I started this blog about 18 months ago; then stopped. Why? I did not take my own advice. I was afraid, at my age, to do anything new. Now I don’t care. I am going to give you my thoughts, in the best tradition of a tribal elder. And you, you can read them, ignore them, or leave and never return. It makes no difference to me. This will refine my life. If it helps yours, fine. If it is stupid and the mutterings of an old man, so be it. But, at the very least, to me, it is better than sitting in my chair watching TV.
