    A few more things about myself.

    As you can probably tell from my avatar, I enjoyed fishing a great deal until dry macular degeneration causes me to lose enough eyesight that I can no longer tied flies and small hooks to my line. I also enjoy playing at golf when I can find someone that is willing to watch my ball. My wife and I both enjoy NASCAR and now watch avidly on television. We have been to a total of eight of the tracks where Sprint cup races are run. We have a motor home in which we have visited every State in the Union with the exception of Hawaii. We flew there. Finally, my wife and I are both active in our local Lions Club. I am our club's secretary and my wife is the District Secretary. I compete my duties by using the computer blown up to a bout 450%.

    One additional thing. about two years ago, I voluntarily exhanaged my drivers license for a picture ID from the Motor Vehicle Department.

    I really think I am going to enjoy it here. Thanks for the warm welcome.

    Oh, and do I need to say that I am somewhat liberal?

    I'm sorry to hear about your eyesight. It is nice that some things can be compensated for, like using a computer at 450%.

    Welcome.

    Welcome...

    We could use another somewhat liberal. This place is somewhat conservative.
