About Me

Posted by olemike on 12/02/2012

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.

  1. Thanks for sharing. I was just talking with someone today about the state of our country while I was out gardening. I live in Florida and was just researching nematodes, bad problem. Am going to try solarization.
