Hello to all, and a happy new year! Was 2015 ever a thing? We’re living in the year 2016 now anyway, and we’re loving it, aren’t we? We’ve got drone-copters and hoverboard-thingys and Google for everything else.
I have no resolutions to share, though I have taken up a bit of computer programming of late. Specifically focused on the python programming language. Early days for me, however, and nothing to show for my efforts as of yet. If you’re interested in some free lessons, by the way, I’m liking codecademy.com (unprovoked plug).
Louisiana had a somewhat warm, rainy ramp-up to Christmastime and then a slightly-chilled overcast new year. Same as it ever was. I’m just now getting a touch of the sniffles, but mostly we survived the new year transition just fine. That’s about all–just wanted the record to show that I am still here. Salut!

note to self: double-check above code later.
