Retired social studies teacher, a Mac addict, as others say, (Apple II+ days before Macs) but not an idiot. I use both Windows and Mac platforms. Computers (have a home LAN), collecting and exhibiting postage stamps, and writing are several of my hobbies. Active in computer and postage stamp collecting/exhibiting clubs, societies locally.
Helping wife with volunteer and church activities are important ways of sharing concerns about the less fortunate and/or developmentally disabled.
From time to time have a number of ideas about how to learn from history especially about how alien and human societies such as ours are best run.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I was a fan of science fiction in the 1950s and read Ray Bradbury's "Illustrated Man" among other classics constantly. I always felt that there were others "out there" and that someday we would communicate.
As a young person, I spent many summer, starry nights on our patio in a small rural mining community with my mother, a very kind, religious person and my father, a dedicated mining engineer talking about the heavens. SETI was the perfect vehicle for me to continue that quest about the stars and other life forms that God had created.
