I’m Rick — I’m an opinionated guy with lots to say about a lot of different things.   I’m a thinker, writer, philanthropist, husband, Dad, animal guy, musician.  I do what ever little things I can to make the world a happy, peaceful place.

I’m a definitely a liberal in my political beliefs.  Not based on an ideology but on the concept of the word liberal –  never blindly standing by the status quo for it’s own sake;  looking for new ways to do things; – looking for ways to promote the idea that everyone is equal and should be treated as such.

This site is about my thoughts and ideas but I’d love to hear your thoughts as well.

Drop me a line if you like.  I promise I’ll get back to you – especially if you disagree with me. I’ve found that I’ve learned the most from those who do not think as I do.

If you feel inclined to send rude, hateful, disrespectful comments, please feel free, but please understand that I have neither the time nor inclination to give them a second look.
