Back From Vacation – Unpacking Some Clothes

The blog has been silent for a little while once again. Part of the reason for the lack of activity was that I went on a little vacation. I flew down to Atlanta to visit my brother and attend Dragon Con for the first time. Then I came back home and relaxed for the rest […]

I’m Back…I Think (At Least For Now)

Even though my interest in blogging had been somewhat waning, I didn’t intend to reduce my output to one post every four months. You can thank my job for that.

After I moved out, I’ve gotten out of that world for the most […]
