Please note - this is a copy of my old site - I am going to tear this apart as I make my new site
Some links will stop working as I delete pages

I am redoing some of this stale format!

I know this format is old and I put it up in the old days of 14,400 being fast.

OK I am well over 30...  Very close to 40...... 
I was born April 16, 1967, (it was a Sunday) so I have two choices, and being over 30 is the better of the two (not by much some days).

For the first 18 years of my life, I lived in Springfield MA., the largest city in Western Massachusetts I graduated with honors from Classical High School in 1985. While there I joined the Chess Club and studied both BASIC and Pascal. Thus the choices I made in high school have affected my life. I also met April Dearborn who 13 years later became my wife and 2 years after that decided to become my ex-wife. 
Though we had some common friends during my senior year of high school, I never met my wife Nancy Comtois during that time.  I met her while she was my sister's roomate in 2001.  We got engaged in 2003 and married in 2004, with Victoria's approval.

While in high school, I was a member the Brownstone Chapter order of Demolay Also in 1984 I grew up and became a Republican, though I was not allowed to vote. Also that summer I lived and worked at St. Rose's Home in New York City. My mother's aunt, Sr. David was Mother Superior at the time.

Taking my parents' advice, I looked for a college with a work-study program. Taking my parents' money, I chose The College of Computer Science at Northeastern University in Boston, because of their co-op program. I finally graduated in 1990.5 => June 1991.

!!! Danger !!!

The next paragraph describes life over 30 and may be very boring
Now I'm living in Derby CT, which is along Route 34 West of New Haven and 13 miles north of Bridgeport along Route 8 in the Naugatuck (The Indian word for "nowhere special") :-) Valley. It's about 1 hr. from New York City.

Words to Live by

Hope for the best
Prepare for the worst
- Me


Nothing in the world can take the place of persistence.
Talent will not, nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent.
Genius will not, unrewarded genius is almost a proverb.
Education will not, the world is full of educated derelicts.
Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.
The slogan "Press On" has solved and always will solve the problems of the human race
Joe D. Batten and Leonard C. Hudson
My 2 One needs at least one of the three to make Persistence worth while, but without determination one with any or all three is useless.
The days go by slow
but the years go by fast
