Todd Warner is an Errant Ruminant

Or at the very least he can relate to those individuals who break free from the flock to—if only for a moment—venture out on their own in search of something better, or unique, or more meaningful, or fulfilling, or . . .

Todd lives on a small homestead in North Carolina (USA) with his wife. They both work the farm and serve as real estate brokers, all while Todd remains involved in the tech industry in a small capacity. Above all else though, Todd desperately tries to find time to write, but often finds himself distracted by the responsibilities associated to wide-open acreage, fitful weather, and of course, errant ruminants.

Hence, this blog is intended to capture at least some of that activity.
