I have lived in California all my adult life, growing up in the 60’s 70’s and 80’s in Northern and Southern California along with all the great things that came with that. There was the San Francisco music scene around the Fillmore Auditorium in the 60’s, UC Berkeley and being a book publisher in the 70’s (yes, remember real books printed on paper etc.?), and a pioneer in the computer industry in the 80’s. Then comes the good part, two wonderful daughters, a great wife and adapting to the brave new digital world of computers, instant communication, cell phones, The Net, iStuff, Netflix and DirecTV. I hope to make this site fun with lists of some of the things that have influenced me; it will be interesting to see what you (the reader) and I share as likes, dislikes, heroes and villians.
