I began this blog a few years ago with a simple one page occasional report I would mail to our five kids.
That’s our gang in 1973 (at left) on our hobby farm in southern Minnesota.
A “few” years later, I find myself a widower with the same five kids riding herd on me as I spend my retirement years ranting and raving for anyone who will listen.
I do often wonder why the kids say “be nice” to me as they introduce me to people.
The newsletter has since grown to a weekly (every Saturday about 10:30am depending on what I was up to Friday night). I’m learning new software to convert the newsletter to a blog (which you have found). Previous delivery of the newsletter was a pdf file as an attachment to an email. I use publisher software to create the newsletter and can send to those requesting a copy firstname.lastname@example.org should you want a copy instead of waiting until I fully master the mechanics of this blog format.
You’ll find the weekly newsletter on this blog as a PDF file.
I am also including the occasional article I write that gets picked up by news aggregate websites like whatfinger.com. They also like the memes I create so I am including those.
In the meantime, you can check my progress here and have a chuckle or two as I wade through very unfamiliar territory involved with WordPress software and the not-so-intuitive instructions from the company that also hosts my business website www.franksiegler.com.
I’ve discovered that retire is what you do to your car. I’m still active as a small business consultant specializing in helping start ups…most pro bono.
I didn’t figure growing old would happen this fast. They (whoever they are) say that wisdom comes with age. I know a lot of old people who are still stupid…many politicians among that group. There is a great concern right now about who will be in the White House for four to eight years. I worry more about the old (and stupid) politicians who have been in Congress for over 20 years and spend most of their time pandering for money and facetime whenever a camera shows up.
Thanks for visiting.
You are now among my group of imaginary friends.
I’ll try to keep the blog as enjoyable for you as it is for me.
