Hi folks,

Ray Galindo here! Welcome to my Hub Pages. I am a writer and a musician. I have over thirty sites on the web. I am constantly coming up with wacky ideas and concepts, and I like to express them and share them with those who are looking for an entertaining and humorous perspective on life. I never claim to be right about anything. More later.
