Hello World!

Hey there! Oh yeah… I’m still around. I’ve just been hibernating… um, for the Summer. Yeah, that’s it! *Attempts to change the subject* I hope you like the new site design. *PAY NO ATTENTION TO THE MAN BEHIND THE CURTAIN! =D So, there have been many times when I thought I’d write about some of the goings on around here, but found myself doing other things and actively avoiding ye’olde blog. I realize it’s been […]

Breaking up

August 26, 2011 at 9:58 pm

I thought I was going to like this WordPress theme; It seemed so promising, so attractive even. But once I got under the hood and started tweaking, it made me unhappy. What really cheeses me off is that I actually paid money for it. Not a lot of money, mind you, but now I’m $30 poorer and I still don’t have a theme that I like enough to customize. :( So I’m breaking up with […]

The End of an Era: Site Updates!

July 31, 2011 at 5:39 pm

Welcome to our new site! Hopefully, it doesn’t seem new (barring the theme change) and the switchover was seamless to your RSS feeds (fingers crossed)! Most of the changes have occurred under the hood, as we’ve migrated the entire site to a new web host. Oxygenvalve will still work since I’m paid up on the domain for the next 3 years, but the new domain name, La Vida Loftus, is how we will refer to […]

So Mike and I have been talking about this URL… oxygenvalve.com was something we came up with a million years ago when we were dating. It’s hard to believe, but that was over 8 years ago. OK, I just checked, and this domain was registered 11 years and 19 days ago!!! Based on that, this site is a dinosaur in internet years. It’s only been since 2003 that I have been actively blogging. And recently, […]

A Warm Welcome (and OV is 10!)

April 19, 2010 at 3:14 pm

Oxygenvalve has undergone MANY changes since its inception way back in 2000… Holy crap, it’s been that long? I just checked the anniversary date and it’s April 13, 2000. Happy 10th birthday Oxygenvalve!! (That’s ancient in web years!) Mike and I arbitrarily came up with the name based on the lyrics of a song we liked, and purchased the domain to use as a joint plot of web space — long before we even talked […]
