Hey everyone, check out my new website and blog. Also, once you get there, sign up to receive email updates.
Just wanted you to know that I have combined all my blogs into 1 blog site. You will find it at www.profrevkev.com. Here is a direct link to the new blog site.
I am grateful and humbled for how many people follow my blog and send me notes of encouragement. I am trying to take my social media skills to another level. Part of that is developing my own website, complete with my blog. So, I am in the process of closing down all my blogs and moving them all to one place. That place is http://www.profrevkev.com. Once at that site, you will see a heading titled “blog.” That is where my blog will be. When you get a chance, go there and sign up to receive notices from that blog.
Thanks again for your support and encouragement.

I share that optimism. Continue reading
Pardon my Southern upbringing for a moment, but what in tarnation is going on? I was hoping things would calm down after the presidential election and our Federal Government would actually try and get some things done for the good of the people.
Well, I was wrong.
Our entire governmental process is becoming more and more unjust and less and less trustworthy. The lengths people will go to stay in power, or gain power, proves the truthfulness of the old saying, “Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely.” While this post is primarily about the injustice of the present administration, please understand I believe there is enough blame to go around. Our entire governmental system is in need of deep cleansing. Continue reading
