Welcome

Dear friends:

This blog is an attempt to share some of my activities, images and thoughts.   Blatantly,  I am pitching my latest non-academic book.  Some of you are aware of it; others don't even realize I do this sort of thing.  In any event, I hope you take some time to explore this site and get back to me.  I would love to  hear from you.

I find endless fascination in some topics that have resulted in or are planned to become books.  They include golf, Lake Superior,  journalism,  and religion/spirituality  Of course I am still a learner.  That's where you could come in.  I want your reactions to what I have done or am doing, and I'd love it if you would share some of your wild and crazy ideas.  By the way, I'm also interested in  toy trains, travel, Roy Chapman Andrews (the explorer), Cameroon, crossword puzzles, Steve Martin,  photography, and grandfatherhood.
