The Sniffle Valve website switcheroo

The Sniffle Valve Rebuild Let me begin by stating that Sniffle Valve has not abandoned the Dynamik Website Builder (DWB) child theme for the Genesis Framework and the Beaver Builder (BB) plugin, nor has their capability and usefulness diminished in my view in any way whatsoever.

Attend a WordCamp if you have the chance

I attended my very first WordCamp last weekend, May 28th and 29th here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. The venue was Fort Calgary, which I have to admit, I had never visited in the more than 15 years that I have lived in the city. A perfect place for it. Great meeting rooms, a theater for

This is Sniffle Valve – why not?

Finally, after updating all the pages and posts with the new set up, the blog is now ready for action. I out-smarted myself just a little bit with using Beaver Builder and Genesis Dambuster (GDB) for everything. It was all working just marvelously until the time came to set up the blog section.

My first computer

35 years ago, this July, I bought my first computer. The Radio Shack TRS-80 PC-1 Pocket Computer. Don’t laugh. It had BASIC and I wrote my very first program of any kind on it, one which became an integral part of the retail and wholesale agricultural fertilizer / chemical dealership that I owned at the
