Midweek Geekiness Part Two: Onward

Yes, I saw The Hobbit.  Yes, I saw it more than once.  Yes, a review is coming.  Now that we got that out of the way, a few notable things to mention. How about finally, FINALLY becoming a member of Whedonesque.  Whedonesque devotes itself to all things Whedon and his many works.  From time to …

Now It’s Snowing Outside

The best part about WordPress is all the widgets, and other ways to personalize a blog.  I can tweak here, or tweak over there, plus feel grateful for some of the HTML training during my Library Tech program.  The bad part about WordPress is all those same widgets to tweak over here, or tweak over …

Not me.'  I don't know how the heck this happened, but I jumped from 130 to 237.  Hooray!  To those now following me  welcome and thank you.  To those earlier followers continued gratitude for your support. …
