I like: Asia, the Middle East, N. Africa and Europe. Not much time in South America though. (I'm open to that. I promise I have no prejudices against a couple of weeks in Buenos Aires!)
I owned a manufacturing business in the mid-90s. It was stuck in the midwest outside Chicago -- but was connected to the world because of our exports. Some of the travel was for fun or the USN.
Cities are important to me. Human history is centered around them for a reason. Some I love: Singapore, Beirut, New Orleans, Cairo, Budapest, Chicago, Venezia, Gaeta, Seoul, London and (of course) Annapolis. Currently I am in in Chicago, Boston and New York a lot (too much?).
I am financially, mentally and emotionally stable. Own a house in the historic district, a great boat on the Bay and enjoy the smaller urban life of the Ancient City.
I am looking for an opportunity to start simply without great expectations either way.
Using male intuition (yes it exists!) to solve problems. And having experiences to back it all up.
OK, only my opinion!
Movies: Recently, I have also found exploring the dark recess of Comcast On Demand to find indie films to be productive. (Damn you corporate America. You may be building a product I actually like for once!)
Music: WQXR, WWOZ, KCRW, WWOZ. Do you really need anything else? Burn the CDs and go online.
Food: My favorite food is free food (a Navy expression!)
-- My iPhone (generally sorry)
-- My sailboat (not sorry!)
-- A good nights sleep (not sorry at all, too many Navy years)
-- An animal companion around (not the human kind)
-- Am I at six yet?
btw - I will try to respond to everyone who takes the trouble to write! Often I travel, so please be patient.
