Tweaking Continues…

OK, so day two (or three?) of having Blogger for the blog, and I’m likin’ it. Got inspired to transfer last year’s worth of entries over. Doesn’t take long, it’s just really tedious work. So, I’m probably not going to be in a big rush to finish.

The new blog address is:

For some reason, the actual name “WhenEFTalks” seems to be taken. I halfway think I’ve probably got it taken somewhere, but I can’t for the life of me figure it out.

I’m also apparently able to integrate the Blogger blog into my regular website, so that visitors there will continue to see it as as seamless thing. It will look like this.

Not bad.

While I’ve been at it, I’ve also been doing some other cleaning up of the website, which was probably long overdue…changed out some sidebar pics, fixed some other pages, etc, etc….

Bottom line: routine maintenance still underway….stay tuned….EF

(BTW: Never did get to post here about the Connections Show tonight. Posted about it on Facebook and the Connections website. Full info is here. Come see us if you can….)

Previously, he was pastor at Northaven UMC in Dallas for seventeen years. Eric loves to write on topics of spirituality, social justice, music/art and politics. The entries on this blog reflect that diversity of interests. His passion for social justice goes beyond mere words. He’s been arrested at the White House, defending immigrants and “The Dreamers,” and he’s officiated at same sex weddings in his churches, in defiance of what some believe is Methodist teaching. Eric is an avid blogger and published author, and 2017 recipient of the prestigeous Kuchling Humanitarian Award from Dallas’ Black Tie Dinner. (Human Rights Campaign) Eric has led or co-led hundreds of persons on mission trips around the globe, to places such as Mexico, Haiti, Russia, and Nepal. He has worked with lay persons to build ten homes, and one Community Center, in partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Dallas. He’s a popular preacher, and often tackles challenging issues of social justice in his writings and sermons. His wife, Judge Dennise Garcia, is a State District Judge for Dallas, County. As judge of the 303rd Family District Court, she consistently gets high ratings from area lawyers, and was named “best judge” by The Dallas Observer. First elected in 2004, she was the first Latina ever elected to a county-wide bench in Dallas County, and is currently the longest service district judge in that district. She was re-elected for a fourth term in 2018. They have the world’s best daughter, Maria, and an incredible dog, Daisy.

One thought on “Tweaking Continues…

  1. The blog is looking good. I like blogspot because I don't have to worry about the software. I can upload photos easily. I can embed video easily. I don't have to worry about the nuts and bolts. I can focus on writing.
