Day 108 – What to Expect in the Future

I apologize everyone. The blog is moving one more time. I ended up getting my own domain and started the switch to This will be the new site and after the first of the year, this site will no longer be updated. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience, but in the end I think it will prove to be the better decision. Thank you.

Yesterday, as you probably know, I registered the domain name of  With this step up in commitment, comes a step up in pursuing my passion (along with sharing it).  I’m starting to take this technology thing to the next level in my passion. 

For example, you all remember last week I tied up the Wonder Woman pattern.  The picture I took was what I thought was sub par.  As a refresher, here is what that picture looked like:
