After much procrastination, and equal amounts of encouragement and inspiration from friend and blogger Rick Wilson (his Laurel Connections blog is at http://conexshuns.blogspot.com), I have gotten around to posting something to this WordPress site that I’ve had for some time.
The content of this blog will be all over the place. Of course, a lot of it will be centered around Laurel, MD where I live; not in the historic section, like Rick, but still in the Old Town part of Laurel. I had the privilege of writing the Old Town column for the Laurel Leader for a number of years, so you can expect to see a lot about our fine city and its interesting people. But I will also take advantage of the blogosphere’s breadth and depth to help scratch my writing itch and share whatever comes to mind – about work, rest and play. My goal is to make it readable. And viewable, as I have gotten very much into posting videos on YouTube. They have been mostly videos for family and friends, but if I can figure out the tech part, I’ll embed photos and video whenever I feel it can help a story … or if I just need a “thousand words.”
Thanks for taking the time to read or view whatever ends up here.
