I'm a retired software designer/developer. I spend my time traveling, writing and doing freelance Web design and development.

I received a degree in psychology, with a minor in philosophy and took many courses in religion. My intent was to be a clinical psychologist, but life took me in another direction and I ended up working in the technology field for 27 years. Now that I'm retired I am able to spend more time pursuing my varied interests including technology, science, travel, politics, health, pets, psychology, religion, and spiritual development - and of course writing about these things.

      I've noticed that when I do a Google search that my Hubs show up in the search results without any date.  I just made a change to one of my articles "What is Dave Chappelle Doing These Days".  I made sure that it was re-indexed by Google by doing a fetch in Webmaster...

      For the last two days, my page views are down, and my page view numbers don't correspond at all with each other - when I look at the counts on My Earnings and at the top of the stats section in the hub itself, they are much lower than the numbers reported individually for various sources.  For...

      Poll capsule may not be working properly

      5 years ago

      I have poll capsules in two of my hubs that don't seem to be working properly.  They don't seem to give the user a chance to answer, but instead show what has already been answered.  I'm not sure if there is a flag set once you've answered the question so that you can't answer it again,...

      Special characters in tags

      6 years ago

      I just wrote a hub about a new web series called H+.  I don't know how to tag this appropriately, since the name of the show has the + sign in it, and tags don't accept special characters.  How can I tag this so that is will be picked up in search engines appropriately?

      Are we a split nation politically, or does it merely seem so because of the media?It seems as if today's politics are so polarized that the country takes completely opposing views on which direction we should be heading.  Is this true, or is it an illusion promoted by the liberal and...
