I started blogging to improve my writing skills, and discovered I simply enjoyed it so that is why I do it now. I am a computer support specialist at a great Mid Western university, married with three adult children. After a (brief) term as a Christian minister, I have had a series of technical service jobs including photography, darkroom printing, advertising layout, production xerography, camera repair, and computer repair. I have a bachelor’s degree from a good liberal-arts college in Tennessee and my home is cluttered with a tangle of books and periodicals.  My creative passions include photography and muscle-powered transportation.  I have a particular fascination with organizational failure in all its forms.

Politically, I was once conservative. But when conservatives went babbling-crazy I became a liberal. In today’s environment I want to know what conservatives are conserving.

I no longer believe in the supernatural, including assorted spirits, gods, demons, afterlife, or miracles – but I once did so I can be sympathetic to those who do. On the other hand sympathy does not extend to the beliefs themselves, which deserve exposure to the not-always-polite light of evidence and reason.
