I swore I would never get on the internet. I absolutely loved my BBS. The adage “Teach an old dog new tricks”. Well, then I discovered a cross between a BBS & what is now called a blog. Well, I was never going to blog either. Hmmm….
I always wanted to write, was an activist at age eight, and a news junkie, so what better way to combine all three and here I am.
Let me not forget politics. I was inducted at age eight into being my mother’s foot soldier. Try being a conservative growing up in the volatile 60s in Chicago. I always marched to my own drummer (His name was…ah, nevermind -smile ). My first vote & camPAIN was for Nixon & I’m here to tell you (for those of you who do not know me, I went all out in my garb & made all noon news channels. I wore hot pants, a halter, thigh-high boots and it was all covered in Nixon buttons. I still have a few snazzy ones today, as I do my mother’s invitation to his inaugural ball.
Had I listened to my mother’s sister I would not be such a late bloomer in this field. But I have arrived at the urging of my other half, many friends I made at Free Republic and many other’s.
The premise was years of being someone who was addicted to posting and being a War on Terror Mom, which drove my kids absolutely insane, is I should put it all in one place. So the incarnation from “Pied Piper” to JUST Piper and here I am. I’ve met some great folks, who like me, love their country & JUST want it to stay Free.
So my friends…
JUST Keep on Truckin’ & Let’s Get Our News ON !!!
