Potpourri
Pictures I like, quotes that might define me, snarky memes,
maybe even some politics, and other things that strike my fancy
There are three sections so far to my website. The original section is The Gregarious Railfan which I started in
2014.  Railfanning is my favorite hobby.  In late 2016 I started another section called the Gregarious Roadtripper.  
As I am able to publish unlimited pages on my site, I felt it was foolish to spend money to a create separate  
websites. It has worked well and the new section grew beyond expectations as well. The Gregarious Railfan and the
Gregarious Roadtripper are complimentary sections and the way they are set up on the site they don't detract from
each other, in my opinion.  As the publishing of this site has become a hobby to me in itself, I find there are other
things and other subjects I'd like to explore; whether or not worthy of pages by themselves. My creative juices are
itching to bring new thoughts to my site so I decided to create this section and see how it develops.  I suspect it
will also grow beyond expectations also but we shall find out. And although this section is primarily for my own
enjoyment, Maybe I will find I've created something that I will be willing to share, or maybe my strong thoughts will
cause me to hide it.      
Disclaimers – the ideas and thoughts in this section represent MY view of the world and my opinions.  Most times I
am very opinionated, even snarky. I strive to love all people but am very aware that most people (including me)
sometimes lack the common sense they believe they have. Sometimes people accuse me of having a very unusual sense
of humor.  I acknowledge that and say it's far better than having no sense at all.  I do not seek any rebuttal to my
views and will not respond to such.
