Ten Years Ago

Ten years ago today, when I was still on Blogger, I welcomed Pat Prescott as a follower. We’ve followed each other ever since, and had many interesting discussions about art, history, literature and politics, and he’s given me invaluable advice on my writing. He also taught me about the Peterloo massacre, the origin of the word “geek,” and introduced me to the wonderful film The Fifth Element.

Pat’s contribution to this blog, in the form of his many comments over the years, is incalculable. Check out his own blog, and his books. (Vander’s Magic Carpet is my personal favorite.)

Here’s to many more, Pat!


  1. Congratulations on a decade of friendship, you two!

    (And it’s impressive that you knew exactly when the decade mark would hit).

  2. You have no idea what a meat grinder of a day I’ve had, and this made me smile, blush and and tingle all over. It’s been a great friendship. I’ve enjoyed your books, your comments and especially your reviews of my work. Live Long and Prosper.

What's your stake in this, cowboy?
