Roscoe's Story


Is it time for me to move away from Wordpress?


Perhaps. At least, that's a question I find myself toying with these days.

I own the domain that currently directs to my website that uses as its CMS. I intend to hold onto that domain (had it for several years and kinda like it) but, honestly, I'm getting tired of wrestling with Wordpress on a daily basis.

I do intend to continue blogging. Perhaps pointing my domain to something simpler and more basic like this Roscoe's Notebook blog would satisfy me. Hmm... I wonder.

The adventure continues.

Yes, I have.


Earlier this afternoon she and I walked over to our polling place, the neighborhood Elementary School, and we voted.

Whatever happens next as a result of these elections, I can watch with a certain sense of calm, knowing I've done all I can do to bring about the best outcome possible.

And the adventure continues.
