What a time of year. I love Christmas. My wife asked me to do so many things that I just now caught up. In addition for the New Year, I was taking a break. The break is now over and I am preparing for the A to Z Challenge in April. Yes, I must start now. Why? Well if I do not, I will not be able to make all the entries required. I am not like most of the people of the blog event. I am not aspiring to be a writer. I am practicing my typing and writing skills to improve myself at work. Tell stories, relate events I have lived through and so on. My posts are generally shorter than most you will read on the web. I am a general-purpose blogger. There is no real theme or anything to my blog posts. I do try to make them interesting. I might even begin talking about politics at some point, because I do have some strong feelings there. Unfortunately, most people who read and comment on politics cannot just address the issues if they disagree; they call out names and such. Regardless we wills ee how this year goes.
