“Dreaming I Die” is LIVE!

I am thrilled to announce that the third and final installment in my Dreaming Trilogy, “Dreaming I Die,” is now live on Amazon.com in paperback or Kindle editions. Took me four years to write these three novels. I wrote them in such a way that they can all be read independently of one another, but they make the most sense when read in order. All three books now have slightly different covers that show off the cover paintings much better. #Fiction #HistoricalThrillers #LucidDreaming

The The Slow Mo Guys got a new toy – a probe lens:

“Summer Meadow” by Swedish artist Anna Billing (1849-1927).

Bird whisperer and animal rescuer A Chick Called Albert knew just what to do when a bird hit his window. “I ran outside, a young blackbird had just hit my window. I wasn’t sure if she was going to make it. Here’s what you should you do in case you find a bird like this.”

YouTuber and NASA scientist Mark Rober says, “Since I was a little kid I always wondered what it would be like to swim in a pool of Jello. Turns out it is really difficult. We heated up the Gelatin in 55 gallon drums and then used gravity to put that jello into the pool.”

I used to be a fairly advanced figure skater. There’s an unwritten rule on the ice: less-advanced skaters yield to more-advanced skaters. High-level skaters need more room and speed to practice, and you’d better get the hell out of their way if you know what’s good for you. The problem is, when you have half a dozen highly-advanced skaters who are all about the same level sharing the same ice, crashes happen, because none of these skaters are accustomed to yielding to anyone on their home ice. Here are three pretty spectacular crashes that have happened. The first two, the skaters were able to continue after recovering themselves. The third one, though, is pretty brutal – there’s blood and he needed help getting off the ice.
