Enough with the lame cat photos

Pictures speak a thousand words so that's what I use when I'm busy putting a thousand words into my next novel. Obviously, I've been busy lately. Today, my buddy Tommy got the recognition he so deserves from the St. Petersburg Times. His Sticks of Fire blog is simply the most worthwhile blog in Tampa. Full disclosure: I contribute weekly to Sticks but his are the posts that make the blog worth reading. Tonight I'm going to hear Lisa Miscione, a great local writer of thrillers. She's well-known and well-published and still very nice to newbies like me. She'll be at the Safety Harbor Public Library at 6:30 this evening, December 8th. And now a question for somebody like Chase Squires of the St. Pete Times. Am I the only person who liked Threshold? Lost is my favorite television show but I always watched Threshold too.

I loved Threshold, it was a lot of fun with a lot of mystery ... speaking with one of the co-creators last summer, he told me the story arc called for the U.S. Governement eventually to fall, chaos, etc ...

I tried last week to get an interview with the producers, so I could do a story about "what would have happened" for the loyal viewers, but they decided against, likely to avoid saying something nasty that would get them in trouble with the network for future efforts ...

Bottom line: good show, lousy time slot. sigh. On the other hand, ABC has signed stinker Freddie for a full year .... argh.

Wow. Thanks for the feedback, Chase. Now that I know about your blog, I'll be checkin' it out regularly. Everybody knows I'm a book junkie but I'm a closet TV addict too. Hmmm, also movies. I guess I just like entertainment in general.

Threshold had a great cast. I'll be curious to see where they all end up next.

I enjoyed "Threshold" also. Sounds like it's been cancelled (I'm a bit behind in my TV watching; wonder what I've been taping on Friday nights lately?).

Books, movies, TV...that's pretty much the good stuff in life. Oh, and love, family, a good job, and junk like that. :)

I enjoyed your cat photos too.

Thanks, Lisa. It's a true pal who can appreciate somebody else's cat pix. I have other pets but I'm featuring Cleo because *sob* she is 14 and not in good health. She needed her 15 minutes of fame before it's all over.
