Greg’s Blog… and place to experiment
While this is my personal blog, it's also my sandbox and sometimes I leave my toys lying around.
The latest blog entries are down a bit farther on the page.

Current collection of sites I'm working on
I've been working to build out a large and growing number of different websites. You can browse them from within this slider. Still lots of work to do but the backend components are coming together. I still have some front end adjustments to make.
Collection of feeds and searches I use to keep track of various topics of interest to me, if they are of interest to you, that's great, if not, oh well, they're not there for you anyway.
