Due to privacy issues (that have nothing to do with things I have talked about recently) and the fact a person has been stealing my photos, this blog with be shut down. I know that I may sound like a whackadoodle after all I've written about but I have verified this through 3rd parties, so it is unfortunately true. Even Jack can verify that this person is acting in a very disturbing manner and he even wants me to start carrying a gun. (the person lives in AL). This person has been following me for over a year now and it is very upsetting because they have also tried to get some of my friend's personal info and I got proof recently that they are taking my photos, which I had suspected. Since I make part of my living with my photos, I have to protect them and myself. This decision is solely related to this person's actions and a result of my absolutely refusing to put up with even a shred of any more bullshit. I have had it with deceptive, malicious behavior and am going through my life with a broad sword, a sieve and a torch.
The blog will still exist for the construction information, and the fact that any photos stolen here have already been got, so I'm just gonna leave most of it.. However, it will be cleaned up of many personal references and just left for the building/ gardening info. I don't want to make it private because then it would block folks from finding relevant construction info and I still get a lot of hits for people looking for that sort of thing. I will start a new, very anonymous blog (also about building, gardening etc.) sometime very soon, so if you want to follow along please email me at the address over to the right, at my personal email if you know it, or message me on Facebook. And I give you my solemn word that your email address will be sacred to me. I will never disclose it to anyone. I will explain what's happening on the new blog. If you email me, I will verify that you are who you say you are and then send you the link. I will also be sending out the link in an email to those of you that I have your contact info. If you do not wish to follow me to the new blog then I sincerely thank you for reading all these years and wish you the best. Cheers!
Edit: Some folks may wonder (and I do too sometimes!) why I continue to write and share, especially some of the very troubling things. A longtime reader sent me an email and this was one line..." your sharing your struggles in life makes my own seem easier to face..." Okay, THIS is why I keep writing. This is why I share. Due to a lot of circumstances, I can't physically help many folks. I don't have the various means. But if I can encourage anyone to keep trying and fighting, then I will do that and the hell with anyone that scoffs at it.
