  1. Bud Lite and waffles are not good together!
  2. Workbench Chat, a memorable story, is scheduled to post on Wednesday, May 24th. Mike
  3. Nothing has changed at the site. Yours is the first complaint I've heard. Usually remembering your log in is a dialogue between the site and your browser. Have you changed any browser settings... such as accepting cookies? How about other sites you need to check in to? Do you have to log-in to each of them? If your browser settings have changed or if you have switched browsers you may have the problem you described. Mike
  4. MalwareBytes protects against infections... I use the premium MB + the included MS anti-virus software Windows Defender (formerly Security Essentials) and find that is the best protection for Windows 7~10. Mike
  5. I want to take this opportunity to express apologies to some who have submitted stories on speculation over the past six months or so, by telling you that all stories - unless specifically declined - are being considered. As I have been doing almost all of the site on my own recently, it has been hard for me to consider new submissions when I have a backlog of submissions by existing AwesomeDude Authors. In the next few weeks - in between twice weekly updates and preparing new stories for posting by current AD Authors - I will be going back and re-considering stories that have been in the holding pattern. There are several criteria for a story to make the grade at AD. As I review those submissions over the next couple of weeks, I hope those who have submitted stories will go back and read our submission guidelines linked to the AwesomeDude Home Page. http://www.awesomedude.com/support/submissions.htm Thanks for your cooperation. Mike
  6. Military schools? Gay? Ask this guy! At age 13, Trump's parents enrolled him in the New York Military Academy, after discovering Donald made frequent trips into Manhattan without permission Trump was not drafted during the Vietnam War.[22] While in college from 1964 to 1968, he obtained four student deferments.[23] In 1966, he was deemed fit for service based upon a military medical examination, and in 1968 was briefly classified as fit by a local draft board, but was given a 1-Y medical deferment in October 1968.[24] Trump has attributed his medical deferment to heel spurs.[25] In 1969, he received a high number in the draft lottery, which made him unlikely to be called.[24][26][27] Above courtesy of WikiMedia not WikiLeaks...
  7. Starts May 10th at AwesomeDude.com! "There are things we know....... and things we don't know we don't know." Donald Rumsfeld Yet, in this world of fast communications, technology, and modern science, there are those mysteries, those undefined, those unheard of, and those unbelievable phenomena around us, unseen and unknown until, one day, something catches our attention, brings us to a sudden realization, there are creatures, other than us, existing in another form or another dimension. Borders cannot hold them, our minds have a difficult time interpreting what we thought we saw, yet they are there, in the shadows, living among us! I invite you to read, "Border Wolves- the Scent of Love- The Scent of Death!" Nick Hall
  8. No guessing here who that guy was!
  9. Chapter One has really captured my interest. It is an unusual plot, something fresh. Please do continue to develop this story, then have a good editor go over it and make it 'web ready' Very nice start! Mike
  10. Seventh Day Adventist and Medical Dr. John Harvey Kellogg of Battle Creek, Michigan, (1852 - 1943) is considered to be the father of the concept that circumcising male infants in the United States would serve some health purpose, while at the same time desensitizing young boys' glans and therefore (hopefully) would deter them from arousal and the dreaded masturbation. This barbaric mutilation of infant boys is still commonly practiced in the United States and other less civilized countries is traced to this nut case. Fortunately, I was able to intervene eight years ago to make sure this ritual mutilation wasn't inflicted on my newborn grandson. I resented the mutilation of myself as a newborn infant so much that -to this day- I refuse to purchase any food products manufactured or marketed by Kellogg.... even the much desired toaster waffles EGGO.

  11. In the end, though, Hec turned out pretty well.
  12. Rick Beck's novel Benz starts serialization on Wednesday, July 26th. Rick writes: " It's a mystery that takes the investigator and then his client into the haunts of the homeless in San Diego. It brings the characters into contact with homeless gay kids and the ever present AIDS epidemic. I introduced Angus McCoy in Taz & Kodak III, Metal Peace. " Dude says: I'm sure you'll enjoy this dramatic tale by one of our best storytellers.
  13. While we try to encourage creativity in writing we clearly stipulate certain content restrictions as posted in our submissions policy. you can read the entire document here under the 'Submissions' tab on the AwesomeDude Home Page http://awesomedude.com/support/submissions.htm. Particularly relevant is the second paragraph under the heading What kind of stories do you usually accept?. Let me say, that while many stories falling outside these guidelines over the past 13 years by wannabe AD authors have been rejected, I have only had to decline posting two by current AwesomeDude Authors. Yes, we turned thirteen years old on April 3rd. Mike
