About Me
Mildly insane 63 year old man who lives on Long Island. Long time gamer, though not one of those gotta win guys. I like to play for the joy of playing. Ask any of my Pax Romana game mates! I've worked in the retail and distribution side of the music industry since 1971. And what a long strange trip that has been.
Personal Interests (favorite activities, movies, shows, books, music, etc.)
I'm into Sci Fi and History, espescialy naval history from 1880 to 1920 or so. My movie and music tastes are all over the place, but centered on Sci Fi and History.
I used to be a Civil War (ACW) buff, but not so much these days.

Just an FYI - In another life, I was a math instructor, checked out on everything from basic to advanced Calc, plus Stats. (If you want differential equations I might have to break open a book.) Plus I've tutored three bosses and one neice and one ex- almost son-in-law through the tough stuff, so if you have any questions, feel free to ask. Happy to be an additional resource!

Darn! Wish I'd caught this when you left it! Yes, I was! And specifically, I was hoping to catch you. I had some weeks on the Island, and was hoping we could get together to game. Left you message on the LI Yahoo group.

I did play a few turns of Glory III with Anthony Friday....

Thanks for Joining Miniature Games John we seem to be getting a lot of us "old" 50+guys;^) I like Sci Fi as well as historical myself.

Thanks for the heads up on the convention. It does look like I will be either in Rochester or Buffalo or Erie the weeks on either side of it, so I might give it a go!

Ummmm... wha????

John - thanks for the chance to test drive the L2 version of TRC today. I enjoyed it - but it seems unfair that we quit just when you'd get the chance to 'strike back.' Really unfair- so I owe you one. Hope we don't wait so long in between rounds!

Any chance on Saturday?

Hey - I'd like another shot at Wooden Ships & Iron Men - or a chance to try my hand at TRC again!

Hope things are going well for you!
