In the Beginning...

True, other literary works, much richer in value, content and depth have begun with the same words. I just wanted to start my official blog with something familiar so there you have it. "In the beginning..." This isn't as much an official blog entry as it is a test to  try out the software (Sitemason 6.0) and see how it looks on the site. I'm going to post this but just think of this as the pre-show "sound-check." You showed up early for the show and there are grungy looking folks running around, playing guitar rifts and yelling "Check 1-2, check 1-2" in the microphone. Eager fans are starting to show up around you, staking their claim for some space so they can enjoy the real show later. Right now, it's set-up time and the show is some time away. Go get in the beer line and get familiar with the settings. Remember, in the unlikely event of an emergency you may exit this blog by clicking on the backspace or typing something, really anything, in what we call the "web address" space.
