Welcome, Reader! This first post is exciting. I’m not ashamed of being a more-than-slightly overweight, self-reliant, God-fearing, almost-50, conservative White male. I’m Scotch-Irish and Lithuanian, a native-born son of native-born father and naturalized mother, educated in the military and a public university. I am considering content as a series of daily topics, from places I’ve been, family history, views on teenagers, politics, religion, and education — all the stuff that you either have been taught is outdated, not applicable, BORING or downright DANGEROUS!

Why "notdonner" for my 'nom d 'plume'? When we decided to add the dog, Comet. to the household, we didn't change his shelter name, but also couldn't remember it. Since it was the Christmas season, I thought of Santa's reindeer: not Dasher, not Dancer, nor Prancer... not Donner, etc. I don't know too many who are not dog-men. I have often eschewed politics in favor of talking about dogs, existentialism and everyday perspective as one of the dog-people. Not that I don't like cats, I do. But cats tolerate you, while dogs enjoy having you around. While a vice-president of the New York Mets (MLB) organization, and an attorney in New York share the same first and last name with me, I have no greater honor than having served my country as a U.S. Navy Senior Chief.
