About Pete

This is my blog, my way. There's a bit of everything in it, most of which I find interesting one way or another. I always keep my eye on gadgets, technology, software, site scripts, web site designs, templates, wordpress themes, wordpress in general, along with a whole barrage of other things we find here on the internet. UPDATE: My life has changed in so many ways since beginning this blog seemingly so many years ago. A majority of the history here is in technology (pre-2014) and now it's more about life. A more focused journey of myself and the ride we're all on. So if you like a little bit of this and that, then hopefully you'll enjoy the new focus here at my blog. :-)
