Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

Just wanted to let you all know (or, as some would say, 'y'all'), that I have some updates coming soon. There will be a new blog about technology, one about the ONE program and the small part that I play in that, a garden update, and I will be continuing my post about reconciliation.

So, keep coming back. I will try and make this stuff more regular.

Peace be with you.
