My first blog (This is only a test)

The following bit of literary output is solely for the purpose of seeing how this whole AR Blog thing works and looks when posted.

There may be a few feeble attempts before I get my blog legs steady beneath me. I am somewhat technology averse, so when faced with the myriad options within AR, my initial instinct is to go outside and work in the garden. Deer and various carrot thieving rodents I can deal with. Scribe fire, channels, categories, hyper-local, outside blogs, tags...makes a man (at least me) want to sit on a rock wall and scowl at chipmunks.

This is in no way indicative of my writing skills (or lack thereof). This will probably be followed by an attempt at writing something using Scribe fire, to see how that works as well. Within that, I will attempt such amazing feats as embedding links and toying with fonts and colors. This could all go horribly wrong and fail miserably, in which case no one would know but me. So without further delay....i post. Please enjoy the picture of Tatonka below, while I open up Scribe fire for test blog part 2. If there is a delay between these tests I'm probably in the garden......

Pretty good for a novice in AR.  Come on in and get your feet wet most agents don't bite...

You did just fine, and I agree, most of us don't bit here, and any who do we disregard. There is no room for pettiness or rudeness in the Rain.

I should fly into Texas just for the weekend to do some tax-free shopping! Knowing California, though, they'd charge me tax when I got back.

Happy Thursday!

Russel, I forgot about this first try blog.

I think the airfare may negate any tax savings, unless you pland on a rather large spree.
