Tomorrow marks the first anniversary of this blog. Not exactly an earth shattering event, I know, but there are a few words I'd like to lay down to mark the occasion.
This has been a tough year. My father passed away. We lost a sister-in-law. I lost an aunt. A very close friend is in Iraq (for the third time). A milestone birthday has come and gone, admittedly not as big an event as I was afraid it was going to be. My beloved Stars missed the playoffs. I lost one of the best buddies I've ever had. Yet, with all of this, I know my family and I are very blessed. I thank God for every day he allows me to be on this Earth.
Our nation has changed. A year ago we were just starting to see what Obama and his minions had planned for their regime. Indeed, his efforts to fundamentaly change my country were the primary motivation for me starting this blog. Few people had any idea he would be pushing us so far towards socialism, so far towards financial meltdown. Few thought that what was a financial problem would become a financial meltdown with no end in sight. Few foresaw the incredible groundswell of opposition to Obama and his efforts, giving us hope that we can save our country from His "Change".
I've averaged almost a post per day during this past year. There's been an awful lot to brain dump about ... an awful lot of electrons have been burned. Take that, Algore!
I'm going to continue writing here. What started off as a therapeutic outlet for my thoughts and frustrations will pretty much stay as it is. I have been surprised by the number of folks who have dropped by for a visit now and then. Those of you who do, to look, to curse, to laugh a bit, are very welcome to continue to do so.
