I was raised in NJ just across the river from NYC. I spent 30+ years moving and travelling all over the country and world for work as an engineer. I retired in 1993 and travelled around the USA in a RV. In 1996, I bought a great little house in Frostproof FL and I'm here until I get called to the Great Gourmet Kitchen in the sky. I have several hobbies that keep me very busy. It's a pleasant change to be doing things that I want to do instead of what someone tells me to do.
