This is my first attempt at writing a blog. I'm sure as the days go on it will become easier to find things to share with you that hopefully you find interesting. 

Since this is the first of many blogs to come, I thought I would give you a little back ground about myself.  I was raised on a farm in southwest Missouri where I spent the first 16 years of my life.  I consider that to be a blessing, as it helped me learn a strong work ethic at a very early age.  That's something, I believe,  that has benefited me throughout my life.

Enough for now.  More to follow.
