Welcome To The
First Year Catbird, Washington DC

I am in the process of reconstructing my website, so pardon the pixel dust as it were. 

The newest addition to my website is from my trip to Sweden in May 2012.  Follow the link on the left.  I have posted my travel recollections and photos from the trip.  And for the first time - for me - I have also included videos I took.

I have undertaken this seemingly endless endeavor mostly because I want to be able to create and display web photo albums that are accessible to anyone with an internet connection and at a URL that is not associated with any commercial site, such as Picasa or Flicker.  I'm funny that way.

So while I have been thinking of doing this for quite a while now, after all it is on my "Retirement To Do" list, I finally got truly motivated by our "not so recent" trip to Sweden and by telling folks "Oh, I'll have photos to share shortly", with the hope of making that happen sometime before the holidays of this year.

But it has not been a straight line, simple task to do this.  Aside from the fact that I have "wasted" time on other things, some reasons why this has become seemingly endless (it is not finished yet) is that I am trying out new web tools; both for creating photo albums and for website design.  A lot of trial and error involved.

But, "Ta Da", here is the first iteration, Version 0.001.  On the left there is a link to take you to my travel journal and photos from our June 2011 trip to Sweden. Note that this is still a work in progress and only some of our photos are posted. More to come.  Maybe before the New Year.

Please let me know if you have any problems.
