Geek Speak

This is more about the blog itself than the trip.  If you know me very well, you know I have a terrific Web site at   Well OK, it might not be all that terrific, but it has tons of information about me, what I do, and my family.  So why did I start a blog on blogspot and not do it on  You know, I just did it and only a couple of days afterward did I ask myself why.

I guess I’ve always admired the Blogspot blogs.  Blogspot is a pretty nice tool.  I find it very easy to use.  It handles all the dates, links, formatting etc.  All I have to do is write.  But the more I thought about it, on Blogspot I don’t have control of the site and so if Blogspot goes out of business or for whatever reason decides to trash what I’ve posted, my stuff will be gone.  So I thought maybe I should be doing the blogging over on

I spent several hours figuring out how to get the right blog software installed and working.  I actually installed something else first and it was a mess.  But after some poking around I found this WordPress software and it has all the stuff I liked about Blogspot, and I can run it right here on and make sure it doesn’t go away.

So onward and upward with blogging on  And I pray that my purpose (to glorify God) will be manifest on this blog.
