I am 66 years of age and have been happily married for 38 years. We have 2 wonderful children, jim and Grace. I graduated from Drake Law School in 1970. I practice by myself in a plaintiff's trial firm in Davenport, Iowa Backpacking, canoeing, and wildlife photography are my recreational passions. I have been investing in stocks since 1970 when I purchased Dictaphone with a student loan. I was sent to Viet Nam. When I returned most of my investment was gone, but from this loss and many more losses, an investment philosophy developed.
