I'm a computer programmer (AS/400 RPGILE) who works and resides in Brooklyn, NY, USA.
I live in the same house I came to from the hospital when I was born in 1947.
A previous employer, for whom I worked for 18 years, allowed me to save up my vacation so every few years I would spend a month visiting my friend in Sydney and traveling throughout Australia.
I also made a one-month bike trip in southern China in 1984.
Hence my entries in Wikipedia reflecting my interest in Australia and China.
Other interest include:
- Backyard Beekeeping
- Reading science fiction and mysteries.
- Riding my BikeE recumbent bicycle on the weekends with the Five Borough Bike Club.
- Kite flying.
- More then occasional imbibing of fine microbrew beers.
- Rescuing, neutering and caring for the odd stray street cat.
