ushering in a new era

Wow! It's February 9th, 2006 and Brian and I are finally going live with a blog. Took us long enough, eh?! I'll chalk this one up to finally deciding on a domain name. My brother, Jonathan, thinks 'Vandopoly' is...funny, to say the least. I think it's catchy!

The name came about when I was talking to a good friend, Robbin, about returning for the 2006 dragon boat season. I told her that I wasn't sure if I wanted to paddle because we have so many other commitments and, besides, we have to start the 'Vandopoly' soon. Then Kim, our Van Dop cousin, got a hold of it and since the 3 of us are on the same dragon boat team, we just started calling ourselves the Vandopoly.

So, in the truest sense, I guess Vandopoly refers to me, Brian and Kim. However, in this world of extensible languages, I think Vandopoly can be extended to all things Van Dop...
