Fun Facts

  • I first went online in 1983 (CompuServe @ 300 baud.) Been hooked ever since.
  • Strangers ask me for directions wherever I go, even when I’m lost too.
  • I always have been a fast reader and a bit a sponge for info.
  • I sometimes see things that others overlook. That comes in handy in my chosen line of work.

One from my bucket list

In 2008 I acquired an unmarked shiny black Ford Crown Victoria V8 Police Interceptor from a suburban Kansas City Police Dept. I then drove it back cross-country to New York – much to the chagrin of speeding motorists in six states.

Less than a year later the car was stolen in Manhattan – much to MY chagrin and the disbelief of the NYPD.
