It would appear that the Victoria Advocate is certainly moving up in the world of technology. I am very impressed with the new Web digs. I am also very impressed with the VICAD support staff. Thanks for the help.
 For some time now I have been trying to get my old blog content restored. Much to my dismay this has been unsuccessful. I have no idea why this is so difficult but I am certainly not bent out of shape for it. Actually, I have taken it as a sign. A sign that I am not the same person I was 18 months ago. I am different. I am new but I am old.
Keeping that in mind I figured it was time to start over. I am still not done posting my stories from Iraq but for the most part a new chapter in my life has begun and who better to share it with than the people of my home region. Those people who have groomed me in some way, some a little more literally than others.
Here’s to the next few years! Be on the lookout for my final stories from Iraq and new and insightful (or not) ranting about politics, little tidbits of ancient history, and maybe even a little comedy.  Stay tuned!
If you would like me to post one of my earlier blogs, just ask.
