The purpose of Mr. Dickie's Blog is to provide a place where I can post quotations I like and write about things that are on my mind. As of the summer of 2011 I have NetworkedBlogs posting a link to this blog to Facebook.
Having a story to write is why we were born. Without a real story, we are hardly a person at all. We have to own our story, take responsibility for it, and claim it all as ours - the bad chapters and the good - in the sure knowledge that God will forgive us the bad ones and set us free to write better ones in the time we have. (Lewis B. Smedes, A Pretty Good Person, p. 71) 3 June 2013
I have been retired from the U.S. government for many years. I was a long time paying member of AOL until May 2009. Until October 2008 I had a fairly extensive genealogy website on AOL. They dropped support.
