Learn Reiki

The John Harvey Gray Center for Reiki Healing : This site features class information and online registration, a PayPal store and mailing list sign up with Vertical Response.   In the 2019 version, online learning options are included via LifterLMS, Astra theme and Elementor editor.

The site owner has taken over maintaining and developing this site, after ten years of working with me, learning as much as she could.

Guilford Community Church

Guilford Community Church: The Guilford Church has an active music program, youth program and things happening at the church just about every day of the year. They needed a site that could be easily updated and that could provide links to partners in their community outreach efforts. Redone in 2019 in WordPress with theme from ChurchThemes –  with even more capacity for future development, the site has an events calendar, a sermon archive and mp3s of the choir.

Default Country

Wanting to help out U.S. based users of The Events Calendar, I tracked down a place to set the default country.


I changed this:

public function country() {
    return array( '','');

to this:

public function country() {
    return array( '','United States');

United States is preselected, and a selection of states is generated. All other countries are still available, should they be needed.

It appears other defaults could be set as well, but I didn’t try it.

This file will need to be re-modified when updates are applied, as it is not in a location that can be accomplished with a template override.

All Seasons Tree Service

One of my original clients, All Seasons Tree Service, was ready for an update.  We went from a static site of 5 or 6 pages, to a single page design that is responsive, fresh looking and mobile friendly.   When the need for frequent updates is absent, it’s good to find a solution that doesn’t require a database or ongoing updates to software and plugins.
