My self-summary
Write a little about yourself. Just a paragraph will do.
Divorced for four years after a thirty year marriage, retired college professor (electrical engineering), two adult children out on their own. I live in a small house in the Brookline section of Pittsburgh, convenient to most of our city's great activities. I retired from my full time teaching gig at a relatively young age, inspired by Thoreau's words "I trust that I shall never thus sell my birthright for a mess of pottage". Oh, and I'm left handed. As for professional team sports, I'm more of a doer than a watcher so if you are also a doer say hello.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Bicycling (when the weather permits). Fixing up my house. Turning firewood into ashes. Trying to get good karma. Determined to make 2014 a great year!!! Once the weather breaks I plan to bicycle the GAP to Cumberland MD and back; most likely at least a four day trip. I would love to find a bicycling companion for that ride. Update 6/2/14: Of course the wood stove is now in hibernation, but a lot of biking has been going on. Who wants to go for a roll?
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Pushing onward. Finding and restoring older steel-framed road bicycles and magnesium-cased chainsaws back to original working order (I just redid an old Trek steel-framed touring bike on which I finally made it all the way up Sycamore Street). Keeping my vehicle under 5,000 yearly miles so that I can get an exempt emissions sticker and also feel like I'm trying to do my part by keeping my carbon footprint under control.
The first things people usually notice about me
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
That I'm riding a bicycle.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Help your potential matches find common interests.
Most of the time I eat vegetarian (but I certainly don't necessarily expect that of a date). The Zenith Tea Room on the South Side is one of my favorite places to eat. Another place for great food (both vegan and omnivore) is Spak Brothers on Penn Ave. I love Chinese food (without msg).

For music, it's mostly WYEP but occasionally I get in a WDVE mood.

The three books I've read most recently are all about mathematics: "The Joy of x" , "Thinking in Numbers", and "In Pursuit of the Unknown - 17 Equations That Changed the World".

For movies I mainly watch them at home on the DVD player. Recent good ones I've enjoyed: Fly Fishing in the Yemen, The Five Year Engagement, Larry Crowne, The Way, 50/50, No Direction Home (a documentary about Bob Dylan), Premium Rush, Silver Linings Playbook, Promised Land, The Heat, The Internship, Girl Most Likely, Cloud Atlas, Jack Reacher.
The six things I could never do without
Think outside the box. Sometimes the little things can say a lot.
There are very few things we could NEVER do without. Here are six things I would not WANT to do without:

A good relationship with my children, Father, and siblings
My bicycles
Craft beer
Meaningful projects to work on
Burning firewood to heat my home
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Global warming, lunch, or your next vacation… it’s all fair game.
Why people drive their SUVs to their gym for a spin class instead of simply bicycling around their neighborhood (maybe even for an errand?). Also, how one person's pet is another person's pet's food.
On a typical Friday night I am
Netflix and takeout, or getting your party on — how do you let loose?
Either fixing a bicycle or chainsaw, plotting world domination, or watching back-to-back reruns of Monk.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I’m an empty essay… fill me out!
Sometimes when out bicycling, after being cut off by a car I try to give the peace sign but often only have enough energy left to get one finger up.

Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
You want to take a bicycle ride or a hike, you want to bum around the strip or the South Side sometime, you want to take a day road trip to tour a winery or a brewery, you need a witty and charming date for a wedding or other social event, you want to share a growler of good craft beer and watch a dvd, you don't have cats (I'm very allergic), you don't smoke (again, allergic), you want to join me to browse the Saturday morning garage sales, you like sitting in front of a wood stove watching the fire and soaking up the radiant heat while drinking an adult beverage,you have a burning desire to split some firewood (I will provide the chunks of wood and the maul; you can just swing away), you want to talk about how growing old sucks and see who can complain the most about aches and pains, you simply want to have some coffee and chat with someone new.
