There will be many times that friend and foe will take issue with what is said here. But I can only say to that: "Let's hear what you have to say!" While the primary purpose will be political airings I will fill down time with observations and hopes. Keep in mind that there are things other than politics. The world may be spun by those who scramble hardest for power, but most of us find our joy in the simple things.
I like being of service to others: my five children and 16 grandchildren; the people of Washington; and the children I love in Honduras. I am goal oriented and work hard to meet my goals. I like to travel to the "hard places" and have been all through Central and South America and most of Asia (including several weeks in East Timor)and Europe. Driving with the top down, a cold diet cola or Dr. Pepper, a good read or a little gardening and I am pretty happy.
