    This is pretty cool Ron. Impressive amount and variety of content.

    I’m wondering about the actual “blog”…the part where it’s you talking rather than you telling a story. Is that going to be part of the voice on your site?

      Thanks, Kris. I plan to use Musings as my blog but I don’t plan to announce what I had for breakfast every morning. It will be comments about events I attend and such. Other sections will include film, book and other arts reviews. Slowly I will get into it.

    Hey Ron – just took a quick tour of your website, and it looks and feels awesome. I have already added it to my favorites, and if I can remember how, I will add a link to it from my site. In the meantime, I am looking forward to exploring the wealth of material that is obviously here.

    Congrats & Best Regards – Mike

    Your Web site looks GREAT but then I’d expect NOTHING LESS than the best from my friend Ron!!!!
    All the best wishes.

    Hi Ron,

    This is Tiziana. I’m sitting in a cafe in Ashland studying your blog. I think it’s very creative and inspiring, so much so that I’ve decided to use the same format for my blog. I think you have a very interesting life. I’m so glad that you are with my beautiful friend Leola, whose picture graces many of your pages. I send you all my love and I really look forward to meeting you.

      So glad that you are enjoying it, Tiziana. Look forward to meeting you this spring sometime during the Shakespeare festival.

    Wow…this is great Ron, although doesn’t surprise me.

    Congrats! Dar
