The Way the Future Blogs, an online memoir by science fiction writer Frederik Pohl » Blog Archive » My Worst Prediction Ever: Corporate Leisure Time (http://www NULL.thewaythefutureblogs NULL.com/2009/03/corporate-leisure-time/)

He’s intelligent, insightful, and admits when he was wrong… what a guy! Oh yeah and there is still all that groundbreaking Sci-Fi he wrote to be considered.

Tiny Update

I was chastised this weekend for not updating the blog, but all I could come up with was a really good recipe for pulled pork in the crockpot. I posted it on my recipe (http://www NULL.midnightferret NULL.com/recipes) blog.

To some extent, it’s been true. I am able to do things now that I wasn’t able to do when I was younger. So what do I do with my time now that I have a little money and I have finally reconciled myself to the fact that I do have more time, and that’s ok? [editor’s note: This is a very long entry.
