Well, hello there!

Every so often, I Google myself.  It’s nothing to do with vanity; it’s a good way to monitor if anyone is using your name (identity) and to ensure all the accounts you have are still under your control.  Well, one … Continue reading

National Museum of Naval Aviation — Part 1

I have 386 photos to share and while I toyed with the idea of doing it all in one lo-o-ong post, I’ll instead break it up into multiple posts.  These are the pared-down versions of over 800 photos I shot … Continue reading

For various reasons, I did not do any writing yesterday. Let me rephrase that . . . I wrote a lot, but none of it for the NaNoWriMo effort. I wanted to. I yearned to. I said to myself I … Continue reading
