Keeping Portland Weird since 2011
Introduction
I live in Portland, OR.

Look, here's the deal.  You'll either like me or not.  I don't really care either way.  Circle me, don't circle me, whatever.  Me, I'm pretty choosy about who gets to be in my circles and you have to really impress me to make that cut.

And I reserve the right to mute, uncircle, or block for any or no reason.  G+ is a nice, friendly, and not very safe place, and I am treating it accordingly.

What will certainly make me block, though is disrespect, trolling, uncivil behavior, and the like.  Just don't do it.  I don't like it.

Otherwise, I'm pretty friendly. :)

OK, here's one other thing I might as well just get out of the way.  I'm a Christian.  I'm proud of being a Christian.  I like to think I'm a pretty cool one - I keep to myself, I'm not a fundamentalist, I basically live and let live.  But I am.  I'll post about it sometimes.

I don't like obnoxious atheism on my stream.  If I see it (and I'm contrasting that with serious questions and thoughtful comment, which I like, atheist or whatever) I'm uncircling or blocking you.  I'm not going to ask questions anymore.

I hate it when people post paragraphs like the ones I just did but I have to.  It's far too toxic.
Bragging rights
I'm an ordained minister, and a pretty good pianist.
