R.I.P George Martin

I’m very sad to learn of the passing of George Martin. He was an incredibly talented man who worked with The Beatles on all of their recordings. Unfortunately his series of fantasy books will now never be finished.

Toxic Jelly Fish

The nice folks over at WFSB in Hartford are reporting toxic jelly fish have been spotted in Long Island Sound. This is great news! Just this morning my neighbor Mr. Biggs was telling me all about toxic jelly fish while he rerouted my air conditioning ducts to his house.

THE RUSSIANS ARE COMING!

For the last twelve months my website has been under constant attack from Russian hackers. I do not know why they have selected me out of the millions of other websites on the world wide web, but they did.

Pop-up Books for Teens

It has been nine (9) years since I first mailed out this query letter, for what I maintain may be one of the best ideas I have ever had – or top ten at least.  Anyway, I think I am still waiting for a response to this one…which is frustrating since I included a self-addressed, stamped envelope so they could …

Mr. Crowley

My neighbor Mr. Biggs stood in his driveway, clutching a garden hose like a microphone.  He bent his legs, arched his back, and bellowed to the twilight sky. “Mr. Crowley, what went down in your head Oh, Mr. Crowley. Did you talk to the dead?” He stopped singing and asked me if I knew that song. I smiled broadly and …

My Lost Hat

My schedule over the last few weeks has been hectic, including cross-country travels presenting my symposium on alien cow probing.  As a result, my post office box was over-filled with correspondence I am just getting to now. Back in March I was distraught because I lost my hat and wrote this letter. KENNETH SNIPPS PO BOX 9411 FORESTVILLE CT 06011-9411 …

Traveling with Furry Friends

Anyone who loves pets knows it can be difficult to travel with them.  That is why I am thrilled to have received correspondence from the nice people at Blue Swallow Motel in Tucumcari, New Mexico. Their place is right on famous Route 66, which is the way I go to Area 51 from Forestville. I am in the process of planning …
