My WordPress training buddy, Bob Dunn, will be rocking PDX at the next WordPress Meetup on April 21, 2014. He will be talking about membership sites with WordPress, a hot topic. I'm sure this event is going to fill up fast, so hurry to get your RSVP in now.

I see what you mean, +Patrick Moore. It might be weird for a bit but it would also be unfair (and typecasty) to keep him as his character when he has the chance to move on from that. I imagine it would be weird in the same way that it's weird whenever Google expands its services into areas that people didn't think they would.

The WordPress.org profiles, the user member profiles for the WordPress Community on WordPress.org for the forum, Make WordPress, WordPress Codex, and WordPress Plugin and Theme directories, have been a work in progress for redesign for the past couple of years and a big push to redesign them and complete the project is on.

Little Luke uses his super powers on some cardboard in our driveway. I told him he is the Super Hero against the evil Cardboard Monsters that proliferate our world. He swung around in his star blanket cape and jumped on the boxes with glee.

I love having my friends' kids visit. I so get to corrupt them.

LOL! That's my job. I taught him how to ride a bike last year. I also picked up a new dining table and chairs from Ikea. He helped me build the chairs. I gave him one of the allen wrenches as a souvenir. He held it out in his two hands with pride and announced, "My very first real tool. I'll remember this forever."

I love these moments almost as much as I do handing him back to his mother. :D
