I grew up in Canton, Ohio, in high school suffering through Presidents Nixon, Ford and Carter (yes, all three) and the horrors of Disco (if you were there then, you'd understand). From there I went to Kent State University (no, I wasn't there for the shooting, but was there for the ten year anniversary riot) to study archaeology and then to Penn State University. The area is quite lovely and thus here it is 26 years later and I'm still here. Today I drive taxi and substitute teach in the area High Schools. When not working I enjoy summer evenings, long walks in the park and.....ack! sorry 'bout that, awful cliches stole my brain....Really, I do medieval recreation, contra-dancing and raised my daughter who's now a sophomore in college. Well, that's about all for now.
