Welcome To Two Cans On A String Blog

I’ve been blogging here since July of 2014. With so much content available, I decided to mix some of the older posts with the newer ones to give you a true flavor of what this website is all about. The concept of “two cans on a string” makes me smile. I remember as a child trying that out — it wasn’t the best, but we had fun talking about the stuff that interested us at the moment. That’s what I’ve created here. I hope you enjoy it!! And . . .  Thanks for stopping by!

I hope you’ve noticed my Toucans here — colorful little guys — they do need names . . .
