                   Welcome back, My Dear Shoevians, to The Other Shoe. First, I would like to say “Thank you!” to all you Shoevians that keep coming back… and viewing… and reading… and sharing. You ARE the BEST! Second, I would like to express my heartfelt apology for not“returning to publishing” as I stated in my last article back on February 13th, 2016. Finally… an explanation.

.

When I wrote my last published article, it was my real and genuine intent to work towards returning to my regular writing and publishing schedule. However, as most of us know, between desire and reality lives a gulf of possibilities… and a world of tears and broken promises. The fact of the matter is; on the morning of February 14th (Valentine’s Day) I started up my computer (with the intent of writing several articles, to be published over the next week), as I have thousands of times before, launched Google Chrome and brought up the admin pages of my four blog locations.

.

I had just logged on to all four admin pages… and… BAM! BSOD!!! (Blue Screen of Death). The computer rebooted, after saving the dump file, and…  it… was… dead! The video adapter was not working. The computer ran incredibly slow, and I was unable to connect to the internet… regardless of what I did. Over the next two weeks, whenever I was out of pain enough, I worked on the computer. I did everything I had ever learned about video cards, and Windows errors… to no avail. My Dear Shoevians, within hours of publishing that promise… I was unable to honor my commitment.

.

The following Monday, not the 15th but Monday the 22nd, I took my computer back to the people that had fixed it the last time. They kept the computer for TEN DAYS! Only to return it to me… unrepaired, explaining that “the motherboard needs to be replaced… it is on backorder.”I am to bring my computer back (again) Thursday and they are going to have the motherboard effect the replacement. At least… that is what I am being told.

.

My Dear Shoevians, over the past year I have invested; MORE THAN $400 in repair costs, weeks of time waiting, and a tremendous amount of anxiety and frustration. I have been completely unable to write and publish! I have been lost! All the while more and more newsworthy incidents have occurred… and I have been voiceless the entire time!!! I deeply long to write and publish articles about; the debacle that is the Trump campaign, the deep division growing in the Republican Party and the violence! I am just dying to write about the; bigotry, racism, intolerance, xenophobia, hatred, and sexism that has been the hallmark of Trump’s campaign. This is very difficult for me, very frustrating and extremely upsetting.

.

If they can/do replace my motherboard, and my computer works, I will work to write and publish as often as possible. I genuinely long to write about; this election, the Trump candidacy, the tenure of narrative coming from the Republican candidates and contrast that withDemocrat nomination process. I can remember sitting, with my father, and watching the ‘Kennedy/Nixon’ Presidential debate. (The very first one with the sweaty Nixon) As well, I remember a great deal about all the Presidential elections since. My Dear Shoevians, I have never EVER witnessed a more; divisive, hurtful, negative and superficial nomination process (by either party) in my entire life. And, I am missing out on writing about this historic election… because after spending $400 on repairs… my computer still does not work.

.

There you have it, My Dear Shoevians. The why I was unable to keep my previous promise to you. The how I hope to, now, meet that challenge. And the when it might happen. Oh, how I wish I was of the means to just forget the notebook computer I have used for writing and publishing these past five years. How I wish that I had the means to just buy a new computer and all the software that I need/use very single time I write and publish. I could never put into words… the feeling I get when I hit the ‘Publish’ button, and then go and view the article I have written and published at the four blog locations.

.

The pride and joy I feel as I promote the articles I have written and published on; Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Pintrest. For you see, My Dear Shoevians, that right now in my life there are not a lot of times that I do feel pride and joy. That I can have these feelings and bring entertainment and information to all of you, My Dear Shoevians? Well, that is what has given me the desire to live that has empowered me through my diseases and maladies.

.

Finally, I would like to take a moment to say “Thank you!” again to all of you from dropping by… and for many of you… for keeping coming by and visiting throughout the many months I have been absent. I promise you, I genuinely want to return. I sincerely have a ton of ideas and thoughts, insights and opinions, entertainment and information to share with all of you, My Dear Shoevians. I will keep you informed, to the best of my ability. Hopefully, soon, I will be writing you to tell you my computer is either fixed or replaced and that I will be working to achieve my previous publishing schedule. Until then, you can find me on Facebook… look me up and send me a friend request.

.

Adieu!

.

Thank you!

“Welcome back, my friends, to the show that never ends!” (a la Emerson Lake & Palmer)

.

Welcome back, My Dear Shoevians, to The Other Shoe. For the life of me, I never imagined that I would be away from writing and publishing this long. Today is Saturday February 13th, 2016 and yesterday I picked up this computer (my ‘writing computer’) from the shop. Again, the video card malfunctioned and it was in the shop for over a week. It is working, now, and it is my genuine intention to write and publish as much as my pain and shortcomings allow.

.

With the return to writing, and publishing, I will be making an effort to put in daily appearances at:Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Google+. Now, here is fair warning to all of you, My Dear Shoevians. As this is an election year, here in America, I will be; writing, publishing and promoting many ‘political’ articles. I know that there are a handful, of readers Shoevians that… well, do not enjoy my political articles. For them, I apologize, however… This year is, well, unusual (to say the least). Therefore, I feel compelled to make my voice hear and understood.

.

I will not tip my hand, right now, but I will tell you all that I have a lot to say and I will use very single writing and formatting (publishing) skill at my disposal to impart my point of view. Yet, let me put your minds at ease; I will continue to publish; ‘The Mars Report’, ‘Lost in Space’. ‘News from Around the World’, ‘Sunday Funnies’, and ‘A Week in Review’. These articles have been staples, here at The Other Shoe, and that is not about to change any time soon.

.

Now, to wrap up this announcement of my return, I want to introduce the very first article of my return to writing. Either today, or Monday, I will be publishing the newest installment of my quarterly publication; ‘Journey to L.A.!’. The article will include; three videos, a half-dozen still images, and a fairly entertaining story of my travel into Los Angeles and my return home. I will be using images from more than just the last journey, as I want to share all I witnessed… and I was hurting just too much to capture all the sights I encountered.

.

My Dear Shoevians, I invite you to check back (right here at The Other Shoe) often. Over the next several weeks I will be working all hours of day and night to write and publish as many articles (each and every week) as is humanly possible, As well, I will be purchasing ad time (by selling… some things I own) on Facebook and other outlets in order to drive more traffic right here!

.

Finally, I want to tell all of you, My Dear Shoevians, that I have missed you greatly… I have missed writing and publishing… I have deeply missed contact and conversations with all of you! I, do, love to write… but just as much (if not even more) I love to talk and share! I encourage all of you, My Dear Shoevians, to; share, question my writings, and comment as much and as often as you want.

.

I hope that we can make this blog(s) more interactive than before. I do value your; input, ideas, comments, criticism. When we work together (to make this blog better/stronger) we work together for a better blog… and a forum where we are all equals.

.

Thank you!

.

Adieu!

                      Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. With just about one month passing, I am here to announce that (barring any unforeseen circumstances) I will be returning to writing and publishing here at The Other Shoe. I have obtained a minimal internet connection ( a DSL connection) here in my home… and I now have a home ‘landline’ telephone, too. All of my closest friends? Contact me via Facebook, Email or call me and I will be happy to share this new landline telephone number.

.

My health has not improved. Matter of fact, it has taken a turn for the worse, and my neck pain is at its greatest since my head injury, nearly thirty years ago. However, it was my lack of a reliable internet connection that prevented me from keeping my publishing schedule, it was not my pain. For the past five years I have written, and published, to help keep my mind off of my cervical pain.

.

Since I wrote last I have; attended an appointment with my primary care physician, my oncologist and my all-new provider of orthotics. The crux of; I have been fitted for a brand new (and greatly advanced and redesigned) brace for my ‘left-foot-drop’, my pain medications have been increased and I have opted to not proceed with chemo or radiation therapy during the holidays!

.

I will revisit my oncologist, and the potential for treatment, during the first quarter of next year. As well, I am working to find a brand new neurosurgeon. Whereas I do not believe that there is a viablesurgery to address my degenerative neurological disease state, I am open to starting a new relationship with a new neurosurgeon… with limitations.

.

Over the next two weeks I hope to write and publish the following:

.

  • Article Revealing the CIVIL (and possible CRIMINAL) PROSECUTION of Donald Trump over his‘Trump University’.
  • Any/ALL news out of the Curiosity rover and Mars Space Observatory projects at NASA/JPL.
  • NEWEST images from; Hubble, New Horizons, and Chandra spacecraft.

.

As well, I (hope) to provide at least one article addressing the rampant (and weekly) ‘Mass Shootings’ here in America. I know that I have a fair amount of readers, especially in Texas, that are ardent supporters of mass gun ownership… I am not of that mindset.

.

Finally, My Dear Shoevians, I would like to ask for your kindness and support in one small matter. Over the coming weeks… would you please notify any; friends, family, and acquaintances that Danny is ‘Back in the Saddle Again!’

.

Adieu!
.

Thank you!
