A virgin for the first time

Posted by Picasa
Welcome to my blog, my name is Colin and this blog will cover the various interests of my life namely history and how it relates to current issues, Landrovers, Shooting, raising kids, and comments on my cat whom this blog is named in honour of!
Why start blogging? Because I am tired of being told what to think and what it is to be Canadian, I think it’s important for me to tell you what I think and why. Then you can decide whether you agree or not. Plus it’s more constructive than getting angry at the TV!
I grew up in a strong NDP family, my dad was an MLA for them in the 60’s I got to meet many of the big names in BC politics as a kid. Needless to say I grew up a true blue NDP type. But I wanted also be a soldier, so I joined the Reserves and served in the artillery for 11 years. I also worked in the mining exploration business, slung beer in a small town, sold Landrover parts, did 15 yrs with the Coast Guard and now work for a never to be named Federal Department. On top of this I met my wonderful wife who hails from Malaysia and have 2 wonderful daughters who are busy teaching me about life.
This has all changed my outlook in life, I realized that a lot of what I was hearing was misinformed or even outright lies. Bit by bit I have moved to the right, now I would stick myself self somewhat right of centre, with some sympathy to Libertarians, although I still won’t throw out all the ideas I grew up with. I prefer to pick and choose from the smorgasbord of politics.
Never blogged before, but posted a lot on various forums, so bear with me as I figure out this new adventure and I appreciate your time.
