Drupal Development in a Browser

I teach people how to build websites in Drupal (https://drupal.org) about 1/2 my working life. (See Most Comprehensive Drupal Course and 3,000,000 Views)

I've used a tool from Acquia (https://acquia.com) for almost 10 years now.  They finally EOL'd it last summer and it stopped working this week.  

Follow Up to Jane Marczewski's Passing

If you followed her story, you know she was a devout follower of Jesus.  He gave her strength and joy - a sentiment echoed in her blog over and over.

The memorial service was held at the church she grew up in - Cornerstone Church in Heath OH.

A Remarkable Person

Do you know who Jane Marczewski was? She died this week at the age of 31. You might remember her if you re-watch her audition on America's got Talent.

What I've Learned After 160,000 Miles On A Bike

Last Friday morning I decided to ride to Nashville, TN for lunch.  It's 260 miles so I made it right around 1:00 pm.  I love Nashville and the ride there and back on the coutry roads was incredibly relaxing.

On my way back I added up the miles I’ve ridden on a motorcycle… around 160,000 (about 260,000 km). Not a lot by some standards but a ton more than people who buy a bike and leave it in their garage.

Tesla Model Y Test Drive

So... Tesla Cincinnati offered a new Model Y for an extended test drive over the Thanksgiving holiday.  Seriously - this was so cool. :)

Most Comprehensive Drupal Course I’ve Ever Created

Whew!  I just finished recording the most comprehensive Drupal Explained course I've ever made.  It's a "beginner's" introduction to Drupal 9 - 81 videos in all.  I'm pretty excited about it.  You'll be able to take the course at OSTraining.com.

Easter 2020 - There Is Hope

If you've read any part of my blog, you probably already know that I'm a Christian and that I go to church.  With everything going on this year (2020), we obviously couldn't go to church and meet as we normally would on Easter Sunday.

One Minute Workbench Build

This is in the "just for my sanity" department.  I've been getting into woodworking as a hobby and "fun" thing to do.  Creating this workbench is outside the realm of my normal work life, so needless to say, I'm having fun!

Lessons in Leadership - Dearborn County Chamber Event

I’m at the spring “Get Energized” event for the Dearborn County Chamber of Commerce (that’s Indiana... not Michigan).  It could be entitled “Lessons in Leadership”.
