Google wins! I give up!

Anyone remember "Google Apps for Domains?" I do, because my primary account has been on one for years and on the whole it hasn't been much of an issue, until recently.

I just recently celebrated a birthday and with it I did a tech refresh. In the process I hit far too many "gotchas," and surprises that I'm tired of working around and services that I just can't access. So I've pulled the trigger and started the migration.

For those that contact me via email or offline, don't worry I'm not shutting off anything there. Just be aware that a shift is coming and other than maybe updating my contact info it shouldn't be too painful.

Other social media sites - this shouldn't impact them at all.

Here though, I can't just lift everything and drop it down at my new place so while this profile will continue to exist it will no longer be updated after this post (other than for migration work). All the communities, pages, collections, I'll either be moving them over or retire them as appropriate.

I know for some this may seem extreme, and it is on some levels, but in the long run it'll make my life way more simpler.

Thanks for understanding and be sure to circle my new profile (the header and profile pic will look awfully familiar) at

There's just seven days to go until I spend the night walking beside a woman who is an inspiration to many - my wife. She is just one of the reasons I'm participating in the Relay for Life, I've also lost a number of family members to the disease, even one is just too many.

I need your help to reach my fundraising goal. If you can spare a few dollars to help I would greatly appreciate it.

Just click through the link below and you can read a bit more about why I'm doing this and contribute.

For those that can't contribute, do me a favor and share this post so that others can be made aware.

Thanks - I truly appreciate all the help.

I’ve written in the past about the simple fact that as members of Freemasonry we should spend time educating ourselves and one of the best ways to do that is by reading. I’ll be the first to admit it, I spend a lot of hours in front of a computer screen,…

No, we’re not taking a left turn here, but I thought it was time to start looking at digital tools that could be used to help us as Freemasons. There are plenty of them out there but I thought I would start with one that I think has a lot of uses,…

There is a lot to learn when you become a Freemason, there are signs and symbols, methods of recognition, and more that a few words that have be memorized. As a new member you may be directed to an older member of the Lodge, a mentor, or the Lodge…
