I was privileged to grow up with a mother who not only was always making things from scratch, but also had a herb garden wherever she lived. When I went to visit her, the ritual was to go and walk through her herb garden first, and smelling all the wonderful fragrances as she crushed the leaves.

Building a new website

Having spent 28 years in various positions in the IT world, including as an IT programmer, one would think that I would have a really good modern website. Not so!
