Introduction I'm a Blogger by nature, but I just discovered that about myself the first week of February 2005. I have always been something of a writer, and I have always liked off the top of my head mini shorts. I am a huge fan of 50 word fictions. Some of my poetry is written in very free style and some of it is in the most constrained form, so that tells you a little about me. I am fussy about typos and spelling and it irritates me when I see that others aren't. At any rate, keeping a more or less daily Web Log is right up my alley and I am really enjoying what has resulted in a few short weeks of experimenting around with my family.
Interests Blogging with my Brother Ron and my Son Larry, Web Design, Hosting, Domains, Genealogy, Cursillo, Alternative Medicine, Alternative Building, Gardening, Christian Discussion, Politics, Lawn Care, Landscaping, Water Gardens, Perenniels, Trees, Shrubs, Hardy Roses, Visiting Natural Wonders in this Great Country of ours.
Favorite Movies Don't much care for many movies.
Favorite Music I love music, and my likes are varied, but I suppose I prefer anything the singer has written himself. Only he can really get the interpretation right. Therefore, my favorites are guys like Kris Kristofferson, Roger Miller, Johnny Cash, Tom T. Hall. and on and on. And Barry Manilow may well be the Greatest Singer/Song-Writer of all time.
Favorite Books My favorite book is usually whatever I am reading. About the only book I ever laid down was "Tale of Two Cities" I guess it was too deep for me at the time. In contrast, I have completely read through and absorbed, A.) The Bible, B.) Einstein's "Relativity: The Special and General Theory" C.) "The Song of Hiawatha" by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow. Lately, I have read Dan Brown's, "The DaVinci Code" and "Angels and Demons", which Lia also read. I also read "Secrets of the Code", but did not enjoy Dan Burstein as much as Dan Brown. I am also a huge fan of Garrison Keillor.
