My self-summary
Profile Re-Work: I was rereading what I had previously put here, and found it to be rather dry and stale, and probably overly wordy. So I'll attempt to be a bit more concise and to the point. But I make no promises.

So, a little bit about me. Well, I'm 40, divorced and a father of two awesome young men, ages 11 and 7. I enjoy a number of different activities, from cycling to long drives, to short day trips. My youngest plays football, and there is nothing like watching your child on the football field, putting his heart and soul into the game.

I suppose you could say that I'm also a bit of a history nerd, nut, buff, whatever euphemism floats your boat. Exploring the past, especially that of your local community is a very interesting and rewarding experience, it takes the dusty academic quality and gives it dimension.
What I’m doing with my life
Exploring the world around me, whether it be across the street or on the other side of the globe. Our world is a fascinating place full of stories and legends craving to be written down for posterity. Fortuneately, one does not always need a passport in which to travel, one merely needs to have the creative spirit and willingness to learn new things. Oh and Google helps too.
I’m really good at
Their are a lot of things I am good at, I'm really good at writing short stories, if only i could finish them. Ive been known to write a few lines of verse from time to time, whether it be good or bad, I'll let you be the judge.
The first things people usually notice about me
To be quite honest, I have no idea.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
The written word is not a lost art form, as some would have us think. It has merely evolved, and in my humble opinion is quite alive and thriving. That being said, there are so many good things to read, but im partial to historical works and memoirs. People's lives fascinate me, their thoughts, dreams, failings and aspirations all culminate into a work of art formed in words.

Ive not been to a movie in some time, I think the last one i saw was Walter Mitty.
Im rather picky when it comes to TV shows, as i dont watch a lot of it. But I do enjoy Downton Abbey, Call the Midwife and Mr. Selfridge on PBS.

I've recently discovered a program on BBC America that I can't get enough of " The Musketeers"
The six things I could never do without
Cell Phone (neccessary evil of the modern world)

I'm not a budhist, but i do think we cling to 'things' a bit to much, there is beauty in simplicity.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where the future will take me, and who will be a part of that future. What is she like, what are her hopes and dreams.

There is so much more that i could put in this little space, however, if I did that, what would we talk about.
On a typical Friday night I am
Usually spent at home reading one thing or another.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I suppose if you want to call it a "private thing", I loathe secrets. I much prefer openess and honesty above all else.
You should message me if
Well, first off...you should messege me if you want to..seems simple enough. In addition you should also messege me if you believe your smile lights up a room, smiles are like rays of the sun..they warm everyone around them, and also you enjoy just the sillyness of banter between two people
