With people, I am a very sensitive and caring person. I try to be kind and honest with everyone. I am quite open-minded and tolerant. I know I’m not perfect and I try to be patient with others' imperfections.
With money, I believe that “a penny saved is a penny earned” but I also believe that money is like manure…if it's spread around, good things can happen; if it just sits in a pile, it stinks.
For myself, laughter is part of who I am. I’ve found that a good sense of humor is very important in getting thru life’s tough times. I cherish good friendships. And I love kids and animals. (I'm a big one myself, kid that is, not animal.)
In a relationship I work at maintaining good communication. That means listening as well as talking. I'm always willing to share my thoughts and feelings...just ask. My focus is finding true love. I'm more into being steady, reliable, and cradling my loved one tenderly than being a playboy. My loved one will find that I will reach out and touch her hand as she simply walks by. I’ve often felt that one can’t really be sure if they’ve found a true partner in a relationship until they’ve had an argument. “Partners” work together to resolve conflicts rather than to just win a fight.
My job as a planner involves land protection. My job as an uncle is to share love, wisdom, laughter, and adventure with my nieces.
Speaking of adventure, I can be quite adventurous. I've I hiked down the Grand Canyon and up Mount Washington. I like to kayak and I've tried rock climbing a few times.
Finally, I never stop learning.
Movies: Comedies: A Fish Called Wanda, It's a Mad, Mad World,
Adventures in Babysitting, Young Frankenstein, Blazing Saddles, Take the Money and Run ... to name a few.
Sci-fi: I like most sci-fi but Alien was the best.
Adventure: Indiana Jones
Music: No one favorite. Most anything is okay except for rap and country.
Food: In no particular order, Thai, Mexican, Indian, Italian, and Canadian (kidding!)
But since life is more than material things, I could never do without a hope, a sense of purpose, and of course...love.
