    Hello, blog followers. I’ve gone from nothing in 2010 to “hold on tight” in 2011. Long-distance projects mean lots of driving. The project here in Florida is 158 miles from where I live. The next project will commence in May and is in New York City. This will provide lots of blogable photos and subject […]
