Trumping Right Along -Journal

9/8/16 It’s been an interesting month on a personal level. I wrote a couple weeks ago about our trip to Pennsylvania for my 50th high school reunion, and since then we’ve visited my wife’s family in New York over the Labor Day weekend. Two red-eye trips in the same month is enough. In other news,

Our main products have been educational posters for music, though we’ve done books, calendars, and most recently, my novels. Below are images of many of our products. To be taken to the site for

The Computicator

Many years ago, at least a decade before anyone ever heard of the term “blogger,” I coined the term “computicator” as a job description for a character in one of my stories, combining the words “computer” with “communicator.” It seems to me a more accurate and comprehensive term for what I’ll be doing than blogger.
