My Geek

Charles is my personal assistant, my photographer, my early morning barista, my web designer, oh yeah, he is also my husband. His began his career in computer technology in 1969 (I guess that makes him a Primitive Geek). Yeah, he is old and rusty too, just like everything else I collect. Over the years he has designed several web sites and blogs for us. I’ll let him tell you more, but beware, he speaks a different language, so I may have to translate before I publish this page.


I prefer writing to web designing, so I have gravitated towards web-based tools that permit me to easily create a pleasing web presentation, with ease of content creation. A few months ago I retired from my job as an IT Director. So now all I have is my own stuff, which is also old, like me. My desktop is an 8-year old 27-inch iMac. My portable is 2012 MacBook Pro. Most of my work is evolving to web-based applications and storage, so who know what the future holds, when this old gear gives up the ghost.

All of our sites are built on WordPress and professional themes. My photo needs are simple. I opt for convenience over precision, so most shots are from my iPhone because it is seconds away. Since one of my other passions is Food Photography, I have my eye on a Canon DSLR. For photo manipulation I use Photoshop and Lightroom CC.

Since I have retired I do most of my writing at the gym, my favorite coffee shop, or Suzanne’s Cottage, where she let’s me inhabit the “Crow’s Nest” overlooking Flannagan Pond. It’s a tough life, but someone has to do it.

When I am not being Suzanne’s IT Department, I may be doing CrossFit, Olympic Weightlifting, or writing in my own blogs.

Since this site is constantly evolving, there are a lot of features that will be coming soon, including subscription capability and social media feeds. My boss is a tyrant and she has a growing Honey-Do list that terrifies me.
