  1. Hey, I love your blog! 🙂
    I was wondering if you could make the scrolls infinite? Like there wouldn’t be need to click on the “Older Posts” section? Because it’s obvious I will keep going there, LOL

  2. Hi
    You and I have many of the same interests–blogging, social media, tech, dogs,
    But, it also sounded from your headline about Treason Day and the colonials like we both like history which I teach.
    You visited my site Reflections (soon to be mostlyblogging.com) yesterday. I am glad you liked my Dropbox article. Thanks for the visit.

        1. I have done the self hosted thing and I would just rather someone else manage all the network stuff. I also like how connected we can be here. But there are good reasons to self host too.

    I just have one question for you: Why not Chinese food, bbq, breakfast, peanut butter, ice coffee and ketchup all together??? That would be quite a stew! (Big smile)

  8. Hi Tony. I’m pretty sure I’ve seen your gravatar image on several blogs I follow, so It’s very nice to meet you. I like the style of your About page and appreciate the humour. I’ve been married for 47 years this year, so you’ve a way to go to catch me up! I’ll pop back asap and have a browse at some of your posts. Best wishes, Mille

  9. I noticed you love sports. My grandson has a youtube pod cast. I would appreciate it if you would take a look at it. https://youtu.be/qC7jcGWuTRI. He is now eighteen. We are proud as punch of him. He is also a cancer survivor of cancer at the age of two. He had brain cancer, chemo and stem cell work. He survived with a five per cent chance. If you believe in miracles he is one. Let me know what you think. Get some of your friends to take a look. I would get a sincere high from that. Regards, Your friend Barry.
