Hello, and welcome to my blog. I've been keeping a journal here since July, 2003, which is far longer than I ever managed to keep a paper journal. In addition to my personal entries, I may do some genealogy blogging from time to time, to keep track of my family history research. Genealogy entries are public; personal entries are locked to "friends only," but new friends are always welcome. If you don't have a LiveJournal account but would like to read my locked entries (and you have a verifiable presence elsewhere on the web), just reply to this entry using the OpenID option; this will allow me to give you permission to read my locked entries without a LiveJournal account.
Clicking "Here Be Dragons" in the menu above will take you to my recent entries. I haven't been all that active on LJ for the past couple of years (since I went back to school to finish my bachelor's degree in Biology), but I do pop in now and again.
If you're here from somewhere other than LJ and want to ask me a question, please remember to leave some way for me to contact you (an e-mail address or username at an alternate site we both use). Thanks! :)
