Friday (Movie) Review: Solo: A Star Wars Story

My rating: 4 of 5 stars This is another of the fill-in sort of stories we've been seeing in the Star Wars universe the last few years.

Tuesday Thoughts: Well, That Was a Weekend

If you have … Continue reading Monday Musings: Writing Updates

Friday Review: Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil DeGrasse Tyson

I can do basic stuff- make change, simple percentages, the kind of thing you actually use in life. But complicated, theoretical stuff? Way over my head. At the same time, I … Continue reading Friday Review: Astrophysics for People in a Hurry by Neil DeGrasse Tyson
