All Fired Up

What’s the plan …

And so it goes ... this year I've gone from doing nothing (thank you Covid) to booking myself sideways!  Yes, back on the show circuit and trying to get myself back into the swing of working daily, and what plans I have ... First, it's the Shoreline Artists...

Where have I been?

A very tiny version of Hell …

Yup, that's what computers are ... at least that's my story for the past few weeks.   First, I got some kind of virus -- which lasted longer than the common cold, and the computer went in for a giant clean up, browsers cleared, favorites deleted -- along with my...
