The first post

Hi, everyone.

Or, actually, who IS out there, anyway?

My name is Bev. I am a guy with what is deemed to have a woman's name, even though Beverly was a man's name for hundreds of years before women usurped it.

I live in Nova Scotia, Canada. I am in my early 40's. I am engaged to be married.

I confess up front that I seldom read blogs. I consider most of them to be boring and self-indulgent, and riddled with typos and grammatical errors.

And, yet, here I am.

If this experiment of mine works out, I'll be posting about the trifles of my life, as well as my thoughts on what is happening in society. I'll be commenting on just about anything I want to, really, and I do hope that at least a few others will enjoy reading what I write.

For quite a few years I posted to a message board run by a guy named Tony Isabella. I quit that board a few months ago. I will soon post message to this blog where I explain why I quit. It is still a little bit hurtful to me, actually, as I had thought him a friend. Anyway, I'll write about that soon.

I guess I will finish this first post by mentioning a couple of my favorite passtimes. I am heavily into Toastmasters, a public speaking organization. I recently celebrated/noted my 16th anniversary there. The only other thing I have done longer than TM is breathe, I think.

I wil post more soon. Please, share your own thoughts with me. I look forward to a lively exchange and lots of fun with youse guys!
