Greg Johnson – Monthly Update 201807


Personal Update 201807 | 31 Jul 2018 | Tuesday


I hope you’re doing well. Thanks for taking a moment to read my latest update.


I’ve been using a new camera lately and it seems to be performing well. I’ve posted some photos from a recent hike on the Squire Point trail. I hope to get more photos uploaded soon.


During the 4th of July week, we were able to visit Lake Tahoe. At the top of this page is a sunset photo from July 5. I hope to upload more Lake Tahoe photos soon. This month I created two Lake Tahoe websites: offers remote tech support to people visiting the area, and offers information about local attractions.


This month I had a customer wanting help with creating a website for selling a specific breed of versatile hunting dog. Something I do when creating a website for someone is to create companion magnet sites (typically at no cost to them) that help draw in and direct additional traffic for their site. So, I created as an online guide to hunting dogs and other dog breeds. One of the nice features of the site is that as dog breeds are featured, high quality identification photos are included on the information page for each breed.


Periodically, cities are pressured by residents to address deer and other wildlife populations that find their way into residential and urban settings. Deer tend to eat flowers and other landscaping which upsets people. When people are upset, they want to grab high powered rifles and start shooting deer. Yet, more effective non-lethal long-term solutions exist. Because Iowa City is currently considering paying sharpshooters to kill deer, I’ve written an article to address the topic: “Effective and Economical Municipal Wildlife Management.”


Many thanks to all of you who keep in touch and provide support for the work I do.
