After graduation life became an adventure, including some college, lots of travel and just learning to enjoy life. My education has been diversified to say the least attending several colleges and universities a few courses at a time and ending my formal education at Iowa State.
My occupations have been many, with the last 35 years spent in broadcasting
in one form or another. I have many things I love, my wife Chris, my daughter
Paula and my son Shad. I love also love Ames and Iowa. What I am and what I will
be is always grateful to the people and things that have surrounded my life in
this great part of the country we live in. The are a lot of things I've left out
but I'm sure we'll share more as you continue to visit this site.
I still somewhat boggled in this day and age as to why we continue to make Muscle Cars. Several American Companies have decided to bring back the carefree gas is cheaper days for us boomers. The latest will be the 2014 Chevy Camaro Z28. This car is rigged for speed, seats are stiffer, only one speaker, less insulation and air conditioning is optional. It boasts a 500 hp engine, unless you're headed for the "strip" I can see no practical purpose. If they think we boomers are going to snatch these up, they need to remember we're headed for fixed incomes and most of us are pretty much done with cruising the loop for chicks. I can't think of anything more frightening than seeing the tuft of white hair sticking up over the drivers seat of one of these baby's.
