A Giant Leap Forward

For three years, I have bugged my family and friends with a newsletter that I called the Mount St Helens Watch.

Mount St Helens had been a long time fascination of mine and when the Cascade Volcano awoke again on October 1, 2004, I started the Mount St Helens Watch to report news and information on the eruption and interesting tidbits on the mountain. As this dedicated quest continued, I soon expanded the newsletter to include family information, my travels and even my political interest (just about everything under the sun).

This service is now being expanded to the blogoshpere.

Although I have studied geology at Oregon State University in Corvallis, OR, I am actually an occupational safety and health specialist (an OSHA type of person). For about nine years, I applied my trade with a environmental and geotechnical drilling company located in Tualatin, OR. For the past year, I have served as the Safety Specialist for a non-profit organization that provide job training and jobs for the disabled in Portland, OR.

What to expect from this blog?
  • News and views on Mount St Helens
  • My views and commentary on young-earth creationism, especially their false claims on the eruption of Mount St Helens.
  • Progressive leaning politics
  • Anything impacting Portland and the Pacific Northwest
  • Photographs
  • And more

So for anyone who read this, welcome aboard.
