I confess, that photo is from 2007, but I like it and I don’t think I’ve changed much. Ha ha.
Welcome to Bull’s Roar, a blog I started in 2009. I started it because, when I was on a trip to Europe in September and October 2008, I was writing detailed daily emails home, and people seemed to like them. They told me they wanted them to continue.
OK, I thought it might be interesting to keep writing, and here I am several years later, still churning out the bull.
Why the name Bull’s Roar? Well, way back in my high school days, my nickname was Bull, and among my closest friends it’s stuck. They tend to call me Peter or Pete these days, but I don’t mind Bull – it’s an honourable name!
The other thing is the expression, “Doesn’t come within a bull’s roar”, meaning “not even close”. Finding a unique name for your blog is not easy and luckily that one was available.
I’m 69 (as of 12 Feb 2016), retired, and free as a bird. I have plenty of time to write and once I get going, you can’t stop me. I can be pretty opinionated, but I hope I’m also pretty well humoured too.
Anyway, read on and please feel free to leave comments. I’m really writing this blog as a means of self expression now, and also because I want to make it into a book one day. Yes, it can be done quite easily. If you want to know how, just ask.
