Professional Forensic and Medical Anthropologist. Historic Archaeologist (17th-century Europe, and the American Mountain Men era!) Archival addict. Science and technical writer. Lobbyist.
Prefer my History NEAT, not decorated in rumor, razzle-dazzle, racism, wishful thinking, or tall tales.
Amazed and saddened at the Dumbing Down of America.
Very annoyed that my Wanderlust is currently curtailed by squeaky brakes.
Bad habits - Reading too many journals, searching for answers to questions no one cares about, accepting people as they are, and being too curious about everything.
Don't watch the Telly anymore...unless it's tuned in to Formula 1 racing, the Baltimore Orioles, or the Baltimore Ravens...or something on the History or Science Channels.
Mea culpas to the nice people who invite me to join their internet gaming sites. They take up too much space on my hard drive, so please don't be offended when I don't accept.
Love to travel, love to fly, love to sail, love trains, love Tall Ships. Fond of the scent of soil at dawn, the ocean, and cold winter nights when you can actually see the night sky! Love old maps, and discovering small, out-of-the-way museums.
Love Music- ALL TYPES! Gregorian, Baroque, Classical, Ethnic, Latin, Eclectic, Jazz, English Music Hall, Opera, Sondheim, Broadway, Punk, World, Celtic, BAGPIPES, Middle Eastern, Far Eastern, Rock n' Roll! Gilbert and Sullivan, anyone? There's a Howdy Do!
PASSIONATE about history, archaeology, how the Brain works, what triggers DNA sequences to flip and switch, and why do psychotropic meds drain patients of D3? Is dark matter really composed of positrons? Yes, I really DO lead an exciting life!
If you're nosy and simply HAVE to know my birthday..it's still once a year. :) I'm a citizen, but was not born in the USA. (Proud to be Brummie!)
Umm..my favorite color is red, not fond of pink.
What's my Sign? I never understand why people ask me this. It's red and round, and says ALTO. My other sign hangs on my front door, and says "No Solicitors."
That's all, folks!
