From my blog: Iím a political junky, I work wood, cook, paint (not much lately), do photography, write about art,life, motorcycles, and wood. I fly airplanes for a living. For a guy that grew up on a West Texas dirt farm in the 40ís and 50ís, Iím OK. I donít have much use for normal male activities like hunting and sports although I can scratch and ogle with the best of Ďem. I know which fork to use most of the time, for the most part I can get along in polite society. Iíve seen more of the world than most people have and I think I can say things about it that may be interesting.
