Welcome to my blog.  The name of this blog, I’ve decided over the years, is a bit of a misnomer.  I’ve lived all over the world and, for the past 25years, have lived in Europe.  Let’s be honest, at this point, I’m an immigrant.  I’m passionate about many subjects, many of which will be discussed in the this blog:  Strength sports, Literature, Geography, Cuisine, Nutrition, Languages, Martial Arts, Cultural Identity and Inter-gender relations are but a few.
