Like my father, I drive nails for a living. This is after a number of years teaching in the public schools, a few years in radio to get through college, an MS degree in computing, and many post graduate hours in Evolutionary Biology.
I've also worked as a driver, a wrangler, and a river guide in the Southwest among other things.
I've been on a paleo dig in Wyoming, a reef study on Roatan Island, a butterfly study in Ecuador, a lemur study in Madagascar and had the wonderful opportunity to visit many other parts of the world.
Most days I think that I am the only conservative in Boulder Colorado. And some days I know I am.
Fortunately I have the option of working on a house in the much more moderate Grand County Colorado. I spend about a half of my time there.
I've been writing a blog since April of 2002. If you can call poorly spelled, snarky comments writing. It is at www.americankestrel.com/blog/.
And I spend every second I can with my twin grand daughters.
