About Me

I wanted to just say hi and introduce myself and my blog page to you. My name Richard Pryor Jr. and I am a 1989 graduate of Clearview High School. You might remember my parents Dick and Barb Pryor who ran Accent Kitchen and Bath on Elyria Avenue until 1993. I look back often on my childhood years and remember so many fond memories of Lorain.

Since then I have been living in the Cleveland area, Parma to be specific where I am married to a wonderful nurse and my best friend Lisa. We have two dogs Eddie the boxer and Billy our black pug. They were the inspiration for my wood burning site.

Since I was laid off in August of 2008 I have been on a journey of renewal trying to find ways to become as productive as possible. I set my sights on a career in the IT field working with security. In recent months web site design using Google Blogger and other research tools have allowed me to design this site from scratch.  I have been attending Bryant & Stratton College in Parma since January of 2010. I can proudly say that I graduated in August of 2011 with a 3.95 GPA..

Along the journey I had to take an English composition course where I discovered my love of writing. I have been writing ever since. You will find my blog to be mostly a reflection of life as seen through my eyes. I do post lots of information about computers and how they work. I try to give information in a way that will not intimidate the reader but empower them. I suppose I am mostly a Google advocate trying to help spread information about all of their free products and how they work.

I also try to offer my two cents about current events. It is common for me to write when I am inspired by a meaningful event. I would like to thank Mr. Tom Skoch for allowing my page to be seen on The Morning Journal Web Site. I look forward to hearing from anyone who might have a question or comment.
