This is a new blog – and I already have more than I can manage already.  So, I am letting some of them go by the way side.

This blog was stimulated by the many emails and funky websites out there that seek to manipulate our emotions and get us to make faulty conclusions – or at least “feel” a certain way about something.  (The not so gentle art of pushy persuasion)

So I thank Andrea for the stimulus that helped me see this blog was needed and I dedicate it to the memory of my parents who did many remarkable things, even though most of them will never be recorded anywhere.

Happy blogging!
