I was going to post a personal story today of a time in my childhood when I did not listen to my parents and nearly drown in a river. Instead, I was moved by the news to post a short piece on the rescue of the thirty-three miners in Chile.
I know that I normally post about writing and satire, but I thought this event warranted a change of venue just this once.
I think that our own United States government could learn from the example set by this seemingly third-world country in how to conduct one's self both politically and personally. Maybe it is time that our own current administration take the opportunity to provide some of that transparency and bridge-building promised during the election campaign.

A Flawless Rescue
at 8:49:00 PM
I am an old soldier, now reformed to backyard farmer, writer, blogger and aviation systems trainer. Although working on it, I've yet to earn the title of gentleman.
Things that interest me? Writing in numerous genres but mostly suspense, science fiction (speculative) and mystery. Outside of my full-time job, I love everything to do with aquaponic gardening and suburban homesteading. I often blog or post youtube videos about these subjects along with updates on my small typewriter collection, rants about our world's current state of affairs, surviving a zombie apocalypse or the antics of my backyard chickens.
