While I have had many great experiences with Facebook, for a variety of reasons, goodbye Facebook. To quote George Conway in describing the Trump Administration, “it is like a shit show in a dumpster fire.” On this blog, I hope to have a variety of interesting posts based upon my almost 69 years of world class sarcasm, a still alive ability to think with a degree of common sense, a love of puzzles driven by a strong bent of curiosity, a questioning of authority and, above all, a belief that we ALL are much more the same than we are different. I hope to convey the messages of those traits through a variety of posts. Memories of times gone by and lessons learned. Interactions with influential, regardless of social standing, people. Interesting articles that I see due to my need to read. Life experiences drawn from each and every one of those 69 years. Philosophy driven by rock lyrics like, “I wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then.” Please bear with me as I develop this platform and consider opting in as a subscriber as I believe that I will provide a variety of content, photos and links that will interest you and encourage a widening of viewpoints on far more than politics.
