I'm a retired rogue who wants to express his views on life, the universe, and everything. (Thank You Douglas Adams)
Interests: Writing;reading; observing odd behavior; performing odd behavior; World and American History(although there is not future in it);family history; Sports in small doses.

Favorite Movies:To Kill a Mockingbird;Star Wars 4-6;Ben Hur; The Grapes of Wrath; Inherit the Wind; Star Trek 2, 4, 6; In The Heat of the Night; The Wizard of OZ; The School of Rock; King Kong all versions; The Lord of the Rings Trilogy; Too Many Others Too Mention.

Favorite Music:The Beatles (dated myself there a wee bit); any music regardless of genre that I determine to be "good." It has to have a good beat, lyrics I can understand and that mean something significant. This leads me to Rock and Roll from the 50s to today; contemporary music from the 20s through the current year; Classical music that is profound especially Beethoven Bach and Mozart.

Favorite Books:To Kill a Mockingbird (better than the movie); It's easier to list authors:
Jules Vern
Edgar Rice Burroughs
Robert Jordan (he died on me)
Terry Goodkind (except the end book
Frank Baum
Kurt Vonnegut
Orson Scott Card
(A bit heavy on the Sci-Fi and Fantasy but we must all cope somehow)
William Shakespeare
