For those who occasionally check back here, I am alive. Ive neglected my blog for quite sometime now. It's just that I've been so busy over at Flickr.com/thorpeland. I have gotten much more into photography the past year or so and Flickr is a much better tool for daily posting with photo's. Although I do plan to integrate this blog, my Flickr page and the original thorpeland.com in the coming months. I will be rebuilding my portal!!
