Actually, the real reason for this column/ blog was
the fact that after the Homeowners News closed down,
I began to miss writing my monthly musings, and
since the HON was the victim of the upcoming
paperless society, I figured if I couldn’t beat ‘em,
I’d join ‘em. I’d go digital. And why not? I have
been an “online person” since the internet was
created. I have been an AOL customer since it was
AO.COM, because they hadn’t figured out yet what the
L it was all about.
