I am just a little bit older than rock-n-roll and have had a life-long interest in most topics scientific. I remember watching the first satellites streak across the sky, but sometimes can not remember where I put my car keys. I believe in Family, God, Country and your right to have a different opinion (though why anyone would choose to be wrong I can not understand). I like horror fiction (I have written a bit) and I cry at happy endings. Humor gets me through the day, but, at 57 years old, I find fewer things funny than I did at 19. I never feel more relaxed than when I am at the eyepiece of my telescope accompanied by my faithful observing companion Jessie.
