Hey there Internet friend. Thanks for stopping by.

My name is Paul, aka ye olde kamper, and I run this here web log, or “blog,” if you will. For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved to make fun of things, and now with the wonder of the Internets, I can truly live my dream. I wrote a bit about the origins of this blog in Greetings from the Happy Valley, my first post. You can find it here.

I grew up in Northeast Ohio and currently reside in Amherst, Mass with my lovely and tolerant wife, two wonderful daughters, and two recently adopted cats.

Your comments are always welcome. Leave one here or write to me at happyvalleynews AT yahoo.com.

    Your picture reminds me off a relative of the unibomber or perhaps your like with the federal witness protection plan…..you make the “receiving” guy in movie Deliverance look like Marry Happy Poppins. I mean come on lighten the fuck up dude !

    Just trying to be as funny as you! Your grey hair is killing me…………

    Unibomber? You can expect to be getting a package soon. And Deliverance? Where do you think we are, Rootstown? Up here in Mass it’s not ‘squeal like a pig,’ but rather ‘twitter like the gentle tufted titmouse.’ We’re much more sophisticated that way.

    Good to hear from you.
