Welcome to The Livewire, my first foray into the blogosphere. This site was set up as a gift by my good friend, Don Mynes. Many thanks to Girl of Words for steering us in the right direction to make this a reality. I believe that he wanted a place for me to rant and rave to get it all out of my system. It very well could be one of the best birthday presents that I have ever received next to the 2001 Daytona 500 ticket given to me by my sister. (Editors note: This site was created in August, my brithday is in February. We'll call it an early present.) I will cover an array of topics including Politics, Faith, Parenting, and of course NASCAR, providing thought and opinion, hopefully from a different point of view. This should be fun. I'm really looking forward to it. Your comments and suggestions are welcomed and appreciated. Here we go!
