My Nielsen forefathers came from Assens, on the island of Funen in Denmark. They were shipbuilders. I'v traveled to Copenhagen and Assens. Denmark is not a country where I could live.
I am retired and enjoying teaching and participation in fly fishing. I sometimes entertain friends with lodging and guided fly fishing trips and cook for them. They are unaware test subjects for newly learned recipes. I would not call myself a gourmet cook because my emphasis is on good and fresh and not a lot sauces. I smoke the trout I catch and they are in high demand. I'v produced other smoked meats like bacon and ham and my Canadian Bacon is especially good. I like to explore the outdoors and travel as often as I can fishing, rockhounding and fossil finding. I'v made seui seki, a type of Japanese Bonsai from naturally shaped stones. I am planning trips to Italy and Turkey. My son and I are also planning a fishing trip to Alaska. I fill some of my time with lapidary arts including, jewelery making, metals casting and stone polishing. I especially like designing and producing small sculptures and dioramas with gold, silver and semi-precious stones. I made top end jewelery for friends in special Egyptian motifs. I enjoy painting in oils and watercolor. I'm not a great fan of television or casinos but I will watch the History, Discovery and Science channels. I am a very curious individual and enjoy reading and learning. I like to cook when I have someone to cook for. I enjoy tinkering and will attempt to produce objects either I cannot afford or need improvement. Before I dispose of a broken appliance or other item I will attempt to fix it. I hold the exclusive patent and copyrights on "Wooley's Bag of Worms" (You need to ask). This product netted me some good investing income. I was employed in defense electronics which took me around the world twice. I'v traveled to Australia, the Near East, Far East, Western Europe, Scandinavia, South America and Africa. A relaxing afternoon for me is a latte in a bookstore. I loose myself in book stores. I enjoy movies particularly adventure, slice em & dice em, science fiction, foreign movies and period movies. One of my favorites is The Kingdom of Heaven followed by Dogma. I do not normally attend theaters. I had too many bad experiences with unruly patrons. I enjoy eating out especially in San Francisco where I can get Turkish food. I worked in Den Haag in Holland.
I am a good cook, good friend, and lntelligent
