This page. At onetime it was hosted at blogger just for a simple... whats going on online log. After that it turned into a website for my write in campaign for political office.
It sat in limbo for years until recently and is this current site now.
Site was created through Linux Command line, mostly with Nano but a little in vi. Using the bootstrap CSS/JS framework. PHP for the timestamp and Contact information.
Started in 2001 by "Bob" as a RSS Feed agrigator. Site was designed by "Bob" and "Gerry" with myself managing the webserver. In 2020 I took over the site soley when Bob and Gerry retired. In 2020 and 2021 Much of the back end of the website was rewritten and site moved to DigitalOcean with more redundancy.

I have been in the business of IT since the late 1990's with some breaks to look into other possible options.
