I have changed the name of this site to Thoughts from the Outside. Before I made the change I did check to see if other people had blogs or sites with the same title. I discovered that a few did. One seemed to center on cooking and recipes and another on Nascar. A few others exist as well. After looking at these samples I decided that if any have the right to title his or her blog Thoughts from the Outside I do. Given who I am, the choices I have made in life, the things I have committed to I think that I am an quintessential outsider. (Note this is neither a term of self praise nor self contempt.) Therefore I think that Thoughts from the Outside is an appropriate title for this site.
