What about the ones you can hike after you die? Are there no spirit-friendly wild places?

And I’m a poet and I know it, my toes show it, they’re Longfellows. (silly rhyme from childhood) I’m indulging myself in a bit of nostalgia and sadness today.

I’ve simply added a few plugins and removed the blogroll (so I have more room for MY links to sites I find interesting).… Continue reading Templates

I too often see people who I call secret agents sitting and playing the waiting game and these are the ones complaining saying the economy has ruined their business. B.S. I say. Get off your arse and get out of your comfort zone. And I say… Continue reading MeThinks I Ain’t The One Spouting BS!!
I’ve been musing lately on why only one organization felt the need to respond here at this very blog to IMO valid criticisms. I mean, really, I’ve trashed several organizations–both local and national– since October 2009 when I first started posting and only John Farwell at Bend Broadband felt compelled to not only respond but… Continue reading Caring About Criticism…..
