So, to all of you visiting for the first time, I say Welcome. And don’t forget to leave me a comment or two. Sometimes I get tired of the sound of my own voice–not often, but it does happen. You can find lots of stuff on MyPorch, I have lots of travel pictures (Europe, Australia, Africa, the US, Canada), a few political rants, lots of stuff about books, some musical musings, and a whole lot of hyperbole. Feel free to take me down a notch or two.
By the way, no comment from me on Blogging Around the States would be complete without mentioning that half a million American citizens living here in Washington DC have NO voting representation in Congress. American citizens in the rest of the US have two Senators and one Representative you can write to, call, email, etc., we have NONE. The reason those patriots dumped all that tea into Boston Harbor 200+ years ago was over taxation without representation. Well the Potomac is polluted enough so we won’t dump anytning more into it, but you get my point.
