Dec 6 - These days, I am relaunching mailing lists—to give them a new basis of positivity. Here's the new Lua list. Quite certainly more examples will follow. I am sure God will see to it that the new lists get off the ground—why else would he stir them up in the first place?

with great software. Yummie.

Sep 29 - Major local advertising campaign planned! More soon.
