Waiting for Election Results

The election is over. All we can do is wait for the counting complete. I hope enough people who see just how terrible this failure of a human being, Donald Trump, is went to the polls and voted. The future of our country depends on it.

Nevertheless, I have to get a few things off my chest. This morning, I considered writing a post about how horrible and dangerous the actions and words of Donald Trump are and how they undermine trust in one of the most sacred aspects of American democracy, the electoral process. It is through our right to vote for our representatives in government that our democracy functions. Without trust in that process, our democracy and our country fail.

Vote 2020

If you live in the United States of America, please vote! Election Day is Tuesday, November 3rd.

A New Hugo-Based Blog

In my previous post I talked a little about why and how I started this blog. Here I want to present my experience with Hugo and what I like about it.


Creating a blog is hard. I admire those who are able to design their own and write regular posts, so much so that I’m trying again to create my own blog. I started this blog late in 2015. After writing a few posts, I became discouraged. I didn’t like the way it looked, the tools often broke, and I didn’t have a clear idea of what I wanted to write, or why I was blogging.
