Welcome to my Blog........
As an introduction my name is John W. Patten and I live in a small town in Gloucester County, New Jersey called Clayton. I am married to my wife Maryann for going on 32 years, and have two children. My daughter Sarah lives in Northern Virginia, is a pilot, and works for the FAA. My son Zach is presently working for a bank, and explores his hobbies of writing and baking bread, as he waits for the employment picture to improve.
I have always worked in the Agricultural Field, and the Turf & Ornamental Specialty Industry. My hobbies include shooting, landscape design, gardening and reading. My political leaning are definitely conservative, and my religious beliefs are quite varied.
I will share more of my beliefs as I get into my Blog, but that's a start.
My reasoning for starting this Blog are many. For now I'll just say that this Country has moved in a number of directions that go against what I consider "common sense". I believe we need to "take a step back", be better informed and educated, and not just be blind sheep, following the mass crowds.
This Country is an amazing place with amazing people. I hope to be able to introduce you through my Blog, to some of these places and people.
Please bear with me as I attempt to create this little place of mine.
