My self-summary
I think I have a general positive and optimistic outlook on life. A balance between physically active and relaxed activities is ideal. Fun activities for me include, Skiing snow and water, Basketball, Green Bay Football, Bicycling, Kayaking, Motorcycles on and off road, Friend gatherings, Books, Hiking mountains, Blazers, Exploring new local places, Para Sailing, Jet Skiing, Travel, Concerts, Good movies, Beach walking, Comedy, Conversations and stories that make us laugh, Cooking an exceptional meal together, Flying, Sailing, Home / yard improvement, Making out with that someone great in a scenic location (both breathtaking), Gazing at the Cosmos (away from light noise.)

The best anyone can probably do in this space is create a snap shot of themselves and see if that sparks an interest.

Some things that I value that can't be bought-

One of the quotes that I like to help keep some perspective is, "Don't let perfect become the enemy of the good." -Voltaire

This made me smile recently-
"There's an awful lot of judging going on around here considering most all are drunks, sexual deviants and psycos....or a combination."?

"Am I crazy!? Or am I so sane that I just blew your mind!?" - Kramer
What I’m doing with my life
Well, what's been going on lately.......I like my job in mechanical engineering / project management and find it rewarding. I have made a point to go to more concerts in the last few years. Some of the memorable shows were U2, The Shins, Snow Patrol, Bruce Springsteen, Beck, Deathcab, The Who, Civil Twilight, Avett Brothers, Keb Mo, Coldplay, Mat Kearney, Michael Franti, War on Drugs, Cake, Mazzy Star, Boxer Rebellion. Good music for me comes from a variety of genre's. Most of it for me lately comes from the alternative, indie, rock categories.

The comedy at the "Helium Comedy Club" has been really funny; I like to go there for the healing power of laughter on occasion. I have traveled much of the United States, including Hawaii and been to Canada and Mexico. I am planning a trip to western Europe soon. I still have a lot of adventures on the "bucket list" to complete.
I’m really good at
This sections content could so easily come accross as arrogant and cocky, my high end skills and attributes must be demonstrated and experienced. :-)
The first things people usually notice about me
I have not interviewed people about what they notice first about me.
This question is out of left field to me.
If I had to speculate, it could be my calm, commanding, Jedi like presence. :-)

I believe that most reality tv is a show case for the demise and decay of modern western civilization..

On a typical Friday night I am
Firday is a moving target for activities. Sometimes chilling at home with a movie. Sometimes out to dinner and or music with friends. Sometimes I get dehydrated at the end of the week and I need some ice in my whiskey.☺
As Sinatra used to say, "I feel sorry for people who don't drink, how they feel when they get up in the morning, that's as good as they'll feel all day."
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Private!? It won't be private for long on the world wide web! I once saw the movie, "The Notebook".
