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 native Vermonter. I am a child of the 50s, 1951 to be exact. For much of my youth Vermont had one foot in the 19th century and one in the 20th century. The old ways coexisted with a world that was changing. We were sort of insulated in Vermont from much that was happening outside our state, but our little protective bubble was shrinking. My understanding of today has been greatly influenced by the past as the past was always part of our present in the Vermont of the 1950s and even the 60s. I am not much of a follower and like to do my own thinking. You will find my thoughts on many topics here. I value my family and a quiet existence in a very rural part of Vermont. I try to write clearly and simply. I hope you enjoy and thank you for visiting my site. Take care.
