Hi.  Nice to meet you.  My name is Owen Allen, and I've got a great and wonderful family.  A beautiful wife, and four completely different and challenging and fun kids.  We are enjoying Summer vacation right now, and the kids seem to enjoy it.  I'm still working, of course.  I work for Microsoft, and have been with the company for about 9 months, now.

This blog may take many forms, I'm not exactly sure what direction it will go.  As I learn the tool, I hope that it will be a great chance to record and share my experiences in many different areas.

Please understand that when I am writing in this blog, I am writing my own thoughts, <Include Appropriate Disclaimer Here/>
