Residence: Knoxville, TN.
Former occupation: Federal government employee.
Education: Master’s Degree in English Literature from University of Tennessee.
Activities: Reading and writing, and maintaining this and my other blog.
Greatest disappointment: the knowledge that I’ll not be able to read all of the books I want to read.
I began blogging to fulfill my dream of being a newspaper or magazine columnist. I almost named my blog “this and that” because in it I express my opinions on everything I think about, read about, and see on TV. I see myself as a cracker barrel philosopher like the men I used to see, in my youth, standing in front of the grocery store on the corner discussing politics, women, sports, fishing, hunting, and just about anything that came to mind.
