It's raining outside because Hurricane Ike (now downgraded to Tropical Storm Ike) is barreling its way into Oklahoma as I type.  We are getting lots of rain here in Tulsa, Oklahoma.

The coverage by the media of the presidential campaign has been nothing short of despicable. They are in a tizzy over Sarah Palin's setting a trend with her eye glasses.  (I frankly have to admit that I like them.) They have replayed the jokes by a late night comedian making fun of Trig, Sarah Pa...

I had a very pleasant experience at a closing in Poteau last week. The buyers were from Minnesota and after four months of looking, we found the perfect house on 15 acres in Wister, Oklahoma.  There's a view of a mountain off every porch in all four directions.  It's an awesome property.  The hou...

I grew up in the Town of Southeast in Putnam County.  It was called Southeast because it was the southeast township in the Philips Patent in New York State.  We lived about two miles from the little village of Brewster, which was on the other side of Marvin's Mountain from our house.  When we wal...

The folks at Retaggr read my previous blog and responded immediately to my complaint.   They have repaired the coding problem to my satisfaction.  I have now inserted the new code back into my website.  The interactive maps are working again alongside the tagging.
