My BLOG is back. Each Monday, I'll publish new thoughts on the path of our nation under the category "Ponderings" I promise not to tell you what you should think. But, i will try to get you to think! I will be civil and respectful of all views and, I hope that if you respond, you will be civil and respectful, as well. There is so much going on in our nation today, that I find it necessary to put my thoughts into words. I hope they are shared and discussed.

Also, as time permits, I'll publish other posts on less weighty subjects as food, travel, and observations of the word around me.

Feel free to subscribe to my BLOG at the end of any post. Then, you will know when a new post is published. I hope to meet new friends and discuss the world around us.

Ya'll be safe out there. y'hear?
