Damn you, Google, Facebook, SharePoint, and all the rest of you web services. Why do you never cease to insist on changing your interface and the tools you offer? Why must I continually adapt to your every whim?
I go away for a few months (a year?) of non-blogging and I'm brow beaten by Blogspot to change my blog. Leave me alone.
Upham Manor has been home to my family for three generations, going back to my maternal grandfather. I am the current Lord of Upham and live there with my wife Janet and our son Benjamin and our twin sons Daniel and Jesse.
The grounds of the manor include the Mead Hall, a small piazza, the gardens, the courtyard, and a shrine. (Every estate needs a shrine.)
Not bad for a sixteenth of an acre of land, eh?
If you would not be forgotten As soon as you are dead and rotten, Either write things worth worth the reading, Or do things worth the writing. -Benjamin Franklin
There is little better in life than hosting friends & family in the parlor or Mead Hall at Upham Manor. A fine meal, good wine, warm fire, and stimulating conversation amongst thoughtful people are one of the things in life I relish most.
