Hello, GayVisalia.  As this is my first post here, I thought I'd do a basic introduction, for those of you who don't know me.  

My name is Jim Reeves.  I've lived in Visalia for almost all of my life, and work as a 9-1-1 Emergency Dispatcher at the Tulare County Sheriff's Office.  I've been dispatching for over 20 years now, and can't imagine anything I'd rather do.  (Well, I'd quit in a hot minute to be an astronaut, but NASA doesn't seem interested, so dispatching it is)  

In my spare time I dabble in HAM radio, and my callsign is KC6YRU.  I was first licensed in 1991, and have radios in my home and car.  It's a great hobby, and a huge step up from my younger days as a CB'er.

Since about 2008, I've been blogging at various sites.  First was for my own entertainment on MySpace (boy, those were the days!), then at QueerVisalia and Queerlandia.  A few years ago, I was invited to be a community blogger at the Visalia Times-Delta's online site, one of several 'at large' bloggers.  You can find my blogs at Alternating Currents.  I also have my personal site, at Jimmiejoe.com.  You can follow or friend me at my Facebook pagemy Twitter feed, and Instagram.

I'm a board member with PFLAG Tulare-Kings Counites, manage the Tuesday Evening Dining Group's (TEDG) webpage.  

I will be posting from time to time about various things, generally gay-related or Visalia-related.  Or both. I hope you enjoy my blogs, and I look forward to sharing my thoughts with you.
