I'm a 77 year-old codger, looking for something to pass time in my retirement. I have a Mensa-grade IQ, but the memory and attention-span of a Mayfly. I have studied the English language, and other languages' influences and inputs to it, since before I attended school. I have a head full of trivia, and bucolic remembrances of life growing up in small-town Ontario. While not "creative", I hope to present some rants and stories which will amuse and educate. Feel free to stop in and observe.
