First of all, this is NOT a Blog.  WordPress seems like a pretty convenient way to organize some of my thoughts, so I am giving it a try.  I have never understood why anyone would read a random blog.  My hope for this part of my site (not a blog) is that the content will be picked in searches and that some of it will be useful to people with similar interests as myself.  Of course, relatives and friends may be subject to an expectation that they will read some of these posts.
