Welcome to logn

Jason Healy's little corner of the internet.

Thanks for visiting my site! I got this domain way back when I graduated from college. It started out as a spot to keep all my geeky projects. Now, my life is focused on my wife and four wonderful children, so you'll note that most of the content is about them. Please feel free to navigate the menus above for the major sections of the site, or read on for some recent blog postings.

The Season of Legos

Legos. Yes, sometimes I might curse them under my breath when I step on an errant piece. But otherwise, they are the stuff of dreams in our house. I don't think I played with Legos very much when I was little, but my brother definitely did. He ...
