The End

Yup. I will be deleting this site. I do not need the hassle of *bot attempts to login and need to ensure something with “my name” is not used as a jumping off point for nefarious people, groups and organizations.

So by tax time (in USA) this site will cease to exist.

Ciao.

Thankful Notes: I am thankful for the piles and piles of leaves that are the result of the Autumn season of the year; they remind me of youthful fun and games playing in the leaf piles (not so much the raking of leaves though 😉 ).
