Personal Quote:
"Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience." — C.S. Lewis
My Interests:
Reading, taking pictures (I won't say "Photography," since it indicates an expertise I don't have!), spending time with my family.

Brandon Sanderson, Neil Peart, Patrick Rothfuss, Orson Scott Card.
Favorite Restaurants or Foods:
Total omnivore.

Grand Cayman, Disneyworld, anyplace someone else pays for.
Favorite Sports or Teams:
The ones my sons are on at the time.
Favorite Movies:
Lots of them. Most of them pure entertainment. Very few of critical acclaim in ANY way.
Favorite Board Games:
Whatever my kids laugh during while we play it.
Favorite Video Games:
Solitaire. Spider Solitaire. Oh, are those not video games? There's an app for that...
