Did you know I have a film blog? I admit, I don't post as often as I should, but I do try to highlight films that I feel deserve special attention. Yesterday, I went to see a double feature at the Roxy Theater in Saskatoon and loved both movies: Alexander Payne's "Nebraska" and Matthew McConaughey'...

Ever have one? You know. That most brilliant idea that you want to put down on paper. You want to use in your story. You want to use to accomplish something big today. You want to tell your best friend or your significant other. It’s there, right there, and then when you need it most, its gone...

Elk at the Lee G Simmons Conservation Park and Wildlife Safari in Ashland, Nebraska. This is rutting season and so we couldn't stop the car and I had to get a shot while we were driving by. They're very territorial and dangerous at this time of year. Last year, they were okay--because we...

Seals in love... This is what comes of two SEALS, well, seals frolicking. And then we have a SEAL wolf and an undercover operative sparring... And this is what comes of that frolicking business if they're not careful... My thoughts on A SEAL Wolf Christmas What I love most about Terry Spear’s...
