    Hi Folks...

    Thank you for allowing to join this forum.

    Just a little about myself, the first part of my life was spent out west where my father was the sheriff of our county. We then moved to Michigan and he worked with the DOC until his retirement in 1995. My mother worked for a circuit court judge for 23 years.

    My father always tried to steer me toward a career in law enforcement and after a stint in the Coast Guard, I did in fact go in that direction. However, I enjoyed working on the water too much and felt something was missing in my life. So I started a career working on ore freighters in the Great Lakes as a ships officer, until I was forced from that profession by the influx of cheap Japanese steel and lagging auto sales in the American market. During the winter months when I wasn't at sea, I would reside in Colorado and do avalanche search and recovery with my Golden Retriever "Chelsea" who was with me an amazing 17 years, and who sadly I had to put down in Dec. of 2005.

    I now reside in Northern Michigan, with my horses and German Shepherd named "Dog", where I do some farming/ranching, and am a freelance writer. I try to concentrate my writing efforts on current events, with great emphasis on issues involving law enforcement, however, I also write what my publisher wants, and the majority of the public wants, which is celebrity news, and all that claptrap Hollywood garbage that bores me to death. For a sampling of some of my articles please visit my blog at http://blog.myspace.com/capt_brian

    I also work with my volunteer fire dept., as well as being a reserve deputy with our mounted division until our unit was disbanded due to budget constraints, and we are now strictly volunteer, doing parades, shows for children and crowd control for our many summer festivals, concerts and county fairs.

    I guess that pretty well spells it out for everyone, thanks again for letting me be a part of your forum, I look forward to sharing opinions and thoughts with you all.

    Brian

    A Smile

    A smile cost nothing, but gives so much.

    It enriches those who receive it,
    without making poorer those who give.
    It takes but a moment, but the memory
    of it sometimes lasts forever.

    None is so rich or mighty that he
    can get along without it,
    and none is so poor but that
    he can be made rich by it.

    A smile creates happiness in the home,
    fosters goodwill in business,
    and is the countersign of friendship.

    It brings rest to the weary,
    cheer to the discouraged, sunshine to the sad,
    and it is nature's best antidote for trouble.

    Yet it cannot be bought, begged, borrowed,
    or stolen, for it is something that is of no
    value to anyone until it is given away.

    Some people are too tired to give you a smile.
    Give them one of yours, as none needs a smile
    so much as he who has no more to give.

    Thanx Jewell! After having "Chelsea" my Golden Retriever who worked with me in search/recovery (and in NYC 9/01) for the better part of 17 yrs, I wasn't sure I wanted another dog. But in April I got "Dog", a German Shepherd, and she's turned into a great companion.

    THANX! TO ALL FOR SUCH A WARM WELCOME!!!!

    Disregard, I hit up your myspace page and figured it out. Nice area up there, beautiful. Always get to the Cherry Bowl a few times in the summer.
