To The Start of a New Year at The Other Shoe

Daniel Hanning

                                                                              Daniel Hanning


Welcome back, My Dear Shoevians, to another year of; ‘Lost in Space’, ‘News from Around the World’, ‘The Mars Report’, and so much more! Just today I have renewed my hosting for this blog. Until this past week I had feared that I would be unable to continue this journey with you My Dear Shoevians.

.

This doubt had helped to silence my online voice, however now that I have met this challenge, and prevailed, I feel confident enough to write and publish again. I know that it will take time, to rebuild the, once huge, traffic to this blog. I know that and determine to meet this challenge head-on.

.

There will be many changes, over the coming months, to this blog. As I have aged, I have changed and so will this blog. I will be sharing more and more videos of game play from such venerable PC titles as; World of Warcraft, Rift, The Elder Scrolls Online, Diablo 3, and Star Wars the Old Republic. As well I will be following, very closely, the investigation into collusion by members of the Trump for President 2016 campaign and Russia. Just this week, The Other Shoe dropped proving that Donald Trump, Jr. willing took a meeting with members of Russian intelligence with the sole purpose of coordinating assistance from the Russian government.

.

Let me not get too far ahead of the game, and my publishing. It is good to be back. It is good to know that, for at least the next six months, this blog location is still mine! I will warn you, My Dear Shoevians, that at first… the articles will be few. I will not jump right back into publishing five to seven articles per week. However, I am committed to writing and publishing just as much and as often as my health and pain will allow.

.

I, genuinely, look forward to the coming months and our continuing journey here at The Other Shoe!

.

Take Care

&

Adieu!

My Dear Shoevians – PLEASE ASSIST ME – REDUX

                     Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. First, I would like to extend my heartfelt “THANKS!” to Jason Kleppinger for his donation of $25.00 to my ‘Computer Repair Fund’. This is my very first donation and I am hoping that, with the publication of this article, I might reach more of you, My Dear Shoevians, and convince you that my need is great and genuine. In this second article, regarding the death of my writing computer, I am including images of the; desktop, Device Manager, Device Tab and others as evidence that (in fact) my laptop (writing) computer is damaged and does need repair.

Since I first wrote of this problem I have been able to get two (over the phone) estimates for the cost of the repair. The estimates (so far) range from $225.00 to $460.00. Of course, I am going to take the computer to the repair company that offers to do the work for the lowest estimate. So far, that is $2250.00, but that is “sight unseen” and could go up (slightly) more if there is more wrong with the laptop. My Dear Shoevians, I have run several diagnostic programs on this laptop and have come to the conclusion that only one problem exists. The ‘Display Adapter’ is not working. I have: rebooted, removed the battery and let computer stand (without power) for two hours then rebooted, booted up without the ‘Repeater-Extension’ module connected, and ‘Uninstalled/Reinstalled’ the display adapter twice. All to no avail. The image below shows the ‘Device Manager’ with the error indicated with the ‘Display Adapter’.

In order to see the image better, just click on the image and it will take you to a full screen display of the image, this is true for all the image in this article and all images on my blog(s). You can clearly see the Yellow Triangle with the black apostrophe indicating that the problem device is the ‘Display Adapter’. This would be a very small problem with a desktop computer. Just as easy as buying a new (or used on eBay) Graphics card and installing said card into the computer. However, this is a laptop computer and that means that the ‘Display Adapter’ is built into the motherboard. That means, in order to fix the problem, the motherboard must be replaced.

.

The image, above, shows the ‘Display Adapter’ tab in the ‘Device Manager’ showing that there is a problem with that device and Windows has not/will not start the device until the problem is resolved. As I have indicated I have gone through any/all trouble shooting for this problem I could find; one the Windows web site, Tom’s Hardware web site, and the nVidia web site, too. I am very much certain that the replacement of the motherboard will resolve the problem I am having, and return to me my writing laptop computer.

My Dear Shoevians, I deeply apologize for this… intrusion into your life… asking for help/assistance is not something that I enjoy or relish. Matter of fact, it really rubs me the wrong way and I work very hard to avoid these situations. However, this has become an unavoidable reality in my life. Again, I deeply apologize for writing and asking for your financial assistance in this matter.

Again, ‘THANK YOU JASON!!!” for your generous contribution of $25.00. With ONLY F I V E more contributions of $50 or more I will have the funds I so desperately need to pay for this much needed repair. I have a real and deep bound with this machine. Over the past seven years I have written; over 650 articles, TWO questions USED BY Bob Schieffer on ‘Face the Nation’ (to question Sen. Mitch McConnell and Speaker Rep. John Boehner), 200+ pages of ‘The Horror in Smithville’, 100+ pages of ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia – The Healing Light’, newsletters, business cards, fliers and a brochure design (all for Hanning Web Wurx and The Other Shoe).

With your contribution(s) (via PayPal) just use enzomatrix@earthlink.net and Daniel Hanning. The repair company HB Computers will be the company making the repairs on my HP DV9500t CTO laptop computer. This laptop computer, when new, cost me $2,000.00 and it still works incredibly well (aside from the display adapter not working), and with this repair I am certain that it will serve me another five years and another 500+ articles plus two more books in the ‘The Horror in Smithville’ series and two more books in the ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ series.

.
My Dear Shoevians,
I do hope that you consider the information I have shared, look at the desktop and device manager images, and PLEASE consider assisting me in this venture of repairing my (desperately needed) writing computer. I have priced new laptop computers and found that a laptop (17.3′ screen, Geforce Video Card, three USB ports, extender port [an HP QuickDock 2.0 Docking Station – which I OWN] and a full sized keyboard with number keypad) would cost me between $2,000.00 and $3,000.00. This, investment, of $225 – $350 is a fraction of that amount and well spent.

.

Again, please go to PayPal to make your donation to Daniel Hanning enzomatrix@earthlink.net to help me get up and writing and publishing again… soon. Thank you for your time and effort… THANK YOU for your consideration and kindness… THANK YOU for EVERYTHING you do to HELP!

.

As always, if you ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ this article, via your social media outlets, it will greatly increase the chances I meet my goal and obtain my working writing laptop… Again!

.

P.S. Dear Family, Friends, Facebook Friends, and Followers of The Other Shoe​;
BELOW is a scan of the receipt for my $50 payment for Diagnosis &/or Deposit towards REPAIR of my ‘Writing Computer’ with HB Computers in Huntington Beach.
.
I am still quite berfet of the FUNDS I NEED to PAY for said repairs… … but I just HAD to FIND OUT; IF it can be repaired, HOW MUCH it would COST to Repair, and WHAT is WRONG with this (eight year old) writing computer. My Dearest Family, Friends and Followers… Over the past FIVE YEARS I have written and PUBLISHED more than 650 articles at my FOUR blog locations. ALL these articles (along with one NOVEL 75% DONE and ANOTHER Novel 25% DONE)… I REALLY DO N E E D this computer to write and publish. Without this machine… my voice WILL fall SILENT.
.
ANY amount of help WILL H E L P! I AM sorry to have to ask for help… I am just unable to work… and this month I am BACK to my Oncologist…
.
PLEASE take a moment… and PLEASE consider lending me a HAND?
.
Thank you,
Danny Hanning​

.

.

P.P.S – The Owner of H.B Computers told me he WILL “accept payments from ANYONE that calls and offers to HELP with the cost of  REPAIRS. He ACCEPTS ALL major credit cards and WILL apply ANY/ALL monies towards the REPAIR COST(S). If you want to HELP.. but not to send ME money? The Phone Number is right here.. Call and ASK FOR AMIR! Thank you!

July 2015 HOTTEST MONTH on RECORD – National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI)

Land Ocean Temperatures Percentiles Jan-July 2015

Land Ocean Temperatures Percentiles Jan-July 2015

“The combined average temperature over global land and ocean surfaces for July 2015 was the highest for July in the 136-year period of record, at 0.81°C (1.46°F) above the 20th century average of 15.8°C (60.4°F), surpassing the previous record set in 1998 by 0.08°C (0.14°F). As July is climatologically the warmest month of the year globally, this monthly global temperature of 16.61°C (61.86°F) was also the highest among all 1627 months in the record that began in January 1880. The July temperature is currently increasing at an average rate of 0.65°C (1.17°F) per century.Separately, the July average temperature across global land surfaces was 0.96°C (1.73°F) above the 20th century average, the sixth warmest for July on record. Large regions of Earth’s land surfaces were much warmer than average, according to the Land & Ocean Temperature Percentiles map above. The average temperature for Africa was the second highest for July on record, behind only 2002, with regional record warmth across much of eastern Africa into central areas of the continent. Record warmth was also observed across much of northern South America, parts of southern Europe and central Asia, and the far western United States. A large swath stretching from eastern Scandinavia into western Siberia was cooler than average, with part of western Russia much cooler than average. Cooler than average temperatures were also observed across parts of eastern and southern Asia and scattered areas in central and northern North America.”

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other ShoeJuly 2015 was the HOTTEST MONTH on record! America started keeping temperature records in January 1880. This past July was the hottest month in 135 years of record keeping. I am not going to talk, much, in this article. I am going to quote what I have read, and share the images that sparked my grave concern. However, My Dear Shoevians, do not mistake my lack of personal narrative of a lack of personal interest. Quite the contrary, I am very concerned by what I have read… and, more over, the lack  of coverage by our major media outlets and networks. This IS news! 

[FYI ALL “Quotes” in this article come from one place HERE ]

.

 

.

    “Temperature anomalies and percentiles are shown on the gridded maps below. The anomaly map on the left is a product of a merged land surface temperature (Global Historical Climatology Network, GHCN) and sea surface temperature (ERSST.v4) anomaly analysis as described in Huang et al. (2015). Temperature anomalies for land and ocean are analyzed separately and then merged to form the global analysis. For more information, please visit NCDC’s Global Surface Temperature Anomalies page. The percentile map on the right provides additional information by placing the temperature anomaly observed for a specific place and time period into historical perspective, showing how the most current month, season or year compares with the past.”

.

(Land and Ocean Temperature Departure from Average July 2015)

 

 

.

Austria recorded its hottest July since national records began in 1767. The average temperature was 3.0°C (5.0°F) higher than the 1981–2010 average, beating the previous record of +2.7°C (+4.9°F) set just a few years earlier in 2006. Two major heatwaves, with temperatures reaching 38°C (100°F), contributed to this heat record. At some stations in major cities, including Innsbruck University, Linz, and Klagenfurt, it was not only the hottest July, but the hottest month ever recorded in the 249-year period of record. On July 7th, the daily temperature reached 38.2°C (100.8°F) in Innsbruck, its highest temperature in recorded history.”

.

 

(Blended Land and Sea Surface Temperature Percentiles July 2015)

.

“The heat waves extended to France, where the country had its third warmest July in its 116-year period of record. Overall, the temperature was 2.1°C (3.8°F) higher than the 1981–2010 average, with localized departures of more than 4°C (7°F) in the Massif Central to the North East and the Alps, according to MeteoFrance.”

.

 

                   (January–July 2015 Blended Land and Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies in degrees Celsius)

.

  • The Netherlands also experienced abnormally hot July temperatures at the beginning of the month. Under an intense heat wave that gripped much of western and central Europe, the southeastern town of Maastricht observed a temperature of 38.2°C (100.8°F) on July 2nd the highest temperature on record for that town and one of the highest for the country. The highest temperature ever recorded was 38.6°C (101.5°F) in Warnsveld in 1944. The heat did not last however. The temperature was below 0°C (32°F) at a station in Twente in the eastern part of the country on July 9th and 10th, the first time the temperature dropped below freezing in July since 1984.”

.

 

(500 Millibar Heights and Anomalies in meters)

.

  • “Record-breaking heat was observed in parts of the southern United Kingdom at the beginning of July, including the highest temperature recorded in the country since August 2003. However, the heat did not last as westerly Atlantic air flowed in, bringing cooler-than-average temperatures for much of the remainder of the month. So, despite the early record heat, overall, the average July temperature for the UK was 0.7°C (1.1°F) lower than the 1981–2010 average.”

.

(Land-Only Percent of Normal Precipitation July 2015)

.

“A high pressure dome over the Middle East brought what may be one of the most extreme heat indices ever recorded in the world on July 31st. According to media reports, in the city of Bandar Mahshahr, the air temperature of 46°C (115°F) combined with a dew point of 32°C (90°F) for a heat index on 74°C (165°F). The highest known heat index of 81°C (178°F) occurred in Dhahran, Saudi Arabia on July 8th, 2003.”

.

 

(Land-Only Precipitation Percentiles July 2015)

.

“For the oceans, the July global sea surface temperature was 0.75°C (1.35°F) above the 20th century average of 16.4°C (61.5°F), the highest departure not only for July, but for any month on record. The 10 highest monthly departures from average for the oceans have all occurred in the past 16 months (since April 2014).

Related to the current strong El Niño conditions, sea surface temperatures during July were near 1.0°C (1.8°F) above the 1981–2010 average in the central equatorial Pacific Ocean, and more than 2.0°C (3.6°F) above average across the eastern Pacific, according to analysis by the NOAA Climate Prediction Center. Record warmth is notable across much of this area, as shown by the July Temperature Percentiles map above. The CPC estimates there is a greater than 90% chance that El Niño will continue through the Northern Hemisphere winter 2015/16, and around an 85% chance it will last into early spring 2016. This forecast focuses on the ocean surface temperatures between 5°N and 5°S latitude and 170°W to 120°W longitude, called the Niño 3.4 region.”

.

My Dear Shoevians, warmer Pacific/Indian Ocean temperatures usually spell out an El Niño conditions for Southern California. It is now August 24th and there has been negligible rain fall for the Southern Californian basin. NO El Niño has developed, no increased rains (and we really do need those rains) only increased temperatures. This is a terrible situation for the western states, and for much of the food supply that comes from California!

.

This is not the article I wanted to write and publish, today. I have a really beautiful article of images from the Chandra X-Ray Telescope that will take your breath away… but this is so much more important! No longer can any American reasonably; deny, refute, or otherwise pretend that Global WARMING is not REAL! Here he have a historic record broken right here in July of 2015. America needs to join with all the world powers and address and fight Global Warming… before it is too late for our grandchildren and great-grandchildren. That is a FACT! 

.

As always, than you for dropping by. If you have enjoyed this article, please ‘Like’ and‘Share’ via all your social media with all your; family, friends, co-workers and acquaintances.

Thank you!

The Rebirth and Re-Launch of The Other Shoe

Author/Editor Danny Hanning in Rolling Hills Estates February 2015

Author/Editor Danny Hanning in Rolling Hills Estates February 2015

.

                     Welcome back My Dear Readers Shoevians to The Other Shoe. This article is my first written work in, well, many months. The world just keeps moving, as it did during my hiatus. Just recently I lost my best friend and constant companion, Alexander R. Hanning. His passing shook me to my very core and left me reeling for days. Alexander had a stroke March 27th, 2015. For the next two weeks I kept him at my side, cared for his every need and fed him Ensure and baby food.

.

He really wanted to hang in there, to stay at his Daddy Daniel’s side, for as long as possible. I will talk more about Alexander, his life’s work, and his end struggle later this week in my homage. This coming Sunday I hope to publish a final ‘Sunday Funnies – Homage to Alexander R. Hanning’. I will share his final videos, which remain unpublished, his final images and the time we spent together prior to his passing. Alexander was; a source of strength, a genuine friend, an inspiration and my muse for many works. His role in my upcoming works ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ will be greatly expanded due to his larger-than-life role in my real life.

.

After much soul searching and discussions with Allen, I have brought my battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma to an end. I have put my oncologist on the backburner and scheduled my next office visit for October. For all of you, My Dearest Shoevians, which have not faced cancer, the battle takes everything out of your life. We lost thousands of dollars of potential income, right at our birthdays, our 27th anniversary, and the Holiday season. Time, events, and treasure I will never regain, and is sorely lost.

.

Writing this, just now, I am seeing (for the first time) my level of personal loss. Oh, don’t get me wrong… I have known my loss. My lost income, my lost time and my loss of life and love. It is just, well… writing about it here, today, brings me face-to-face with my losses. Today, I end one of these losses by returning to writing and publishing here at The Other Shoe.

.

Now, My Dearest Shoevians, I am going to be completely honest upfront. I will not be capable of producing the amount of content, articles, here at the beginning. First, I am going to undertake a search for a new ‘look’ for the blog. The site at Word Press will remain the same for the time being. So, this change will just take place at the Blog.com location. I am looking to rekindle the Shoevians that were/are my regular readers. However, I am looking to expand my readership with any/all means possible. What you can look forward to?

.

You can look forward to; ‘The Mars Report’, ‘Lost in Space’, Sunday Funnies’ (changed due to the loss of Alexander R. Hanning), A Week in Review’ and “News From around the World’. I have several new article series that I plan on rolling out, over the next several weeks. Of course politics and the upcoming Presidential election will be featured over the coming months. For those that think they ‘know’ who I will write in favor and who I will choose to trash? “You don’t know!”

.

This is a very important election for many reasons. The most important for our nation is Income Inequality! The candidate that (honestly) champions genuine income redistribution (as suggested by Pope Francis) will curry my favor. We, Americans/America, are deeply entrenched in an “economy of exclusion”[1]. Pope Francis, recently, m et with executives from United Nations Agencies, Funds and Programmes. Here is an excerpt from their discussions:

.

“Future Sustainable Development Goals must therefore be formulated and carried out with generosity and courage, so that they can have a real impact on the structural causes of poverty and hunger, attain more substantial results in protecting the environment, ensure dignified and productive labor for all, and provide appropriate protection for the family, which is an essential element in sustainable human and social development. Specifically, this involves challenging all forms of injustice and resisting the “economy of exclusion”, the “throwaway culture” and the “culture of death” which nowadays sadly risk becoming passively accepted.”[2]

.

I strongly feel that, regardless of your political leaning, income inequalitypovertyrampant hunger among CHILDREN in America… and the repeated financial attacks (by Congressional Republicans) on; Food Stamps, Social Security Benefits, Social Security Disability Benefits, Veterans Benefits, Homeless Veterans Benefits, and like programs. America must belly-up to the table and honestly discuss the obvious attack(s) on the; poor, seniors, and the disabled.

.

So, My Dear Shoevians, I am publishing this article today (April 13, 2015) as a precursor to the rebirth and Re-Launch of The Other Shoe! I will not shy away form the issues of our time. I will not pull any punches, and I will do my level best to DOCUMENT every fact and factoid I will share over the months and years to come. As always, I put honesty above popularity and the credibility of my blog above traffic reports.

.

So, if you are just looking for some one0sided political fodder for your Facebook postings? The Other Shoe is not your place to read. However, if you have grown tired of obvious fodder and pandering. If you are not just another rhetoric parrot then, maybe… just maybe The Other Shoe is the place for you.

.

I look forward to seeing you all here as I work (hard) to return The Other Shoe to its former glory, and traffic. I just know that these ‘times’ will give me fodder. I am just hoping that my health, my strength and my resolve can match the intensity of these times.

.

Thank you!

.

Adieu!

A Week in Review – September 27th 2014

Danny PET OCM 9-3-14 5

.

Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. If its Saturday? Then it is time for ‘A Week in Review’! That’s right My Dear and Devout Readers, the weekend has come the workweek in done. For many of you, My Dear Readers, the work week is just too busy to take time to read for pleasure. That is why I have created and now published for three years this article series. Each and every Saturday I post a review of all the articles published during the previous week.

.

I link to the article, a short excerpt from the article itself and, finally, I write a little something about the article I have linked. Bingo! How all of you, My Dear Readers, can catch-up on a whole week’s writing and publication in one place. Now, for this week, I (working, as always, completely ALONE) have managed to write and publish a record TEN ARTICLES! My Dear Readers, I simply am without the ability, to put into words, the overwhelming pride I feel. Pride that, in spite of pain and roaring depression, I have pushed myself as hard as I can to write and publish. Publish a record amount of good works to help further my cancer treatment funding campaign. I just feel, in my heart and soul, that if I can write and publish more and more “Good works’ that maybe… just MAYBE you, My Dearest Readers, will see my efforts… appreciate my work and reward my efforts by pledging your support to my battle against cancer!

.

As well, each and every article is an opportunity to drawn in more ‘new readers’, new followers and new faces that just might see donating to my Indiegogo campaign as an investment. An earned investment in a talented man who, obviously, works diligently to bring; entertainment, information, laughs and suspense to these pages and your lives. I work hard band I work long hours as a way to pay honor to the support and donations already received, and as an offering to anyone that will give in the near future. ‘Near Future’ is right there are only FIVE DAYS LEFT! I am running out of time fast! Time to convince the people I love to reach out and challenge the nay Sayers by donating to a fund to help me BATTLE CANER!

.

So, with each word written, each paragraph finished and every article published I am contributing and investing in our relationship… our friendship! I just hope that I convince enough of you, My Dearest Readers, to garner sufficient funds to win this battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma!

.

Well, it is 11:00PM on Friday night, so if I am going to get any sleep tonight, I simply must get moving on this weekly review! So, without further adieu I give you ‘A Week in Review’ here at ‘The Other Shoe’!

.

  • My Two Cents – September 22nd, 2014 : “In closing, again, I never wanted to run a campaign this year. My Dear Readers I wanted 2014 to be a year where I wrote, published, and entertained without asking anything, one red cent, from you or anyone else. But as they say ‘the best laid plans of mice and men…’. I come to you, in these closing hours of my campaign, to ask, to implore, to convince, to beseech you My Dearest Readers, to reach out and help lift me so that I might stand in battle and win this war on my cancer.” It as Monday, just five short days ago, and I was already feeling the heat of failure. At this point I had raised just $150, and the shortness of support smarted! I knew not where support would come, I knew not if I would ever garner the support necessary for me to wage a successful battle with my Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma cancer! I had been… told/whispered/hinted at that ‘somebody’ was working to undermine my best efforts. That ‘someone’ was under the (MISTAKEN) impression that if I was deprived of support that (somehow) I would ‘sprout a new spine, new nerve roots, a new leg and be FREE of CANCER’ and “be forced to return to work”. I can only imagine that this person’ was totally bereft of medical knowledge, had not been around these past ten years, failed to understand the medical reality that damaged nerve fiber NEVER HEALS! That is why paraplegics NEVER get up out of their wheelchairs and power chairs and DANCE! (Except, of course, in ‘Tent Revivals’) The only way one might imagine that depriving a human being of much needed support to BATTLE CANER, is if their minds were so clouded by anger and hatred that reason had long ago left them. I was so deeply HURT, by the telling, that I had to explain to the person who told me this, that I was not “upset at them… I am upset by the actions which you tell me about”. My Dear Readers, please do tell me just WHAT KIND of person would run around sewing seeds of distrust based in falsehoods and deceit? What kind of a human being, a Christian, would seek to undermine the efforts of a disabled person to gather funds need to (now) BATTLE CANCER!?! My Oncologist, upon meeting me and hearing the story of my head injury… my further disability… my loss of mobility and NOW my CANER! He marveled at my enthusiasm, my ‘Good Attitude’ and my perseverance in the face of YET ANOTHER personal medical BATTLE! He openly admitted that he did not think he could manage to go through what I have, “and keep the same positive and enthusiastic attitude”! However, I have read that some ‘kinds’ of people ONLY have or keep sick/disabled people as ‘friends’ just so they can ‘Watch them loose their battles with disability or disease”! There are some really sick people out there… really!
  • A ‘Shout-Out’ to ‘The Solitary-One’ : “Sherri Mikeska aka‘The-Solitary-One’ I would like to “Thank YOU!” for; your donation, your time, your kindness, your generosity… AND for picking the “Multi-SOCIAL-Media ‘Shout-Out’!” as it was the ‘Perk’ that I created all by myself! I have been waiting for someone to pick this ‘Perk’ so I could do this… procedure. I really hope that you Sherri Mikeska ‘The-Solitary-One’ sees ALL of these ‘Shout-Outs’! Now, I did see the ‘RL’ name of the person that made the donation. Well, the first name. However, since I DID NOT receive; an email, an Indiegogo PM, or any correspondence giving me permission to use the contributors Real Life name? I DID NOT reveal even the first name that I have record.” The very FIRST of its kind, but hopefully not the last! This is part of the (personal brainchild of ME) ‘Multi-Social-Media SHOUT-OUT!” as a ‘PERK’ for ANY donation of $40 or more! There are STILL 13 (Thirteen) of these ‘Social Media Wonders’ left!

There are a great many events transpiring, here on Earth in regards to Mars, and in the Martian orbit. The Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter (MRO) is about to have some company in the Martian orbit. The MAVEN (Mars Atmosphere and Volatile Evolution) spacecraft achieved Martian orbit roughly twenty hours ago, late Sunday night. The most tremendous thing about MAVEN is that this spacecraft will help mankind discover just what happened to the, once thick, atmosphere of Mars.” Determined to keep up the ‘regular’ publishing schedule, regardless of the; pain, confusion, depression and everything else. I put my nose to the grindstone, my mind into ‘Creative’ mode, took an extra pain medication and plunged, head first, into he awe and wonder that IS Curiosity’s adventure on the Martian Surface! This week was no different. I managed to find more than a half-dozen images to share, some really great narrative, and even shared some science! I am always happy to share the science and images that come from the rovers on the Martian Surface. My Dear Readers, I have been focused like a laser beam, devoted to my work, and hopeful that my HARD WORK and DILLIGENCE would be rewarded with YOUR DONATIONS! I hope, and pray, that I am right!

  • Lost in Space – Tour of Our Solar System ‘Review’: “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Welcome to a review edition of ‘Lost In Space’. Last week we completed the series ‘Tour of Our Solar System’ with the publication of Jupiter. Today I am going to share a look back over all of the editions of ‘Lost in Space’ that made up the series ‘Tour of Our Solar System’. From looking at the ‘Likes’ and the traffic reports it is easy to see that this sub-series within ‘Lost in Space’ was a huge success.” As PRMISED (in Last week’s edition) and ON SCHEDULE I wrote and published this ‘Review’ of ALL the edidtions of ‘Lost in Space’ that made up the ‘Tour of Our Solar System’! I am so very happy that, at this point in the week, I am STILL staying on schedule, publishing FINE WORK, and not ‘skimping’ of taking shortcuts! Regardless of my pain (both physical and EMOTIONAL) so SOUJURN forward. I just Keep Moving Forward. Placing FATIH in you, My Dearest Readers, my family, and my very good old friends from Houston and Pearland! I just know that if I can manage to KEEP writing and publishing that my hard work and efforts WILL be REWARDED!
  • Notes From Behind the Keyboard – September 25th, 2014: “THAT, My Dear Readers, brings us to the end of this article, for today. I hope that I have opened some eyes, and shared some insight. It is always my intent to share, and inform. Never to judge or inflame. My words are just that, MY words. Nothing more, and certainly nothing less. I look forward to seeing you here, later today, and again tomorrow. On FRIDAY there WILL be an episode of ‘The Horror in Smithville’!” And into every life a little rain must fall. Yes, it is Wednesday and (when I wrote this article) my doubt had found its way into my heart and mind following my pain. Funny how pain is almost always accompanied by doubt. That being in pain, makes a person more susceptible to doubt. Even myself, I have found that there is doubt, along with some fear… and some genuine… confusion. I FEAR that I will be too short of funds, have to forgo chemotherapy… and fear that my cancer will overcome me… and take me from you, My Dear Readers. I am also confounded by the deafening silence coming from people I have known since I was a pre-teen and a teenager. One would think, since you are STILL in contact with them, they DO know of your malady… well, a friendship that spans FOUR DECADES? Should be a friendship that bears fruit in a time of need. Support, when one stands to face cancer and death, alone.
  • News From Around the World – September 25th 2014 : “Well now, My Dear Readers, that brings us to the end of this revival of ‘News From around the World’ here at The Other Shoe. As most of you are aware, I am running a running campaign at Indiegogo to help me with the mounting costs of battling my cancer. Danny’s Cancer Treatment Fund at Indiegogo is now in its FINAL WEEK! That’s right only seven more days for me to raise as much money as I can! I hate to be so brutally honest, but I am a ‘man on a mission’. A mission to raise money to help me with; transportation costs, pharmacy costs, treatment costs, and home care costs.” This article series has been absent for nearly TWO months. However, I brought this one out of mothballs JUST FOR YOU My Dearest Readers! I am working so hard, spending hour upon hour everyday behind the keyboard and on the net. Doing everything I CAN to curry favor and EARN/WIN YOUR SUPPORT! I JUST KNOW that IF I can manage to FINISH OUT THIS WEEK… PUBLISHING ALL THE REGUALR ARTICLES PLUS MORE!!! That I WILL see MANY ‘Good’ DONATIONS!! CORRECT!
  • The Horror in Smithville – Part – 14 – B – 3 : “Betty Sue and Truman are leaning up against the door, when they hear Barry form inside the inner office. They hear him screaming! They had smelled cigarette smoke, again, a few moments earlier. Then it got really quite. Now… Barry was screaming AGAIN! This time is was so loud that it forced Truman and Betty Sue away from the door to the inner office. They heard Barry’s screaming twice, then they could have sworn they heard… Barry begging for his life! Truman got right up against the door, again, and put his ear hard up against the door. He could barely make out Barry saying “PLEASE just STOP right NOW!”” AS PROMISED!!! This week, we return to Barry Gartuske, Truman Dunahoo, and Betty Sue. We have Deputy Darryl on his way to “apprehend the MURDERER”… (Is Timmy DEAD?) AND we have the REAPPREAENCE of ‘The Tall Man’ in all his gory… or is that ‘glory’… Anyway, it is a GREAT episode and REAL ‘MUST READ’ for any of My Dear Readers that enjoy suspense novels or horror! And who DOESN’T at THIS time of year, right? I am HOPING BEYOND HOPE that I WILL have this story FINISHED just in time for HALLOWEEN!!! Now, My Dear Readers, I just CANNOT think of a BETTER motivator… to get me TO finish this horror novel IN TIME for HALLOWEEN than to have a GREAT Ending to my CAMPAIGN! The more money I garner? The BETTER the CHANCES are for me to FINISH! Simple!
  • INTERNATIONAL Traffic August – September 2014 : “Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Now, My Dear Readers, I have always wrote and published for the largest possible audience. Seems to me that the greatest accomplishment for a writer, of any kind, is to have their work read by the largest possible audience. Sure, Domestic audiences are great, it is gratifying to have the people you grew up with read and like your work. Although, the greatest test of a writer’s chops (it would seem to me… as logical) would be so demonstrate that one’s work has international appeal. If you, My Dear readers, have been a long-time reader of this blog, what I am about to publish will be rather familiar.” Well, My Dearest readers, I was looking over the traffic reports for the past month. Nothing out of the ordinary… except there is a LOT MORE traffic at the secondary location that EVERY before (that is over at Word Press). Then, I noticed something ELSE. I was looking at the SOURCE of this great influx of traffic. Low and behold, I find the source… and it knocks my socks off! The ‘source’ of the great increase in traffic? INTERNATIONAL READERS! That’s right, over the past several months, the better part of this year, my Internationla readership has been on a gradual increase! For the purposes of this article I have limited the graphics to the increase in just the last thirty days. But, just at the ‘secondary’ location? There are more than THIRTY nations where I have readers! Still the majority of my traffic is in the ‘GoodOl’USA!’ but now I have ‘regular’ readers in; England, Germany, Spain, France, Greece, Italy, Australia, New Zealand, and India just to name a handful! In the article (linked above) you can see all the nations listed with the number of readers by the name of the country. I am just FALBERGASTED! The NUMBERS are just MINDNUMBING! Over all, between the TWO locations? In just ONE DAY I now have OVER ONE HUNDRED SEPARATE VISITORS! Even BETTER it shows that TWICE A WEEK I have 100+ days! This is better than ever before! Between the increasing international traffic and the several 100+ visitor days my blog(s) have gained a popularity… my WORK my WRITING has gained a level of popularity that I had not even noticed, and am just HUMBLED by!

.

So, My Dear Readers, that brings us to the end of this weeks’ edition of ‘A Week in Review’ here at ‘The Other Shoe’. If you have read this entire article, then I think that you, My Dear Readers, now understand why I have managed to keep in a ‘Good Mood’ regardless of the dismal sate of my campaign. I can take heart in the fact that my writing and my work is gaining an international audience! That, overall, my traffic is on the up-swing, and that more and more people, every day, are learning just what a joy it can be to read something written by Danny Hanning!

.

YES! I really do need for donations to increase… either in frequency or size… or BOTH! I simply will not be able to afford to restart my treatments and care with the $280 I have raised. However, I will Make A PROMISE right here, right now’! That if (somehow) I manage to break $1,000.00 before the end of the campaign that I “will restart and STAY WITH my chemotherapy/radiation therapy. PERIOD! I do NOT want to shorten my life by refusing these treatments, However, I will NOT allow myself to be without enough money to pay the rent just so I can afford; transportation, food, a caregiver, and medications. PERIOD!

.

So, there it is My Dear Readers, a FULL and complete week of writing and publishing. JUST AS I PROMSIED! Now, I have done MY PART. It is TIME for you, My Dear Readers, to do your PART! I have sojourned on through pain, doubt and fear these past four weeks. I have done so without ‘seeing’ the financial… or friendship support that I need to battle and beat cancer. Regardless, I have managed to write and publish TEN ‘Good’ articles for your reading pleasure. Now, won’t you PLEASE click on the link below… and make my life BETTER and SAFER by pledging YOUR support?

Adieu!

Sunday Funnies March 23rd, 2014

            Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. If it is Sunday then it is time for ‘Sunday Funnies’ here at The Other Shoe! This week I have a short of Alexander looking for some food! We last purchased some food, for Alex, at Christmas. These bags generally last about three months.

.

That means that Alex is down to the dregs of his food supply. Long gone are the crunchy corn meal squares he so enjoys. He is out of hazelnuts and down to peanuts and the little tiny bits of food left at the bottom of the bag. Unfortunately, for Alexander, Allen and I are quite bereft of funds to purchase a new bag of ‘Macaw Parrot Food –  Kaytee’.

.

Yes, fancy rats do not like that darn simple rat food they sell in pet stores. When you buy a fancy rat they have dined, most of their lives, on a kind of maple bar. It is brownish, a square or rectangle and hard and solid. If you think it looks unappetizing, that is because it IS! It has taken me years of experimentation, and much wasted money on food they refused to eat, to discover what they do like.

.

Now, you must remove the red peppers! These peppers are put into the food for parrots, to aid in digestion. However, in rats they can cause severe bleeding! They have an anticoagulant effect in rats, leaving them bleeding from their eyes, ears and mouth. You simply must check the entire package prior to feeding your rat.

.

Now, on with the show! Today we have Alexander R Hanning searching for any tidbits of his favorite foods, left in the package.

.

ENJOY!

.

California Gets Relief From Drought

               Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. I just had to come out of my rest and recovery for this announcement. Today, early this morning, it started raining here in Orange County! Here is the forecast from NOAA (National Oceanographic Atmospheric Administration):

.

          “FOR EXTREME SOUTHWESTERN CALIFORNIA INCLUDING ORANGE...
SAN DIEGO...WESTERN RIVERSIDE AND SOUTHWESTERN SAN BERNARDINO
COUNTIES...
 
WATER VAPOR IMAGERY SHOWS A BEAUTIFUL AND INTENSE PACIFIC STORM
SYSTEM APPROACHING THE CALIFORNIA COAST THIS MORNING...NEAR 35.8
NORTH AND 131.26 WEST.  THE BLENDED PRECIPITABLE WATER IMAGERY FROM
1545Z SHOWS VALUES OF 1.2 INCHES OVER SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA...WHICH IS
DOWN SLIGHTLY FROM THE 12Z KNKX SOUNDING VALUE OF 1.25 INCHES.  THE
VAD WIND PROFILE FROM KSOX SHOWS 50 KTS WINDS AT 4000 FEET...WITH
THE VAD WIND PROFILE FROM KNKX SHOWING 35 KTS OF WIND AT 2000 FEET.
THESE WINDS WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE TODAY...ENHANCING THE
OROGRAPHIC PRECIPITATION ACROSS THE SOUTHERN COASTAL MOUNTAIN SLOPES
TODAY.  AT THIS TIME...THE COMPOSITE RADAR IMAGERY SHOWS WIDESPREAD
LIGHT TO MODERATE RAIN ACROSS THE REGION.  HOWEVER...A BAND OF MUCH
STRONGER SHOWERS IS NOW MOVING ONSHORE ACROSS ORANGE COUNTY...WITH
EMBEDDED THUNDERSTORMS POSSIBLE.  THIS BAND IS EXTENDING FROM THE
SAN DIMAS AREA SOUTH TO CHINO HILLS...YORBA LINDA...TUSTIN...AND
IRVINE TO LAGUNA BEACH.  STRONG AND GUSTY WINDS AS WELL AS HEAVY
RAIN AND LOCALIZED STREET FLOODING WILL BE LIKELY WITH THIS LINE OF
SHOWERS...WITH PEAK GUSTS OF 35 TO 40 MPH ALREADY REPORTED WITH THIS
LINE.  MEANWHILE...SNOW LEVELS THIS MORNING HAVE INCREASED TO AROUND
9000 FEET...WITH SNOW ONLY POSSIBLE ABOVE THE HIGHEST PEAKS.
HOWEVER...SNOW LEVELS WILL SLOWLY LOWER TODAY BEHIND THE COLD
FRONT...TO AROUND 6500 LATE THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.
 
NEEDLESS TO SAY...IT WILL BE A WET AND SOGGY DAY TODAY...WITH STRONG
AND GUSTY WINDS POSSIBLE.  OUR LOCAL WRF SHOWS 850 MB WINDS RANGING
BETWEEN 40 AND 55 KTS THROUGH THIS EVENING...WITH THE HIGHEST GUSTS
ALONG THE COAST AND IN THE VALLEYS RANGING BETWEEN 40 AND 50
MPH...WHILE GUSTS IN THE MOUNTAINS AND DESERTS COULD EASILY SEE
GUSTS RANGING BETWEEN 65 AND 80 MPH.  THE THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS
WILL INCREASE THROUGH THE DAY...AS THE LAPSE RATES BEGIN TO
STEEPEN.  THESE THUNDERSTORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING HEAVY
RAIN AND URBAN FLOODING AS WELL AS FLASH FLOODING.  THESE
THUNDERSTORMS WILL ALSO BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING DAMAGING STRAIGHT
LINE WINDS AS WELL AS ISOLATED WATER SPOUTS OR TORNADOES.
 
ANOTHER DISTURBANCE WILL MOVE ACROSS SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA ON
SATURDAY.  THEREFORE...THE SHOWERS AND THREAT OF THUNDERSTORMS WILL
CONTINUE INTO SATURDAY...BUT WILL LIKELY BE MORE SHOWERY IN NATURE.
THESE SHOWERS WILL CONTINUE TO BE MODERATE IN NATURE...WITH PERIODS
OF HEAVY RAIN POSSIBLE.  FLASH FLOODING WILL ALSO CONTINUE TO BE
POSSIBLE.  THE WINDS WILL STILL BE STRONG...BUT NOT AS STRONG AS
TODAY.  SHOWERS WILL THEN GRADUALLY TAPER OFF ON SUNDAY...WITH DRY
AND WARMER CONDITIONS DEVELOPING FOR THE WEEKEND.”[1]
.
This is a much needed break from the persistent dome of high pressure that was parked over most of California for the past fourteen months. Whereas an inch of precipitation today, and another one or two tomorrow is not going to make much of a dent in our drought conditions, it felt good to wake up this morning to rain. .
When I finally got out of bed (yes, I slept in due to the rain) it was still raining, and a cloud of depression began to break in my head. Growing up in Southeast Texas (in the 60’s and 70’s) I grew very accustom to regular and drenching rain. When I go without rain for a long period of time, like 14 months, I get depressed. Yeah, funny that… the opposite of other people. Gloomy weather makes the average person depressed, it has the opposite effect on your truly.
.
So, it looks like I am going to have today and tomorrow with some rain and overcast conditions. That will, hopefully, bring out the writer in me.  Yes, I have been strangely absent for the past week. I know! The illness that I fell prey took a real and substantial toll on me. I have been resting and recuperating, and thinking of just how to proceed with my blog. 
.
Now, I do not want to change anything… except maybe give the blog a theme and a direction. I do not want to write politics 24/7. It is not in my nature to be political all the time, that and I fear it would act to separate me from many of my regular readers. A little politics, blended nicely and balanced is fine for everyone. That is my goal, when it comes to that venue. I very much enjoy writing about Mars. I have brought back The Mars Report (recently) and that has greatly increased readership. I do not intend to drop that particular series of articles. 
.
I ask for feedback… as I have many times before, and hope that you My Dear Readers tell me what you would like to read. I plan on bringing more of ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’… well, excerpts. You all know that I have every intention of turning that work into a published novel. So, I was thinking… over the past week… of a publication schedule. A rotation of article types. Here is what I was thinking;
 
.
·        Mondays – The Mars Report
·        Tuesdays – Political Faire
·        Wednesdays – The Adventures of Princess Nadia (or other young adult fiction/SciFi)
·        Thursdays – Horror (a little something new I have been working on)
·        Friday – Free writing. A continuation of politics or that week’s top article. 
·        Saturday – Science
·        Sunday – A Week In Review and Sunday Funnies
.

Mind you this is still in the formative stages… but I would like to go this direction with my blog. I am adding a little science to the mix… and some horror. I have written horror stories since I was about six or seven years old. As a young boy I enjoyed horror novels and horror stories (I had a collection of paperbacks, they were the ‘Playboy’ collections. Each paperback had a genre that it focused on. I enjoyed the horror stories that were published by Playboy). So, I have been writing some horror stories, mostly short stories, over the past three months. With the return of the rain… and generally gloomy weather, my mood for writing horror has returned. Nothing graphically violent, but there will be blood.

.

Well, the rain has stopped and so must I. The news? It looks like the ridge of high pressure has… relented, at least for the next couple of days. When I have more information I will publish. I do not want to say that the persistent ridge has broken, before I know that to be true. I am glad for the rain… in any amount for any length of time.

.

As always I am deeply honored that you come here and read my work.

.

Thank you!

My PRE-DAWN RAID!

My PRE-DAWN RAID!

.

                  Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Sorry for the startling article title, but it is the truth. Before dawn, today, my home was (I feel) illegally raided. Sunrise, today,  here in Orange County Southern California, was 6:454AM. Nearly a whole bloody HOUR before that my home was invaded but unidentified barbarians posing as officers. Now, let me set your minds to ease… a little. I have NOT committed any crimes. I am not in any legal trouble. Now, let me weave you a tale. A tale of my humiliating, and gravely upsetting, painful  awakening, this very morning.

.

At approximately 5:55 AM this morning I was awakened, out of a deep painless sleep, by the vigorous, extremely loud, hate filled banging on my front door. I nearly jumped out of my bed, and my skin to, at the sound of this noise. Quite honestly it sounded like someone had a small sledgehammer and was trying to knock down my front door. I jolted up in bed, horribly wrenching my neck and causing the first of what will be a series of hurtful and humiliating actions, and looked at the clock in front of my bed. It was 5:55 AM and just as I was fixing to ask Allen if he had heard the violent hammering on our front door, it happened again.

.

BAM, BAM, BAM, BAM, BA, BAMMM!

.

Six times! Someone took a very hard and very dense abject and beat it against my front door. Now, My Dear Readers, generally in America a police officer, engaging in something like this (like a raid of your home) you would hear them announce themselves outside the door. Something to the effect of;

.

            ”Open up, it’s the police!”

.

Nobody made any kind of announcement outside my front door. Just twice, within ten seconds of each other, rapid vigorous angry slamming on my front door! The sound of a ball peen hammer, being thrown through my front door. I was now as frightened as I have been since… as frightened as I have been when I had a gun held to me during a mugging in 1989. Again, I have not heard anyone make any kind of ’legal’ announcement of potential entry, outside our door. For all I knew Allen and I were under some kind of home invasion attack. I say to Allen;

.

            “Allen did you hear that?”

.

 Allen responds, with fear in his voce that is quite palatable;

.

            “Yes, Danny. What should I do? Should I answer it?”

.

I responded, with great caution in my voice:

.

            “Go to the door and look through the peep-hole. See if you can see who it is. But, don’t open it and keep the chain on the door.”

.

At this point I am looking around my bed for something with which to protect myself. Allen looks through the peephole and says:

.

                        “Oh my God… I think it is my probation officer!”

.

At five-fricking-fifty in the AM… pre-flipping DAWN?

.

So I say Allen;

.

            “Well, open the door… but keep the chain on. “

.

Allen opens the door. I hear mumbled voices… and Allen removes the chain and opens the door.

.

Now I want to make a couple of things perfectly crystal clear to you, My Dear Readers. Every single penny paid in; deposits, move-in costs, and rent since the very beginning of my our residency here has been paid, in full, by me alone on cashiers checks from my account at US Bank. Allen is just getting back on his feet after the unfortunate incident in August of this year. I don’t like to talk about this much… It really is nobody’s business but my own, and Allen… However, I believe it was in August. Allen completely broke with himself and, at 46 years of age, took a car not belonging to himself for a ‘joyride’. Allen is now on three years probation and a work/release program that he is mostly through with. Having said, my understanding of the law in the state of California… And every flipping state in the United States of America, clearly states that no law enforcement officer shall EVER enter into a home without properly identifying themselves.

.

Let me take up, where I left off. Allen opens the front door and immediately two people walked into my home at 5:57AM unannounced. With complete disregard for me, my concerns, my civil right’s these people barge into my home and immediately demand that my husband of 26 years sit on the floor, where he stands, behind the front door of his own home… on his hands. Now, there were two individuals (I will not call them police officers, I will not call them law enforcement officers, I will not call them anything more than animalistic bi-peds, at this point, because neither have identified themselves and neither have addressed me at this point). The female of these, as yet, unidentified individuals barks a couple of things at Alan that I cannot hear… then starts flashing her flashlight all over my personal possessions. I look over the Allen and the male (I will not call him a man because men behave with honor) is shining one of these huge baton shaped 6’D’ cell battery halogen flashlights right in Alan’s face for some unknown flipping reason (probably due to his floundering self-esteem and microscopic id). Then the female of these intruders is snooping around my DVDs and books, God knows why. When she stops, at the curtain that separates my living room from my kitchen/bathroom area…. Well, she gives me a dirty look, then reaches in her pocket and removes two bright blue latex surgical gloves.

.

At this point, My Dear Readers, neither of these offensive intruders has:

  1. showed me a badge
  2. identified themselves as law enforcement officers
  3. said “excuse me: for barging into my home unannounced prior to DAWN
  4. acknowledged my existence with anything more than a dirty look from the female of these offensive intruders

Now, My Dear Readers, I am being uncharacteristically silent. I am being uncharacteristically silent because I realize, at that moment, if I were to open my mouth? I would’ve completely verbally eviscerated both of these bullheaded barbarians. Now, I am not an attorney but I do know my rights under the United States Constitution. One of those rights is a ‘right of entry’ that clearly states that if you’re going to walk into a home I pay the rent for every single penny out of my bank account you have to. at some point. acknowledge my flipping existence and identify yourself. Second, if you’re going to don sterile gloves and start; rummaging through my garbage, plying my clothes, furling my hats in the floor, and taking a dive through my personal items? You’ve got to tell me who the flip you are and why the flip you are in my house BEFORE DAWN!

.

This female barbarian goes into my kitchen, without my permission. I hear her rummaging through my garbage can, I hear her going through my clothes in my closet, and I hear her opening cabinets in my bathroom. My rage, at this point, My Dear Readers, is rapidly coming to a boiling point. Just about when I’ve decided I can say something without calling them the pre-dawn barbarian invaders that they are? The male barbarian invader shines his darn high beam  halogen six ‘D’ cell flashlight in my face! Then has the cojones to say to me, while still shining an extremely bright flashlight in my eyes at 5 AM;

.

            “Why don’t you lean back…”

.

Not; why don’t you lean back sir? Not; why don’t you please lean back. Not, would you please Sir lean back. My Dear Readers, the only time in my life… right now… that I am not aware of the intractable pain I’m in? Is when I am asleep. Right now, with my condition as it is, I generally only get eight hours sleep once or twice a week. If I am awake, I am in pain. Having already been jolted out of my bed by barbarians beating violently on my front door in the predawn wee hours of the day? I am in severe pain. Every since that typewriter dropped on my head in 1987 I’ve had a sensitivity to light. It is quite common for people, with head injuries, to develop sensitivities to; light, sound, heat, any of your senses can become highly sensitive. So, on top of the severe burning pain that is in my neck from jumping jolted out of my bed by barbaric and animalistic pounding in my front door in the predawn hours this day… this male barbarian has just created a severe migraine by shining a flashlight directly into my eyes at 6:03AM in the predawn morning.

.

Now, to be perfectly clear, these are the very first words either one of these violent intruders has said to me since they forced their way into my home in the predawn hours of this day. My Dear Readers I was sitting in the most comfortable way possible, I could find, when I was barked the order, by an unidentified intruder, in the predawn hours of this day. I didn’t say anything. I was in complete and total shock. So I leaned back some but I didn’t care reach back and touch my pillow or a reach the… the… the… bed chair I have, to try and make myself comfortable I just lean back so that he would remove the the six cell halogen spotlight from my eyes. Thank God, he did.

.

It is about this time, My Dear Readers, that the female barbarian intruder egresses from my kitchen. Again, these into barbarian intruders have now been in my home over three minutes and niether one of them has taken the time to identify themselves, show me a badge, explain to me why they are here, or even show the this simplest the most basic human courtesies that each of us, as Americans, extend up homeless people sitting out front of the K-Mart panhandling!

.

Now the female barbarian intruder engages in some mumbled dialogue with my husband of 26 years. He agrees to whatever they say I can’t barely hear what they’re saying, even though they are still in my apartment, that I have paid every single cent of rent for since we moved in. After the mumbled conversation with Allen, the male barbarian intruder opens the door and both of these violent inconsiderate barbaric unidentified intruders leave my home. It is now 3:20 in the afternoon (of the same day) and I have not yet been able to; get back to sleep, rest, calm down, get rid of the migraine headache, or find relief from the terrific pain caused by being jolted out of my bed at 5:50 this morning.

.

My Dear Readers you are the first people I have spoken to about this humiliating and, I believe, illegal intrusion into my home. Right now I do not have ink cartridges in my printer… with enough ink for me to prepare any letters. However, as soon as I have enough money to buy the cartridges, I am, and once my printer has a cartridge I am writing letters to; the Governor of the state of California, the American Civil Liberties Union office in Orange County, and to the United States Department of Justice Civil Liberties division. Now, I’m not stupid, I am not a child, and I didn’t just fall off the turnip truck. I know that Allen committed a crime. I know that while he’s on probation he has been forced to suspend certain civil rights. However, I am not aware of any law, federal or state or local, that allows a police officer to waltz into my home at 5:50 in the morning after beating on my door with a baton sized 6 ‘D’ cell flashlight without identifying themselves or even acknowledging my existence other than bark an order at me.

.

I have never been so upset or humiliated in my entire life! I’m going to mail every one of the above named letters; certified, restricted delivery, and return receipt. That is not going to be cheap, My Dear Readers, but what happened in the predawn hours of this day (to me) is not going to go with out consequence. If anyone out there reading this article is or knows a civil rights attorney? I would very much appreciate them contacting me. If anyone out there reading this is a member of the fourth estate, and would like to make a larger audience aware of the jackboot tactics of these unidentified predawn barbaric invaders, please contact me. I am 56 years old and I have never broken a single law. I have never received so much as a speeding ticket in my entire life. And yet, somehow, these ‘individuals’ (with obvious floundering self-esteem and microscopic ids) feel empowered to; beat vigorously on my door in the predawn hours of this day, intrude into my home. then rummage through my belongings and garbage? ALL and not once identify themselves or acknowledge me as human being? As fellow American, and to do so unscathed? WELL, they have another thought coming.

.

My Dear Readers I literally thank God that I didn’t open my mouth this morning. In high school I was known as the ’Master of the Insult’ and God of the hand gesture’. I coined the Insult “ma formed abortion of a roach. I have no doubt, whatsoever, that if I had opened my mouth, this morning, and told these and unidentified barbarians exactly what I thought of their brown shirt-jacket boot tactics? I just might well be in jail right now. Further, as a very young boy my paternal grandfather would tell me stories of the horrific treatment his wife and her parents received, as Jewish Germans, by the Brown shirted Nazis in the early days of the Second World War. These stories frightened me, My Dear Readers.  I understood the severity of their actions, the deep racial hatred that motivated those barbarian’s actions. However, it was not until the predawn hours of this day that I, myself, personally understood the fear and humiliation my paternal great grandparents must have felt.

.

I have not written, this week, much… because… I’ve been in a lot of pain… And, rather deeply depressed. Allen and I have been together, this December 15th, since 1987. This year we will celebrate our 26th year of being partners, life mates, significant others. Until three years ago, for the first 23 years of our relationship, no matter who was or wasn’t working. No matter how much or how little money we were making. No matter the circumstances or where we lived. Every single year I managed to give Allen a Merry Christmas. I remember, back in 1996, we were on hard times. We both went to bed, on Christmas Eve, without a single present under the tree. Unbeknownst to Allen, however, I had gone out earlier that day. And, with money I saved and put together…  that he didn’t know about… I managed to buy a couple presents for each of us. During the night I got out of bed and stole downstairs to put the presents under the tree. The next morning, Christmas day, Alan woke up very depressed and sad. That was, however, until Allen came downstairs and saw that a little miracle had happened in the night. He came downstairs and saw, under the tree, a half dozen presents. He sat under the tree and began the cry. He didn’t know how I’d done it. He didn’t know where I got the money. But without him even knowing I managed to bring Christmas to our home. From that day until five years ago, when I became completely incapable of getting out and doing things on my own… all alone, during the holidays Allen always referred to me as Mr. Christmas.

.

This year I will be unable to pull a Christmas out of thin air for Allen. It is just not going to happen. I’ve done everything I can to try and bring a little extra money into our home so that, in spite of my disability… In spite of his arrest… In spite of it all I could show Allen just how much I love him…  and how much he means to me… by being for him… At least one more time, Mr. Christmas.

.

And now, on top of all of those feelings… Declining feelings of self-worth… Shame that I can’t do for a man who’s been at my side 26 years through thick and thin…  anything for Christmas. On top of that he (and I) have to be terrorized in our own home. In fact, My Dear Readers, what happened us today is very personal to me. And I will not rest until something is done about these two barbarians beating on my door before the sun rose and humiliating him in his own home… and treating me like a second-class citizen. I will write about this more right here and at my other blog. As soon as I get #60 HP Black and color printer cartridges I will be writing, and sending, certified letters to all the people I’ve named above and anyone else I can think of that might… That might even have slimmest chance, might be able to address what I feel are…  possibly illegal actions and definitely immoral ones.

.

As well as soon as I get these printer cartridges I’m sending a demand letter, as required by California law, to the man that stole $300 from me earlier this year. And maybe, just maybe, I will receive some modicum of justice before the New Year. I don’t know if I can get a court date between now on New Year’s Eve. But I do hope I can get that those printer cartridges so I can send a letter of demand and then file a civil lawsuit against a man who I trusted with a ‘Good Faith’  $300. $300 as a deposit on a room that I never ever moved into. That, quite honestly, he refused to let me move into because he realized I was gay. And that the man that has been in caregiver (who was gay, too) would be out in time to move in with me. And when he found that out he decided that he wasn’t about to let me move in… and also decided that because I was gay he could steal my money and I would never do anything about it. I am pretty good with words, My Dear Readers, if I haven’t already then I don’t know if I could possibly convey how deeply depressed I am. I apologize. I do I sincerely apologize for bringing this dark storm cloud into everybody else’s life during this beautiful time of year. It is the core reason I haven’t written much this week. Last week I managed to chase the clouds away enough to write seven articles. I was very proud of myself and was holding my depression at bay.

.

I’m going to keep trying to push these dark clouds away. I have promised you another in my series of articles about Massively multiplayer online role-playing games, ‘MMORPGs And YOU!’. This one about the very first of the genre I played AND my all time favorite ‘World of Warcraft’. I have all the screenshots taken, and most of them uploaded. I have five videos recorded, uploaded to YouTube and ready to be embedded in the article. I also have the first two pages of the article written. I promise, I’ll do my best to get that article to you and another article about another game, of that genre, that I’m collecting screenshots and videos for… and as soon as I can pull my head out of these clouds I will bring them to you. I promise.

.

. As always I am deeply honored that you come here and read my work.

Thank you!

The Process

 Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. Today I am conducting a bit of an experiment, as I am writing to you. As the name of this article indicates, The Process, today I’m showing you behind the curtain and a little bit of the process that takes place when I write an article. With the help of this software Dragon ‘Naturally Speaking’[1] speech to text software… I am right now dictating an article as I am making a video of the dictation. Later today… Much later tonight I will be posting this completed article along with this video.

My Dear Readers you are so very important to me. Today being Thanksgiving I wanted to give you something back for all the support all the kindness all the kind comments and everything that I get from you as My Dear Readers. The gift I have for you today is a little look behind the curtain at the magic that is me writing an article for you.

.

I have never done this, before. I am not sure how well it will work out! However, I am sitting here watching and it is keeping up although a little bit behind, with everything that I have said. The process, for me, My Dear Readers is … well… I always have ideas. I had a friend of mine, the other day… share with me…

.

“What do you do, when you don’t have any ideas?”

.

And I commented back

.

“Well that is never a problem with me… I just always seem to have a lot of ideas about what to write.”

.

Take ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia”. I already have two notebooks full of; plot ideas, plot twists, cliffhangers, character evolution, character dynamics, relationships. All that will, at one point or another, in time become a part of my five book series ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’.

.

For people that have not heard me talk about this before, and anyone that may be new to my blog? ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ is a tale of a group of genetically engineered rats called “D and A rats” . Most people will see it and hear it as DNA… but actually it is “D and A”. Darrell and Alice. (Yes, named after my brother Darrell)

.

The daughter of the original D&A rat, King Nakita, has a daughter named Princess Nadia. All of the rats, both D&A and Rattus Superiorous all live in a city called ‘Rattopia’. The rats are going to help mankind ‘catch-up’ in the evolutionary process. It is a very good series of novels. Which will start, being written, for very young adults… children, and will advance for middle school and then high school aged children. Right now I am going to stop the video and continue with writing ‘The Process’ the article. ]

.

But, I’d like to thank you again, everybody, for dropping in and taking a look. I hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I look forward to seeing you, again, soon.

.

Now that I have turned off the video I’m going to continue writing the article ‘The Process’. Now, I don’t really think that I have any different or patented way of writing. I would think that the only major difference between me, and any other author of the day, is that I dictate all my articles, first. This is because I have limited use of my left hand, due to the progression of my spinal stenosis. If anything I am just adding one more step to the process of writing and then publishing an article. Whereas most authors will just type out an article then publish. I use a dictation software which takes my spoken words and turns it into a typewritten document. Then I can, change the document; update the document, and then copy and paste document and my publication software all using the Dragon naturally speaking software.

I have to tell you, My Dear Readers that getting this software was truly a godsend. I have needed this software for more than a year. I have wanted this software for the past 8 to 10 months. It was only in August of this year that I was able to get the software. I, alone, was not able to afford the software. However, Allen contributed most of the money so that I could have this software I so desperately needed. I can’t even begin to tell you My Dear Readers just how much of a significant difference this software has made. And my ability to write for you. I have made leaps and bounds in writing ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ since I have the software.

I am, however, really wanting to get the upgraded Dragon speech software ‘Premium’. The upgraded version will allow me to not only write articles but to completely control my computer without any use of my hands. With the progression of my disease… that my doctors are telling me. The need for a software to control all of my computer functions is going to go beyond a desire and into a necessity… in the coming years. The really great part is? I can use this software and an older computer, connect it to my power chair and be able to control my power chairs movement and functions all with my voice. Now, My Dear Readers, this is not going to happen anytime soon. However, it is going to be something I need to do. It’s good that I’m getting to know this software so that in time I can use it the way I’m going to need to.

Now, back to the process. Unlike a lot of millennial’s, most likely, I still use notebooks, index cards, an index card box to make notes of; plot outlines, character development, and all things of that nature. Right now, today, I can tell you I have two composition notebooks, two index card collections, and a couple of packages of index cards all with all sorts of notes on; dialogue, locations, environments, and plot items. In time I will take all of these note cards and composition books and put them into my novel software.

Now that’s the other part of my process that might be a little bit different from everyone else’s. I use novel writing software called ‘Storybook’. So far, I have found this software to be in invaluable for a novice novel writer like myself. This software keeps track of; character locations, plot lines, through lines, locations of important items, and everything that we novice writers tend to trip up on. Now let me be honest… Completely honest with you, My Dear Readers. I have never completed a novel in my life. I have written, to date, over 310 articles for The Other Shoe. Prior to my blogs I have written short stories in high school, one act plays for college, and have written all sorts of political articles here and there all my life. Oh, and I forgot, for two years I wrote, edited, and published the newsletter for the apartment complex I managed here in Stanton California. While writing the newsletter I also wrote edited and maintained the website for the same apartment complex. I’m thinking of putting up a few scanned pages from the newsletter from Plazawoods apartments right here at The Other Shoe. I really am very proud of the newsletter I created for this apartment complex. I really haven’t mentioned it before… Haven’t talked about it much, because of one reason. After two years of; writing, copying, publishing, editing, and posting on every door of the building I managed for two years? I was never paid one cent, for all my work, by the owner of the building.

My Dear Readers I cannot even begin to put into words how much it hurt… How unappreciated I felt… How jaded it made me for that man to never pay me one cent for all the newsletters I wrote. Honestly, I think it’s why I stopped writing for many years. I cannot tell you how many of the residents complemented me on the newsletter that I wrote. In fact, I had one long-term resident who said they put the newsletter every month on the refrigerator in their apartment and that there are two very young kindergartens and elementary school age children would use my newsletter is practice reading out loud and for spelling. My Dear Readers as an author that’s the kind of thing I live for… I live to hear and know. Yes I used the newsletter as a device to let the tenants know it was the first of the month and the rent was due… without mentioning the rent or browbeating them that it was due. I used it as a tool to develop good habits and the part of my tenants to pay the rent on time. Because the owner of the building wanted to me to charge $75 a month if the rent was late. Like you, My Dear Readers, the residents of the building I managed were important to me. They are human beings with lives, with families, with loved ones, with dreams with, with aspirations and I wanted to provide them with a safe clean positive place to live in.

I hadn’t talked about that in forever. Now that I have… it feels good… It was good to talk about how this man hurt me and hobbled my writing. I don’t think a lot of people… Noncreative people, understand the close personal relationship artists have with their art. Like plagiarism. I don’t think any non-author… Even some soulless leech parasitic authors can understand how deeply you can harm an author by stealing his work. To steal someone’s work like my novel is not just legally wrong… It’s a moral affront and it’s a spiritual death. Now… Now that I think about it I really am I am going to scan… I found several of them the other day. And I sat and looked at them, and read them and it made me smile. I’m going to scan a few copies of the old newsletter, in the next week, I’m going to post them here at The Other Shoe. Now, My Dear Readers, do not be expecting anything grand or even the quality of what I write today. They were written in the late 90s. And they were written by much younger author than I am today. However, I think you will see even in these that when I did something? I poured myself into it. I gave it my all and I wanted to deliver the best product I possibly could.

I that’s what I wanted to share with you in this article ‘The Process’. For me the process is a spiritual process. It starts in my heart. It works out through my hands and through me speaking. It ends up on the screen of the computer, it gets edited, and then it is published to the Internet for all of you to read. But what I think I wanted you to understand in this process My Dear Readers is that when you read is something I put here on this blog you are reading a part of me! For everyone that well, those who read ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ will be seeing into my mind and hearing my spirit. That is the process. From my heart to my mind to my hands, and my voice, to the Internet and then to you. Even if it’s just a short four paragraph article. They are all important to me. You are all important to me.

HERE is the VIDEO I made while dictating this article.

Missing Texas

                        Welcome back My Dear Readers to The Other Shoe. I hope that everyone enjoyed my article of earlier today, ‘My Problem With President Obama’. That article was difficult for me to bring to paper. Difficult for me to share, and difficult for me to allow my passion to show. It is not that I have difficulty pointing out the shortcomings of Democrats, be they Congressmen or Senators of even Presidents. It is difficult for me to criticize a sitting President. On more than one occasion I have chastised; friends, Facebook posters, and followers of The Other Shoe for being too openly critical of a sitting President. I, often, point out that when you openly grind on a sitting President you run the risk of openly disrespecting  the office of President of the United States.

.

Little can be, genuinely, gained in so doing. As well, I feel that when people (writers, bloggers, TV personalities and radio talking heads) grind too much, and too often, on a sitting President we weaken our President in the international community. We weaken his ability to hold the leaders of other nations to task. We weaken our ability to build coalitions to fight oppressors and tyrants and weaken our hand in international trade agreements. This harms our nation, as a whole, and harms our standing in the international community.

.

There, I got that off my chest. Now, on to the real reason for this late-in-the-day posting. It is 8:45PM, here in California. So, it is nearly 11PM in Texas. Therefore, most of the people that this article is meant for… will not read it until tomorrow… at the earliest. That’s fine, there really is no rush. The feeling that I will do my best to communicate, in this article, is that I miss Texas. This has been building, now, for several… months… yeah, months… I’ll stick with that… right. I may have tipped-off some of my more astute readers, earlier this week, when I wrote that I was denied attendance to my own mother’s funeral.

.

I mean, I had never heard of something like that… before. An elder brother, telling his younger sibling that they were not welcome at the funeral of their mother… or father. I mean, I have read a lot in my lifetime and never before had I read of anyone being denied access to a parents funeral. If I had to come up with a Funk and Wagnall’s human definition of the word harsh? I would submit “refusing the younger brother from attending the mother (or father’s) funeral”. That, and I just have to say, IMHO that seems lot like an abusive action… by the elder brother.

.

Me writing that, putting that into an article here @ The Other Shoe surely could have been a tip-off that I was missing home. Now, there are some of My Dear Readers that will giggle or laugh… at me referring to Texas as Home. I have been, here in one part of California or another, off and on for the past thirty-four years. That means that I have spent more, of my adult life, within the borders of California than I spent in Texas. All the same, I still do consider myself a Texan.

.

If I ever win any kind of award, and I am at the award ceremony and give an acceptance speech I will mention “being a boy from a small town in Texas…”. If ever asked in an interview, I will always tell that I was born and raised in Southeast Texas. I am proud to be a Texan. It does not matter if Texas is, outside of Texas, popular or not at the time. I am a Texan and not a ‘fair-weather Texan’. I have been missing you guys a lot, of late. I read your words, on Facebook. See your posts and sometimes recent pictures of you. It is just not the same. I have to really strain to remember; how you speak, how you walked, how you laughed and how you felt when shaking my hand… or giving me a hug. I think, most of all, I miss that.

.

Another reason, I think, that this may be coming up? Next week is my 56th birthday. Just a stone’s throw from Sixty… and all that that entails. Yes, I am pretty sure that the upcoming 56th birthday could have a lot to do with these feelings of… home sick. Just now, when I was running through what I was going to type next, I thought of the word home sick and (of course) the very first time I did feel home sick. It was Church camp… some place called “Peach Creek’. I think it was Peach Creek. If anyone, reading here today, went to South Park Baptist Church in Houston, and you went to Church Camp while attending SPBC? You would remember… if that was the name. If I got it wrong, don’t be shy. Either here at my blog, or on Facebook, please correct me, K? Tell me that I remembered wrong, and do me a solid and remind of the name of the Church Camp. K?

.

Anyway, that was the very first time in my life that I ever felt home sick, was the first year I went away for Church Camp. So, I am pretty sure… that is what I am feeling, now. I know that it is not just the birthday. It is also the growing pain, in spite of the increased pain medications. It is the swollen lump at the base of my spine… on the left side. The increased white cell count, for the past six months. Yes, it is all of those things… combined. So, I just wanted to say… to all of you… in Pearland, and Houston.

.

            “I miss you.”

.

As always I am deeply honored that you come here and read my work.

.

Thank you!
