The one thing I am passionate about...
After my first wife of 15 years died, I raised my 2 boys pretty much on my own. Now that my children are off to college (UCSB & Cal Poly), I am eager to see them succeed. I love to travel and do so often. I like all types of music, but love the blues. I travel to Memphis (Beale Street) or to New Orleans a couple of times of year just to hang out at the blues clubs. Family and good friends are very important to me, and so is finding someone to share life and good times with. I am done with major drama in my life (I have had more than my share), and would like to just pretty much fly under the radar as far as that goes.
I typically spend my leisure time
I spend a lot of time on the beach. I like to walk on the beach, sometimes go down and build a fire at night (on the beach) with a glass (or bottle) of wine, even if I am alone. I have been known to fly off to Vegas on a whim. My boy's both play Rugby for their colleges, so I try to go to as many games as I can. Even the "Away" games. This can get tricky, but I try.
The most influential person in my life has been
Be respectful of yourself, and of others around you. I am a true believer in character, that is, doing the right thing even if no one is watching, or will ever know. I am certainly no saint, but I do try to be a good person.
The first thing people notice about me
Humm... I don't really know what other people notice about me. I will have to ask someone this question and get back to you.
The last book I read and enjoyed
I just finished every book John Lescroart ever wrote. I have really been into the court room drama phase lately. Not sure why, but there you go!
The three things which I am most thankful for
- My children
- My family
- My home (I love being able to listen to the waves crash while I go to sleep).
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me
Honestly, I don't know, or much care. I am a pretty regular guy, nothing flashy, nothing complex. But I love to laugh, have fun, and make others happy. But, I don't concern myself with who notices or not.

A little more about me
Blood type is O+I think that is the only question that hasn't been asked, so there you go. Now it's all out there!
