Welcome to the inaugural post on my MODIRT.COM blog. They say that all journeys start with the first step……. and here we go!
Why MODIRT and why a blog? First on the MODIRT name. Short, easy to remember and very descriptive of what it is we do. In farm and ranch appraisal, often times most of the value is in the land or dirt component (as opposed to building improvements) and most of what we do is in the State of
I must admit from the outset that the concept of the Internet “Blog” has been a difficult one for me to grasp. About the time I finally had the basic blog concept down, the whole thing struck me as humorous that someone would presume to think that anyone would care what they thought about anything (reminds me a little bit of those street corner preachers), or that anyone would even find a blog to read it. Akin to a “shout” in the forest…..if nobody is around to hear you, does it matter? To some, it does. And what I find surprising is that more hear that shout than you might think.
So what I’ve decided to do with this “Blog” (if we insist on calling it that), is to provide thoughts and information on three broad topical issues:

On the first topic, while I have some thoughts on political issues, for the most part, I tend to keep those to myself. But politics is so ingrained into our lives that in many ways some discussion of it is unavoidable. For now, I’ll only say about politics is that in my opinion what we need in the way of elected officials are more statesman and fewer politicians and if you don’t know the difference, I’d encourage you to look it up. On the opinion pieces, I’m viewing these as being similar to Letters to the Editor that you might read in your local paper. As such, they are my opinions, and we all know opinions are like hind ends…..everyone has one. If you have a different opinion, feel free to share it as a response. You have that opportunity. As long as you remain civil, I can take it. Heck, I might even learn something.
And so the journey begins. Stay tuned!
