My self-summary
Being on this site has helped me in varied ways. I'll still not be navel-gazing ad-infinitem on this profile. If you're so inclined, drop me a line and we'll write. Cheers!
What I’m doing with my life
Carpenter, plumber, electrician, problem solver for hire--tune your satalite dish with a compass, paint stick and cell phone. I love stone henge tech.
I’m really good at
I seem to be a bit of an autodidact. In order to keep things green, I repair and remodel old houses. I have found that over the years I've needed to learn many trades. I enjoy cooking and it seems that my friends enjoy eating what I put out. It's been 12 years since I've not BBQed the Thanksgiving turkey. I love downhill skiing and must be fairly good at it since I haven't broken any bones since I was 13.
The first things people usually notice about me
I've never asked anyone this. Maybe I'll begin a personal poll. Here's a thought: dogs and cats seem to love me...go figure. Whoa! I just saw pics of
myself on Memday wknd. Pretty shaggy albeit happy. Face hurt from laughing so much.

Music: I've shared and recieved a lot of music-so much that I may never hear it all. John Zorn just blew me away. Kodo from the Yoshida Brothers
on Sunday morning with tea.
The six things I could never do without
My curly headed fruend, Coffee, a BBQ to play with,skiing, great storytellers, purposeful work.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Current events, not falling off this ladder, where to get a good bowl of ramen, pho or gumbo for lunch... My role as Boss/Dad to my employee.
On a typical Friday night I am
Up for grabs.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Well, I don't kiss and tell. What's between me and Thee stays that way from my end. I'll happily dig around in your stuff With you, But not with a third party.
You should message me if
You want to learn more, or just want to chew the fat--life is full of it and it needs to be rendered.
