I'm going to blog again at least once per day in 2016. I may get behind, but I'll have notes that I want to shape into a blog post and will finish them out when I get the chance. That's my only New Year's Resolution.

In the next month or two, Dave Wedzik and I plan to begin selling our book, Lowest Score Wins, via the website http://lowestscorewins.com/. We'll have two products (a paperback and a hardcover), so we want a little store that integrates with PayPal (preferably) to handle sales with shipping to the U.S., Canada, and other countries […]
