Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
I am a person who respects logic and rational thought and I do not
believe in anything supernatural, though that was not always the
case. I'm a Libra, and if you think that *really* matters, you can
stop reading now.
I'm easy to live with, as I have had a mixed batch of family and
friends living with me for extended periods. I presently live alone
with my 3 dogs. I like having people around me, but shun those who
like emotional drama.
I like spirited debates, but avoid arguments.
I am compassionate towards all creatures. I put food out daily for
the birds and squirrels. I consider all life forms precious, except
mosquitoes, ticks and chiggers.
Them SOBs can just die !
My interests have varied, from raising tropical fish, fixing old
cars, remodeling homes, astronomy, skiing on snow and water, art
(drawing and painting), designing and making jewelry, photography
and philosophy to name a few.
I spend a lot of time reading, writing, playing with my dogs,
working around the house and assisting neighbors with their
projects. When I watch TV, I usually watch a BBC drama or
I support the local animal shelter with time and money.
I'm driven by compassion, kindness and generosity.
I had been active in and was a Board member of the Arkansas Society
of Freethinkers. I describe myself as an agnostic atheist.
Agnostic because I don't believe anyone can settle the issue, with
absolute certainty, whether there is a god, although the
probability of there being a compassionate one seems nil to
Atheist because I am 100% certain that the gods described in the
religious books I have read are figments of ancient people's
I understand the benefits of belonging to a church that offers a
person a sense of community and fellowship. But, if you placed a
god at the top of the most important things in your life, you
should pass me by.
I have several years of college, and pursued the subjects that
interested me rather than a degree. I'd like to think that some day
our species will be able to answer some of the big questions.
I have been separated for over two years from my wife. She has
moved to Ohio, and we are pursuing a divorce.
I would like to make friends and keep the relationship
If you would like to see more pictures or ask me a question, send

What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
I've been retired from AT&T since 1999, but I've kept busy by
going back to school (no degree) and taking subjects that
interested me and pursuing my other interests.
I have painted houses, repaired cars and done other small jobs to
keep busy and make a little extra cash.
I read a lot of non-fiction and usually have 2-4 books I'm
I like going for walks and playing with my dogs.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
I'm handy around the home and have done all major repair jobs,
though I no longer do roofing.
I have not found an automotive problem I have not been able to
I'm good at getting along with other people and as far as I know,
I've been good at not making enemies.
I paint and draw quite well.
I think I'm pretty good at keeping a conversation going when
meeting new people, and the people I have lived with.
I keep my head in tough situations, stay optimistic and I don't let
the little stuff bother me.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.

have several favorite writers: Mark Twain, Emile Zola, Bishop
Spong, Christopher Hitchens, Noam Chomsky, Karen Armstrong, Isaac
Asimov Arthur C Doyle, Arthur C Clark to name a few.
The only music I don't like is the country western, my dog died, my
wife left me, and I'm crying in my beer songs.
Neil Diamond, ABBA, The Bee Gees, Beethoven, Eagles, Alan Parsons
Project, Tangerine Dream, Marshall Tucker are some of my favorite
I prefer light comedy TV sitcoms, though I have been known to watch
ER and I really like BBC MI5. I watch a lot of PBS, and have done
some volunteer work for them.
I've enjoyed live Ballet and plays.
I like all foods, except liver, but my favorites are Thai and
I make a pretty good Hungarian dish called Chicken Paprikash and a
Thai soup called Tom Yum Goong.
My favorite sandwich is a BLT. though I've given up eating pork, so
no more BLTs.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
Sunshine, friends, my dogs, books, my sanity and toilet paper.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
philosophical issues in between thinking about what to make for my
next meal, and what the Hell am I doing in Arkansas?
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Home with my dogs or visiting a neighbor friend.
