Happy New Year, Rod Taylor fans! A lot has been happening since my last
post, including a magical trip to Los Angeles that included a visit with
the lovely Carol Taylor! Here she is with yours truly on the staircase
lined with Rod's artwork.
You may recognize that staircase from this photo of Carol with Rod and
their dog from a magazine article in 1998.
Which brings me to the Rod Taylor Site resolutions for 2020. On Jan. 11,
Rod's birthday, I'll be launching a long-thought-about
blog to accompany
the website. I'll use it to announce updates to the site and to write
about events like the California trip, new finds from the Rod archives,
details about his life and work, and more. It'll be a bit more personal
than this Update page, too, with opportunities for readers to comment
The big resolution is aimed at Jan. 11, 2021, which will mark the 20th
anniversary of this website! Twenty years! That's eons in internet time!
Anyway, I'll be working on redesigning the website this year to make it
easier to view on mobile devices. It'll be a big undertaking, as I'll be
learning new technology and rebuilding a huuuuuge website. I'm looking
forward to the challenge. I've been wanting to do this for a few years,
but the learning curve and the size of the job has been scaring me off.
But I'm full of resolve! (Which I hope does not wane after this day of
Happy new year, everyone!

beautiful! Below is one of the photos they took of Rod during his
