I came to WordPress because I was not happy with the problems I experienced over at MySpace. When I attempted to return there for a few short Posts, I immediately begin experiencing PC problems again. That was enough for me and I moved on, settling here. I haven’t been here a year yet, and find myself still learning the ropes. It’s different here, but that OK. I’ll learn.

It is however, the end of yet another year. 2010 draws to a close and 2011 is on our very doorstep. Like I am sure you will be doing, I will also be Reflecting on the year past, and I’ll be looking to the year about to begin.

2010 was not too bad of a year for me. I was fortunate to hold my job. I was employed throughout the recession. We had our problems, but we all have problems. I think they are more like challenges though, as opposed to problems. We met the challenges, often one day and one step at a time.

I am a fortunate man. I have a fine family, a wonderful wife, great Step-Children who call me Dad, and Grand Kids galore. What a wonderful life. I have a job, and there’s food on the table, a roof over my head. While we don’t have a lot of money, somehow,  I know, only by the grace of God, we get by and make ends meet.

When I close my eyes at the end of the day, I do so with a sense of accomplishment, knowing that I did the best that I could, with what I had, and I will try just as hard tomorrow if God gives another day.

As 2012 draws to a close, and a new year approaches I want to take this opportunity to wish all those who happen upon this Post,

A very Happy New Year, and that each of you and your loved ones enjoy real prosperity throughout 2011.





I am 62 years old. I've been blogging for several years. I am into History and Politics as well as currant events. The latter being the main issues covered on these pages. I was a Community Advocate for twenty years, and a volunteer aide in a State Representatives Office in my home state of Michigan. While I have basically ceased these activities, I still watch the world around me closely and report on it as much as I can, which I might add is often. I encourage comments on my Blogs. I only ask that we keep our opinions clean and without insults threats or intimidation. I hope you take time to read The Horton Journal, and look forward to your comments.
