Seeker and Explorer.
Earth guy living a conventional lifestyle. Totally enthusiastic about life. Into pushing boundaries and exploring the fringes of our existence (OK, well when I have spare time).
Focused. Work really hard. Very serious about things I need to be serious about.
Sometimes like to question that status quo. Being a rebel is sometimes a good thing.
I try to be good person. Usually I am.
Sometimes I give off a lot of raw energy.
Goodness and light rule. And curiosity and honesty and generosity and openness and simplicity.
"In wildness is the preservation of the world." (Henry David Thoreau)
"Carpe Diem." (Some wise ancient philosopher who spoke Latin and had a white beard)
Wild imagination. If you want someone to create really cool alternate universes, I'm the guy. Imagination sometimes needs to be subdued with metaphorical tranquilizer darts.
I like wild places. I think swamps are a great metaphor for life. I'm into deep thoughts and whimsical trivia. I'm a really fast keyboarder.
I was a kid once.
Some of my friends say I am a lousy driver. Sometimes I forget to tie my shoes in the morning. Otherwise, I got my act together.
I think laughter is a good thing.
Ask me anything you want.

The more sand has escaped from the hourglass of our life, the clearer we should see through it. (Sentiment has been ascribed to Machiavelli, although others have claimed credit for it)
We shall not cease from exploration, and the end of all our exploring will be to arrive where we started and know the place for the first time. (T.E. Eliot)
I was reading Suzanne Fields' syndicated column this morning. She talked about a recent Annenberg Public Policy Center research study about the knowledge American adults have about their government.Sat, February 21, 2015 - 12:46 PM permalink - 0 comments
The study found that almost two-thirds of the respondents couldn't identify the three branches of government, and a third couldn't even name one. Twice as many respondents could name one of those TV judges (like Judge Judy) than the name of the Chief Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.

People bought more than 40 million boxes of chocolates.
Hallmark had more than 1,300 different kinds of Valentine's Day cards available.
Americans sent more than 110 million roses.
And the origins of V-Day?
Legend has it that it's based on the ancient Pagan festival of Lupercalia, a Roman fertility festival. It was "Christianized" around the 5th century in honor of St. Valentine, whose identity is murky since there were at least three different "Saint Vale... read more
Trivia Fact: California has hosted the most super bowls (5). Green Bay and Kansas City played Super Bowl I, and Green Bay won it. In 2006, a 30-second ad spot cost a cool $2.5 million. Today it's a good $4.5 million.Sun, February 1, 2015 - 11:50 AM permalink - 0 comments

Typos have happened as long as the written word has existed.Sun, January 25, 2015 - 4:23 PM permalink - 0 comments
Like this typo from the 1600s. The writer was documenting the Ten Commandments. One word inadvertantely left out. I guess the British civil and religious authorities were pissed off.
No idea what happened to the adultery business after publication.

Re: Mixology (in Tribal Lounge) Hmmm. Sounds interesting. Personally, I can't get into the idea of chocolate in an alcohol drink, but to each his/her own ... :)
