My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a mild mannered mathematician who is works for the Department of Defense. Go figure.

I have two grown sons who are incredible and both are now married to Japanese women.

Along with Rod Stewart, I am passionate about the World’s Greatest Hobby (model railroading) and so, this is where I get my Nom de Plume, “DaphitedFan” as in the “Gorre and Daphetid.” I am planning a model railroad that could have existed in 1948 in Vermont and New Hampshire. I find it fascinating doing the historical research to recreate this halcyon period in rural New England.

For a number of years, I would teach mathematics at a local university and I especially enjoyed working with students from many different cultures and nationalities. One of the most satisfying aspects of teaching was to get really difficult mathematics across to students. I would particularly enjoy spending Saturdays with them before exams.

I love the arts and I especially enjoy going to concerts and seeing operas both in New York and at NJPAC. I have enjoyed going to the Metropolitan Museum of Art, MOMA, the Frick, the Guggenheim and the New York Botanical Gardens.

In the last year and one-half I have become a huge fan of Queen. I mean, really, just how many astrophysicists are rock stars? I particularly enjoyed the "Brighton Rock" solo and the preceding improv by Freddie Mercury at Wembley. Once upon a time there was a human voice that could do that. Just stunning.
Food: sushi, sashimi, fish pudding, strawberry and rhubarb pie, steak and kidney pie. :)
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
my two sons and their families; my cell phone; a computer; tea; something to read; friends
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
How this country is going to survive in the 21st century.
