About Me

CURRENT MISSION

to make a better ome for my daughter who live 2000miles away; to help elect Obama

ABOUT ME

I am presently married to a lovely lady of the Jamaican persuasion and the natural father of 4 girls (now women). Rachel, our youngest, is a young lady with Downs Syndrome who has taught me about the possibilities in life and the Steiner community in which she lives. We still own a successful Massage Therapy clinic but it runs mostly by itself.

PHILOSOPHY

smile a lot; look for things to respect in other people; Saroyan's preface to Time of Your Life (look it up); Try to do good but at lest try not to do harm.

We hosted a young Hungarian couple who complained about the "gypsy problem". We hosted an Israeli army officer who said that 100 Arabs at the bottom of the sea was a "good beginning" We hosted 2 young women who had just graduating at the top of their highschool class in Munich Germany. They raised all kinds of hell at the school as part of their valedictory speech.
