Test Aesop Page

An Old Man met Death and asked for a reprieve. Death said no as he had given the Old Man many hints about what was coming to him.

Be prepared. One never knows when Death will show up.

42

42 is a movie about the late 1940s in America when Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in major league baseball. It is set for release on Friday April 12th, 2013; one week from now. I strongly recommend seeing the movie as it is excellent.

In the classic “who you know” situation, a group of people in the community where I live were invited to a pre-release screening of the movie arranged by the mother of the president of Legendary studios, the producer of the movie. I was fortunate to be part of the group.

Hello Everybody!

Welcome to e-olio. This is a new experiment for me. In the past I’ve built several single-purpose sites…

  • Computer Knowledge with tutorials and general information (a bit stale right now),
  • Tom’s Domain, a personal website,
  • FILext, a collection of file extensions and programs that use them — since sold to Uniblue,
  • and MissionTour.org, a virtual tour of the California missions envisioned by Blessed Junipero Serra.
    (This is the site I’m currently working on the most.)

So, why a new site? I’m always trying to learn different things. A site full of miscellaneous information allows me to do that. On one page I can put affiliate link information and on another some math formula and yet another a clever video I may have seen. There is little limit to the possibilities (subject to a “G” rating).

Why “olio”? No reason other than it’s a word I discovered a long time ago in another life writing newsletters and now I find it in crossword puzzles. It means a miscellaneous collection and so fits quite nicely here. Just don’t confuse it with oleo which is margarine (fake butter).Smile

The site may be sparse for a little while as I have many projects and irons in the fire but a little bit at a time things will start to appear.

Have fun.
