Pinned toot

More on my experience and thoughts on the web than seemed helpful to put into my #introduction 

Pinned toot

Exploring Mastodon, feels a bit like the pre-MySpace/Facebook/Twitter online world before the largest corporations took control and monetized us all, when we had our local or even online days with WBS chat and the like.

Liking it so far, appreciate the rules of the qoto.org instance

Thanks for the welcome, #@freemo Here's my .

I'm...
• a dad of a handful of kiddos, married, living in Colorado.
• a Christian in the Anglican tradition, and suppose I'm an unaffiliated conservatarian.
• a reader, working through the great novels as well as easier/fun books and nonfiction.
• a card and board game player and am happily teaching more to my kids as they get older.
• short on free time. I enjoy a philosophical pipe as I read and/or reflect, and occasionally get my guitar or bow/arrows out to learn new skills.
• a software developer... and have been for a very long time, now in the world of APIs and cloud development (CRM/SFDC).

I’m so old I remember when the Democrats were shrieking for justice for the people of Iran, right up until the people of Iran began agreeing with Trump about their government’s corruption.

Man, those were the days.

If you are serious about wanting to improve education, do not vote more money for the education establishment that has been dumbing down the schools for years. Vote for vouchers, tax credits, or anything else that will transfer decision-making power to parents.

New personal record today, ran 18 miles /29 km and it was so cold I had icicles on my eyebrows!

Everyone evangelizes their children, even if the faith they’re evangelizing is agnosticism. “All faiths are equally valid” is just as much a religion as Christianity, except that it fails to lay a solid moral foundation and creates a weak, contradicting worldview. twitter.com/cindy_w_brandt/sta …

A CNN reporter is taking shots at the Bee because our articles get shared a lot and some people think they're real (which will always happen with satire). After thinking "how adorable," I thought, "well surely this guy has chirped at the Onion for the same thing..." 1/3 twitter.com/donie/status/12139 …
