My self-summary
I don't have the kind of membership that allows me to see "likes." So, if you want to say "hello" ... or more, then just send a message. Thanks!

Can i just say "i am a nice guy" and leave it at that? How about this - get to know me, and you decide. I will say this - i sometimes feel like those plate spinners who keep dozens of plates twirling around and around - let's see: there's work; kids; exercise; i love to write, but where is the time?; cooking; shopping; reading; trying to figure out how da Bears can win another super bowl -
What I’m doing with my life
Moving forward with my life -- raising my sweet girls part time - trying to figure out what's next in this incredible journey that we call life. Would enjoy meeting a good woman to join me in the stroll down the lane. What's a "good woman"? She's funny, has a sense of humor, intelligent, kind, thoughtful, honest, beautiful inside and out. what else? you can tell me if you want.
I’m really good at
being a friend -- finding happiness wherever it lurks -- cooking (right after college - 1st day i had a hot dog for dinner; 2nd day frozen dinner; 3rd day i decided i needed to learn how to cook - been cooking for years i really enjoy it - hope the folks that eat it do as well - so far they are all still alive, so that's a good sign) -- hopefully i am a good Dad - (i work hard at it) -- listening -- keeping the house clean (i know how to wash floors, clean toilets, do laundry, and get rid of all that fuzzy stuff under the beds) - grocery shopping - when i am tired and can't read or sleep, i am really good at flipping the channels and trying to watch a dozen shows at the same time - remembering birthdays -
The first things people usually notice about me
My eyes - quite blue. Oh, and people stop me all the time and ask me if i am Brad Pitt. Well, that's obviously not true, but i did have some nice young man stop me in Fields awhile back and tell me that i looked like John Wayne.
Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
I love all kinds of books, usually reading a few books at the same time - enjoy classic literature (i never read the Jungle, and i want to start it soon), love to re-read Shakespeare, summertime is great for mysteries, love reading bios and about history, books about religion(s) - so much has been done on the name of religion throughout our history that i find it fascinating to read about religions. I had a fellowship to the Univ of Chicago years ago and took a bunch of courses in the Divinity School. Read the entire New Testament, part of the Old, and a good chunk of the Koran. Ain’t what you learn in the Sunday Sermon, that’s for sure.
I enjoy all kinds of movies and music - my tastes are wide and eclectic. I enjoy a well acted and well made movie (or play), doesn’t matter that much what it’s about. I can enjoy the movie for the artistry behind it, even if I don’t’ like the story line. Music – Beethoven to the Beatles, Mozart to the Monkees, jazz, blues, reggae.
Food? I like it all. Italian, Asian, Indian, African, South American etc etc
Six things I could never do without
my kids
my siblings (from a family of eight)
a sunny day in the summer (hopefully with low humidity)
ok - i admit it, i do enjoy a nice glass of wine and/or a cocktail - (goes very well with the sunny summer day, also goes well on cold winter days, may as well throw in spring and fall to round things out)
I spend a lot of time thinking about
Where did we all came from? Fifteen billion years ago there was this this Big Bang - and out of that came me typing a message on computer that anyone on this earth can see. Pretty darn amazing i would say.
I also wonder how my children's lives will play out. I wonder how things get made and who makes them - i watch some tv show with my kids about how things are made - fascinating - i think about alot of things really - let's get together and we can think great thoughts together - i wonder if i will find a woman who will love me as much as i love her -
On a typical Friday night I am
hanging with my kids, and/or friends, relaxing after a week of going to the office fighting other people's fights
The most private thing I’m willing to admit
can't really say right now ....
You should message me if
you enjoy and embrace life, are happy (most of the time), you think about alot of things, and are just a really nice person who is willing to love and be loved in return - that's about it.
The two of us
