My First Minion!

I’ve been taking advantage of the weather lately and working on my computer outside. Now, this would be even more lovely if I wasn’t working on my dissertation/exegesis.

Welcome one and all

Well, it’s taken me a while to do something about finally putting together a website. I’ve had the domain name for a year or so with the plan being to put this together and get myself out there, but it has taken me ages to do anything about it. But now it’s up. It even has a custom header. There isn’t much here at the moment, but I’m hoping to add to that, when I can pull myself away from…
