                                                                                                                                                                               This effort has been going on longer than we care to admit.
                                                                                                                                                                                 This page last updated March 9, 2017




We've never fully understood the concept of writers expecting their convenience to over-ride that of their audience, as seems the explanation for the typical format of blogs, with the most recent entries being placed before the already existing ones.  It is contrary to the way in which English is normally read: it even makes it slightly more difficult to find a given entry, since our minds are trained to usually go in a particular direction.

So we don't do that here.  We simply separate the entries chronologically, under the headings of "from1perspective" [the current entry]. and "Recent" [covering a few days up to the last two weeks], and "Archive", which we used to provide broken generally into Quarters all the way back to 17 September 2011 but have now had to substantially reduce as a practical matter for the operation of the site; it will now reflect generally 30 to 60 days going back to the first of the month preceding the current one.  Each is organized in chronological order as well, separated by our logo...though there are variances where we've just checked in leaving a previous entry in place.

We hope that makes it easier for readers, and have done so in following one of the "Pearls": "Always try to make it as easy and as pleasant as possible for somebody else to do something nice for you".

September 17
, 2011, Constitution Day: we begin
another effort at blogging.  Previous efforts have ended unceremoniously for a variety of reasons; for the most part we simply have not found it appropriate to pretend that we had something of significance to say publicly each and every day, too easily then neglecting for too long, distracted by daily life rather than making such an effort a part of daily life.

This process may well be subjected to similar problems but should result in a different end: for this blogging has a new intent added to the old, one of being an exercise in and a marking of self discipline [do not expect perfection; we don't, though we will strive for minimal evidence of our imperfections].  A daily entry is a part of our objective: it may be as brief and seemingly dismissive as " Nothing today", "We, too, sometimes need a break: this is one of ours.", or " Have noted news; gathering thoughts", but we are committed to at least checking in each day, and ask readers consider doing likewise.  [Entries may or may not be keyed to or even linked to other parts of the site, but we will endeavor to minimize choppiness.]

Too often, we may go on too long.  We may try to cover too many bases, resulting momentarily in a light treatment of heavy material, but we believe longer treatments will be available elsewhere on or at least through this site.

One of our objectives is to not waste a visitors' time.  We don't mind even offending folk, if it is all honest and above-board; but we would be disappointed if, having visited, somebody left feeling they'd wasted their time [much as we don't mind somebody leaving our table not being uncomfortably full, but would feel badly if they left hungry despite their efforts to become at least reasonably satisfied].

 

That will have to do for today: life interrupts.

Addendum, October 4, 2011

Any post more than a week old will be subject to being moved from this page and archived. For the immediate future, the archive will be available on another page on the site.

Addendum, October 6, 2011

We will, from time to time, review and edit for typos et al, so that later readers may not be subjected to them.

Addendum, December 9, 2011

We have reorganized [again] so that the single most recent blog entry is readily available without having to mess with a slide bar much.  Recent entries will go to another page, eventually to archives, though those pages will be as we read, oldest first.  We hope this makes things easier for visitors.

Change is not sufficient; we need improvement.

The
(general) PLAN

Exercise integrity, and encourage others to do so: Support each other, and encourage others to do so;

Educate ourselves, and encourage others to do so; Use the term Usann, and encourage others to do so;

Resist tyranny, and encourage others to do so; Exercise authority over officials, and encourage others to do so;

And take the country back, one day, one moment, at a time.


Our goal is to follow the above plan in our lives and our business, thus being a part of returning our country, The United States of America, to the Republic it was envisioned and designed to be and The Great Experiment -- the Rule of Law -- brought to the world by the Founding Fathers.

We ask readers -- and others -- consider doing likewise.

 

Taking no ads, the only revenue to keep this site going is out of our own pockets and should arguably
be going to other things, from the few items sometimes in our store, and whatever
donations might be put in the tip jar on our Comment/Support page.


To the extent that you think reasonable

-- and please think for a moment about how long it would take you to put something like this together,
and what it would cost you, in energy and money, to then make it and keep it available on the web --

we ask you consider contributing to our delinquency.
