What is Flotsam and Jetsam?
Under maritime law, flotsam and jetsam refer to the floating wreckage of a ship or its cargo, sometimes purposefully cast overboard to lighten the load in times of danger. I'll bet you can't draw a parallel between the writing I've included here and these nautical terms!
While the original purpose of this site was simply to house the archives of my column for Hersam-Acorn newspapers (Walsh's Wonderings, for those of you who stumbled in here by accident), I completely underestimated how much time I could waste trying to learn HTML programming or how to Photoshop my head onto Hulk Hogan. My love of systemic procrastination has turned this into something else, but I'm still not quite sure what that is. I blame my webmaster (me) for this incompetence.
The "Additional Wonderings" page (tab on top of beach picture) contains the archived columns and other blog-like activity, the "About Me" and "Contact Me" pages are self-explanatory, and the "Goofy Stuff" is probably stuff you should just avoid altogether. My column, "Walsh's Wonderings," can be found in the Stratford Star, Fairfield Sun, Trumbull Times, and Shelton Herald newspapers (among others) every other week. For that archive and links to other places to get my writing, clink on the links at bottom right of the page.
The archives from 2010-2012 are currently being switched to a new WordPress template, so you'll have to navigate back from within the page to access earlier pieces. You can always get my most recent columns by clicking on the link to The Stratford Star.
If you want a great recipe for Pepperoni Surprise, I have that, too. That'll cost you, though. The rest of this crap I can give away for free.
Regardless, thanks for stopping by,
