I was at dinner with friends recently and, during the course of our mutual catching up, was told that I have the most spectacular stories. We’re all travelers in that group, both for work and for pleasure, so the fact that I seem to have the most unusual experiences of all of us is notable….
Sketchnotes and the Talent that Wasn’t
I Confess I’m Envious For years I’ve been slightly and openly envious of the people in my life who are able to take notes with corresponding illustrations. To my mind, it is an indicator of deeper understanding of a concept which implied a more complete learning/recollection of it. A year or so ago I discovered Sketchnotes. It appeared to…
WordCamp Fayetteville 2015

The lovely folks there can teach a thing or two about WordPress just as easily as they teach you about hospitality. I didn’t take any pictures all weekend, so I have for you one picture of me with a banner and…

Road Trips with Large Dogs
Summer is starting which mostly means that my fridge will begin to feature pitchers of lemonade and tons of salad makings. It also means road trips. I take a ton of road trips over the course of a year and I like to take Pepper when it’s possible. For any of you who have traveled with…
Prairie Grove Battlefield Park
We celebrated Memorial Day by visiting a local battlefield. The last time I was there I think I still was a single-digit age and they have made a driving tour since then. We took that driving tour and a ton of pictures while we did it. But not while we were driving. No humans were…
