Introduction About me? Well I'm married. My wife Deanna and I live in the central Sierra Nevada Mountains. Like others, we live simple lives and work hard trying to make ends meet while thanking God for our blessings. I'm from Hawaii of Portuguese ancestry. I'm retired, and I'll always be a U.S. Marine, old fashion, Catholic, very Conservative, and not Politically Correct. As for my Cowboy ways? The years I spent growing up mending fences and water tanks, gathering cattle, feeding calves, milking cows, and eating dust during brandings on my grandfather's ranch in Kunia on Oahu helped make me who I am. As for my writing style? I started out as a tech writer back in the 1980s. Today I'm an informal writer. And while I still like doing my own research simply because I don't trust other writers, you'll find I write the same as if we were talking over a cup of coffee. So why write this blog? Well, I believe we should celebrate and defend our American culture, values, and heritage while being honest about our history and that which makes us a great people.
Interests Writing, my horses, target shooting, firearms, trail riding, gatherings, ranch work, fishing, rodeos, volunteering, Conservatism, and researching American History.

You can whistle and steam can whistle, so why do you sing in the shower?

I sing in the shower because the acoustics make me sound like Dean Martin!
