I’ve begun the process of moving this site to a new webhost. I found an allegedly reliable company that is located in Canada and who claim to use completely green energy source for their servers. My inner patriotic hippy promptly decided these things are important. I have a moderate at best attention span for this procedure though. So it will likely result in some downtime for this site. I’m certain you’ll pull through.
Presumably, once I get things moved I’ll be posting and doing more junk here. We’ll see how that goes, won’t we? Later gator!

A charming testament to the sweetness of youth and innocence. Kids in your hometown park are shrieking cretins. And where are their parents? There could be broken glass or snakes in that sandbox, ugh!

I know this is starting to stink of introspective feelings and junk, but I assure you it probably isn’t.
