Williamsburg

So we got a wild hair and decided to go to Williamsburg for two reasons; our 40th anniversary; and to get more familiar with the area. We booked a room at the Williamsburg Whitehouse, loaded up the car and hit the road. Instead of the dreaded I-95, we decided to take the local route and drive Highway 1 down to Williamsburg. It’s a bit out of the way and definitely a longer drive, but it’s decidedly less stressful than I-95 to I-64. We arrived in the afternoon, checked into the hotel, and then headed to Food for Thought for dinner. The restaurant business is Williamsburg is struggling a bit with…

Catching up

There hasn’t been a photo related entry here since July. Sorry about that. So, lets try and catch up a bit, shall we? Back in July, Jourdan and Stefani were finally able to visit up here in Northern Virginia. We had not seen them since the pandemic descended upon us, so it was quite a treat to pick them up at the airport. Unfortunately, their flight departure was pushed back a week as one of Stefani’s co-workers was diagnosed with Covid and she was tagged as being in close contact. Luckily it was all for naught, but the delay caused their trip to overlap with a planned 40th anniversary ceremony…

Merry Christmas

Good morning and Merry Christmas to you all. Typically on Christmas morning, I sit down in the morning before everyone arises and craft an e-mail summarizing the year for distribution to a plethora of things.

As you can see, the website is still in a bit of flux, but that’s not the topic of todays’ discourse. Things on the site will get better, but for now, this is what we have. In last years’ e-mail we had prognosticated that we would get…

Making Headway!

So, the Twenty Twenty-One theme “seems” to be the keeper. There are a number of customizer add-ins available which I think will get me where I want. Yay. You might see the formatting change a bit while I experiment. Don’t be surprised if an ugly green pastel background makes it’s appearances, at least for brief periods of time. Chances are, I’ll turn on commenting, you too will be able to participate in the sausage making exercise. I’ll most likely make a post or two in the next couple of days. There has been a goodly things going on in our lives, both photographic and not. In years past, I’ve crafted…

Quick update

I know you have been sitting next to your computer in utter anticipation of when the site issues would get resolved and I would start posting wonderful photos again. LOL, right….. Anyway, I’m pretty certain that I’m going to use one of the base WordPress themes, specifically Twenty Twenty-One, and then tweak it to suit my desires via add-ins and CSS. So, I’ll clean up all the posts to display nicely before I start tweaking, and then jump into the CSS pool. This means that I can also start posting again, as none of the modifications I’m postulating will affect the posts, other than formatting. I know you are over…
