May 28, 2019: 12th Annual - Random Cake Holiday!!!
Posted by JeffsFort
There are some traditions that were started as a laugh that we refuse to let die. This is one started by our favorite role model and yes, The Fort Family celebrates it to this day...

*Random Cake Holiday* Emailed By Comicality!
That's right! I said 'Random Cake Holiday'! Hehehe! Don't ask any questions, don't worry about the rhyme or reason WHY you should do it...just DO IT! We had a conversation in the chat tonight, and this lack of cake is just unforgivable. So today, I want each and every single person reading this, to go out somewhere and find yourself a piece of cake to eat! I don't care HOW you get it, or WHAT kind of cake it is! But there are just way too many people who have gone TOO long without having a piece of cake!
You can laugh all you want! Feel silly doing it! I don't care! Whatever! Just go out, find some cake, and enjoy it for the simple fact that you CAN! And I'm not talking about some moldy old store bought sliver of cake that you can buy for a quarter at the counter of your local gas station! I mean actual *CAKE*! Go to a bakery, go to a neighbor's house, hit up the old lady that does volunteer work at the resource center in your area, bake your own and give half of it away to someone else who doesn't have cake, play your Cake cd on your car radio..whatever...but don't you DARE let the sun set without getting a taste of that sweet sweet cake goodness! C'mon...don't you want some CAKE??? I do!
The only time we get to have cake is at weddings, birthdays, Bar Mitzvahs, and bachelor parties. And that's just wrong! So if you needed a reason to eat cake, then here it is. It's cake day. GO! Get some! Enjoy it! Do it for the simple fact that you have absolutely NO reason to do it other than I told you so! Hehehe! Savor it!
That's right....I'm going to get mine as soon as I get up tomorrow! Believe me! Mmmm cake...
Spread the word!

May 27, 2019: From us to all of you...
Posted by AC
Today, the US is observing Memorial Day. While this is not observed world-wide, I ask all of you to take the time today to thank the people that you know who have served in your nation's military services. Without them, the stories that you read here would not be possible, as the soldiers and sailors of the world sacrifice their time, and sometimes their lives, to give you the rights and freedoms that you enjoy every day.
To all of my brothers and sisters of the world who are now serving, have served, or have given their lives in service to their country, I salute you.
US Navy - 1985-1987

May 19, 2019: More to keep you occupied during bad weather - Memories III Chapter 36
Posted by AC
Just to prove that I have not forgotten, I have also been working on Memories while I was collaborating with Jeff and Lindon on 'unBroken'!
So tonight I'm giving you another peek into the lives of the boys of Alpha Prime, as the boys work to help one of their newest members begin the path to recovery.
Beware the Bear, as he has no mercy when injured!

What happens when you put three insane authors in a locked room and tell them to cooperate?
You get a story that makes you wonder just how they managed to pull it off.
The subjects of this experiment are ACFan, Lindon Weztser, and JeffP ... and the end result is a little story we call "unBroken"! Chapter One is now live, and we're all waiting to hear what you think.
Just look for us under the name "unBroken Authors" -- anything the three of us put together is going to be under that name.
We all hope you enjoy the story!
ACFan, for the unBroken Authors
