It has now been 7 years today since I made my first blog entry. Do you remember that very first entry? If not, here it is reproduced below:

Welcome to Roland’s Ramblings
Well, I did it. I finally decided to try blogging after having followed the blogs of my son Adam and my nephew Jason for quite a long time.
I call this blog “Roland’s Ramblings” because I tend to ramble about life, family, friends, people in general, politics, community, outlooks on life, public affairs, religion, and on and on and on.
Chances are I will at some time offend someone, which is why I hesitated so long in making a decision to join the ever-widening world of bloggers. I do not intend nor do I wish to offend anyone. But, guess what. Don’t guess, I will tell you. I am who I am and I tell it as I see it. I am also usually bluntly honest. That is where I usually wind up rustling some feathers. On the other hand, how many people have said “I just wish I could be myself” or have said “I wish people would just be honest with me” or other words to those effects????
So, here we go —- on with the show.
p.s. My deep appreciate to Jason for setting this Blog up for me. The one big thing is “How do I use this thing?”
Postscript: Many times, I have considered quitting with blogging; but, here I am, still here after seven years. But, you know what? I still think I just may give up on all of this!
