Starting Up Again

After taking off 7 years from doing this project to take care of my elderly parents it's time to start up again. Both have unfortunately passed away - but I'm happy that I could take the time to take care of them. I have not regrets.

I'm hoping to discover new things again as I was doing things for them. I know it will be kind of weird to do things for me for a little while - but hope to get back into things.

I hope you will come along for the ride.
