My self-summary
I'm a retired electrical engineer who worked in industry for many years as a researcher. Since retiring from my full tine job I've done some consulting and some high school tutoring. Both of these activities have died in recent year so that I'm living off social security and my investments.
What I’m doing with my life
Nowdays I'm living the life of a sometime retired hermit. I have a semi-rural home in upstate New York where I can look out my back windows and see how tall the corn is growing. Just taking care of the grass mowing is a full time job.

I own an airplane and use it to travel, to some extent. I often travel to New Hampshire to visit one of my sons and, on rare occasions, I fly to Florida or the west coast to visit relatives or friends.
I’m really good at
Fixing things. Being an electrical engineer has some advantages. There is rarely something that I can't figure out and repair, although these days the technology is really getting hard to understand. For example-My toaster, which is older than I am and was bought by my parents before I was born, is repairable and it still is functional. My clothes dryer was bought when I was 13 but I still use it. However, I'm not too sure that I could fix an HD-LCD television.
The first things people usually notice about me
They seem to think that I look younger than I am although when I look in the mirror I often wonder what they are talking about.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
My taste in literature runs the gamut from history to pulp fiction. I recently slugged through Stephen King's Dark Tower saga and before that I was on a WWII historical bent. I love to watch DVDs and my collection runs from "Lost Horizon" through "North by Northwest" to the "Alien" series. As far as food goes, I'm a comfort food person.
Six things I could never do without
My grandkids, my airplane, my two cats, a roof over my head, my car and my home engineering laboratory.
I spend a lot of time thinking about
My next long cross country flight. How I will go, what I will see and what I'll need to complete it safely.
On a typical Friday night I am
At home, enjoying my own simple cooking and watching a Netflix's DVD.
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
Absolutely nothing!
You should message me if
You have an interest in the companionship of a somewhat wierd but interesting guy. It would also help if you don't have a fear of flying in a general aviation aircraft.
