My Interests are many, and always in excess of the
funding I have to sponsor them!
"The Girls": I am a man rich in daughters! The highlight of my life, the
best I have ever done, is represented in the three young women whom I have had the
privilege to nurture over the years.
Grand Kids! I have six GRAND
kids! Another one is due in February, 2010. See them all in the
photo galleries. They are the delight of my life. Each one is
precious and beautiful! Carey has three (she got the two-for-one
deal), twins now a year old and a beautiful daughter; Laurel has one, and
one coming in February, and Jenn has two!
Digital Photography: I have a digital
camera which is wonderful for storing pictures. Most of what you see on this
website are photos I have taken with that camera. Check the
photo albums, you will see my photos, and old photos which I have scanned (the old ones are
Hiking: I have grown very fond of the
mountains in New England. I like
very much and hike it many times each season.
Bicycling: I have taken to this for exercise,
and fun. I have a "hybrid" and a "mountain" bike. I must
admit the hybrid gets most of the work. Riding "off road" is a lot
of work and kind of dangerous (but boy do I look good on that mountain bike, Ha!).
Computing: I have enjoyed computers over the
years. They have been a big part of my career, and also it is just so much fun to
have all those gadgets. My latest endeavor is the MCSE
(Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer) courses; I hope to pass the tests and become
certified in 2002. UPDATE: Testing is now complete for the MCSE!
MS now recognizes me as an MCSE(Microsoft Certified System Engineer), and
a MCSA (Take a look at my
I have also just completed the CompTIA Network+ certification. Hoorahhhhh!
Tinkering: I love to tinker at projects in
carpentry and automotive repair. That's because these projects require TOOLS!!
I am sure that if they were to combine Home Depot with CompUSA, there would be no
other place where I would shop (well, maybe the motorcycle shop, ha!).
Guitar: (October, 2006) I've decided to try to
play electric guitar; I like the Blues, soooooo, we'll see!
Motorcycle: I love to ride.
I acquired a cruiser this summer, it's a
Yamaha RoadStar. This is the
second "Roadie" that I have owned, I like them a lot.
