Just this evening, I decided to change my hosting company. I was getting sick of the slow performance I was getting from GoDaddy. It always seemed like when I wanted to post to my blog, or make updates to the site, I would run into a brick wall. And to make things worse, with Google making the recent announcement that page speed would be a ranking factor, I felt that having a sluggish server was just going to hinder my ranking. So I made the switch. For all of my readers and clients, I apologize if it messed my site up for a couple of days. It will be back up and running by early next week. Have a good day.

The trip to Japan was great. During the time I have been here, I have had numerous photo opportunities (Yes, sometimes I like to dabble in photography). Out of all of the pictures I took on this trip, I think these two are the best.
Now it is your turn to vote. So tell me which one you like. I look forward to hearing your thoughts.

As a designer, I am constantly observing my surroundings, and this is the most interesting city I have ever visited.
The city of Tokyo has some very strong contrasts. One moment you are surrounded by tall buildings, throngs of people, and the “wonderful” smell of city life, and the next minute you are surrounded by serene forests, the smell of flowers, and peaceful shrines.
These are some pictures of our trip. They include views of skyscrapers in the West Shinjuku ward, Nightlife in East Shinjuku ward, a shrine in Yoyogi park, the Great Budha of Kamakura and the bridge leading to the Emperor’s Palace. Please enjoy them. I will be posting more as the trip continues.

The nice weather has arrived in Missouri. Give it time, the procrastination will begin. The best way to stifle this problem is to allocate time to slack off and time to work. Since I have a full time job, and I freelance, I have set myself a very strict schedule.
I have set times to check email, sit and design, make client phone calls, and complete administrative stuff (billing clients and paying my personal bills). Then there is the time for my wife and me. Which is why I need to pry myself away from my computer, and go enjoy the weather with her on the back patio.
