"Horse sense is the thing a horse has which keeps it from betting on people." -W. C. Fields Raised as an outdoorsman in Arkansas. Gave life to Christ in 1971. Solid complete family life. Lived in Oregon briefly. Finished High School. Skipped military service. Attended college for 6 years. Defeated cancer. SCUBA certified and wanted to live underwater. First job was mowing, 2nd radio station DJ, 3rd chemical delivery, 4th aluminum smelting. Avid reader of sci-fi, mysteries, and thrillers. Married in 1986. Two daughters. Kind to animals and people. Hate bugs that crawl fast. Like cooking and eating what I cook. Hate beets and olives. Posted to a recent article about layoof in WSJ I said this about my career: "Friend I have been laid off more times than I care to remember. Twice caused by disaster- Shuttle Challenger, and Arthur-Andersen (Enron). Four times by bankruptcy- McDonnell-Douglas, Consolidated Vista Land Development, Living Naturally LLP and SF Services Farmers Co-op System. Twice by merger buyout (redundent employee decision) HEMCO->CSMI->USNR and Euronet Services LLP. I've also been laid off because the boss' daughter wanted her friend to have my job-> rubberband.com I also suspect I was laid off because I was white. This was at Arkansas State Bank Department where EEO was becoming a strong trend. So all of my morale has been spent and my backpack of Bachelor's Degree self-confidence empty. Now I'm a janitor and have been for nearly 10 years. I'm doing what nobody else with college diplomas wants to do.
