This is the 1st entry of my 1st ever blog. Being such a novice at this I hope anyone that sees this will cut me some slack until I get better and more familiar with what is going on. With so much stress in a person's life, people just need an outlet for what is inside them. I have read how some "techies" are not fond of blogs being used as personal journals, but I think it will be a good way to keep my sanity. in the coming days i will be backtracking over the last 1 1/2 yrs to set up how Tam and I arrived in S. Dakota all the way from Texas.
