Jim is a retired bass player currently residing in California with his wife. He (used to work) a "real" job these (those) days, which keeps (kept) him from such menial tasks as blogging and/or writing the Great American Novel. Sadly, this means (meant) that the denizens of Calamity Falls may stay forever frozen in time, barely developed (if even mentioned) and existing as mere magnetic anomalies on a now-unused hard drive. Or not. The blog has been updated to reflect Jim's new employment (unemployment) status.
