Announcement: Itunes Problems

Me dealing with Itunes.  Just when I got though everything I go back to square one.

My podcast Scouts Out has been eliminated from Itunes, no reason given, not sure what the problem was.  Let me assure you I will not rest until the issue is solved (well maybe a nap)(well maybe a goodnight’s sleep)(well maybe a little Netflix) but I am working on the problem.  


Now Found on the following podcast sites:

Better-Off-Dead-Sorry folks going to suspend the travel articles for a bit, but in order to continue with some original content on Saturdays I will be interviewing the writers of other blogs I read.  Next week Dave of Dave’s Corner of the Universe.

These fine writers can be found at the far right of my blog with their icons/avatars/pictures showing who or what or how they portray themselves to the reading public.  

(The first person to name the correct 80’s movie the picture above came from will get a code to get a free copy of Scouts Out e-mailed to them.)

Beginning on 8/23/2014 I will be trying something new, every Saturday I will be posting a new piece in the newest category Travel and Diversions. I posted my first unknowingly about my trip to Red Bank, New Jersey and my time in Kevin Smith’s comic book store, Jay and Silent Bob’s Secret Stash. Then because I have not been posting much original content lately I decide to challenge myself with something new and different (like the chapter a week of story of the Disinclined Purveyor of Sequential Art).

I grew as a writer while working on that and it made me stick to a deadline, so I will try again starting next week when I write about the lobby of the Walt Disney World’s Wilderness Lodge.

I am going to have a new blog site, for a short time event, A Day of Racing the Sun. Click on over if you want to learn about a little adventure I will be embarking on soon. I did not want to crowd this site with all the details and posting from it, but if you want to know a little bit more about me, maybe see a what I look like, then follow me for a short but intense posting time from the 20th to Sundown on 21 June.

I have published a book, available now in all e-book formats.

Scouts Out by A.A. Forringer for the very low retail price of 99 cents.

It is science fiction, so if that is not your cup of tea, pass this announcement on to someone who likes that nerdy geeky stuff. If your kid likes Star Wars pass this along. If your niece likes comic books forward this message to her. If you see a kid walking down the street wearing a t-shirt your don’t understand disseminate this information. If a grown man you know has a Batman sticker on his truck and he has a computer tell him to buy this book. If a woman you know likes Manga buy tell her to check it out.

Remember Scouts Out by A.A. Forringer available at and and from other fine retailers (It should be at Barnes & Noble, Sony, Kobo and the Apple store in a couple of weeks).

Free preview of 44% of the book at (Now some of you who have navigated around this site know that I had the entire book here until recently, no one ever read it as far as I can tell, maybe because of the format, maybe because it stunk on ice, well whatever the reason, now you can’t read the whole thing unless you pay for it, so sorry but you snooze you lose. That sounded harsh, of course if you want to buy it and can’t swing it I will send you the 99 cents in the mail, I mean if you have gotten this far in the announcement you must be a nice person.)

Hurry while supplies last (of course it being an e-book as long as the internet is around supplies are infinite, of course if their is a EMP which wipes out the grid of North America, and you have not downloaded the book onto your Kindle then you will have to go thru the entire apocalypse not knowing the story of Captain j.g. Leo Grant and the crew of the Arrogant Lion).

Okay here is the cover art. ScoutsoutCover
