Welcome to my blog! I've spent the last couple of weeks (Nov 08) playing with the format, adding links, pictures and any other doo-dad I can think of. As I've mentioned in the Header and About-Me Sections, the "Prime Directive" of this blog will be to keep my family, friends, acquaintances and even perfect strangers updated on my writing and gaming projects. The secondary goal is to keep visitors informed about world events, especially about my primary concern--our war against terror. However, I don't want this blog dominated by the gloom & doom of today's headlines. Also, many visitors will have no interest whatsoever in wargaming. So I've added several links to humorous and entertainment websites for the casual browser. Thank you for visiting! Sincerely, Ted
I'm a retired USAF TACP (Tactical Air Control Party) member, now working for Washington State Emergency Management. In addition to being an Emergency Operations Specialist at my day/night/weekend job, I'm a Foreign Affairs Specialist, gamer and writer.
I maintain three blogs as an on-line platform. "Stern Rake Studio," my central site, explores a variety of topics on gaming, pop-culture and writing. "Station WTFO" is where I post comments and discussions on the national and international issues that concern us. Finally, "The Redshift Chronicles," is a spin-off of "Stern Rake Studio." This site focuses on sci-fi gaming and is home to my long-form webcomic "Breakout from Bongolaan."
