Try to remain truthful. The power of truth never declines. Force and violence may be effective in the short term, but in the long run it’s truth that prevails. Being honest and truthful engenders trust and trust leads to friendship and a good reputation. Because we all need friends, honesty and transparency are a basic aspect of human nature.

A happy husband, father, and grandfather.  I learn far more from my children than I could ever teach them.  I've been saying that since they were toddlers, and it has only become more true over the years.  It is now true of my grandchildren as well.

My interests are many but the lions share includes Science, Land Surveying, Geomatics, GNSS, Geology, Astronomy, Anthropology, Sociology, Psychology, Philosophy, Technology, News, Emergency Response, and Texas Holdem.
