CHANGE IS GOOD

I am going to re-do the blog site.  It will still be itwasanowl.  I noticed however that younger people are beginning to “like” the site.  I reread some of the posts and realized it’s not just for “old farts.”  The class that Tim and I will be doing together this summer is about recreating one’s […]
