Hello all, My purpose of joining was to be able to voice my opinion of my observations of being a 48 year old male human being....living my life out on the blue ball we call earth. Diversity and different opinions is what makes us special over all other lifeforms on the blueball with us.

Of all the things that can be taken away....or opinions we keep for as long as WE want too. To cause some one else to change their opinion is a enormous task....Lets get started.

I raised my two children as a single parent... It was the hardest thing I ever accomplished in my 48 years. I raised them from the age of three and 18months till, well last night!! LOL Their now 24 and 26 own lives own problems.

I would in no way say I'm a rich man, money wise that is. But the expereince of my life is worth billions to me. Death in no way scares me. I watched my mom & dad grow old and past away, I watched my children grow up and turn into fine adults and I have the love of a wonderful woman, what else do I need?

I applaud you sir!! Raising 2 kids on your own is no easy feat. Especially taking into account bow inundated kids are with media, gadgets, toys, etc. Shoot, my patience is tested raising 2 puppies!! What particular subject matter are you interested in on here?

Government lies, religion ( or lack thereof) alien existance, anything dealing with 911, ripping the bible is allways fun. Our founding fathers, ( who are rolling over in their graves). I beleive my first thread will be about the Pyramid at Giza and what exactly my thoughts are about how & why it is here. That's one subject my little mind has been on since I was about 8 years old.

I had an uncle who was a sheriff and I later found out he was a 33rd degree FreeMason. I quickly put together why he had so many books and artifacts about the Pyramids.. Interested ever since.

Most of the stuff and reasons I joined this site as well. My last thread was about religion but I put it in the rant forum. Feel free to check it out, flag it if you'd like but flags and stars are inconsequential to me. I look forward to that thread on the pyramid a Giza sir :-)

Thank you, I see your signature. I would take that to mean year of birth? If so my son is the same age. I allways like folks who say " Peace" As I tell my soon, what an abstract way of saying good bye, Peace is something the world has not seen in your lifetime, and unfortunately mine either. We can only hope. again thanks.
