Personal Information

I teach in a small high school in rural Oregon and have a summer/weekend place on the Oregon Coast. Of course, at night, I put up pictures and entries for the CVHS webpages for 1963 - 1993, just to fill the void ;-)
Comments: I am semi-retired now, teaching only two classes a day and running the District website, so I'm only at school from 7:45 to 2:30, instead of 7:30 to 5:00. I volunteer time helping teachers and students with computers, calligraphy, and anything else. [January 1, 2016]
compulsive reading, writing a daily 1000-word blog on science and history, walking 2-5 miles each day so that I can KEEP walking.
hard science fiction, science, calligraphy, photography, teaching in retirement
Baroque and Celtic
NOVA, H2 Channel, NatGeo, Smithsonian. But on PBS RADIO, I like Philosophy Talk, Car Talk, Prairie Home Companion, The Moth, This American Life, and Radio Lab. I'm much more regular on listening to those than watching TV shows.
S.M. Stirling series in Nantucket 1230 BC and Oregon, post "Change". Also, Poul Anderson's "The High Crusade". For non-fiction, Jared Diamond's books.
Where there's a will, there's a won't.

You live and learn, or you don't live long.

I dream of a society where a chicken can cross the road without its motives being questioned.
