I gave in to the trend. Check my blog at Blogisphere.
Food, Glorious Food
My friends ask for my recipes. The ones I actually write down are here. Most are a little exotic. If you saw the article in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on 18 August 2010 … follow these links to the original recipe for Raspberry Tiramisu.
Microsoft Excel
I have specialized in Excel for about 23 years, all the way back to version 1.0 that came with a run-time version of Windows 2.0. There are three sections in my guide to Excel:
Most of my work the past few yeara has been in Access and SQL. Watch this space for solutions based on Access. I have also been learning how to program the interface in Outlook. Cool stuff!
 
Falkland Islands Philately
Remember when they had a war in the Falklands in 1982? I had already been collecting its stamps for 13 years.  Here is a bunch of information and pictures of Falkland Islands stamps; primarily related to my exhibit of the 1-penny value and study of bisect period from the Queen Victoria period.
 
HTML, HTML5, DHTML, XML, CSS, ASP, .NET, AJAX, LINQ, SQL, Alphabet Soup
Have you gotten into this whole alphabet soup of new web technologies? I have with a vengeance! I am combining all the tools I have learned into one group. Here are my attempts with:
  • JavaScript - I learn at least one new language a year (or so it seems). Here is my first practical use for JavaScript. I wanted the ability for my pages "look" to change somewhat dynamically.
  • hAtom - There is some really cool stuff you can do. I added hslice to the Stamp Expo page so that one can subscribe to the list of societies coming in future years. I plan to add the same thing to Greater Mound City for meeting updates and newsletters.
Geography
I've gotten loopy about Missouri history. In my spare time (?) I am putting together the database for the Missouri Postal History Society. Check how well it's coming. I am also the web-idiot for the Indiana Postal History Society.
Genealogy
One of my more recent pursuits is tracing my family lineage using DNA testing.
Calligraphy
Yes, the name at the top of the page is in my everyday handwriting!
