I hope all has been well? Quite a bit has happened since I last posted, way back on January 28th. Back in December an old friend, and former client, approached me with an opportunity. He had started his own successful company many years ago. In an effort to continue what he had built, he had recently sold his company to another organization. The new ownership wanted to expand the existing operation, and was looking for someone with my experience. It was an excellent opportunity.
Most of my time over the last nine weeks have been dedicated to securing the position, training for it, and launching the new effort. Unfortunately, I was not able to give any time to writing during that time. Worse still, I have not been able to read your blogs on a regular basis. Now that the paying gig is moving, I believe I can start spending more time here. Though I may be somewhat sporadic in posting, I promise to do a better job reading your posts. I am grateful for each of you.
Part of the nine weeks was spent in York, PA. Being the history lover that I am, I did take one break and spent an entire Saturday at Gettysburg National Park.

A user who may be in, or will soon visit, a given area can access entries that detail many of that area’s historic sites. Each entry provides the location’s GPS coordinates, street address, hours of operation, fees, story, and much more. I had the privilege of creating many Clio entries. If you want to get a feel for the app, I have provided links to four Clio entries I created for historic sites in the Portsmouth, NH area. There is also a link to an article by Lacie Pierson, of the Huntington Herald Dispatch, that describes Clio’s new features.

Chris DeRose, Founding Rivals: Madison vs. Monroe, The Bill of Rights, and the Election That Saved a Nation (Washington, DC: Regnery Publishing, Inc., 2011).
Before serving the young United States as President, or as Secretary of State, James Madison and James Monroe each eventually served the new republic in Congress. In the nation’s first election under the newly adopted Constitution, these two men faced each other in a contest to represent Virginia’s 5th Congressional District. Madison, author of the Constitution versus Monroe, a soldier hero of the Revolution. Madison, the Federalist versus Monroe, the Anti-Federalist. The Constitution’s survival as a governing document was at stake.
