Lazy Sunday Morning Links Vol.1

A New Home

I have owned this domain for more than 2600 days. That is over seven years for those keeping score at home. I have always wanted to “do something” with it, but the time was never right. There were always more important things to do. I don’t have that excuse anymore. Time to get to work!
