I’m starting to build a presence on Patreon — a website used by content creators like musicians, artists, and video producers as a way for fans to financially support their work. It’s also a great way for people to subscribe to premium services. I’ve configured some service levels relevant to my existing computer customers. Learn more by visiting Patreon.com/resourcesforlife

The podcast has been going well. Since last month, I’ve uploaded episodes 32 – 38 on variety of topics. You can find those episodes and other content on the What’s New page of the Resources For Life website. [View]

BACKGROUND — In April, I created a new podcast for those who prefer listening to their information rather than (or in addition to) reading articles and watching videos. The podcast is called Walk and Talk with Greg Johnson. You can pick and choose the shows by topic. You can also subscribe or listen with Apple PodcastsGoogle Podcasts, or Spotify. You can see recently posted episodes on the What’s New page at  ResourcesForLife.com/new or the Podcast page.


I’ve had a long-time interest in farming and agriculture. It’s a vocation that involves many disciplines. For more about that read “Yeah, farming is easy. Just become an expert in these 7 disciplines.” [View

I’ve provided tech support and web design services to many farmers and agriculture-related organizations, was a 4H member, and have lived on farms for many years.

So, this past month I launched Farming Life as a Resources For Life initiative that focuses on promoting permaculture and regenerative practices in agriculture and food production.

On that page I feature some of the agriculture articles I’ve written. I still need to go back to older articles and assign the new farming category so they show up on that page.

Heart Songs

This month’s Heart Songs selection is “Despacito” by Luis Fonsi. Two versions of the song are below. The first is performed by Korean K-pop vocalist Kim Hyo-jin (JeA) and Korean guitarist Park Juwon (Facebook). The second video is of the original performance by Luis Fonsi with Daddy Yankee. For more about the song, including lyrics, read the full post. [View]


I want to thank the global team of volunteerscontributors, and workers “behind the scenes” who help make all this possible. I’m very grateful to the many people who continue to uphold and advance the mission of Resources for Life. Thanks again for your support. Please let me know if there is any way that Resources for Life can serve you better.
