Have had many teachers, learnt many lessons and led a varied and interesting life - nuclear physics, coal mines, wine trade, computer systems, marketing and academia, book-writing and have brought up three children and married twice. Along the way I've received knocks and made mistakes, something that shapes my expectations.
I get the most fun from rock and blues concerts and reading books, and have wide interests and a strong underlying desire to understand nature and the universe; people I'm perhaps less successful at fathoming all the time, but I guess I'm not alone in that limitation. I've been my own boss for many years and so have plenty of time to have fun during the week as well as weekends. Am I good company? Well I'd ask you to be the judge of that.
