This webpage has no particular purpose other than to gather some of my thoughts in one location.

I am experienced in a few areas, knowledgeable in several and totally ignorant in many more. There is no disgrace in not knowing something. There is disgrace in not trying to learn. I try to keep an open mind and welcome different views if presented in a civil manner. If one of us can't convert the other, at least we will know the opposing arguments.

I have no particular political affiliation. I am a Vietnam Vet who is loyal to my country rather than my government. I believe in helping those who can't help themselves. Those who can and don't, are just SOL. Hunger is a great motivator. Fry your brain with drugs if you like but don't expect me wipe your drool. The war on drugs was lost years ago.

I am an ASE Certified Master Automobile Mechanic (retired). I hold an ASEL private pilot certificate. I'm interested in all types of aircraft, especially homebuilt light and ultralight.

Prescription without diagnosis is medicine and mechanics. You wouldn't use a doctor who prescribed treatment without examining you. Why put up with a mechanic who changes parts without testing to find what is actually causing the problem.

A quote from John Stricker, a Kansas farmer, "I didn't rise to the top of the food chain to become a vegetarian." I believe in humane treatment of animals whether livestock or pets.

The older I get and the less time I have left, the more valuable it becomes. If you want some of my time, you sure as heck better not waste it.
