I am a happily married man to Susan for 38 years, the proud father of 4 children; Joe, Kelly, Peter and David and 3 and 1/2 grandchildren Emily, Abai, Zoey and one yet to be born and named. I care first and foremost about family, all else pales by comparison. I have worked hard at various jobs for 42 years, never got rich, famous or a "career" per se, but have managed to support (with Sue's help) a family of six with, I believe relative success. I care passionately about people, particularly the underdog, am very opinionated, love to write and debate (or as some would say argue), like to sing, dance read, have fun play, especially with my kids and grandkids, and i hope to use this site to express myself in words and occasionally photographs. Not really concerned if anyone reads this but am open to everyone and anyone doing so and expressing themselves too.
