Welcome to

Since "retirement" I have been busier than I have ever been. I call it retirement, because in 2009 I left the organization that I had built over a fifteen year period; one that had provided a steady income, although tentative at times. My intent was to simplify my life. Instead, I started a new business, wrote books, developed software and websites, produced videos, and generally created a whole new set of complications. This website contains some of the projects that have kept me busy since then. I hope that you might find something here that interests you. -- Lawrence V. Drake
