My name is RT Cunningham, and this is my second and (most likely) my final blog site. I’ve had other websites, but I purposely avoided the blog format with them. My first blog was called “Untwisted Vortex”, which I ended in 2013.
I won’t offer any photos of me for you to gawk at because I’m not very photogenic. If you must know, I’m an American Caucasian male with a mixed ancestry. Josie, my wife, is a Filipino-American with even more of a mixed ancestry, and we’ve been married since 1985.
My first name is “Richard” but very few people who know me call me that. My relatives in the Philippines can’t even pronounce it correctly. I’ve been called many things over the years, some words I can’t even repeat. I used “RT Cunningham” as an alias while I was in the military, even signing documents that way. The reason I use it now is that it’s way shorter than my full name.
I started this blog in my 60th year of life, 2020. Looking back to the time when I was merely 20, I never thought I would make it this far. As this blog progresses, I have no doubt I’ll experience senior moments, brain freezes and other lapses in memory and judgment. It happens to everyone as they age, whether they care to admit it or not. If they’re worthy events, I’ll write about them. More than likely, I’ll forget about them before I can.
This blog covers any subject or topic I want it to cover. I don’t think it will ever change. Even when I get very little web traffic, I’ll probably keep it alive, on life support. I’m stubborn, and possibly too stubborn to give it up. Since it costs me less than $80 a year to host it (including the domain name), and I always make more from advertising than that, it effectively costs me nothing.
