    Does This Thing Have Wheels?

    Back in the day, being mobile generally required wheels, but of course, the word “mobile” evokes images of phones now. When WordPress began in 2003, mobile phones existed, but they were far from smart. I bring this up because although I am a long-time smart phone user and a much longer-time WordPress fan, today is…

    A Trip Down Website Memory Lane

    As WordPress gears up to celebrate its 20th anniversary, I’ve ventured down memory lane and taken a look back at some of my early WordPress websites.

    Creativity is limitless. Concepts can be combined with ideas, then combined with media, then combined with fantasy, then combined with digital, then….well, you get the idea.

    First Flowers of 2023 Here at Home

    Along with daylight savings time, more sunshine, and warmer temperatures, the first flowers to bloom in our flower bed happened! Those brilliant reddish amaryllis blooms you see above are so pretty. These were here last year, but they’ve come to life again this year, and I couldn’t be happier about that.

    Preparing for “The Time after Time”

    I’ve reached that age where I understand how short our lifetimes really are. Sure, I may live for another 20 years or so, but it’s just as likely I’ll shut my eyes for the last time within a year or two. Who knows? No one, of course, but I feel the end more keenly than…

    DIYing Is Empowering

    This weekend, I put on my imaginary superhero cape, and I DIY’d all the things. Okay, not all the things, but a few things, and a few things is a lot for me. Have you ever bought a brand new, very expensive minivan that the dealer modified to turn it into a wheelchair accessible van…
