About Me

The Out Campaign: Scarlet Letter of Atheism

Let’s see.  I’m a 40ish year old living in Willoughby, OH.  I’m married and have two daughters and three step-sons.

I’m not a prolific blogger.  I just like to jot stuff down as it comes to me.  I enjoy engaging in conversations with others who can teach me things, and you can get me to talk to you about anything from politics to religion to tech of all kinds.

I’m a computer enthusiast.  I’ve been in Windows systems since 1991 when they were rolling out Windows 3.0.  I run a Macbook Pro now that runs the latest build of OS X Leopard.

I’m a runner and cyclist. I’ve run races including 5k, 10k, Half Marathon, and Marathon. I’ve also done the Mobius 50k trail race. I’m fairly new to cycling, but I did the Bike MS Pedal to the Point in 2014.

I’m also addicted to podcasts.  Due to the time I spend on the roads, between cycling and running, it’s a great way to keep up on news and other topics of interest. Some of my favorites are Tech News Today, NPR, The Humanist Hour, Skeptics Guide to the Universe, and many others.

  1. Greetings! And welcome to the blogosphere. Just wanted to say hi, since we share a blog name. I’ve also got a blog called The Daily Upload, hosted over on Blogger. Good choice for a name. I’m also glad to see that you’re started to appreciate the Mac as well. Like you, I’ve got lots of computers, but I switched to Macs pretty much full time a few years ago and I”ve never regretted it. And now that Macs can run Windows so nicely, there’s really no reason not to switch over completely.

  2. Dave, thanks for posting a comment. Our common blog name is even more funny than you think. I just moved to wordpress a couple of days ago. I was on blogger and my blog address was dailyupload.blogspot.com. I never thought to check for *the*dailyupload.blogspot.com.

    Yes, I’ve been in Windows for so long and was so completely ignorant of the Mac OS, that I was reluctant to buy Mac. I just decided it was time. I figured if I can keep a PC running despite the fact that they run Windows, I should be able to handle a Mac.
