More Ovaltine Please?

“More Ovaltine please”?  A classic commercial tag line from American television and radio.

More Ovaline?  No.

More pictures and You Tube videos please.  I hear ya.  I’m with ya.  Busy.  Man, am I busy!

All good things take time.  Which is why I give myself some credit for coming so far in only six months.

Six months?  Well, writing consistently for six months.

The actual vision for doing this started about 30 years ago in college.  That’s a tale for another time (maybe).
