I grew up in the Mojave desert, in fact Disney shot "The Living Desert" in my back yard! Having squeaked through high school, I earned a BA in history with a psychology minor. It has made me a well rounded individual. Now I am a retired electrician who worked for the Bonneville Power Administration, US Dept. of Energy. I have worked in the electrical trades from apprentice to electrical contractor. Now retired I invest in muni and corporate bonds, dividend and value stocks, and various mutual funds.
