May God Bless Your New Year…

We are now eleven days into the new year and this is my first post in over a month. My site has been reconditioned and the underlying programs upgraded, so I am ready to face another year or two of blogging minus many of the hassles I had to deal with previously. For that I…

I’ll Be Back…

The last week or so I have either been developing training or giving it. Last night I pulled an all-nighter. I will be back at regular posting by the weekend at the latest and hopefully get my Hubble Tuesday up on Wednesday. Grace and peace and may the reason for the season be your raison…
