My self-summary
Renaissance Man.
What I’m doing with my life
Running a small Start-Up company while maintaining my job as sausage inspector at meat packing plant. It's not my official title but very comical and pretty descriptive! Ha ha ha My stripper name!
I’m really good at
Brewing beer, woodcraft and science.
The first things people usually notice about me
my beard
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Ah books, I love real books and haven't found the urge to kindle them. When I was a kid it was The Red Badge of Courage by Stephen Crane. If Harry Potter was around it would have been my favorite for sure. High School I was enthralled with all things Tolkien. In college all I really had time for was Penthouse Letters. he he he At the time I had also read about the legends of surfing and dreamt of southern California in the late 40's and early 50's. In my adult life I mostly read historically accurate fiction. I went through a Louis L'Amour phase (incredibly well read man). I went through a nautical fiction phase. Dewey Lamdin is my favorite. Nautical history I like Nathaniel Philbrick and highly recommend In The Heart of the Sea. It's the true story of Moby Dick.

Television: I'm a big fan of BBC shows like Black Adder, Red Dwarf, Father Ted, and of course Dawn French in Vicar of Dibley, The Young Ones, etc... The directors Graham Lineham, Richard Curtis and Ben Elton are hilarious! I don't have a TV so I watch old Sci-fi on Netflix. Stargate etc...

Movies: I'll watch anything from Apocalypse Now to Bridget Jones Diary as long as it's not way too sensitive, overly violent or a musical. The only musical I will watch, well, there aren't any. Only things that come close are True Stories from The Talking Heads and This Is Spinal Tap. I love catching up on good old movies. I even enjoy the Charlie Chan movies (Warner Oland only he he).

Music: Good bluegrass, Old country (old old old, pre 1980's), alternative rock (I miss YROCK on WXPN lots), Sex Pistoles, Clash, Led Zepplin Since I've Been Loving You and No Quarter, all Bob Marley except the overplayed songs, Ska new and old ska, 50's classics, surf music, classical, some jazz for sure! but most importantly, Acid Rock like that which was played at Woodstock from Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, Grace Slick, Carlos Santana etc...
Food: In this order: Sushi, Thai, STEAK, Seafood, Mexican, Italian, Chinese, I love most vegetarian food, I just don't eat it much anymore because most of the prepared stuff has gluten in it. No no's; sausages ( only bangers rarely ), I will never eat another hot dog or bologna, pepperoni and most hamburgers. Having worked in the food industry most of my professional life, I will only eat meats from whole foods or somewhere that I trust.

BEER LIST: Youngs Double Chocolate Stout. Yards Brawler. Philadephia Brewing Kilty Lifter. Salvatore Dopplebock. Wolavers Organic Brown Ale. Fullers 1845. Wells Bombardier. And of course my own homebrews Raindrop Pale Ale being the one most people liked.
Six things I could never do without
1. Good pair of shoes
2. Hawaiian shirt (wool shirt in winter)
3. Books and libraries
4. Sand paper
5. Sand
6. Ocean
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Beer and Wood. How much I miss good pizza or even a good mac and cheese. How we humans are doing a good job of hurting Mother Nature and the ocean and how a nice day at the beach can alleviate such stresses like global warming and missing mac and cheese.
On a typical Friday night I am
Hopefully bed at 10 PM or sooner! Saturday night, different story.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I so scored Oscar the Grouch on the Which Sesame Street Muppet Are You test! But I tailored the answers because he's my favorite. I'm so inside his head! I also wanted Judge Judy to scream at me.
You should message me if
You should message me if you have one day a week or every two weeks and are up for, but not limited to: hiking, canoeing, camping, biking and then are into getting some sushi then perhaps beer later! Of course stimulating conversation accompanies all these things, or none of these things!
The two of us
