Welcome Aboard!

I'm not normally a jealous person, but when my friend Roxie started blogging, I felt tendrils of green sprouting within me.

You see, I considered starting a blog when they first became popular several years ago and many times since, but some things are best kept to oneself and other people are much better at blowing whistles at businesses and politicians and keeping up with current events than I am.

As for the rest, basically my life is too boring for words unless I'm traveling. When I'm not traveling, about all I do is research, work on my writing, and fly kites. I enjoy hiking, too, except when it's too cold for me, too hot, under thunderstorm skies, or during allergy season which, considering where I live, pretty well covers the entire year.

So, there I was watching TV the other evening when the lightbulb went on: I can blog my "Sound Off!" pieces - my raves, rants, and ramblings that need their own platform. I did a few previously through email to friends, starting with the worldwide Millennium celebration that was held an entire year too early (as if the general public starts counting from zero the same as OS programmers do!), and can continue by blogging whatever strikes my fancy in the future. Please be forewarned, however, because of the nature of the beast, rants are more likely to be forthcoming than are raves or ramblings. If you are offended:

(a) please accept my deepest apology, or

(b) that's just too bad although you might be comforted by the fact that it's the least you'll suffer for ticking me off because I'll be praying for you to receive the light of Christ and only God knows how He'll answer that prayer or what else I'll be motivated to do. Although I've yet to be motivated to do anything more drastic than complain or write letters of complaint to the Powers That Be in your miserable life to get them to hold you accountable for doing to me as you did, you never know. Therefore, don't push me or you may very well find yourself banging your head against a brick wall and bleeding from the injury you caused to yourself.

Nevertheless, I hope you are entertained and amused as well as get your thoughts provoked from time to time.

Welcome aboard!

Well, I might not know HTML (well maybe I do, but it kills my point), but I like your writing.
