Save the cheetahs or we’ll eat you

Over the weekend I went to a benefit for saving the cheetahs, predators who live mainly in Namibia as does the dramatic looking woman, Dr. Laurie Marker, who is attempting to save them.  She resembles Diane Von Furstenberg if Diane were taller and had lots of curly hair.  And were younger and lived in Namibia.  The cheetahs have developed an unfortunate taste for the local livestock (sheep, goats, scrawny cows) and this does not set well with the reasonably poor herder/farmers.  So they kill the cheetahs, which does nothing good for saving them.  If you were to evacuate all the people from Namibia, you could save a lot of cheetahs very quickly, and probably no one in the rest of the world would really notice, excepting the evacuees.

A first posting

Welcome and thank you for visiting this web site.  This is a new endeavor dedicated to several things, including highlighting the most recent book, which so far is the only book that I have had published.  But there can be more. The site also includes a blog where I plan to share the experiences of the wide world of California as seen through my own personal lens.  It will be updated from time to time, probably erratically.

A quick perusal should make it clear that this is not a political site expressing a conservative or liberal view, even on Hilary Clinton altho that’s pretty tempting. Nor will you meet the man of your dreams here, or get tips on kitten videos or be able to check out the ten hottest babes on the beaches of San Diego.  You cannot find the latest sports scores or read your horoscope or get a recipe for flank steak with chimichurri sauce.  I am not opposed  to any of these passions, you just have to look elsewhere.  And if you do find some great kitten videos, be sure and let me know.
