My self-summary
I am an inventor / designer with the actual ability to put it all into action. So there! This all sounded better the first time but this web page ate my whole first draft, and silly me didn't copy it at the crucial moment....

K, so, addendum. If you want to 'like' me, and you would like me to know the source of that expression of affection, please just send me a note.
with a smile...;)
What I’m doing with my life
Building up the bricks that will eventually be my monument
Making my dream come true.
Riding our my last 15-20 of my career doung the thing I started on the path to do. Creating my vision instead of just talking about it.
Oh and

Sailing....
I’m really good at
Making special paintbrushes for picky artists...
Diagnosing complex integrated systems.. designing things and making them and using
Delivering technology to creative persons without the skills to do it themselves.

And so on.
The first things people usually notice about me
That I am tall, big and smart. Usually in that order.
But soon after they figure out that I am nice too.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
Books: Hero of Our Time, Keep the River on the Right, Dragon Tattoo Trilogy, anything by Pat O'Brien, Farewell to Arms, Sisters Brothers, The Virginian. And so many more

Food. I love most everything except Rice Pudding. I like Rare Steak, Pho, Oysters, Fettuccine Carbonara (traditional style that is), anything that swims. Vegetables, according to my mood.
The six things I could never do without
My space, a computer that is online, my little truck ( I hate to admit it), good food, plenty of good books in the cue, and my cat (although I know I will have to eventually...She is getting older)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Whatever it is I am trying to make next. That and how to make my grass greener... ( i don't have grass, btw)
On a typical Friday night I am
Most likely staying in and watching a film. Not going out as much these days as I did when I was a youngster..... But tempt me and I will respond.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
I am a delicate flower. So there
You should message me if
you want to meet a self described rugged delicate flower. An intellectual sensitive red neck wannbe.....:) ok well red neck is a bit harsh. But there you go...
Some might say an enigma.
