Quitting Facebook, sort of…

Today I step away from Facebook for good, sort of.  I will be leaving my account live and have set my blog up to auto-publish directly to Facebook.  If you wish to interact with me you can do so via email: or by commenting on my blog entries: Register here.  I no longer believe Facebook to be a good thing.  I am going to retreat into raging kilt land and just be the best person I know how to be.  I truly believe the best way for the average person to affect change in the world is on a personal level.  I will miss the baby pics and cat videos.  I have known some of you for the majority of my life and I believe that the relationships that are real will sustain sans Facebook.

On a side note, I will be taking the 2017 year off from Highland Games.  I plan to register for the Masters World Championship in Iceland and to also compete at the Scottish Games League Championship in Albuquerque NM.  I plan on taking the year to concentrate on my health/fitness and family.  I will likely throw discus/shot in 1 or 2 track meets as well.
