I love that WordPress starts you off with a “Hello world!” post as the first one for your blog.  It is very appropriate.  I am headed towards retirement from my 8-5 job and a whole new world is opening up to me.  A world where alarm clocks and calendar appointments are about as scarce as a celiac at a bake off.

I am making a lot of changes, so I decided to dust off my old vanity domain I have not used in years, put some lipstick on it, and get it started documenting this part of my life.

One of the biggest changes I have made in my life is taking back my health.  I have eaten the standard american diet for a long time, and became quite ill because of it.  I am amazed at how much healthier I am now that I revised my diet.

I have fallen in love with food now.  Going along with that, I am spending more time gardening, cooking, and baking.  I will be putting recipe software on the site, but haven’t decided which one yet.  I am thinking of using WP Ultimate Recipes because it has features that let you change the number of servings dynamically and see nutritional information.

I’ve worked with computers for 35 years now, and found that the things I like the most are working with data and working with web sites, and these are the things I want to continue doing.  I’ve used Google Analytics on my web sites since they bought it from Urchin and had a ton of fun working with statistics, so this year I got my Google Analytics certification.

If you made it this far, thanks for reading!  I hope to “see” you again soon.
