The Christmas Decorations Are Up

That’s right, it’s a “Christmas” theme. Not a “Holiday” theme. I’m totally not into that politically correct crap, where we cannot possible offend anyone for any reason, or exclude them.

The New Site Design Is Up

It’s amazing how a little spare time evaporates quickly and a quick project turns into one that takes much longer than anticipated. But such is life. The re-styles theme for the site is up. As usual, there are a few rough edges that will smooth out over the next few days. I am going to […]
