Hi! Some of these have been written because I really think they will be interesting to other people. Others have been written because people asked, and if one asks, maybe one or two more might someday ask so easier to answer here so I can refer people if they really care. There are sadly some aspects of my life that I can't share in a public forum. For example, my adopted son, before we adopted him I couldn't say ANYTHING publicly. Then after adopting him, my wife and I agreed that, like our adult children, we would not put much if anything on the web about him, to preserve his anonymity. When he is older, he can decide whether he wants to make himself less private.
