I saw an old friend recently and he said, “Hey, how come you didn’t write about your new ukuleles you got on your blog?” “I think I did,” I said. “No. I just searched it. You don’t have anything on there,” he said. Oops… Most of my friends and readers know that I grew up […]

This was my first time at Word Camp. For those who’s never heard of this, it’s tech seminar on using WordPress. What’s WordPress? WordPress is a content management system and this site was built using WordPress. I made this blog posting in a blog lecture. The speaker said we should blog during class.

Day 2 NaNoWriMo 2015

Posted by dwallace on November 2, 2015 in Uncategorized |

Today I registered my domain name. It’s www.bobmarleyneversmokedpot.com There’s nothing there yet. But I’m doing one task a day for 30 days. And I kind of feel like since the book is already written, I’m way ahead of the game. I did spend a several hours pouring over old stories and essays. Just looking through […]

Vladi-Yadi (and sometimes Buddy)

Posted by dwallace on October 14, 2015 in Uncategorized |

I got a new foster dog this week. He’s a 8.5 lb. Chihuahua-mix named Vladi, after Valdmir Tarasenko, a St. Louis Blues hockey player. We also call him Yadi after the St. Louis Cardinals catcher, who if his thumb wouldn’t have been hurt we would have perhaps beat those bastardous-assed Cubs. Either way, both Yadi’s […]

Now if I could just get out of the US for a week or so.

My Private Used Book Store

Posted by dwallace on August 3, 2015 in Private book store, Uncategorized |

I have recently been accused of being a book hoarder. I have also been accused of not reading all the books I own. There are hundreds on the shelf, so maybe they’re right. Ok, it’s true, both statements. But for the record, I have read more than I haven’t. Either way I’ve started pulling half-read […]


My New Project

In case you are wondering what I’ve up to, I have started doing research for a book on businesses that a person could start for under $1000. My premise is, “If you lost your job tomorrow, would you be willing to get out and hustle if I showed you 50 different businesses that you could […]

Steal Like An Artist

Posted by dwallace on November 24, 2014 in Uncategorized |

I picked up Steal Like An Artist by Austin Kleon yesterday and read it cover to cover in one sitting. It’s been a while since I’ve done that. Some of the highlights were: 1. You’re allowed to steal other people’s ideas.      You’re not plagiarizing per se, but putting your own twist on something that’s […]

Atua: Sacred Gods of Polynesia

Posted by dwallace on November 23, 2014 in Uncategorized |

I grew up in Hawaii from the ages of 11 to 24. Now I’m a landlocked beach boy stuck in the middle of the United States. Today on a cold, rainy day here in St. Louis, I miss Hawaii even more than I normally do in the winter. Today I went to the St. Louis […]
