Yet another update

Not much has been going on other than survival and carrying on. I’m still host or co-host of 3 podcasts, all on various aspects of Linux and open source software. I occasionally stick my head in an online music sharing session. I’m taking occasional jobs as a substitute teacher. And I’m trying to keep my marriage intact and the relationship improved. I’m reading on the phone to my old friend Rhonda Rodgers, now often bedridden in a facility in the Detroit area. I have been doing a lot of reading, lately becoming embedded in books by authors Lindsay Buroker and Charlie Holmberg. I haven’t written much else, other than the occasional parody song. I have never really recovered from my auto accident 2.5 years ago or the death of my mother 2 years ago, but I do the best I can. My kidneys are being rather resilient, refusing to fail entirely but still on a slightly downward trend.

Nobody calls me other than one cousin; nobody else keeps in touch other than another cousin. I’ve been trying to find better housing, preferably as buying a house, and been stymied and stonewalled. We are nearly out of debt, our greatest debt being the car my wife is driving. I have lots of online friends, which is in itself difficult as I refuse to use Facebook, Twitter, or most other popular platforms, but you can find me on MeWe, Mastodon, Discord, and Telegram.

I feel pretty isolated, which is never good for mental health, and have the occasional meltdown. If you want to help, the best way is to get in touch with me and stay in touch.

I’ve had a long life, some would say too long. I’ve had a lot of accomplishments, most of which will have long since been forgotten by most people. I still have a few things I’m doing, mostly in Linus. I still have the Bardic College but seem to be doing less than treading water in that area.

I hope everyone reading this is having the best life they can. I’d love to hear from you. is my email, I’m or on Mastodon.
