I visited the Aran Islands in 2005 and found myself at a place beyond my imagination. Housed on the edge of a cliff (hundreds of feet above the ocean) on the island of Inishmore was a stone fort aging back to the Iron Age—Dún Dúchathair (The Black Fort). The stones of these forts have no mortar; they're just standing on their own without any ropes or fences.
When I visited this fort, early one morning, a dog was roaming around, sniffing the rocks, and when I ventured a little closer
Existence by David Brin
After ten years of absence, David Brin is finally back with a new novel. Reading Existence, it is not difficult to imagine how that monster of a book took so much time to write.

I've been hiding from the world a bit recently, slugging through my ms to make sure it's as good as it can be before sending it off to the publisher 93k worth of reading, re-reading and adjusting and now... I'm finally DONE!
Ta-Daaa.... well, it's my cover, it's not the one the print version will have but I'll post that later.

My fiancee and I had to have a meeting with the church minister,as my fiancee has been previously married.
The minister needed to find out about his previous marriage to find out if we could get married in a church.
That particular church is important to me personally.
Not only has my brother been married there.
My parents were married in that church.
Up to my great grand parents.
To me getting married there would mean I am keeping with that tradition .

Hi everyone. My favorite authors are Bentley Little and Troy Denning.
So I went to just look at bridal dresses yesterday.
So many to choose from.
The one I chose to try on brought me to tears.
I looked at myself for the first time as a bride.
I could see a glimpse of my wedding day.
There was my mother in tears as she saw her baby standing in front of her now a woman dressed as a bride.
We both embraced each other with tears of joy.
The staff were wonderful, friendly and kind.
After one congratulated
It's time for my Nexus 6...
