Hello – Olemike here. I am a retired conservative who is interested in politics, gardening, traveling, and playing golf. I like to blog about most of these although I have never written a blog post about golf. I guess we can look forward to that.
My wife and I have 5 kids and 11 grandkids. My views about politics are determined somewhat about how I see the country (and world) changing for them in future years. Being a fiscal conservative, I worry about the direction of the country regarding our national debt, education of our youth, and maintaining values that have made this country great. I believe in personal responsibility and am concerned that as a society, we are coming to rely too much on the government to solve our every problem.
I keep my frustrations in check by working in the vegetable garden. I love growing fresh vegetables and like to share my successes with my readers – few though they may be. Of course, no gardener is without failures as well. I also like to write about those. I live in the central valley of Northern California. This area gets quite hot in the summer so that is a factor on what veggies grow well here.
Lastly, I enjoy taking vacations. They might be long ones (a week or two) or perhaps just a day trip locally. I enjoy sharing those experiences as well.
I look forward to your many comments – be they agree with me or not. Good discussions are quite fun.
