Bryan is probably THE go-to guy for general knowledge subject matter, with in-house depth and scope of information bordering on INSANE.
A conservative RINO (Republican In Name Only), his love of country requires him to not drink the kool aid of the extremes, but to find common ground without compromising core beliefs.
Bryan is well traveled, well read, an Army Retiree, and a proud Hasher.
Strengths: Creative, fair, imaginative, friendly, generous, flexible but not limp, upbeat and optimistic, able to generate laughter spontaneously, bold when required, focused when it matters.
Weaknesses: Goes dumb and uncomprehensible near buxom redheads bearing cheesecake and wine.
Special Skills: Above average comprehension, ice-breaker Master, Back Rub Master, and a darn good post-intimacy breakfast maker. ;-)
Weapons: Sharp pen, sharper tongue, unbelievable wit of the sharpest order.
This blog is a work in progress, so don't mind the construction in the background. As my moods change, I may add or remove features, introduce new stuff, or jettison things that don't quite fit in the mix. Your mileage might vary.
For some specifics as to how I do business within my own LiveJournal, you can either go the detailed route or the short route...
Please note that I can not access Live Journal from my place of employment, so any comments sent my way, along with errors and corrections in my blog, won't be addressed until I return home in the evening.
Feel free to friend me if you find what I write in my LJ interests you. We need not be ideological soulmates. I'll always friend you back, in any case. I won't take offense if you change your mind and back out the door, quietly or otherwise. As long as your blog continues to interest me, don't necessarily expect me to rapidly reciprocate in kind. But be warned: don't expect me to comment on your LJ every day. Things happen, and I get bogged down by daily life as well. I'll visit whenever possible. Really.
I don't maintain any special filters. What you see is what you get. I tend to make the more personal and randy stuff "Friends Only," but otherwise, everything else is an open book. As this is *my* blog, my topic matter can go anywhere from a "G" rating (suitable for all audiences) to NC-17 (no one under 17 admitted). Please make a mental note of that. On the other hand, feel free to include me in on as many filters as you feel comfortable sharing my presence in. I'll yell loudly if I feel squeamish.
I won't delete replies in my comments section unless they are libelous, overtly pornographic in nature , over-the-top inflammatory without reasonable context, or just rubs me the wrong way. Unless I get specific complaints against individuals from friends requesting action, I'll pretty much leave such things well enough alone.
I also have a sci-fi community that I founded called beyond Elsewhere. It is also where I keep people abreast of my genre writings and such.
From the Keystone State to the Sooner State, I've been around quite a few places, and have proudly worn the uniform of my country. If you chose to hang out with me and share the journey, thanks and welcome aboard.
For now, this is my official blogging home. That will change once I reconfigure my domain on the world wide web, get smarter with blog software and scripts, and become independently wealthy. Until then, this is the only game in town.
