Retrospective: 13 Years in the Valley, Part 1


A lot of life has been happening, and it seems maybe I need a little perspective - and so this “retrospective”.

Why Part 1?

Well, I haven’t quite gotten into the habit of regular blogging yet, so whatever is done by the time my lunch break is over is what’s getting posted. I’d say lunch hour, but some of that time was taken getting some essentials:

New Year, New Projects, New Blog


Well… the last part is a bit of a stretch. I’ve had this account for quite some time.
