First post! A short introduction.

Well, I’ve finally caved and started a blog. Ok, maybe caved is the wrong word. Either way, I’m here for the party, though I recognize I’m waaayyyyy late. But better late than never, right? Right!

So who am I? Kermit Jones is the name. If I had to describe myself, it would be bigtime computer geek, lover of GNU/Linux (thought I’d be specific for the more hard core types), and an all around great guy. (Did I mention humble!?)

Seriously, though. I’m also a U.S. Navy Chaplain and I currently am serving with the Marine Corps (The Navy provides Chaplains to the Navy, Marine Corps, Coast Guard and Merchant Marine Academy – Corpsmen too – thats a “Doc” if you didn’t know).

I get into conversations (read: hot water/argument/etc.) rather often and sometimes don’t have time for full explanations. I also have epiphanies every once in awhile (though to others they may not have the same profound meaning). Instead of wasting brain cycles trying to remember those things, I’d like a place to dump them and this is it! However, I’m interested in feedback, as well, and this seems well suited.

Ganbatte! is going to be more of a personal journey… thoughts that I have along the way in random order. I also have a blog on The Life Values System. I’ll reference it from here, but this is the “catch all.”. That means you’ll get a few sermons, ideas for sermons, illustrations for sermons, and who knows what else! That doesn’t mean I’ll be preachy, though. Just check it out and see!

What’s in a name, you ask? I’ll describe it in a later post. The title has “short” in it for a reason.

So long for now,
