My hobbies are many. Among
- My computer on which
I do all the usual stuff like spreadsheets, word processing and finances.
I also do a lot of 3D graphics using Ray Dream Studio 5.0, Bryce 2.0,
and Fractal Painter 5.0. You can check some of them out
- Pen and Ink drawing,
mostly pointalism. I've been selling prints of most of them and have
been lucky enough to have gotten Blue Ribbons at shows for all of them.
Occasionally I'm honored to have been asked to do gallary showings in
the area that I live in. Click here to see
- Making scale models.
I love to build scale models. I've been doing them since I was a kid.
I particularly like making scratch built wooden ship models. I was once
a member of the Washington Ship Model Society and am a Founder and Charter
Member of the Jacksonville Ship Model Society. Two of my models are
in the Jacksonville Maritime Museum (or rather there were two until
the case of one broke, so that ship is now in drydock). For more on
my models click here.
- Supporting Our Troops. I support our troops and the missions they have been dispatched to carry out. I will not tolerate the desicration of our Military Memorials. See some photos here
- Reading. I love reading
about history, old civilizations, archeology, astronomy, World War II,
mysteries, and self-help books.
- Traveling. I've traveled
all over the world with my family, the Navy and the company I used to
work for. I've lived in:
- Germany (3 years: 1947-'49)
