All about “Life, the Universe, and Something or Other”

Welcome to my blog!

Me? I’m Rennie Petersen, and this is my first attempt at creating a blog. Better late than never?

In July 2009, totally by accident, I got into a new hobby: Writing short humorous stories that I posted at’s forum:,7598.0.html

These were well received (thank you for your encourgement, mudpuppies) , so I tried posting some of my storries on a few other web sites. And now, “by popular demand” (well, sort of), I’m creating this blog and re-posting almost all of my stories here.  I’m also planning on posting any future stories here, although I do intend to continue posting at TheMudflats forum too.

Many of my stories are related to politics in the USA, a subject I find fascinating. There are also stories with a more global story-line, and a fair number of stories that will only be understandable for nerds. (Did you know that there are 10 kinds of people in the world, those who understand binary and those who don’t?)

Regarding the stories that have a political subject, my leftward-leaning opinions are very evident. If you think that President Barack Obama is the antichrist and that Sarah Palin is God’s gift to mankind, then you probably won’t find my stories at all entertaining.

And so, with that disclaimer out of the way, on to the stories!
