I am a life-long observer or the world. I have been in many positions, over a large amount of time, and have never, except for one short period of my life, held only one job. At full-time positions, including time in the military, I managed to hold part-time employments, so I have managed to have many careers of all types. I have been everything from a small community peace officer, to a chaplains assistant, from a construction engineer to a clerk. Much of my life I was told I was inadequate and unable to learn, and I have overcome that to become a somewhat educated in consulting. I have been told I am gifted as a psychologist, and can only say I feel I have been called to help people. I worked until 2001, when I was officially retired from law enforcement due to many illnesses. I am attempting to help as many as possible in the time I have left. I am not as smart as some think, however I am more intelligent than others believe. I am just a man who wants to help others, and leave something for my family. I enjoy psychology and philosophy, and have used both for many years in my various careers, both as an employee helping friends, and as a supervisor, boss, and business owner helping employees. Lets learn and little something and have some fun on the way. Thanks everybody.
Anything by Tom Clancy, W.E.B. Griffin, Proust, and a host of others.
Mash, Mister Roberts, South Pacific, The Great Santini, and Dragnet, both versions.
I listen to both kinds, country and western, lol. But seriously, I am that guy, who rides through town listening to Hank Williams, Johnny Horton, Patsy Cline, or a host of other legends. I do not enjoy many of the modern music crazes, such as breaking guitars on stages, or spraying water on the audience. I prefer more vintage music to the new kids and am extremely outspoken on the subject of what constitutes good music. I have been known to be seen enjoying a Glenn Miller or Tommy Dorsey sound, and then switching back to Hank Williams, and on to Whitesnake or the Brothers Doobie or Group Abba. I assume one would call me eclectic.
Too many to mention, However, most of the notable quotes from His Holiness, Pope John Paul 2 are among the top. I also enjoy Confucius. Why do they call it common sense, when it is so uncommon-Senator Fred Thompson.
Favorite TV Shows
Of all time: MASH, Dragnet, Adam-12, Sanford and Son, and more recently House and NCIS.
Collecting coins, stamps, and nearly anything interesting. Music and television are major interests, and well as great literature. I enjoy nearly anything fun. Life is short, so slide on the ice!
I am, in a nutshell, a collector of the odd and unusual. I like pottery, glass, miniatures, die cast, and too many others to list. I am not the best, nor am I the worst. Lets have a good time, and hopefully learn a little along the way.
