Dear friends and family and all such as stop by to look at pictures here from time to time. Due to the fact that I have a number of applications going out these next few months to universities and places of employment I have decided to lock up access, so far as I am able, to as much of my personal information as exists on the internet. There is no particular concern or problem. I just don't want potential professors or employers google-ing my name and then scrolling through my blog posts or facebook page.
I have sent an email to as many of you as I have in my address book, letting you know that you can email me to request access to the blog. Sorry for the additional inconvenience.
