Interests Unlike The Days of Our Lives- busy shoving the sands of the hourglass back into the top glass. <b></br> I'm legally known as Jim Meyer and I happen to share a birthday with Groucho Marx-whom I admire for his dry humour and comically cynical wit. <b></br> Kansas City weather and news wonk since I was but an urban kid in the late 1950s when I was scared to pants-peeing by a major tornado- then teared-up like a little baby for the dead firemen when a fuel tank exploded., <b></br> Teared-up again when our President died November 22 1963., <b></br> Was a charter member of the first teenager owned and operated private public weather service in 1967. <b></br> At that time began the many years and current work with the local broadcast media- providing information to the Metro's citizens. <b></br> On top of the criteria maintaining the previously-stated life's work was 5-year stints in meditational pursuits- firefighting- special-deputy sheriffing and security alarm monitoring. <b></br> Lesser stints included moving- roofing- plumbing dishwashing- musician- dock worker- warehouse worker- production worker- tennis court builder- dishwasher- custodial- toilet cleaning plus other stints I can't right-off remember but probably will someday.
