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history, views on teenagers, politics, religion, and education — all the stuff that you either have been taught is outdated, not applicable, BORING or downright DANGEROUS!
