OK, since starting this journal, I have decided that it is indeed a piece of self expression. Some use this as a place for chatter amongst friends, others dicuss worldy issues, me...I just type whatever comes to mind at the moment...nothing terribly insightful. So if you are looking for divine inspiration for that upcoming conversation over coffee, keep looking, you won't find it here...you just wanna know what's going on in my world? Stop in, sit a spell...you might learn something...(hey I said MIGHT!) Something else you might wanna know---I have been to Iraq and back. I say this as a disclaimer. Some of what I have posted here is rather dull, some is rather personal...most of it is just about me and my life as I see it, and how it was for me there.
