This blog is merely an experiment – to see if I can get in the habit of writing consistently.   Don’t expect any deep thoughts or meaningful conversation.   There’s no rhyme or reason to the things that interest me — but maybe you’ll be intrigued by something along the way.

Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read.  I’ll leave comments on for the time being – but if I start getting evil spammers I’ll turn them off and friends & family will just have to sent me direct e-mail to comment.

To follow me on Twitter, navigate to my Twitter page and request to “follow” me, or send a text message to 40404 with “follow sparklyshiny” in the body of the message.  The account is restricted to people I know, people I follow, and individuals who have similar interests, so I’ll have to approve you before you can start receiving updates.   If you decide to sign up with Twitter and use a fairly generic name (as I did), please drop me an e-mail so I will know it’s you!
