I am just a regular old guy.
My production date was in 1951.
My expiration date is know only to GOD.
Married in 1976.
3 kids and 2 grandkids.
2 kids adopted as infants and 1 the old fashioned way.
I refuse to live my life in fear.
My family has been in Georgia since the days of James Oglethorpe.
A really big boat is named for a distant relative of mine (CVN70).

My Dad was a Merchant Marine during the "big war".
He sailed the Atlantic and the Pacific on Liberty Ships.

I was ARNGUS 1971-1977.
I trained as a medical corpsman but I ended up driving an M113.

I have a B.S. degree in Biology, and had a career in
process chemistry, analytical chemistry, quality control,
and industrial environmental regulatory compliance.
In 2018, I retired from Georgia-Pacific Corporation after 25 years.
All news media: TV, Radio, Newspapers, Magazines, Bloggers,
Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, Rumble, etc.
exist for one purpose and one purpose only;
and that purpose is to sell advertising.
Such as it ever was...

It's what we know for sure that just ain't so."
~Mark Twain
“A lie can travel halfway around the world
while the truth is still putting on its shoes.”

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed
(and hence clamorous to be led to safety)
by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”
~H.L. Mencken
"Do your duty in all things. You can never do more, you should never wish to do less."

"I cannot trust a man to control others who cannot control himself."

"The American Revolution began long before the war commenced.
The Revolution was in the minds and hearts of the people.
This radical change in the principles, opinions, sentiments, and affections of the people
was the real American Revolution."
~John Adams
"I cannot forecast to you the action of Russia.
It is a riddle, wrapped in a mystery, inside an enigma.
But perhaps there is a key to understanding.
The key is that Russia will do what they believe
is in their own national interest."
~Winston Churchill-1939 (2 months before Russia invaded Finland)
"Many things are riddles wrapped in a mystery inside an enigma and are simply unknowable."

I often ask myself: "Who am I and why am I here?"
Lots of conspiracy nuts of FR now...
Still, a man hears what he wants to hear,
And disregards the rest.
~"The Boxer"-Simon & Garfunkel
People yakkity-yak a streak
And waste your time of day...
All that exists is today, and a hope for tomorrow,
whatever happened in the past is gone,
and no one can change the past.
I do not think that GOD put us here to be miserable.
When we are happy, GOD is happy.
When we laugh, GOD laughs.
When we are sad, GOD is sad.
When we cry, GOD cries.
Nothing else to see here...
Move along, move along...
