Alive Yes, Putting my money where my mouth is

TaggedSpace, Families

K.  I have seen the texts and emails.  Got it.  It is thought that a blog is about posting.  Got that too.  But this isn't a "blog", it was started several years before that ugly term went viral.  This is a web site, made from the ground up by me to test out how a web site is made from the ground up.  A "blog" [ick and ewww] is a tool that people who don't know how to code and script use to promote themselves.  Some are great, many are vanity plates.

And don't get me started on Facebook.

I don't want this to be a vanity plate. 

I put stuff here that I need to remember so I can go back and find it when I forget. Though sometimes when the whiskey hits me just right I guess I do use this as a place to vent or pontificate, there's no need to remember my foibles.

But if you really truly use this to figure out where I am (which makes me feel rather odd) then I guess I am honored... and feeling odd. 

So here's the reason it's been nearly a year since anything has gone up here:  I'm busy working on what the last post eluded to.  Putting a bit of my money and a whole heck of a lot of my time and effort into a project that I think is as good a thing as any to help make Tomorrowland - the concept of a place that is a little better than what's around us at the moment - get closer.

My choice was helping The Space Studies Institute (  It has been completely mind blowing.  I had some idea of what this organization was but I thought it was a big "WAS" and I was wrong.  Because SSI doesn't lobby and isn't into the scare tactics of some other groups out there it seemed to be a dead thing.

It is not.

It just has a different tack, because it truly has a different purpose.

Go take a lookLook deep

That's where I've been. 

happy birthday!
