We Seem to Be in a Better State

Ye Wee Blogger

Largely Inconsequential

Fascinating for Wee Blogger & pals — anybody else, not so much.

This website is my com­ment­ary on unsub­stan­tial mat­ters; it’s a learn­ing vehicle and test­bed for web design tools and ideas. The look and style of the site may change from time to time. Don’t expect men­tion of sex, reli­gion or polit­ics in the content.
The per­son­al blog con­tent helps me keep in touch with friends, col­leagues and fam­ily spread around three con­tin­ents too. So I kill two birds with one stone.
