We are settling in Seattle, WA. We have in the past run waste vegetable oil in a Winnebago LeSharo straight from the grease traps behind restaurants (always gathered with permission and respect), because we had it converted by the great people at greasel.com [now goldenfuelsystems.com]. We gave away and left the Winnebago in Arizona in order to get my son to the Redwoods (a very magical journey). We used the Fire Drums event near Santa Cruz, CA to give us impetus to make the journey in a timely manner.
I am involved with Intentional Communities (www.ic.org), Linux (especially development of children's educational software) (debian.org is my current favorite --- although ubuntu.com is beginning to impress me, and I'm working on edubuntu), Project Gutenberg (gutenberg.org), the Center for Sex Positive Culture (http://www.sexpositiveculture.org/) and following where spirit leads me to be.
I also have a complex HowTo out there on creating a Secure Boot CD system using VPN and custom linux boot cds...it's at http://www.tldp.org/HOWTO/text/Secure-BootCD-VPN-HOWTO if you are interested in such things.
I am that I AM.
I am loving, joyous, and helpful
What I noticed first was your GREAT laugh! Oh, and how strong your hands are.
Movies I enjoy on occasion and two of my favorites are Princess Bride and Stardust...I like many others and I still probably haven't watched as many as you...I don't tend to watch TV and tend to avoid news programs due to the negative psychological affects of so much badness in the world, I mean how often is it reported all the wonderful things that are GOOD and RIGHT about the world...
Music...my tastes range all over...I can't say that there is any genre that I have no interest in. That said I tend to soft rock (mostly from the eighties), country (blame it on my roots and my firefalls :), new age spiritual and healing things, and lots of alternative. My current favorite artists (happen to be people I have at least meet in person ;) are SJ Tucker (www.skinnywhitechick.com--go buy her stuff it's worth it), and The Wetspots (www.wetspotsmusic.com)
Food--love to eat...allergic to pork and MSG so I avoid both of those...Oversensitive to many spices that are considered hot (jalapeno, habanero, cayenne, etc.) and at least one that most don't consider hot (cumin) so I seldom eat spicy food. Have been a vegetarian twice in my life and currently am not. Foods I really enjoy include traditional smoked salmon, quiche [and I make a decent one], lasagna [firefall's is awesome--someday I'll get her teach me how she does it], peanut butter cookies, chocolate chip cookies, fresh baked bread, cantaloupe, black cherries, pizza. Like music, though, it really depends on my mood and what I'm doing [what I dance to is often different from what I will converse to or what I would like to play on my various instruments] what will be enjoyable to me.
Six things I love in my life are:
My wife, firefalls My daughter My son My body My mind My many senses
In light of these definitions, I am interested in dating and have at least one relationship that I would classify as between dating and goofing in the romantic arena. I am definately building friendships and goofing as much as fits into my life, and I am ecstatic to celebrate my life-partnership with firefalls on a weekly or more often basis. I would be delighted to find a boyfriend and/or girlfriend to fit into my world.
