Happy 4th!

Hello hello! I hope my American readers and a pleasant 4th of July and my Canadian readers had a good Canada Day! Now that we’ve kicked the season off with explosions and grilling, summer must really be here! Of course, as I type this post it is (once again) pouring rain… I’m not sure I…

A Try-Color Look

As I’m sure you’ve realized if you’ve been around this blog much, it’s a rare week that I post about going to Salem and don’t post about having found some new treasure a few days later!

A Different Tune

For some reason, blogging has been a bit tricky of late. The class that was taking up all my time is done (yay!) so I’m back to working and a slightly more regular schedule… but spending three months firmly attached to the best and brightest new web technologies makes Google’s neglected blogger service look really…
