This collection of Musings is intended as a mix of fun and serious stuff. Maybe it’ll be a bit provocative and we can ‘talk’ about things. Sometimes you will see opinions, occasionally just observations about subjects I find to be interesting, and often I just pose questions for YOU to ponder. My hope is that you will leave a comment when you find something of interest, whether it excites you or makes your hair stand on end. Your Musings are as important as mine, probably more so. Feel free to drop a little Link Luv on anything you like by clicking one of the sharing links. My amateur radio (“ham”) activities are mainly posted at KA5GIL.CaptainJustice.net.
See a summary of all of my Musings here, or pick a past month from the selection box to the right.
I am Guilford “Gil” Jones of Marble Falls, Texas. By education and vocation(s) I am a CPA/Attorney/Judge who also happens to have a lot of hobbies and interests. I am a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin (BBA ’66 and JD ’73). I grew up in West Texas with wonderful parents and a sister who’s not so bad either. Domestically I’m married with children and grandchildren but all of that will stay private. As of 1/1/2013 I will be a retired Texas State Senior District Judge and will starting a new career as a mediator as well as sitting as an assigned judge.
Sometimes we’ll talk here about things that just interest me and perhaps also you, and sometimes about things that excite me — in either a positive or negative way. I hope some folks will come along and join in and all I ask is that the discussion stay respectful, even if we disagree.
I’m a bit of a hobby nut at heart, including BMW motorcycles, computers, ham radio, kayak fishing, photography and hiking, and we’ll talk about some of those things from time to time. In 2010 I started a running program to get fit and lose weight, and now it’s become an addiction. UPDATE: the addiction is now cycling. Mostly road bike, some mountain bike.
