I remember when I was a kid and really really wanted a tape recorder so I could record stuff. In the fullness of time my Dad got one and it was with great excitement I took it into my room, ready to say profound things. I laid it on the bed, pick up the microphone, and turned it on. Then after a few minutes I turned it off again. I sat there for a bit and turned it on again. Then I turned it off. It took a few times before I realized that I had nothing to say, even to myself. I’m hoping that will not be the case here. The internet is a powerful forum that seems to be full of crackpots. Those of us who would like to try and make positive changes find ourselves…suddenly speechless. Anyone who knows me knows I am NOT a man of few words so I will try to be concise and insightful.
I am a mechanical engineer, it’s not just what I do it’s a part of who I am. I love machines and the way things work.
I work for the National Radio Astronomy Observatory, on the largest moving structure on land, the GBT (http://www.gb.nrao.edu/) .
I am a writer of short stories and unfinished novels. I hope someday to be an writer of a finished novel but that seems like a long way off.
I live in the mountains of West Virginia and like to fish and hunt in my spare time.
