This blog, Views from Paradise, is intended as a personal blog for my family and friends.  I have no intention to make this a public dialogue.  I realize it is in the public domain and I remain careful not to reveal details on the family or attract controversial attention.

It is an attractive title, so I am often getting replies from people wishing to connect further or sell advertising.  This will never happen.  So unless you know who I am, please do not reply or comment on my blogs.  I will never connect this blog to another site.
