My blog has MOVED!

Well maybe not moved but I copied what was here and put it over there. I like wordpress.com but I wanted my own home. I didn’t want to share it with anyone else. Maybe that’s selfish… not sure and don’t care. If you’ve subscribed here… then you’ll LOVE IT over there. Go ahead and check it out.
