Seeking US History Buffs

The very first blog I opened in 2008 was entitled InSearchOfAmerica or ISOA. It was about my portfolio of pictures I had taken on my travels around the country documenting historical sites. In those days the Internet was in its infancy so a dozen views a day was pretty good, but the blog just never grew as I had hoped. I have been trying to … Continue reading Seeking US History Buffs

Looking at Our History And Asking…

The US really doesn’t have a common history. Each sector has its own. The States making up the original thirteen colonies look back at their history with pride, but they often varnish over the dark times to do that. The southern States, until recently proudly clung to their Confederate flags and that way of life. That is now ever so slowly changing. The Western States … Continue reading Looking at Our History And Asking…

Being Prepared…

Even though I was never a Boy Scout, I am a person¬†who tries to be¬†prepared for¬†the challenges¬†I will be facing.

I simply¬†don’t let others¬†tell me what to think. But then again, maybe that is one of the reasons I was never a … Continue reading Being Prepared…

That is where I travel around this great country to find stories and take pictures.¬† The majority of this search has been about our early days as a nation. I recently realized that I am omitting a large part of this search for America’s roots.¬† It actually occurred¬†centuries before the European¬†conquest of America. … Continue reading In Search Of The Original America

It’s Nice To Know Where You Came From, But…

¬† It’s nice to know where you came from but it is more important to know where you are going and we as a world and especially a country don’t seem to have any idea about our future. We need to align ourselves with our fellow man. ¬†A good way to start that is to quit thinking that those you disagree with you, particularly in … Continue reading It’s Nice To Know Where You Came From, But…

A Giant Rummage Sale…

Anyone who has visited this blog in the recent past know that I am pinning great hope on the “emergent” church being able to rescue the current Christian establishments from their focus on believing things about Jesus as opposed to of “being” a Christian through our actions. I was very disheartened when I discovered the statistic that almost no one can tell the difference between … Continue reading A Giant Rummage Sale…
