After a little pressure from friends and a few family members, I have decided to give this blogging thing a shot. I don’t have a lot of time for writing, though, so I will start by dragging up some already-written things from my past — things that I have been assured would be considered blog posts if I just posted them on a blog site. It’s just that simple — “they” say. We’ll see. Some of these have been posted in other places or printed in little newsletters here and there, so the few of you out there who may actually check out this blog have probably already read most or all of these. But, who knows, maybe I’ll manage to write some new things here and there now that I’ve finally started this. Feel free to share and comment – and welcome to our crazy world.
