Tale of two cities

If you could split your time evenly between two places, and two places only, which would these be?

I would like to split my time between where I live now with my wife and near my daughter and grand children and three of my five sister and Miami Beach where my best friend Billy B lives, worked and retired. I think that it would be fantastic to spend a couple of months of the year in a totally different climate and environment a couple of times a year. I think that that would recharge my intellectual batteries and bring me back home fresh and ready to get back to work.


Saved by the bell

Tell us about a time when you managed to extract yourself from a sticky situation at the very last minute.

I have always had the ability to come up with or find solutions to problems when under pressure to come up with a fix. I don’t culture this or tempt fate if you will but I take it as a gift that if I need something that it will present itself when I need it and it always does. I have develop a reputation among friends and coworker as a go to resource guy who can usually come up  a place or name when it is needed in a pinch,


Because of the Night

Are you a night owl or are you the early bird? What’s your most productive time of day? When do you do your best work?


I do my best work in the early morning. I used to be a late nighter but that is a long time ago. I find that I do better if I get myself off to bed at a regular time and that get up at 6 in the morning and have an hour or so to do whatever I have planned.

Dust in the wind

It have never believed in bucket lists simple because I think that that is just another way for society to put one more burden on you. It seems to me that there are enough challenges and pressures and disappointments and demands in this world as it is without having a 1000 places you need to see  or 100 movies you need to see or 100 albums you need to hear before you die. My bucket list is simple. I just want to be here long enough to see that my wife is happy until I place her into the arms of Jesus with a smile of contentment on her face and in the meantime I just want to spread some sunshine and have some more fun and remind a few more people that life is good and God is good and things could be so much worse and that happiness and contentment are really about be happy with what you have.

Have you ever become obsessed with something? Tell us about something that captivates your attention like nothing else.


I am obsessed with steam punk which is a sub genre of science fiction in which history revolves around an era where coal is still king and mad science reign in the Victorian Age. I am read books about the time period. I have discovered and follow postings on several steam punk websites. I discovered a web comic strip, Girl Genius that I am now reading through and drawing image from. I hope to write and draw and graphic novel basic on information from the time. I find that as a continue to read and learn I continue to realize how much I do not know which is wonderful because it mean that I have so much more that I can explore and learn.

Life for me is very good !!

Butterfly, Cute, Pink, Girly, Sparkling

I have always loved butterflies. They seem so free and unencumbered.. I remember the play that become the movie with Goldie Hawn, “Butterflies are Free” about the teenaged blind boy who was trying to break the apron strings from his mother who I believe really loved him and just overly protective of him while he took her authorship of the Johnny Dark stories a exploitive as Christopher  took offense with his father over the Hundred Acre Woods Stories who invaded and compromised his son’s privacy and childhood. I also remember that song of my youth ” the elusive Butterfly of Love”. I remember how prominent a butterfly was in the book ” the silence of the Lambs.” I guess the butterfly would be a symbol of rebirth.

hat do I unwind?

I do several things that help me unwind at the end of the day. One of the first thing is to have dinner with my wife and share time with her and ask about her day and share her concerns. I like to spend time with her and than look at the local newspaper and look through the new of the day. I am currently following the story of the Melaysian alrliner that disappeared. It is truly a mystery but with the use of available technology the searchers are apparently closing in on the black boxes and hopefully we will soon have at least soon answers. I also like to spent an hour or so on facebook following the feed that has accumulated over the last 24 hours. Than back to watch a little tv with the wife, read a little out of the New Yorker that just arrived today and that brings another beautiful day to a close.
