keeps me going through long nights. I am currently
reading "Call To Battle," which is about the Italian Campaign
during WWII. I also like early Tom Clancy and Larry Bond, good true-crime
(A good read here is "Paddy Whacked" by T.J. English,
about the Irish Mob in America), comedy (I have "3xCarlin" by
George Carlin in my bookcase) and trivia.

However, I enjoy documentaries above
I do not like "chick flicks," "slash-em-ups,"
"weepies," or overly violent action flicks.
Classic heavy metal is my main musical taste. I also enjoy smooth
jazz, song parodies, classical music (my favorite piece is "The
Planets" by Gustav Mahler), some country, and some 80's-90's New

Food & Drink:
I cook what I can buy, and only buy what I can afford. This often
means that what goes on my Electrobachi (or in my crock pot)varies
from week-to-week. However, I do enjoy chicken, steak, ground beef,
pork spareribs, mac & cheese, sausage, mashed potatoes, pizza
(when all else fails and I can afford it), and pasta.
I also recently invested in a Crock-Pot, so now I can make soups,
stews, pulled pork, sauerbraten, chili...some good, old-fashioned
one-pot dinners! I also am trying to rid my diet of red meat (I'm
doing this slowly, by incorporating more beans and veggies, and
replacing red meat with poultry and seafood), and having a
crock-pot helps there.
Drinkwise, I prefer non-alcoholic beverages. I prefer diet colas,
chilled coffee, and chilled tea. I also will imbibe non-sugared
fruit drinks, preferring cherry, grape, or cranberry.
