About Dan Antion
“Husband, father, woodworker, cyclist, photographer, geek – oh wait, I’m writing this like I only have 140 characters. I am all those things, and more, and all of these passions present me with opportunities to observe, and think about things that I can’t write about in other places.”
He started his blog No Facilities to “catch the stuff that falls out, overflows and just plain doesn’t fit the other containers in my life.” He associates the blog “with people, towns, countries and situations which can be described by a lack of resources, attention to opportunity or those situations where the status quo just doesn’t include everyone.”
His family, a dog Maddie and two cats, Mimi and Mumu are featured in his blog from time to time. His daughter shares his love of woodworking, hiking and photography. Maddie keeps Dan busy, begging to play and take walks. Mimi and Mumu inspect Dan’s wood working projects, or sneak around in his home office. Dan’s lovely wife, a bit shy to photograph, is a strong behind-the–scenes support of Dan and his daughter’s projects, and adventurous outdoor activities.
Don’t miss Dan’s entertaining, and interesting weekly posts, One-Liner Wednesday, Thursday Doors, and Stream of Consciousness Saturday. Check out Maddie and Mimi’s recent great adventure. They went to London with Dan in Teagan Geneviene’s blog serial, Get Caught Reading, https://teagansbooks.com, a “zany and bizarre story encouraging people of all ages to read.” The intent was to catch Chris Graham, The Story Reading Ape reading, https://thestoryreadingapeblog.com. Other elite bloggers with their pets joined together on this mission and yes, after some harrowing escapades they finally caught the ape reading.
Dan the Techno-Geek
Not only do you get technical details on Dan’s woodworking projects posts, but Dan also has another blog site, Information Services, full of technical work-related things. “Observations, ideas, things I’ve learned the hard way, things I’ve learned from others, and things that drive me crazy about Information Management.” He “spent most of a 35+year career working with structured data in the orderly realm of systems development and database management.”
