Personal background
Bonjour tout le monde.
I am 57. I live in Wyoming. I administer money and do policy analysis..... ugh, very boring. I am single, a
native Californian, and a damn genius.

I love stargazing and thinking about the scope and magnificance of the universe.
I want to get a telescope so that I can spy on Jupiter's red spot.

Besides having children, the greatest thing that has happened to me is having
Hubble's pics online.
Thoughts about SETI and SETI@home
I'm no Treky. I know we are made of star stuff. We come from the universe and
we will return to it. The concept of outer space is so much more comforting than
the idea of a God. Besides, he doesn't really care about mankind anyway.

When asked, "What have your studies revealed about God?" The great naturalist,
JBS Haldane remarked, "An inordinate fondness for beetles."

I think that there are other cultures out there and that we have been visited.
However, if other civilizations are so advanced that they can travel light years
across unimaginable distances, do they think of us as we think of cattle, or
sheep, or other so called "lower" life forms? I believe that others are
studying us as we do microbes, with no more intent of communicating with us
than we have of conversing socially with a cow.

But, there is probably a match for us out there, too. A planet with people or
life forms of some type who are also interested in finding others as much as we
are. Striking up a conversation with them would be just wonderful.

I'm no scientist, but I admire people who are. Aside from Nova, where I get my
science info, being a small part of Seti makes me feel that I can do something
important, too.
