This is a test of the new WordPress 5.0 editor.
It’s not exactly intuitive.
This is paragraph two with an image to the right.
Ugh. Had to go back to classic editor until I see some videos or whatever on how to best use the new.

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 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.

University Village at Thousand Oaks (UVTO) residents have put together a book describing their experiences during the Great Depression and World War II. It consists of 50 true stories and carries the title: “Tales of Challenge and Courage.” The book is no longer available for sale.
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,
- MissionTour.org, a virtual tour of the California missions envisioned by Saint Junipero Serra.
- FablesOfAesop.com, a collection of Aesop’s Fables presented in various translations.
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). I also use this as a test site.
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).
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. 🙂
