Dra­mat­ic words, no?  Mean­ing­less words?  Some would have you believe. Con­sid­er “open” for a moment.

Back in the (Somewhat Random) Saddle

I have been slack­ing.  I even have sev­er­al posts pret­ty much ready and I’ve been slack­ing.  To be com­plete­ly hon­est with myself, I think my father’s death last year affect­ed my desire to express myself more than I thought.  He … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Compliments Lost in Translation

I post­ed a bit about the spam on this site before.  It’s not like I have that many read­ers, but as far as I can tell, it’s worth a lot of Google Kudos ™ to get your site linked by … Con­tin­ue read­ing

A Small Reorganization

I think it’s time for a small reor­ga­ni­za­tion.  Accord­ing to my word­press theme, I can have one menu.  Since this site start­ed, that menu has been “Home — About — GLI.”  The “About” page real­ly isn’t required any more and … Con­tin­ue read­ing

Thoughts on Google Ads and My Content

This Just In: Person I potentially don’t know linked to my blog

I sup­pose it’s been about 8 months.  Fright­ful­ly few­er posts that I’d like to have made in that time, but about 8 months — since I start­ed the blog.  I’ve watched the sta­tis­tics… used the google tools to see how … Con­tin­ue read­ing

New Image: Fail

By-the-way: There’s a new image at the top of the site.  Not that I was spent a lot of time look­ing for it, or that I’m mak­ing some deci­sion about how the site will look or how images at the … Con­tin­ue read­ing
