I don't really know what to say.  Hello.  Linsday's offered me the run of the place, because I offered her some photos to post.  She didn't want mistreat them, and so here I am.

I'm a lot of things.  A photographer, soldier, interrogator (Army National Guard), cook, aikidoka, former journalist, dancer, actor, reader, blogger, gardener, rock climber, horseback rider, and a whole lot more.

I'm educated, an auto-didact, and sometime pedant. I like languages.  I am fluent in two, conversant in two more, and can make polite noises in more.   My mind hangs onto trivia.  When I took library science in HS, and then when I studied journalism, my instructors said, "It's not what you know, but what you know how to find."

My blog  Better than salt money reflects that. It's a mishmash of my life, food porn, photos, philosophical musings and rants.

So I don't know what I ought to post here. Pictures?  Sure.  Those are easy.

Commentary... maybe.  It's hard; because there's a bigger audience here, but I have my own place too.

I have hobby-horses.  I may ride them here.  Torture/interrogation is one of them.  I have some experience on the subject,  and strong feelings about it.  Long story short, I'm against the one, because it's bad for the other.

Cookery... I don't know.  Who likes food porn?

Because it affected her, and I hope in a way that was good grieving, I'm going to give you one of the photos I offered her.  It's topical, as she reminded me, to her father.  I took it in Ukraine, two years ago.Poppy_heads_img0215

Food porn is the best...GBShaw said " The love we have for food is the sincerest form of love that exists."

On the other hand, there's the opium poppy.

Hello. Very interesting. Thanks for keeping us 'busy'. I hope if you talk to Lindsay you will tell her that I'm thinking of her and wishing her well.
Again, thanks for your writing.
