This website is starting to slowly take shape and there will be a lot going on here. I will have multiple sections that deal with nature and wildlife, a section for humour and short stories, a tech section, a food section and some sections that deal with some of the bigger issues facing myself, my friends, and our society.

I have a lot of interests and this site is a way for me to chronicle and share those interests. While I don’t think I have has many layers as an onion, I am much more complex than say a peanut butter sandwich.

You are most welcome to visit the site and to poke around; share the stuff you like, and if there is something that you don’t like, or don’t understand, feel free to comment. As long as you are respectful I can tolerate different ideas – a soup with just celery in it just isn’t that interesting.

I figure that by expressing my views on my blog and not on some other platform like Facebook, that you, the reader, have every opportunity to choose whether to read or to ignore the issues – I believe, at least at this point in my life, that you can lead a horse to water but you can’t make him drink. So the water will be presented, whether you choose to drink it or not is up to you.

Enjoy and have a great day.
