Just a few words about my content

I invite all readers here. You may not agree with my writing and that is fine. I respect other points of view. I refrain from name-calling and personal insults – that’s grade school stuff and does not belong here or in any adult discussions.

I try to present information – you can make up your own mind about the information I present. That’s a good thing. We live in a world where disinformation is becoming more prevalent and it makes it hard to know what is the truth. We all need the truth in order to make good choices and act. I am a friend of the truth and want it, even when it is going to disabuse an opinion I have had. This is how I can change direction and act accordingly.

Some of you may react strongly to what I write. This is your prerogative. I try very hard not to tell anyone how to think or what to think. I try to share what I think. I am not looking for verbal bullying from anyone. This is not adult discourse. I do not need any rattlesnakes for friends. You never know when they are going to bite you and I may not always have the antivenom on hand. If your purpose is to bite and be toxic, please do it somewhere else. At my age, 70, I am not looking for playground behaviors and antics.

Sorry for this, but it needed to be said. I have not had to say anything like this in the last few years, but all it takes is one, and the attack on my thinking and sharing is not forgotten. Don’t forget, I am a Scot, and we are known for never forgetting a trespass.

Thank you and take care. I hope you continue to enjoy my writing. It is a bit eclectic, but so am I.

I am a Vermonter, been one all my life. That just about tells you all you need to know. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. There is a lot in the world I do not understand. My writing is my attempt to wrap my head around much that is swirling around me. Some time ago gasoline pumps changed to the way they look now. I had stopped to fill my Jeep and I could not get the gas to pump to save my life. I went inside and complained to the attendant. She knew me and said, "Ed, the whole world is changing and if you don't figure out the changes you are going to fall off the earth as it spins around." Well, I am not always successful figuring out the changes, but my writing is my way of working through some of them. I hope you enjoy.
