My self-summary
Right now I'm bored, so I'm baking gingerbread cake. It will have vanilla icing when done.
Originally from back east. I am somewhat on the shy side. Am a good listener, I also sit, fetch, rollover, and liked to have tummy rubbed. Oh, wait, that was my dog. I retired from the Navy in 1992, and have been all over the mediterrean/north atlantic (14 countries). As well as 30 of the 50 states. After 20 yrs in the Navy, traveling isn't at the top of my list any more. A jack of all trades.
What I’m doing with my life
Presently in marine time security. Also a freelance PC tech. I build, upgrade and repair PCs as a hobby. .
I’m really good at
Recently got into baking as a hobby. I make cakes, cookies, muffins, brownies. Rarely eat what I make, give it all away. Always looking for a new victims; I mean, test subject for my recipes. I can cook most of the basics, but love crispy pepper bacon. I make a mean ham and cheese omelet. Have been a computer nerd since 1970. Been a camera enthusiast for years, mainly scenic black and white, though I've done a few weddings/birthdays as a freelance photographer. Recently got my 1st digital camera. I'm learning the ins/outs of that technology. I can paint just about anything as long as it is gray (haze gray, deck gray, battleship gray).
The first things people usually notice about me
I'm short, bald and overweight and have a warped sense of humor.

And just to get it out in the open, with the exceptions of PKA Full Contact Karate and the finals of World Cup Soccer, I don't watch any sports. College or pro, I get bored out of my mind.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Addicted to reading, will read just about anything. Scifi, mystery, historical, romance (yes, romance). Music just as varied - classical - favorite album - Holts - The Planets, pop, rock, classic rock, opera - Charlotte Church, all jazz (except Dixieland). No rap or hip-hop. My all time favorite band is and always will be The Moody Blues, I got to see them in concert at the Prince Albert Hall in London.
Six things I could never do without
This is kind of a dumb question. But the standard answers:
Chocolate for my baking needs
My cameras (both digital and film), thou finding good film is getting tougher to find.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Thinking of new recipes to try out and what ingredients I'm going to need. How to modify it to make it my recipe.
Also why everybody claims to like story tellers in music but nobody mentions one of the greatest story teller bands ever: The Moody Blues. Almost never hear them on classic rock stations either.
On a typical Friday night I am
Sorry, but I normally work from 2pm to 10pm on Fridays.
