Happy Thanksgiving

A day off work with parades and football and food and family... I mean really, what is not to be thankful for; it doesn't get much better  than this.

I am thankful for what I am and for what I have. I may not deserve all that I have and I may have lucked into much of my good fortune, but I recognize that I do have more than my fair share of happiness and prosperity.

Truckcast #115: Noise Complaints

Now that arohen.com is once again using a paid hosting service we can get back to making Truckcast podcasts. You know you missed them. Anyway, this one is a bit of this and a bit of that, all cobbled together from some of the bits and bites I've accumulated over the last year. Sit back and have a listen.

Trying WordPress Again

new host, new wordpress blog, new headaches

Hello world!

I'm trying this whole WordPress thing, again. This time with a managed plan from Bluehost. Welcome back to arohen.com, once again using WordPress, only this time on Bluehost. This is my first post, hopefully of many. Now, let's get this place cleaned up and put back together.
