Hi everybody.  I’m Allan.  This is the latest incarnation of the Ongoing Letter, my blog to the outside world.

It started in Oct. 1998 as a way of keeping in contact with everyone while I was living and working overseas.  It beat long-distance charges.  Plus, telling each and every person the same news got a little repetitive.  So I came up with the Ongoing Letter, a letter to friends & family that has just kept on going – hence the name.  It’s gone through various changes over the years but remains as a means of saying hello to everyone.

You’re welcome to say hello back!
