The Beginning

Ok... Here goes.

After many failed and half-hearted attempts at creating a personal web site, I've decided to change tack and try something different: a personal web log. This blog is "personal" in the sense that it's content is directed towards members of *my family* and/or possibly any friends who might be interested.

Mostly, this blog will serve as support for my photo gallery (Gramlingville Gallery) , which is kind of abandoned... even my own family rarely bothers to visit any more! (Don't think I don't know! my hit counter shows me how many visitors I have had!).

Granted, I haven't been very diligent about updating my gallery ... nor have I consistently communicated updates to everyone, so I can't really complain too much. On the other hand, I haven't exactly been showered with emails from family members either (ahem!), and I very rarely receive pictures from anyone either.

So this is my attempt to turn over a new leaf. The way I figure it, writing *one* message every once in a while that everyone can read will be alot easier than writing several individual emails for everyone ;-)


So that's it. I'll start out by announcing the latest update to the gallery: pictures from our USA trip in December and January of this year: New Jersey, Manhattan, Kansas City, Christmas, the Great Wolf, the Ice Storm ... it's all here. All of my pictures: not just a selection of the best or most representative ;-/

Pictures: December 2004 - January 2005

Sorry! In the future I will try to feed them in little by little, so as not to be too overwhelming!

Just wanted to leave a comment. What a great idea to have this blog. Even if not everyone may be interested now, this log will be invaluable to your family 100 years from now!!! assuming we still read anything in 2105 instead of maybe having our brains 24x7 connected to TV's or iPod's technological successor.
I loved the pictures. Keep'em coming!
... And sse you at our next churrasco or hamburger outing.

Hmmm ... that's a good point! I was beginning to think about giving up, since I'm not sure if I will be motivated to write if I think nobody is reading.

100 years is a little over the top; I don't think I really care about what my descendents know about me 100 years from now, but leaving something for my grandkids would be cool! (Hopefully they'll be able to read english :-(
