King of Obsolete



December 2020


In 2003, I bought my first computer as the King of Obsolete so I could see the world through my computer screen. By 2004 I had enough computer skills to start this website so the rest of the world can see how I live at the end of the world in the Great White North. I have figured the website has become quite successfully with people around the world emailing or posting on Facebook about how they enjoy my lifestyle. Through www.kingofobsolete.ca website, the world has seen my daughter Xena which I raised as a single parent since birth, grow up to be an independent women who works along side me. Plus the website has helped me publish books which are around the world with people enjoying no matter if they are male or female or English is not their main language. With the website being popular around the world i was able to appear as a guest on Ice Road Truckers TV show in seasons 7 & 8 which was a lot of fun. I'm proud to tell everyone that I'm a single parent of a daughter, published author and on national TV around the world all from my Kingdom at the end of the So-Called road to Lynn Lake Manitoba.


With the Covid 19 lock down which started March 31 2020 for us at the end of the world. I have been able to write my 5th book to 9th book with the gates to the Kingdom closed because we are locked down. These new books deal with my Wasted Youth growing up around Brandon Manitoba.
