Frank (that's an older picture from the early 90's)
A few words about myself - I was
born in the northeast, and moved around the country quite a bit from the mid-70's
to the mid-90's. Places I've lived include San Francisco, Boston, New York, Florida (briefly),
and Eugene, Oregon. During that time, one of the places I lived the longest was in
upstate NY north of Binghamton. I resided in Asheville, NC from 1996 - 2010, and now
we are living in Pennsylvania. I enjoy the outdoors, surfing the Web, programming and anything
else computer-related, classic rock, photography, trains, ham radio and electron tube circuits,
history, and (especially in my younger days) many areas dealing with alternative spirituality,
science fact and fiction and the paranormal. I had been single most of my life, and though I had made
some good connections with interesting ladies over the years, nothing seemed to stick for too long.
I met wife Wanda during my travels in the inventory business, we kept in touch and eventually
were married in September, 2003. There's a link below for pictures from our trip to Niagara Falls and New York from that time.
For my web visitors, I'm always open to new contacts of similar interests to build up a good network of friends. I was briefly (just over a year each) involved with two Zen communities in the 80's, for one of which I was on the office staff as computer programmer. My spiritual interests range from Zen to Native American, Celtic, metaphysics, philosophy and just about anything which piques my interest, though as I get older, I've become more of an internet junkie, and do most of my reading there. I've had a good deal of experience in carpentry, electrical and related construction over the years, mostly as a hobby, and from doing quite a bit of work to just about every place I've owned. I've lived a (sort-of) back-to-the-land lifestyle out in the woods a few times, as well as a year helping on an organic produce farm near Eugene, Oregon. I've gotten back into Ham Radio again (since around 2008), a hobby I'd neglected for over 30 years.
On the other pages of this site are various links I've found to be of interest, I hope you enjoy checking them out. Most were taken from my own bookmarks, and cover some interesting, unusual, and entertaining sites.
