When your website is based on a template, you sometimes get things (like this page) that you’re not sure what to do with. Sure, I could erase or rename the page, but I think it’s just a lot more fun to work with it and, well, mock it. The confusion begins because the page is titled “About.” About what? About the website? If you want to know about the website, you’d better ask Matt, because I don’t know any of the technical details. I just have a neat little interface that I type in that magically posts stuff on the internet. Techies, away! There are, however, things I can tell you about. They follow.
(By the way, I know underlining without links is frowned upon, but the formatting just looks better that way. Forgive?)

About Ex-Racing Greyhounds
Greyhounds are one of the oldest breeds of dogs and can run very, very quickly. (I’ve heard 40 miles per hour.) Although illegal in California, a number of states still practice greyhound racing. Dogs that aren’t fast enough, are injured, or are too old are “retired” from racing. If they’re lucky, they’re adopted. If they’re not, they’re killed. There’s lots of information out there that is more erudite than I, so I’ll leave it at that, but if you’re looking for a nice pet, please take a good look at ex-racers. They’re big, but very sedate and sweet.
