I work as programmer/analyst in municipal government. I was married for 21 years but am getting divorced. I built my own stock index when I was 17. It did well. I was enamored. I am 55 now and it still holds a good deal of interest for me. I play drums as a hobby. I've done that since a pre-teen. I have 4 drum sets in the 3200 sq ft house I bought from my marriage. I like to cook very much and am interested in restaurants. I did all shopping and cooking in my marriage. My longest and most deep seated love is philosophy and logic. I love the philosophy of math and science. I have a theory of epistemology I hope to get published some day. I taught my self calculus using an HP programmable calculator when I was 20. I studied philosophy, logic, math and writing in collage. I have the most wonderful and lovable girlfriend who is slightly older. She is very smart but like me does not have a degree. She earns 30% more than me, too, but works on an Indian reservation to do so. We love to camp, hike and scramble.
