I was born in Australia, but raised and educated in the United States. The day I left Australia at age 2, was the very day my wife was born on the other side of the world. Thus the two of us began an 18,000 mile, 20 year journey to finally meet at a small college in upstate New York on Friday the 13th of December, (the luckiest day of my life). After college I became a computer programmer; mainframes at first, then minis and finally PC networks. Before I knew it though, I was fixing hardware and making a living building computer networks. But, aside from my wife, teaching was my first love, so I retired at 55 and went back to college to become a high school computer science teacher. Although born on the other side of the world from Plymouth, I have 4 Mayflower Ancestors and belong to the Society of Mayflower Descendants, Sons of the American Revolution and the Order of Founders and Patriots of America. Retired from teaching now, my wife and I live in Florida with our 3 rat terriers.
