Before the action begins, I'd like to take a moment to say a bit about WHY and HOW. The WHY is to give voice to, well, many things. I gots stuff to say and stuff to share, and this will help me do that. The HOW is through (God willing) daily posts about things that strike my fancy, things I feel are important, things I want to share, and things that are simply amusing or fun. The title of this blog is "DraneSpout" -- a combination of my last name and a description of what comes naturally to me (so I'm told), that is: spouting. A drainspout (also known as a downspout or a scupper and leader) collects what the heavens throw down onto our roofs and sends it ...wherever. In the same sense, DraneSpout collects what I think important/relevant/interesting/etc. and sends it to you via the posts I proffer here. I hope you like it or are intrigued by it or are compelled by it. If nothing else, I hope you're entertained by it. I, for one, will be entertained no there's that. And, frankly, isn't that enough?

Hopefully, this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.
