About me

Industry Construction
Occupation retired workaholic
Location southwestern USA, United States
Introduction I've always been intrigued by the late dark age Anglo-Saxon king, Ethelred the Unready. His name is kind of a dark age pun deriving from Ethel=noble, Raed=with counsel, Unraed=no counsel. Most historians consider him to have been a blundering, indecisive, unprepared, ill-advised incompetent. Please please let me always be Raed ...
Interests anthropology, desert hiking, trying to stay healthy in an increasingly sick world, stimulating conversation, evolution, looking for the missing link.
Favorite Movies Dr Strangelove, Nashville, M*A*S*H, A Clockwork Orange, The Big Lebowski, etc/etc/I am easily entertained (that's not a movie title).
Favorite Music Bob Dylan, Neil Young, Robbie Robertson, Crowded House, Beatles, Beethoven, Steve Earle, Pink Floyd, Sting, U2, and most anything gaelic.
Favorite Books science fiction, world history, all Kurt Vonnegut, most Hunter S. Thompson, most John Irving (if you don't cry reading "Trying to Save Piggy Sneed" you're not human), John Kennedy Toole: "A Confederacy of Dunces", and Anne Rice's vampire & witch novels.

You have a red jar of cedar chips. Why do moths miss the forest?

this question makes about as much sense as pro-wrestling & therefore I will give it the same treatment & turn the channel (zap). oh wait, it's a RED JAR, hmmm, I better inspect those commie moths!
