First Post and I could use some help.

Well this is the official first post from Buffalocentric.  I am sure I will have a lot more to write once I get things the way I like them here, but I could use some help.

If anyone has any graphics skills at all I would love to talk to you about getting a nice header image.   I have a great idea, but I am not a Photoshop or any graphics related programs guru by any means.  So if you can help a guy out I would greatly appreciate.

As for content, if you have any suggestions or comments I would be happy to hear them.   You can find me on Twitter at buffalocentric or email me: buffalocentric at
