Things That Swing

For those following my blog (if I did it right), you will notice a new look for the new year.

I’m going to post a reconnoiter kind of article a little later (Not now, this is not that one), where I will compare what direction my blog has taken, compared to it’s beginnings. Has it gone the way I expected? More on that later.

Right now, just a few personal updates…

I finally got insurance, so I’m looking for a local doctor in my network to begin dealing with my health issues. I had been going to a clinic for a few years, but they shut down. I saw one regular doctor and two specialists through that clinic. So now, I’m insured.

Over the holidays (actually starting last October), my work hours were drastically cut, the weather has been nasty, and I have been lazy. I have gained some pounds back after losing at one point 102 lbs. I have not been doing my walking. Eating more + less physical activity = well… who knew?

My guitar student is likely hooking me up with a new student. I’m looking forward to that.

Also, I have been studying HTML5 (a coding language), and I will also be learning some of the other coding languages. I will be getting my own domain soon, and begin using what I am learning to create at least one blog on

I have not been writing very much lately. LOTS of reading though. The more I read, the better writer I become. But, as I have written in this blog before: Sometimes I am a writer who doesn’t.

This Sunday, January 11, 2015, I will be 55 years old. Maybe its time to get serious about some things. Ya think?
