GBHeadShot13 - with psalms

Finally, I’ve finished revamping my new ABOUT page.  I’d hoped to have this done & ready to be unveiled with my relatively new blog revamp -more than a month ago- but…ya know… that would have taken a modern miracle.  In any case, here’s my new “about” page posted here for all my new readers and […]
