Since embarking on a new endeavor, a change of title is in order. Why concatenate (the title is spelled phonetically and a play on yours truly’s name)? Well, this blog seeks to link things together. In my personal case, linking art and a life spent in technology. We use concatenation in computing all the time; […]

Wow, is it already November? Where in the world has the time gone? It seems like yesterday since I last posted but it’s been months. Hopefully, Blogging 101 will inspire all of us to be more intentional in our posting.  Awhile ago I posted this on my About page and so for this first day […]

“You need a time out!” shouts the mother to the toddler with the temper tantrum. “TIME OUT!” calls the coach as he gathers his players into a huddle to discuss the next play. “I need time out of this rat race,” laments the single parent with three kids and two jobs. What does “time out” mean […]

They fit my lifestyle, they are fun, they last a LONG time and, they have personality. Yes, I said they have personality. […]

While most of these offer tips on horse care, training, and farm management, occasionally there is a post that is horse related but not typical. Horse Collaborative had one such post listed under their “western” category although […]
