, my main website will soon be under construction. I think I’m going to (finally) bite the bullet and upgrade it this weekend. So, if you stop by, please excuse the dust (isn’t there always dust with construction?), and the two by fours laying all over the place. I want to get it torn down and back up as quickly as possible, so hopefully the interruption will be minimal.

LA Times Book Festival ~ Day 1

The day was absolutely gorgeous. Sunlight streamed down from blue skies and the air remained cool from the breeze that blew through the campus. We could not have asked for better weather to join several thousand visitors and exhibitors on the UCLA campus today, to celebrate the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books. Denny and I arrived just shortly after … Read More

Book Festival Here I Come

I think I might actually be ready for the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books this coming weekend. I have received my order of books, have business cards, bookmarks, hand out cards, and posters. And I designed t-shirts for both Denny and I to wear at the event with the Misfit McCabe traveling book site (Where in the World is … Read More

Weekend Updates

The design of my blog has been updated. I have more closely integrated the traveling book site, Where in the World is Misfit McCabe?, and put the link in a tab at the top of the blog (WITW is MMC). I have added a nav tab at the top to Griffie World in preparation for the revamp of that website, … Read More

Let’s Read

I can’t believe that it’s almost over and I almost missed it! March 2nd is NEA (National Education Association) Read Across America day, which focuses on motivating children to read. The date for the celebration was chosen to coincide with the birthday of that childhood favorite Dr. Suess. (It’s ok, you can still like Dr. Suess as an adult. . … Read More

The Writing Super Puppy Bowl

Well, Super Bowl Sunday has come and gone once again. Two teams hit the field, and the battle wages for the next 3 hours or better, and at the end a team is named champion. What I didn’t understand is that although my plan didn’t actually involve watching the game this year, that I too would be waging a battle, … Read More

Snake Oil or Superfood, the Acai Berry revisited

We are always trying to find the quick fix to losing weight. I have been watching my web stats and noticed that my previous article on the Acai berry continues to be the most popular. I get information as to what search led the reader to my blog and there is a definite trend. The reason that article is so … Read More

Message from a Reader

It is so nice to get a message from a reader who enjoyed your writing, especially when you weren’t expecting it. As a writer, you spend so much time writing the book, and all of your tender care has gone into the writing itself, and then things like picking a cover and trying to drum up some attention for it. … Read More

WITW is MMC? – Woodinville, WA

I have fond memories of Woodinville. I was actually in Washington on business, I forget exactly what the purpose was, but I was visiting the office that my company had in Bothell before heading up to our Vancouver office. Since there was a weekend in between, I was able to attend the Annual Fool’s Day Parade, also known as the … Read More

2008 in Review

I’m not really a believer in resolutions.  The word resolution to me is like the phrase, “I’ll try.”  When someone says, “I’ll try,” what they really mean is “don’t hold your breath.”  It’s like a built in excuse for failure.  With “I’ll try”, if I succeed, then I’m the hero, if I fail, well, I never promised anything.  A resolution … Read More
