My blog is meant to give people a glimpse of what I find interesting as I travel through the interweb, and trust me I find a lot of things interesting. Things that make ME go hmmm! Or even WTF! Or simply a random thought from time to time. Hopefully it will give you a glimpse of who I am. It should give you an idea of the things that makes me stop to think as I travel the interweb. Mostly is about sharing my likes and dislikes. Hopefully along the way you might see something you might not have seen before or even something that will make you stop and think for a second or two. Maybe, just maybe even make you smile or possibly even laugh a bit (LOL).
Anyway, I thought I would say hey! to all you who have recently joined me on my walkabout through the interweb! I hope you will continue to find it interesting. If you do tell a friend if you don’t, well there’s always tomorrow.
Either way thanks for coming along for the ride!
I have over (26) years of Computer Aided Drafting & Design experience and over (16) years of IT experience. After graduating high school I attended a Technical College and earned an Associate Degree in Drafting & Design.
