Q3 2017 – life updates

It’s tiresome to say life gets busy.  While it does it is so important to make time for important things like living life.  When I started this blog in early 2017 I started to do all the research about running a successful blog and all the things…all the posts, the marketing, the sharing, the rules.  Oh the rules…so many rules that over time I became paralyzed.  I lost the site and had to rebuild, it was hard to reengage and…

A little bit of history and a good ephemera story

A little bit of history and a good ephemera story

Last Saturday I went ephemera hunting at an antique mall. Not something I do regularly. Or even occasionally. Actually it was the first time I did it.

Relaunch of the site – may it run faster, smarter, and be more enjoyable

Relaunch of the site – may it run faster, smarter, and be more enjoyable

I have launched and relaunched this site over many years. Each iteration better than the last but never filled with content because I could never quite get the site right.

So here I am again at relaunch stage. We decided to change domain providers to one that accommodates…
